Agile By Design
    Welcome to AGILE BY DESIGN.

    The scale, sophistication, and speed of modern business require measurable outcomes, with a simultaneous understanding of the fact that no two customers’ are the same.

    We live in a world where things can be mobilised in a few hours and newness created every few seconds. How can we keep on working as we did yesterday? Information technology is the heart of modern business and sometime requires a contrarian approach to crafting solutions to be relevant whilst meeting our customers’ needs.

    This is why AGILE BY DESIGN is different. We leverage the best technologies and design solutions that are entirely fit for purpose.

    it’s all about your business and your needs

    The ABD Approach

    The ABD approach is consultative. It is all about your business and achieving your needs. Using the model of X-as-a-Service, our solutions are agile.

    We operate in the cloud, on premise or off-site - whichever addresses your needs best. ABD is also skilled in leveraging global reach, local support and cost-effective off-shore services.

    Mission Statement
    Mission Statement

    ABD’s mission is simple – through our experience we provide modern innovative solutions that increase business value.

About Agile by Design

About Agile By Design

At our essence, ABD is a services aggregator able to bridge the gap between strategy and execution and design solutions that increase value. We work hard to ensure that all of our solutions are measurable – whether technical, operational, or financial.


What is more, with ABD’s experience our customers are able to increase profitability, decrease operational expenses, and improve productivity for their businesses, while optimising solutions, consolidating where possible and driving efficiency for management and operations.


ABD’s Philosophy

The philosophy behind ABD is that the only constant is change; hence the need to be ‘agile by design’; to accept change as inevitable and use it to shape desired outcomes.

  • To attract, develop and retain the best people
  • Right first time, to ensure professional planning and execution and have pride in all we do
  • To nurture lifelong partnerships with customers and business partners
  • To lead and grow and be #1 in every domain we operate in whilst remaining entrepreneurial

ABD also has a strongly customer-centric approach to value engineering, and a prevailing sense of trust between IT and business. This, together with our reduced-risk-reduced-cost model, differentiates us in the market.

cloud needs based consulting

We pride ourselves on integrating our experience with trusted technologies to provide measurable outcomes. This is very different to the sales approach of yesteryear.

We refine our customers’ IT environments by understanding business applications and needs, and then apply our offerings to maximise opportunities and increase our customers’ competitive advantage. Along the way, we work to mitigate the risk that comes with change, systems, and processes.


ABD offers consulting services across different technology spheres, some traditional and others more forward thinking.

We apply a consultative approach in whichever manner suits your business best.

Whether you need to re-think your IT strategy, assess new technology, build information architecture, and manage the implementation of new technology or master global IT best practices, ABD can assist you.


With our hybrid approach, ABD is able to apply different vendor technologies where required.

Most vendors realise that, in order to be relevant in future, their products have to operate in conjunction with others – or even and extension to others.

Within environments like these, ABD recommends a solution to meet the need and conform to regulations.

needs based consulting

Not all solutions work best in the cloud and the choice often requires a trade-off between cloud and on premise solutions to optimise returns. With a needs driven analysis the required goals can be met.

on premise

The main factor that contributes to a company's success is the cost of implementation and time to market, so off shoring is one initiative that reduces costs while maintaining global touch. Lower operating costs also mean more investment in innovation.
