Digital

Start Ups

Your business is built on technology that you need to get right for your customers; and you inevitably have an emotional and financial need to be first to market. It is natural to be tempted into prioritising getting the technology to market quickly over quality as the right approach.

As a new technology business, you only have one opportunity to surprise and delight your customers. If the technology does not work, is slow, or fails to delight, all the effort you have put into getting the right backers, PR, marketing and sales are wasted. Fail with your technology now, and you will be paying forever.

We are the best people to work with you because we understand the multiple technology challenges that you face and can help you to:

  • Understand the needs of your customers and business and therefore what needs to be delivered
  • Get the right partnerships, right people and manage important stakeholders
  • Put the right processes in place
  • Provide whole business continuity, and deal with the unexpected
  • Focus on and identify ROI
  • Meet your regulatory compliance objectives
  • Set up testing services from the beginning – Get it right the first time
  • Work within time constraints – Get processes in place quickly
  • Make governance and assurance part of the day job but only when required.

We have direct experience of getting start-ups to market quickly and efficiently in both FinTech and InsurTech, giving you the confidence to go live.

 

Established Financial Services

our organisation is likely to be facing threats from start-up disruptors, or you may have decided that technology is the answer to better customer engagement. So where do you start? Will you be truly Digital, or will you end up bolting an application to an existing legacy system?

Either way, you will have a set of challenges that need to be overcome, including significant complexity and you will need to be able to provide a seamless transition through a customer’s journey.

Some studies suggest that incumbent banks and insurers have 3-5 years to become digitally proficient, or their revenue and profit will migrate to more digital-savvy competitors.

Release Engineering

Delivering reliable software and services requires a predictable release process. If you are a start-up with a single developer or an organisation with many, release engineering brings massive benefits to the agility, responsiveness and quality of releases. We help you to accelerate value from your investment.

Our Release Engineers can help you deliver a framework or integrate with your team. They will work with your software engineers defining all the steps required to release reliable software from the creation of code to the continuous integration, testing, packaging and deployment.

They focus on:

  • Compiling code/Continuous Integration
  • Verifying that the software on the end user systems continues to execute properly
  • Providing source code quality control
  • Code branching and merging strategies
  • Introduction of automation across the entire pipeline.

The benefits of release engineering include:

  • High release output
  • Quicker release schedules
  • Increased productivity
  • Removal of duplicated activity
  • Improved collaboration
  • Greater agility and flexibility
  • Less likely to be a release failure
  • Delivery of business value sooner.
