THE BIRTH OF
THE TIMi PROJECT
The TIMi project was born from a will to integrate ethics in the new technologies sector. Our corporate culture is based on moral and ethical values that drive us to Excellence. This is reflected in each of our decisions and each of our developments.
PRESERVE YOUR AUTONOMY
You take the control
When it comes to creating or evolving your analytical system, the TIMi Suite allows you to keep control over your costs without having to depend on third parties. We position ourselves as a software company accessible to all data scientists, whether they are expert coders or citizen data scientists. We allow everyone to take control of their analyses easily and independently.Read more
You stay in control
Because of its simplicity, the TIMi Suite gives you the assurance to keep your business expertise in-house and capitalize on it for the future. Thus, you avoid having to start from scratch when a “key” collaborator leaves you. Your whole team, and not just one person, will be leading the evolution of the work already done. You can thus devote yourself fully to your “core business”.
We remain objective about the challenges that drive you. Our clients ask us for advice on various digital needs (related to TIMi or others) and we always respond to them by taking into account their long-term perspectives. We wish to make our clients grow by making them autonomous through open and frank communication. The knowledge of each one is thus enriched.
As a European company specialized in data analysis, we adhere to Europe’s core values for the protection of the digital lives of its citizens.
When working with TIMi, you can rest assured that the highly ethical European rules regarding the protection of confidential data and their use are fully respected.
EXCELLENCE VS “LOCK-IN”
The excellence of our solution allows it to impose itself naturally as the ideal solution.
1. No entry lock-in
No “lock-in” situation with high initial investment costs such as activation fees or infrastructure costs.
At TIMi, you only pay an annual license fee that includes access to tools, updates, support and training.
Since there is no activation fee, you are free to switch to another technology at any time without losing any initial investment.
2. No cost and start up time lock-in
It is common to invest several months of work in a technology before deploring the inadequacy of the chosen solution. At this point, there is no turning back because too much time and money has been invested.
On the contrary, the TIMi Suite is operational from the very first days, without having to wait several weeks or even months to see that our solutions meet your needs.
3. No lock-in on data input/output flows
You have full access to your data at all times for any use. In the same data transformation performed with TIMi, data passes freely from one technology to another without constraint. TIMi easily integrates all current technologies: Connect freely the data from TIMi, your CRM, your ERP, your Big Data, Excel…
You are no longer tied to a family of products from the same company.
4. No technology lock-in
We are open to all technologies, including open-source technologies (R & Python) at no extra cost!
Moreover, we developed a unique technology that removes the limitations of the R & Python language on the data volumetry. With TIMi, there are practically no more volume limits: You are not constrained anymore by the RAM available in your server. You will only find this feature in TIMi!
We refuse to favor a particular cloud technology. With TIMi, you are free to choose your technological environment, on the cloud or not, but most of all, without extra cost.
5. No visibility lock-in
Code obfuscation is a reality today. It typically consists in hiding how a simple process is working by writing overly complicated code to prevent anyone else from understanding the process and therefore preventing anyone to regain the full control of the process.
Many consultants deploy “obfuscated” solutions so that they are the only one that can maintain and improve the solution. Their objective is that you remain constantly dependent on their expensive services.
With TIMi it is almost impossible to obfuscate anything.
The consultants using TIMi have your best interest in mind because they deliver to you the plain ownership of the processes and the data. They quickly provide you with an advanced solution that you can easily improve and maintain by yourself in-house.Read more
6. No code lock-in
Business opportunities, innovations, administrative simplifications… are postponed ad vitam aeternam due to the lack of availability of the IT department. Indeed, this department is often limited in the number of employees trained in the selected computer language.
The TIMi Suite, because of its ease of use, is accessible to all people in all departments. The company thus gains in agility and autonomy in each of the departments.
Our technology thus inaugurates an analytical culture in which each employee contributes to the continuous improvement of his or her organization.
7. No “divas” lock-in
It is not uncommon to meet “divas”: i.e. “Key” employees who are the only ones to master the selected computer language. These “divas” represent an important risk because :
- They impose a limited choice of technologies to promote their own interest to the detriment of the company’s interest. Your company is stagnating with obsolete technologies (e.g. SAS,Spark)
- A company’s analytical system collapse when they leave.
Thanks to TIMi, your computer system is no longer dependent on the goodwill of a “diva”. Indeed, TIMi values more the business expertise rather than the ability to write code, allowing the greatest number of people to contribute to the digital evolution of the company.
8. No exit lock-in
There are many one-way analytical systems: Data comes in but it is very difficult, if not impossible, to get it out, even if you pay for it!
TIMi refuses to take your data hostage. You are free at any time, at no cost, to have all your data for any use, in any system, with any technology.
TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP
The “Total Cost of Ownership” of an open source solution (without license fees) may seem attractive, but in reality, nowadays most of the costs come from :
- Unethical behavior, especially from external consultants (who charge you several months of work to create and then manage your analytical stack).
- Training costs for your staff. It usually takes months before a new employee can work effectively on your analytical system, as they have to familiarize themselves with thousands of lines of complex code (Python, R, Scala).
- Infrastructure costs (especially if you decide to go “in the cloud”). It sounds cheap at first, but it becomes very expensive, very quickly.
OUR TOOLS ARE 100% FREE
to all humanitarian companies or projects
We want to offer to everybody the possibility to look at their data as easily and efficiently as possible because we believe that we can build and live in a better world if we start using more the data that surrounds us. This is why our tools and solutions are 100% for free for:
- Charity Companies, NGO’s, humanitarian companies
- Any consulting company engaged in charity or humanitarian work
- Video Game Makers (because we love video games!)
