What we do

When someone needs a wheelchair, it’s a task where doctors, medical stores, healthcare portals, healthcare facilities and insurance companies have to join forces to find a solution. When water damage occurs, the landlord, caretaker, plumber, invoicing app and contents insurance need to work together to mend matters in a satisfactory manner so that the customer will be happy in the end.

We, SDA, have stepped up to the plate to simplify the collaboration between customers, insurance companies, start-ups and service providers, and to provide the required technology to create customer-focused solutions.

To do so, we built an IT architecture in the form of Platform as a Service for insurance companies. It consists of three service systems and enables data transfer and data editing between all platform members, and at the same time, clarifies critical questions regarding data management, safety, logins, scaling, etc.

So, let’s take a person who has asthma, for example. With an appropriate app which orchestrates physicians, pharmacists, insurance companies and other healthcare services it will be possible to help this person by providing comprehensive support.

Who we are

Currently, we are a team of about 70 employees who are working on establishing SDA as a platform on the market. We are located in Hamburg – on the 21st floor of the Dancing Towers at the eastern end of Reeperbahn, St. Pauli. We are a corporate start-up which was founded in December 2016 by the shareholders Signal Iduna and msg group with the strategic partner IBM. All three partners deliberately decided to found SDA to develop it with a fresh mindset while deploying the strengths of the shareholders at the same time.

What our employees say about us

“For me, the greatest thing about SDA is that here I have found a group of engineers who is developing a meaningful platform with a lot of passion, sincerity and also a lot of fun. We are constantly dealing with exciting technologies, yet without being driven by buzzwords. For me it’s the perfect combination, also with regard to my personal technological development!”

Eicke, SDA SE

“When I was working on innovations projects in various industries, again and again, it was like banging my head against the brick wall of the IT department. Monolithic and ancient structures that make it impossible to deploy actually valuable assets of established companies. I’m happy that now that I’m with SDA I’m able to fundamentally solve this problem.”

Jakob, SDA SE

“When it’s about exchanging data between different parties, you need to design an incredible amount of things. And it’s not getting any easier, really, when healthcare data is involved. I’m glad that at SDA I can contribute my experience to create truly customer-focussed solutions – while still ensuring legal compliance.”

Christina, SDA SE

How we work

We won’t develop anything that the market doesn’t need. So, we develop the components of our platform with design thinking methods that focus on the partners and insurance companies. For the implementation we use Lean Startup principles – from MVP to continuous development. And we also use SCRUM and Kanban as well as the following supporting tools:

What we work with

SOA? – Microservices! And SOA.

Microservices are what shape us. Not only in the technological architecture, but primarily in the associated organisational form – with teams that are as independent and effective as possible.

Open-Source rather than Vendor Lock-In

In development we are committed to the open source idea, both actively and passively. We develop cloud native. And cloud agnostic, of course.

Modern technologies

To build our platform we work with the latest technologies, such as Docker, Kubernetes, Java, TypeScript, Angular, NodeJS, Apache Kafka, Jenkins, GitHub.

You and what we offer

We want to work with people who demonstrate creative drive and quality awareness. Not only do we develop excellent products together, but also keep developing SDA as a company.
