Technical Delivery

Technology transformation is a key enabler in driving value from any organisations information assets. The Aiimi team are skilled delivery consultants certified in delivery of our technology partners' solutions.

ECM

For our customers, an ECM solution means a software implementation that provides a single repository in which all unstructured (document, picture, video, drawing, spreadsheet) content can be stored, located, managed and disposed of. Our consultants are expert at analysing the requirements for ECM solutions, installing, adapting, integrating and managing them, whether the implementation is done on a customer’s premises or hosted by us on cloud infrastructure such as Azure.

We implement OpenText Content Server and eDocs solutions as well as Microsoft SharePoint. We integrate ECM solutions into line of business applications, allowing documents to be retrieved and presented in context with other information drawn from structured data sources.

We have experience of deploying into organisations that run Oracle and SAP ERP, as well as numerous brands of CRM, service management, process management and other business systems. Our services run from the initial design of the application and infrastructure, through implementation, integration, customisation to rollout and long term management and support.

Application Development

Our development capability is design led, focussing on the user experience first and our developers utilise a combination of .Net and Java to both extend and customise existing applications as well as develop complete solutions. The solutions that we have developed include for example a cloud hosted “One View of a Citizen” portal for a local authority which allows contact centre staff to have a single view of all interactions for a citizen with the council when they call in and a Charter Contract Management application for use in the shipping industry. Our solutions use a combination of ground up development along with commercial and open source components e.g. Elastic Search, MicroStrategy / Microsoft reporting tools, Google Maps and Documentcloud. We also develop solutions that are used by multiple customers and directly supported or hosted by us, including application management and monitoring solutions, migration tools, authentication directory management applications and master data management tools.

Our .Net development practices are based on the latest Microsoft development standards and utilise Entity Framework, responsive design, HTML5, CSS3, and ECMAScript version 5, and modern web technologies such as jQuery and ASP.NET MVC3 as defined under the Microsoft Silk guidelines.

Our development team are all certified in one or more different development technologies and practices and we specifically certify all of our developers in one or more of the .NET professional certifications, including Content & Collaboration, .Net Development, HTML 5 development and Azure development.
