ERNI stands for Swiss Software Engineering to boost people and businesses in the innovation of software-based products and services on a global platform. ERNI clients profit from method-based consulting services, partnership-oriented technology, and cost-conscious delivery services. Since the foundation in Switzerland in 1994, sharing know-how to establish collective skills and focusing on economically sound engineering solutions played a key role and are the basis for successful software projects.

The clients are ranging from software delivery organisations to multi-disciplinary teams creating complex cyber-physical products. The ERNI SAFe® Program Consultants (SPC) are also trained to use and coach Applied SAFe®.

Organisations going SAFe® often lack the ability to implement SAFe® as it is described and freely available. With Applied SAFe® these companies can create their version of SAFe® which makes the implementation much smoother. Additionally, with Applied SAFe® it can be shown that all regulatory requirements can be met. This also enables industries in regulated environments to go SAFe®.

This collaboration supports our commitment to foster scaled agility on an enterprise level, especially for companies working in a regulated environment. Applied SAFe is our fully-fledged implementation of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) as a process model. Applied SAFe is based on and kept in sync with the actual SAFe version by Scaled Agile Inc. (SAI). Our product is officially approved by Scaled Agile Inc, the inventors of the Scaled Agile Framework. Implemented as a comprehensive, executable process model it includes all roles, activities, templates, guidelines, milestones, and phases in order to bring the framework to life; including metrics and tailoring. Applied SAFe is a ‘ready to go with’ implementation and allows organizations to start using the framework immediately.

Because of this, I really know what great work they are able to deliver. ERNI showed a great partner commitment from the beginning by sending 10 highly qualified agile consultants into the Applied SAFe Quality Manager training, and now they are certified.
