Strategies for Success


It's not just what we do. It's how we do it.

PRINCIPLES

Our Client’s Success is Our Success

Data Bakery concentrates on maximizing a client’s business value. If a client succeeds in attaining their business goals, Data Bakery succeeds.

A Firm, Not a Shop

Data Bakery is a firm focused on treating each client like a partner rather than just a short-term opportunity. We care about our client’s business as if it were our own.

One-Stop Service

Unlike "code shops", we don’t force clients to painstakingly assemble their own solutions. We supply clients with all the services they need to form a complete solution.

PLATFORMS

Data Bakery builds mobile, web and desktop applications. Through our network of partners, we also provide hardware solutions, such as embedded software and hardware design and manufacture.

Data Bakery focuses on building products – carefully crafted and engineered systems – that address your business needs.

CONTINUOUS INNOVATION

We believe that innovation is a key ingredient in the success of any business.

Data Bakery applies over a decade of startup experience to each project in order to give it the edge you need to succeed.

A THOUSAND WORDS

Traditional software development tends to be based on producing exhaustive written specifications. Usually, this process results in a document that is never read and quickly outdated. Instead, Data Bakery focuses on visual mockups and Agile development.

Mockups depict the system, as it will be delivered, in a visual form that is readily understood. Agile development focuses on regular, iterative discovery of value and insight, which greatly reduces the risk and cost typically associated with custom software development.

PROJECT TERMS

Data Bakery offers fixed-bid proposals whenever possible. We believe that clients need and deserve a predictable pricing structure. Each proposal is structured using a proprietary system that makes it simple to add and remove features "a la carte".

DELIVERY

We believe in the Agile approach to software development. Once development commences, we deliver working software on a regular basis – usually once a week – beginning as early as possible.

Since building software from scratch involves many unknowns, we expect and plan for changes in each project's feature set. Weekly deliveries provide early insight and our proprietary proposal system makes project scope adjustment simple and straightforward.

SOLUTION

Data Bakery is looking for people who know they aren't always the smartest people in the room. They know each client is an expert when it comes to his or her job or idea. They ask questions, listen deeply and seek insight. They quickly grasp the landscape of a new discipline and apply their own deep knowledge of software and systems to its complexities. They work alongside clients to craft solutions that are economical, innovative and effective.

Data Bakery also partners with like-minded local contractors using our proprietary development processes. Together, we provide custom software solutions to area entrepreneurs and companies in a way that sets a completely new standard for predictability, quality and value.

Are you ready?

You might be Data Bakery material if:

  • You are a seasoned software developer living in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex and value ownership in projects from concept to deployment. 
  • You're interested in the world around you and continuously strive to improve your craftsmanship.
  • You see complex problems as opportunities to craft innovative solutions.
  • You tackle complex problems methodically and incrementally. You don't try to build Rome in a day.
