The HAT working for you
Hexacta's commitment to maintaining continuous improvement of its world-class software development projects is reflected in this experienced pool of architects available at no additional cost for our clients. This group is the Hexacta Architecture Team (HAT), our "elite" team.
Its main purpose is to provide advisement and solutions to project managers on issues of architecture, design, technologies, and frameworks, enhancing services quality and engineers teams' productivity. Among the main benefits they provide, we can mention the following:
- Increase projects productivity: they provide architectural revisions and recommendations.
- Ensures quality of software development: underlining processes and best practices.
- Research the latest technologies, products, and frameworks: taking advantage of the expertise of its members and understanding its impact on the company's operation.
- Dictate seminars, workshops, and short courses training for Hexacta's engineers: they spread the best practices and knowledge to the IT community by writing whitepapers publications, research studies, and actively participating in the development communities. They also have their Blog with technical articles.
- Control the correct use of definitions in each project.
How it operates
The team is a pool of full-time engineers with minimum turnover. They conduct research and architectural activities. Every three weeks, the team organizes a follow-up meeting with the rest of the architects of Hexacta to synchronize and generate visibility on specific tasks.
These meetings are also designed to generate feedback on the decisions and tasks implemented, as well as to create a space where technical problems are discussed and solved.
The HAT team dedicates its time to both internal and external tasks.
Half of its time is focused on architecture tasks like architectural design, prototyping, evaluating, and documenting. Also, the team gathers information from others and documents it for internal use. In addition, it learns new technologies, different types of architecture and best practices to implement in existing or future projects
The other half of the time is dedicated to support specific client-based projects, making recommendations, and R&D.
Formed by full-time IT experts with a global vision of the business, and lead by one of our "gurus" technical managers.
Typical profiles of a HAT member are people passionate about what they know but even more passionate about what they don't know. They also have excellent communication and presentation skills since part of their role is to provide training. It is also expected that members are proactive and self-taught as a way to anticipate future problems.
Most of them have teaching experience in universities and active participation in academic research groups.
