Reaching the Summit Requires Speed and Agility
The traditional approach to scaling is when venture capitalists and private equity work closely with management teams of the companies they invest in - scaling them financially, commercially, and operationally.
At Northscaler, we want to do more than this, because the rules of business and technology are changing. Northscaler has acquired and integrated SciSpike, a world class, pioneering consultancy team specializing in scaling. This highly senior team provides the technological scalability to grow unhindered while drastically bringing down transactional costs.
We target scale-up companies who have already tasted success. Typically, these businesses have products or solutions that solve important problems in their local markets, but with a global potential.
This is where our contribution makes the difference. Our engineers deliver technological solutions normally matched only by corporations like Facebook, Google and Amazon – on a time frame that radically speeds up your time to market.
Our module-based, open source platform and proprietary Yaktor development tool solves the needs for technological enablement and development. They also increase speed and agility, facilitate continuous delivery, and operationalize digital transformation. And best of all, Northscaler allows companies to access technology and solutions normally only available to cutting-edge large technology companies.
Northscaler Value Proposition
Imagine a highway that would never get congested no matter how many cars are out driving simultaneously. Most of us understand that this is a hypothetical scenario, but it is what we have come to expect in the digital sphere from using Facebook and Google. However, the reality is far too often that spikes in traffic slow speed for users. At the same time, the unit transaction cost for the company delivering the digital services is considerable, and often increases faster than sales.
There are numerous building blocks necessary to execute the strategy of a promising tech company: Customer support, marketing, sales teams, distribution networks, further product development, legal arrangements, talent recruiting. These are all integral parts of the value creation offered by successful venture capital and private equity actors.
At Northscaler, we take a hands-on approach to scale the rising-star companies we work with. Capital is essential whenever a company aims to speed up its growth. We take an equity stake and seek external sources of capital from sources we believe match the vision, mission and culture of the company. And we access the network necessary to suit the mission. Northscaler provides operationalized (?)delivery value chains, and we specify each team to fit the unique purpose and task. We partner up with consultancies and law firms to deliver integrated and tailored commercial and operational scaling. This ensures an integrated omni approach to global launches
Most growing companies will run into scaling problems if they continue to grow using the technological platform upon which they achieved their initial success - cloud or not. Speeds will drop as more customers use the platform, and transaction costs will become a burden as use grows.
Up until recently, technology was available only at a high cost, and only to the highly skilled and schooled. Today, it is everywhere; everyone can be trained to world class skills and established standards and open source conspire to keep the cost low. The challenge today is to comprehend the depth of the technology, map it to the current business case, and finally implement truly scalable solutions before your competitors.
Northscaler’s most unique offering is technological scalability for any company. To this end, we acquired the world’s leading scaling consultancy, and we use it in to make the companies in which we invest ready to take on the world. Our consultants have helped companies - large and small - in most verticals scale their technologies. Now they are ready to help scale-up companies build the technological platform necessary to grow beyond today’s markets.
Much like Lawyers specializing in niches, there is a tremendous initiative to gain value when hiring a consultant in scaling technology. There are clever engineers labelled to produce 7x the output value of average, measured by speed and quality. Our engineers are known in their highly demanding markets to be 100x that of an average comparable architect/developer. This is why Northscaler delivers market leading scaling technology in a time frame that radically speeds up your time to market.
Managing divergent expectations and modus operandi is second-nature to our teams.
Technological scaling is not a challenge exclusive to smaller growth companies. Even medium-sized and large corporations struggle to develop technology that can scale infinitely. New technologies and opportunities require large corporations to change the way they build software, applications and services. At Nortscaler, we help corporates solve technological scaling issues.
New technologies and opportunities require large corporations to change the way they build software, applications and services (Big Data, AI, Web Scale, Event Sourcing, Blockchain, etc.). And while larger companies struggle to innovate, smaller and more innovative companies often struggle to obtain strategic and operational global networks and resources.
At Northscaler, our teams understand and work comfortably with both types of clients. We know and respect different ways of communicating, dissimilar expectations, and divergent modus operandi. We facilitate cooperation to help small and large players achieve common and individual goals.
