Solution Design
Are you tired of being asked, "So, what do you want?" and are thinking there must be a better way for the design team to understand what I want. At Protegra Software Studios we try not to use traditional interviews but rather leverage newer methods such as Innovation Games with a focus on Jobs-to-be-Done to capture your customer insights and then use Agile tools like User Story Maps to document these findings. This results in what we believe to be a truer representation of what the solution needs to do and then we can utilize our vast solution design experiences to architect and build the solution that best suits the needs of your company and your customers.
  
Product Software Development
Are you a company that is focused on your core business which is not software development and you have a need or want to provide a software enabled product to your customers? Protegra Software Studios can work with you to understand your customers' needs and utilize our core business of software development to bring your idea to life. Leveraging our experiences of building our own product based software we understand the difficulties and intricacies of balancing customer requests with maintaining a configurable solution.
  
Web & Enterprise Applications
The old kids on the block, web and enterprise applications, are still a necessity but that doesn't mean that they need to be architected and built using older methodologies and tools. At Protegra Software Studios we use Agile software development methods and state of the art technology products and tools to give life to your web and enterprise solutions.

We work alongside you and leverage customer insight and empathy, determine and build application features that are prioritized and estimated into rapid iterations by a team of developers, analysts and those people who will directly benefit from the software. At the end of each iteration, retrospectives are done by the team to review the software and the processes used to build it; which informs the scope, priority and expected schedule for the next iteration. We have learned that scope can vary as we learn and build more of the solution and the end solution in some cases can look much differently than initially thought, but this is all based on what you decide.
  
Application Modernization & Re-Platforming
Is your business growth being limited by technologies but you are unsure as to either what the plan should be to transform them into a more current technology or maybe you have selected a technology but have limited personnel to perform the transition. Protegra Software Studios has assisted many an organization through this predicament from assessing your current technologies and business solutions to selecting a future state and then not only building the roadmap from here to there but working side-by-side with those customers to design, install, build, test and implement the newer, modernized, re-platformed end-state.

As Protegra Software Studios has no affiliation to any specific technologies or application providers, we can focus on ensuring that we get the solution(s); both technical and business, that are right for your company.
  
Custom Portals
You've given them websites and mobile applications and now you have moved on to portals but maybe you're not even sure what a portal is supposed to do or how to go about creating one. Regardless, Protegra Software Studios can help you determine and understand the best way to bring your information together from all your differing sources into a convenient and standard medium. Your solution may need a variety of different portlets or a singular dashboard, but these will be determined by working with your business and technology experts to determine what a portal will mean and do for them and your customers.
  
Systems Integration
Protegra Software Studios believes that the best way to understand how your different systems and technologies need to communicate is to understand not only the technical and application requirements but also what your business needs \ wants to achieve through the integration. We work directly with your business people to determine what data they need, when they need it, how it needs to be presented and then utilize our vast experience to select the integration methods and technologies that are best suited to meet your requirements. These may range from rather unsophisticated overnight data transfers of text based files to more technically demanding real-time integration utilizing services such as SOAP, REST, RPC, COM+, etc...
