HOW IT WORKS
Our 4-step development process
From the initial discovery to application build, every stage of the development process is tailored to you.
(Scoping & Estimates)
- First, we work with your team to assess your goals and current systems.
- We'll assess the feasibility of your ideas and offer suggestions.
- Scope out the project timeline and estimate costs.
Discovery can take between 2 days and 8 weeks (depending on your needs and project complexity). Regardless of how long it takes, you'll get a business case that covers the key challenges and proposed solutions – from us.
(Sprint, Demo, Feedback)
Cut your time to market with Talk Think Do’s agile cloud-native development. We follow security best practices and deliver all projects in-keeping with an agile development methodology.
The delivery manager provides you with full visibility over the entire application build process with:
- Regular application demos
- Agile development sprint cycles
- And collaborative feedback sessions with our team
(Testing & Optimising)
- The initial application release
- User acceptance testing
- Feedback reviews
- Technical security, solutions and architecture reviews
- Assessing your application against Go/No-Go criteria to further tailor the application to your needs
Long-term, trusting partnerships are an essential part of how we work. Your application will go through as many iterations as required to ensure you receive your desired outcome.
We act as an extension of your team, providing expert maintenance and support throughout the application launch. This includes 30 days of free post-launch care.
Not every business will know all the features they want from the outset of their project. But thanks to our iterative approach, your application can continue to improve even post-launch.
Once the application is launched, you'll get full access to the source code, infrastructure, scripts – everything. So you can continue to maintain and improve the application yourself—or we can help you do that on an ongoing basis with our managed support services.

Frequently asked questions
What is cloud-native?
‘Cloud-native’ is a cloud-based approach towards application development. It refers to applications that are built for the cloud — rather than those that have been migrated from other networks. Cloud-native applications are generally more secure, reliable and cost-efficient.
As a Microsoft Solutions Partner, Talk Think Do does all of its development in Microsoft Azure.
What are the benefits of a cloud-native approach?
Cloud-native development provides improved scalability, flexibility and security compared to traditional models. It’s easier to spot and amend errors, as the code is written and tested in small portions.
Should I choose SaaS, custom build, or low-code development?
Cloud-native development won’t be the ideal solution for every business. SaaS and low-code solutions can both be effective, depending on what you aim to achieve and what internal resources you have. Visit our calculator page to find your best-fit solution.
Will we get ownership of the source code?
Yes — you always get a copy of the source code, whether you get it based on a license or IPR.
How much does it cost?
The cost of your application will vary depending on the project scope. Visit our pricing page to learn about our standard plans and contracts.
Do you do legacy-cloud migration?
No, we don’t do legacy to cloud migration. However, we can develop custom applications or help you modernise existing cloud systems.
