Our technology practice brings deep technical expertise to your business initiatives, to enable change that produces real business benefits.
Our technologists bring decades of experience in data and enterprise architecture, software development, systems integration, open source, IT strategy and technical programme delivery. They have worked at technology and systems integration companies such as Logica and technology practices of consultancies such as Andersen and Deloitte.
Big Data expertise
We have world-class Hadoop expertise in-house. Our certified Apache Hadoop trainers have provided training to companies like Accenture, Adobe, Cisco, Goldman Sachs, Infosys, Morgan Stanley, Redhat, Wipro, and Yahoo!, just to name a few. Our trainers are ‘doers first’—they are Big Data strategists, architects, developers and administrators.
Onepoint IQ Labs
The Big Data space evolves at breakneck speed. We continue to develop practical experience with the ever-evolving ecosystem so that we can quickly define a tailored solution that is ‘right’ for our clients. Onepoint IQ Labs, our research and development division within the Technology practice, continually experiments with the latest releases and new entrants.
Our hands-on experience through client assignments and the Onepoint IQ labs include batch (Hadoop) and real-time (e.g. NoSQL) data management platforms from leading vendors including Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR, DataStax Cassandra and associated tools (e.g. Flume, Hive, Impala, Oozie, Spark, Sqoop, Talend); search technologies (e.g. ElasticSearch, Solr); analytics technologies (e.g. Hive, Pig, Mahout, Python, R, Shark); and visualisation technologies (e.g. D3, Jaspersoft. Pentaho, Tableau).
We have an ecosystem of strong and growing network of partners and associates whom we work closely with to extend our capabilities and scalability. We collaborate with our extensive network of data scientists, visualisation experts and sector specialists to bring the right mix of know-how appropriate to your organisation. We work with your existing partners and advisors collaboratively and with successful outcomes in mind.
Our independence means that we recommend solution options that are optimal for your business and business case. Our partnerships are a starting point and are useful when quickly applying know-how and working practices. We are transparent with our clients and offer ‘whole market’ technical comparisons and vendor sourcing where this is appropriate or requested.
Given our decades-long experience and provenance in the technology space, we apply technologies ‘outside’ the Big Data space—such as cloud, mobile, social, and digital—to define the optimal solution for our clients, not just a fragmented data only solution. For example, most clients typically ask us to use secure cloud technologies to quickly develop ‘proof-of-concepts’ without burdening their IT team or systems. Some clients go onto adopting ‘production’ solutions that are fully cloud-based and managed by our Products & Services practice.
