Data, Databases and Analytics
SGP have years of experience in designing, architecting, deploying, optimising and scaling complex enterprise databases. Having been a key supplier on the initial digital smart meter project with both the Department for Energy and Siemens, we have experience of “big data” long before it was an overused marketing term. We have handled petabyte storage deployments of clustered SQL and Oracle installations and provided near real-time analytics for an energy system recording 34,000,000 data points per day with an initial 3 year backlog of data to import, cleanse and store.
If your startup has a complex data, database or data analytics project, we’d love to be involved and ensure that it results in measurable value to your shareholders.
We have worked with early stage business on prototype and full production builds of mobile applications using:
Native iOS (Objective C and Swift)
Native Android (Java)
Xamarin hybrid C# .Net
Cordova / PhoneGap
We have experience of all types of mobile apps, and the critical supporting backend and web services, and have produced apps in the past 12 months including:
A real-time messaging and social media aggregation app
Motorcycle crash detection and route recording app
Payroll and contractor management solution
Distance learning training and assessment app
Workflow based solutions for remote workers
Complex insurance aggregation and broking platform (FCA regulated)
We are not a design studio, and work with a limited number of specialist partners for the production of high quality visual designs. We believe in being deep specialists and partnering with leading design professionals to derisk a project and increase overall quality.
Increasingly, investors are seeing the advantage of engaging in rapid prototyping (Digital by Default discovery and alpha) projects to decrease uncertainty and increase the surety of requirements and specification prior to committing to expensive and long duration software projects.
At SGP we have been encouraging this approach for a number of years and have a broad experience of facilitating minimal viable product (MVP) developments as part of an ongoing requirements refinement process prior to engaging in major software development projects.
