Our Services

Thoughtful, engaged delivery

Our clients require agility, curiosity, and active participation from their technology partners. We're engaged by interesting challenges and the opportunity to flex our creative muscles.

We help our clients understand how to design and apply effective UX, robust architecture, and targeted data analytics, or what we call “interact, transact, and extract”. We consider how each of these influences the overall value generated by the solution, helping our clients to unearth opportunities they may not have contemplated.

We offer starter packages to help our clients begin to explore value-generating opportunities without breaking the bank. These customizable packages represent what 1–2 people can confidently accomplish in 2–3 weeks.

Software Security and CI/CD Assessment

What It Is

With the proliferation of cloud native environments, API-driven architectures, containers, and microservices, application security has taken on a new dimension. In fact, conventional application security protocols are unable to keep pace with the progress in DevOps and software architecture. Are your security policies and tests being applied consistently to every build? Are your artifact and release repositories vulnerable to intrusion of malicious code? An independent assessment on your DevOps practice, CI/CID pipelines and tools will evaluate your custom application’s security stance, compliance and vulnerabilities.

  • Eliminate vulnerabilities early in the development cycle
  • Maintain consistency in build quality and security stance
  • Expose DevOps and security risks together in contextual settings
  • Drive continuous automation

What You Get

1-week in-depth DevSecOps Assessment

  • Assessment led by security and DevOps experts
  • In-depth reports on risks and vulnerabilities
  • Assess release, artifact and other repositories
  • Analyze pipeline and its components (e.g. triggers, tools, etc.)
  • Automated testing assessment
  • DevOps improvement recommendations
  • Assessment report


  • CAD $15K for a time-boxed one-week DevSecOp assessment

Pricing Options

Time & Materials

We can price engagements based on time and materials. A clear problem definition, high-level estimate, iterative delivery, and professional project management means you know each hour is being applied effectively.

Fixed Price

A fixed price based engagement may be suitable based on our shared understanding of the use cases required to address your specific business challenge. We move quickly to provide a ballpark quote once we have some details, and use our Discovery process to increase the accuracy of the quote in advance of signing the development contract. Scope may be variable (tuned continuously to the overall budget) or fixed (with a CR process supporting scope changes).

Team member leads group discussion

We wear many tools on our belt.

Because we're not aligned with any one technology, we're not constrained by inappropriate choices. We mix and match, mash up, and inter-operate, and if we can't find the right technology for you, we build it custom. We operate this way because this is what a custom solution requires.

This underpins our service delivery, and provides forward momentum for the joint team.
