Enterprise systems are like living organisms. They require constant care in order to maintain healthy and positive growth. Take shortcuts and they will misbehave. Neglect them and they exhibit health problems and become brittle. And eventually, like all organisms, systems reach an age where problems surface naturally.
At Metronome, we take a holistic approach to analyzing enterprise systems, and recommend the best options for restoring or modernizing capability through our mature practices in Design, Data, DevOps, and Software Development.
Metronome retains world-class designers that use trusted methods for defining a user experience that is seamless and simple for end users.
In the Product Definition phase, our designers conduct stakeholder interviews, value mapping, and mockups to derive requirements and must-have’s for the systems in question.
As part of the Product Research phase, we perform end user interviews and research alternatives for how the design systems will be created. In the Analysis phase, our designers create user personas, user stories, and storyboarding for identifying and documenting the likely uses of the system by end users.
In the Design phase, sketches, wireframes, prototyping, and design specification and systems are created to share with stakeholders and end users and map traversal through the user interface.
Once the product is ready for use, we perform the final phase of Validation, where the system is tested by performing user testing sessions, gathering analytics, and conducting surveys for users of the system.
A core component to resilient systems is the ability to shift nimbly with the whims of end users and adapt to industry changes. Trying to do this without automated deployments is like building a plane while you’re flying it.
At Metronome, we use Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and Configuration as Code (CaC) to ensure seamless setup of any enterprise software stack. We are well versed in provisioning industry standard architectural patterns like serverless, service mesh, and container orchestration using industry leading tools like Istio, Lambda, and Kubernetes. We automate and secure deployments to hosting environments by building custom Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines with build, test, integration, security scanning, and deployment tooling.
Metronome distinguishes itself from other software development companies through its hire-centric culture. Our emphasis is on hiring experienced staff who can solve complex tech problems and have a culture fit.
Our engineers have contributed to many Software Factories, applied R&D across Government and Commercial and are always prepared to solve customer problems with the right technology.
We help modernize legacy technology stacks, greenfield new ones, and take on tasks that others have deemed impossible.
Data is at the heart of what makes systems valuable, but you often find it locked away in enterprise systems with no way of unleashing the value it holds. Metronome specializes in unlocking that data and building data platforms that are best suited for each custom use case.
You have a large number of distributed data stores of different data storage types and need a Data Fabric.
You have an extensive number of data silos owned by different groups that need to be combined into a Data Mesh using Open API standards.
You just need to access your data in some sort of unified way.
