Problems Software Development Services Solve | Use Cases

Engaging an outside software development partner is a strategic investment in software success. SDLC Partners solves technical and development problems, delivers technical prowess, ensures continuous engagement, and demonstrates incremental progress, adaptability, transparency, and an approach that focuses on achieving measurable outcomes.

Software Development - Gaps in Technical Skill

Gaps in Technical Skill or Development Capacity

Many organizations need surge development capacity throughout their software cycles while others need ongoing support for new projects or digital products. Outside expertise and ad-hoc capacity ensure you deliver critical customer- or employee-facing solutions on time and within budget.

Software Development - Software Deliverable Value

Software that Doesn’t Deliver Measurable Value

When software development efforts fail to deliver quantifiable value, customer relationships, internal morale, and market confidence erode. This can be caused by a lack of continuous engagement and transparency, an inability to demonstrate objective results, and lose-lose contractual relationships. Key to measurable value is working with a partner that is customer-centric, collaborative, and iterative.

Software Development - Incomplete Discovery Session

Misguided or Incomplete Solutions

If solutions make it to market but miss the mark, it’s typically the result of discovery methods that fail to uncover customer needs and desired experiences, lack adequate feedback cycles or don’t include critical stakeholders. Leading with a Human Centered Design approach, we provide modern methods, cross-discipline thinking, and smart solutions.

Software Development - Not Sustainable or Flexible

Solutions Aren’t Sustainable or Flexible

The solution may appear to work well, today. However, poor architecture, design, or software engineering practices lead to products that are expensive and complicated to change or sustain. Our cross-disciplinary skills in Agile Architecture and design, behavior- and test-driven development, ensure that your build systems are extensible, scalable, and robust.

Software Development - Legacy Applications

Legacy Applications Need to Deliver New Value

Past investments may not be easily replaced as new requirements emerge and new systems need to be launched. Legacy systems can deliver new value streams through Intelligent Automation technology, like Robotic Process Automation, and other integration technologies.

Architecture Services Give Structure to Software Engineering

Architecture Services Give Structure to Software Engineering

We leverage software architects to establish a thorough understanding of your current, technical landscape and solution constraints to ensure that your software roadmap delivers a sustainable, scalable, and “fit-to-purpose” foundation.

We take a cloud-first and managed-API architectural approach that is balanced by systems thinking. This means that software isn’t created in a silo, but with full awareness of technical and business ecosystems.

Related to portal and platform solutions, we design integrated, omnichannel, and event-driven experiences for your customers.  Social Media, IoT, machine learning, and other components are assembled into bespoke solutions that we implement on-premises or in your cloud-based enterprise environment.

Software Development

Software Development at the Core of Software Engineering

Our software development experience ranges from contributing components and application development to full-scale system creation, delivered via supplemental specialists, cross-functional teams, or software development lifecycles that tap into all supportive disciplines as shown in Figure 1.

We develop across a spectrum of environments and languages, mainframe legacy systems or agnostic operating systems, and mobile apps, applying intelligent automation approaches like machine learning and RPA.

QA - Test Automation

Testing and Test Automation Assure Quality Software

We focus on Design Thinking, as well as advocate and build solutions using a test-first approach of hypothesis-, business-, and test-driven development. We promote testing and test automation early in the development cycle to “shift left” testing and build in quality. Our test engineers are “onshore” in the United States, providing highly responsive and compliance-aware professionals.

Our QA services cover unit, functional, non-functional, integration, performance, user acceptance, and post-deployment testing. Test automation is a notable focus deployable as standalone service or as part of continuous integration and a continuous delivery pipeline.

Data Services complement Software Engineering
