Whether the users are your employees or your customers and business partners, whether they're cloud-hosted, or in your data center or running on the desktop, your business applications are part of the fabric of your company. They are your gateway to the world and they define how your team members interact with each other. Poor applications can drag the whole company down. Great applications can make business sing! At Saggezza, we make great applications.
Nowhere is our practical technology expertise and experience more important than for software development. We use a wide range of technologies and platforms to deliver outstanding applications that get the job done and do not cost a fortune to develop and maintain.
New Application Development - we look at our clients' existing application landscape and build new applications that not only deliver the business functionality using the latest tools and thinking, but also play nicely in your legacy IT environment.
Legacy Applications - we help our clients to figure out the best approach to a legacy application - the right combination of re-design, re-engineering and re-use of existing components.
Structured Development - for enterprise projects requiring a structured approach with rigorous documentation, our teams work using the classic Systems Development Lifecycle (SDLC) or 'waterfall' approach. This drives a project through distinct the distinct phases of requirements gathering, architecture and design, coding, testing and acceptance. Our teams of specialist business analysts, information architects, enterprise architects, UI designers, database designers, programmers, quality analysts and delivery/migration analysts ensure that projects follow the structured methodology and deliver on time, on budget and to specification.
Agile Development - some projects require a less structured approach, needing to show results quickly and perhaps not always having the finished article completely defined up front. Our Agile teams divide the project work into sprints, with each sprint producing a working deliverable which builds on the work from previous sprints. Our trained Scrum masters lead teams through this iterative, collaborative approach, to produce incremental improvements which contribute to the project goal. We use Test Driven Development, which means developers write unit tests first, and then write code which passes the tests.
Transparency - if you walk into any of our development labs, it's easy to figure out what the status of the current project is - we use project planning and tracking tools that keep everyone updated on progress and encourage a team approach to resolving issues. Since we're a global company, our customers and our teams are not always in the same place! That's why we also go to extraordinary lengths to make sure our clients always know what we're doing - with a suite of tools to keep you informed and often an onsite project manager to ensure excellent communication and minimize risk.
Cost Optimization - we work hard to make sure our clients get what they need at a cost that makes sense. This doesn't mean we do everything off shore! It's true that our offshore development teams deliver excellent value for money, but they're usually only part of the picture. An off shore team can be a very long way away and we invest a lot in our local on-shore teams, which gives us the flexibility to do work where it will have the maximum impact - giving clients peace of mind that the job is being done well while costs are under control.
Here are the technologies that we use the most with our application development clients.
