SOFTWARE, CLOUD AND MOBILITY

What Sets OBXtek Apart

While OBXtek has strategic partnerships with technology vendors like AWS, Microsoft and Oracle, we remain technology agnostic when it comes to solving our client's problems. Each environment is unique with its own challenges.

We provide an established but flexible CMMI Level 3 accredited approach to develop forward leaning, cost effective and secure applications. We work closely with our clients to develop a deep understanding of the current and target states and how to best solve problems using the latest system and software development methodologies, technologies and risk management processes.

Whether it is designing and implementing the Department of Transportation's first Contractor Owned Contractor Operated Cloud hosting environment, consolidating nearly 100 websites and migrating to a custom developed enterprise portal for the USDA or performing usability testing and analysis for the VA's National PTSD website, OBXtek delivers.

Our Expertise

Enterprise Agility Solutions

OBXtek draws from the entire spectrum of practices and frameworks, including the SAFe framework for managing a portfolio of agile programs and projects. Our experienced Agilists practice Systems Thinking and Lean Engineering, and bring the business, development and operations people to the same table to act as a tripartite coalition from the very start of systems development, thereby overcoming silo mentality, enabling Continuous Integration/ Continuous Delivery, which derives value across the entire ecosystem of the enterprise.

Mobile App Development & Mobile Device Management

OBXtek's latest foray is in the Mobile App Development domain. Close to 80% mobile applications are deleted after first use, while at the same time mobile device based information delivery and transactions are the future. This therefore creates a totally different Design, Usability, & Operational paradigm that must be heeded too. OBXtek's experts can help you go mobile with engaging and high retention apps.

Our toolkit consists of the Microsoft Xamarin ecosystem, PhoneGap, AirWatch (for MDM), Node.js, and a whole host of JavaScript libraries.

OBXtek has reoriented towards the Mobile-First paradigm, with an established UIUX capability set that focuses on responsive design, Web2.0, browser based application processing, and dashboarding.

Our Usability Engineering practice focuses on Human Psychology and Persona studies, and subscribes to all contemporary industry stipulations in this domain. We've developed a robust accessibility engineering practice around Section 508 Compliance as specified by the Federal Government, and compliance to W3C Web Accessibility Initiative standards. 

 

IV & V Services

Our Independent Verification & Validation Services are based on the IEEE Std. 1012 – 2004 – Standard for Software Verification and Validation. 

Our Verification process is an in-process activity performed concurrently with software development throughout its different phases. In other words, it is an assessment of whether we are building the product right. 

Our Validation services are user oriented and are typically performed after the software is developed, to determine if the software correctly implements the requirements. It helps answer the question, “did we build the right product?”

We can help you significantly reduce Risks and save on Software Lifecycle costs through our IV&V Services.
