At Scalable Designs, we've seen what works and what doesn't in development. It is important to note that effectiveness of a certain methodology is dependent on the particular development team. This can be dictated by culture, skill-level and other factors.
Practicality over purity is our rule.The Web changes too quickly to believe your proprietary design will last many years. Design what you need now, but make it so that it can be extended later or collapsed entirely as new functionality appears.
The Web has placed additional demands on applications. Applications must handle heavy peak volume without significant performance degradation. Since these applications are critical to a businesses success, they must also be available 24X7 - downtime costs money was never more true.
As this new mode of operating in business has proliferated, Cloud infrastructure has matured to meet quick moving demands and agile development approaches. Scalable Designs can help you choose the technologies that work for you.
