Here are the 3 steps that worked for us.

First, we looked for the best people – we scanned for brains, skills and attitude.

Next, we added some challenging software development projects to the mix, rinsed and repeated as needed and….voila! Here we are today: Qubiz made the Financial Times’ top 1000 Fastest growing companies in Europe list on position 184. Check it out here. Sweet, right?

For the last couple of years, Big Data has constantly been on the most significant technologies list. And it’s pretty important to understand why.

Why Big Data?

Big Data is powerful because it can create a lot of targeted information from an awful lot of diverse, mixed and somewhat unstructured data.

For companies, Big Data means accurate, detailed business data that translate into improved operational performance. Upper management can use Big Data insights to improve forecasts and decision making. Big Data can also reveal new market segments, and spark ideas for new products and services.

What’s more, its applications can impact almost any sector: healthcare, manufacturing, retail, media, etc.

- Posted in Blog, Projects & Know-How

With machine learning, artificial intelligence and the internet of things taking up much of the conversation in 2016, chances are that you haven’t heard about digital transformation that often.

Still, digital transformation is a process that almost any company will have to go through at some point – if they want to stay in business. A Forrester Research insight estimates that companies that don’t make the transition within the next 10 years will either go out of business or be acquired. (source)

Yet, CEOs and upper management are not always sure where to start or how to navigate a digital transformation – the process of realigning investment in new technology, business models, and operations in order to drive value and to compete more effectively in an ever-changing digital economy.

So, we put together a list of the best materials on digital transformation published in 2016 to lend a helping hand.

‘Tis the season to give back

At Qubiz we strongly believe in helping others. It starts from the inside, with our colleagues. We help them by getting them into a position in which they can do their best work. Next, our colleagues help our clients through the software solutions they build, test and deliver. This, in turn, helps our company grow.

And yet, for us, helping others isn’t restricted to the office or to working hours. No man is an island, entire of itself, every man is part of a continent. That applies at a company level too. We’re not on our own, we’re part of a community – both in Oradea and in Cluj-Napoca.

There is no shortage of business success stories in the media. Some of them are allegedly overnight successes – one lucky individual who managed to transform an idea into a very profitable business. Other stories are closer to the truth: they bring up the highs and lows, the steps it took to get there.

But it’s only a few of all those stories that mention one of the top ingredients for success: great teams. Which is why we landed our latest distinction and why we’re doing this article today.

Introducing TEDx in Oradea

Published On November 2, 2016

What do you think of when you see an “X”?

In maths, it stands for something that’s unknown, the solution to a problem you need to solve. In real life, when we say X, we generally add a ‘my/your/his/her’ before it and refer to the past – some situation, story or relationship that taught you important lessons.

Then there are maps. When you look at a map and you see an X, you know where you are, your approximate position within a specific space.

And there’s the X that stands next to TED. In this context, it means independently organized TED event. OK – maths, histories and maps, all those sound familiar. But what’s TEDx?
