Scaled Agile Framework

SAFe is a knowledge base of proven success patterns for implementing Lean – Agile software and systems development at enterprise Scale. Our program management team passionately believes in SAFe and are experienced in applying SAFe at the enterprise scale.

ITIL

Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is a set of concepts and policies to manage IT infrastructure development and operations.

In the waterfall approach to software development, everything goes through phase gates that are sequential. Simply put, this means a service may be obsolete by the time it is ready for use.

It starts with a universe of requirements, followed by Big upfront design (BUFD), followed by code marathons leading to a big bang software release. This type of software development practice is too risky and inflexible with too many unknown dependencies and produces a product that can be leap years from real user requirements.

Resource fungibility is a traditional practice that consulting organizations use to optimize resource utilization. Simply put, this means move resources from one contract (less profitable) to another (more profitable).

The core premise of this model is “Fungibility” assuming the same level of productivity and domain knowledge and expertise when moving from one project to another.

In reality, these challenges lead to half baked knowledge, rigid designs,  lack of flexibility, and suboptimal services.

Our Approach is Different.  How?

 

Agile and DevOps

Our passionate engineering team is committed to following a disciplined agile delivery approach with just enough architectural runway ,incremental delivery and quick feedback cycles.

Purposeful Software

We aim to completely understand and maximize the purpose of everything we do.  We are very picky about projects we work on and look for ways to transcend beyond ourselves to something meaningful, connecting truly with the mission.  Why? Research shows, and we agree that this is the only way to think from the heart.

Emerging Technology Expertise

We have a dedicated R&D function that focuses on leveraging emerging technologies used by the best and brightest in silicon valley to elevate government services.

Impeccable Credentials & Domain Knowledge

Our people are our secret sauce.  We only hire the very best and the most passionate.  We believe in investing our team’s growth, empowering them with the best tools possible and empowering them to solver for our customers.  Our resources are top 1% in the industry and are very selective about what we do.

Project Turnaround

The best laid plans are just that, the best laid plans. Projects invariably run into issues. You are not alone. A recent study put the chances of failure or delay for large projects at 94%. If your projects are trending yellow or orange, we might be able to help.

We can bring in our experienced SWAT team of technologists to get things back on track.

By combining our decades of industry experience to identify root causes coupled with our proven process to move downstream and eliminate bottlenecks, we may be that team that can save the day.

If you have a project that could use a face lift or a turnaround, we can help.

Time is of essence, If you connect with us early enough, we might be able to turn things around quickly. If it can’t be done, we will help you apply best practices and mitigations required to communicate to stakeholders and will collaborate on creating a revised plan.
