Custom Samvera Development: DCE will develop a Samvera-based application that delivers the key features you’ve identified during the scoping phase. By developing the entire project collaboratively with your team, or through a focused hand-off phase at the end of the project, we work to ensure the appropriate knowledge transfer occurs to allow our clients to successfully sustain their Samvera solution without us.
Samvera Design & Scoping: We help you structure your Samvera project by conducting a structured set of meetings over two weeks. During that time, we work with your team to scope a full Samvera development plan, identify challenges and opportunities, draft an initial architecture, and develop high-level resource and time estimates. The output of these engagements is typically a phased project plan that your team or DCE can carry forward into an initial development phase.
Managed Samvera Cloud Instances: We provide hosted Samvera solutions based on Sufia and Avalon. Using Amazon Web Services cloud infrastructure, we get you up and running quickly. Our DevOps team manages critical security patches throughout the year and ensures your Samvera instance stays up to-date with two planned upgrade windows each year.
Public Samvera Camps: We offer open enrollment Samvera Camps at least once a year and often more frequently. Samvera Camp provides a 4-day introduction to all things Samvera focused on providing developers the skills and tools they need to successfully build Samvera solutions. You can find out more about the class on our Samvera Camp page.
Private & Customized Samvera Camps: We will happily lead a private Samvera Camp for your team exclusively. We are able to customize private training to focus on the specific topics most critical to making your project a success. This focused training time is also a great way to enhance cohesion and collaboration within newly formed Samvera teams.
Samvera Jumpstart: During a one or two week period, our team pairs with yours to jumpstart your Samvera development or implementation project. Focused, intensive collaboration allows us to get your project off the ground and establish initial momentum for your team. The close communication also allows us to better understand your environment and surface technical challenges and potential risks early, which reduces surprises and improves project outcomes.
Other Services: In addition to the engagements listed above we can also offer short-term design, implementation, consulting, and code-review services.
