Energy Management System Design
Systems design of a real-time Energy Management System solution for Verbund, Austria's largest electricity provider, capable of processing energy data from 300k+ devices.
We were tasked with producing a set of specification documents for Verbund's upcoming Energy Management System. We worked together with Verbund's team, kicking off the project with a wonderful visit to Verbund's offices in Vienna, and delivered a specification precisely tailored to their goals and requirements. Our systems design effort included architectural, logical and physical design (I/O, storage, processing, HA and data).

Driver Behavior Analysis
Real-time analytics on data streaming from on-vehicle sensors, enriched with road and weather data, engineered to scale to 200K+ vehicles.
Our work was central in engineering the system: from structuring the project so it could scale, to storing huge amounts of raw data; from implementing the streaming analysis pipeline, to dealing with data provider peculiarities; from monitoring app performance, to serving the resulting high-value business information to managers and users. We were responsible for backend development and some of the frontend development.

Geospatial, Temporal, and Curated Data
ISeeChange is a social media platform dedicated to empowering communities to observe how weather and climate affect their environment, connecting the public with national media, government bodies and scientists.
We were called in to help, when collaborating with NASA brought in the need to integrate earth-observation datasets originating from the OCO2 satellite. Since then, we’ve advised the team on technology-related strategy and data modelling, in order to transition towards sensor-data collection, take full advantage of the geospatial and temporal aspects of their datasets, transition towards supporting a GeoJSON and GIS-friendly API, and add NLP capacities to their core offering. We’ve refactored the backend, swapping from a MongoDB data store to using PostgreSQL and PostGIS.

Multi-site Publishing Platform
Centralized content management for a network of interconnected publications in the world of sport publishing.
From multiple UX revisions to tweaking the finest details of the custom-tailored Wordpress theme, we've put the client at the centre of our development process and used agile methodologies to deliver a platform that perfectly matched their content management requirements.
We maximise the quality of our products by selecting the tools and workflows that best fit each different project.
Node.js' event-driven model is a perfect fit for reactive systems dealing with streams of events from a variety of devices. Its small footprint is ideal for building micro-service architectures that can easily scale both on-premise or on the cloud. Moreover, Node.js' incredible community and its ecosystem of packages promote code reuse and fast development cycles.
We selected React as our favourite frontend library because of its flexible and component-based approach. React is a easy-to-abstract tool that let developers focus more on the architecture of the application than on the library itself.
Angular is a TypeScript-based all-in-one framework for building large web platforms. Created and maintained by Google.
We chose Angular framework for enterprise projects for its strong-typed, java-like approach that let us to build robust and large web platforms. Angular nature really fit enterprise projects that should be maintained over time and teams.
MongoDB is a no-sql database storing data as JSON-like documents with ad-hoc indexing and data aggregation capabilities.
MongoDB is a schemaless database that can store unstructured and heterogeneous data by design. It is able to perform data analysis and aggregation upon query, allowing the developer to get insights and valuable statistics with minimal effort. Where high-availability and data redundancy are a must, such as in enterprise contexts, MongoDB can be deployed as a distributed cluster.
PostgreSQL is a powerful, highly scalable, enterprise-class object-relational database with more than 15 years of active development.
PostgreSQL's advanced features, from GiST indexing to JSON, coupled with its strong emphasis on performance, stability and data integrity contribute to making it the premier open source database for both small and large scale projects.
Timescale builds upon PostgreSQL to bridge the gap between relational and time series databases.
Timescale adds transparent time-space partitioning and time-space query optimization to PostgreSQL, bringing the power of the relational model to scale. Timescale is our database of choice for IoT, metrics monitoring, DevOps monitoring and financial data.
Linked Data is the key element to enable a host of new services that will transform everyday lives.
Linked Data is a set of web standards that allow machines to process information independently of humans. Linked Data is a foundational element of the Semantic Web, an emerging platform for a privacy-first, decentralized, open and machine-friendly web. We embrace Linked Data because it facilitates data integration across heterogeneous sources, bringing additional value to our customers while paving the way for a better web.
Docker is a low-overhead container solution that automates the repetitive tasks of setting up and configuring software environments.
We use Docker to simplify the management of both our development and production environments. It allows us to run our code within identical guest environments across all phases of our projects and to easily scale our applications while maintaining a safe degree of isolation in shared contexts.
We all share a deep interest for technology and the challenges that come with it. Through our complementary sets of skills we are able to effectively and efficiently help our clients in a broad range of contexts.
