Who We Are

At Tengu we believe that every company should be able to use their data to build the most relevant products and services for their customers and citizens.

That's why Tengu exists and will keep on building this future together with our customers.

Years ago, Tengu was originally created during the PhD of Thomas Vanhove at Ghent University to support researchers in big data experimentation.

The DataOps Interface got a following among researchers at the IDLab research group and was used in several projects together with industry partners such as ID&T, VRT and Newsmonkey.
