Agile Engineering is certainly not a new concept and DevOps is growing in popularity, so how should organizations think about incorporating these techniques into their environment? The first item to consider is culture. Implementing Agile & DevOps is all about changing the culture of an organization. In some cases, organizations may not be ready to embrace the change-that is just a fact. If you are uncertain as to whether or not your organization is ready-either for Agile Transformation or DevOps, we recommend conducting a maturity assessment to baseline your capabilities. This assessment will provide a foundation that you can then build your execution plan against to achieve iterative successes, while transforming the underlying culture.
Your organization can certainly implement Agile Engineering without DevOps, but definitely can’t implement DevOps without Agile Engineering. Unissant provides services in both areas of discipline to provide the most flexibility to our clients. We also work with leading Agile & DevOps platform vendors so that we can provide end-to-end integrated solutions for our clients.
Unissant delivers not only Agile Development & Engineering Services to our clients, but we also focus on Agile Transformation. We work with organizations that have a desire to embrace Agile practices, but are still developing using a waterfall methodology. We focus on not only identifying the right projects to leverage Agile, but also providing assistance in deploying the right skills, tools & processes to be successful. We work hand-in-hand with our clients to ensure their success.

The world is getting increasingly digital every day, and this is driving organizations to digitize business processes and models. However, the process of digitization is challenging and complex. Even those who have already undertaken a plethora of digital transformation initiatives have to focus on multiple facets to stay on top of their game. In order to keep competition at bay, businesses have to guarantee customer satisfaction, acquire customer loyalty with value added services, boost revenue and profit figures, and use technological disruptions to their advantage.
With extensive experience in understanding and transforming the digital space, Unissant is the right choice for organizations embarking on a digital transformation journey. Regardless of the current stage of your transformation journey, we have the required knowledge, processes, expertise and technology to help you accelerate towards being a digital enterprise.
Driven by accurate insights about customers as well as internal processes. On one hand, it involves using data to gain customer insights through big data analytics, and using these insights to drive personalization and loyalty management. On the other hand, it involves streamlining operational processes, optimizing supply chain and inventory through predictive forecasting and management techniques, and having the right set of processes and infrastructure. While agile processes govern the way the organization moves, the underlying platform is cutting-edge and cost-effective through usage of cloud technologies, mobility and software defined networking techniques.
Unissant’s management consulting solutions provide valuable, independent advisory services to technology teams across all of our market verticals. We advise our clients on issues of strategy, process, technology, and operating design and execution.
Successful program and project management takes strong leadership skills and experience from people and teams that have succeeded in taking projects to completion regardless of the situation. A set of strong processes and tools also helps the project manager and project team to succeed.
Unissant is a CMMI level-3 certified company that places a holistic, company-wide approach and emphasis on top quality project management and solution delivery practices. This emphasis on quality and thoroughness starts with project initiation and continues through the entire project life-cycle. Our software delivery approach, however, is not one size fits all. Our approach contains a tailoring mechanism that takes into account risk, budget, and timelines in determining the appropriate level of controls and quality assurance, while simultaneously making these decisions transparent to stakeholders. This sets expectations appropriately, keeps parties informed, and promotes a collaborative partnering spirit from project outset.
Our project and program managers are schooled in Project Management Institute (PMI) best practices and are comfortable following the Unissant project delivery methodology and artifact library, or can easily adopt our client methodologies. They utilize proven experience and methodologies to deliver IT solutions that meet the business technology needs of our clients. Our Project Managers understand the value of building partnerships with our clients and fostering collaboration and cooperation between sponsor and stakeholders groups. This is accomplished through various communication techniques that aim to keep all parties informed and that drive to consensus and buy-in as rapidly as possible. Finally, our Project Managers understand the typical risks that change initiatives and system delivery projects tend to have, and they possess a set of experienced-based mitigation techniques that can reduce the probability and severity of those risks. They also have the resources to reach back into the Unissant team of executives and other PM’s to gather ideas and suggestions, when needed. When you work with a Unissant project team, you are hiring the entire Unissant company and the set of institutional knowledge and experience that we hold.

Every Unissant consultant is immersed in our solution delivery framework process from Day One. First, our people undergo rigorous training to learn our methodology and practice areas, with deep dives into their particular skill and assignment domains. Second, each project receives rigorous oversight to ensure that all of our teams consistently apply and leverage our time-tested processes, tools, and techniques. Finally, our consultants provide feedback and content in a cycle of continuous improvement and learning. As a result, our methodologies and best practices are fresh, relevant, and complete.
Unissant has three primary solution areas:
Our frameworks span each of these practice areas with our deepest, most expansive content within the Information Management domain. These practice area frameworks use our standard “D4” approach: Discover, Design, Develop, and Deploy, and cover topics such as Business Intelligence, Data Warehousing, Data Governance, Data Quality, and Data Management. We have developed operating models, policies, and processes that are proven, repeatable, and scalable.
In addition, our certification as a CMMI DEV 1.2 Maturity Level 3 company further demonstrates our commitment to consistent, quality software delivery practices.
