AWS have been releasing new cloud computing facilities at a tremendous pace in recent years and Designing Tomorrow are busy applying them to our customers' business processes.
Designing Tomorrow aren't much interested in moving boxes into the cloud. Rather, we've always used Platform as a Service clouds and API's to deliver business functionality, without new servers for our customers to manage. AWS's "serverless" architecture called Lambda, lets us build the business logic and microservices our customers need, whilst letting AWS look after the hardware, networks and platform software and security. Our efforts go into your business logic and information presentation but our customers' businesses also benefit from high standards of managed infrastructure, which would be far more expensive for us to provide for them.
For example ... we use AWS Lambda, API Gateway and AWS Cloudwatch to reliably integrate CRM systems with multiple web sites.
... we use AWS Lambda, API Gateway, AWS Cloudwatch and AWS SNS to monitor our own SaaS products.
... we are applying AWS Lambda, AWS SES and AWS Cloudwatch to ensure customer notifications by our clients, use SES's feedback to respond to subscribers' decisions to unsubscribe.
... we also use cloud APIs in some of our machine learning and predictive business logic
Serverless cloud computing services have brought a whole new realm of automation & decision support possibilities into the reach of 2 month project budgets. If you have a requirement which we could help you with please call us to discuss it. If the innovation would make your business more competitive ... That's our favorite kind of project.
salesforce.com built one of the most comprehensive "Platform as a Service" based business systems, yet. Designing Tomorrow have been customising our customers' salesforce.com accounts since 2011. We are usually brought in after basic setup and training has been completed and the business wants to integrate salesforce.com with other systems and have their own business-logic and related data added.
As well as data integration, we build custom user-interfaces.
For example ... we have built bespoke user interfaces to make customer information more compact and easily expandable (for use by staff answering calls).
... we have built bespoke ordering pages.
... bespoke calendar viewing and editing tools.
... lots of database Apex triggers
... lots of Apex web services
... force.com Sites development. Some large scale and big brand work ... as well as special purpose responder pages.
So we are not salesforce.com generalists but customisation and integration specialists, enabling better real-time business systems to be implemented.

Machine learning and particularly "deep artificial neural networks" have been all over the news in recent years. Although Designing Tomorrow understand much of the maths behind modern machine learning ... we don't need to. Major cloud computing services are competing to provide the work of many accomplished boffins ... as a cloud service.
As well predictive text in our interface designs we are increasingly working with text analysis and chat interfaces. It is almost inevitable that speech interfaces have a major future in business systems. Rather than starting from zero, we can now leverage the pre-learning offered by cloud vendors' APIs and focus on building the logic which your business needs to respond more efficiently and make more informed decisions.
Whether its Amazon® Lex , Google® Dialogflow or another service ... being able to determine the intent of a line of chat, an incoming e-mail, a speech act or a new helpdesk case, has far more applications than shopping.
... A system can attempt to route and enquiry, if it can guess the sender's intent.
... Databases of text can be sorted / filtered based on guessed intent.
... Of course automated / self-service is also enabled partly or completely by these services
Designing Tomorrow are available both to integrate these new APIs into your existing systems. We will also plan and run projects to prepare training data for the machine learning process. In some cases ongoing machine learning will also require tools to be developed, as part of our services and projects.
Modern machine learning is bringing whole new realm of automation & decision support possibilities into the reach of 4 month project budgets. If you have a requirement which we could help you with please call us to discuss it. If the innovation would make your business more competitive ... That's our favorite kind of project. Will this new technology transform what is possible in your line of business?
In this example of a chart, there is information about 96 quarter hours in a day. The equivalent table (or even worse, a pure text equivalent) would easily fill several pages.
Using SVG vector graphics, graphics of any complexity (which can be zoomed in and out) can be displayed in real-time, when you refresh the page. No need to copy and paste from your spreadsheet, your salesforce.com page can provide charts, icons and pictograms from data available now.
Much as Designing Tomorrow like aesthetic design too ... visual information can enable your staff to absorb tables-full of information in an instance, enabling them to have a more relevant conversation with customers, suppliers and managers, within seconds of picking up a phone.
Not enough information in a static chart? Talk to us about your data-driven motion-graphics / animation requirements.
Designing Tomorrow are "full-stack" web developers. i.e. we write the page layout, styling, graphics, motion graphics, database integration and third-party systems integration.
We need all of those capabilities and more for our salesforce.com customisation work and for building web portals using other cloud platforms.
We are however cloud platform specialists and browser-templates oriented, so we're not the first people to call about your million lines of PHP code.
... Do call us about integrating data between systems (e.g. salesforce.com and your PHP web site)
... Do call us about visualisation graphics, art graphics, 3D, motion graphics and FX.
