What is Agile Team as a Service and what are its benefits?



With more than 21 years of experience in software development, at Imagemaker we have developed the Imagemaker Framework, a work methodology that puts the customer at the center of our strategy, generating a unique experience in our service called Agile Team as a Service ( ATaaS) and that has allowed us to accompany the leaders of the banking, telecommunications and retail industries in their success.


The Agile Team as a Service consists of delivering specialized development services under an agile framework (mainly Scrum), according to the particular needs of each client. With more than 300 developers specializing in different technologies, our experience in development and consulting in the field allows us to evaluate and understand the technological challenges of our clients, form suitable work teams in a maximum time of two weeks, and ensure high-quality delivery sustained over time.


With this, we focus on meeting the objectives and key results of our clients through the early and continuous delivery of (software with) value, pursuing excellence, and promoting the continuous improvement of our teams through early feedback.


Here are some benefits of the Agile Team as a Service:


1. Committed work team:


The Agile Team as a Service goes beyond staff positioning or better known as Staff Augmentation and is that one of the biggest differences lies in the fact that the first allows the team to adopt the client's business objectives as its own, expanding the range of action of their responsibilities, expanding the limits and generating a greater commitment when it comes to achieving results.


2. Guaranteed management and operational continuity:


We have witnessed that since a whole team is in charge of meeting the business objectives, the performance of the project is cohesive and has better results. Each of its members will work to carry out actions such as continuous improvement sessions, constant training, backups, and doing everything necessary so that the result of the project is of excellence and that the goals are met within the established deadlines.


In addition, each of its members has the tools and is prepared to work with updated frameworks and work practices. All this ensures quality deliveries with a low incident rate.


3. Value proposition at its best:


The teams help us to implement the value proposition in a better way so that the client can concretely see the differentiators. Currently, there is a pull of value elements that Imagemaker offers its clients, however, there is also a proactive analysis of pain points that can be addressed through elements that are added to the predefined value proposition.


4. Product discoveries:


Many times customers detect a need but do not know exactly how to solve it, however, the Agile Team as a Service makes available teams capable of also helping in the product discovery process, landing ideas in a backlog to later develop until delivering a product until it goes into production.


5. Continuous improvement of digital products:


A great difference that makes Agile Team as a Service stand out is that developments are understood to be live products and, therefore, teams are trained to continue adding features that add value to the customer experience. In addition to carrying out operational monitoring, that is, a follow-up is made so that the product or service works correctly, but at the same time, they are empowered to measure the value it delivers, identify problems or improvements and constantly seek the best solution to generate good outcomes in developments that will be used by thousands of customers.


6. Teams under contexts with uncertainty:


On many occasions, teams must work hand in hand with the internal collaborators of each client and adapt to the reality of each company, embracing and facing changes. Agile Team as a Service team are trained to communicate assertively, seek solutions, and work in changing and complex environments in terms of interaction and management to achieve the goals of each project in the best possible way. They are also tailored to the customer's needs and ecosystem, which may vary depending on their business and organization.
