Have a complex problem that needs solving or MVP that you would like to turn into an enterprise-grade offering? Our team of technology, service design and business experts will work together with your team to design and assist in implementation. Minimise risk, accelerate progress and turn innovative ideas into real solutions.
It doesn’t matter how technically sophisticated a solution is unless it is focused on achieving the desired business value. We don’t build technology for technologies sake. Business value is at the heart of everything we do and that begins with a comprehensive requirements gathering process.
At Curvestone we believe good design and software architecture and Agile / Lean development practices can go hand in hand. By prioritising your requirements and building a scalable modular architecture software delivery doesn’t have to be “All or nothing”. We can build a delivery process which delivers the highest value critical functionality early and lets you add the “nice to haves” later in the process.
You can never be sure what the future will bring so you don’t want a solution that only meets the needs of today, you want to be confident you can evolve your solution with your business. By developing a flexible architecture we ensure that the system is scalable, flexible, and maintainable. This results in a system that can grow and evolve over time to meet changing needs and requirements.
We understand that when you build a solution for the future you have to consider more than just what it takes to build it. It’s essential that the cost of the whole software lifecycle is considered. By selecting best in class components which tie in with your corporate standards and “golden stack” we ensure that we design applications which are reliable and easy to maintain and avoid premature obsolescence. By developing a clear and easy to understand application architecture the solution can evolve to meet future requirements without becoming bogged down with technical debt.
Our skilled analysts will work with your team to understand current practices and workflows to develop a full understanding of your processes and the drivers of your business value.
Like Henry Ford we know that sometimes users will ask for a “Faster Horse” when they really need a car so we work to understand the real business drivers behind the requested features.
Once we have your requirements we prioritise them using techniques like MoSCoW to make sure the most valuable features are delivered early.
Our expert software developers and solution engineers will design a flexible solution architecture which effectively meets the needs of your business. Our developers are versed in the latest techniques including DevOps, Continuous Delivery, Infrastructure as Code, micro services, containers, and event driven architectures, but also understand the importance of building solutions that are sympathetic to your current technology stack and in house expertise.
Solution architecture shouldn’t just mean building a new solution from scratch. Often the best solutions make use of the systems and resources you already have access, off the shelf software, SaaS solutions, productivity software like spreadsheets, BI tools, and low code platforms. Our analysts can help you with these “Make vs Buy vs Hybrid” solutions to help you find the right mix that gives you the shortest time to achieving the business value you need.
We know that not all projects are greenfield and many existing systems evolve over time. Our technologies can help you understand your legacy systems evaluate their fitness and develop solutions which work along side them or help you to update them, decompose them into micro services, or rebuild them depending on what is right for you.
The ESG space can be daunting. For companies new to ESG, with limited experience and understanding of the field, we can provide advice on how to identify value and set you on the right path.
ESG is all about data - so we will start from there. Our team will bring scientists and consultants that can evaluate and help you understand how ready you are to start your ESG Digital Transformation.
There is a lot happening in ESG right now. For companies that want to understand the competition, or need help making a strategic decision like a Make or Buy, we can structure and organise the process so you are confident you are making an informed decision.
Sometimes bringing the ESG expertise and capability internally is necessary. We have delivered custom ESG solutions for clients - we will help you identify the business and user needs, and build bespoke functionality to match your process requirements.
