The errors accumulated over the years or old technology often make the work much more difficult. Sometimes there are cases where the application logic is located in the visual layer instead of the server layer. Often , new defects appear suddenly during the release of a new version of the program (regression). These challenges must be faced if you want to keep developing your IT systems and think long-term.
The problem becomes even more difficult to deal with when it concerns very large IT systems with many different ongoing processes.
What will we do for you?
We will do code refactoring to make the program’s technical support easier (code maintabilty).
We will create a test automation system and program quality maintenance system.
We will introduce mechanisms ensuring safety in the event of a failure – database replication and archiving.
We will implement changes smoothly without downtime or long technical breaks. We know that you have to guarantee that the program will run continuously.
New features implemented faster and with no side effects
Refactoring will make the code more transparent and accessible as well as simpler, easier to control and stable. Rewriting software for new technologies also means getting rid of a large part of technical debt. It also means that the program runs faster on a daily basis.
Benefits of software maintenance
Improving the program will become easier, faster and cheaper. The risk of new errors in the implementation of subsequent versions (the so-called regression errors) will be reduced to a minimum.
However, if an error occurs, it will be picked up early in the testing phase, not by your customers. You will see defects or deficiencies in the code immediately without laborious analysis. This is due to the transparent structure in the test environment.
You will shorten the TTM (Time To Market) of new functions and keep your program more stable. You’ll start doing the tests faster and more accurately at the same time.
Using the program on a daily basis will become cheaper and will not cause major problems. It also means smoother and faster work for developers and end users.
It will be easier to estimate the costs related to the work of testers.
You will minimize the risk of a technical debt in the future. This actually means operating for a very long time after implementation, despite the further transformations of the program. It is impossible to get rid of this phenomenon completely and it can cause many problems. We know about it, which is why we pay a lot of attention to reducing this dysfunction to a minimum.
What would our cooperation look like
At Onex Group, we know that software development is a project for you that may involve a high risk or cost. Above all, however, it is an investment that is supposed to bring you a return. We understand that funds for the expansion of IT systems must be used in an appropriate and optimal way. We feel responsible for the success of the project.
Therefore, based on our experience in cooperation with other clients, we propose the following model of cooperation:
We will conduct a series of analyzes (business and technical) and talk about your needs.
We will prepare a detailed map of the new solution considering all your requirements.
We will prepare and present you a precise action plan and an appropriate model of cooperation. You will find there, among other things, a more detailed work schedule.
We create plans based on our experience and previously determined needs and specificity of your company’s work culture. We always give our clients the opportunity to change their requirements during the process of creating a new IT product. This approach allows for higher efficiency – it combines our fast work with satisfactory results.
We will start working in accordance with the previously agreed terms of cooperation.
We strive to work in an atmosphere of mutual trust. This is why we conduct the entire project in a transparent manner – we inform about all processes (work progress, ideas, changes in deadlines, etc.), as well as key project parameters (cost, scope, time, risk).
We will carry out the implementation and make sure that the implemented functions meet your requirements. Once we ensure they do, we will move the project to the final acceptance stage.
After the project is finished, you can still count on us:
We guarantee technical support.
If needed, we will train your employees to fully use the potential of the new solutions.
We will make a technical transfer of the project to your teams, or we will provide full support services.
