Winners Of

  • 2020 Innovation

The entire team at Ninth Wave – a City of London based software and services provider – is delighted to receive a 2020 Queen’s Award for Enterprise (Innovation) recognising its revolutionary portfolio and project management software solution, SmartCore.
SmartCore is a cloud-based application generator that can manage major programmes and portfolios of projects quickly and efficiently without the need for in-house technical expertise. The key features of this innovative software are flexibility, agility, ease of use, performance and scalability.
When it comes to managing projects, SmartCore provides a unique toolset providing all the capabilities required to build and maintain fully featured business solutions, empowering customers and allowing them to manage the workflow, governance and reporting of diverse portfolios.
A working application of SmartCore can be installed for a small group of users in just one week, but it can scale to support many thousands of users working in dozens of countries. Designed to evolve to meet the changing needs of the customer, SmartCore is meta-described; this essentially means that the description of every aspect of the business solution is held and maintained within the database. Now including tile-based interfaces, workflow, wizards, wikis and other built-in assistance, SmartCore is especially useful for new staff members who may be unsure of business rules and processes.
The software takes advantage of the latest improvements in web browser technology and its own new performance features to ensure running SmartCore in a web browser is as fast as a standalone solution.
SmartCore has had a hugely positive impact in the execution of strategy and project and portfolio management for Ninth Wave’s customers, who say the resultant improvements in efficiency and capability mean the product pays for itself within 6-12 months.
SmartCore has been developed entirely by the company’s own in-house, UK-based team. Ninth Wave is proud to be a British company and by delivering a first-class product and service to its customers, the firm is flying the flag for British expertise and helping put the UK on the map as a centre of excellence for digital skills, creativity and innovation.
