From our first conversation, it was obvious that the D&B team’s relentless focus on data quality, meaningful insight and anticipation of customer needs was perfectly aligned with our own. Their goal to make data access easier through modern delivery channels spoke to everything I love about cloud BI, and I knew we’d found a great fit," Cunningham told friends of Indicee by email as the announcement broke.
