Empanda stands for lightweight integrated approach

balloonCustom IT solutions for businesses. Do away with waste and overhead and take the shortest path from your requirements to simple, working software. Communicate directly from the business to the developers growing a shared model.
Integrated means developers work directly with the stakeholders to create solutions. Lightweight means no intermediary products for analysis or design, just the working software.

Cheap and cheerful

Any project will always fill the time and money budget alloted and then some. Purposely restricting these by having short iterations is key to staying on track.

Beware, complexity costs.

Adding business value

Focus on the thing that adds most value now, make it happen, then move to the next thing. This is the incremental approach to always add value every step of the way.


KISS

Keep it simple, stupid

SMART

S - Specific

M - Measurable

A - Achievable

R - Relevant

T - Time-boxed

DRY

Don't repeat yourself

Automate

If the software can do it, don't waste your own time on it.

Just do it mentality

Dive in and get going with your ideas. Just doing it will make things more concrete and provides great feedback on what works and what needs work. Remember, it's software, you can make it do anything and can always change it! (refactoring is a great thing).

Action speaks louder than words so don't mill over your ideas but make them happen.

Control

Businesses today depend on having the right IT solutions in place to support and enable their work. Extending and improving solutions should be a collaborative and fun effort of business users and developers together.

Get your business agility by controlling your IT agility. Simple setups are easy to control.
