Who We Are

Achean is a consultancy based around technology enablement and strong design principles in infrastructure and applications. Based in Gloucester in the UK, we have a history of enabling organisations to achieve significant service improvements and the delivery of new capabilities into business critical functions.

What we do, in a nutshell

The emergence of new technology, especially cloud based services, has changed the way organisations think about IT. We help our clients navigate through the increasingly complicated world of in-house and cloud based applications and data stores to achieve the best outcome and enhance their competitive advantage and bottom line. We do this by closely examining our client’s business and aligning strategy with IT delivery.

You can browse our previous projects and examine our technological focus, but in a nutshell, we are here to help you make the right infrastructure and application choices for your business, whether you’re a new startup looking for a scalable platform to deliver services over the web, or whether you are a multinational looking to consolidate infrastructure or to extract maximum value from your existing databases.
