Business Transformation. DevOps and MIaC. Websites and Apps. Product Development. Outsource and Partner Management.
Here's a little informal feature overview of what we do...
Resolve to Evolve
Business Transformation Consulting
Understand internal processes, standards, and the culture in your organization: bottlenecks vs potentials, barriers to adoption vs inspirations and motivators, and more. Know where you actually are and why you are there.
Recognize external forces: competitive, regulatory, technological. Identify opportunities in your ecosystem: emerging and shifting markets, national and global events, and evolving customer preferences and user demands.
Create and follow a path that leads your organization from where you are today to where you need to be tomorrow. Measure your progress as you go and collect analytics that power your decision-making. Connect the dots.
Implement process that supports your true needs, rather than compromise your needs to bend to someone else's process. Leverage software-enforcement everywhere. Document everything. Find anything. Account for everything.
Invest in the human dimension of your organization. Refine hiring practices, training, and mentoring for your staff. Improve experience, satisfaction, and success for your customers. Enhance opportunity for your partners.
Get the very best technology for your budget and mission. Position your organization to easily deepen your tech investments as your budget grows. Be always ready to adapt and refine your tech as your mission evolves.
If You Build it, They will Come
DevOps and MIaC Consulting
Use your own staff to build solutions for your organization's processes with our componentized infrastructure, or engage us to implement your domestic projects with our unmatched collection of infrastructure capabilities and options.
Build website and web app solutions for your clients with our infrastructure components. Whitelabel our offerings and present them as your own, or take us with you as named project partners on a project-by-project basis.
Implement web projects with as much (or as little) dev tech as you like, and thrill your web and content development teams. Retain the power to write code in-house, if you like, or onboard guest developers whenever you need.
Infrastructure packages that go beyond hosting or even "managed hosting". Start instead with complete "managed ecosystems" that include modular apps and plugins, optimized visual and UX components, and much more.
Create virtually any kind of project on private servers that we maintain for you and be free of big data: cloud storage, dev tools, marketing automation, and, of course, websites. You can even build your own hosting farms!
Enrich your selected infrastructure solutions with as many or as few of our development and production features as you need: managed versioning, cloud IDE's, CI/CD, multi-environment parity provisioners, and much more.
Win on the Web
Websites and Apps Consulting
Build "traditional" WordPress websites with the very best in modern tech and process. Or, create leading-edge hybrid projects with "headless" WordPress sites and apps that integrate beautifully with frameworks like Gatsby.
Sell online with the most widely used and best-supported e-commerce platforms and payment gateways. Optionally add membership-based sales, made-to-order production solutions, AR/VR/NextGen visualizers, and more.
Extend your reach with modern SEO for best possible findability, and effective communications and marketing. Be inclusive with accessible content. You can even run your own community and create an authoritative destination.
Enhance existing processes with web tools that run within your own site. Even if you start with a simple brochure website, grow it gradually to supplement your offsite routines, replace outdated processes, and automate your business.
Go serverless with AWS or Cloudflare! Combine the power of WP in a safe and sequestered environment with the performance and security advantages of static-fied content in the cloud. Or go with a completely serverless stack!
Build new websites, rebuild troubled sites, merge multiple sites, or split mega-sites into smaller projects. Migrate your sites from inferior service to our top tier managed solutions. Build on optimized and standardized environments.
Make it to Market
Product Development Consulting
Prepare your product idea for implementation with our five-step methodology, the Five Able Principles. Prove viability and position for success by verifying your product is Buildable, Automatable, Documentable, Marketable, and Outsourceable.
Work with us as guest implementors embedded in your environment. Learn more about your own capabilities and objectives as you teach us about your product and organization. Then leverage the unique insights we all developed together.
Learn how to learn about your own production, competitive, and regulatory environments. Leverage the best authoritative information sources for your decision making processes, and do so with comprehensible intel that is actually useful.
Commit to all the relevant standards (industry, law, common sense), and learn how to build with repeatability and supportability always in mind. Experience the liberating power of true standards compliance and benefit from the creativity it enables.
Create or commission demos, mockups, user tests, limited releases, and beta programs. Set expectations with investors and internal authorities alike by using proofs and models that can boost stakeholder confidence, and do so realistically.
Discover how much your project is actually costing your organization, and how much you need your product to earn for it to be worth your investment. Go further by settings goals and benchmarks to pursue success rather than mere survival.
Scale Out and Scale Up
Outsource and Partner Management Consulting
Find outsource shops that specialize in the practices and technologies your organization actually needs, rather than settle for a convincing pitch that simply promises more tech prowess than you happen to have in-house at the moment.
Work with your outsource in a truly and efficiently collaborative interchange. Avoid the gaps and dropped balls that come from tossing work to your outsource with nothing more than hope and good intentions to manage expectations.
Measure outsource production quality and cost-effectiveness on an ongoing basis, rather than just at end of project or major milestones. Always know how well your outsource is performing against agreed technical and business benchmarks.
Manage your outsource providers in short sprints that cycle as rapidly as possible, and produce actionable deliverables as often as possible. Avoid vendor lock-in by enabling your organization to change direction as early and as rapidly as needed.
Produce product that is as high in quality as you would demand of your own internal staff. Get documented, supported, extendable, and maintainable product that your organization can trust even after your outsource is no longer in the picture.
Leverage global technology markets to enable ongoing production even during your off-hours, while also maintaining active administrative control over remote outsource providers. If your organization needs it, you can even run a 24/7 operation!
