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 SE, 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
We are a team of currently around 70 employees who want to jointly establish SDA as a platform in the market. Our headquarters is located in Hamburg – on the 21st floor of the Dancing Towers at Reeperbahn. We, the SDA SE, founded in 2016, are a joint venture of Signal Iduna, Alliance X, Debeka and msg in cooperation with IBM Germany. We establish ourselves with a fresh mindset and independent technologies while using the strengths of the shareholders at the same time.
What our employees say about us
“SDA SE feels a bit like being in college. We are a colorful mix of partners, colleagues and data. That is what defines us, this dynamic, innovative work. Unlike in the past, however, we do not just build prototypes; we actually come up with IT products that are far ahead of many on the market. That is really motivating!”
“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 SE I can contribute my experience to create truly customer-focussed solutions – while still ensuring legal compliance.”
“The SDA SE is just the right size: on the one hand, the company is big enough to be up to date with new technologies and evolving speed, to keep up with customer needs and to be successful as a result. On the other hand, it’s small enough to keep adapting and evolving the modern, agile organization.”
“The SDA SE is a very open company with flat hierarchies, culturally and in terms of work. If you bring some passion, you can change & realize many things here. At the same time, the company gives you a lot of freedom to develop yourself.”
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.
To build our platform we work with the latest technologies, such as Docker, Kubernetes, Java, TypeScript, Angular, NodeJS, Apache Kafka, Jenkins, GitHub.
