    Experian shrugs off size to go nimbly into the API economy

    Klaus Schwab, economist, engineer and founder of the World Economic Forum once said: In the new world, it is not the big fish which eats the small fish, it's the fast fish which eats the slow fish.

    IT ops will reap the benefits of API economy, too

    Resistance to the API economy is futile -- even IT operations will be assimilated. APIs began as the domain of developers, but the benefits of API use also include the ability to automate IT incident resolution and integrate ops management products even where vendors don't offer the integrations natively.

To understand our history, you have to look past the organization known today as Experian.
Back to when our parent companies gained traction in lines of business that would take decades, and in some cases a century, to cross. As is the case with many documented bloodlines, it is sometimes the most unlikely of pairings that combine to produce a great champion.

Likewise, the story of Experian can be traced back as far as 1900, across three continents, to three primary organizations. Over the subsequent century, a series of events, mergers, splits, and reorganizations would uniquely position the combination of Europe’s leading information services company, CCN; the largest credit bureau in the U.S., TRW; and Brazil’s first credit agency, Serasa to form Experian—the world's leading information services company.


“Experian is a remarkable success story about a business built on innovation, global enterprise, and above all, the endeavors and hard work of some amazing people.”
– Sir John Peace

    Pros

    Strong leadership team, much more frequent communication from CEO and other leaders. I like the in-person town halls. It is great that we are trying new venues (i.e. streaming webcasts) and inviting more leaders to talk informally about key initiatives that are going on across NA.

    Cons

    Need to continue to focus on innovation and more importantly, help to educate employees that innovation can be simple ideas of how to improve processes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work on communication and continue to bring the brand work forward.
