Application Development and Modernization can be hard and complex work and often difficult to align with business goals and objectives. Especially when Technologies as well as your goals and objectives are constantly changing. However, not doing this will usually be much more expensive and drag the company further behind where it wants to be.

Surround Technologies has been helping companies better understand where they are and how to get to where they need to be with well defined plans that incorporate both tactical needs and long term strategic goals and can be executed in a cost and time frame appropriate for the business. These plans are based on an agile phased approach to development and delivery so that they can be easily adapted as business needs and technologies change. Plan the work, work the plan, measure the progress, assess the process and modify where needed.

Strategic Planning

Drawing on decades of experience and 1,000's of successful development and modernization projects, Surround’s consulting team works with a client’s stakeholders to understand the business’s unique processes, IT environment, and end goals to determine a customer-specific best-fit approach to their applications.
