Technology

Over the last 15 years, SMG Design has evolved to ensure we are always offering services that are relevant. Our most recent work has been focused on optimising distributed workforces and ensuring existing development teams have the tools and processes available to deliver projects efficiently and with clear communication every step of the way.

Whether it’s a new software department looking for best practices or an existing team that needs some fresh ideas; we can guarantee that our tried and tested development/automation techniques will provide the level of output required for any project.

Agile coaching, Automation engineering and Cloud adoption specialists are ready to help

Priding ourselves on our in-depth knowledge of all new technologies; we can help you decide which platforms, solutions or licences are the right ones if any for your specific needs.

We get to know the ins and outs of your company. While we have guaranteed a certain set of approaches for all development tasks; our main aim is efficiency in a way that works for you. Any solutions we provide focus on working in harmony with existing techniques and practices. Bringing the best out of an existing process that is well-known yields far quicker results than learning a new system.

As Cloud Computing experts, we have implemented solutions using:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Google Cloud Platform
  • Digital Ocean
  • Rackspace

We have extensive knowledge of the containerisation process involved to create rapidly scalable, microservices and the intricacies involved to build and maintain a fully-functioning ecosystem. This knowledge allows us to recommend and guide teams in using the right solution. Microservices can be hard, it is not something to build without careful consideration.

Our current approach to handling microservices-based platforms is to create:

  • Docker containers
  • Kubernetes or Docker Swarm maintained instances
  • Availability monitoring through Istio with Kubernetes and where possible Dynatrace
