Virtual Office Operations

Find out how our IT experts transformed internal operations for the custom development company Art+Logic.
The Challenge

Art+Logic is a custom software development company that operates as a virtual office organization. Their team works in a variety of programming languages, platforms, and frameworks/schemas. Notably, they take a unique approach to their software development process. The company’s software developers take a project, no matter how large, and break it down into smaller projects. By using this process, their clients can evaluate the project’s progress at multiple points along the development cycle. This helps the software developers stay on budget, on schedule, and on task.

Art+Logic first approached Digital Maelstrom shortly after the company’s IT Operations Specialist quit unexpectedly. As mentioned before, Art+Logic operates almost entirely as a distributed virtual office. Their employees are located throughout North America and Europe, and their main method of collaboration is virtual communication. Thus, it’s easy to see why stable, expertly managed IT is absolutely essential to the organization’s internal processes.

The Solution

Digital Maelstrom optimized Art+Logic’s entire virtual office environment. Following the success of enhancing their internal IT operations, they chose to implement more of our offered services. We recommended engineering tools and IT processes that would allow their development efforts to happen faster and more flexibly. We also serve as their strategic advisors for answering software architecture questions, and making sense of different bespoke software approaches. Later on, in light of our proven track record, A+L asked our engineering team to manage their internal processes. We regularly consult their team on systems architecture matters. These include Amazon Web Services, info security (InfoSec), software development trends, advanced networking, virtualization, and continuous integration.

Virtual Office Systems Reimagined

Today, Art+Logic has partnered with Digital Maelstrom for over 13 years. Throughout our partnership, we have helped this custom software development company increase uptime, optimize efficiency, and improve virtual collaboration.
