Kastling Group℠ offers strategic management, analysis, and implementation of complex enterprise systems.
What is enterprise software modernization?

Building regular software is like building a residential house.

Building enterprise software is like building a hotel with regulations such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Modernizing enterprise software is like replacing an existing hotel with a better hotel while people are still checked-in.

Kastling Group® provides processes, tools, and services to make enterprise modernization work. Enterprise modernization is not simple, and our proven experience.

Do you need to modernize a large legacy system as soon as possible?

Working with large development teams in agile and enterprise environments (e.g. federal) is complex, and Kastling Agile Modernization Process® helps set up projects for success.  Technologies are carefully chosen based on business requirements to maximize functionality, performance, and development. The technical architecture is built with performance, development scalability, compliance, and post-release maintenance in mind. Teams are carefully crafted based on expertise, team size, and personality. Proven processes will be adapted and established from Day 1. Kastling Group® helps you undertake modernization projects with confidence.

Do you manage a large development team that constantly runs into delays?

Kastling Group℠ consultants are also known as the Technology SWAT Team. Each of our consultants undergo training to understand and use the Kastling Agile Modernization Process®. Development teams will instantly benefit from the processes and the tools honed after years of large-scale modernization experience. Kastling Group performs organizational and architectural analysis to help large teams deliver as efficiently as possible without burnout.

Do you need your new system(s) to be compliant with CyberSecurity, DevOps, Software Architecture, and Cloud Computing practices?

Kastling Group® builds new systems with your organization's goals in mind. Business functionality is our top priority, but we ensure that the functionality is built with the proper procedures to meet your enterprise's needs of today and the future. We have engineered our processes using popular tools (proprietary and open source) to deploy large systems into the cloud that exceed industry standards that minimize overhead burden on the development teams.
