Data Platforms & Analytics

Secure and scalable data services

Unlocking valuable data in your business can provide immediate benefits and impact. Rather than focusing on industry lingo like “big data” which often comes at a big cost, our data services take the approach of starting small with subsets of business data and realistic use cases. Using Infrastructure as Code and DataOps practices, we are able to rapidly establish a platform that provides a catalogue for business users to consume for analytics and intelligence or functionality for applications or APIs. Security and governance processes can be baked right into the catalogues for confidence that you have your business data under control.

From roads to buildings, water pipes and bus shelters, we have been able to connect all of Auckland’s assets digitally for the 1st time. Quite simply, when it comes to Cloud, The Instillery is the best! We have built something quite special, and I know it will provide us with a different way of planning & managing the city, which is really what we want to do, in fact - we need to do.

How we do it

Starting small while thinking big

Taking an Agile MVP approach, our co-pilot model guides your business through the necessary digital transformations and roadmap discovery. Following tangible use cases, experimentation, and testing hypotheses towards a big data vision.

Data Lakes

Using data lake services we can integrate traditional structured and unstructured data sets with other data of business interest. You can even keep your existing database or warehouse in your existing data centre.

Catalogues for consumers

We create virtual data catalogues for different consumers within your business. This could include data scientists, business analysts or dev teams who all need different views of data.

Data in motion

A data platform doesn’t just have to be about analysis of data at rest. Using microservices we can ingest, transform or manipulate data, as well as take actions based upon triggers and workflows.

Data Governance

Rather than having an abstract and manual governance process, we can build controls right into the data platform, building traceability through data flows and configuring granular access policies for internal and external consumption.

Right size, right price

By building on cloud-native managed services as well as serverless architecture, initial costs are kept low, paying only for what you consume. As your needs grow, the platform is in place to scale to massive storage and processing requirements.

What we offer

Solving business problems

Starting with use cases or hypotheses, we are able to work with your business subject matter experts to experiment with different approaches, extract the most value out of your data, and then grow as needed.

Data Platform Builds

Working with the latest cloud data technologies, we architect and build data lakes or data services for you either as a one-off engagement or an agile service. Your existing datasets may sit in a relational database, other business systems or external third parties. We can import, process and provision structured and unstructured data into your platform.

Advanced Analytics

Our certified team brings unique knowledge and experience across distributed data pipelines, automated predictive machine learning, and integration application development to carry out the most ambitious of analytics visions.

Cloud Agnostic

As Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure partners, we are uniquely positioned to help you achieve an outcome regardless of your platform of choice, cherry-picking the best tools for your business.


We work alongside your teams upskilling along the way, enabling you to gain capability and capacity in your own business. We can also provide an ongoing data centre of excellence with a blend of our team and yours.
