INTEGRATION MANAGED SERVICE
We run combined UK / nearshore (Sofia, Bulgaria) teams for UK customers to work alongside their own teams, taking responsibility for end-to-end functionality including design, build, test and release.
We coordinate work through a dedicated Delivery Director, tasked with maximising the productivity of the team and delivering iteratively according to your business priorities.
If you are undertaking a transformation programme, or simply want to scale delivery without taking on permanent staff, then augmenting your own capability with our Integration Managed Service teams makes sense. We bring high quality, experienced integration specialists at competitive blended rates using a Distributed Agile model.
Our customers find that our Integration Managed Service works well for
- COTS & Managed Service Integration Strategy
- Flexing delivery capability on demand around a small, core in-house team;
- Delivering discrete components or systems that require several Sprints of a distributed Scrum team;
- Introducing new technology, design or platforms (such as cloud, microservices, PaaS and DevOps) where new skills and best practice are needed;
- Programmes to adopt any of our core Java-based platforms such as Openshift, JBoss middleware, Oracle PaaS or MuleSoft AnyPoint;
- Teams seeking to increase test automation.
Integration Managed Services - KEY FEATURES
Integration Managed Service
For more information on how we work together and augment your team, download our datasheet.
We seek long-term partnerships with growing businesses that understand the benefits of Agile working and are prepared to share their development roadmap with us. This helps us build a better service that capitalises on our own experience, frameworks and investment in good, collaborative staff.
Some customers also want to outsource management of their integration platform. We run Cloud Integration Platforms as part of our service. This means we are responsible for both the software development and the live service, including the cloud platform it runs on.
For some, this is an interim state whilst the in-house team adjusts to new technology or DevOps processes. For others, this is a longer-term investment which frees the in-house team to focus on other, high-value business priorities. We are flexible, and our goal is to support your business in a way that makes sense for you.
We don’t employ salesmen, only delivery experts and software professionals who have seen many integration projects across many different verticals. If we can help, we’ll be clear as to the value we bring; if not – perhaps you are outside our core tech, or your problem is in some way unique – we’ll tell you. Our honest and collaborative approach to managed service is well-established and we are keen to hear about your needs: we love an interesting problem to solve.
