I need a creative adverb analogous to "humanly" but having to do with machines or software, to put in place of machinely in the following example sentence:

Let's figure out how the software can help us keep this matter as private as humanly, and machinely, possible.

    For software it's obviously softwarily. ;-) – Hot Licks Sep 22 '16 at 22:31
  • If you're not trying to be funny you'd just say "as private as possible." Saying "as private as humanly, and machinely, possible" is done for humorous effect. – developerwjk Sep 22 '16 at 23:41

Consider technologically, which means:

In a way that relates to or involves technology.

It may not be "creative" but it works nicely in your sentence as well as a simpler one:

  • Let's figure out how the software can keep this matter as private as technologically possible.

  • Let's figure out how the software can keep this matter as private as humanly (and technologically) possible.

I'm thinking in the same ball park as Silenius.

Although I would go with technically.

Involving or regarding the technology available. - ODO

Although it might be even less creative, since it's even more common before possible.
