The future’s in the cloud.
And we simplify the journey.  


From optimising infrastructure spend, to aligning a cloud strategy with overarching business goals, many businesses are daunted by the complexity of cloud transformation projects. The ecosystem is highly fragmented, characterised by an overwhelming array of vendor options and solutions.

Draining DWQR's legacy

Scotland places a high value on clean water, and the quality of its drinking water is robustly enforced. However, the Drinking Water Quality Regulator's (DWQR) aging Oracle system, built in the mid-2000s, was costly to run, slow, and hindered their ability to identify emerging quality and safety trends.

We swiftly developed a cloud-based solution for DWQR, providing immediate improvements to how the regulator delivers its mandate.
