Key Considerations

There are key elements we will keep in mind as we work with you on your project. This will give you some insight into how we will approach work and include recommendations for things to consider as you decide who to work with.

Product vs Software Project

We view our clients’ work as products that are more than the tasks associated with software construction. Software may contain many features, screens, and business rules, but… Read More products have real users with real needs and business problems to solve. We keep this subtle but important distinction top of mind at every level of our process.
Read Less

User-Centric Design

Even if you believe you know exactly how you want your product to look and behave, we always encourage our clients to challenge their assumptions. It’s suprising how often… Read More surefire ideas are quickly proven wrong after they’re launched. We want our clients to learn which product features and designs they shouldn’t build before they spend time and money building them by spending time with users, researching their true needs.
Read Less

Building an MVP

We encourage a lot of our clients, especially ones launching their first products, to take an MVP approach. It’s surprising how often founders will… Read More get caught up in their own ideas or believe that they need so many features in order to go to market. In reality, your minimally viable product is often a lot smaller than you believe. Building with an MVP mindset will allow you to get to market quicker on a smaller budget.
Read Less

Developing for Mobile

While many of the considerations of the mobile ecosystem are similar to other platforms, there are numerous specific challenges and pitfalls… Read More to address when navigating this space. Taivara has extensive experience in multi-platform, public and private, small startup to enterprise level mobile delivery experience.
Read Less

Standards-Based Approach

While each business application plays a unique role in the market, we often find that the technology required to deliver those functions is not unique. Taivara believes strongly in… Read More using well-understood solutions and patterns to solve well-understood problems. This standards-based approach reduces time to deliver, increases quality, allows for easy developer onboarding and knowledge transfer, and provides future-proofing against shifts in technology trends.
Read Less

Single vs Multiple Codebases

There are multiple ways to build native mobile applications, and each have their tradeoffs. Taivara has developed applications using standard native toolsets, “write once,… Read More compile to native” platforms, and embedded mobile web. We can speak from experience and recommend the best practice for the business need.
Read Less

Building for Security

We take security very seriously as our CEO is a former CISO. We work in highly-regulated industries such as financial services, healthcare, cyber/infosec and education. All of our data… Read More is encrypted at rest and in transit. We ensure that each of our users has only the necessary authorizations and comply by standard password protocol. Existing Taivara-developed applications have passed intensive security testing.
Read Less

Software Accessibility

Accessibility in software is something that is often overlooked. It is very important you take accessibility into consideration up front rather than face consequences… Read More down the road. Taivara can help you evaluate and develop software that complies with the most current Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
