Getting the solution right

Our growing digital architecture practice combines expertise in enterprise, solution and technical architecture. Our architects work collaboratively to create solutions in the context of our clients’ existing technology estates. We advise on the components required to deliver a new service successfully in line with business goals.


Tools and practices

We start by building a rich understanding of your business requirements, ensuring that any solution is fit for purpose within your wider technology context. Our architects then get hands on with implementation – drawing on their domain specialisms, they work with your teams to reach the right solution.

A sudden growth in demand for our online services required a rapid scale-up and a restructure of our architecture. Opencast was absolutely key to our success in managing that, with no unplanned downtime

Murray Ellender, chief executive


Thanks and congratulations to the team for all the hard work they’ve put in...they should be so proud of themselves to deliver with such challenging timelines. It’s a turbulent time for all so to keep on track is a real achievement

Opencast employees were very much part of the integrated and blended team that helped us… it was a real team effort…what’s really remarkable was that the solution was delivered in three weeks

The resilience, commitment and confidence of everyone has been incomparable. Everyone, across both the wider business and within technology involved in all elements of both the build and delivery of these projects and products have worked exceptionally hard in extraordinary times

Insure the box

I love working at Opencast. The culture is amazing and the recognition the company gives for my work makes me want to push harder for our clients. I feel like I am directly responsible for the success of the company in my own way, which is nice!

The company handbook, Don’t Step Over the Milk, summed it up for me. It was a great insight into the way the company thinks and operates. It trusts you to do the job, it expects you to work hard and wants you to have fun.

Opencast team member

The culture is relaxed and laid back, but everyone works hard. Everyone is smart, intelligent, but also friendly and approachable. There’s no hierarchy here, and I feel I can take ideas and suggestions to anyone, whereas in my previous job this was often more difficult.

Opencast team member

I love the fact that personal development is important here.

When you land somewhere like this, the passion that other people have for what they do is so infectious that it can only help you positively.

Opencast team member

We’re a relatively small company, although we do some vital work for important clients. But we’re also a great company to work for, you very much feel part of the family.

Opencast team member

My favourite thing about working for Opencast is the freedom, and that Opencast encourages me to educate myself and spend money on my learning.

Response to the new service has been positive … we’re already getting good feedback from users on how to apply their learning in the workplace

Opencast’s input into the development of the new platform helped PPT to pass its public beta assessment at the first attempt in November 2022. In June 2023, the PPT team passed its GDS assessment to take the service live

The partnership with Opencast will strengthen our user experience and digital offering for our members and users for years to come

Opencast has been a key part of our journey as we've grown and scaled the business. We have some of the Opencast team with us again now, and it’s working really well.

Insights from users form the foundation for delivering the right solutions. These are also critical to the delivery of truly patient-centred care. Across all phases of a project, it’s essential to embed an agile, user-centred and service design mindset. So, we’ve set out seven core principles that we see as essential to deliver successful patient-centred care.
