Scale with confidence on a reliable foundation.

Rapid growth as an organization is traditionally a good problem, but it can backfire quickly without the technology support needed to sustain it. Without absolutely disrupting your workflow, we optimize your current technology and rebuild only what’s necessary. Our sustainable approach relies on modular programming and recycling good code for faster, more flexible foundations whether you’re serving 10 users or 10 million. Our team is platform agnostic and starts by identifying your key systems and ideal process flows to make honest recommendations about what you’ll need to scale. From there we develop a plan of execution and maintenance to make sure that tech is the least scary part of your growth.

Frequently Asked Questions.

We practice modular development. That means that we don't believe in throwing out old code and starting from scratch. Your old code has been battle tested with countless iterations and bug-fixes. It might be unreadable or ugly but it can be salvaged in parts to save time and costs. We refactor your existing business logic within your old code and recycle it for a modern, more reliable framework.
We spend the time to learn and understand not just your legacy platform, but your business operations as well. We’re not just software engineers, we are true consultants who love even the most mundane of inefficiencies and a burning desire to find the right solution. So, we start with understanding your current state, then brainstorming and writing long form documentation with our suggestions and platform modernization plan. The document is then converted into a Scope of Work (SoW) and timeline + price estimate for your review. Once approved, we start working towards building your new and fancy platform using Agile methodologies and 2-week sprints.

The reason for platform modernization is typically sparked by issues, concerns or impediments that have been created by the legacy application as a result of its technology, architecture or functionality.

Three of these drivers come from a business perspective: business fit, business value and agility. If the legacy application is not meeting the new requirements imposed by digital business, it needs to be modernized to fit properly, and should be upgraded to provide greater business value. Applications that lack the agility to keep pace with the demands of digital business may be a cost or risk liability.

Short Answer: Nobody knows. Long Answer: It depends on your application, the amount of data that may need to be migrated, and the Level of Development (LoD). Most of our smaller projects take 3-4 months, but we’ve also worked on projects that take 15+ months to complete.

Most data migration strategies can be categorized into two categories:

  1. “Big Bang” Migration - Full data transfer in a time-boxed event. Generally best suited for smaller applications where systems overlap is minimal.
  2. “Trickle” Migration - Our preferred migration strategy where your soon-to-be “old” platform overlaps with your “new” platform. We write migration scripts that incrementally update your new platform with data from your old platform either with manual or automated triggers.

There are several factors that dictate which strategy may be used for your specific application, a few of them include:

  • Data Audit to ensure accuracy of our migration strategy avoid unexpected issues
  • Data Cleanup to address discovered issues and resolution prior to migration
  • Data Mapping to appropriately transition your old architecture with the new
  • Data Protection strategy to establish controls in place to maintain quality
  • Data Governance to establish automated functions post a successful migration
