Sonra = data
Sonra stands for many things but it literally means data … in Gaelic.
Well, being based in Dublin, it’s only fair that we took our name from the mother tongue.
Formed in 2015, our small team has a big reach.
We are led by founder and CEO, Uli Bethke, who is a veteran of the industry and has implemented dozens of data warehouse projects across four continents.
Over the years, we’ve assembled a team of advisors and data engineers to rival the industry’s most celebrated innovators, assisting everything from small data marts to large scale enterprises with multi-million-dollar budgets.
Sonra = innovation
When you can’t get the answers from existing data solutions, sometimes you have to create your own.
Our industry-leading data conversion tool Flexter is a great example. The solution we needed for rapid data conversion was simply not out there—so we built it.
Working on the bleeding edge of technology is considered part of the job at Sonra.
Sonra = passion
Data and passion don’t often go hand in hand but, at Sonra, they are married together.
We love what we do and get excited about new challenges.
This drives us to continuously improve and develop new solutions for clients, making it easier and more affordable to liberate data from silos and make better decisions.
Sonra = integrity
We value open and honest communication as an essential component of client relationships.
The gold-standard service we pride ourselves on is only possible because we are approachable, we listen and exchange ideas with clients, and we keep decision-makers in the loop throughout projects.
Sonra = leadership
