SAN DIEGO, CA – August 14, 2009 – Monkela, LLC expands its software architecture assessment services to include software architecture design. After recently launching with software development team assessment services, Monkela recognizes that the most urgent need at many companies is in assessing and designing the architecture of the software they are developing.
Many aspects of a software product can be corrected later if they are not done in the most optimal way the first time. This is in fact part of the "release early, release often" mantra when doing agile development. However certain architectural decisions have far-reaching consequences that can be prohibitively expensive to undo. For this reason, a solid investment during the architectural design phase of a software development project can pay for itself many times over.
According to founder, Jacob Joel, "We have found this to be one of the biggest concerns on the minds of software executives. They understand the implications of a misstep. And trusting a team that hasn't been through it before not to make a misstep on such a fundamental level really moves the organization into a riskier position than most executives are willing to tolerate."
It is in mitigating this risk that Monkela offers software development executives real value. By bringing in seasoned architects and developers, Monkela is able to identify the key factors relevant to the project, organize these factors into a coherent set and present a clear picture of the risk associated with each factor.
Because of the tremendous value in clarifying the architecture of a software development project, Monkela goes further and provides software architectural design services. Even though architectural design has always been part of the assessment, calling the design service out explicitly helps customers understand the greater value they receive knowing that the deliverables from the engagement can be used to launch their development efforts.
As with their software development team assessment services, Monkela takes a thorough, systematic approach to the architecture assessment so that companies know in advance what the engagement will look like, with clear actionable recommendations delivered as part of the engagement.
Monkela, LLC is a privately held company located in Vista, California which provides architecture and software development team assessment and design services to national and global software development organizations. Monkela helps senior executives assess what they have in their software development teams and the architectures they produce, and identify the changes (both tactical and strategic) needed to achieve results in line with the company's vision.
