Getting to know you
Our aim is to get to know you as a company – your ethos, processes and users, your technology –platforms, infrastructure, and history, your business needs and priorities from a technical and commercial perspective.
We'll hold workshops with your technical team to understand your tech landscape, and then perform our own ‘deep dive’ into your architecture and code.
Our dedicated user experience (UX) team will join forces with our technical leads and help you identify user groups, discovering their pain points, identifying their requirements and ensuring stakeholder engagement. They may synthesise these into actionable user stories and early prototypes and sketches depending on the task. This focus on user-centred thinking ensures the strategy that we recommend delivers at every level.
Our consultants will research everything you need to get your project running. This might include building business cases, planning roadmaps, and identifying team engagements to create a practical and tangible strategy. Whatever stage your requirements have got to, we will keep a firm eye on business value and help you to prioritise the ideas and stories which will help you learn fast and create value quickly.
Improvements and suggestions
We'll identify areas of your technology that are strong and those that need some attention. We'll provide you with pragmatic recommendations for improvement, we can review Off-The-Shelf (OTS) packages for you and we will suggest this route if it is best for your needs.
These recommendations will be organised by business impact and ease of implementation, so that you can choose the optimal order to work through them. Our detailed report will give you a clear and confident understanding of the true health of your current tech landscape.
Planning and road mapping
We'll draw up your "future perfect" target architecture and build a roadmap that lays out a step-by-step plan to implement it. We'll recommend the tools and frameworks that will best help you achieve your goals and suggest when to start adopting each one. This will cover the whole process from coding, through automated validation and testing, to DevOps release processes.
We have spent many years refining our approach and through a series of bespoke onsite workshops and training sessions we can help your team reach the same level.
We have refined our agile methodology over many years to develop a framework that can be adopted by your in-house team. Our key objective is always to minimise business disruption whilst maximising effectiveness, ensuring your team will be ready and enthused to tackle their next software project.
