Home Data Singapore big data firm scores NSW govt contract

Singapore big data company Latize has secured its first NSW government customer, the Department of Industry's division of resources and energy.

Latize set up its first overseas office, in NSW, in June.

The DRE started looking for a solution to address data mining for use in mine safety, environmental, licensing, royalties and reporting compliance analysis and other miscellaneous intelligence analysis in August.

At that time, Latize had a presence in Australia for just two months, but believed it could provide a solution for these requirements, given its record with government agencies in Singapore.

"Latize is proud to announce our landmark win in New South Wales," said Vikram Mengi, the company's co-founder and chief executive.

"We look forward to working together to implement our solutions and support the division’s efforts in harnessing data to benefit their operations."

The DRE has said it wants NSW to be "a place where the skills of its people, management of its natural resources and the quality of its government services make it a globally attractive location to live, learn, work, invest and to produce goods and services".

Latize's software approach to big data management, named Ulysses, uses semantic processing and linked data to provide insights that, it claims, would otherwise be unseen in an organisation's data.

The software has been accredited by the InfoComm Media Development Authority in Singapore.

The DRE win was made possible via one of Latize’s local partners, Small Multiples, which has seen customer success in data visualisation.

A media release said Small Multiples and Latize would "work together to implement the Ulysses solution to address initial requirements and look to setting the standard as a platform for further innovative data management projects within the Division".

The initial work will focus on mine safety and at later stages will involve integration with several other systems within DRE.
