Computer Applications Designed and Built
There are ever greater quantities of information to be collected - daily, hourly, by the minute, every second...
Gathering data begs questions. WHAT will you do with it, and HOW will you do it?
There are many disparate varieties of information, often related to money. Each domain has domain experts who
have the knowledge required to make intelligent decisions in their field. We program intelligent decisions.
- At Graeme Robertson Limited we create reliable computer systems for all sorts of businesses.
- We welcome big and small multi-dimensional data, and data connected through complex mathematical relationships.
- We build fine GUI front ends that achieve the business aspirations in accordance with user instincts.
- Our solutions are created with the knowledge and advice of domain experts who supply the relevant information.
- We do our little bit of magic by standing on the shoulders of giants...
USING A BRILLIANT COMPUTER LANGUAGE
"I have learnt more than I thought possible with just 4 days of
training," wrote one bright actuarial student.

That's the HOW; now the WHO and WHAT.
There is no point gathering volumes of data, numeric or linguistic, unless you intend to use it for something. You would be surprised to discover how many very
large companies have used and still use APL for strategic applications. You can see more details of WHAT some of them have used it for under
||The Statistical Services Unit, based in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at Sheffield University, has found our services of value in some of their consulting projects.
They requested a number of corrections, speed-ups and improvements to an existing system, including: addition of prior estimates for outlier zones from variance learning in reports and on screen,
an option to store exact mean values if they exist, an option not to colour equations in order to speed up certain reports, a new Find/Replace menu item, flags to label certain
equations as syntactically incorrect, inclusion of certain calculated variables in the audit file, the ability to delete base quantities from a model, an option to output reports
directly into Excel via OLE, and an installation executable to install the sofware automatically on users' equipment. Exact calculations were enhanced to allow exponentials of base and derived
quantities when no variance is requested, and many other smaller improvements were effected. |
||Network Rail requested new features to be added to an existing complex asset management application which they employed for infrastructure maintenance and costing.|
||We assisted this Danish company by extending their large asset management product, SimCorp Dimension, in a variety of technical ways. |
||Pension systems were developed and enhanced over a number of years for three departments of this top-tier UK insurance company.|
||The Risk Initiative and Statistical Consultancy Unit, attached to Warwick University, found our services of value in some of their consulting projects.|
||Transport for London requested changes to the variance learning module of a statistical inference application.|
||An Aviva pension system was modified and enhanced with an extensive variety of new features and new legal requirements over a number of years.|
||Supported Admin Re in their critical fault-averse use and continuous improvement of an Aviva pension system developed by the team at Optima Systems.|
||Assisted Mouchel Rail in developing a civil engineering strategic cost modelling tool for analysing Network Rail infrastructure.|
||Supported Sinclair Knight Mrez in their adoption of the Mouchel Rail strategic cost modelling tool.|
Projects for all these companies were carried out efficiently and with care by Graeme Robertson Ltd (2004 - 2017).
