Are you looking for the Next Big Thing, that game-changer for your company? I certainly am, and I'm fairly sure that many of you are, too. That does seem to be the goal for companies regardless of size or industry.

In order to succeed as a company, you must continue to offer whatever products or services you currently have, treat customers right and diligently search for that next advantage. More often these days, that advantage involves technology of some sort, which is great for you CIOs and CTOs out there. But while you're off looking for the Next Big Thing, you can't take your eyes off the day-to-day responsibilities of your job, monitoring and maintaining systems, developing new applications and supporting the business.

Helping our clients overcome bottlenecks and maximize opportunities is the core mission at Pyramid Consulting. We've grouped our solutions into four broad offerings: enterprise, product, QA and mobile solutions.

Enterprise solutions help leverage your assets

Pyramid Consulting's Application services can help your company hurdle the bottleneck of inertia, with development, integration, support and modernization services. Enterprise application integration and web services can help your internal and external systems, applications, operating systems and platforms speak a common language so you can fully leverage your business assets.

Fully leveraging those assets is more than getting them to speak; the information must be actionable. A strong business intelligence and data analytics function can help you unearth the Next Big Thing. QA and testing subject systems and applications to real-world pressures, finding defects before your customers do.

Product solutions give you a leg up

Product development lifecycles keep getting shorter and more complex, leaving many technology departments struggling to keep up. A rich solution ecosystem can help you plan and execute a flexible, product-focused business strategy that builds on your core competencies. Leveraging our help for Sustenance engineering can expertly help you manage the day-to-day maintenance, support and modernization of existing software, freeing your staff to think up or develop the Next Big Thing.

Proper testing and validation are crucial components of a successful product launch but one that many companies overlook or believe can be handled by existing staff. Testing and validation require specialized skills you may not have internally. Migrating and modernization can extend the useful life of legacy systems while integrating yesterday's information to tomorrow's portals. The concepts of value engineering can be applied to create efficiency in software development. You don't have to remake the wheel with each product.

Don't do it alone with mobile solutions

Mobile is all the rage, but is it a fit for your company? You need to develop a mobile strategy to make that determination, then guide development efforts so you don't get stuck. Enterprise mobility solutions can help you turn enterprise assets into useful mobile tools that are both secure and useful.

Mobile apps must work the first time or users will flee (or turn to competitors). It doesn't matter whether the apps are pulling information from the cloud or your legacy systems, performance is everything. But with so many operating systems, development platforms and device types out there, you must know where to begin. Because of all this complexity, don't forget Mobile testing is a critical piece of the puzzle so users have a great experience, and you get repeat business.

QA testing touches and supports everything you do

Think of QA testing as the foundation for your technology efforts. Whether building apps, linking systems, pushing data to the cloud or monitoring your many technology environments, you want to make sure your environments and products are speedy, secure and compliant. Prebuilt frameworks can help you move with speed and accuracy. Depending on your industry, you may have specialized compliance mandates that constantly change.

Whatever technology you have, you need or are considering, you're likely not spending enough on QA – it's that important. In fact, you may not find the Next Big Thing without it.
