Datactics invests over £2m with plans to grow exports and create 18 jobs

Congratulations to our portfolio company, Datactics, and its CEO, Stuart Harvey, on its plans to invest £2.3m into its business through R&D, skills development and the creation of 18 jobs. Keep up the good work!

Once all are in place, the 18 roles will contribute over £700,000 of additional annual salaries to our local economy.

“Invest Northern Ireland’s ongoing support has been fundamental in helping us get to where we are today. The R&D project will use ML to develop new analytics functionalities for our Datactics Data Quality platform. Invest NI’s in-market teams have given us great advice on how to expand in GB and the US, and to enter new markets like Japan and Singapore. By creating 18 jobs, investing in technical, digital and sales skills, and with our new Data Academy for graduates, we will be able to expand our team’s capacity and expertise to secure new sales in these markets.”
