Software Delivery Assessment & Strategy
Whether you have a new software delivery system or one that has been running in your environment for a decade or more, an independent assessment and strategic roadmap gives you the objective information and prioritized recommendations for future investments in the people, process, and tools that facilitate getting your software solutions to your business users and customers.
RAEC is holistic in its approach to assessment and strategy using a wide variety of tools and techniques directly applicable to Software Process Improvement (SPI). Although technology plays a large part in software delivery, we look at areas such as cost management, human resources, and vendor risk — balancing objective and subjective findings with no preconceived outcomes. Strategic recommendations range from how you can advance your personnel to meet enterprise demands to concretely defining system operational scope.
Assessment & Strategy
Tool Chains & Integration
Software Delivery Tool Chains & Integration
From integrating Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) systems with Service Management Systems, to upgrading and migrating compilers, interpreters, and grammar parsers with complete regression testing and coverage metrics, RAEC has developed methods and techniques that cuts through the uncertainty and gets your teams focused on delivering business value.
Integrations can be simplified by purchasing all of your software delivery systems from a single vendor, but it is unusual for this to be the case, especially when taking a “best of breed” approach to system acquisition. Our clients have a mix of software from large vendors and open source projects. We take on the most difficult integration projects across vendor and open source systems, operationalizing the integrations to limit ongoing maintenance costs and mitigate operational risk.
Tool chain maintenance can derail a team from their core focus for weeks if not longer. Rushing the process can leave you with lingering questions about coverage and uncertainty, and can open the door for incidents, regressions, and quizzical bugs that can be frustrating to your team members who have a long list of enhancements to get out the door. We get you ahead of the curve, and can deliver long term maintenance planning that gives you clear guidance on the road ahead.
Software Delivery Process & Systems
Choosing the next generation software delivery platform, aim to optimize, enhance, and evangelize existing system or bring in completely new platform? RAEC can deliver on implementing business objectives with teaming approaches through comprehensive project delivery, blended teams, or project leadership. Our practitioners live and breathe software delivery process and systems, and have well-rounded skills for effectively working with people in a wide variety of roles.
From version control to software deployment to change management, we deliver on your expected outcomes in areas of system design, installation, upgrades, customization, and transition to daily operations. Our service delivery staff monitors project delivery along the way, keeping track of key milestones and pro-actively works with your project sponsors to manage issues and mitigate risks that may surface along the way.
Our independent and objective perspective on technical implementation and vendor technologies gives our clients a refreshing experience. Although we deliver services with our pros who have deep knowledge and experience in specific vendor and open source implementations of a technology, we won’t “take sides” and are able to bring together technologies from a wide variety of vendors.

- VENDOR CERTIFICATION TRAINING DELIVERY
- OPEN SOURCE TRAINING DELIVERY
- CUSTOMIZED TRAINING DEVELOPMENT
There’s vendor training, and then there’s RAEC technology immersion. When practitioners train for certifications, we don’t just take the vendor’s training content verbatim. Through advanced scenarios and lab materials, ramp up sheets, and information pathways we cut through large, complex topics while making sure we hit every category so candidates ready set to pass certifications and meet job requirements.
Our experienced trainers have the depth of knowledge in the topics and advanced lab experiences that would provide candidates with much more than just reading a book. Our technical trainers have established unique delivery approaches, yet passionate about working with individual needs based on individual candidate’s technical skill, learning style, and experience. Having small to medium class sizes enhance one on one time between trainers and individual candidates who are new to the technology or are looking to take their skills in the topic to the next level.
Open Source practitioners can spend all day tramping through newsgroups, wikis, and anecdotal posts on the technical “expert” sites, or know the tool or system well enough to identify solutions. Our solution focus open source training specifically aiming for systems both end-user and administrative perspectives, paves the way from searching web engines for solutions to knowing exactly what to do.
Our approach is to get your feet wet with the technology, and then deep dive into interesting features that you may have never considered as options before. Our custom labs are constructed to teach how first the mechanics, and then how to problem solve — giving you that “oh now I see!” moment of clarity that we all enjoy to have.
If you don’t see a technology listed that you would like us to deliver using our approach to learning, let us know!
Have you developed a new system or customized a vendor solution requiring broad, enterprise grade rollout to your organization? Or, you’re a software vendor looking to have compelling, professionally developed training for your software? Look no further. We have developed a series of techniques, delivery methods, design styles, and content taxonomies that make what you want to communicate shine.
End users can become bored and disillusioned by trudging through endless documents and slide decks. In effect, all the work you put into delivering the best possible solution for your organization gets released with much disdain, and at best a whimper. If your organization or customers want high impact training that leaves your practitioners wanting to use your solution, look to us. Our training designs target several training formats — such as instructor-led, virtual, and self-paced to name a few — that are modeled for easy customization based on your unique requirements.
