ObjectSharp: building cloud-first digital transformation
ObjectSharp consists of a team of senior software development professionals and industry-leading experts.
These individuals are the backbone of the company’s proposition, bringing tactical experience of implementing sophisticated and innovative real-world solutions.
ObjectSharp partners with companies to provide innovative business solutions that deliver a cloud-first digital transformation.
To do so, it focuses closely on embedding itself in its partner’s business and remains dedicated to improving people, processes and products.
Such an approach means that ObjectSharp works with customers from the ideation and design phase, through embedded Agile and CI/CD automation and cloud-first, serverless architecture, and on to DevOps, microservice orchestration and automated testing.
Unlike other consultancies, the company’s team of experts achieve this through a close and technology-driven relationship.
The aim of this isn’t to simply deliver technology and close a project. Rather, ObjectSharp believes in the fostering of innovation within its partner company so as to deliver true value both to the business and its end users.
Building software the right way
ObjectSharp works with companies and organisations with an ambition to lead their sector through the innovative use and deployment of software.
The company’s range of services covers:
- Product ideation and business analysis
- User experience and design
- Embedded Agile and leadership coaching
- Cloud-first and serverless app development
- CI/CD, DevOps and microservices orchestration
- Automated QA testing
- Governance and monitoring
With regards to cloud, ObjectSharp is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner - and a recognised leader - in Microsoft Azure cloud.
There are several advantages to a cloud-first software delivery, says ObjectSharp. Accordingly, the company works with its partners to leverage the benefits of automation and scalability that a cloud environment offers.
The company offers enterprise cloud onboarding, for example. This delivers a pragmatic and proven approach to scalable cloud adoption, that enables businesses to see value from the very early stages of their cloud adoption journey.
Similarly, ObjectSharp has a proven approach to software as a service transformation. This includes the building of a specific roadmap that takes into account all key architectural, security and operational factors.
For those companies moving to Azure DevOps, ObjectSharp uses Microsoft’s Cloud Collaboration Environment for Development Teams.
This allows organisations to streamline operations, free up IT resources and budget and gain access to the latest innovative technologies.
Naturally, ObjectSharp works with industry leading and globally recognised names to deploy mission-critical cloud software that works at scale and ensures a successful digital transformation journey.
This includes Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP).
The Canadian defined benefit pension plan, which is tailored to the healthcare sector, has recently reached the end of a sweeping three-year IT strategy based one a cloud-first approach, the adoption of Agile working methods and a flattening of the IT team structure.
The delivery of the strategy, as SVP Information Technology & Facilities Services, Reno Bugiardini recently told FinTech magazine, has been a huge success and further aligned the company’s IT team with the broader organisational strategy.
Driving Federal IT Transformation
Dell Technologies and the U.S. Air Force have a longstanding partnership. On several programs of record, Dell Technologies supports mission-oriented areas, including providing data-centric applications for platforms that the Air Force leverages in testing and operations. For example, certain high-performance jet fighters rely on Dell Technologies software that helps provide critical information about aircraft performance to the service and the aircraft manufacturer. After a test flight, data modules gathered from the aircraft’s sensors are downloaded, processed and analyzed to provide critical insights.
The Air Force has also made a concerted effort to drive technology to the edge so that warfighters can gain value from their data where it lives. Dell Technologies is enabling dynamic decision-making at the edge, where collection, management, analysis, and the distribution of data is critical. Dell Technologies’ software factories are supporting some of the largest Air Force programs, like Kessel Run and Kobayashi Maru.
Kobayashi Maru is a cloud-based program designed to modernize the way the Air Force (now the U.S. Space Force) interacts with its allies. By the time Kobayashi Maru was a program, the service had a year or two of experience with the highly successful Kessel Run. According to the Air Force, this continuous user-centered approach enabled warfighters to quickly evaluate software improvements, provide direct feedback to Kessel Run developers, and rapidly iterate the software to provide maximum value and impact. Kobayashi Maru operates under the same principle: the existing software procurement process is too slow to satisfy requirements, so leverage best practices and partner with industry (in this case, Dell Technologies) to get new systems into the field as quickly as possible.
The U.S. Air Force is committed to IT modernization, as exemplified by its ability to embrace change and transformation in how critical systems are procured and deployed. And Dell Technologies is committed to supporting the Air Force in its endeavors, so the service will always be ready for what’s next.
