What We Do
Software & Cloud Architecture
Software is complex and the Cloud has obsoleted many traditional architectural design patterns. Truly making use of the power of the Cloud involves rethinking a lot of what businesses used to take for granted. Our Cloud architecture and management services focus on implementing the right setup for each client based on their business work flows.
PoC (proof-of-concept) projects
Mini&More can quickly take a technical concept and take it live as a Cloud Solution, in the form of a Proof-of-Concept (PoC). a good PoC proves the viability of ideas can make the difference between getting investment funds or sponsorship, or not.
Database Design/Architecture, Data Analysis, SQL/NoSQL
The performance bottleneck of any large Cloud system is very often its storage processing power. Native Cloud application logic can be set to autoscale, just by using the right PaaS services, but storage is much harder to scale. Our team determines and implements the best database architecture solutions based on your business needs.
Long term Technological Vision, Innovation
You need to know where you want to be in three years from now, and focus on what you have to do now, to get there. We help you draw a clear strategy and modular strategy that adapts to your growth pace.
Agile process tuning
We are continuously fine tuning our process as we discover better ways of enabling teams of great people. We believe in agile development methodology because it enables us to create a workflow that perfectly fits your project and its needs.
QA is an important but often underestimated aspect of Software Development. We believe QA is not only about code, but also about process, documentation & support.
Talent Acquisition, Growth
One of the hardest parts of having a startup or scale-up is to acquire and grow a technical team that is actually going to build your product. It's the Wild West all over again with the recruiters and headhunters and their fees, and rarely do these people really understand what they are looking for in terms of skill sets. Mini&More can help. We call it guerilla-recruiting, and it works…
Mini&More follows the principle of Facilitating Leadership. The idea is that empowering your team means listening to what they need. Development Teams are creative by definition, and you don't set hard KPIs for creative people. Instead, you help them in being creative and thrive. We help businesses make the shift into a people-first management approach.
What’s the best way to develop, deploy, and manage applications in an era of new ideas, innovation, and digitalization? Our team can help you answer that question based on your business needs. We offer Cloud infrastructure consulting, set-up, optimization for efficiency, and cost control. Our Cloud infrastructure services include Virtual Machines, Docker / Kubernetes, and Serverless.
The Tech Canvas is a methodology Mini&More has developed, in order to classify startups & scale-ups in terms of maturity, based on a number of standards in Software Development.
Mini&More now uses the model to make sure every aspect that matters in development is taken into consideration.
A Quick-scan is a form of consultancy that quickly delivers insight in Cloud readiness/migration, performance bottlenecks, architectural status, security/privacy or other aspects of your solution. It includes an intake/kick-off, research phase and a report with findings & advice, mostly using Mini&More's Tech Canvas for structure and completeness.
Ontologies are the secret part of AI that gets little attention, though it can make a huge impact on application development. By capturing human knowledge in a machine readable format and can dramatically improve applications, both by being able to understand users' intentions and by applying intelligence to data flows.
