Twenty-five years ago (June 21, 1989 to be exact), a company called S&P Consult was founded in Germany by Herbert Vogel and Wolfgang Schmidt with a focus on SAP consulting for controlling and logistics. With three initial employees and an ambition to “build a company with a great culture,” it’s safe to say the mission has been a big success. Today, itelligence AG employs more than 3,000 professionals in 22 countries, including more than 450 itelligence Inc. North American employees in the U.S. and Canada. In 2013, the company achieved global revenue in excess of $457 MEUR. In honor of itelligence’s 25th Anniversary, we will be featuring a weekly series of 25 top moments (largely North American focused for this blog) and the impact they had for the company and our wonderful customers. We hope you enjoy the series!

As the curtains have closed on the XXII Olympic winter games, we take a look back at the many milestones achieved throughout the last 90 years of these games. On this day in particular (in 1988), Bonnie Blair set the world record for 500m speed skating in a record 39.1 seconds. Since that time, the record broke many times and the speed continues to astound spectators. Like speed skating, technology continues to evolve at a speed that is sometimes hard to believe. At the time of that big skate in ’88, think of where we were with technology: the Netherlands just became the second country to get connected to the Internet. How far we’ve come!
Speedy technological advancements have allowed organizations like itelligence and SAP to exceed customer expectations and deliver exceptional value. Through solutions like SAP HANA, itelligence helps empower businesses with a solution that combines cutting-edge analytical capabilities with high-speed transaction processing. This opens the door to dramatic improvements in the speed of business processes and allows businesses to generate the analytical insights that are essential to ongoing innovation. As itelligence continues to help customers streamline processes and think outside of the box, it does warrant the question: what will businesses look like in another 26 years? What do you think it will look like?
