Delivery

Reliable, predictable delivery is key to a successful project (whether an in-house team or external consultants like ourselves).

To ensure success we agree, week-by-week with technical and business stakeholders:

  • What we are going to do.
  • Why we are doing it.
  • How we are going to determine whether it is successful.
  • Who is going to be responsible for what at endjin, and at the client.

Then, at the end of each week we prepare an update video:

  • What we did.
  • Why we did it.
  • How we did it.
  • Whether it was successful.
  • Recommendations for the next week.

The endjin delivery process

We work in weekly iterations, delivering code and specifications, documents and design assets directly into your source control and cloud environments. You'll work directly with one of our principal endjineers, but every project benefits from the skills and experience of our entire team.

If you're looking to take advantage of the cloud, or optimise your existing investment, we can help.

Security & Compliance

Security & Compliance

£25k / workshop

£15k - £25k / team / week

Risk management strategies require multiple layers of protection that limit the pathways that could result in a data loss or breach.

Endjin have worked with some of the largest companies in the world to create a security model and data privacy architecture for the Microsoft Cloud, which we subject to external audit by both clients and independent third party security consultants.

Leveraging Microsoft's impressive array of Azure certifications, and using technologies such as Key Vault and SQL Server Always Encrypted, we help you to employ the latest data encryption, replication and monitoring, ensure rigid access controls, auditing and application configuration, and provide a clear segregation of duties, roles and responsibilities within the organisation.

Azure IaaS Migration

Azure IaaS Migration

£5k - £15k / workshop

£15k - £25k / team / week

The fastest way to start to take advantage of the cloud is to migrate existing infrastructure to Azure in a "hybrid" model which connects your existing estate to the cloud, using technology like ExpressRoute and Azure Active Directory.

We help you to size your data and workloads and evaluate your existing infrastructure, and map it onto the networking, storage and compute services in Azure.

You can immediately take advantage of features like "infrastructure as configuration", VM scale sets, and global failover; this saves money, increases reliability and reduces management overhead.

We then use our library of reusable ARM templates to acclerate the process of getting the infrastructure up and running with a PoC, and enable your team to take the services to production quickly and securely.

Data Production Pipelines

Data Production Pipelines

£5k - £15k / workshop

£15k - £25k / team / week

The modern business is data-driven. From mapping and reduction, to privacy concerns like the masking of personally identifiable information, data ingestion, transformation, and enrichment are at the core of your solution.

At the heart of Azure's data processing story is Azure Data Factory, a production-ready service for orchestrating, monitoring, and managing your ingestion, transformation and validation processes that can connect to a wide range of your on-premises and cloud data sources.

Using our library of intellectual property, we can help you to stand up a pipeline with a set of repeatable, automated activities, configurable by the business. That might be using Machine Learning models to make predictions, calling an HDInsight step to process your big data sources, or bursting out to Azure Batch for any custom processing.

Azure PaaS Adoption

Azure PaaS Adoption

£5k - £15k / workshop

£15k - £25k / team / week

With green field projects, or as you develop your cloud infrastructure, it becomes possible to take advantage of more sophisticated PaaS offerings within Azure, increasing capability, performance, scalability and further reducing management overheads.

We can help you to evolve your solution architecture to reflect a modern, distributed cloud solution, and navigate the bewildering array of technologies available to pick the ones with the right performance, cost and security profile for your system.

We can then bring our library of products, intellectual property and experience to bear, to accelerate development with a PoC or full build, upskilling your developers and ops teams on the characteristics of the new solution.

Big Compute & Big Data

Big Compute & Big Data

£5k - £15k / workshop

£15k - £25k / team / week

What do you do when you have scaled your compute intensive workloads to the biggest box that your hardware vendor can supply, but your application is still going to exceed your SLA? Or you've got a fantastic idea for a solution, but it depends on petabytes of data? Or both?

Endjin have deep experience of building solutions at hyper-scale, and we can help you to understand and re-architect your workload to enable execution to be distributed across many different machines. Using technology like Azure Batch, HDInsight and Azure Data Lake, you can scale to hundreds of thousands of cores and petabytes of storage.

We can then help you visualize that process using tools like Power BI; and automate reporting, operations and end-user billing.

IoT & Devices

IoT & Devices

£5k - £15k / workshop

£15k - £25k / team / week

People often think of "IoT" as something to do with the maker community, or "smart trousers" - but when you're dealing with 10 million set-top-boxes, 100 thousand vending machines or a global fleet of vehicles, the challenges become significant.

Using technology like Azure Event Hubs, Azure Data Factory and Cortana Intelligence Suite, Endjin can help you design an end-to-end data ingestion, processing and insight pipeline that turns a firehose of telemetry into a source of business value.

With our production-proven intellectual property, we can accelerate the PoC and build process, coordinating with your device engineers to manage a combined hardware and software development programme.
