At Polymath Labs we specialize in writing high quality web application software, using effective technology, methodology, and architecture. While this means we can help with any kind of web application development, our main focus is cloud-native, serverless, and microservice development, because we believe these domains offer the most value in today’s digital ecosystem.
Cloud-native applications are designed to take full advantage of every benefit the cloud has to offer. While most applications developed for, or migrated to the cloud, focus on the elasticity offered by the cloud, coud-native applications focus on minimizing the development scope to only the business domain, and leverage cloud managed services, or third party APIs for everything else. This approach offers:
Cloud computing introduced the premise of outsourced physical server management and a pay-per-use model. Organizations went from having to acquire, own, and maintain infrastructure, whether they used it or not, to only paying for it when they use it, fine-tuned to the minute. Serverless take this model to the next level by further abstracting the infrastructure and making it possible for organizations to only pay while their code is being executed, fine tuned to the second. With Serverless:
Imagine a large mission critical application, serving millions of users. Adding a simple enhancement to such an application requires testing a significant number of potentially impacted features, potential audit and compliance checks on the entire application, user acceptance testing, and finally a major deployment within a predetermined downtime window. Then, imagine such an enhancement introducing a memory leak that takes the entire application down. Microservice architectures dictate the breakdown of such large monolithic applications into a large number of smaller independent but related applications:

When you outsource your project to us, we are accountable for every aspect of the delivery, which allows us to have the greatest impact. Our delivery model consists of assembling small high performing teams with the following structure:
It is possible to assemble hybrid teams, with client staff filling some of the above roles, allowing clients to have a more direct role in the journey, learn from us, and have an easier transition at the end of the project, but with the risk of lower efficiency.
Should you require additional capacity, but do not want or need to outsource the entire project, we can embed our staff within your team, giving you additional capacity and skills, while maintaining management control of the project. In this model, Polymath Labs offers:
In this model, project and work management are the responsibility of the client while our experts execute.
In case you are looking for advice, we can offer our decades of experience in multiple domains, such as:
If you are exploring any of these topics, or any new related technology, reach out to us to learn about our fixed fee workshops, where we research the topic you are interested in and present to your stakeholders on-site.
