I’m David Smulders from BiTQ – we are a business intelligence and data analytics company that make data useful.
BiTQ had two employees only two and a half years ago and today we hire 17 people and are growing.
Our business supplies to the Queensland Government.
We work with a lot of Queensland Government agencies, we also work in infrastructure and development, so there’s not an aspect in government that we don’t work with.
We do enjoy working with the Queensland Government because we truly believe in making data useful. It’s got benefit for government, it’s got benefit for citizens of Queensland and it’s got benefit for everyone as a whole.
