EMC provides the combination of industry, technology, and multi-platform expertise that is critical to successfully developing software applications.
Our approach uses service-oriented architecture principles, agile development processes, and the appropriate combination of on-shore and offshore resources to ensure the success of your project.
We can develop a new application, enhance an existing one, or migrate to a new platform. Our approach ensures the application is tailored to your specific needs and operates with your current systems. Our user experience experts and information architects ensure usability is a key part of every application.
At the completion of the project, we train your users and support personnel and provide the information that enables you to take charge of the application.
EMC delivers applications designed for your specific needs. Our Assured Performance (AP) delivery methodology ensures predictable outcomes, minimizes risk, and delivers results on time and on budget. AP ensures that when global delivery teams employ off-shore resources, they are properly structured and coordinated.
EMC Consulting takes an innovative approach to process automation and integration. Our service-oriented architecture means we create collections of services that can be easily reconfigured and reused in different scenarios as the needs of your organization change.
Our delivery model includes services to:
- Identify and analyze the processes to be automated.
- Organize, optimize, and model the process steps.
- Select the most appropriate software platform.
- Automate multi-step business processes.
- Implement monitoring capabilities that track and analyze the processes.
- Train users of the new system.
Upon project completion, you will be able to coordinate interactions across systems, people, and trading partners—reliably and securely. You can configure, track, and analyze processes, and gain immediate, actionable business insight.
Agile Development is a formal approach that minimizes risk and enables projects to adapt to changes more quickly. Agile Development incorporates frequent inspection, team work, and accountability.
Changing an organization that has relied on traditional waterfall development to an agile one can be daunting. An experienced coach can help bridge the gap. EMC Consulting helps clients create agile development organizations through assessment, training, and coaching.
During the assessment phase, EMC Consulting explores your environment, identifies key issues, and makes recommendations. Our training and coaching suites quickly bring a whole team to the level where they can start Agile Development. Our suites include:
- Agile Estimating and Planning
- Certified ScrumMaster
- Certified Scrum Product Owner
- User Stories for Agile Requirements
- Five-day boot camp for an entire Scrum team
EMC consultants are experts in service-oriented architecture (SOA). We create a business architecture that treats applications as assets to be leveraged. Integration is accomplished by gradually migrating to an SOA without abandoning existing applications.
We first identify the business functions already fulfilled by existing applications. We then define service interfaces for these functions. Legacy business logic is then "wrapped" with these service interfaces, making it easy and cost-effective to integrate them across applications and into new applications such as enterprise portals.
EMC’s approach protects your existing investments in hardware, data, and applications. It enables you to retain the skills and experience already acquired. And it provides the flexibility to create agile business processes that can rapidly adapt to business changes.
Heterogeneous platforms, scattered applications, and legacy systems present significant cost and risk drivers for enterprises. “Point solutions” are not the answer. EMC Consulting can help you save money and reduce compliance risk by consolidating systems and transitioning platforms.
We can help you optimize your IT systems by migrating your platforms to the latest software releases. We are experts at consolidating and migrating a variety of systems and applications, including:
- EMC Documentum
- Novel GroupWise
- Lotus Notes
- McLaren Software
Our certified Microsoft consultants can also help you migrate from:
- Separate messaging, fax, and voice systems to a unified communications system
- Disconnected file servers to an enterprise collaboration system using Microsoft SharePoint
- Earlier releases to the latest versions of the Microsoft software suite
