Data's best friends

We deal with Data at any scales
Distributed computing is our hammer
You tell what, we known and teach how

Our Focus

Taking data to next level.
Consulting

We're applying our expertize in many projects involving cutting-edge technologies, or not. Our deep understanding of actual frameworks and programming languages helps our clients to speed up and strengthen their data oriented projects.

Scala training

We were the first in Belgium to believe enough in Scala, and it's functional features, to become one of their Partners. And we're proud of that. Our first training was given in March 2014, others will follow.

Big Data workshop

We know that this word is to buzz but we also think that Big Data is way more than a buzz word. That's why we propose several kind of internal workshops about Big Data, covering from the Business opportunities to the IT details, through the Analysis methods.

Distributed computing

Distributed computing is the new age we have, as technical people, just entered. Whatever the business changed or not, the needs for distributed computing is becoming more and more a pressure for the IT departments. Luckily for them we're there around!

About US

We create and setup highly scalable and resilient solutions even for small & medium level businesses.
We're experts in distributed computing and data analysis.

We're not involved in the most appealing projects in Belgium and abroad for nothing.

Our expertize and engagement in emergent technologies is highly appreciated by the stakeholders of our projects.

There are number of examples and we cannot cite them all, but the first one can only be the Scala programming language which we supported even before it was new language to learn on the JVM.

But also, the Play! Framework 2, one of the most popular web framework in the JVM world today. We used it before it was even released!

We must note that we are using the new Big Data's kid on the block for years now, naming the Apache Spark project. We had the pleasure to use it for projects in the Internet of Things, GIS (road network analysis) and Genomics.

  • Data Analysis

    We're holding a strong background in Mathematics, Physics and statistical modeling.
    We're excelling in data visualization and inference towards prescriptive analytics.

  • Distributed Computing

    Our experience taught us that a single machine will fail.
    That's why we always think distributed first, being for an infrastructure or an algorithm.

  • Training

    We're certified in different emergent technologies like Scala. We're also expert in cutting edge ones like Spark.
    And we love to share those!

  • Leadership

    Social and organized, our leadership experience in data teams or dev teams is largely recognized and appreciated.
    Because we're committed in the projects we take over.
