Competence Center

As part of Crossjoin’s success built over the years, Competence Center is a key change on the approach towards multi-technology challenges

In Crossjoin Competence Center, our subject matter experts collaborate to deliver our services and provide enthusiast mentoring to less experienced consultants in specific technologies.

Our delivery model, with competence center, nearshore or on premises, allows Crossjoin to offer the “right sizing” and the “right people” for the challenges ahead without compromising the commitment, expert knowledge and quality delivery.

Our locations Lisbon, Aveiro, Porto, Santiago do Chile and with closer collaboration with Universities and Institutes, our main focus is to continue to expand across the country. Our purpose is to hire and build competencies for the future in a field where there is a major gap between market needs and graduates.

Unique Service Model

We globally deliver Performance, Monitoring, Development and Infrastructure services.

Our delivery model, with competence center, nearshore or on premises, allows Crossjoin to offer the “right sizing” and the “right persons” for the challenges ahead without compromising the commitment, expert knowledge and quality delivery.

Crossjoin Competence Center relies on a figure called TSM (Technical Service Manager) whose role is played by Crossjoin specialist or the Client and it is intended as the name implies, to facilitate the communication between different stakeholders as a main point of contact, execute requirements gathering and scope definition, manages customers’ requests and expectations, leads, quality of delivery and confirmation of results and achievements.

Additionally, the main goal of the TSM is to ensure equal levels of focus, energy and attention placed on a project or in a mission by the teams on the Competence Center as well as the teams on site at the client premises.

At an intermediate level, there should be a Competence Center team leader, depending on the Line of Business, can be:

  • Senior Performance Architect for Quality Managed Services
  • Senior Database/Applications Administrator for Infrastructure Managed Services
  • Senior Software Architect for Application Managed Services

Regardless of who is, with the required seniority and experience, would be responsible for making the bridge between customers team’s and Competence Center’s technical teams. This consultant would be responsible, alongside with the TSM (Technical Service Manager, on defining the success criteria, the requirements gathering and the planned actions for the Competence Center team members. Crossjoin Competence Center team of specialists is able to respond to issues end-to-end with excellence, quality, on-time and within budget.

It's the best of both worlds where customers benefit from:

Delivering Model

The Crossjoin Sevice success is done through methodologies perfected along years of consulting experience and human resources with high technological expertize. The Competence Center Model ensures “right sizing” and the “right persons” for each challenge. There should be no difference between On Premise Mission versus Competence Center Model as all the right persons are set to specific stages of the “workflow”, as follows:
