Our Top 4 IT-Services
auticon is an international social enterprise, offering professional B2B consulting services to clients in industry and service sectors. All our consultants are on the autism spectrum.
On this page you will find some examples of auticon’s recent client work and technologies used in the areas of testing, data analytics, coding and compliance.
Quality Assurance & Testing
Example 1: Test design and execution
The client (a financial services provider) required testing services for their new strategic SAAS offering. auticon was responsible for the testing of the authentication and services access for the newly developed offering.
From a testing point of view, auticon delivered a test suite of BDD tests using Cucumber (with Java and Behave steps) interfacing with the CI (Jenkins), facilitating automated testing to prove each build undertaken. The system under test involved a series of custom Rest APIs and OKTA. The client’s pilot service launched successfully and on time after our involvement.
Example 2: VoD services
The client, a well-known media company and provider of online streaming services, required a mixture of testing services for one of their third party platform providers and Android delivery channels.
auticon initially delivered manual testing services, developing the test cases and scripts to prove the solutions. Over time, auticon consultants began introducing automated testing to increase efficiencies in service and improve speed of release. This included development of BDD tests, using Cucumber (with Java and Ruby steps) and development of SQL scripts to improve functionality. This enabled the client to ensure consistency of their service on the variants of the Android platform and stability of their services for the third party content provider.
Example 1: Data analytics
A large pharma company approached auticon to assist with the development of a new data platform, to provide efficiencies and insights within the organisation.
Our consultants developed automated data curation and QA services, design of new tables and data sets and performance enhancements within the new Big Data platform. A mixture of technologies was used in the delivery involving, SQL, Spark, Java, Python, against Oracle and Hadoop platforms. Due to the success of the original pilot and the new analytics provided, the client is now taking the solution into production and is expanding the scope and range of data consumed by the platform.
Example 2: Model assurance
A Public Sector body approached auticon to assist with the validation of one of their models that provides guidance for both UK and foreign businesses. auticon consultants worked on mathematical, data and processing validation services and delivered key cognitive strengths in pattern recognition, logical processing and attention to detail.
Through the analysis of algorithms, validation of assumptions, confirmation of conversion rates and output checking, the quality of the model and its use is now assured for a global audience. The Public Sector client is on track for the delivery of the model, which will form part of a national event.
Software Development & Migration
Example 1: App delivery
A third sector client asked auticon to develop an app to assist with the management of stress within individuals.
Our consultants provided key insight as well as development services for the multi-national agile delivery. The development utilised the Django Rest framework and Python, unit testing was undertaken with Selenium. The app was successfully launched by the client, who gave special thanks to the consultants and acknowledged the diligence and attention to detail they brought to the project.
Example 2: Application framework extension
auticon supported a technology company to extend their existing framework for one of their clients, adding some new features such as retail ordering and catalogue services.
Our consultants delivered the requested extensions utilising the Microsoft technology stack. The agile delivery involved MS SQL, CSS and C# development. The development was successfully completed with a fast turnaround.
Compliance & Reporting
Example 1: Review of a credit portfolio system
A FinTech start-up asked auticon to provide a security analysis against their proposed target solution.
The work involved vulnerability and threat analysis and an assessment of the proposed service against BS 27001. The technology was hosted on AWS utilising a Python based solution. Thanks to ours consultants’ logical approach and their attention to detail, numerous potential exposures were highlighted and corrected prior to the launch of the service.
