Custom Applications Consulting

If you analyze any industry one of the key differences between the leader and laggards is how they manage their application strategy and portfolio. A company taking a technical approach to custom applications management does not derive much value from it.


Our applications strategy and portfolio management philosophy are different. We believe in application architectures targeted at both automation and innovation, infusing vertical and functional knowledge, choosing the right technology, experimenting, expanding, regularly streamlining the portfolio for lowering the cost and ease of management and leveraging outsourced skills for application management to have flexible cost structure. We can bring to you our experience in managing application portfolios worth several millions that are the
key source of differentiation to our clients.

1. Helping define the Right Applications Strategy & Architecture

The cost of managing them has ballooned beyond control, users continue to need them, making changes to them are difficult, those applications do not work with each other and does not make up any coherent architecture.

Our applications strategy and architecture provides for defining the right strategy, and architecture that is cost effective, scalable, flexible and easy to maintain and manage.
