An agile methodology has been shown in many cases to deliver improved speed of development and quality of software.
But many organisations that want to adopt agile delivery methods don’t know where to start. Staff are trained in formal (“waterfall”) development methodologies, and there is not enough knowledge in-house to make the transition to agile
Our expert software lifecycle personnel are dedicated to increasing application lifecycle efficiency and we provide mentoring and training in agile delivery including:
- Agile project management
- Agile development
- Agile testing
We also have over a decade of experience with specific agile methods:
- Extreme programming (XP)
We can provide formal testing training courses or longer term solutions like embedded consultants, to mentor your development teams and help you increase the speed and efficiency of your application lifecycles.
Our clients include large public sector bodies (we helped the Office for National Statistics configure agile lifecycle management tool Rational Team Concert to match their workflows) and private sector organisations, which you can read more about here.

In an agile workflow changes to source code should be deployed and tested early and often – as soon as there is a working component you try it out straight away. After working with Automation Consultants all the developer had to do was click a button and wait 20 minutes to register the changes to the advertising platform.
Malcolm Reid, head of product development, Sky IQ
