Salpo wins Go Tech Award for Best use of Big Data

We don’t put ourselves forward for many awards – we’re typically more busy ‘doing’ than telling people about it. But when we heard about the Go:Tech Awards, we saw a category with our name written all over it…at least we hoped so.

Happily, now it’s a reality – we just won the award for ‘Best use of Big Data’ at the 2019 Go:Tech Awards! Our entry focused on a mammoth solution we delivered for our client, Acuris Risk Intelligence. We’re very proud of our accomplishments on this project and felt it was the perfect fit for the award. And here it is, safely back in the Salpo office…

In a nutshell, we built a high-performance big data solution, using advanced AWS components, providing multiple ingestion routes for extremely high volumes of unstructured data (22 billion records to date) enabling complex processing, and generating detailed reports.

The Go:Tech Awards celebrate ‘the UK’s tech pioneers and innovators’, culminating in a presentation evening at The Harbour Hotel, Bristol, last Thursday (21 November). Our CEO, Paul Lawrence accepted our award on behalf of the whole Salpo Technologies team.

This award is fantastic recognition for our developers, project managers and support staff. Thanks so much to the Go:Tech Awards judges for appreciating the hard work and high levels of technical expertise required to deliver this project. Lastly, huge congrats to our fellow award winners and finalists.
