Aptitude Software value beyond compliance

Rapid software development in an enterprise application platform.

The Aptitude platform empowers leading enterprises to rapidly build data-driven software systems.

The Aptitude platform empowers enterprises to deploy big data processing technologies to drive their businesses forward.

The Aptitude platform has long been used by enterprise teams to efficiently build business-critical software systems and to drive their businesses forward.

Our customers operate in many different industries and include:

  • One of the world’s biggest credit card providers uses the Aptitude platform to streamline the control and subledger processing of hundreds of millions of daily transactions, integrating data silos, providing consistent enriched accounting into a new system that provides more powerful customer profitability analysis.
  • A leading digital media company deployed the Aptitude platform to build a royalty calculation engine that reconciles the numerous revenue streams flowing from millions of digital sales to ensure record companies, artists and other intermediaries’ royalties are properly accounted for and paid promptly.
  • A prominent Northern European bank uses the Aptitude platform to integrate data from across divisions (mortgages, retail banking, loans, etc), perform detailed calculations and forecasts to rapidly deliver rich reporting to a broad range of stakeholders.

Aptitude platform v5.0 helps enterprise leaders make a better business case for big data.

Application Platform for Finance

Innovative companies understand that being truly data-driven is no longer optional. Those that can access big data technologies can reduce costs, make better strategic decisions and – ultimately – gain true competitive advantage. But, getting value from technologies such as Apache Hadoop in conjunction with other technologies has been the preserve of a handful of modern-day data alchemists.

Aptitude platform version 5.0 provides in-memory, in-database and in-Hadoop processing removing the barriers to apply big data technologies in operational business systems across the existing and new enterprise.

Aptitude Software has partnered with leading technology vendors including Teradata, IBM, Cloudera, Oracle, and SAP in order to ensure Aptitude-built business applications can integrate data from and leverage the processing power of these systems in one seamless enterprise application environment.


The Aptitude platform acts a bridge between your existing infrastructure and powerful new big data-processing technologies.
