Who are we?

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.

This is why Tengu by Qrama nv exists and why we'll keep on building this future together with our team, customers and partners.

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

Tengu 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.
