Occtoo: The Experience Data Platform

According to Gartner, it predicts that by 2023, 60 per cent of companies seek composability in their tech investments to gain speed and agility. This is where Occtoo comes into play. 

Founded in 2019 by Niclas Mollin, Jimmy Ekbäck and Daniel Brdarski, the startup gives businesses the ability to link all of the data, content, and APIs from all systems in a low-code user interface. According to the company, this helps the digital teams work independently with the data without having to spend the majority of their time and resources on data integration. They can quickly mix context, content, and customer data with the data at their fingertips to provide their custom apps meaning and relevance, orchestrating all digital experiences from a single location.

With its Experience Data Platform, a new digital experience/application can be launched within days and can easily be scaled globally, claims Occtoo. 

- A message from our partner -

Niclas Mollin, CEO at Occtoo, says, “Investing in MACH/Composable systems has traditionally been reserved for tech-savvy organisations. With our Experience Data Platform we make that setup available for more companies, and more teams in the organisation, that also wants to reap the benefits of a composable approach but don’t have a developer-heavy organisation. We remove that complexity and take Composable from a developer heavy approach to a business user first approach. It is something totally new and puts the digital team in the driver’s seat instead of having to lean on the IT organisation to stitch everything together for them.”

Occtoo’s solution has become popular among upper mid-market and enterprise-sized retailers with a need to support their omnichannel sales strategies such as Cartier, Intersport and Nordic Nest. The company is remote-first with 45 team members in 13 countries.
