What is Bespoke Azure Development?

Microsoft Azure is one of the world’s leading cloud providers and helps hundreds of thousands of companies around the world to become more agile and to grow.

Intelligent Decisioning is a Microsoft Partner with many years of experience in helping customers to take advantage of the Azure cloud platform. We can help your organisation become more agile and unlock your business’s full potential with Microsoft Azure and custom line of business solutions. Intelligent Decisioning and Microsoft Azure are a perfect partnership to help you gain the value and benefits that an optimised and tailored cloud environment can bring.

Our in-house team includes Azure architects and enthusiastic developers who use the latest technologies to build and host software that works anywhere, anytime. Whether it be a custom SharePoint solution or something completely standalone, we have the skills to build it for you.

Running a completely custom system doesn’t have to mean owning and maintaining more hardware. Thanks to Microsoft Azure, your solution can be hosted in a secure, stable infrastructure; you pay for as much as you use. Need more computing power or storage? Add more resource to your hosting plan and the additional capacity is instantly available.

Thanks to the latest versions of Office 365 and Microsoft SharePoint, your custom solution can be secured and accessed via your existing Office 365 identities, meaning no more usernames and passwords for your users to try and remember. Add to this the ability to use all of the data you have stored in Office 365, Azure and SharePoint, such as your e-mail, calendars and files stored in OneDrive for Business.

Software Development Lifecycle

We ensure the full Software Development Lifecycle is followed throughout the build of your solution, utilising separate Development and QA environments, Code Reviews, Systems Testing and UI Testing to ensure that your solution is as stable and reliable as possible.

Secure Development

Intelligent Decisioning are ISO 27001 accredited and as such we have shown that we adhere to a secure development lifecycle and use automated build processes to test our code against the documented OWASP application security risks

Agile Scrumban

We believe the best way to deliver software is through an Agile approach to software development. Experience has shown us that the Waterfall approach to software development rarely gives success in complex projects.

What does Agile mean?

Agile software development is a group of software development methods based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organising, cross-functional teams.

It promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery, a time-boxed iterative approach, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change. It is a conceptual framework that promotes foreseen interactions throughout the development cycle.

We believe it’s the most effective way for us to work collaboratively with our customers to deliver the software they need with the most effective use of resources.

  • Light, flexible, low overhead development
  • Empirical: learn from experience
  • Inspect and Adapt: Requirements will change as software matures. Agile captures this through the Show & Tells

What does SCRUM mean?

Scrum is an iterative and incremental agile software development method for managing software projects and product or application development. Scrum focuses on project management institutions where it is difficult to plan ahead. It represents an approach for planning and managing projects and bringing decision-making authority to the level of operation.

How does this help you?

Agile Scrum has a number of benefits over and above the typical Waterfall approach. These are as follows:

  • Delivers business value all the time
  • Light, flexible and provides low overhead development
  • Full visibility – Show & Tells allow you to see the software as it evolves
  • Development adapts to changed requirements
