SpheraCloud Gives customers greater visibility with real-time data
For more than 30 years, Sphera has been committed to creating a safer, more sustainable, and productive world by advancing operational excellence. As the largest global provider of integrated risk management software, the company helps businesses make sense of their operational data. Its products offer an integrated view of risk and compliance data that can be used to reduce operational risk and improve environmental performance.
With real-time data, companies can create plans and processes that promote worker safety and well-being, resulting in happier employees, reduced downtime, and improved operational maturity. Sphera’s solutions allowed customers to capture data via a flexible interface, which meant that one customer’s data fields would not necessarily match another customer’s data fields.

“SpheraCloud is not something we would’ve gotten done without Forte. If we’d tried to do it internally, it wouldn’t have worked out because we wouldn’t have been able to focus on it, given all the things we’re doing. If we’d brought in another vendor, the deliverable would’ve had to have been too concrete. We needed someone to own the project and execute.”
Chief Technology Officer
Forte assembled a senior-level, on-site product team to get the project started at breakneck speed and delivered the solution under a tight deadline.
Customers are now able to access real-time data that can be used to create customizable reports and predictive analytics for operational performance, industry benchmarking, and planning and decision-making.
For the convenience of the European customers who are subject to GDPR laws, Forte team included special features to anonymize and pseudonymize personally identifiable information.
Now SpheraCloud empowers multinational company to handle risky situations report incidents, assess and managing risk, and have visibility.
Forte was able to map 15 years of relevant data from Sphera’s solutions and aggregate it in a uniform format that could be used to create robust analytics and reports in its SpheraCloud platform.
