Bespoke solutions are usually technology implementation patterns that are production tested and become the basis for quick turn-around build requests. The usual drivers are a technology manager not having sufficient talent depth or severely constrained resource bandwidth. Technology engagements usually have a duration anywhere from 8 weeks to about 6 months. These engagements are focused on replicating alternate technologies in-house cost effectively.
Many recent requests are focused on rapid COVID-19 risk mitigation. For example, authorities under public pressure to find tested solutions seek to leverage the Apple|Google Exposure Notification Framework (A|G ENF). The embedded system allows Government Health Authorities to quickly stand up back-end Contact Tracing and Data Analytics solutions for their constituents. The critical delivery factor in engagement is efficiently reducing the impact of severe social and economic disruption. The expectation is that when implemented, the solutions integrate into existing Contact Tracing processes seamlessly.
