Capability

Since before the company's formation, Kappa's principal, Bill Smith, has helped roll out solutions for a number of clients in the businesses of international banking, oil, equities & derivatives trading, pensions & life assurance, electricity & gas supply, telecommunications, travel and logistics.

Design and development of large, multi-user systems featuring high volumes of transactions and operating over wide-area networks and the Internet is a speciality. Kappa Solutions has experience of all phases of the development life-cycle and is committed to best practices such as good design (particularly using OO-methods and n-tier concepts), configuration control and build/test/delivery procedures.

Kappa Solutions can provide the resources to lead, mentor or assist your development team either on a full or part-time basis and on or off-site. Please contact us to discuss.
