Softcif, Inc. serves a key role in helping our clients manage the information that drives their missions or business objectives. We apply our deep technical expertise and proven industry methodologies to help them carry out their tactical and strategic goals including modernization of their IT systems and services.
Our goal is to partner with our customers and help them design, develop, deliver and support their software and infrastructure project initiatives. We strive help our customers reduce the cost and complexity of technology and operations and provide IT enterprises with the agility and effectiveness to respond to rapidly changing business needs and goals.
Architecture is the shape of things to come, and Technology brings that Architecture to life. Neither can exist without the other. Companies (such as Softcif, Inc.) which build systems must have an intimate understanding of both Architecture and Technology if the systems they build are to work efficiently.
Architectures and Technologies change almost continuously – 2 tier, 3 tier, n-tier, distributed, IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, multi-factor authentication – the list of buzzwords and phrases grows daily. Keeping on top of this explosive growth of architecture and technology is a time consuming process for any major enterprise. We excel at keeping up with change and delivering it to our customers. It is our business.
Our core capability is working across complex architectures and technologies to integrate them efficiently. We build in flexibility for change to allow rapid adaption as business requirements change. This integration work requires us to have multi-skilled teams – teams whose members are used to working in distributed, heterogeneous environments where change is the norm.
Not so simple
There is much more to it than meets the eye. How do we design the overall system to be resilient and meet performance targets when key sub systems may be in different countries and exposed to linkage failures and data transmission lags?
Then, how do we ensure that all team members have a solid common understanding of what is required and how it is to be achieved, what specific part each person is to play and how the multiple cross-system linkages will work? Can we be sure that the technologies will knit together? How do we eliminate the chance of last minute show-stoppers in development?
How do we make it all work?
This is where our software project management stands out. We have over 25 years of software architecture experience across multiple technologies. Couple that with our deep understanding of software development risk management, proof of concept and use of agile methodologies such as RUP and Scrum and it is clear that we can design and deliver complex systems with a high degree of confidence.
This capability does not come out of books and training courses (though they are necessary). It comes from real world experience of major projects.
We have the record to prove it.
