Case Studies: On Internet Time

Your Profile

You are an established vendor, with time tested software assets. You have gotten software development to a predictable process. You have what was an innovative software solution and demand on your software and for your services continues to be strong. You have a good and dedicated team that has served you well over many years. Your team is accustomed to your software practices, and has paced themself around your typical software release cycle of more than a year.

Your Problem

The demand on your software or service is showing signs of saturation. The Internet has the promise of slashing your operational costs, including shipping & handling, maintenance & support, and possibly increasing your margin. More importantly to you, you do not want some VC-funded new kid on the block to establish himself or herself as a competitor who is using some new "buzzword" technology. To you, Java, Enterprise Java Beans (EJB), XML, Middleware, Java Servlets, Java Server Pages (JSPs), Multi-tier architecture, and distributed computing environments have the promise of either working in your hand, or in the hand of your competitors.

Unfortunately, these are not the tools your team is accustomed to. The team is more at home with C, C++, FORTRAN, and COBOL. Just as important to you is the fact that your team is accustomed to a much longer release cycle than what is needed to deliver on "Internet Time!"

Our Solution

Expertise: ShouldersCorp is not your ordinary system integrator. After all, 40% of our engineers have postgraduate degrees that complement a long track record in object oriented programming development and management experience, and a much longer track record of software development in general. The company founders were there at the very beginning of the OO revolution, almost 20 years ago.

Whether it's Java, RDBMS, EJBs, JSPs, XML, Servlets, Middleware, Multi-tier systems, or distributed computing solutions, members of the Shoulders team have "been there and done that" and delivered "on spec, on time and on budget!"

Approach: Our technical hands-on managers, along with our highly qualified architects, will engage your architects and project managers to discuss the similarities and differences between typical software development and Internet-based development. Our "Secrets Seminar", taught by our most senior personnel, can augment this effort.

As you begin to understand and define the scope of the project, with the help of our project managers and architects, you can engage our experienced software designers and developers to complement your team. This will give your team a head start in the latest cutting edge Internet technologies. In partnership with ShouldersCorp, you can be assured that you have an A-team built around success.
