Every day, expectations grow for technology to help cut costs and increase the bottom line.
Our Team
Alexandru Cioconea leads our Technology Consulting Practice technical team. With 15 years’ experience across a full range of engineering, business and project management roles, Alexandru has a single and highly focused objective: help our clients drive greatest possible value out of their financial markets technology, through cutting edge DevOps & Continuous Delivery techniques.
Market Drivers
Every day, expectations grow for technology to help cut costs and increase the bottom line. CIOs are under pressure from the rest of the business to release software faster, with predictably higher quality and at reduced risk and resources outlay. Meanwhile, regulatory and internal compliance demands drive increased complexity. And there is a constant need to rationalise the technology stack and reduce TCO.
Client Need
Our clients need the benefits of tomorrow’s technology delivered to their operational environments today. They need DevOps enabled innovation combined with vendor technology expertise to gain optimum performance from vendor platforms. And they need non-vendor technology solutions expertise for a range of challenges, from higher quality of services and solutions to rapid delivery of product and technology innovation.
Our DevOps Approach

We deliver our approach to DevOps through our Phi Partners T2M (time to market) methodology – a carefully synchronised combination of skilled change management and engineering excellence. By enabling software development and IT operations to work together much more effectively, T2M transforms the promise of innovative approaches into measurably improved performance. By focusing on improving the delivery abilities of our clients’ people, by streamlining processes to eliminate waste and by optimising the technology landscape, we achieve predictable and sustainable efficiencies and real collaboration between contributors. The result is faster, secure and agile delivery across the SDLC. The reward is optimised relationships between time, cost and quality that deliver enhanced business value. The Phi Partners Technology Practice realises the promise of DevOps on vendor platforms, including Summit and Murex, as well as working right across the organisational map. Our T2M toolkit includes SAFe, Kanban, ITIL and Lean Six Sigma approaches. And our delivery expertise extends to credit risk and test automation applications, as well as bespoke responses to regulatory demands.
