Forge Data Solutions Pty Ltd is part of the Forge Holdings group of companies and was founded in 1998 to sell Brio Technology’s business intelligence product and to supply training and consultancy services to Australian users of Brio. The OLAP Report, referred to Brio as a “pioneer of interactional relational analysis”, and praised its ease-of-use and basic-level security features.

This business was so successful that in October 2000 Forge created QIQ Solutions Pty Ltd to commercialise a range of Brio focused tools which FDS had developed to automate the creation of dashboards and manage report lifecycles (meta data). Following Hyperion’s acquisition of Brio in November 2003 Hyperion subsequently acquired QIQ Solutions in July 2004. Forge retained the QIQ spatial components from that sale and subsequently launched a new company Integeo (Integrated Geography) to continue development and commercialization of QIQ’s Map Intelligence product suite. Forge continued its close alliance with Hyperion which was then acquired by Oracle in March 2007.

FDS has a special focus on delivering solutions involving Integeo’s Map Intelligence which has turnkey options for all the major BI and GIS vendors as well as open source options.
Forge Data Solutions is based in Sydney with a branch office in Canberra.

FDS is a registered supplier on the NSW Government ICT Services Scheme for information management, software services including custom application development.

FDS is as an Endorsed Supplier to the Federal Government.
