We develop new technology, frameworks and models to support better use of data.

We are a team of data strategists and technologists supporting organisations in the public and private sectors to embed best practises in data.

Our specialisms are in emerging technologies (such as data trusts and personal data exchange), and linked reference data.

Our mission is to instil best practises in data within government and to make data truly useful for everyone.
