Secure and scalable
Our customers expect their systems to be flexible, accessible 24/7 from anywhere and secure by default. Balancing these expectations against each organisation’s unique working context lies at the heart of OpenCredo’s approach to developing application architecture. We have successfully delivered secure, scalable solutions in some of the most challenging industries, including Finance, Retail, Logistics, FinTech and Telecommunications.
We have deep expertise in building systems rooted in the elastic world of the cloud. We approach the building and running of applications in a way which aims to fully exploit the advantages of the cloud computing delivery model. Whilst Containers and orchestration frameworks like Kubernetes and OpenShift are key competency areas for us, experience has taught us that a truly cohesive and maintainable solution needs more than just these basic building blocks, you’ve got to look at the broader picture!
Given the speed with which software frameworks, tools and techniques are changing, it is crucial that architectural choices allow for future evolution whilst still delivering against core principles. Based on our experience with a broad range of organisations, we can help you understand the best options for long-term evolution of your software platforms.
Our consultants have deep hands-on experience working with a variety of architectures, styles and approaches including message and event driven architectures, as well as real time stream processing. As your trusted partner, we can help to avoid common pitfalls with these complex systems, and guide you towards the right choices which will benefit you now and in the future. We are often engaged for:
- Microservices: A core approach used to simplify the application surface and reduce the risk of change. This allows our clients to rapidly evolve their architecture and drive business agility.
- Serverless: An emerging approach which we are seeing great promise in for massively simplifying operations and enabling the rapid delivery of business logic. It is still however lacking established and well-defined patterns, so ensuring appropriate supporting structures and considerations are addressed is key to overall success
Optimising for long term success
We strongly believe that a focus on quality is essential to delivery. We build on solid foundational processes – continuous integration & testing, infrastructure-as-code and security automation to ensure that our deliverables are suitable to provide continuous, rapid delivery. Likewise with complex, modern architectures it is important to build-in robustness and observability to lighten the burden on operations and ensure they have usable tools to help them manage ongoing service.
