Solutions & services for European software innovators

Building great software is hard. We provide best-in-class solutions & services that help European companies deliver the best possible software systems.

Why we exist

Our hearts beat for systems where performance & reliability matters — systems that ARE effectively „the business“.

Software innovators are continuously confronted with high expectations on the systems they build

We’re experts in designing, implementing and operating such systems in a smooth, predictable and reliable way.

Innovators can stay focussed on their mission-critical core processes, while we support them whereever needed.

We can be generalists OR specialists – whatever YOU need!

We cover a wide range of service that all are focused on a single goal: to let your digital business shine. We’re happy to provide the full range of services, and are likewise happy to provide point-support for a single focus topic.

Our categories of services:

CTO-as-a-Service

Strategic orientation & advice at the intersection of technology & digital business.

Strategic orientation & advice

We help you finding the right answers to all important questions around technology & digital business strategy - and how one depends on and interacts with the other.

PE-as-a-Service

Platform Engineering for infrastructures and general-purpose platform elements.

Platform Engineering

Cloud native infrastructures, platform components (esp. Container orchestration & Event Streaming), as well as related processes and tooling (esp. DevOps & MLOps).

DEV-as-a-Service

Typical business scenarios that make people talk to us

Software innovation manifests itself in different flavors. Whether you’re a mid-size company or a larger-scale Enterprise (or even a StartUp) — if one of the typical business scenarios resonates with you, we’d love to hear from you:

You want to modernize your data infrastructure towards a scalable, real-time data platform (but don’t know where to start)

You want to automate existing business processes with cognitive services to lower process cost and throughput times in one go

You want to implement real-time business monitoring for mission-critical processes

You want to reduce hyperscaler cost by moving workloads to more cost-efficient runtime environments

You look for a new partner to operate your existing business systems in a reliable but cost efficient way

You think of building a new customer-facing business application and look for a reliable partner for low-risk implementation

You’re in a post-merger situation and look for a fast but powerful system- & data-integration approach

Our mission-critical KPI for success: YOUR business value

In order to deliver on our value proposition, our setup is tailored to provide maximum value for money, at all times:

One the one hand, we’re big enough to…

At the same time, we’re small enough to…

Plus: we operate on a strong set of traditional but timeless values

Creating digital business value through key technologies

From a technological viewpoint, our sweet spot is the intersection of Event-driven architecture (EDA), container technology and DevOps / MLOps practices, all aligned to one goal: to let your software-based business shine.

Cloud-based infrastrutures

IaaS & PaaS from all major public cloud providers (Azure, AWS, GCP) as well as EU-based and OnPremise scenarios.

Container technology

All things Kubernetes including storage, custom resources and more advanced technologies.

Event streaming technology

All things Kafka and event-centric solutions, including Kafka Connect, ksqlDB, Apache Pinot and Apache Superset for real-time analytics.

All things Microservices

Containerized, scalable services including aspects of performance-management, security and operational robustness.

DevOps toolchains

All market typical tools ranging from code repos, CI, CD, container registries for maximum speed, automation and SW supply chain integrity.

MLOps toolchains

Advanced tooling for embedding AI / ML components into microservices, epsecially for cognitive automation of business processes.

Fast, reliable and with enterprise-grade security and robustness.

Featured solution: INFINITY PaaS

100% EU-governed / 100% Open Source / 100% focus on developer experience

Hazzle-free Managed Service runtime environments for high-performance, business-critical software systems

Some solutions we recently had the pleasure to design, implement & operate

Streaming ETL for real-time system integration

A solution that uses Kafka, Apicurio schema registry, Kafka Connect and ksqlDB to provide a real-time data integration between an event source and a corporate DataWareHouse.

Business process automation with cognitive services

We have trained a custom Open Source machine learning model (text classifier) and embedded the model into an event-driven microservice to have an autonomous business process.

Event Mesh / MLOps bridge for continuous ML data pipelines

Event-based data is being used to automatically train and (re)deploy a ML model. Focus on fully automated MLOps and DevOps processes.

Running Kubernetes in a regulated OnPrem environment

We are setting up a local OnPremise K8s cluster for a client from the Financial Services industry in a fully air-gapped environment and local system integrations.

AI-powered marketing lead generation & sales automation

A fully event-driven system that automates the search, contact request and initial communication with designated clients on a social media platform. Uses NLP and NLG technology.

Operations-as-a-Service

Free up internal DevOps capacity!

Internal DevOps capacity is scarce and precious. Yet a significant proportion is used for activities that are not related with the business logic of individual applications: namely, the maintenance and operational management of cross-sectional and platform components.

You can free up capacity by having us look after such components, so that internal people have to spend less time for „Ops“, and more for „Dev“.

Let us show you how!
