Data Management

Combase offers end-to-end data management for projects that are data intensive and require quick, secure set-up and activation.

Combase data management systems can acquire data from a variety of sources including:

  • File Uploads
  • Data feeds (e.g. from sensors in the fields)
  • Data sources (periodic fetching of data from publishing sites)
  • Data Crawls (traversing web sites to capture data)

Data processors and pipelines can be added to transform data automatically and push it out to consumers in a controlled and secure way.

Cloud Advisory

Cloud Advisory

Combase are veterans of cloud. Our first fully on-line application was built before the cloud became a thing. We were into cloud before it was cool.

We loaded that up onto AWS in 2008 and have never looked back. We acknowledge that migrating to the cloud is a complex and daunting task and have been offering our services to help set up secure, automated cloud accounts in Azure and AWS.

We provide advice on:

  • How to migrate services to the cloud
  • How to secure your cloud services
  • How to get the best value for money out of the cloud
  • Which cloud providers are best suited to your needs
Data Processing

Data processing

Sometimes data processing is hard. Sometimes for particular jobs you need to use tools, languages or concepts that are beyond the understanding of your team.
We can help you with that.

Combase is in the process of building a formidable group of data professionals, covering fields from hydrological modelling to actuarial science.

The Combase data team has skills in text handling, natural language processing, geospatial processing and analysis, artificial intelligence and machine learning, Internet of Things, cluster computing, MapReduce and Apache Spark. We are a team that relishes a challenge.
