Eight Wire was founded to help companies manage their data and protect their critical systems from unexpected changes. Our SaaS application can handle CSV, spreadsheet, XML and database feeds and fix unexpected changes before it impacts a business system. Eight Wire Limited’s product Conductor fixes the common data errors and formatting inconsistencies that bring conventional IT solutions to their knees and removes the need for on-call technical teams to build and support them.
Eight Wire was born of two founders with 35 years of data consulting under their belt. Based on that experience, they created Conductor, a SaaS application that removes the risk and expense of integrating or moving data between databases, files, and the cloud.
