"Kogent acquired BIT advisors because we knew the firm was on the fast track as a dominant player in the Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing market," said Kogent's Chief Executive Officer Sudhir Saxena. "By assembling a team of leading BI strategists and consultants like those at BIT advisors, Kogent's North American presence will continue to experience explosive growth."

Kogent Corporation is the first North American firm dedicated exclusively to providing prebuilt, industry-specific Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing and Analytics solutions that help companies make smarter business decisions.  Brian Jordan, Kogent's Executive Vice President and former Chief Executive Officer of BIT advisors, will spearhead Kogent's continued growth in the eastern United States and Canada.

"The leaders of the companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression," said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. "The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs."
