what we do
changing the world: step by step, but rapidly
making new technologies useful
pumpco is all about making innovative technology useful. We constantly scan the horizon for innovative technologies, sifting true innovations from the gimmicks, and determining how these can usefully be applied to real world problems.
pumpco labs are where new technologies of all kinds are brought on to the bench for detailed evaluation and prototyping.
The tech that passes our tests is incorporated into or connected up to the pumpco platform, such that it can be employed in our collaborations to bring real benefits to citizens, their personal networks and all who work with them, whatever their professional or sector affiliation.
who we are
expertise and experience
Each member of our team brings particular areas of both technology expertise:
- user experience design
- big data processing
- real-time mission critical communications
- large-scale hardware and software interoperability
- embedded systems
- enterprise architecture
as well as industry experience, both in public sector:
- social services
- intelligence and defence
and private sector:
- enterprise software
- semiconductor manufacturing
- financial services
- data retention
All our our team have supported practical standards development efforts over the years, especially in the worlds of interoperability and terminology.
Past roles have included setting up and running the IHTSDO, the not-for-profit international standards organisation, which owns, administers and develops the SNOMED CT clinical terminology standard and setting up and running the NHS national communications and messaging team, responsible for adoption and enhancement of HL7 healthcare interoperability standards, international advisor to board of HL7 US and head of standards development and implementation for the NHS Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions, Choose and Book, smart card security and single sign-on projects.
Today our team are developing standards to make it possible for developers of all levels of experience to develop components, which can interact with each other without having to know of each others existence and leverage a rich platform of integrated services, to enable developers with great ideas to quickly get these implemented and into the hands of those who can best make use of them.
