The best solution for every challenge. We focus on modularity and integration - with "Bespoke Data Engineering".

Data Engineering from bakdata stands for new capabilities, faster actions, and reliable insights. Manageable, holistic and customer-centered.


What we do

Data Platforms

Our Data Platforms are based on a best-of-breed approach: We offer tailor-made solutions with open technologies. We rely on streamlined, highly efficient and perfectly integrated overall solutions.


Data Pipelines

We develop monitoring and execution systems for your data pipelines thanks to a fault-tolerant and reliable infrastructure. By that, you can concentrate on gaining new insights from your data.


Data Analytics

Make full use of the potential of existing data. We continue looking ahead to standard software and develop individual analyzes for individual needs.


Open Source

Our heart beats for coding. As part of the open source community, we benefit from open source projects such as Kafka or Kubernetes and develop our own open source projects.

bakdata stands for open, individual data solutions and holistic data concepts. Although we see ourselves as an IT service provider, we do not work for, but together with our customers.

With the need to further develop the concept of data management, the computer scientists Alexander Albrecht and Christoph Böhm combined their practical and scientific experience in administration, integration and analysis of large, complex volumes of data. With that, they laid the foundations for bakdata.

Since 2013, we have been working in our Berlin office to counteract non-coordinated and cost-intensive systems. Therefore, we consider classic technologies as well as the latest technology trends or open-source software. For us, “Bespoke Data Engineering” means using clever strategies to expose the added value in your data.

Bakdata is scientifically accompanied by Felix Naumann, Professor of Information Systems at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany.



Our services cover everything from traditional commercial database systems of established providers, to state-of-the-art open source software and in-house developments. We bundle highly-demanded expert knowledge with our core competence in the field of Data Engineering. We draw on many years of experience in education, research, and practice, as well as on current standards from science and technology.

Using approaches from the fields of statistics, machine learning and knowledge management, we enable scalable solutions. For more efficiency and lower risks.
