A US based fintech startup
Leveraging our extensive experience in outsourced product development across verticals, we enabled the client to quickly bootstrap their idea—from concept to minimum viable product—to help attract further funding and get to the market quickly. Time-to- market was minimized using our global agile delivery model. Using a judicious mix of onshore and offshore development teams, investment was maximized helping each dollar deliver more. The “startup culture” was matched in terms of speed and agility of services provided and yet IT related risks were controlled using the industry best practices. The client was delivered:
UX services (such as user surveys, mockup trials etc.) to ensure that user-experience is “baked into” the product from the start and not added on later Technology consulting, including helping integrate with the right technology partners / service providers to help build the solution faster Quality control at all times right up to production
We delivered single Configuration Management Database (CMDB) for application changes with automated sync between version control and environments. Increased collaboration and communication between Dev, Test, Infra, and Ops led to predictable and frequent releases, and reduced time-to-market from weekly to daily and on-demand.
