Below are questions that could help you get started as we cooperate together in building your next generation ecommerce platforms to become "headless".
How can Sly help me to implement "headless" ecommerce?
"Headless" ecommerce have their own inherent complications and we help you see through them. After our initial consultations, we will have devised a strategy for implementing a "headless" platform. You can decide how much you want Sly to assist you in this implementation: we have our specialised "headless" software developers that can support your in-house engineers.
We must identify and partition those microservice applications that are needed for your "headless" ecommerce platform, where they will be in the architecture and what purpose they will serve. Additionally, identifying a monitoring application will be essential to improve performance and reduce latency between applications. We also need to implement and test the deployment of these microservice applications we've developed together.
Where do we start first with implementing "headless" ecommerce?
We recommend to begin our collaboration with a kickoff and a screening of your needs. During this kickoff session, we will review your architecture together and available documentation.
After our kickoff meeting, we will review next steps and discuss an implementation. We may need to develop a PoC (Proof of Concept) to test how effectively microservices can be integrated in your architecture.
Is it expensive and difficult to setup a "headless" architecture?
Together we assess the complexity and breadth of your current ecommerce architecture and thereafter partition work in accordance with your budget and duration of the project.
Depending on the complexity of your architecture, and the services that you need, we must define, build, and test the applications individually to be sure that they operate seamlessly in your architecture. We can always discuss the cost together and provide an estimation that is reasonable for you.
Can we develop "headless" ecommerce without Sly?
Yes, of course. We can work alongside your in-house developers to build the microservice application or without our presence. We will guide you through the development and provide recommendations to ensure that the applications are correctly developed.
If requested, SlyDevs can meet with your in-house devs to do a workshop in microservice development and from there your developers can take the lead and we'll be there to support you.
How long does it take to develop a microservice architecture?
Depending on the complexity of your needs, and your current environment, we can better provide you with a specific answer. Additionally, if you want a full-scale architecture it would take some time and a great deal of effort and time for you and Sly.
We recommend developing applications carefully and testing frequently. This will help us to incrementally deliver quality and reliability for you and your in-house developers.
Can Sly work with our task/project management application?
We work with standard development task management applications and services provided by Atlassian and several others.
If you create accounts for us in your GIT repo, JIRA, Confluence, etc.. when we get started with you and you inform us of any specific process you undertake when working in those applications, we will adapt.
Can Sly instruct our developers in microservice development?
SlyDevs can, at your request, provide consulting and education to your in-house developers to be sure that they develop microservices in accordance with the highest software development principles.
SlyDevs can also code review the work your in-house developers create during the development and pre-deployment phases of your process.
Can SlyDevs be available for the entire period of a scrum iteration?
Based on the availability of SlyDevs and their ongoing responsibilities, we will be more than happy to accommodate your needs.
Will Sly be able to integrate in a SAFe Lean Enterprise?
Absolutely, we have received coaching from our resident SAFe Certified Scrum Master in the areas where our work would be involved, and where we would be able to support you.
Because not all SAFe enterprises are structured in the same way, we will have to adapt to your organisation's structure.
Can we borrow a Scrum Master from Sly?
Yes of course! We have a SAFe Certified Scrum Master available to support your developers in adopting the Lean-Agile mindset needed for effective and efficient software development.
If you require support in Scrum Ceremonies, Daily Standups, or Retrospectives, feel free to get in touch with our resident Scrum Master.
Our 25 years of experience is to your advantage. We want to consult you and provide you insights that will lead you on the right path.
Our consulting practises are streamlined and organised. We provide documentation about our agreed path, and arrange next steps with you.
Skilled developers work with Sly to engineer the perfect ecommerce application for your needs. We adhere to standards and best practises.
We adhere to software standards, building applications in accordance with what you already understand and we collaborate with your team, or external partners using applications you already use. In addition, we provide a scrum master to help you deliver your goals.
We will tailor a solution that effectively delivers reliable services to your customers. We create a strategic ecommerce solution together.
From consulting to drafting solutions, we want to find what possibilities are realistic and what you can achieve on your budget. We take a timely approach and a few meetings to get us on a path suitable for your ecommerce environment and budget.
Know your ecommerce environment with monitoring, stabilisation, performance enhancements. Our goal is that you become self-sufficient in your ecommerce endeavours, whilst fulfilling your operational goals.
We work with local partners and our development team to provide you: on-premise solutions, devOps support, monitoring, cost optimisation, SAAS, stability/performance availability, as well as operating and improving your entire ecommerce infrastructure.
Search is an integral part of your ecommerce solution. We provide consulting and support to help you optimise your search applications.
Improving search usability, speed, and performance is critical in today's ecommerce environments. Applications need to be robust and performant in order to handle high volume search requests. We collaborate with you in order to improve your ecommerce search.
