Often times, developers from different companies come together to work on a single project in a mixed environment, in a process known as Joint Application Development. JAD usually involves one or more consulting companies working together with the end-user client and their employees. JAD is a particular project style for custom soultion development, and custom solutions are what Liquid Mercury Solutions does best!
One of the major purposes of JAD is to allow knowledge sharing. For Liquid Mercury Solutions, this usually means that we share our expertise with SharePoint and you share your business knowledge with us. This win-win flow of information helps us to work in unison to design the perfect custom solutions for your company.
JAD is most effective where you, as the customer, have some developers of your own who have special knowledge about your business, but who lack the level of SharePoint experience necessary to make the project a success. Liquid Mercury Solutions has experience working in intimate JAD groups comprised of our staff and the customer, as well as with larger teams consisting of several companies working in unison, as is the case with larger scale government projects.
The JAD project approach is equally suitable to developing for on-premises SharePoint farms and SharePoint Online in the Office 365 environment. For cloud deployments, we can be of particular help by providing you a safe Office 365 environment (outside of your own subscription) to support development projects.
