Our History

While the market was already taking a turn towards digital technology, the lack of service providers was quickly on the rise. Thus, back in 2005, Christoph Steindl and Christian Federspiel acknowledged the opportunity of founding Catalysts. A software development company from Austria, that creates digital solutions, tailor-made for each client’s needs focusing on areas like Internet of Things, AI and Big Data, Replacing Legacy Systems, Machine Learning and High Performance Computing. Being result-oriented, Catalysts has been able to accept the most difficult challenges and come up with the best solutions to help customers grow their businesses, and innovate alongside them.

Crisp Research was founded in Germany, in 2013 by Steve Janata and Dr. Carlo Velten. Crisp Research soon became a reference point in the industry by focusing their efforts on future technology and market trends. With a team of experienced analysts, consultants, and software developers, the main focal point was revolving around emerging technologies such as cloud, analytics, and digital marketing. Aiming for excellence over the years, Crisp Research has managed to not only support clients in their digital transformation, but with their business processes as well.

In 2020, Catalysts and Crisp joined forces and formed a new company – Cloudflight.
With more than 400 visionary digital strategists, experienced software architects, leading data scientists, and cloud engineers in 18 locations, we strive to provide end-to-end digital services in Austria, Germany, Romania, and the Netherlands. From building new products and businesses, fostering and teaching agile culture, to scaling up IT infrastructure, we assist our clients in their journey, with our expertise. We believe that together, we can create exceptional solutions to make an impact on our customers’ digital businesses and make software that matters.
