Applications Consultancy

Our consultants have many years' experience delivering new systems and functionality to blue chip organisations. We are happy to provide consultancy at any stage of your project whether it's technical insight or advice on how to approach and manage your project. We have a wide breadth of knowledge, with specialisms in Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Java, .NET, Ingres and OpenROAD. That means we're uniquely placed to advise you on how best to integrate and enhance your systems. And we can help you on all manner of projects whether you are extending your existing systems or creating new ones from scratch.

Open Source

Tough economic times call for a new approach to software development and demand that organisations find better, faster and more affordable ways to develop new applications. Open source software is now widely adopted as a suitable platform for mission critical, enterprise scale deployments. Simply put, for each type of business problem there is an open source solution.

Even though the use of Open Source is growing, some remain sceptical that it is insecure, unreliable, incompatible and immature. As an experienced Open Source provider we understand these concerns and will highlight the real value of using open source in your organisation (financial, functional and infrastructure benefits) whilst at the same time dispelling some of these common myths.

We are focused on providing Enterprise Class solutions built on an Open Source software stack. We have partnered with open source vendors such as Red Hat, JBoss, Talend, Jaspersoft, Pentaho, SpringSource and MuleSoft to round out a complete offering for the creation and maintenance of enterprise grade solutions for larger organizations.

Systems Integration

It can be difficult to find the skills and budgets necessary to deploy the perennial system rewrites that many IT service providers propose. More so when you also have to deliver cost-effective back office systems integration, plus new browser-based mobile applications that your organisation may be demanding. Most Actian-based applications don't stand alone, they also need to be integrated with systems built with other technologies such as Java or .NET. This is where our Application Services team can help. They have extensive experience developing new applications and enhancing existing ones. They are also skilled at working through the full systems development lifecycle - from capturing system requirements to implementation and support. Our experience runs from the database layer, to the business logic layer, and the presentation layer – so we can help you minimize risk while delivering new value from old systems. Any perceived risk is further mitigated because we always use proven, consistent methodologies, procedures, standards, forms and templates to deliver your solution.
