LONDON, January 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Sogeti combines its development and testing experience with a combination of onshore and offshore resources to deliver a new cost-effective agile approach to delivery
Sogeti UK, a leading provider of professional technology services specializing in application and infrastructure management, software testing, and high-tech engineering, today announces the availability of a new technology service; Rapid Engineering With Agile Rightshore® Delivery (REWARD) is Sogeti UK's innovative approach to rapid application development that is designed to deliver new applications and services quickly, while saving on costs, without impacting the quality of projects.
Designed by experts at Sogeti UK, REWARD is based on a unique fixed-price delivery model that combines agile development with a balanced onshore and offshore team to ensure close client contact and cost effective development.
The development of this service comes as a response to deliver greater flexibility to UK clients, outside of the usual formal change control processes which add cost, complexity and time to projects. REWARD is highly responsive to customer and user needs as it offers customers the ability to implement and enable agile development internally, better manage development costs and accelerate projects.
Drawing on experience across many platforms, applications and devices, as well as partnerships with industry-leading technology vendors, this service offers a new approach to deliver high-quality complex projects, on time and on budget.
With over 1000 skilled software engineers, all with extensive experience of Java, .NET and other programming languages as well as vast expertise in leading technologies, Sogeti's new REWARD service seamlessly integrates with existing agile testing services, providing clients with a complete agile approach across their delivery processes.
Jamie Browning, Software Development Manager at Catlin comments: "Major strategic projects take the focus of our current resources, but we find that demand for smaller bespoke development is increasing. The Sogeti REWARD service allows us to increase the level of delivery of additional projects by using their rapid agile application development service. As an end-to-end solution it takes you through analysis of requirements, development of the product, to testing and post-release support. Being able to work with an extended team of high performing individuals, means that I can preserve the standards and processes that are needed for us to support delivered applications in the future. It means I do not have to compromise on quality in order to deliver the best service possible to my customers. It also means I can offer an increased level of capability to my customers by taking advantage of the scale that Sogeti provides."
Mervyn Jackson, Director of Application Development and New Technologies of Sogeti UK, concluded: "We're delighted that Sogeti's range of services is growing from strength to strength. Being able to deliver high quality agile development has added a new service line which complements our already established testing services, and offers our clients a unique solution. We are really excited about REWARD's potential and it's fantastic to see key clients, like Catlin, already reaping the benefits."

Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessi...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
