The first 100 days of 2022. What have we been up to?

What have we been up to?

 

2022 is well underway! I thought now was a good time to take a look back over the first 100 days of 2022 and recap on what’s been going on at Sandhata.

 

New Technical Frontiers

 

PopUp Mainframe logoEarlier this year we launched our new product company, PopUp Mainframe! PopUp Mainframe provides the capability to get a virtual mainframe up and running in only 2 hours, with absolutely no reliance on physical mainframe hardware. It is a game changer in the world of mainframe and we look forward to growing our PopUp team.

 

In April 2022, we launched our new API Platform. This is a really exciting milestone for us as we are now able to support our clients better by providing them with API services or a fully hosted API Platform.

 

January saw us sign a service agreement to provide employee services for Oracle across the Oracle stack.

 

We were very proud to achieve the milestone of over 100 consultants working at a single client. This is testament to our team’s excellence across many different technologies, and our client’s trust in us.

Sandhata Technologies Launches PopUp Mainframe

21st March 2022

The DevOps, Integration and digital transformation specialist, Sandhata Technologies, has launched its new product company, PopUp Mainframe.

 

PopUp Mainframe is a cutting-edge solution which finally removes the bottleneck of mainframe test environments by enabling clients to create mainframe environments on-demand, either on-prem or in the cloud.

 

Sandhata Technologies has taken the decision to separate its new product offering, PopUp Mainframe, from Sandhata’s services offering to ensure that PopUp’s software engineering team can focus fully on responding to client needs with the PopUp product roadmap. Sandhata Technologies will continue to offer its award winning consultancy services, specialising in innovative and enterprise-wide DevOps-centric service propositions.

Our culture…our secret sauce

 

At Sandhata we have always had a strong corporate culture. From our strong team spirit to our support of Manavata, our core values are felt in everything we do.

Since COVID, culture has become even more critical in ensuring a your workforce is cohesive and able to deliver high quality work for clients. Since work from home has taken off, work life now commonly invades personal life, so creating a positive work culture is vital for employee wellbeing as well.

We at Sandhata take lot of pride in creating a positive work culture. We promote openness, work-life balance and multicultural integration. These qualities make us a vibrant family.

Why is feedback fantastic?

So, you have a crack team delivering sterling work, who are highly skilled and hard working. But this team are not as productive as is hoped, and they frequently face production/service issues which take a lot of time to resolve. What gives?

Quite possibly, the team is delivering the wrong stuff (which does not improve the customer experience), or fire fighting issues blind because they don’t have the right information at the right time. Without regular feedback, projects can go off course, the wrong features can be built, and sometimes the wrong issue can be “fixed”!
