This week, Cardiff-based business intelligence company AMPLYFI attended a Smart Cities trade mission in Taipei to establish new trading links and meet industry experts, with support from the Department for International Trade.
The Smart City Summit & Expo showcases cutting-edge technologies and services from the UK that will help create sustainable cities for all. Ranked fourth in innovation capability by the World Economic Forum, Taiwan is set to develop smart cities as part of its economic growth strategy, providing numerous opportunities for UK technology businesses.
AMPLYFI has seen accelerated growth over the past 18 months as a result of major contracts with firms such as Bayer, RBS and the Ministry of Defence.
In Taiwan, senior figures from AMPLYFI connected with leaders in the technology industry, showcasing their software platform DataVoyant™, which leverages open source data from the Surface and Deep Web to help businesses gain greater insight and improve decision-making.
HM Trade Commissioner for Asia Pacific, Natalie Black, said:
“The Smart Cities trade mission showcases some of the UK’s best technology and innovation. UK-Taiwan bilateral trade rose to £6.1 billion in the year to the end of Q3 2018, making Taiwan one of the UK’s largest trading partners in the Asia Pacific region.
“I am delighted to see AMPLYFI exploring business opportunities in Taiwan and across Asia Pacific, putting the UK at the forefront of the artificial intelligence industry.”
Established in 2015, AMPLYFI has since built a global reputation in the business intelligence, research and big data analytics markets across Europe, North America and Southeast Asia.
With 75% of its customer base outside the UK, the company is now predicted to reach a turnover of £130 million in the next four years.
Chris Ganje, CEO and co-founder of AMPLYFI, said:

“Asia is a significant market for us to tap into, and we’re proving across the region that our technology – which can be used in any language – is changing the way that the business intelligence industry operates.”
Businesses such as AMPLYFI drive technology innovation across the UK and globally. The company’s success is key to the UK’s growing artificial intelligence sector – estimated to contribute £654 billion to the economy by 2035 according to Accenture.
