Software and Solutions Development
Passion for rigorous and excellent software and solutions development runs in our blood, and naturally through our development and bespoke business tools teams. Our head of technology, Kennedy, is well known, admired and sought after for his sincere love of and evangelism of best practice methods in programming, agile methodologies and enterprise-level IT and security strategy. His wide-ranging experience means that breadth of approaches born of surmounting innumerable barriers and challenges will be at your disposal in building strategy, proof of concepts and in the design and development process. At Iconify our developers and consultants have analysed, designed and developed mission-critical software for organisations like Goldman Sachs, Visa and Worldpay, to name a few. We’ll be happy to do the same at yours.
There is a definitive and distinctive difference in the consulting and delivery process when people who live and breathe technology help you solve your technological challenges, and that is what we bring. We believe software should be transformative and approaches to meeting requirements should be focused while methodologies should be flexible enough to accommodate learning and stakeholder participation.
No brand can truly be resonant without robust and effective technology, because the business will lack resilience and facility at several fundamental levels. Therefore, we firmly believe that the Technology your business runs on, relies on is a fundamental pillar of brand strength and operational advantage. This is the advantage we wish to help you develop when you take up our software development and bespoke business tools services.
You could have a brand new development project or a redevelopment requirement and therefore need software and solutions development. You may be in the middle of enterprise and infrastructural programme and have had the courage to realise and accept it’s all gone wrong and a new remedial roadmap is required – we’ve been there and done it! Multi-million-pound projects switching midstream from Oracle to Siebel or adopting a brand new reporting platform 5 minutes after rolling out a prior one because it was not for fit for purpose. All reasons why businesses need partners for their software and solution development requirements. We have some muscular strategies to review and replan and give you the confidence to take the best options identified.
So, if you are after redevelopment, new development, enhancements, systems integration with a mix of platforms and bespoke code/tools/apps, we can help. We like helping friendly businesses operate at their best, and no matter where you are in the software development lifecycle or problem-solving process, feel free to call us to discuss. If we can help, we will. +44(0)20 8191 9008 or contact us.
Bespoke versus off the shelf
Bespoke means it’s made for you specifically but it can mean writing new services and utilities and you may be torn between getting something off the shelf and configuring, which is also very challenging. We can help you determine what the best solution for you would be. If it makes sense to make the time and cost investment to build bespoke code, we’ll help you lay out the process, elicit the requirements and fast track a proof of concept.
We do not turn up our noses at vendor-supplied software or out of the box software. They have their place and many are powerful but do require thought around how configurable they are, how well they can integrate with other suites of pre-existing software and whether in your business’s architecture, it can deliver value. We help you review this and many other considerations as part of our core IT consultancy.
If you decide to go bespoke, we have decades of expertise in helping you specify a solid, suitable solution, tight to requirements, functional processes and operating models working with your teams closely to capture the true requirements – more on that below in Requirements Gathering, Analyses and Challenge.
