Integration is in our DNA.

Sandhata is Sanscrit for Integration, which is a deeply embedded concept in our service portfolio.

We understand the various integration barriers and how they are limiting the growth and performance for many businesses, particularly in the world of banking compliance. This is why we have specialised in helping our clients overcome those barriers for more than ten years.

By running large SOA and EAI programmes, we help businesses to evolve, grow and adapt to the changing market requirements. Whether migrating payments systems to new platforms or creating cloudbursting microservices, we supply specialists across the entire spectrum – from Innovation to Programme Delivery.

Our Integration Consultancy Service is your key to unlocking your Digital First Integration Strategy. We enable you to leverage existing legacy while simultaneously automating and industrialising your future Integration strategy.

 

How does it work?
Working with Sandhata is a genuine partnership. We understand the importance of careful planning and meeting the demands of stakeholders across the organisation.

We take a holistic approach to Integration programmes. In order for delivery to be successful, it’s critical to ensure all the key business needs are met, through careful planning of how to deliver on a low-cost, ongoing basis.

 

This is where our analytical approach comes into its own. Using dashboards and KPIs, all business demands are tracked and optimised across the Programme lifecycle. Our highly experienced Programme and Project Managers understand the commercial as well as the technical Integration challenges and will work with you to address them. In our model, Production Support is considered in the design phase, rather than becoming an expensive afterthought at the end of the SDLC.

Test Management

Testing is a critical part of getting maximum return from any integration strategy. How well does your test strategy stack up?

In order to test Integration effectively, your business needs a well-constructed Test strategy. This must cover both functional and non-functional testing, providing you with full coverage across the SDLC. This way, you can make changes quickly without risking your production systems.

 

How does it work?
Here at Sandhata, our Test Managers are highly specialised in managing Agile Testing for Integration Programmes. By using the Sandhata Middleware Development Lifecycle, we have access to an evolving integration process that offers the flexibility to deliver agile testing to rapidly meet the needs of the business.

 

If needed, we can manage the build and execution of test automation frameworks evolving all the way to full Continuous Delivery. Our Test mangers are also highly skilled in implementing Service Virtulisation in conjunction with Test Automation, which means we shift testing left and avoid expensive, long test cycles by reducing project burn rates and limiting expensive Infrastructure.

The Sandhata Integration Technical Consultancy is our service platform for introducing tailored, best-of-breed Integration systems and processes into your organisation.

Our multi-skilled consultancy team consists of Project Managers, Architects, Development Managers, Infrastructure Specialists, Developers, Testers, and Production Support staff. Their core focus is to balance delivery and innovation, under the watchful guidance of our management consultants.

Infrastructure

How do you minimise operating costs and risks to the business, while also running new applications and platforms that integrate with legacy technology?

Application
Architecture & Development

When architecting, managing and developing middleware, it’s critical to meet the immediate needs of the business while maintaining capability for future scale.

Test
Automation

A solid Test Automation process facilitates the quick and accurate testing of changes across your middleware – avoiding catastrophic outages that the smallest change can bring.

Production
Support

Many Production Support issues are entirely preventable. How do you ensure a support-driven focus throughout the development process?

Infrastructure

How do you minimise operating costs and risks to the business, while also running new applications and platforms that integrate with legacy technology?

This is one of the biggest challenges of infrastructure provisioning and management – and one of the most difficult to address. Infrastructure is the single most important factor in ensuring your organisation’s IT operations are fit for purpose and scalable. We can help you simplify and automate your infrastructure provision and management, which helps to drive innovation throughout your business.

Whether you’re using traditional technology or starting a container strategy – in an on-premise, cloud or hybrid model – our experienced consultancy team can support you in provisioning systems, automating and simplifying tasks. This in turn makes scaling easy and cost-effective.

 

How does it work?
When it comes to delivering and managing infrastructure, our experience is one secret ingredient we are happy to reveal. Our consultants are technologists who have seen it all before. By building and maintaining Infrastructure supporting trillions of pounds’ worth of payments with dedicated 99.999% availability, we know what excellence looks like.

As reliability is crucial, we implement off-the-shelf utilities alongside our own in order to measure the capacity and performance across multiple geographical regions in real time. Based on your unique business needs, this will allow you to make clear investment choices over time.

 

We genuinely appreciate the challenges our clients face in managing and provisioning hardware, and we know how to meet them. Having specialised in automation, with Infrastructure and Environments as part of the Continuous Delivery roadmap long before the term DevOps was used, we have a proud heritage of client success that speaks for itself.

Our aim is to get your organisation to the point where it is delivering change, either through enablement or in a direct partnership with us. Thanks to our engineering approach to Integration practices, we can help to industrialise your Integration, which normalises change at low cost and low risk.

Application Architecture and Development

When architecting, managing and developing middleware, it’s critical to meet the immediate needs of the business while maintaining capability for future scale and change.

Many consultancy services systematically deliver archaic SOAs at the expense of delivery for the client. We take a reverse approach, which is why we are frequently brought in to replace or complement existing providers who are unable to meet the demands of the business.

 

How does it work?
Here at Sandhata, we adopt a tightly managed Agile methodology, which enables us to identify issues much earlier in the design phase. Our skilled Integration Managers can provide expert knowledge across all disciplines of integration, and have a wide experience of middleware technologies and practices.

capture

The Key to delivering consistently is using The Sandhata Middleware Development Lifecycle (SMDLC). This is the bridging methodology we use to integrate systems, processes and data to future-proof existing systems and turn the handle on Delivery. This reduces the occurrence of production incidents.

 

The SMDLC is designed to incorporate future changes seamlessly as your business diversifies and grows, which extends current systems, reduces total cost of ownership and shortens delivery times.

Test Automation

A solid Test Automation process facilitates the quick and accurate testing of changes across your middleware – avoiding catastrophic outages that the smallest change can bring.

Using Test Automation across the SDLC is the only way to have a true, enterprise-wide Integration strategy. Here at Sandhata, we have pioneered the Performance Test Automation of middleware applications, enabling organisations to run early and smart performance testing.

 

How does it work?
We believe that Test Automation requires a unique approach. We deploy our most experienced Integration consultants to perform the testing of Integration components and systems that are critical for rapid and effective Agile delivery.

 

Our consultants follow The Sandhata Middleware Development Lifecycle (SMDLC), our evolving integration process, which gives us the flexibility to deliver Agile testing that meets the needs of the business quickly. This enables us to build Test Automation frameworks and use Service Virtulisation at the design phase, so we can shift testing left – and avoid expensive, long test cycles.

Production Support

Many Production Support issues are entirely preventable. How do you ensure a support-driven focus throughout the development process?

Our approach is to engage Production Support consultants as early as possible in the SDLC, throughout the design and development phases. This means that specific considerations for Production Support become a natural part of the sprint storyboard, rather than an expensive afterthought.

 

How does it work?
Here at Sandhata, we don’t consider Production Support to be an entry-level consultancy position. It is however a function that helps to engineer, automate and monitor both deployment and remedy actions, to avoid any nasty surprises for the business down the line. After all, prevention is better than a cure.

 

Our expert consultants can support the Infrastructure, Application and System layers while also providing business transaction support. With the help of dashboard analytics, they can give early warning of business failure in order to minimise any disruption or actual outages.
