Stop Hiring Software Developers as Implementation Specialists

Posted by Lee Farabaugh on Sep 15, 2020 1:49:45 PM

“Alright stop what you’re doing, ‘cuz I’m about to ruin the image and style that you’re used to.”

-- Digital Underground, The Humpty Dance

It’s safe to say that this is the first time I’ve ever used the lyrics of an early ‘90s hip-hop song to kick off a blog-post. But in this case, the words are so perfect for the theme of this blog that I just had to do it.

You know that software developer you’re about to hire to lead your Implementation Team?

Stop what you’re doing!

In-House, Augment, or Outsource: What's Best for Growing Your Business

Posted by Lee Farabaugh on Sep 3, 2020 4:19:43 PM

When I was a kid, one of the two hinges broke off of my toilet seat.

As any inquisitive person would, I checked to see if I could fix it. Though I used all my knowledge of Legos and basic hardware, I quickly realized I was incapable of turning my now multi-directional toilet seat back to its original design.

So, I asked my dad for help. I knew what was wrong, had an educated guess on how to fix it, but needed some outside help to get the job done. Together, we put our best effort into the job. Let's just say the results were dicey and included dusct tape.

Eventually, the real expert in our family (my mother) intervened and called the plumber. I’ll never forget the joy I felt coming home from school one day to a non-duct taped, fully functioning toilet seat!

Fast forward to today. Sadly, I’ve seen companies try to make all three of the above work.

I know what you’re thinking and no, I’m not talking about fixing the office toilet.

When faced with an opportunity to grow and improve your business, do you handle projects in-house, augment your internal team with additional resources, or outsource the work entirely to a specialist?

There are pros and cons to all three, especially when you are looking to tackle an integration or implementation project at your company. Let’s dive in and review your options.

10 Hiring Best Practices for Your Next Implementation Specialist

Posted by Lee Farabaugh on Aug 18, 2020 10:41:01 AM

You’re sitting at home and decide to watch a movie. You pull up Netflix and scroll through what feels like an endless array of movies before stumbling upon a title you remember someone in your circle of friends talking about in glowing terms. But you’re not quite sold — yet. 

You review the cast and start to feel better. It’s loaded with actors and actresses you really respect. It’s even starring that one person with the dreamy eyes who makes you go weak in the knees. You check the reviews and it’s earned high marks from both critics and fans. It even won a few big-name awards. By all accounts, you should enjoy every minute of this movie. So you sit back, relax, and start the show.

Two hours later, you’re hugely disappointed. This movie, with its remarkable cast, great reviews, critical respect, and a few major awards, failed to meet your expectations. It’s not that the movie was bad, it just wasn’t right. At least not for you. 

Hiring an implementation specialist is no different.

The death of AngularJS and why you should care

Article written by Elizabeth Sanger, a software developer at Core10.

Angular Versus AngularJS

Although arguably the most popular and widely understood modern web framework, Angular can still challenge anyone attempting to keep up with its nomenclature, much less make informed business decisions around its various iterations. Even seasoned development teams can stall when determining which version to use or when to update.

How APIs are driving the fintech revolution

Posted by Tatum Utley on Mar 12, 2019 12:15:33 PM

Article written by Vinicius Morais.

APIs, or Application Programming Interfaces, are a way to integrate systems, enable benefits such as data security, ease exchange of information between different programming languages, and monetize access to valuable data.

APIs provide the integration between distinct systems in an agile and secure way. The possibilities provided by the use of APIs allows the connection of heterogeneous technologies, such as different databases, programming languages or operating systems. Also, one can make application-specific features and tools available to others with ease.
