What are we about?
We see things differently.
Aize was born out of Aker to revolutionise project execution and operation in heavy-asset industries – using software to increase efficiency, improving collaboration and reducing cost. Expanding beyond the era of petroleum, and into renewables and other industries – as a consequence, we become a part of the big difference.
Heavy-asset projects have been managed, executed, and operated by the same principles for decades. But the way of working works – so why change it? Because the world is changing. We need to drastically change the way we harvest, produce, use and reuse the resources of our planet. Incremental change is no longer enough – we have to transform how we behave, lead and operate. To make it happen. To succeed we have to radically change, by thinking, acting and seeing everything differently.
Project execution is all about facilitating collaboration. Letting data collaborate. Creating applications that also let people collaborate. In the bigger picture, we humans got where we are because of our unique ability to work together.
There's not a challenge we can’t solve if we all pull in the same direction.
Curiosity killed the cat, they say. Well, luckily it has nine lives. Because at Aize, curiousity makes all the difference – literally. To see things differently, you have to be curious.
You need to always question what you see, look beyond what is in front of you and imagine how it could be better. You know what kills curiosity? Conformity. It’s a gateway drug to stagnation. So stay curious and stay away from conformity – isn’t that what it means to be a developer?
That was an odd value word, wasn’t it? Well, the reason these words exist is for you to have something to remember Aize by. So three words starting with a C sounded good. “Courage” might have worked. But would you have remembered?
Cucumber is to remind us that we need to be different. And we believe that we are the only company that uses this word to describe our values. So that’s different right there.
