Cosmic-I focuses on advising your business on how best to use information technology to meet your business objectives. In addition to providing advice, we often implement, deploy, and administer IT systems on your businesses’ behalf.
Cosmic-I provides project management expertise on a wide variety of projects, and on many different scales. We work with projects ranging from small projects consisting of one or two person teams all the way up to formal project management processes following project management best practices. These types of projects typically utilize project managers who hold their PMP certification, a project management certification from the Project Management Institute.
If you find yourself with a development team losing their direction and motivation on a project, Cosmic-I can help. We can provide development Tech Leads who can refocus and direct your development teams at a more hands on level than most project managers can. Our development team leadership services can also be useful in making technical development and design decisions.
Cosmic-Is’ architecture services incorporate both technical and software architecture. Technical architecture services can include network design for LAN/WAN environments, security measures, server implementations, etc. Software architecture services allow Cosmic-I to architect a software system specifically designed to fit into your IT environment.
Business Process Analysis
Cosmic-I can provide business analysis and business process review services as part of your project and requirements definition efforts. Analysts from DDA Solutions can delve into your current business processes and create efficiencies to help streamline these processes as part of the software requirements.
Cosmic-I can assist in defining your system requirements, both business and technical requirements, to a level where no ambiguity or confusion can exist. This is extremely important for a traceable software design, or if you are releasing a requirements definition for 3rd party vendors to use for estimating your development costs.
Software design is the most important phase of the software project. Cosmic-I uses a UML software design methodology. UML (Unified Modeling Language) is a standards based process for software design, and uses industry best practices. Our software designs are typically object oriented, so our design documentation includes use cases, class and interaction diagrams, entity relationship diagrams, etc. Our designs are traceable to the requirements involved.
Cosmic-I can provide software developers and programmers at hourly rates to supplement your development team where certain skills sets are required, be it with a particular programming style (object oriented, procedural, etc.), or with a specific language or development tool set. Cosmic-I has a wide range of programming language competencies from the very old to the latest and greatest.
Implementation and Testing
Cosmic-I offers formal implementation and testing services on all of our software projects. These activities are carefully planned and documented as step by step procedures. Clients sign off on these testing and implementation procedures before any software is implemented into a production environment.
Cosmic-I offers database administration services to customers who may have databases or database applications that are underperforming and in need of repair. DDA Solutions can also consult with your existing database administrator to assist with performance tuning, normalization, archiving, or other database services.
