White swan, dark waters!

The continual struggle in and around software development and implementation commonly witnessed is avoidable much of the time. The myriad problems and the resultant pain isn’t inevitable… Indeed we intend to prevent such problems well in time.

We can save you much time, expense, confusion and possibly nightmares in non-trivial  software endeavours. Do yourself a favour, mail info@swan-speed.com

Thinking outside the box is easy, since we are already outside the box.


We bring extensive expertise deep enough to get to the bottom of knotty problems. We have all over 20 years of experience, BUT it isn’t the years past, but the variety of our contributions which make up our mastery. CORBA-based ORBS,  MMoG, Telecom CDR processing, compiler, engine control units, rule engines, to recommendation expert systems, to much more mundane business applications we have handled wide swathes of software systems.

Swanspeed Consulting is compact enough for our collective extertise to be actually employable, without getting lost in some byzantine knowledge management system. Yet, we have easy recourse to a wider network of expertise if and when needed.
