Datactics Round-Up

This round-up, we are excited to tell you all our developments that have been happening over the past fortnight!

Datactics receives £2m growth investment

The investment was led by Par Equity, an Edinburgh-based investment firm that recently said it had a record year for capital deployed, despite the pandemic. It focuses on early-stage investments.

Sales have grown strongly over the past twelve months and we have now won new clients in Amsterdam, New York, and London. The investment will be used to accelerate growth by allowing us to invest in sales resources focused on London and New York.  

“Our platform allows companies to centralise the controls necessary for data management but, crucially, federate out the fixing of broken data to subject matter experts – the people who know what good looks like”

“It’s clear that in 2021 businesses are stating that data quality has never been more important. We are seeing major investment in data governance worldwide, with firms investing heavily in data management tools for governance. Our core strength in the area of self-service data quality and matching is an essential requirement for many firms wishing to identify broken data and fix it”,  Stuart Harvey, CEO.

UK-Thailand Smart Cities launch!

This week marked the Trade Mission phase of the DIT Tech Export Academy. We were delighted to be meeting virtually with a number of potential clients and partners in Thailand throughout the course of this past week.

The evolution of Thai smart cities brings along a profusion of innovative technology. We had a great week contributing to the wider discussion of how we can use good quality data to inform, nourish and enhance the sustainable cities of the future.

The discussions illustrated the acumen of business professionals in the adaption of new technology and innovation at this time. This appears particularly evident in Thailand where there has been a rapid application of Smart City technology.  

We will have a blog post ready soon, so keep an eye out on our socials for a round-up of it.
