What we offer
Proof of Concepts

We develop non-functional, or limited functionality, effective proof-of-concept software models for organisations looking to secure funding or board level approval. Used to validate your initial vision of a software product or development project, these prototypes have multiple benefits. From ensuring the feasibility of high risk technical features (such as integrating with undocumented 3rd party APIs), providing a visual demonstration of your product's workflows, generating early user feedback and providing supporting material for process analysis around complex product features.

Data Analysis & Learning

As process automation becomes ubiquitous, larger quantities of data are being captured digitally. We can help you plan and deliver strategies for data cleansing, transformation, consolidation and warehousing, allowing you to monitor key metrics, develop dynamic reports and react to trends and movement in your underlying business data. Beyond basic statistical techniques for analysing data, we work on innovative projects for data analysis, including the implementation of machine learning techniques for anomaly detection.

Agile Adoption

Working as software consultants or alongside software teams, we analyse current processes and operations for opportunities and vulnerabilities. We propose and implement appropriate agile methods to increase efficiency, ensure teams are more transparent and that software can rapidly respond to changes and feedback. When implemented correctly, agile methods can significantly reduce project risk by focusing on early deliveries and continuous feedback loops. At Audacia we have successfully implemented various agile approaches and frameworks (i.e. Scrum, Kanban) across multiple sectors and team configurations.

Software Architecture

As a Microsoft Gold Partner, we have extensive experience in software consulting, working on multiple large-scale enterprise software projects, across a variety of industries. By accessing the shared knowledge and experience of our teams, we can review, define and, where necessary, refactor your core platform architecture. From selecting the best client side frameworks, to deciding if you're ready for .NET Core, we ensure your software is fit for purpose and has the ability to also scale and adapt to support future growth and change in business direction.

Legacy Migration

When legacy systems no longer support your future growth, our software consultants research options and formulate a comprehensive strategy for transitioning to a new software infrastructure. We gain a clear understanding of your current needs and future goals to propose options across bespoke, off-the-shelf and blended/integrated solutions, including the management of legacy data transformation and migration. Our work covers a range of instances, from multiple instances of VB/Access systems across disparate geographic locations, to software products that have reached end-of-life.

Technology Integration

By reviewing your processes and software infrastructure, we determine the most efficient way to automate communication between multiple systems. We increase operational efficiency by removing double entry of data and reduce risk by ensuring synchronisation of process and data across multiple platforms. Every approach to integration is different, requiring consideration of factors including: 3rd party system interfaces, latency of data (i.e. real-time vs batch processing), support for validation, handling of errors/transaction rollbacks and performance monitoring. Understanding your unique requirements, we can propose and implement the most suitable solution.

Our process
Project Review / Feasibility
01
Firstly, we have an initial conversation to run through your project ideas and challenges, get to know your business and discuss your current infrastructure to decide if a bespoke solution is the best approach.
Requirements Review & Backlog Definition
02
After analysing and defining your project requirements and roadmap, we work to define a backlog of features and prioritise using the MoSCoW method. The backlog is then reviewed and features are planned into iterations.
Development & Testing
03
We then begin developing your software application using the agile methodology, focusing on communication and collaboration, with shared ownership, ensuring that your end solution delivers the greatest value.
Migration
04
If your project requires, we plan, manage and schedule the migration process from one operating environment to another, ensuring the successful delivery of your project with minimal downtime and adverse risk.
Release & Post Release Support
05
As part of our end-to-end service, we support you in the release of your application and deliver reliable and secure hosting environments to suit your requirements in order to maximise your systems performance.
Ongoing Support
06
After your application has gone live, we offer tailored support agreements based on your requirements, making sure that your solution remains reliable and performant and continues to drive business value.
