myInvenio is an idea. Like most ideas, myInvenio comes from inspiration and from experience. The inspiration stems from OT Consulting, an ICT company with over 20 years of successful history, 70 people and a solid growth rate. It took shape through daily interactions with customers in Banking, Automotive, Public Sector & Fashion, including Ferrari, Maserati, Max Mara, Swarovski, Accenture and Credem Bank. The idea crystallized when OT inspiration and solid management met the experience of industry strategists, experienced developers and product marketing execs with background in global software. The inspiration became myInvenio. The experience became Cognitive Technology, myInvenio’s home.
