About Obashi

Obashi is the world-leading data flow expert and its co-founders have written the fundamental laws and principles around the control, management and governance of the most abundant business resource on the planet: Data.

We call the movement of information between people, processes, and technology - dataflow.

Dataflow is the lifeblood of the modern world. It is as critical to everyday life as the flow of water, energy, and transport. We take for granted the control, management, and governance of these flows, and yet when it comes to dataflow, no one speaks the same language.

Using our unique OBASHI Platform to automate the OBASHI Methodology, we create clarity by modelling the relationships and dependencies between people, processes and technology assets. We help you see the ‘Big Picture’ of how your business works, displaying the results in a way that everyone can see, and anyone can understand.

Methodology & Platform

We recognise that people are at the heart of most businesses. At its simplest, the OBASHI Platform helps non-technical and technical people communicate through the use of easy-to-understand diagrams.

By mapping how data flows, it's possible to see how each asset makes a service or process work. The OBASHI Methodology allows you to visualise the interactions that must be in place for data to flow and, even more importantly, the implications should one of these links fail.

Our fully scalable cloud based OBASHI Platform automates our unique dataflow methodology and allows users to model and produce Business & IT diagrams and Dataflow Analysis Views.

The OBASHI Platform has an intuitive customisable front end, which allows the user to start creating their own visual representations of the way the people, process and technology interact across their organisation

The ability to add and export data and simulate ‘what-if scenarios’ enables the user to perform analysis and reporting from the front-end, supporting business critical questioning and strategic decision making.


Obashi is passionate about teaching the language of dataflow. We work with academic institutions, government bodies, and professional trainers to provide high-quality OBASHI Methodology and Data Flow training. The OBASHI Methodology is accredited by APMG International and taught across the world.

As experts in all thing's dataflow, we have developed Obashi Learn. Currently we support the delivery of the new Higher National Certificate/Diploma unit in Data Flow. In partnership with the Scottish Qualifications Authority and Further Education Colleges, Data Flow is now being taught to college students across Scotland and is an integral part of their learning.

Case studies

The ability to see the ‘big picture’ is essential in strategic decision making. Obashi helps provide that clarity, whether for consultants or students, or individuals who want to make a difference to an organisation.

Throughout the years, Obashi has helped several notable clients see data flow, including Bank of England, Heathrow Airport, BP, Scottish Power and within Formula 1 – to name a few. The OBASHI Methodology and Platform is industry and business agnostic.
