About Osmium Data

The strength of heavy metal

Firm Description

Osmium Data is a partnership between two firms with extensive skills and experience in county government information architecture, data management, and workflow implementation, as well as website design, accessibility compliance, and user training: Sunstrata and Goyak Internet Solutions.

Our principals and project staff have existing and long-standing relationships with numerous county governments and other county-level organizations – establishing Osmium Data is a formalization of our commitment to this sector.

Our mission is to streamline the process of submitting forms and documentation for the populations and stakeholders being served by governmental bodies and enable standardized data workflows within a single administrative repository for their staff members. 

Thus, these projects are not just one of many software-development services that we offer – this is what we do.  Osmium Data brings an existing and battle-tested application and database platform to its projects, which can then be customized to the specifications of our clients. 

Key Personnel

All clients have a single Osmium Data project manager as their point of contact to ensure timely and substantive communication throughout their project.  Osmium Data principals have combined decades of experience in public sector data management, and many successful projects completed in the arenas of funding application and form intake management for clients in both the public/government and nonprofit sectors.
