Information Technology

From strategy to execution.

These days, it seems everyone is migrating their applications to mobile, connected devices, and even wearables. While we applaud that, we think it’s not enough. The real challenge is to build apps for these new platforms that will delight and engage your customers.

The challenge.

The mobile revolution has radically altered user expectations. Today, if users don’t love your app, they’re not going to use it. Period. Which, of course, would render the effort invested in developing the app fruitless.

Given that the bar is so high, there’s no point just going through the motions. Your team has to aim to knock the ball out of the park every time. Of course, it’s one thing to intend that, but to actually do that, your team may need to become highly proficient in a variety of new and unfamiliar disciplines. And there’s a real risk of losing some key benefits of traditional approaches as part of that transition.

The solution.

Unfortunately, the problem is often easier to articulate than the solution. And even when an adequate solution has been defined, it will still require high quality execution to achieve successful results.

About Objects has assisted enterprises and small and medium businesses in solving exactly these kinds of problems for years. We’ve helped our customers succeed at that from the smallest to the largest scales across multiple platforms. We can help your team select the right technology stack, navigate potential pitfalls, and maximize potential benefits.

How we can help.

About Objects can provide a temporary supplement to your team's current skills and knowledge to bridge the gap. We bring to bear extensive experience developing solutions that require the integration of multiple platforms to form a seamless product.

As a company with training in its DNA, we have a strong focus on the transfer of knowledge and skills. So if your organization has a goal of elevating its practices, we can help by both doing and teaching. Here are some of the services we can provide:

  • A rapid but thorough assessment of your organization’s current practices to identify areas of highest risk
  • Classroom training conducted by our experts
  • Onsite mentoring from our senior architects and engineers
  • Co-development, with an emphasis on knowledge transfer
  • Offsite component or product development, supplemented by training and/or mentoring on the deliverables

Our practitioners are great at mentoring — as well as executing — across the entire spectrum. So while we’re happy to build a complete product or platform for you, we’d much prefer to build it with your team. Our goal is not only to help you get your product to the finish line — though obviously that’s important. Our overarching goal is to leave your team stronger and more capable than we found it.

The About Objects difference.

Our work on mobile, cloud, and other emerging technology platforms includes years of mobile development experience. So although much of the work we perform is at the macro level — architecture, development process and methodology, enterprise and cloud integration, test strategies, and the like — we’re also intimately familiar with the wide array of low-level details that go into the design and engineering of, for example, a truly polished iPad app.

The upshot is that we’re well positioned to help your team avoid common engineering, design, and usability mistakes, while showing them how to take best advantage of the capabilities of a given platform. At the same time, we’ll also help with the bigger picture items in terms of integration with new and existing enterprise technology solutions.

In sum…

We’d love to talk with you about how we might be able to contribute to your current and future development efforts.
