2018 in Review


The Zizo technology platform has come on leaps and bounds over the last 12 months, with new support added into our Pathway solution for data types such as XML and ASCII encoded binary to support some amazing analysis – more on that later. Our Zizo data platform now has extensions and support for advanced capabilities such as AI & Machine Learning, with our Data Landscaping capability making waves, alongside new developments in natural language processing. Finally, our Insight platform now delivers truly self-service BI, and is fully database agnostic. Drop us a line if you would like to know more.


2018 was another award wining year for Zizo, with a win at the TMT Awards for best ‘Analytical Data Management Solution’, another at the National Technology Awards for Cloud Product of the Year and finally, a highly commended at the Computing Big Data Awards for ‘Outstanding Data and Analytics Solution – Parcelforce’.  We can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!

Clients and Projects

It has been an exciting year for us, and we have been lucky to have worked on some fascinating projects, which really highlight some innovative uses for data and the Zizo data platform.  The biggest data set comes from shipping ‘AIS’ data at over 360 billion rows of data, and we are proud to say we were able to understand and predict some amazing insights, such as ship tracking and illegal activity. We were also fortunate to build a new analytics website for Experian, and we continue to deliver five nines support to our customers on our managed service platform.


Once again, we need to give thanks to Intel for their continued support, we eagerly await the launch of the latest Xeon processor range, and we can’t wait to is Optane DC Persistent Memory in the real world. This year’s Cloud event in Geneva was fantastic!

We would also like to thank Lenovo, and welcome SuperMicro to the Zizo party.

We are also proud to be a Snowflake partner; where the on-premise & private cloud analytics of Zizo combine with the ultimate scale data warehouse designed for the cloud – giving us a truly hybrid analysis capability!

The Edge

In 2019, we will be bringing Zizo into the realms of Industrial Internet of Things and Edge computing.  Alongside the amazing performance of the Zizo platform (we can query over 500m rows of data on an Edge gateway that cost less than £300) our technology fits in well with a hybrid model of cloud and micro-data centre.  Watch this space for more exciting announcements over the course of 2019!

Zizo signing off now – look for the new website coming soon!
