Auldenfire maintains a commitment to professional software development by emphasizing an architectural approach coupled with proactive customer service and a proven full life-cycle process. This includes a willingness to share the risks associated with software development with our customers through business practices including:
The logistics and communication issues surrounding large enterprise projects taking place on a global scale with distributed locations in multiple countries on multiple continents is a daunting challenge. In addition to the coordination problems presented by different time zones, language and cultural issues must be addressed as well. Auldenfire maintains an organic support organization to provide logistic and communication support to our teams worldwide. Our support and development teams are multinational, which better prepares them to deal with the challenges associated with global projects. Since 1983, Auldenfire has provided solutions to clients on six continents encompassing over 65 countries.
Auldenfire develops, markets, and supports a number of commercial software applications, which provides a real-world environment for our staff to learn the skills, methodologies, and IT business practices that are vital for success. This internal development environment allows Auldenfire developers and consultants to conduct research and development in a real-world setting. Auldenfire leverages organizational knowledge by rotating our staff through internal development and external development, integration, and consulting assignments. Most of these assignments are built around established teams to preserve team "gell" and cohesiveness. Auldenfire builds teams to build your future.
Auldenfire provides real-world expertise that is independent from both the client organization's politics and the vendor organization's product-based and service-based agendas. The knowledge of what needs to be done and how best to accomplish a given integration or development build reduces risk while maximizing return on investment.
Auldenfire maintains a close working relationship with vendors while avoiding a dependency (and commitment) on product sales. Many organizations rely on Auldenfire for independent product information, vendor management, and technical audits (architectural, project plan, and implementation assessments). Auldenfire maintains testing and development facilities to further assist in product evaluation. Auldenfire helps ensure that our clients are not overspending on information technology.
Economies of Scale
Auldenfire Group companies are currently focused on component-oriented development, which requires a strong architectural approach. The Auldenfire Atelier process provides a framework for the rapid implementation of complex solutions. This directly benefits development and integration projects by reducing the time and the number of people required. The reliance on rolling teams and the resulting retention of team experience and domain knowledge benefits following projects by leveraging economies of scale through artifact reuse, learning curve benefits, and having experienced a complete project life-cycle.
Auldenfire has taken a strategic decision to base our consultancy services around small "gelled" teams. Gelled teams save time and money since they already know how to work together, production work starts sooner, and experience has shown that a few gelled experts are more effective and efficient than larger development teams. Auldenfire has two categories of external consulting teams:
Auldenfire provides a team-based strategy that makes sense. Smaller teams are more effective in getting the job done, transferring knowledge to the client organization, and are easier to manage. Rolling teams provide a client organization access to highly skilled specialists when they are needed as they are needed. Auldenfire is committed to long-term strategic relationships with our clients - this means sharing the risk and offering rational solutions that address bottom-line issues (such as flat rate and team structured pricing).
