Cogent Defence and Security Systems Ltd

Engagement 1: Agilier provided mentoring services to a team of enterprise business modellers who were capturing the company’s primary business processes as part of the installation of an Oracle E-business system. By using facilitated workshops with all the key business users, we achieved early stakeholder agreement and also captured key business requirements. As a result of this initial stakeholder consensus, resultant system changes were reduced by 80% compared to conventional interviewing techniques.

Engagement 2: Agilier provided leadership for a team of fifteen, from inception through to delivery to the MoD, using Agile methods (Scrum and XP) integrated within a PRINCE2 environment. This web-based system was Cogent’s first to be delivered using XP techniques and was delivered on time, to scope and within its budget.

Cogent wanted to investigate a cost-effective way of integrating disparate software systems. Agilier provided the subject-matter expertise for a successful prototype system using a service-oriented architecture (SoA).


“I was extremely happy with the professional and complete way that Agilier performed their work and would not hesitate to use their services again.”
