Our teams create, maintain and manage applications that effectively support business functions, evolving along with the requirements.

These services cover the complete application lifecycle: from analysis of business requirements to development to user acceptance, as well as the maintenance and enhancement of existing applications (Third Party Application Maintenance).

Whether it is about the creation of new applications, or the management of existing ones, we use our pragmatic methodologies to stay close to our clients’ stakeholders. It ensures that applications continue to deliver business value over their complete lifecycle.

Our services :

  • Relationship Management: we liaise with the business owners and the users to make sure that the development and maintenance teams have a good understanding of what needs to be delivered. 
  • Business Analysis: we take care of helping you express your requirements, as completely and exhaustively as possible, so that the development teams fully understand what needs to be produced. 
  • Development: we carry out all the activities that lead from the business requirements up to the availability of an application that can be presented to users.
  • Transfer to Production: finalized and tested applications are integrated into your architecture. User Acceptance tests are done and the application is deployed.
