What is technical digital strategy?
How is technical digital strategy valuable to my business?
Our unique approach
What you get
This is typically completed as a diagnosis to a specific symptom—maybe your site is really slow, or some bug is making it malfunction in a random way. Code audits identify what it will take to stabilize your code and improve the performance of your site. The goal here isn’t to rewrite your code; it’s to identify what needs to be rewritten so we can get it stable enough to be promoted and live.
If we decide to move forward together, we’ll take over ownership of your code. We’ll build it into our systems and set you up for automated deployments. We’ll do any necessary cleanup, upgrades, etc., to get you prepared for new features and initiatives.
We’ll work with you to gather requirements and establish your goals for a new software platform. We’ll identify the top contenders and have them self-score against a custom rubric. We’ll validate those scores blindly, to eliminate bias, and have the top vendors pitch to you. From there, we’ll consider their scores, your scores, and ours in our recommendations for the right platform. For PIM, CMS, and ecommerce, we can also create a proof of concept to validate that the customizations touted by each software vendor can actually be realized. This approach lets you make an investment based on proven facts, not empty promises.
Typically part of a larger research engagement, we conduct audits of your internal systems and processes. This process mitigates risk for your organization and can help you determine which investments to make first to achieve the best ROI for your top customers. Additionally, technical audits can identify opportunities to gain efficiency within your tech stack and supporting processes.
For most of our clients, we conduct cloud readiness analysis. We assess performance, efficiency, and load times throughout the US and abroad. What is the setup of your current hosting environment? Do you need a load balancer or a CDN? We can guide you regardless of where you’re hosted and, when it makes sense for your business, we can transition you to Azure.
