To support the surge in connected devices and the Internet of Things (IoT), we develop systems that are capable of ingesting, analysing and exploiting huge quantities of data quickly and effectively.

System design

We help clients navigate complex operational and commercial decisions, balancing on-premise, in-cloud and hybrid trade-offs, to create cloud computing systems that will scale with their customer base.

Our experience in system design delivers improved time to market and the flexibility to cope with evolving demands. 

Best-of-breed technologies

We combine rapid development expertise with complete vendor neutrality, deploying best-of-breed open source technologies.

Together with our award-winning human factors and user experience engineers, we deliver remarkable services and apps for a broad range of markets, from fast-moving consumer environments to the highly-regulated medical industry. 

Migration to the cloud

To remain at the cutting-edge, our clients are increasingly looking to migrate traditional IT resources and in-house software to the cloud, enabling data volume and velocity capacity to flex in near real-time.

Using our device development experience and human factors expertise, we develop complete cloud-hosted products and services that ensure our clients’ infrastructure investments are targeted and transformative.

Cloud stack development

Cloud stack development

This virtualised compute resource – affectionately known as Cloud Cuckoo – is specifically designed to enable rapid systems research and development within a controlled, secure environment. Having the facility to spin up large numbers of virtual machines on-demand is unusual and highly advantageous. With multiple multi-core shelves and nearly a petabyte of fast storage, this resource provides support for all layers of cloud stack development. It’s compatible with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud and other popular platforms.
