We want to do something of significance. We want what we spend most of our
waking hours engaged in, that time away from our families, to matter.”
Cindi Meyersohn, Founder of DataRebels
DataRebels is a consulting firm, not a contracting firm.
Our vision is to teach our Data Vault community to fish, not to hand them a fish.
At DataRebels, we believe that the stronger and more knowledgeable we are as practitioners and in our craft, the stronger and more expansive our influence becomes; that the more advanced our techniques, designs, and implementations become, the greater the business value is that we deliver to our customers — trustworthy, auditable, quality answers and solutions. Our founder believes these are shared goals among technical professionals.
Cindi Meyersohn founded DataRebels in 2017 after 34+ years of working in a variety of IT capacities and positions
Her passion is to see the DV2 community grow and succeed because she believes we hold the keys to the kingdom of data warehousing and big data analytic solutions. “We are on the cusp of a paradigm shift in the way in which data warehousing and big data analytics is conceived, perceived, and executed in the United States.”
“For us, success is engaging with our clients as a strategic partner whose sole purpose is to help them and our community find the best technical solutions given the emerging technologies, mixed messages and vendor promises, work environments, constraints, and risks we all face.”
Life Lessons Learned
Having been in both the public and private sectors for so many years, and having worked in Operations and Maintenance as part of an IT organization, Cindi watched the sexy, fun, new technology projects going to contractors. While the internal IT group wanted desperately to have an opportunity to learn new tools and technologies, training was always “too expensive” and they were told it was “cheaper to bring consultants in”, This is an unfortunate, but typical situation.
Contractors, at times, wonder why the internal IT employees resent them, and employers wonder why their internal IT resources are so resistant to the contractors that have been hired to “help them”. In the meantime, corporate management wonders why they can’t retain their technical talent — it’s because the internal staff is just sick and tired of doing the same thing day-in and day-out, ad nauseum, and they know the only way to learn something new is to leave!
Your greatest resources are your employees. Don’t let your corporate or mission knowledge walk out the door. Show them you value them by investing in them through training and education. Give them the tools they need to contribute individually to your success.

Do you need someone to tell you the truth about your Data Warehouse? Do you want your big data analytics project to actually succeed? You need Cindi!
Over the last six years I’ve come to know Cindi as a “Let’s do this” Leader, an adept Architect, and someone you can trust to tell you when your team or project is going astray. It’s not every day you can find someone who is driven to help make your implementation project a success or who has the courage to tell you when it’s not. Cindi has a pragmatic, adaptable style. She’s a solutions architect who has actually lived the work.
