ABOUT JADE

A bit about JADE's beginnings, the team behind the scenes, and the future we're excited about for JADE.

The JADE Story

JADE Platform is part of the Jade world - Jade Software Corporation operates at a global level, with the goal of enabling technology to solve complex business problems. Alongside JADE Platform, Jade Software is a market leader in AML solutions, offering DevOps, Digital Services, and innovative human-centred design solutions.

For more than 30 years, JADE has been the platform and partner of choice for helping many businesses take care of their technology needs so they can focus on their customers. 

About-Page_Jade-Building_Image-V4

Built for complex, highly regulated industries, JADE's robustness and flexibility have been there from the start, enabling businesses to adapt and respond to evolving needs quickly.

JADE has been on quite the journey itself, initially helping businesses transition from historic mainframe systems to on-prem servers. And more recently, JADE is enabling businesses to adopt the modern practices and architecture, through containerising and re-platforming their applications in the cloud and cloud native development.

Our dedication to innovation is inseparable from our commitment to delivering value for our customers' customers. This has most recently been demonstrated through the capability investment we have made in the JADE team, which is broadening the scope, functionality, and potential of the JADE platform. We couldn't be more excited for the future of JADE and how it can help businesses succeed.

TOUCH
John Richards Development Manager

John has been working with JADE since its release. One of his highlights so far is starting the first JADE Qual Group. John still gets a thrill at how excited people get when they are introduced to JADE for the first time. The one piece of tech John wished was real is teleportation. That could come in handy, don’t you think? Just hope it doesn't run out of batteries.

Hugh McColl Principal Architect

Hugh has worked across the business since 1986. Some of his greatest JADE highlights came between 1992 and 2000 when the team was building great new technology and punching well above its weight. Hugh is passionate about the hidden potential of JADE which is yet to be released. Watch this space. He would also love to get his hands on a Spore Drive too. Trekkies will understand.

Timothy Aitchison Junior Software Engineer

Timothy has been with us for over two years. His biggest highlight so far is designing and implementing the JADE REST Client for the JADE 2020 release. He is really excited about helping clients run their JADE databases in containers and in the cloud. The one piece of tech Timothy wished was real is The Matrix. Who wouldn’t want their own simulated reality?

Hugh Mercer-Beumelburg Junior Support Engineer

Hugh has been with us since early 2020. His biggest highlight so far is developing the JADE Timezone feature, which he designed and implemented himself. Hugh is excited about keeping JADE on the cutting edge side of new tech in the sector. If Hugh could be any character in a series it would be The Doctor. The ability of time travel and changing your identity... need we say more?

Heidi Kong Junior Support Engineer

Heidi has been with us since 2014. One of her best moments was when she realised how lucky she was to join such an experienced, friendly team. Heidi is really excited about the number of new features in the pipeline for JADE. Her most treasured tech possession is her secondhand iPhone 8, as she uses it to talk to her parents who are on the other side of the world.

Commitment to continuity

At Jade, one of our core values is 'Live for the future'. This normally means planning and focusing on our ambitions. But it also means we need to be prepared for any business interruption that is beyond our control. We created the Escrow Society as a business continuity measure to give you full confidence that the JADE platform will continue to function, come what may. With a full backup of the JADE source, the society keeps the future of your business in your hands, protecting your investment in your IT systems. For full information download the brochure below.
