TPXimpact acquires leading cloud-based open data consultancy Swirrl
TPXimpact is a world-class creative technology group, assembled for innovation. Configured as a lean, fluid and ego-free family of complementary tech-focused companies, they collaborate with brave organisations to ensure their participation in tomorrow, and beyond. TPXimpact floated on the AIM index of the London Stock Exchange in December 2018, creating a group of digitally-native technology services companies assembled to meet the needs of the fourth industrial revolution.
Stirling-based Swirrl, is a cloud-based open data consultancy with a focus on data integration and dissemination in public sector organisations. Through its ‘PublishMyData’ platform, Swirrl works to help government organisations better manage and distribute their data, so that analysts can find, understand and apply data to important problems such as climate change, improved healthcare and challenges facing the economy.
Swirrl’s customers include the Department for Environment, Forestry and Rural Affairs, the Office for National Statistics, the Department for Levelling Up Housing and Communities, Scottish Government and Geonovum, a government agency in the Netherlands advising the Dutch government on its approach to geospatial data.
