Start small. Scale with your needs. Only pay for what you use
For organisations and teams ready to embrace modern data management, the Modern Data Platform Launchpad offers a cost-effective and value-driven way to get started quickly – without limiting scalability.
Unlike traditional approaches to data management that require a significant upfront investment, take a long time to implement and limit scalability, the Modern Data Platform Launchpad offers a zero-regrets way to get started. The Launchpad enables teams to generate initial insights and reports quickly, paying only for what is being used. Over time, Launchpad can grow into an enterprise-wide analytics and AI platform – without any rework or redesign.

The insights you need. Fast.
Have you ever needed a simple report but were given lengthy and expensive delivery timeline? Or maybe you identified an opportunity to optimise efficiency, but to get the insights needed to make decisions required a significant investment – and you weren’t sure it was worth it?
If this sounds familiar, the Modern Data Platform Launchpad is for you.
The Launchpad is a data management approach that enables you to access specific insights and reports quickly, without the long and expensive development process usually associated with analytics and data management platforms.
Launchpad can be stood up for an individual team or the whole organisation. It can be your first modern data platform, replace an existing one that isn’t working, or operate alongside your large complex enterprise systems to address specific use cases.
Combining the best of everything into one powerful methodology
The Launchpad leans on the strength of the cloud data platforms and Lakehouse technologies, and ads to it the best elements of Data Vault methodology, Medallion Architecture, Data Mesh and Data Fabrics concepts to deliver a comprehensive data platform that provides solutions not just for the ingestion, integration and curation of data, but also for the security, governance and delivery of data.
It adds to this a library of accelerators to create an architecture that will work across all use cases, now and in the future. Furthermore, the Launchpad approach can help you simultaneously deliver urgent, departmental, subject specific, or time sensitive analytics, as well as enterprise-level reporting.
