Entity Group was founded in 1987. Its first customer was Merrill Lynch, which commissioned Entity Group to advise and guide it through the complexity of FSA regulation reporting requirements. Then Daihatsu and Renault required solutions that solved some of the complexity of business trading activities between the importer and their widely dispersed dealer outlets, using a combination of bespoke applications and EDI technologies. Entity’s reputation began to develop, leading to it building bespoke manufacturing process automation solutions for Quest International, a fragrances manufacturing company within the Unilever Group.
Throughout the 90’s Entity Group delivered bespoke solutions across the automotive, finance and insurance, manufacturing, education and not for profit sectors, and built long term relationships with a number of companies, who, to this day, trust Entity as their technology partner. These long-term clients include:
By the mid 2000’s, Entity Group’s skills base had become varied across a number of data management technologies as bespoke development, by its nature, often required learning of new skillsets.
In 2006, this core understanding of how to help companies extract value from their data and from their information, developed through building numerous bespoke solutions for clients, resulted in Entity Group being invited by Initiate Systems (at the time the largest global pure-play Master Data Management software vendor) to provide implementation and support services to its fledgling EMEA operations, and this relationship flourished throughout subsequent years until Initiate was acquired by IBM.
Towards the end of the 2010s it became apparent that Entity Group’s generalist bespoke solution delivery business model was under threat from the commoditisation of software development services by offshore companies. It was also apparent that Entity Group was well positioned in a niche information management market with high growth expectations. Thus in 2011 Entity Group hired James Wilkinson to spearhead its growth into the information management market.
Since 2011 Entity Group has experienced impressive growth, quadrupling in size and revenues. The company now works with many global partners such as Informatica, IBM, Semarchy, Capgemini and many more. Entity Group is highly regarded by these global software vendors and its data domain expertise often sees it called in to solve unusual or highly-challenging business data issues on their behalf.
In July 2018 Entity Group joined forces with Jibes, based in the Netherlands. The combined group will focus on helping customers with their digital transformation through the governance, management and exploitation of critical data assets.
