Galatia’s Background


Our Company

Galatia Web Services, Inc. (, a leading Silicon Valley Internet consulting firm, specializes in helping customers create a powerful database-driven web site or enhance their existing Internet presence. Using the latest, most powerful Internet platforms, we connect digital business processes to a web-centric presence so that the result is greater than the sum of its components.

Originally founded in 1995, Galatia has adapted to changing circumstances while maintaining a consistent corporate character and identity that places client satisfaction at the top of our priorities. Galatia is large enough to implement complex applications while small enough to provide personal service and accountability. At the end of 2001, several former Galatia employees formed a new entity, Galatia Web Services, Inc., to continue offering outstanding service to present and future clients at this location.

Web-based innovation, including e-commerce, progresses at such a rapid pace that there is a need for agile development methods and an experienced, business-savvy team of implementors. Galatia is able to understand business needs and quickly apply sound technical expertise in order to achieve highest possible levels of customer satisfaction.

Applying our broad experience in the integration of technological and business drivers, we shorten implementation time and our client's time-to-market. Galatia thinks "outside the box," implementing creative solutions to complex needs not hindered by limited experience with a few platforms or development environments.

We help our clients connect disparate business elements to gain competitive benefits from the Internet in the following areas:

  • Business process and Internet-to-host legacy application integration
  • Back-end application design and development
  • Site structure, navigation, design, and development
  • Graphical user interface design
  • Internet marketing integration

Our Methodology

Galatia's phased approach to project implementation has evolved during six years' experience in complex Internet application development. We strive to deliver projects on time, on budget, and to meet or exceed client expectations. We strive for client satisfaction, reliable and maintainable systems, and long-term relationships.

Our work with a client begins by focusing on the business and technical drivers at work. This may be done informally and conversationaly, or may encompass multiple meetings leading to development of project specification documents, depending upon the size of the project being undertaken and the client's preferences.

Once the goals of the proposed project are well defined and understood, we can begin the actual development process. Galatia's development process is agile and iterative: as we specify, design, implement, and test project components, we conduct peer reviews and seek customer feedback; we then apply what we have learned to another cycle of work. In this way, we are able to refine the product quickly instead of producing reams of static documentation and an immutable end product based on early assumptions.

We believe in client involvement, and welcome client input and participation in the development process.

After building basic system elements, we rapidly Integrate module prototypes so that our clients may view interim results and provide feedback as the system evolves towards an integrated whole. Final steps involve careful testing and Verification of the entire system to ensure smooth Launch. An integrated launch plan may include: staff training, contingency planning, detailed transition and temporary parallel processing plans.

The end result of Galatia's agile development process is a smooth implementation meeting expectations and maximizing return on client investment.
