I am Thomas Smart, a Singapore based independent solution architecture consultant operating under the business name Binary Thinktank. I specialise in Serverless projects and offer services such as ideation, project scoping, design, risk mitigation, budget planning and vendor evaluation for digital projects.
My focus and added-value is on consultancy, design and scoping digital projects. I am also happy to help with evaluating and briefing technical vendors - including contract terms and recommended risk margins. With both a business and technical background, I can bridge the communication barriers between clients and developers and educate and manage expectations on both fronts.
The approach I take seeks to find a balance between Waterfall and Agile. While for the most part following Agile practices, I include more research at the start of the project, focusing on those areas that are likely to have the biggest impact on the timeline. Remaining known risks are mitigated through a calculated risk margin based on over a decade of historical data. An easy-to-follow scoping template is available to give project teams a practical means to implement the approach and become more Agile with their projects.
I do not offer project management or development services.
