The Axience Blog

Welcome to Axience!

I am a late starter in blogging but I plan and promise to make it up for the delay. The Axience Blog is going to cover variety of topics in the business world and will also give you a sneak pick in to what life at Axience is all about.

Axience provides Business Intelligence and Outsourcing services firm. Our services are delivered in the form of consultancy services for specific issues or more long term relationship for database subscriptions or turnkey outsourcing solutions. It focuses on High end business intelligence/consultancy and outsourcing services and derives its’ strength from the knowledge of the European markets and an onshore/offshore model to exploit cost and talent availability arbitrage.

Our core expertise is in Financial Services market but we plan to grow by both increasing our penetration in our focus industries and by entering new industries and geographies.

The firm has been founded by Hemant Jain, who most recently set up and managed India offices of a business intelligence firm where he hired, trained and led a staff of 90 people. The India centre was responsible of managing proprietary business intelligence databases of top global investment banks and delivered several business intelligence reports to clients who include COOs, Business Managers and Head of Strategy at these banks. Prior to that, Hemant worked at Morgan Stanley’s securitization division in London as Associate. Hemant holds an MBA from the HEC School of Management, Paris and an engineering degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. He has also worked with Schlumberger Industries at their Paris office before his MBA and speaks French fluently.

In next few days, I will be updating this blog with what I have been up to, where is company heading and who are our clients. So till then stay tuned.
