We employ senior developers with deep experience in custom software development, system integration, business intelligence, infrastructure design, information technology operations, and mission-critical cloud computing. We practice Lean, Agile and Rugged methodologies, which eliminate inefficiencies in systems design and operations processes.
Analysis/Discovery Sessions – This engagement provides customers with access to two or more solution architects to review the business and technical plan for your project. We provide our customers with documented user stories, estimates for development, architecture recommendations, hosting options and DevOps considerations, which gives them a detailed understanding of what it will take to build their application. The Discovery Session also frequently offers our customers an opportunity to explore new business and technology ideas they had not previously considered. more
Custom Software Development – Technology innovation is a must for companies looking for a competitive edge in a business environment where change is the only constant. However, while technological advancements have enabled companies to operate more efficiently and effectively, they’ve often made it more difficult to stay current. CabForward has the experience and expertise to help you overcome these challenges through custom Rugged software that is scalable, maintainable, and defensible. more
Velocity Boost – Some customers need help augmenting their team with Senior Level Developer talent. This can be driven by a need to meet critical milestones or deadlines, an inability to find full-time skilled resources, or to compensate for the loss of a key team member. Our team has experience working in many industry verticals and across a diverse range of technology architectures, which helps them quickly ramp up and provide immediate value. When we don’t have the talent that you need, we go out and get it. We like to say, “Fast Forward with CabForward!” more
DevOps – DevOps is a process of collaboration and communication between software developers and IT professionals to efficiently produce software products and services. Companies need operations delivered in a shared resource model that is cost effective. CabForward recognizes the challenges many companies face in their lack of DevOps experience, so we offer expert service in this area. CabForward’s Rugged approach to test driven application development, continuous deployment and operations meets this need. more
Open Source Software Consulting – CabForward promotes the use of Open Source Software to help relieve our customers from the long-term financial burden of proprietary software, the exorbitant cost of mandatory virus protection, support charges, vendor-required upgrade expenses, and mandatory terms. Open Source Software is the product of thousands of developers worldwide improving the quality, security and stability of the source code. CabForward can quickly and efficiently modify existing Open Source code to provide the functionality our customers need with the reliability they expect. more
Web and Mobile App Support Services
Most software development shops don’t support their own products after release. That leaves the new product owner in a precarious situation. Digital Support is one of the ways CabForward℠ stands out from the crowd. CabForward℠ provides support solutions for software built by us, as well as apps built by other development firms. We want to be your strategic technology partner for the long term. more
Project management is one of the greatest challenges for the customer as well as the Strategic Technology Partner selected to do the development. We have experimented with several business tools and processes, and are happy to share some of our findings to date.
We can also share that engaging with customers before you have your processes in place can cause you to lose them, because they see you as ill-prepared, and perceive you as unprofessional. It happened to us in our startup phase here in Austin. more
Collaboration is key to the way we like to operate, and inherent in that is good, clear, focused communication. We like for our clients to be able to see exactly where we are in the development process at any given moment, and we want to be able to track their thoughts and instructions.
What is your project? Staff augmentation? Discovery Session? Product build? Code review, or rescue a project? We can help! From the initial concept, Discovery process, architectural design, development, publication and release, and ongoing support plans, we can provide you with exactly the right combination of services to create your perfect fit.
