providing consulting and implementation
services in the fields of e-commerce and
business intelligence.
Our staff can look back at 20 years of project experience. As a matter of course, we always strive to meet the ever-changing demands placed on us. Having been involved with e-commerce from the start, we have solutions for nearly all digital challenges.
We at Striped Giraffe are not merely content with completing a job - we are interested in the business models and backgrounds of our clients. In order to do this and to achieve long-term success, we have to ask the right and sometimes uncomfortable questions.

Philosophy
Since Striped Giraffes do not exist in nature, we have deliberately chosen this name for our company rather than choosing it on the spur of the moment.
This name accurately reflects our vision and mission and the resulting commitment to our clients and their goals. [+]

Since Striped Giraffes do not exist in nature, we have deliberately chosen this name for our company rather than choosing it on the spur of the moment.

This name accurately reflects our vision and mission and the resulting commitment to our clients and their goals.

The long neck of the giraffe is representative of the overview we must have in this fast-moving IT market and the e-commerce environment in particular. Innovations are changing the field of e-business at a speed never experienced before, and it affects all the processes, products and synergies of our clients. We provide our clients with advice and support, and together we find innovative ways to satisfy both their requirements as well as those of the underlying processes. All this is carried out with the necessary effectiveness and speed.

We develop solutions that challenge the mainstream, enabling our clients to differentiate themselves clearly from the competition. In order to do this, we scrutinise every aspect of their existing approach and planned future direction. We want to help you identify and reach your goals - no matter how difficult the task in hand. We thrive on the challenge of getting the difficult or seemingly impossible done. This is why the giraffe in our name does have stripes rather than the common spots.

The processes used by Striped Giraffe to implement IT projects are almost always flexible. We combine the best from Kanban, Scrum, pair programming and other processes.

We understand that the only thing that can be taken for granted in our projects is change. With e-commerce specifically, work on projects can commence relatively quickly, as soon as we agree on the main functions and features. [+]

The processes used by Striped Giraffe to implement IT projects are almost always flexible. We combine the best from Kanban, Scrum, pair programming and other processes.

We understand that the only thing that can be taken for granted in our projects is change. With e-commerce specifically, work on projects can commence relatively quickly, as soon as we agree on the main functions and features. At the same time, our clients have the right to change their mind about the agreed range of functions in the course of the project, and our development work must respond flexibly to these changing requirements. We are prepared for this and see this as a challenge rather than a burden.

In the specification phase, Striped Giraffe uses the services of technical project managers, allowing our clients to already get a feel for the possibilities, opportunities, costs, potential obstacles and alternatives at the planning stage.

We like short iteration cycles of two to four weeks. We also like to be in close contact with customers at every stage of the project in order to obtain as detailed feedback as possible. At every stage of the implementation, project management capable of providing information about the three important aspects of a project - duration, cost and scope. This gives all decision makers planning security and confidence.

Partnerships
Partnerships
While Striped Giraffe has strong expertise in e-commerce and ETL environment, we maintain partnerships at various levels. The reason for this is simple: we know that by working together, we can achieve our goals faster and more effectively.

hybris

In the 20 years of our existence, we have worked with various software solutions in the e-commerce field. We have particular respect for hybris Software, which we have been supporting all through their development path.

hybris provides our clients with a framework which makes it possible to implement requirements in much shorter time than it is the case with other providers. hybris offers many powerful features "out-of-the-box" allowing our clients to achieve their goals without major adjustments.

What is more, the generic nature of the framework makes it easier to implement individual requirements. The possibilities with respect to implementation into existing IT systems are endless. As a result of the acquisition by SAP completed in 2013, hybris will benefit from synergy effects, which will bring additional functionality to users and strengthen its long-term future.

Striped Giraffe is a silver partner of hybris, which offers its services throughout Europe and cooperates with Deloitte on projects worldwide.

informatica

Informatica PowerCenter is the Rolls-Royce in the ETL field, and we have over ten years' experience of working with its premium software. Our projects in this area range from simple interfaces to complex data hubs and DWH or large migration projects.

Striped Giraffe has taken a lead on the first two Informatica projects in the European market - Proactive monitoring for PowerCenter.

Striped Giraffe is a registered Informatica partner.

While we can deliver projects across the entire production chain, we at Striped Giraffe sill like to enter into strategic partnerships with the best, enabling us to deliver optimised solutions for our clients.

For example, our preferred partner in the consulting field is Deloitte. Among our partners are also various implementation partners from other software fields and hosting providers with which we, as well as our clients, have had positive experiences.

Services

The range of services offered by Striped Giraffe
covers the entire life cycle of application

We listen to our customers and, together, we develop ideas for the future. Striped Giraffe is interested in the day-to-day business of its clients, and increase our expertise by learning from the resulting findings. This is at the core of our strategy consulting.

This gives rise to tension between best practice approaches and the optimisation and implementation paths. We are always surprised by the good solutions that individuals in company come up with. Our responsibility is to collect these ideas and combine them with our knowledge of technology and experience from other industry sectors.

In this regard, we like to make use of our strong partnership with Deloitte Digital that is recognised for its expertise in all areas of consulting.

Each project requires an in-depth analysis, which includes the understanding of the current business model of the client, project requirements and the precise specifications of the project. We want to be our clients' sparring partner and assist with the tasks in hand by asking targeted questions or making concrete suggestions.

We expect our analysts to be able to bridge the gap between business and IT. The mere translation of abstract requirements into a concrete narrative is by no means deemed sufficient. We also offer a deep understanding of processes and interfaces to IT systems, preparation of charts and much more.

We like to think of our analysts as representatives of our clients in the world of IT. In this way, we can avoid unpleasant surprises with regard to the implementation results.

At Striped Giraffe, we take particular care to appointing project managers who have a deep understanding of IT. This core competence significantly reduces development time and costs for the client.

Why? Project managers with IT background can assess the project requirements and their execution more accurately and thus save our clients valuable time.

In the case of smaller projects, our project managers often take on the role of business analysts. Moreover, they are responsible for the execution and delivery of the entire project, the ongoing communication and therefore, the expectation and change management.

Striped Giraffe's project managers manage and protect the development team and are the central point of contact for clients.

"Only ordinary at first glance"

From the perspective of implementation, Striped Giraffe divides B2C in two key areas: basic functionalities and individual requirements. In the first area, our clients expect features such as catalogues, wish-lists, checkout processes, user accounts containing all data and purchase overview, social media integration, SEO optimisation, etc. Our clients rightly expect not only for these features to be available per se but also for them to be offered through a framework as part of its basic functionality. [+]

From the perspective of implementation, Striped Giraffe divides B2C in two key areas: basic functionalities and individual requirements. In the first area, our clients expect features such as catalogues, wish-lists, checkout processes, user accounts containing all data and purchase overview, social media integration, SEO optimisation, etc. Our clients rightly expect not only for these features to be available per se but also for them to be offered through a framework as part of its basic functionality.

In contrast, individual requirements can consist of specific business processes and the integration of solutions into a company's IT system. In this area, clients can rely on our specific expertise in the fields of consulting, analysis and implementation.

A focus on individuality and visibility of our clients builds a solid foundation for future success. In order to ensure that this foundation is strong, we pay particular attention to the field of B2C.

"Process-driven e-commerce"

The basic functionalities of B2C are also included in B2B. In all other respects, however, B2B goes much deeper and is very much process-driven and closely integrated in the legacy systems of the participants and the company itself.

Striped Giraffe believes that B2B will be the fastest growing e-commerce market in the future, as it offers enormous opportunities to optimise competitive advantages.

In this respect, we again favour hybris software given that, as a framework, it offers the fastest implementation of the individual requirements of companies as well as high degree of flexibility. [+]

We have been involved over time in developing the basic B2B functionalities of hybris, and we have also implemented them in their very first projects. At the same time, we are aware that individual expectations of dedicated B2B may be considerably more complex.

The Striped Giraffe team members have developed the first shopping community based on hybris software. The client was the global leader in the so-called "end-of-lifecycle" products based in France. The requirements in terms of product purchasing, content enrichment, and presentation of data to the community posed a particular challenge.
Using the tools provided and then adjusted by hybris software, all company processes were redefined during the implementation process.

Our employees have been involved in this field since BI first became an established term. We are not only involved in the processing of client data, but also the monitoring of the entire process of data processing. We take all business and technical aspects into consideration.

Data quality is an important factor in data collection and delivery. As a result, this process is analysed and monitored from the moment data is created through to the display of reports. In addition, the obtained data must be filed in a structured manner that allows for it to be transferred or migrated to other systems. [+]

Mein Paket

The online market place MeinPaket.de is among the three most successful online shopping portals in Germany. Having been conceptually prepared by Deutsche Post DHL in 2010, MeinPaket.de, which is based on hybris, was realised in early 2011. Within six months, the whole application, including all essential functions were able to go live just in time for the Christmas business. Since then, the software has been continuously optimised to offer additional added value to the client.

For the first 18 months, hybris oversaw the implementation with a 25-strong team and subsequently handed over the partnership for further development.

Both founders, as well as several employees of Striped Giraffe took on key roles on the hybris team at the time, including responsibility for design, architecture and delivery. We continue to be involved in parts of the marketplace development and follow this success story with a sense of pride and excitement.

Together with DHL we have redefined the subject of flexibility and agility; we developed much more efficient methods that we continue to shape for our approach up to today.

Striped Giraffe likes to employ people with personality - including freelancers and permanent employees.
We are well educated, communicative, and we always have the interests of our clients in mind.
We build a bridge between business and IT, because we are curious and passionate about our tasks.

Resting on your laurels effectively means stopping moving forward. What we want from our staff is commitment! In order to preserve this motivation, we protect our employees in a particular way - we feel an obligation towards each individual team member.

In other words, we are not interested in hierarchies in the usual sense - what we see are people who perform certain tasks in their respective roles.
