Softwire creates scalable, cloud-native data platforms with exceptional robustness and reliability, underpinned by modern engineering and DevOps practices.

Our Approach

Businesses face
an explosion of data

The data is often spread across countless source systems with variable data quality, which can lead to inefficiencies in business processes, challenges in decision-making, and often a poor experience for customers and end-users.

Bringing together these data sources in a single platform can provide opportunities to transform the way your business operates.

We believe in building
great data platforms

We always start by working closely with you to understand your business, existing data sources and the opportunities where data could have a real impact.

First, this requires a thorough understanding of the domain, and the current data and systems landscape.

Then, we use our extensive experience to propose pragmatic solutions, based on modern, cloud-native tooling.

Previously, we would do studies of around 100 patients, and gathering the data could take up to six months. Now, we can gather data on 10,000 or even 100,000 patients in minutes, meaning the insights we get are much more powerful.

Data Platforms

Make data a first-class part of your IT strategy, not a bolted-on afterthought.

We help you to architect and build data platforms that simplify difficult challenges and provide a foundation to build on in the future. As your data landscape matures, you can grow and develop your data platforms with it, using our experience and expertise to guide you on what’s important to do and when.

By planning for performance, security, and governance from the outset, we avoid hitting difficult roadblocks or costly rework. In addition, we include modern DevOps practices that give you the ability to rapidly respond and evolve to your changing needs.

Data Governance
and Strategy

Create or improve your data governance and strategy to set the tone for the way data is managed across the whole organisation.

Do you have a long-term strategy for managing your data? We support this by taking you through a practical approach, which focuses on the most important consumers of data. The strategy will seek to address the users’ challenges, while fully meeting data protection requirements and addressing any other applicable legislation.

We work closely with your organisation to understand their current level of maturity and map out data flows. By assessing the tooling in use and the wider technology landscape, we can help to rationalise fragmented ecosystems and suggest solutions where gaps exist.

Short-term, we can help to develop practical, people-centred approaches to data governance and new operating models to clarify roles and responsibilities. In the longer-term, we remain engaged to support the cultural changes required to successfully follow our roadmaps.

Data Analytics
and Visualisation

Make high-quality datasets available interactively to help business users to identify insights and make better decisions.

Make the most of your data by using an user-centric approach, which identifies the most valuable use cases of the data and chooses the best-possible tooling to empower users.

We recognise that the needs and technical maturity of data users varies hugely between organisations. As a result, we design solutions that are tailored carefully to your needs. Whether you’re:

  • Implementing interactive dashboards in an analytics or business intelligence (BI) tool,
  • Publishing datasets through an internal metadata catalogue for interactive exploration through analytical notebooks, or even
  • Building bespoke visualisation software to solve specific challenges,

we keep the business need at the forefront of our minds, and focus on helping you to get value from your data.
