We provide products and services for the entire project lifecycle, from the planning phase where we help identify a valid business model for the planned services, through the operational phases where the investment will be recouped.
We adhere to proven standards like the CMM maturity model, ITIL best practices, and an implementation with microservices and SOA.
Ask us about your toughest problem in each of the phases.
We help our customers throughout the software lifecycle, from inception through building and deploying and running a product. We do this by helping them increase their maturity level, according to the CMM maturity model.
Your next product needs a solid business model or else it will become a liability instead of an asset. We can help you build a solid, reliable and presentable business model for the digital world. Our experienced architects can guide you in the right direction so that the resulting implementations will be open and scalable and not lock you in any proprietary technology.
We offer trainings, coaching, and outsourced product development.
We can help you build a prototype product within given time and budget constraints.
The prototype should be feature-constrained but should already generate revenues to prove the underlying business model.
Our RapidSOA approach is well proven to deliver predictable results. If you chose to outsource the development we can find the right partner for your project and provide project managers to assist your internal staff.
How mature are your deployment processes ?
The numbers 1-3 relate to the maturity levels in the CMM maturity model. Can we introduce you to a more mature way of doing things ?
What would be the more mature model for deploying your IT services ?
We built such a tool for one of our clients, and we can build it for your infrastructure as well.
During the run phase, your app or service will allow its users to benefit from its existence, and will hopefully be making money for your company.
If set up correctly, it will scale automatically if demand grows, and free up resources if demand is low.
You will in this case be able to benefit from elastic growth if you migrate your infrastructure to the cloud.
Our ITIL-2020 approach will introduce you to Data Center Management of the future and to Cloud (Reverse) Migration CMM Level 4. Request more info here.
At some point in time, your applications life will come to an end and a new release, a new major version, or a replacement product will be planned.
New requirements have to be defined, maybe more connectivity to other inhouse and external services, and probably a more modern UX has to be designed.
The life cycle starts over again.
Before the Internet of Things, there needs to be an Internet of Services. - Marcel Donges, 2005
In this workshop class we teach how to develop a business model for the Digital Age, and then we design and build one for you to present to your stakeholders. Because of the confidential nature of the product design, this workshop can only be booked by companies and two participants each from both product development and IT need to be present for the whole workshop.
The preferred way to produce a rapid prototype is by storing the content in a graph database like Neo4j and using an IDE like structr.
We use this combination for our prototypes and products and invite you to learn how to use these tools. We offer trainings for be ginners, advanced users and sys admins.

Our Business Development classes for Digital Transformation will be held on demand and exclusively for companies who book it.
The first two blocks can be delivered as classroom training in an off-site location. From Business Model Implementation onward, we accompany your projects.
The CMM Model developed by CMU (Carnegie Mellon University) rates quality levels with one out of five stages. The five stages are:
This model can not only be applied to IT processes, but to all other kinds of activities and even to whole organizations. We help companies reach the next level of maturity.
