In the intricate tapestry of Dante’s Inferno, the last and tenth Bolgia of the Eighth Circle is reserved for The Falsefiers, manifesting as the Alchemists, the Impersonators, the Counterfeiters, and the False Witnesses. From this rich literary backdrop springs forth our identity, BolgiaTen. Yet, we traverse the intricate maze of the ‘Data Inferno’, not Dante’s allegorical depiction.

Big Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Digital Transformation, and Innovation form the four pillars of our digital era, and BolgiaTen positions itself as the vanguard – an ‘end state’ eclipsing the challenging data landscape. Our vision is lucid: unveiling realms of truth, trust, transparency, accountability, and governance excellence in actionable insights. Our modus operandi is encapsulated in the BolgiaTen AI and Data Analytics D3P®:

  • Descriptive: Unraveling past occurrences.
  • Prescriptive: Charting the path forward.
  • Persuasive: Advocating for informed decisions.
  • Predictive: Anticipating the future.

With the ever-evolving Metaverse, Web 3.0, and the proliferation of AI, we find ourselves on the brink of a transformative era. The ascent of both Narrow and eventually General AI heralds an era rich in opportunities, yet fraught with challenges. At BolgiaTen, we champion a balanced embrace of these dual facets.

Generative AI, one of the most promising advancements in the AI sector, holds the potential to revolutionize content creation, solution crafting, and problem-solving by generating entirely new data sets or solutions based on learned patterns. At BolgiaTen, we harness the power of Generative AI not just to simulate but to innovate, ensuring businesses stay ahead in their game, creating value and unparalleled experiences.

Navigating the AI journey requires structured growth. Our AI Maturity Models serve as roadmaps, helping organizations identify their current state and guiding them towards an optimized, mature AI-driven future. By understanding where you stand, we can tailor strategies to elevate your AI prowess, ensuring that its application is strategic, sustainable, and value-driven.


BolgiaTen stands as a trusted advisor in the realm of consultancy, guiding Companies and Governments to harness industry best practices from revered entities like TM Forum’ Frameworx, IET, IEEE, CCITT (ITU), BCS, and more.

Frameworks, while essential, often remain in the realm of generic and conceptual. Their broad-strokes nature, although valuable, lacks tailored nuances for individual organizations.

This is where BolgiaTen steps in.

Our distinct approach focuses on realizing AI-driven, value-centric outcomes. In domains like Social Media, Mobility, AI & Big Data, and Cloud, we shepherd organizations through the potential ambiguities, guiding them from a broad understanding to specific, actionable strategies. BolgiaTen’s commitment to Global Best Practices is unwavering, and our adaptive engagement model ensures a tailored journey for each entity.

Embark with us as we metamorphose the ‘Data Inferno’ into insightful, strategic narratives.
