Agile Development

Having witnessed the negative effects of classical waterfall development methodology such as obsolete products upon delivery, cost overruns, launch failures, and delay; we are absolute believers in the powerful benefits of agile software development.

When applied correctly and when clients are aligned as well, agile development can achieve higher levels of performance and deliver significantly more business value and user satisfaction.

The process is simple – while keeping the big picture and road map in mind, focus on delivering a small, high priority, sample of what is needed. Have real-world users test and provide feedback. Improve and iterate based on this feedback. Continue focusing on the most important, valuable, urgent, and high-priority features in short, iterative sprints. Deliver these new features as soon as possible so they can be put to use.  Automate the DevOps process and continuous integration / continuous delivery pipeline. At the end of each sprint, reflect on the performance and identify at least one way that we can improve our system, processes, and protocols.

Website Maintenance

The technical landscape remains in a constant state of evolution. New versions of web browsers like Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer continually jockey for position. New sizes of mobile devices continue to emerge ranging from plus to mini.  The same could be said for tablets, laptops, watches, and computer monitors. With each evolution, it is possible that your website no longer looks or works right and adjustments need to be made.

With all of the cyber security breaches, malware, ransomware, and malicious software being introduced via phishing and hacking, we have to constantly be on the lookout for security vulnerabilities, back doors, and loopholes that allow bad guys to penetrate our defenses and use our websites and devices for massive denial of service attacks. This takes constant monitoring, proactive updates, and security patches.

In addition to all these issues; design trends evolve so much that your sleek, modern website of yesterday no longer looks sleek and modern today.  Moreover, there might be enhancements you would like to make including usability and content grooming.

All these issues compel organizations to request maintenance updates and enhancements, which we are pleased and prepared to do.  We have a dedicated maintenance team that strives to run maintenance like a well-oiled machine.

Drupal Development

Drupal is both a content management framework and a development platform that helps accelerate web application development by leveraging pre-built, reusable, components, modules, and features.

Drupal reached its height in popularity in 2009 when WhiteHouse.gov was converted to Drupal and continues to enjoy enthusiastic support among thousands of developers and loyalists.

Since 2010, we have developed highly complex Drupal-powered web sites and apps for government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and commercial entities.

As powerful and capable as Drupal is, it does require ongoing maintenance and support to keep up with the evolving technical landscape, security vulnerabilities, and updates to the Drupal core and associated modules.  We continue to support Drupal because it powers over a million around the world. Our Drupal development, operations, and maintenance team is efficient, scalable, and effective.

We welcome new clients. Please contact us if you would like to discuss your Drupal project.

WordPress Design

WordPress is a fully featured, cost-effective, easy-to-use, content management system (CMS) and one of the most powerful tools for search engine optimization (SEO). It is a favorite tool among designers and bloggers because it is so easy to manage content and get found on search engines.

According to Google Trends, WordPress continues to be one of the most sought-after tools on the market for managing websites. In fact, WordPress powers over half the CMS-driven websites on the planet, according to BuiltWith Trends.

As WordPress enthusiasts, we understand WordPress from its core. We attend WordCamps and WordPress VIP events in order to be part of the community, stay up-to-date, and be ahead of the curve on future release plans. We can build complex WordPress plugins and themes while ensuring that they are usable and easy to understand and use on the back-end.

Since 2007, we have helped government agencies, nonprofit organizations, small businesses, and entrepreneurs design, develop, and deploy websites powered by WordPress. We can help you too.
