Bring AI into Business Intelligence

Pilot contract, meeting KPN Ventures & coaching Deadline passed

KPN and Get in the Ring are challenging startups with solutions focused on Smart Data Discovery. Work together with KPN to implement new solutions and help improve how KPN uses Business Intelligence (BI) reports.


KPN is the largest telecom and IT service provider in the Netherlands. As they explain it: “Our network is Dutch to the core. We have a clear mission – to help the Netherlands move forward through that network. KPN truly believes in technology and in the power of communication. We are KPN. We are the network that enables the Netherlands to move forward – the network that cares for the Netherlands.”


KPN processes huge amounts of data and has Business and Customer information available in many forms, like (Sales) reports, performance dashboards, etc. These reports and dashboards are part of the Business Intelligence (BI) environment and help the company to look back on past performance. Every single day decisions are made using this information that directly and indirectly impact the way KPN interacts with its customers. As you can imagine with so many reports and dashboards available, there is still a lot of human involvement required to derive actionable insights from all this information to act upon.
