Design – Build – Operate
This project-based engagement model suits clients who need a partner that can take an idea from it’s starting point right through to an enterprise-grade fully formed software product or platform. Starting with a series of design workshops, we swiftly identify the use cases, user experience, architecture and provide our client with a detailed, fully costed proposal to suit their budget and timescale. We keep in constant touch with our client during the Agile development cycle, bring the product live, and thereafter maintaining the system in production (typically operating a cloud environment).
This engagement model works great for companies which have an ongoing stream of development work over an extended period of time. It is an ideal way to extend development capacity in a low-risk manner and often enables our clients to focus their core team on strategic transformation whilst the Keeper Managed Service team drills into backlog items (typically small changes initially). This is a fixed price model with strong governance, reporting and knowledge management.
Over the past few years we have relocated over 50 software engineers from overseas locations to work on assignment in Ireland – often our consultants work onsite with some of the world’s largest multinationals, or with Ireland’s largest banks, telcos and corporates. We also have an excellent team of high-performance developers working for clients in Ireland remotely from Eastern Europe.
One thing we find in common with all our clients is that they need to transform their businesses using technology. We have a depth of expertise in the challenges faced by CTOs tasked with delivering on digital transformation. Often our initial conversations on this topic lead to carefully designed service solutions that enable our clients take control of their futures.
