Just imagine the challenges you are facing as a CEO of a start-up company. You need to quickly develop a Minimum Viable Product and you only have two options. The first is to hire a CTO and a full development team with all kinds of practical and financial risks, not to mention the length of such an enterprise. How long you will have to wait in order to start developing an application, weeks, months…? You might end up spending a considerable amount of money upfront without a guaranteed outcome.
The second alternative is to outsource software development. Whit this traditional model you have to invest a lot time, up-front, as you have to define all requirements before starting the project. And not to mention that every time you need to change those requirements to meet your business needs, you end-up in long formal processes leading to unpredictable costs.
Within this system you build everything at once, based on fixed specifications. Therefore, you improve your business only once. Once the system is delivered it will gradually become unfit for your business. And is it really possible nowadays to define all the necessary functions at first?
But now there is an alternative, Pronobia, offering a new business model, imported from Japan, where all these challenges have been fully addressed. We are providing the development of your MVP, its operation and maintenance through a long-term relationship.
As your business evolves, we develop new functionality step by step and scale your application to meet your needs. We agree together on weekly objectives and develop software progressively and with full flexibility. We focus only the functionalities that truly add to your business growth.
In this model there is no need to define deadlines or lengthy formal software delivery processes since we are working on weekly agreements and we manage the development and operations. By doing so we save a lot of time and we work on a steady pace.
Building your future is not a sprint, it’s a marathon!
As an icing on the cake, we charge by results and not by working time.
Do not drain your entire budget in such activities
Within 2 weeks of the start of the project your app is deployed in a cloud development environment
After 3 months, your MVP is ready to use in both deployed in a cloud production environment
Above all, we keep developing, operating and updating your application after the launch in a cloud environment
Firstly, Pronobia long term relationship starts with our customers by sharing the vision and goals described in the business plan.
Secondly, our focus is on providing added-value. At the end of this period, as we have gathered enough details to design the application, we will release it to end-users.
This takes place generally about three months later
At the beginning of the project we start by developing software artifacts. The goal of the first two weeks of this period is to have the app on a production environment with bare minimum application features.
After that, we add features on a weekly development cycle. If the customer is satisfied with the artifacts developed we move to the next period.
Software development starts with a signed contract. Our customers and software engineers have weekly meetings. Most importantly, the design focuses only on the items agreed upon. Consequently, artifacts are tested on a weekly basis.
In conclusion, the launch of the app takes about 3 months after the trial period. In our business model, we do not promise to complete the software on a specific date.
Two weeks after the free trial we begin operating the test environment in the cloud and after three months we launch the app in a production environment.
Most importantly, we provide a common testing environment for all customers and dedicated production environment for every customer.
To sum up, we develop and operate continuously in parallel.
With minimal changes to your existing code we modernize your applications by rearchitecting and deployng the various components from “on-premises” environment to cloud environment.
In other words, you benefit from scaling your application. Furthermore, you will serve even more customers, faster, with tighter security and above all at a lower cost.
In conclusion, we operate the cloud environment for you. Pronobia takes care of corrective and evolutive maintenance to meet your business requirements.
There’s no management without measurement. Information is the last frontier of competitive differentiation.
We enable the exploration of historical data from many source systems through statistical analysis, quantitative analysis, data mining and predictive modeling. By doing so we empower individuals to identify trends and understand the information at hand. This, therefore, drive business change and support sustained successful business practices.
We are all senior software engineers with years of experience in international IT environments therefore with the highest levels of security and competence.
During these years we have developed a consultant mindset that lets us delve into the business context and closely manage our time, our users’ needs, and our client’s budget.
Therefore we write clean, logical and high-quality code using test-driven development and Agile practices.
We offer real innovative business model tailored specifically for agile software development specifically to embrace change from the outset.
Above all our deals are cost-effective as we keep our team size lean. We focus on weekly objectives and we do not develop useless functionalities. Pronobia development team build code from the ground-up in order to be maintainable, therefore cost maintenance is highly reduced.
Pronobia business model perfectly fits agile software development.
In the real world business needs are prone to change and are difficult to foresee. Therefore our goal is not to reach a delivery date fixed up-front.
We strive to support the business growth of our customers. By not doing certain activities we realize overwhelming cost savings.
Pronobia offers a business model based on a monthly subscription for custom software development and software operation.
We do not provide fixed-price contracts with comprehensive documentation of all the requirements.
Our experience is that the up-front prediction of all the requirements leads to a wide range of specifications leading to the development of useless functionalities.
