Which way do you go? What technologies do you select? What's the best return for our money? There are so many decisions to make when moving towards streamlining and automating your processes. You have to make decisions on what technology to use. Will that technology work in your existing environment? Can you integrate with current systems to keep our costs down? You've already made an investment in technology, how do you use what you currently have? What will allow you to process business more efficiently?
It's All About Process, People and Profits!
PROCESS - When building a new or upgrading your current system you need to understand how your business process will work within the system. It's not about you getting the system to work, it's about getting the system to work for you! Companies can become overwhelmed with technology, most of the time failing in creating and defining a clear roadmap. edwardGalt Technologies can help you define your "success roadmap" and build a level of confidence for a path to better process and technology integration. We'll work with you to understand operational procedures, and then create the technical processes, properly document and then successfully merge them together. With over 20 years of technology experience in both hardware and software systems, we can meet with you and help define a strategy of success for your business.
PEOPLE - The investment in people is what drives success. Your employees. They are the people who work for you who will drive success. You are making an investment in the people who run your business, and we understand that! edwardGalt Technologies will work not only with key stake-holders, but also directly with the people working your systems and processes. We want to understand at every level how the operation functions so everyone can be successful. Whether we are training on new processes, or gathering information on how processes and systems could be better, it's all about working as a team together for success!

We can help you invest in technology and define or redefine a roadmap that will lead you company to success and give you the knowledge and understanding to know you are making the right moves for your future success!
The goal of any software development project is to produce a product that is delivered on time, within the allocated budget, and with the capabilities expected by the customer. Sometimes unfortunately, this goal is not achieved. However, a properly managed project in a mature software engineering environment can consistently achieve this goal. There are three factors that define a successful project: it's properly managed, it has a competent project manager and maintains a mature software engineering environment.
What makes a project succeed?
Successful projects have
•Project Planning - Identify the scope, estimate the work and create a schedule
•Process control - Includes Communication, Risk, Compliance, Requirements, Change, Software and Release management
•Technology - Defining the needed systems for the project
•Development - The process of writing code to build systems
•Automated Testing - The use of Continuous Integration and testing scripts
•Quality Assurance - Monitoring the software engineering processes and methods used to ensure quality
•Release Management - The process of managing software releases from development to software release
•Deployment - The activities that make a software system available for use
•Administrative Functions - The installation, updating and troubleshooting of software
•Threat Intelligence/Penetration Testing - Threat Modeling, Security Review and Threat/Penetration Management
•Team Staffing - The staffing of the project team, including systems, business and development members
A properly managed project has a clear, communicated, and managed set of goals and objectives, whose progress is quantifiable and controlled and whose resources are used effectively to efficiently produce the desired product. When properly managed, a project usually has a communicated set of processes that cover the daily activities of the project, forming the project framework. As a result, every team member understands their roles and responsibilities and how they fit into the big picture, thus promoting the efficient use of resources. The processes also provide quantifiable feedback (metrics) with respect to process goals and objectives. Metrics provide the information necessary to assess a project's progress against a baseline project plan. Particular attention should be paid to the cost, schedule, scope, and quality aspects of a project.

Software development is the process of developing software through successive phases in an orderly way. This process includes not only the actual writing of code but also the preparation of requirements and objectives, the design of what is to be coded, and confirmation that what is developed has met objectives.
So, we can't just hire someone who codes and just tell him what we need? We all wish it was that easy. Software development is an extremely disciplined process, and there are many decisions to be made before placing one finger on a keyboard:
- What software development process should we use ?
- What development platform should we use? How much will it cost ?
- What software framework should we consider ?
- Which platform and framework will help us reach our goal quickly ?
- How much will a team cost for that particular platform and framework ?
- How much will it cost us to maintain our software after completion ?
- How do I test my software - should we involve the business in testing ?
- Is there already a software package that we can buy ?
- Should we develop this in-house or outsource the work ?
- It's going to cost how much ??
There is a lot to consider when investing in software development. edwardGalt Technologies can assist you with asking the right questions, then formulating a plan and executing.

Edward Galt (CISSP, CISA, CRISC, COBIT, ITIL, Advanced Penetration Training, HIPPA, PCI/DSS, ADA 508) has over 20 years of Technology experience. In the early 90's, he began his career at Procter and Gamble as a Hardware Installation Technical Lead, installing and servicing Computer Desktop and Network Servers - gaining a lot of experience in network topologies and Wide and Local Area networks. To solve an information sharing problem, he created an internal web system for engineers to share information among the disperse facilities. Because of his continual interaction and friendships with Executives, he was the first to introduce the "Intranet" at Procter and Gamble for internal corporate use (Global Laundry).
With that technological experience, he pursued software development. Starting with Visual Basic 3.0, he moved into other languages. Not limiting himself, he engaged in understanding Microsoft Development Platforms as well as Java Development Platforms and multiple other languages used with these platforms, continually educating himself on the many languages and platforms to stay current and fresh on the latest technologies - which continues to this day.
With this technical knowledge and a keen ability to absorb and understand business process, Edward Galt has been able to excel in the development of major software systems throughout his career. Working with such companies as Dinsmore and Schohl (one of the first Legal Case Management Systems), Protocol (Data Center and eCommerce Development Management), International Paper (xpedex.com), LexisNexis (Total Patent, The world's largest Patent Search and Analytics Engine), Garretson Resolution, (Complex Claims Administration), he has developed valuable experience in developing complex systems, and with this has also gained a valuable insight to understanding business process and communication. edwardGalt Technologies has experience in such industries as Legal, Insurance, Paper, Automotive, Claims Administration and eCommerce.
