We improve the quality of your existing software

Accelerate delivery performance and embrace practices for continuous improvement.

  • Software Architecture

Build quality into the foundation

Unlock the speed, flexibility, scale, and automation benefits of the cloud by making your architecture cloud native. We will help your team define a modular, services-based architecture, and develop your infrastructure as code in the cloud.
  • Pipeline Optimization

Deploy frequently and reliably

Gain stability in your deployment processes with automated builds, testing, and deployments. We’ll introduce infrastructure as code and containerization techniques to streamline workflows and remove surprises from deployments.
  • Cloud Migration

Migrate to the cloud

Reduce your operational costs while gaining the flexibility and dependability of cloud-based infrastructure. We will migrate your servers to the cloud, and configure them to your performance needs.
  • Software Stabilization

Resolve bugs with fixes that last

Don’t let unnecessary slowness, bugs and crashes, or other hindrances slow down your business. Our team will find the problems, correct them, and implement appropriate safeguards so they don’t resurface.
  • Software Rewrites

Leverage your wisdom to rewrite your platform

We’ll work with your team to capture the important lessons and logic within the system it’s replacing. That transition will come with thorough testing practices that ensure we deprecate code only after the new system has adequately achieved feature parity.
  • Data Engineering

Let data drive your business

Generate intelligent and actionable insights with a robust and reliable data platform. Our data science experts will craft a custom solution that lets you collect and analyze the data that’s most valuable to your business.
  • Security

Build more secure systems

Build more secure systems by integrating security into every phase of the development process. Our software crafters bake security directly into features by introducing automated test coverage for security requirements, conducting security reviews early to avoid rework, and integrating security expertise throughout the development process.
