Check out each of the service areas below for more details.


Process Governance

As software becomes further embedded in the heart of your business, the stakes become higher when it comes to IT failures. Maintaining a firm grasp on how business and IT processes interact becomes increasingly difficult, and the risk of things falling through the cracks becomes a mission critical issue. Processes that worked fine for managing smaller in-house IT processes may not scale up to major new software acquisitions and system transformations. Failure to meet industry and legislative compliance requirements, such as data privacy laws and accessibility standards, can threaten the viability of your business as a whole.

KJR have a long track record in the process improvement and process governance space. We’ve made major contributions to the establishment of national and international industry standards, are routinely called upon to provide software quality process assurance for safety critical projects, and regularly provide practical process improvement training and consulting services and compliance checks.

Our experienced principal consultants can support you with:

  • Organisational software quality process improvement strategies
  • Agile and DevOps process adoption
  • Change management
  • Technical software risk assessments
  • Quality assurance audits for critical projects
  • Standards compliance and adoption support, including data privacy, WCAG 2.0, ISO 29119, or industry specific standards

Continuous Quality

Whichever end of the waterfall-agile spectrum you might be at in your organisation, one thing is common: software defects kill your productivity. Releases are delayed, reputations are damaged, profits, and sometimes lives, can be lost. Building a continuous quality process into your software development and IT management lifecycle can smooth out the wrinkles and roadblocks in your delivery pipeline, reducing costs, saving time and improving the quality of your end users' experience.

HELPING YOU BUILD

A resilient IT based business

Digital Transformation

The reality of digital disruption is that every business is becoming a software business. Existing enterprises scramble to adapt, while startups struggle to survive, and it’s hard to strike the balance. The robustness of a disciplined enterprise-scale software process doesn’t stop you becoming irrelevant. Failing fast may help you discover exactly what your customers really want, but velocity is no substitute for quality when customers expect your great idea to actually work.

KJR work with you to identify the key risks you’ll face with Digital Transformation, and help you to build a resilient IT-based business, where a culture of quality is the key to both speed and survival.

We can help you de-risk your Digital Transformation by:

  • Integrating automated Mobile App Testing into your Continuous Integration pipeline
  • Implementing metrics and monitoring to support UX/CX validation
  • Supporting customer focused A/B Test Design and Execution
  • Assuring your Big Data and Business Intelligence Quality
  • Supporting your Cloud Migration and Integration Quality

If you’re in the process of embracing mobile technology platforms, integrating Software as a Service into your legacy IT systems, or scaling up a fresh digital business, and you need to move fast without sacrificing quality, get in touch with us.
