Unlock the power of Cloud and leverage its unique value: speed of innovation, security at scale, and reliability
In today’s world when you need to move quickly with your company digitalization, Cloud-based applications development delivers software quicker, makes more efficient use of the resources you have, and most importantly it operates with your business value in mind.
Conternization, microservices, and DevOps are not just buzzwords you hear every time the topic of Cloud native pops us. They have the ability to truly transform the way you were building your business and developing software.
Spending much time and effort on launching your application in different environments and taking into account different infrastructure features used to be a massive problem that would complicate the process of software development. Containerization and orchestration make the job much easier. While microservices enable new services integration. And finally, with DevOps practices you can manage software development lifecycle and the routine work.
After the core product requirements are established, it’s time to take care of non-functional requirements in order to design optimal cloud application architecture that is capable to support MVP and future states.
At this stage Symphony performs additional application assessments appropriate for business needs:
After we have product and non-functional requirements ready, and before going into cloud software development which entails sufficient investments, we often start with a prototyping phase. Since the new application is going to fulfil some logic that wasn’t in use before – some hypothesis can be made. Prototype will help you to test it and thus give the knowledge crucial for the future product.
Three goals are reached at this phase:
When we reach this stage, we have enough knowledge about the future product: functional and non-functional requirements, as well as knowledge about our engineering capabilities and which business features can be realized. Having this knowledge, we can estimate in details the ongoing scope. Based on estimations, dependency evaluations and business criticality – features delivery can be prioritized. And Delivery Roadmap can be built.
Delivery Plan. Define resource plan, on-/offshore locations, and costs to deliver

This stage involves building Cloud Infrastructure as defined in architecture design. It is essential for development needs and future application production purposes and follow best practice patterns, such as common shared services for logging, monitoring and security.
In order to speed development cycles, save costs, win valuable time, reduce human mistakes, and provide modern and flexible tools for new business features development and release, we are focusing on Routine Automation and establishing CI/CD/CT process.
Test Automation Integration into the Release pipelines (Continuous Testing)
More about DevOps service
Development of the product itself. We use Scrum / Scaled Agile Framework to efficiently deliver features, following the roadmap but keeping in mind business value maximizing.
After the first releases to production, the following processes are built in order to ensure application availability, security, scalability and performance according to architecture design:
Maintenance. Perform regular rituals such as testing of backups and disaster recovery works
