Architectural Consulting

From the initial idea to the final product, Cognim can help.  We will guide you through the first wireframe designs and user stories, advise on the appropriate platforms and work with your team to implement the solution.

Big Data

What does Big Data mean to you? To us it has come to mean the separation of your data streams to more appropriate systems.  Data warehouses are no longer the de facto ‘one size fits all’ solution that they were in the past. We can help you to analyse and split your data so that it is handled in a much more efficient way.

Testimonials

Cognim was responsible for developing Q-Gen, ABA’s survey software, which has powered around 7 million questionnaires over the last 3 years. Testament to the quality of their work is the fact that brands like M&S, Virgin Atlantic and John Lewis have proudly used Q-Gen for large-scale surveys to their customers.
Alison Bainbridge (MD)ABA Market Research
I have had the pleasure of working with Darren on a number of occasions and his work has always been carried out to-time, to-budget, to-expectation and - most important of all - with the utmost integrity. His commitment throughout project lifecycles has been second to none - even in the face of aggressive timescales and uncertainty - and, when combined with his technical expertise, enthusiasm, and passion, this makes him a rare and extremely commendable character, one I would be honored to work with again.
David Parfitte-skills UK
Cognim have delivered several projects for us and provided expertise for specific technical areas. I have found them to be very knowledgeable and professional. They have been very easy to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Jeremy SageDirector at Stringer & Co (Scales) Ltd
I worked closely with Cognim's Application Architect, Darren, on a few projects. Darren is one of those rare breeds who is able to wear different hats equally well depending on the occasion. From architecting large software systems to low level coding and debugging to interacting with business users and gathering requirements, I found Darren always willing to go the extra mile to ensure best practice and quality of solutions with the end user always in mind. I have no hesitation recommending Darren as a Software Architect / Team lead and I would gladly work with him again.
Chidi OnyemaSenior Developer & Full Stack Engineer
Given a remit to help mentor and shape our team of developers, Cognim managed to organise and guide a previously misfiring team into one that was held in the highest regard by the business at the end of its tenure. Cognim helped to drive through leading edge technologies/practices into the team, and more importantly always balanced the benefit from introducing new ways of working with the business’ needs; ensuring the team became even more efficient and focussed on the quality of code delivery. I would not hesitate to recommend Cognim and look forward to being able to work alongside them in the future.
Martin PrattSenior Project Manager for IT & Business Change Projects
I've worked with Cognim for many years. They are a group of really experienced Developers and have built many tricky, large scale solutions for us. They explain things in a way that is easy for non Developers to understand and are always enthusiastic and positive about finding ways to tackle new challenges whilst always maintaining the highest quality standards.
Natalie GeddesDirector - New Thinking
Cognim is peopled by dedicated and experienced professionals whom I respect immensely and would recommend to anyone. Cognim are always very thorough, pay attention to detail, and work hard to get the job done well, and on time.
Michael Wright (MD)BogusMove Ltd
I have had the privilege of working with Cognim's Application Architect on a number of projects over the last six years. His technical knowledge and experience have meant that every single project has been a success. The ability to meet client expectations and deliver on time and to budget means Cognim is a great asset to any web project.
