Adaptive are the leading Reactive Systems technology consultancy. Our unique skills and experience deliver superlative results, faster than you might expect.

We specialise in financial and trading technology, where real-time performance is the norm, scalability and reactivity are a must, data moves fast and the details matter.

Adaptive have a proven record of delivering solutions within tight deadlines combined with the ability and understanding to communicate with both technology and business teams alike. The financial and trading sectors are evolving rapidly, partly due to increasing regulation, but also because of rising competition. For this reason, selecting the right technology, that can scale, whilst having the flexibility to adapt to new challenges is key: particularly to stand out in such a crowded environment. At Adaptive we help you adapt and succeed, providing you with the right solutions and know-how gained from years of experience.

The technology used in most large organisations has evolved over many years, resulting in a multi-layered technological landscape that combines legacy systems with newer solutions. Working in these mixed environments comes at considerable cost. Hence, Adaptive treats integration as a major part of any delivery project. We can rapidly understand your needs and constraints, and work alongside your teams to deliver solutions that fulfil key operational and design requirements while making the most of your existing systems.
