Symphony Services is a software innovation company. We help our clients ideate, develop, deploy and manage innovative software and software-enabled products. Our solutions address traditional and new software product engineering challenges created by faster release cadences, the need for mobile cross-platform user experiences and the shift to a cloud delivery model.
Symphony Services has changed the rules of outsourced software product engineering. We bring certainty and success to your software engineering initiatives – in the form of Outcome CertaintyTM. Symphony’s unique Outcome CertaintyTM engagement model enables our clients to accelerate their product experiences while tackling a wide range of new development complexity and cost challenges with guaranteed results. Our global client base includes 8 of the 10 largest software manufacturers, along with leading healthcare, retail, financial, telecom and clean-tech companies.
At Symphony, we’re committed to ensuring our clients stay ahead of the game. Our primary goal is to add significant value to our clients – with modern solutions – across every phase of the product lifecycle. While we continue to push the innovation envelope in fast-growing areas such as enterprise mobility, SaaS/ Cloud enablement and Product Quality Management, we help our clients mine other key areas today, including product line management and analytics.
Symphony’s Enterprise Mobility solution was architected specifically to help software makers reduce the time, cost and complexity of mobilizing software, while delivering an exceptional user experience. Now, for the first time, software manufactures can get assistance in each phase of the mobilization process, including strategy and design, back office integration, development and testing, and ongoing operations and optimization initiatives. Symphony’s Enterprise Mobility Solution delivers an innovative end-to-end enterprise mobility solution that delivers a rich user experience and reduces testing and certification complexity that can reduce your total cost of ownership, boost the productivity of your customers. In a tough business environment, the right mobility solutions can enhance your competitive advantage and increase your bottom line.
Symphony’s Cloud Engineering Services span the entire cloud lifecycle- beginning with advising on the optimal cloud strategy and roadmap, leveraging the product engineering rigor in re-architecting the products, adopting robust migration/development methodologies, supporting the ISV in deployments and operations and last but not the least offering post migration product engineering services optimized for the cloud. Symphony has partnered with the leaders in the cloud computing space to deliver cloud services solutions to its customers. Symphony is part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) solution providers program helping deliver solutions and consulting services on the AWS infrastructure platform. Symphony is also a gold certified Microsoft partner and it is helping deliver assessment and migration services for ISVs looking to move to the MS Azure platform.
Product Lifecycle Management:
Symphony Services’ Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Services offer product companies alternatives to manage the de-investment in mature products and drive transformation. Symphony Services takes on end-to-end responsibility for selected products and product lines, from full PDLC and support services to sales and operational activities, all aligned against agreed-upon SLAs and using a global delivery model to reduce the cost of operations. Symphony’s offering is in sync with industry-recognized PLM best practices (Forrester Report, April 2009) that keep programs manageable, drive collaboration across the development process and integrate to downstream applications. Through a diverse set of outcome-based PLM engagement models that enable clients to either retain revenues or focus on pure margins or maximize cash, Symphony guarantees the alignment of delivery to client’s business objectives.
Symphony Services is helping clients create the next generation of software offerings. As a “pure-play” specialist, Product Development is our DNA. We can support the entire continuum of product development activities, providing complete turnkey services, or handling individual segments of the process (architecture, UI development, functionality development, QA and security testing, etc.). Symphony Services works as a seamless extension of on-shore client teams; therefore, we adapt development processes used by the client to the offshore environment. Our clients expect faster time to market and more new features per release and we deliver equal productivity to their team. Our focus on Engineering Outcome CertaintyTM drives R&D results that shorten time-to-market for new products, ensure higher quality, reduced cost of quality and delivers greater innovation to compete in a global marketplace. Unlike most service providers who concentrate on “output” (performing tasks), Symphony Services delivers “outcomes” (based on results-oriented, performance metrics). This isn’t about staff augmentation; it’s about picking the right partner.
Product Quality Management:
Independent software vendors (ISVs) face a frenetic pace today to deliver innovative software releases to market. New forces such as improving the investment balance towards new (versus legacy) products, delivering a compelling cross-platform user experience, shifting to a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, and enabling mobility are outstripping the traditional approaches to product quality management (PQM) where Quality through Inspection in a best effort model has not given expected results and has almost always fallen short to achieve desired product quality and customer satisfaction in agile models. Symphony Services has developed an innovative Product Quality Management solution to solve these problems, and offers PQM as a managed service to Independent Software Vendors, software enabled businesses and companies whose products contain embedded software. Symphony offers PQM services with Outcome CertaintyTM, a flexible engagement model designed to ensure alignment with clients’ ultimate business objectives.
Symphony Services has helped companies create value across the entire spectrum of analytics – from simple report creation, to sophisticated, closed-loop, analytical decision-support solutions. With numerous awards and an impressive customer list, our success has been driven by our commitment to enabling insightful, fact-based and agile business processes that produce superior results. We offer analytic services for ISVs including software companies, web-based service providers and infomediaries as well for large enterprises.
Symphony Services’ core expertise in Outsourced Software Product Services coupled with its deep understanding of Engineering design for Automotive, Aerospace and General Engineering customers, places it in a unique position to offer OPD services to the ISVs of ES tools, with an additional focus being in the areas of Geometry, Meshing and HPC.
