I would just like to say thank you for your excellent work with us on the cloud proof of concept. I really do believe this has helped O2 significantly to improve cost, quality and time to market (hours versus days to build environments) and the icing on the cake was to help us achieve the removal of test environments from the list of reasons why projects have failed to deliver this year.
I confirm THBS has been retained by Schneider Electric to manage and deliver the Integration Platform we are envisaging for SE that is being constructed on a SOA based architecture. This is a large and critical program that has multiple users and dependencies considering the scope and diverse activities of Schneider Electric. It will touch business units spread across the globe as we are a company spread out in more than 100 countries with 150,000 + people. We also work with an extensive Partner network that will progressively have access to services and products we use to automate service delivery.
Besides being a service engagement, where THBS guides us on architecture patterns, governance and is responsible for initial delivery with respect to designing and constructing a set of services that we can leverage and scale, THBS also helps us in product evaluation and selection. In this respect we have evaluated RepoPro, a THBS built product on Open Source that we find remarkably well suited and quite comparable to the leading off the shelf portfolio products, with the advantage of being able to configure and modify as needed for a particular need due to the open standards nature of the product construction. We are starting using this product and THBS is involved in assisting deployment and training where needed.
The level of skill, dedication and diligence exhibited by Torry Harris Consultants has always been exceptional. In all my dealings with them, they have never given up; even in the most difficult customer situations. They stick with the problem at hand until it is resolved; failure is not an option for them.
Working with Torry Harris has been a very positive experience, not only because of their capable and responsive client management, but certainly also as a result of the quality of the development and the people behind it. The project was completed satisfactorily, meeting all requirements set out by our team.
We were extremely impressed with Torry Harris Business Solution's skill level in an area of technology that is very important to our business. These skills are very hard to find, world wide, and Torry Harris Business Solutions have world-class skills - probably the leading supplier in the field. Based on their skills we have commissioned further development work.
I've worked with most of the major multi-shore development partners in my time, and have experienced the common frustrations of impressive sales pitch followed by underwhelming delivery capability and inflexible change management, but Torry Harris were very different. They worked with us as if they were part of the team, constantly suggesting improvements and taking the initiative where necessary. Not one of their staff was someone I wouldn't have hired myself and that consistent quality and positive attitude showed in the results. THBS are a great company to partner with at all levels.
Just wanted to let you know what a terrific job the Torry Harris staff have done regarding assisting me in moving my Middleware and messaging agenda forward. The engineering expertise your staff brings to the table, along with the professionalism and spirit of being team players, has allowed me to hit my goals the past two years. They were key, most importantly, in helping to drive us to messaging "dial tone" shared services, which are being deployed globally throughout the firm.
The experiences of working with your company, both the high power technical expertise and the competitive pricing you offer, is one reason I look forward to a continued and fruitful relationship with your firm.
They have attacked the issues with enthusiasm and showed a level of dedication way beyond what could reasonably be expected. Staying until 21:00 - 22:00 on most nights over the last couple of weeks and in some cases to 02:00 - 03:00 in the morning to get the job done.
