it’s all about adapting faster


Your software systems need to evolve as fast as your business needs them to in order to stay ahead of the competition. This need is only increasing.The challenge is that our software is getting bigger and more complex. In order to keep things evolving quickly a different approach is needed: this approach is commonly called microservices.The microservices approach allows you to break up a software system into a set of separately evolving services that embrace change, rather than resist it. We apply a 3 stranded process to Microservice development.

Prepare the Ground – The How of Microservices

In this strand, you will establish sufficient technical capability to build Microservices. This covers Deployment, Monitoring, Service Discovery, API Management and Continuous Delivery. Once this is done, you have the ability to create and manage Microservices.


Understanding Change – The Why of Microservices

You may be able to build Microservices, but are they actually helping you?

Given that change and speed of software evolution is so critical, why is it that so much software becomes a millstone around yourself and your team’s next, leading to you dreading the next inevitable change that’s needed? For over 10 years, we have strived to work in a more agile and adaptable fashion

It’s now time to make software that can continually change.  In this strand we will teach you how to understand change and harness it to build software that generates continuous value for you.


Develop at Sustained Speed – The Who of Microservices

As the saying goes with great power comes great responsibility. For Microservices to work most effectively, they must be implemented by your development, operations and the business working together. This is known as devops, or bizdevops and supports Microservices with a cultural transformation to enable rapid delivery of value.


Building Microservices

We provide tools, training and consultancy to help you understand change and give you success in starting your Microservices project.


Mastering Microservices

Setting up sustained innovation can be hard. We can help you choose and apply technologies, design and development techniques to fully master Microservices.

We can bootstrap, guide and accelerate your Microservices project

Our Team;
Your Community

We are a consultancy and project delivery company head-quartered in the UK and operating primarily in Europe, the Middle East and North America. We specialise in architecting, designing and building software that handles change. This leads us to our expertise in Microservices, which we pair with our Data Science practice and feeds our especially effective Learning and training solutions.

We deliver large scale data and event focused applications, often using Microservices. We have researched and developed innovative methods and techniques in both data oriented and Microservice architectures. We take this experience and research and have built training, consultancy and work based learning systems for our clients to access outside of our delivery projects. Check Our Services for more information on what we do.

Learning Innovation

Tell me and I’ll forget
show me and I may remember
involve me and I’ll understand

The process of learning is not as simple as often assumed. 3 days and a fat slide deck aren’t enough to embed knowledge so that it will be retained for the long term.  While this format is suitable for a project bootstrap, if you want to ensure your organisation is sustainably improving, a more holistic process of learning is needed.

We have invested heavily into researching the most effective method of learning. By identifying best practices from across the worlds of academia, technology and other industry sectors, we construct courses and extended learning engagements that give greater retention of information and so give an improved return on investment.

We call this process Adaptive Learning, and we can demonstrate to you how it can improve your return on investment.

While all of our training and learning services contain this investment, we have specific products that leverage this capability in particular industry sectors and using particular technologies.


Introduction – Adaptive 

Graduate Schemes

Learning during a Graduate Scheme is fairly extended, needs a broader range of subjects and above all must be deeply embedded with the work the Graduates are intended to move onto.
We provide services that permit monitoring of individuals, assessing their needs and providing training, mentoring and interactive feedback loops over months to give the highest quality, deep learning needed to give highly effective, motivated employees.
We can help you create or improve a Graduate Scheme in areas of technology, development process and personal development and we are happy to blend internal expertise into the monitoring and feedback framework we construct and run for you.
