Software Evolution

Proven processes and the latest technologies

We use an structured software evolution process to help you react to changing market needs while retaining your usual approach.

Investment security

Increasing degree of innovation

Planning security

Achieving value and quality while remaining flexible

As functionality advances, the maintainability of a software system falls. In other words, no ongoing investment is made in upholding quality. As part of software evolution, we will help you maintain, run and advance software. This encompasses the monitoring, verification, cleanup and redevelopment of existing components, without having to redesign the entire software system. So, your software will be tailored to your business requirements and can be adjusted as they change.

Software evolution – value and quality gains
Software evolution – Ongoing development
Enhanced innovation that's integrated into ongoing development

Together, we will assess technological innovations and help you modernize and optimize your overall architecture on an ongoing basis. Automated build processes, accompanying and automated quality assurance, and a holistic architecture management system ensure your system is easier to navigate, and allow you to implement new features more quickly. We'll start with a vision workshop to determine all your business process needs and then perform an initial analysis of your system. This will enable us to work together to gradually establish an ITIL-based service process, which will tell you how innovative the existing applications in your landscape are.

Planning security through targeted analysis of the actual status

We rely on established processes and procedures, like our Health Check, to help you better understand the actual status of your software system and derive strategic decisions regarding further development. Together, we define your goals and the framework conditions for realizing a shared vision. Through talks and based on an extensive structural analysis, we look at the current software weaknesses, evaluate their risk and come up with beneficial recommendations for action. Then, you receive a summary and a detailed description of the results, which you can use to guide your next steps.

Health Check

We use a tried-and-tested process to determine the status of a software system based on ISO 25010, which is available in three different versions: Quick Check - simple collection and explanation of metrics using expert software | Health Check - verification of individual aspects like maintainability, transferability and usability | Deep Check - in-depth inspection of several aspects, up to a detailed elaboration of improvement strategies.

Maintenance

We take care of the maintenance and advancement of software solutions. Different types of team lineups are possible: you can select a purely maintenance- or development-focused team, or one with mixed duties. What's more, independent teams with their own project leaders, or mixed teams with the customer's employees and other service providers, are also possible. This is modeled on a service or work contract, or based on time & material as an agile process, or as per other models.

Restoration, restructuring & refactorizing

In general, our teams will support you with source code cleanup, by utilizing refactorings in line with standard process templates. Furthermore, the planning and execution of restructuring and restoration for entire software systems or individual subsections is possible. For example, we help to launch new methods and technologies, establish processes on teams, port existing systems or migrate their data.

Application support

Application support (AWB) is a key component of the maintenance offered by the IT Service and aims to provide IT services in the quality agreed with the customer. The services to be rendered within the scope of the application support have been outlined in a service-level agreement (SLA) and include the handling of incidents (service quality limitations), service requests (as per the service catalog) and changes, running releases, monitoring the applications and regularly reporting to the customer. Application support involves application consultants, DevOps specialists, system engineers and administrators. If necessary, software developers can be called on to analyze code. However, code adjustments are not performed by the application support team, but handled by software developers.
