Software Development

Above all else, we are software developers. While we try to avoid writing code whenever possible, our promise is the delivery of working software early and often.

Our focus is on helping customers learn and adapt quickly.

We choose the right combination of methodology, architecture, technology, and operating model to support rapid innovation.

Our cross-functional teams are skilled in the design, development, and support of software systems. They have a broad range of experience to draw on – from multi-year engagements to specialist consulting on intractable problems. They combine expertise in scalable, distributed systems, problem solving, and a deep desire to bring the latest in technology and technique to the software process.

Prototyping

Sometimes it is important to test an idea before completely committing to turning it into a production-ready application.

As developers who focus on doing “just enough” to bring an idea to life we have become adept at delivering high-quality functional prototypes to our clients.

These prototypes can be used to assess the merits of an idea, garner user feedback, and demonstrate capability much earlier in the process of bringing software to life. Most often we see the software prototype follow on from lo-fi prototyping and preceding the delivery of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP).

Lean/Agile Blueprints

Over the past 12 years we have amassed considerable experience delivering software using Agile processes.

Twelve years ago, we set out to transform the way organisations build software. Today, our software powers some of the biggest ideas in government, commercial and non-profit institutions in New Zealand, solving problems we hadn’t even dreamed of back then.

Continuous Delivery

While Continuous Delivery underpins all of our software development services, we also offer in-house development teams the benefit of our hard-won experience.

We work seamlessly alongside development teams to fully automate their build, validation, and deployment pipeline while allowing them to continue to focus on delivering valuable features.While we typically start with automation of the build and deployment pipeline, we also work on key upstream enablers such as architecture and development methodology.

There is little point in preparing for small frequent releases if a development team have a monolithic application to wrestle with or are labouring under a heavyweight waterfall process.
