Diamond Edge IT: For Increased ROI in developing APIs

Julie Russell, CEO
Modernization is the key to stay abreast of the fast-paced and ever-changing technology landscape. The market is fiercely competitive, and one cannot afford to be lagging in the race for customer acquisition and retention. Organizations must evolve as per the customer demand continually, and this needs to be effortless as well as cost-effective. Rapid iterative development methodology serves the effortless part of the process; however, not many can deliver a cost-effective solution. The challenge is in delivering maximum value through effective and productive use of each iteration.

“In 10 years of working in the services side, we realized there are a lot of gaps in the application development and integration market,” says Julie Russell, CEO, Diamond Edge IT. “We started pivoting towards a product to actually help bridge these gaps that the customers have been struggling for years.” Thus began the journey of New York-based Diamond Edge IT. Over the course of their consultancy using integration products like MuleSoft, Diamond Edge IT focused in on a vital painpoint - the delivery time of applications.

This led to the development of their product, the Nine Gold® Platform. A large part of their delivery on site with customers is helping them on the best approach to deliver their project using best practices and linking that into the operational side of the business. Diamond Edge IT recognized that although each company is unique and has different requirements, there is a subset of repeatable patterns and procedures that stay the same. They started to build these patterns into their new platform.

Nine Gold® provides customers a new way to rapidly develop applications, moving away from the traditional methods of drag and drop and wizards and using the customers own data definition to generate the code.

This means reduced human error and puts the development back in the hands of the business so they can concentrate on business requirements rather than repetitively typing data fields.


In alpha state, our platform was able to give us approximately 800% return, which is pretty amazing

Though the platform is slated to release early next year, Diamond Edge IT was able to test the efficacy of the platform in one of their client environments. The task in hand was to generate APIs for a banking company integrated into downstream legacy systems. They implemented the project from the alpha version of the platform, and the result they achieved was surprising. “We were able to generate twenty-two API’s in three weeks with one developer,” exclaims Julie. “In alpha state, our platform was able to give us approximately 800% return, which is pretty amazing.”

"Nine Gold® provides customers a new way to rapidly develop applications, supplementing traditional methods of drag and drop and wizards by using the customers own data definition to generate the code with built in best practices"

In general, the company estimates that 400% ROI can be achieved using the Nine Gold® Platform. Diamond Edge IT will provide an offering for their platform in the Cloud or On Premises, and additionally gives companies an option for a dedicated services team to take the project from rapid development to delivery. Rest assured, their capable team of architects, which is the entire workforce of Diamond Edge IT, will help organizations deliver faster APIs, employ less force, and achieve more significant ROI.
