How to Combat Bias Against Women in Fields Traditionally Occupied by Men

STEM-related industries (and particularly the tech world) have been under fire recently for their lack of gender diversity and their general biases against women in their workplaces.

We’re making progress, even in the tech field. In fact, Facebook’s 2018 diversity report shows that the social network is employing five times more women now than they were in 2014.

What Is Discovery, and Why Do We Need It for Software Development?

When it’s time to kick off a new custom software project, many businesses are champing at the bit to get started. They’re eager to launch their new software and start seeing results, and we can’t blame them. But if we hit the ground running right away, we’re actually doing our customers a disservice. In reality, the first thing we need to do is hit the brakes on development and kick off our partnership with a thorough discovery process.

4 Reasons Software Projects Fail

From startups to Fortune 500 companies, custom software solutions can have profound effects on business processes, customer experience, and the bottom line.

If they’re done right.

Does My Custom Software Come with a Warranty?

We hear this question sometimes, and it’s a fair assumption. After all, when we invest significant money in new products, from appliances to new to cars, we’re accustomed to receiving a warranty along with the purchase. So when we invest in a custom software application, why shouldn’t we receive a warranty then, too?

What is Cloud-First Development?

When businesses talk about moving software to the cloud, often what they mean is simply migrating existing software by replacing a traditional hosting provider with a cloud-based provider, or even developing new applications in a classic way and then deploying them in the cloud.

Defining Your Project Estimate

When businesses are searching for a vendor for their software projects, the number-one question on their minds is often how much the project will cost. But unlike products we purchase off the shelf, custom software solutions don’t come with price tags, exactly. Instead, vendors work with clients to fully understand their vision, their needs, and their budget. Then, they can use that information to define the scope (which includes specific goals, including deliverables, features, functions, and tasks) and provide an estimated cost and timeline for the particular project.

For Best Results, Keep Quality Assurance and Development Separate

At Syberry, we pride ourselves on high quality standards, and one of the ways we maintain those standards is by keeping development and quality assurance separate on every project, from beginning to end.

Couldn’t the developers test the software themselves? Doesn’t a separate QA team just add to the cost and extend the timeline? Sure, but we’re confident that separate QA is worth the extra resources, and the upfront investment will likely save both time and money in the long run.

Is the Cloud Really Secure?

One of the most common concerns about migrating software systems to the cloud is whether the cloud is truly secure enough to keep the data and systems store there safe.

It’s a fair question. After all, like the money in our IRAs and mutual funds, when we don’t really know where our assets are — when they’re abstracted into some nebulous, intangible system — it’s difficult not to wonder whether they’re really there and really secure. But, as one New York Times writer put it, both our money and our software are actually safer this way.

What Syberry Has Learned from Airline Practices—and How They Can Help Every Business

As passengers, we love to complain about airlines. From delayed flights to cramped seats and ridiculous carry-on policies to militant security procedures, there’s a lot to gripe about. But from a business perspective, there’s one important thing we can borrow from the likes of American, Southwest, and even United: the commitment to constant improvement.
