Passionate about technology
We are always on the lookout for new technology or approaches that will deliver real value for our clients. However we combine that with an element of healthy skepticism from years of operating in complex organisations. We know that adopting the latest and greatest trend technology can easily become a hindrance if the broader organisational context and technology landscape hasn’t been considered. So while we love tech, we value real results more. If you’re looking at initiatives in areas such as Cloud, DevOps, Continuous Delivery, NoSQL or Containers, and want to ensure you achieve the business outcomes you want to happen, OpenCredo can help.
Engaged with the technology community
OpenCredo continually strive to be leaders within the domain of software development technology, and we recognise that engaging with the larger IT community is a key part of this. Our consultants regularly blog, present at local events and international conferences, and run public training courses. We also work closely alongside our clients to share learnings from successful joint projects, and have published several white-papers and other publications. OpenCredo are founders of several meetup groups, including the London Mesos UG, the London HashiCorp User Group and Software Circus London.
Delivering value to our clients
OpenCredo work with a range of clients, from large well-established blue chip organisations to small disruptive startups. We help organisations solve complex challenges, whether it is implementing a new high velocity digital platform, modernising a highly complex legacy application environment, designing and deploying the most effective big data solution, or Platform as a Service. Whilst we deliver, we also share our proven way of working with you; leaving you with the most modern, efficient working practices that will benefit your people and business long after we have gone.
“We have definitely gained value from training and support in designing the implementation of our newest use cases that OpenCredo provided", Mark Hollow, CTO at Kaidee said. "We have already started implementing some of the use cases discussed and modelled during the workshop and are hoping to benefit from the gained data insights shortly.”Read the case study
“In this 4 day weekend we take 6% of our annual turnover and have 6x our average peak traffic; OpenCredo worked with us to completely overhaul our infrastructure including a complete migration to a container based solution running on AWS... This could not have gone smoother!”Read the case study
“We are more streamlined and faster – and we catch problems sooner. We can deal with problems immediately, which is crucial as the longer we leave a problem the more costly it becomes to fix.”Read the case study
“We have the ability to produce large data sets very quickly and there are huge retailers in the U.S. who could very well become clients just because of that.”Read the case study
“WooRank reduced its infrastructure from more than 100 servers to 15 servers. This has increased efficiency and resulted in savings of up to 45% on server costs.”Read the case study
“Having OpenCredo’s consultants shadow-working in our office was a very effective way of upskilling our team. It would have been hard to implement these kind of changes if we had tried to achieve this over the phone.”Read the case study
