What is Smart in Scope?

The essence of Sovilon is to assist business to transition to the next-generation digital economy. Rather than simply being a goal, Smart in Scope is a way of thinking and working. It encompasses everything we’ve learned about the software development profession, and is our guiding principle for the short and long term.


Smart is the future. We can all feel the economy transitioning from the legacy to the digital. The speed of technology and advancements in science, tooling and best practices mean that to keep up, your pace must be brisk. Being Smart in Scope means your able to see what is now and what comes next, and have the passion and skill to bridge them together. It means you might be ahead of your time; sometimes years out.


Smart is relative. There are different environments, dimensions and situations where the “smart” thing to do changes depending on the context of the situation. Smart in Scope means to try to observe the world within a bounded context of understanding (scope). This allows us to always implement compassion, patience and empathy for with the people we work with, especially when things don’t go our way. It also means being humble when being wrong when faced with science, and respecting the human condition no matter who or what.


Smart is being excited by challenge. There are many ways to do one thing. Multiple paths can lead you to where you want to go. Being Smart in Scope is to be excited by the challenge, appreciating design constraints and willing to collaborate with and help others. We like to be [in] scope, and when we can’t, we promise to find another way.
