Brett is also the creator and data architect of the AnnLighten® software platform. He identified certain flaws in status quo approaches in data management and data governance which are unsustainable as organisations become more dependent on their data assets. He and his business partner/sister decided to create a new framework to address the primary challenges to provide a single view of key organizational information - for both large and small organizations. The framework acted as a base for the AnnLighten® software.
