How we can help 

Prevent unexpected project delays with business software consulting

Analyse - Understand - Develop - Measure

We help our customers struggling with ineffective and unreliable web, mobile, or software development processes. Whether you are dealing with an obsolete, legacy software infrastructure or your digital product is stalling, we offer qualified support as a part of software development consulting services.

Before crafting a proper development plan and technological solution, we want to holistically understand your business environment and goals. Thus, we can shape a cost-effective and reliable solution to your problems during the software development audit.

Altamira provides a unique approach to software technology consulting that distributes work across three core streams 

Technology stream

During our cooperation, we assess everything from coding style and complexity to tech documentation and test coverage, enabling you to understand the quality and health of your codebase.

Product stream

We take a deep dive into your business needs and help you find the critical features that your software needs to deliver. From there, we develop a high-level backlog that outlines the tasks and deliverables.

Process stream

We develop the most suitable process framework and provide guidance on team composition, ensuring that your development team has the ideal blend of skills and expertise for successful project delivery.

Software Development Audit

We audit your current software development project to identify risks before you escalate, avoid technical debts, and assess scalability. Our team outlines your growth opportunities to guarantee a successful product launch, scale-up, or improvement in your performance.

Project review and report

Altamira delivery team will work with you to identify the specific areas of your technology projects that require review while presenting a detailed report of our findings. As a software development consulting company, we will also provide recommendations to help you optimise your projects and accomplish your objectives.

Project optimisation map

You will receive recommendations and solutions to address any issues or challenges identified during the review. This may include adjusting your technology adoption path, improving your operational processes, or changing your project planning.

Quality assurance and testing

We will assess the quality of your existing codebase, including code reviews, to ensure it meets industry standards and is maintainable, scalable, and secure. Our experts will set quality standards and procedures, create guidelines to follow across the development process, review and change workflows to improve them.

Security check

Our team of experts verifies the software's compliance with security standards, evaluates the security features and mechanisms, and conducts penetration tests to identify weaknesses and vulnerabilities that might be exploited by malicious actors.

People also asked

What does a software development consultant do?

A software development consultant is a pro who steps into a project to offer expert advice, guidance, and solutions. They’re like the navigators of the tech world, helping companies pinpoint the right tech strategies, choose the best tools, and even jump in to write code if needed. Software engineering consulting experts often have a helicopter view of the software development lifecycle and can offer insights that might escape the in-house team.

What is the difference between IT consulting and software development?

IT consulting and software development are two sides of the same tech coin but play different roles. IT consulting is more about the big picture – focusing on how technology can help a business thrive. It’s about aligning tech strategies with business goals. On the flip side, software development is hands-on, where the magic of creating apps and software happens. It’s more about coding, designing, and bringing tech ideas to life.

Do software consultants make money?

Absolutely! Software development consulting can earn a pretty penny, especially if they’ve got niche skills and a track record of successful projects. They’re like the special ops of the tech world – companies are willing to pay top dollar for their expertise and the value they bring to the table. Their earnings can vary widely, depending on factors like experience, location, and the complexity of the projects they handle.

Which is better: software developer or consultant?

Developers are the creators who build and innovate tech solutions. Consultants, meanwhile, offer the strategy, guidance, and expertise to guide those solutions to success. Each role has its perks and challenges; the better choice depends on what excites you.
