Fedr8 Sales Director Richard Beckensall & advisor Derek Ward talk Proactive’s Andrew Scott through Green Rain, the business strategy and current fundraising via technology partners Sentient Capital and Crowdcube.
”Fedr8 came to market in 2008, initially as a consultancy firm, helping technology partners and resellers in the industry understand a bit more about cloud – how it was going to impact their revenue models”, Beckensall says.
”We’ve grown through automation of process and because of that journey we stumbled somewhat across the ability to automate the discovery process for applications”, he adds.
Discussing why Ward chose to get involved with Fedr8, he says: ”I’ve had a privileged opportunity to look at tech around the world .. and those positions lead me to being able to see what UK tech could do”.
”I got involved with UK tech particularly helping organisations I felt had brilliant ideas, really smart people and importantly people running them who’ve got the credentials of having taken businesses and scaled them”.
”In this cloud market place … the people who will win are the people who can accelerate the growth”, Ward says.
Green Rain, which launched back in September 2017, automates application discovery and helps support customers to make fast decisions, at scale and with greater efficiency.
Multichannel Podcast – Brand CEO Alan Green discusses Fedr8 and #GreenRain IT archaeology with Neil Butland of Sentient Capital.
Neil discusses Sentient Capital’s role in identifying high potential growth company investment opportunities for their HNW client base.
Looking at Fedr8, Neil explains how Green Rain works to analyse thousands of legacy applications, and how it saves a huge amount of time and money. He compares a typical coding task: a contractor on daily rate can take 40-50 days to complete analysis and coding requirements for a single app, in comparison to Green Rain, which takes just 24 hours and can run thousands of tasks simultaneously. These factors have resulted in Sentient Capital successfully completing two fundraising rounds for Fedr8 prior to the currentCrowdcube fundraising campaign.
