Business and IT analysis for Data integration project

Digitization of state services is progressing, but without proper data’s exchange and sharing between institutions, it is not possible to use its full potential. We were hired to analyze the business and IT requirements of individual state institutions so the “once-only” principle for citizens (G2C) and for companies (G2B) could be achieved.

CAREER

What are Ingrediencies that Make Aspiro Different? It comes down to a few words, which best describe what it feels like working in Aspiro. However, there is much more to it and we would be happy to discuss it with you in person.

SMALL AND FAST

Aspiro is a small but professional firm. Everyone knows everyone, people are listened to and their opinions are considered.
We often work in small teams, consisting only of a manager/partner and consultant, occasionally engaging experts with specifics subject matter expertise, which creates plenty of opportunities to learn fast and get experiences working with senior people who know their stuff and business for tens of years.

MERITOCRACY

We reward excellence and recognize when people are working hard to achieve their personal and project goals. On every step of the way, consultants receive feedback to help them improve their job performance and motivate them after an achievement. Our career coaching system enables you to set personal development goals on a biannual basis, fostering fast learning and growth.

INTERNATIONAL

Although being originally founded in Slovakia, Aspiro has projects all around the world, mainly the Europe, Balkans, Turkey, and Central Asia and some as far as Asia.
We often cooperate with international consultants and business partners and have international people in our internal team.

VALUE

Cliché it may sound, we mean it. Delivering value is key aspect of everything we do and it keeps us in the business long term.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

We are always bit unsettled thus always seeking something new. Therefore, Aspiro extended traditional definition of consulting by engaging in new business ventures where our consultants get a taste of what it takes to bring an idea from paper to real life.
