What We Do and How We Can Help
We consult, architect and build.
Whether you are an SME or Enterprise, we act as trusted advisors and deliver cohesive end-to-end solutions for our clients. Our approach is business oriented, context aware, and outcome focused.
Application architecture focuses on architecting and delivering modern, sustainable, and scalable systems. These typically span a variety of architectural styles and approaches including microservices and serverless. We deliver end-to-end value for customers, and ensure the solution can be appropriately managed and maintained by operational staff.
Data engineering plays a critical role in solving contemporary business challenges. Whilst “software is eating the world”, we believe data is shaping the world. Through this practice, we help clients extract benefit and insight from their existing data, by managing, transforming and securing data at scale.
Our expertise in cloud engineering incorporates secure infrastructure design, automation and testable programmable infrastructure. Whether utilising native cloud services, or delivering solutions on top, our clients rely on us to help leverage the right services to innovate, scale and deliver faster.
Engaged with the technology community
Being involved in the tech community is a massive part of our company culture. We are the founders and organisers of several meet up groups, speak and attend conferences and are always keen to share our knowledge, experiences and opinions through our blogs and webinars.
We have active partnerships with the world’s leading technology organisations and aim to be at the forefront when it comes to new technologies and increasing our technical expertise. We do however remain independent and don’t resell, ensuring our advice is always impartial, and in the best interest of our clients.

As traditional operations has embraced the concept of code, it has benefited from ideas already prevalent in developer circles such as testing your programmable infrastructure. This blog provides a concrete example and demonstration of what this looks like in practice. Read more
In simple software releases, and in simple deployments, Continuous Delivery looks like a solved problem. However, many services come with external dependencies and rely on multiple platforms. When these applications need to be deployed across multiple environments, both developers and operators alike may struggle. In this talk I am going to show an easy way to tackle these problems with a familiar tool: Terraform. Terraform is primarily used for infrastructure management. Read more
To identify service boundaries, it is not enough to consider domains only. Other forces like organisational communication structures, and time, strongly suggest that we also should include other criteria in our considerations. This blog documents a list of heuristics for service decomposition. Read more
