How We Work

High Calibre People

345 consulting services are about practice, not theory. Harness real world experience.

345 Architecture Consultancy

Architecture

Architecture is a wide field. We know where our strengths lie. We have our niche.

Enterprise Architecture

Our Enterprise Architects help you get the big decisions right, and help you establish the appropriate governance. With deep experience in Financial Services, Pharmaceuticals, Retail and Distribution we have architects within 345 that have the depth of experience you need to help you solve your biggest technical challenges.

  • Technology Selection
  • Architecture Development, TOGAF
  • Security
  • Governance

Solution Architecture

Our Solution Architects help you develop solutions to meet your business needs. Our strength lies in the depth of experience our architects have. All 345 solution architects have 10+ years of programming and design behind them. They know how things work at a technical level.

We can explain a solution to senior management, avoiding jargon and excessive complication. We can explain a solution to developers so they know exactly how to implement their code. The ability to do this is rare. It is valuable.

  • Solution design
  • Scalability and performance
  • Security and hardening
  • Risk reduction, proof-of-concept (PoC) work
  • Project techncial oversight
  • Technical mentoring

DevOps

For us, DevOps means the following:

“Scripting the build, release and operation of software from the point a developer writes code, through deployment into Production, and throughout the operational lifecycle.”

You achieve quality through repeatability. You achieve repeatability through automation and by eliminating manual processes.

  • Continuous Integration (CI)
  • Continuous Delivery (CD)
  • Test Automation
  • Infrastructure Provisioning
  • Automating Operations

We believe successful DevOps is a mindset. Technology and skills help, yet we need the correct mindset to succeed. We believe that solving a technical problem means fixing root causes, changing code and scripts, continually improving. We repeat this cycle until it works.

Successful DevOps is about consistency, continual improvement and a commitment to the result. For us, it’s the foundation of agile software delivery.

Agile

Agile development isn’t just hype, it is a truly transformative approach to development that has been proven over the past two decades.

Since this is the case, why do organisations still find it hard to embrace agile development? It’s because talking about agile is easy, making it work requires discipline, effort and consistency.

At 345 we have learned to rely less on agile-by-numbers, and instead concentrate on the practices and habits that underpin agile success.

  • Architecture, Technical Foundations
  • Source Management
  • DevOps, CI, CD
  • Team Rhythm
  • Backlog and Task Management
  • Test Automation

When the foundations and practices are in place, the main question you have is, “What do we work on next?” When you get here, you’re agile.
