Project Services

Project Services

Whether you are embarking on a new implementation or a simple upgrade, undertaking a development project or performance tuning, you might not have the time, right blend of skills, or enough people to help. Our Project Services allow you to select exactly the support and skills you need to create an optimised and reliable production environment so you gain maximum value from your existing technical investment.


You might need in-depth technical development skills, project management resource or expert consultancy. Our consultants will work with you to scope and price the work involved so you know exactly how much the project will cost before it starts. We'll put together a team for you with the skills you need, and once the project is complete, we'll also transfer all the knowledge you need to your in-house team.

Why Project Services ?

If you simply just want our support from time to time rather than continuously, take a look at our Project Services. They offer short-term or project-based consultancy on a time and materials basis in the following areas:

  • Application Development – We offer a range of consultancy and technical skills to assist you at any stage of your project.
  • System Reviews – We offer a range of comprehensive reviews to ensure your platform (e.g. Actian) is fully optimised and able to support your business into the future.
  • Upgrades & Migrations – We perform many Actian upgrades per year which ensures we are best placed to deliver benefits faster. However we don't stop there as we also migrate applications from your existing platform onto new, for example Domino to SharePoint. But we will try and save you money in the process by recommending suitable Open Source alternatives.
  • Application Modernisation – We can maximise on your existing investment by giving your existing Actian application a facelift, mobilise them, web enable them or integrate them with new technologies such as .Net and Java.
  • Business Intelligence – Whether you want to set-up a data warehouse, improve the performance of existing queries, improve data management or require reporting, we have the skills and tools to ensure you have access to your data to support your business decision making process.

Actian has a training department that delivers highly-regarded professional training courses on its products – see the main Education site for further details and course schedules. This experience and understanding is re-used when we create training programmes for the custom solutions we develop. This training is typically process-based rather than functional-based, as experience shows a greater uptake of the system when people understand the Why, What and Value rather than just the How.

The Actian Team members are high calibre IT professionals with a proven track record of delivering high ROI solutions across all industry sectors. Selected for their depth of technical expertise and breadth of real world systems experience, our technical specialists can build and match technology solutions to business problems at both macro and micro level - from architecture definition to concurrent performance tuning.

Our technical specialists are experienced in delivering many types of solutions, to name a few, eCommerce, content/document management, CRM, mobile enablement, workflow, analytics and reporting. With specialisms in Ingres and Vectorwise, OpenROAD, Service Oriented Architectures, .Net, Java, and Linux, whether extending existing systems or creating new ones from scratch, you can be sure that we will deliver.
