Blacklight Solutions’ Runway Packages are designed to give our clients easy-to-engage options as they are ramping up. Runway Packages feature defined deliverables that solve specific business needs for some of the most in-demand use cases we see.

Analytics Packages

Short Development Timelines
Each of these package options are structured as quick sprints – from six weeks to 90 days.  This gives businesses momentum so that they can see immediate results from their investment.

Expert Resources
Runway Packages give clients access to Blacklight Solutions’ experienced consultants who have deep expertise in building and deploying Big Data solutions.  We work side by side with our client teams to ensure that there is seamless integration; this also saves the company from the time and expense of bringing on new development resources with these specific skill sets.

Turnkey Projects
Runway Packages that involve software build and deployment are 100 percent turnkey.  We support the full development cycle and provide complete knowledge transfer so our clients are able to stand up and independently operate a complete solution.

Business Planning
Every project is stand-alone – no long-term contracts are required – and pricing is clearly defined at the outset to minimize risk exposure for our clients.  Engaging us with Runway Packages also allows businesses to strategically build project requirements incrementally and limit up-front spend.
