Soft Tech has built a solid reputation for providing certified professional and technical staff with a passion to solve problems and satisfy customers. Our teams use proven methodologies and cutting edge technologies to tailor solutions to fit our customers’ needs. While the scope and focus of our work evolves to meet client objectives, the quality never falters.
AGILE AND DEVOPS
Soft Tech provides thought leadership for Agile and DevOps innovation and implementation, partners with customers to build and maintain complex applications, and helps mature clients achieve the next level competencies. Our Agile DevOps team approach is simple, but effective:
• We engage end users, transforming them into part of our delivery team
• We schedule innovation time
• We measure success by the value of functionality delivered to production
• We leverage tested tools and frameworks—maximizing maintainability, scalability, and usability
• We enable our talent to grow and flourish
• We encourage full-stack engineering and DevOps
Our team provides ongoing production client support while adhering to Agile methodologies and values of iterative development, collaboration, and adaptability. As a result, users realize value earlier in the process, provide feedback more quickly, and acquire first-hand knowledge of the product. Soft Tech’s development teams:
• Prioritize and strategize releases
• Use Kanban, Scrum, SAFe, Microservices, Test-Driven Development and Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery
• Plan and execute sprint cycles, reviews, and retrospectives
• Conduct demos, beta tests, and pilots with real users
Our integrated DevOps approach brings operations and development engineers together throughout the systems development lifecycle. As a result, operations teams gain a solid understanding of both the overall solutions and the individual components, while development teams, brought into contact with day-to-day software operations, benefit from daily customer interaction—creating a powerful feedback loop. Integrating Soft Tech development teams with operations teams results in savings, mitigated risk, and shorter time-to-resolution.
