Why Herzum?

There must be a reason why some of the largest IT organizations in the world require our advice, why software product developers and technology vendors call us to review their strategy and architecture. We are proud of what we have done and are doing for the industry. Herzum consultants have always been at the forefront of using IT to obtain pragmatic results.

We have been among the first to successfully adopt the various new technology waves, including the latest J2EE, .NET and Web Services technologies, not for the sake of adoption, but to resolve concrete business problems in the most cost-effective way.
We have literally defined what new architectural styles are and can do, in particular component-based approaches and service-oriented approaches.

We were focusing on agility long before the term became a buzz-word. Today, we know how to help you scale agility to any organizational dimension, any project complexity. In a repeatable, cost-effective way. We defined what Agile Software Manufacturing is about.

We have the only third generation approach to enterprise architecture (COSM Enterprise), and can help you truly link Business Strategy, IT Strategy, Enterprise Architecture and individual projects.
We have been and are busy extending making software architecture repeatable, participating to the most crucial standardization activities, pushing the limits of Model-Driven Architectures to resolve bigger and more complex problems, creating the architectural theory that our field so badly needs.

We have brought software product development and software product suite development to a new level. Repeatable. Cost-effective. Long-lasting.
