biGENIUS has secured fresh investment of 2 million euros, as the software firm from Pratteln in the canton of Basel-Landschaft writes in a press release. The financing comes of the back of the release of a new solution for analytical data automation. “As a new product, we can design biGENIUS-X to effectively adapt to the ever-changing data landscape”, comments Thomas Gassmann, Chief Technology Officer of biGENIUS, in the press release. “We have developed a solution geared toward data engineers, with innovative features to help data teams manage the increasing volume and complexity of data”, he adds.
biGENIUS AG was founded in 2021 as a spin-off from the IT service provider Trivadis, which is based in Glattbrugg in the canton of Zurich and has since been taken over by Accenture. The startup from Pratteln specializes in the development of analytical data automation solutions. The company explains in the press release that the new biGENIUS-X solution was developed independently of the established Windows application biGENIUS 7, which has been available since 2011.
New CEO on board
In the same press release, biGENIUS also communicates a change at board level. Accordingly, Gerald Klump was appointed as the new CEO with effect from October 2. The former co-CEO of Trivadis, who was later the Managing Director of Accenture DACH, succeeds Gregor Zeiler as CEO of biGENIUS.
