Trusted, Cloud-Based Solutions

Improve Performance, Reduce Costs

Applications in the cloud continue to resonate with cost conscious and forward thinking technology professionals. Menlo has experience in many platforms and applications, and in the cloud. Our clients have partnered with us to develop solutions using some of the industry leading applications and technologies in the cloud.

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services that developers and IT professionals use to build, deploy, and manage applications through our global network of datacenters. With Azure, you get the freedom to build and deploy wherever you want, using the tools, applications, and frameworks of your choice. Let Menlo help you integrate and migrate the Microsoft tools you rely on with Azure Cloud.

BLOCKCHAIN + CRYPTOCURRENCY

Blockchain is a transparent and verifiable system that businesses are using as a common data layer to enable a new class of applications. Now, business processes and data can be shared across multiple organizations, eliminating waste, reducing the risk of fraud, and creating new revenue streams. 

Simplifies development

Cut development time and experiment easily with modular, preconfigured networks and infrastructure.

Gets you up and running quickly

Iterate and validate blockchain scenarios quickly by using built-in connections to Azure and tools you’re already familiar with.

Allows you to innovate with confidence

Keep your data secure and scale when you need to—on an open, trusted, globally available cloud platform.

AZURE IoT

With Microsoft Azure IoT capabilities, Menlo can help you collect real-time telemetry data from remote sensors, gain actionable insights for improved decision-making, and drive operational efficiency.

Azure IoT Hub

Connect, monitor, and manage billions of devices to develop IoT applications.

Azure IoT Central

Helps you experience the simplicity of SaaS for IoT.

Azure IoT Edge

Extends cloud Intelligence and analytics to edge devices. Delivers Cloud intelligence locally by deploying and running artificial intelligence, Azure services, and custom logic directly on cross-platform IoT devices

App Modernization

 

Menlo will modernize applications that are critical to your business.

Legacy applications can be a headache for organizations undergoing a digital transformation. Software developed on out-of-date platforms using older programming tools can be inflexible and difficult to change.

There is no single or one-size-fits-all strategy to migrate the legacy applications to the cloud. The right migration strategy depends on your organization’s goals, how your applications will align to them, and what value the applications bring to your business.

Cloud Infrastructure-based Applications: 

Migrate or rehost existing on-premises applications to the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform. The apps will have almost the same composition as before, but they can now be able to deploy to VMs in the cloud. This form of migration is typically known as “Lift & Shift.”

Cloud Optimized Applications:

Help organizations gain additional benefits even without altering or the significantly rearchitecting code. You can run your app with modern cloud technologies such as containers or through other cloud-managed services. You can also deploy the containers on PaaS or IaaS to databases, monitoring, cache as a service, and CI/CD (continuous integration/continuous deployment) pipelines.

Cloud-Native Applications are the ultimate cloud goal

Cloud-Native Apps are purpose built for the cloud model. These applications—built and deployed in a rapid cadence by small, dedicated feature teams to a platform that offers easy scale-out and hardware decoupling—provide organizations with greater agility, resilience, and portability across cloud environments.

BENEFITS OF CLOUD-NATIVE APPLICATIONS INCLUDE:

A competitive advantage

Cloud-native means switching cloud goals from IT cost savings to the engine of business growth. Businesses that can quickly build and deliver applications in response to customer needs will build enduring success.

Resilience

When legacy infrastructure fails, services can suffer. In a cloud-native world, teams focus specifically on architecting for resilience.

Flexibility

With a platform that supports a cloud-native approach, enterprises build applications that run on any (public or private) cloud without modification. Teams retain the ability to run apps and services where it makes the most business sense.

Aligns operations with the overall business

By automating IT operations, enterprises can transform into a lean, focused team aligned with driving business priorities. They eliminate the risk of failure due to human error as staff focus on automated improvements to replace routine, mundane admin tasks.

The Bottom Line

Modernized applications are liquid, in that they are micro-engineered, cloud-first, and assembled rapidly using Platform-as-a-Service, which can enable up to 50% faster time to market.

Mobile App Experts

TRUSTWORTY EXPERTISE

Through numerous client projects, Menlo has built a strong reputation for providing high quality iOS and Android application development services. We build both native and hybrid applications for clients, ranging from startups to Fortune 100 enterprises. Clients rely on Menlo’s senior development teams to build what in many cases is their entire mobile product from scratch. Other organizations have backend resources, but work with Menlo to benefit from our Mobility Practice to improve their time to market.

We leverage our years of mobile development experience to optimize:

  1. Performance
  2. Memory management
  3. Backend integrations
  4. Workflow

User Experience Design

A well-designed user interface provides a direct path from your clients to your products or services.

At Menlo Technologies, we design experiences that incorporate well researched elements that will resonate with your users. We take into account best practices of visual design, usability, information architecture and interaction design to create excellent user interfaces. We collaborate with clients on the design, development, and deployment of software experiences that make sense, simplify life and spark innovation.

Our projects start with strategic experience design (UX) and continue through visual interface design (UI) and front-end development.

WE RESEARCH

Our research brings your users’ behavior and preferences to life. We observe humans where they hang out. What is your customer going to do when he encounters your website or product? Menlo’s research on persuasion and human interaction, combined with common sense and user validation, helps us develop user experiences that feel natural and intuitive.

WE PUT INSIGHTS INTO ACTION

We develop concepts for innovation based on system requirements and what we understand about your audience. We create a grounded vision for the product using design principles to guide it through the design and build process.

WE CREATE INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE

Based on the goals set at the beginning of the UX process, our cross-functional team of designers and developers work together to iteratively design, build, test, and validate features that scale and evolve to meet tomorrow’s challenges. We conduct user-testing sessions and perform detailed analysis to transform data into actionable design improvements.

WE LAUNCH AND OBSERVE

We continuously evaluate through analytics to refine your solution and help identify emerging opportunities.

Testing & QA

Testing and Quality Assurance is a critical component of business application development

It’s not an effort to tack on shortly before application delivery. The Menlo Technologies QA/Test Practice reporting goes directly through our VP of Global Delivery. We measure and monitor defect counts on a regular basis and automate this reporting using PowerBI and Jira.

Menlo emphasizes test-driven development. Our engineering team is required to conduct business application development based on specific test scripts and to unit test all code prior to deploying to QA. We work with clients to determine the appropriate QA strategy to use: manual, automated, or a combination of the two. Whether the test automation is tightly coupled with a DevOps release cycle depends on the effort needed and the maturity of the product or software technology we deliver.

Clients may engage Menlo Technologies:

Specifically for QA

To work as an integral part of the client’s development team

As part of a broader QA/development team

CODE COVERAGE AND TEST LIBRARIES

Junit, Test Rails, CUnit, PHPUnit

ISSUE TRACKING, WORKFLOW, AND METRICS
