Empowering world leading enterprises to go cloud native

Our story

Codification's mission is to help some of the world's most successful organisations keep pace with rapid technological change, by modernising their IT legacy and reducing the time to market for digital products.

Codification was founded by industry veteran Richard, who serves as the CEO. Richard teamed up with transformation expert James, who joined the firm as partner and COO in 2019.

Meeting at HSBC after working and consulting in the industry for a combined four decades, the pair had seen the same pitfalls arise time and again; siloed organisational structures, a fear of security and privacy in the cloud, and an absence of in-house technical skills that hamper a technology transformation.


Experts in cloud native operations

Since hiring our first employee three years ago, we have served leading multinationals, top government institutions and software giants - enabling them to transform into cloud native organisations. As testament to the demand for our services, the Codification team has grown to over 50 staff and over 30 associates, and we now offer the skills of expert engineers and technical trainers across the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

Richard is a diligent and methodical powerhouse when it comes to software architecture and driving the roadmap, design and approach to define and put the different phases of the platform creation together. He listened patiently to our requirements, challenged us and came up with a suitable solution to move us forward.
