Setting up your delivery capability

To delivery successful integration projects can be challenging.  Starting off on the right foot can be very important in the success of your project.  We can bring the experience of managing integration delivery processes with a number of customers to your project and help you to ensure your team is using good solid and proven practices which will help to give them a good platform upon which to build your solutions.  This includes helping your team with practices such as:
  • Source control
  • Build and deployment
  • Behaviour Driven Development
  • Test Driven Development
  • Design and architecture
  • Developing integration solutions with different methodologies such as Agile/Scrum/Waterfall
  • Managing configuration across your environments
Managing your architecture

With integration projects managing the architecture in a organisation of any kind can be a big challenge.  We can help you to put in place practices to help you track manage and build a solid architecture to drive your business built upon effective integration solutions.
Change and Project Management
Change and Project Management can be two problem areas in integration projects.  It combines the fact that these kind of projects are often technically challenging and communication needs to involve lots or stakeholders or different kinds.  The people we provide or recommend are people who can communicate these kind of things at many different levels being comfortable talking to business stakeholders and development teams alike about integration topics.  We bring experience from a background or managing large integration projects running over long periods with big customers and our believe is that your organisation needs to be in a position to understand and leverage the investment in an integration solution long after any initial project is complete.
Working with your operations teams

We can provide specialist support to your operations teams to help them deliver a quality service to your customers in the day to day management and understanding of integration solutions. 
Project Rescue
One of our common work patterns is when a customer comes to us and their project has encountered problems.  We are able to provide solid advice and guidance or hands on help to get your project back on track.  Sometimes your project might not be in our core area of work but we would be happy to connect you up with organisations we like working with who may be better placed to help you.

We can help you by providing guidance on the right training to develop your in-house teams to better their skills around integration solutions.  We can also provde some adhoc specialise mentoring or training sessions on request.
