Alpha Cogs LTD Executive Interview

Nicola Cogotti
Nicola Cogotti
CTO, Founder and Platform Architect
Visit Profile
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the organization.
Greetings, I am Nicola Cogotti, the Chief Technology Officer and founder of Alpha Cogs - a software development company highly specialized in complex distributed cloud architectures, and OTT platforms enriched by AI. With more than two decades of experience in the industry, I am a highly skilled Platform Architect. My ultimate objective is to spearhead the global software industry alongside my company and the exceptional team I have assembled.
What is the story behind starting this company?
Back in 2017, I wanted to start a development company where everyone on the team was highly technical and specialized in IT. I have worked in many companies which were run and led by non-technical leaders who, most of the time, were giving false expectations and suboptimal solutions to their clients. We think that software development and IT is a very highly specialized sector that requires highly skilled people working in it to produce the best result.
What are your company’s business model–in house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
We have a super energetic and innovative remote development team that has proven track records of working with companies like Disney, Royal Opera House, MarcopoLearning, Telestream, General Electric, and many more. We do not outsource to third-party vendors as we use our internal team, but we have a partnership with the Artificial Intelligence Department of Pisa University, being able to quickly scale up or down our workforce from a pool of highly skilled engineers available to us.
How does your company differentiate itself from the competition?
We have been a remote company since way before COVID made this setup the norm, this is part of our core beliefs, as we also adopt a “Ryanair philosophy” - cutting everything that is not a direct benefit to our clients and that is not directly connected to the final success of their mission.

Our team is highly technical and specialized in IT and we pride ourselves in giving solid tech advice and services from estimates to development, QA & further maintenance. The unwavering commitment to this approach reflects the belief in substance over appearance. Every task is approached with an engineering-driven mindset. While this way of operating may not be as flashy as other competitors, it is undeniably more efficient. When it's your complex IT idea on the line, efficiency, and results are what truly matter.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?
With over 25 years of experience in the field, our engineers have covered almost every industry but our strongest are media, sports, Motorsport, education, and entertainment. Some of our senior engineers during their careers have contributed in a fundamental way to projects for some of the biggest companies like UEFA, Royal Opera House, Telestream, and Disney to start-ups like MarcoPolo Learning, GetWaterFit, and Wandoora to name a few. We have found great success in serving these sectors, with a remarkable client retention rate of up to 94%.
Please share some of the services that you offer for which clients approach you the most for?
We specialize in creating compelling Over-The-Top (OTT), Mobile, Media Assets Management systems, and web platforms that harness the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), and Augmented Reality (AR). We also have a dedicated high-performance team specialized in creating state-of-the-art code for critical and performance demanding software and video games. Our expertise extends from crafting complex, highly available, high-performing cloud-based architectures tailored to the media and sports industry to helping startups develop their life-changing idea and go to the market.  Team augmentation is also one of the services that our clients come to us for.
What is your customer satisfaction rate according to you? What steps do you take to cater to your customer’s needs and requirements?
Our current customer satisfaction rate stands at 8.5 out of 10 and we are committed to keep learning and improving our services. Our team is proficient in implementing agile methodologies, covering everything from requirements analysis to delivery and service support. We believe that the reason we have a great satisfaction rate is our approach “See If You Like It Before You Buy It”. When you buy a car or a dress you usually want to check it, try it on, or drive it to see if you are ready to buy it. Why not do the same with your software? We offer a discovery phase where a Senior Architect and UX/Designer craft three critical documents: a high-fidelity wireframe, an architectural solution, and a project estimate. If required, our designer will create some visuals to show where the artistic direction is going. We are so sure of what we do and our skills that this first iteration is for free and on us.
What kind of support system do you offer to your clients for catering to their queries and issues?
From the discovery stage where we assess the project and prepare an estimate to make sure there are no technical surprises along the way to post project support and maintenance if required. Our team is always reachable via email or phone call for any explanation, advice, or bug review. We do not shut down after the project is done. There were cases when our work was a part of bigger projects and when something went wrong on the whole project, we helped to quickly assess the reason and even if it was not our part at fault, we helped to get the project back on the road. We are invested in our client’s success and do everything in our power to make it happen.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
We are very flexible and always try to meet our client’s needs, so there is not only one method.

In most common cases we set 3 payments: 20% of the payment at the start, followed by 20% when the project reaches the halfway point, and the remaining 60% upon completion of the project. The upfront payment may vary depending on the nature of the business relationship and the length of the contract.

Usually, we create a detailed project estimate, the agreed project cost will be fixed and will not vary unless there is a change in requirements. We are happy to accommodate any changes along the way as we know that business goals & processes could change. We will just draft an addendum or agree via written communication.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
Our budget requirement starts at £10,000 GBP but we have worked even for pro-bono projects if we thought it was for a valid cause.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2022?
The project had a minimum value of £40,000 and a maximum value of £250,000.
Where do you see your company in the next 10 years?
Our aim is to form a worldwide alliance with renowned and established corporations, where we can offer our expertise and quality skills in development to engage in continuous project-based growth.

We also are developing 2 in-house products:
  • Alphabuzz: A groundbreaking OTT and mobile platform that aims to democratize Motorsport by connecting fans and teams directly and interactively. We want to give everyone the possibility to showcase their talent and passion to their supported team and have a chance to be directly recognized. We are currently in contact with a few great drivers and teams that agreed to collaborate and help make this dream a reality! This is a tribute to our passion and love for Motorsports and technology, as well as, helping to make the Motorsports industry closer to everyone who dreams and lives it but otherwise is not able to be a part of it.
  • BTE (Be The Eye): A smart city application that aims to empower individuals to make a positive impact in their local communities and beyond, thanks to the use of the latest technologies such as Computer vision, Image recognition, and AI. This is a tribute to our commitment to helping make the world a better place by giving people tools that will empower them to make a difference, starting locally. 
We hope that these 2 products will help and entertain millions of people in the next 10 years :)

Media

ROH departments formerly relied on a large number of non-integrated systems, posing a productivity and organizational challenge for their schedule. 

The same content could be stored in several components across the system, inaccessible to the user. 

In addition, each platform required trained specialists to perform a lot of basic management tasks. This resulted in an inflexible, sub-optimal, and expensive way of working.

We assisted in the design and implemented a cloud-based media asset management solution, remotely accessible from any device via a web interface.

Simplicity was our priority, therefore, we came up with an intuitive user interface (UI) that enables even non-technical staff to perform their creative work too. 

By adopting a serverless architecture, we eliminated the need for maintaining and managing complex and expensive servers, significantly reducing the cost of maintenance and increasing the scalability of the solution.

As a result of this, ROH has a cost-effective, efficient, and user-friendly media asset management solution that enables ROH to improve its management systems. 

We believe that our approach to cloud-based media asset management, along with our use of serverless architecture and advanced technologies, represents a significant step forward and now ROH can take advantage of:

The cloud technology for remote working, for added collaboration and adaptability. 

The ability to record rehearsals and make them instantly available for playback through a web portal on a mobile device.

Almost a real-time access to the content, enabling users to easily search, browse, and stream their desired video content without any lag or delay.

The entire architecture, in case of a disaster, could be recreated within minutes, thanks to the use of a Serverless Framework that makes it possible to deploy the entire infrastructure on AWS with a simple command, recreating a perfectly functional new system.

Scalable solution that could be easily tailored to the unique requirements of ROH.

Media

Thanks to over a decade of experience in working for the media industry and OTT platforms, we had the honour to work for one of the biggest worldwide brands to develop one of the most advanced prototype systems to ensure media quality delivery to Disney studios. 

Thanos is a near real-time platform to analyze media content information directly on the client machine before the upload of the content itself. The media information is attached to the uploaded file and compared to Disney's internal media management system to ensure the expected video quality. AI is used to analyze video streaming to check in-depth video and content quality in order to have a first verification of the number of black frames and that the content is appropriate (no nudity scenes or alcohol advertisements, for example).

After a first automated check, the media assets status is changed from "in Review" to "Passed" or "Not Passed". Then a report on the analysis is created and a final human approval is requested by the Quality Assurance admin. 

The Architecture design is entirely serverless and fully deployed in Amazon Cloud ensuring the maximum availability, scalability, and cost-saving solution.
The solution features a powerful search engine based on natural text search to retrieve the assets.

Alpha Cogs thinks that is due to everybody trying to do their best to contribute to saving and taking care of our Planet and environment.

Our commitment to this is clear and well-documented. It is, for this reason, that we are proud to have worked to build Get Water Fit app that will help people in saving one of the most precious resources we have, the Water.

Never like these days, it is important to be considerate when using resources being electricity, petrol or water.

For these reasons, Alpha Cogs team supported the client not only in developing their application but also by providing consultancy about the best practices and features to include in their application and supporting Get Water Fit during the launch of the new app in the Google and Apple stores.

The feature we proud of the most and that we believe will make the application more enjoyable to its users, is the contextual in-app guide that guides the user at its first app use with a step-by-step easy-to-follow interactive guide.

We Celebrate our client and we went the extra mile building this app as it is so very close to our beliefs.

Travel & Lifestyle

We helped Wandoora to develop a cashless payment system for travelers.

Our skillful technical team implemented a full cashless system (backend and App) allowing tourists to enjoy events, services and their holidays without worrying about carrying cash. 

WandoOs are travel coins for cashless use. Customers will be issued with a wristband or by using the wcashless Digital wallet while in attendance to one of many events they support. 

Wcacheless allows to top up wandoOs in the app and users can pay simply tapping wristband on the devices to pay. 

This goes a long way to promote tourism in Tulum and Mexico as there is an increasing number of bars, restaurants, small businesses and events that are using Wandoora’s wcashless in their establishments.

Media

Overcast was about to launch a marketing campaign to support their MAM product and was in need of a modern and attractive design for their website.

Alpha Cogs was selected thanks to our high engineering expertise in the media industry, our highly creative Design team, and our no TEMPLATE policy.

Our approach can be summarised as follow:

  1. Initial meeting with Overcast to understand their needs, goals and direct competitors.
  2. Extensive market research based on the information gained.
  3. Creation and presentation of our Design vision draft with detailed technical explanation (entirely free of charge).
  4. After approval of our artistic direction, we have proceeded with a full redesign of all pages and sections including the production of marketing images for the entire site.
  5. Overcast was constantly kept up to date thanks to weekly meetings between our and theirs teams.
  6. After this phase our designer closely followed Overcast's development team to give instructions on the design implementation.

Our team produced high definition deigns for every single device format supported: Desktop, Tablet and Mobile, producing over 80 pages plus special components such as Menu, Carousels and sliders.

On top of all this, even if the implementation has been completely done by the client's development team, we proposed a full animation choreography for every element, detailing what effect to use on different sections, technical solutions to implement and optimize the performances  according the different devices, and possible technologies to be used in order to achieve the best possible result in engineering terms.

The project seeks to achieve the highest levels of community collaboration and to seed the best ideas with development funding via a community-moderated process.

Every few months, a new fund begins with a set amount of ada budgeted. Millions of ada is available as grants to allocate to projects and as ecosystem rewards. 

At the start of each funding round, the Cardano community proposes ideas that solve challenges within the blockchain ecosystem and the wider world. 

The community then evaluates and votes on which technical, business, creative, and community projects will receive funding.

Our team of 4 engineers developed the registration and delegation system using the Cardano blockchain and supporting wallet integration.

Review Summary

Nicola Cogotti, CEO and CTO at Alpha Cogs, came to my rescue when my AI-driven idea had finally taken shape in an API demo after years of conceptualization. My professional background in the broadcast industry, working with major broadcast channels, gave me the tools to create a captivating demo video. Yet, the challenge lay in transforming this concept into a full-fledged MVP. Finding a partner with the exceptional skills required in this highly specialized and technological space seemed near impossible.
Fate led me to Nicola Cogotti, whose profound grasp of the intricate web of technicalities immediately stood out. I made the pivotal decision to entrust him with the mission of bringing my vision to life, and I haven't looked back since.
The project's complexity was only half the story; the time constraints were equally formidable. Remarkably, Alpha Cogs helped me, surprisingly, to augment the portability of the code base, optimizing the costs I had to face with deployment on cloud.

Review Summary

Alpha Cogs became our savior during the tough times.
We urgently needed developers to support our main learning platform, as well as build a new product: Teacher's portal.
We contracted 3 developers to become a part of our team & it has been a great synergy. Guys are very supportive & understanding of our always changing tech requirements and occasional late evenings going live work process.
Our industry is very demanding and having a tech partner that is able to support not only 9 to 6 hours is a huge benefit.
Alpha Cogs level of technical support from the senior management as well as the quality of developers for the very competitive price has not been beaten so far.

Thank you Julia, All the team enjoyed working closely with you during the support and development. It was challenging at times and the workload was very intense but a skilled and able Project Manager like yourself made everything easier and more bearable.
