We are Advian – Your shortcut to success.

Gain an unfair competitive advantage with Refined Analytics solutions.

We develop your business and the supporting architecture to jointly utilize new opportunities created by location, data, and emerging technologies.

We founded Advian so that you wouldn’t have to make decisions based on guesswork in a world full of data. 

Our journey began in 2019, when a group of professionals got frustrated to see how the big words such as AI, big data and advanced analytics were misused for forced sale of consultation hours 

We are only interested in the success of your organization. We intend to only use relevant materials from the bottomless data silos, combine it with new data and together with location intelligence, build unfair competitive advantage. As our unbribable assistants, we use e.g. artificial intelligence and advanced analytics.
