Modern dev and data for SME.

Built with you. No lock-in. Flexible systems that can change fast. Our clients are entrepreneurs, most are launching startups or modernizing and growing a family business.

Here's how we can help if...

You're growing but you have to handle it all.

You want to delegate, analyze, optimize, automate, digitize. We can turn your domain knowledge, your complex pricing rules and all those special cases for your product or service into code, so that you can hire help and get them productive quickly.

You're launching a startup.

You want want an MVP that you can eventually take in-house. If you need an economical MVP but it's too early to invest in a team, we can help. We only leverage boilerplate code and an open, modern stack to get going quickly and we don't lock you in. We'll make it easy to take a project in-house.

No good existing option will solve your problem.

We can help if more generic software doesn't fit, or the software for your industry is antiquated/overpriced. There's a lot of software out there, some of it is excellent (use it!), but some of it just isn't quite right. We can partner with you to build the next generation of software for your industry.

A few clients we've worked with, across industries


A family-operated fenestration manufacturer and distributor in Montréal, Canada

PF Concordia W+D Logo

A growing, family-operated fenestration business from Montréal needed to capture deep industry knowledge in code, so the entrepreneur at the helm could delegate technical work and focus on sales. Since Q1 2020, we've been helping with a full digital transformation by building a web application, PWA and other tools to digitize business processes from estimation to fabrication. Existing industry software was too antiquated, too expensive, or inflexible; we're partnering to change that.

We'll be posting a detailed case study shortly.


A fintech startup in Naples, Italy

We built a data acquisition and ETL pipeline for a fintech startup in Italy, building the most data-intensive components of a SaaS for risk assessment in crowdfunding.

A global martech startup with offices in 4 countries

We helped support a DevOps transformation by updating and deploying an ETL pipeline and data augmentation APIs that rely on machine learning.

A small local retailer starting e-commerce

We supported a local fashion retailer by configuring a low-cost storefront with established services and helping them take their business online.

A few things we're building for you already

A web and mobile application for easy manual data collection


We're building an app to help you measure processes and track observations as quickly as possible, whether it's on the road, in the warehouse, on the shop floor, or at your desk.

What we do, a bit more about DataOpera

DataOpera builds software, primarily for the web and for mobile. Our niche is building custom software for entrepreneurs with startups and small businesses. We also have significant capabilities in data science (statistical analysis, "classical" machine learning, deep learning and data visualization).

Throughout their careers, our team has worked on software and data science projects in bioinformatics (cancer genomics), retail, finance, martech/adtech, tourism, construction and manufacturing.

A few key points.

  • We start the project with you; it is unlikely that we will take on existing software projects.
  • Good software requires continuous feedback and constant change. We'll need to learn a lot from you. Expect to set aside a fair amount of time for constant communication with us, especially early on in the project.
  • We usually charge a fixed monthly rate for development. This fee is similar to a retainer and we'll re-evaluate it throughout the lifetime of a project. We just keep working. We expect change, and we'll be there to work with you.
  • Data Opera is legally based in southern Italy, but we're 100% remote (we usually work from home). We've worked with clients in Europe and North America.
  • Site visits are incredibly valuable. We'll travel to you and spend a few days meeting the team, gathering feedback, and learning in the field.
