Agile Inception built an automated Python Django-based tool to collect, aggregate, and correlate oncall hours for SoundCloud's pager duty team members.
The tool provides a web interface for users to augment their oncall entries, and allows HR staff to now produce reports and export data for payroll instantly.
More recently, Agile developed a custom chat bot that integrates with SoundCloud's Slack platform to provide employees with fun and easy access to corporate information and resources.
“We really enjoyed working with Jeff and his team at Agile Inception. Not only did they build a solution that met our needs but they were a pleasure to work with. They were also great at facilitating our project and worked with us closely to make sure our requirements were met, going so far as to preemptively propose additional features to make the solution work even better for us. I highly recommend them as an external development partner.”Jake Maizel · Vice President, Infrastructure and Core Engineering
Agile Inception worked closely with Business and Decision between 2013 and 2017, providing expertise and guidance for some of B&D's key customer engagements in the US.
Services and consulting provided by Agile included software build and deployment automation, operations support and training, legacy and cloud systems integration, deep-dive troubleshooting and fault analysis, and strategies for new technogy and processes adoption.
B&D's US managed services division is now AccountabilIT.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Agile Inception resources for the last three years on numerous projects. They always deliver and have become a trusted partner that we can count on in the most challenging of circumstances. I am very grateful for their unyielding determination to make sure that things work the way they should.”Jamie Allen, Customer Management
Agile Inception was engaged with Plan C on some exciting and forward-thinking projects.
We helped them develop the latest version of GNS3, a Python-based virtual network emulation tool used by thousands of network engineers around the world. We built out an OpenStack private cloud for a Canadian Big Energy company that allows them to rapidly prototype new systems and applications with self-serve IaaS. Agile also provided advice and consulting support for a Plan C private cloud initiative with one of Canada's biggest infrastructure service providers.
“We had the great pleasure of working with Michael and Jeff of Agile Inception and their team on three technically challenging projects. We are an agile shop and working with a dynamic, geographically disperse team allowed our project to create and maintain a momentum that ran around the clock.
All our engagements with Agile Inception were profitable, successful and on time. With their help we achieved our targeted outcomes in each case. These guys are a great way to augment your own team and access skills that you may not have.
Two thumbs up all the way.”Greg Saunders, Director
Rocscience is a global leader in creating geotechnical software, and has been a client of Agile Inception partners for over 15 years. The latest project for Rocscience was a complete CMS-based website redesign and build in 2015, including a sophisticated e-commerce portal to sell their numerous software packages.
Our engagement with Juice Mobile was focused around performance issues and bottlenecks encountered during the testing of their ad-engine service. With the use of real-time market data, redirected to our test environment, we were able to profile the AWS compute, storage and networking resources in our determination of the root cause of the problem.
