Our Story


Liberbyte is addressing the growing and varied need of organisations to be able to manage their data effectively. Private and public organisations increasingly face the challenge of identifying, accessing and sharing business domain specific data in and outside of their boundaries.

Liberbyte's business model, platform and domain specific solutions are focussing on to facilitate, narrow and close the below SUPPLY and DEMAND gap:

Drivers for Data SUPPLY

  • Exponential Growth in data volumes driven by ongoing digitalisation of many industries and growth in IoT/sensors/robots/bots
  • Expansion of digital platform businesses / economies
  • Increasing connectivity leveraging API, communication and distributed systems and resulting network effects
  • Increasing use algorithms, Machine Learning and Analytics creating further data
  • Need to be able to isolate data supplies (and or demand) down to single data point and/or attribute
  • Ability to govern the data supply by an organisation (for business benefits / creating value out of data)

Drivers for Data DEMAND

  • Need for business / research domain specific data across organisational borders and sources
  • Need to find specific data beyond search engine reach (e.g. in company internal networks) and / or in right format and quality
  • Need to create new bespoke data (by user or sensors) and create Information Architectures (Metadata / Ontologies) to support ML
  • Need to be able to isolate data demands (and or supply) down to single data point and/or attribute
  • Ability to govern data demand by an organisation (for business benefits / creating value out of data)
