Building fit for purpose solutions
No two businesses are exactly alike. NGIS listens to you to understand your business problems and works to create custom solutions that combine the right mix of spatial technologies. As integrators and partners of some of the world's leading technology providers, we ensure your solution is going to be right for your business.
NGIS has an experienced delivery team that employs proven methodologies for management, development and support of software applications.
Cloud-based mapping applications that can be used through a browser or phone make up a large proportion of what we deliver. We hide all the complexity required to build a map application so the user sees just what they need with an easy to use interface.
NGIS' development team includes solutions architects, software developers and testers. Our stable and skilled team have expertise in a wide range of technologies and platforms. We cross skill to ensure that development is not impeded through the absence of any team member.
The team uses a test-driven development and continuous integration approach to ensure timely delivery. Testing reduces time spent in remediation and reduces development time. Visual Studio Team Services is our standard continuous integration environment.
Our software development methodology emphasises constant communication and updates. The team uses daily stand ups to tackle issues and review progress. At the end of each sprint we share progress with our clients and incorporate feedback in our work.
When the project is delivered, we transition to our support team or to people in the client organisation. Where projects have been conducted under a DevOps framework, the NGIS team provides ongoing support and maintenance. This service is also offered under a support agreement for all clients where required, using our internal help desk.
Our project managers use methodologies including Prince2, Agile Scrum and DevOps. Depending on the needs of the project, we will suggest the most applicable methodology.
The spatial services team provides GIS support services to clients. It also works in tandem with the software development team by providing essential advice on spatial concepts and technology. This team works with multiple spatial technologies both proprietary and open source.
