Over the years, most complex systems degrade without regular refactoring to ensure suitable performance. Inheriting the maintenance of systems that have had years of neglect can be formidable. While there is no magic wand, appropriate tooling, strategy and execution can result in a modernized solution with years of technical debt resolved. Let us help you plan your most challenging refactor.
UNCLEAR OR NON-EXISTENT PROCESSES?
If the delivery of your systems experiences bottlenecks while the team tries to sort out a workable process, or the process is constantly changing with no governance or communication, you're not alone. Establishing standards, along with communication and monitoring will help you achieve more predictable results. We will right-size processes that you can sustain.
Does your legacy solution architecture feel like a house of cards whenever you attempt to extend or integrate with other systems? If you are reluctant to implement new systems to avoid potential disruption or support issues, let our team conduct an assessment of your architecture and recommend a path towards greater stability and extensibility.
When the Operations team is not aligned with the needs of the Development & QA teams, delays can be frustrating and expensive. Optimizing your Build and Release process can relieve pressure on the entire organization. We can show you how.
Feeling the heat?
Budget and schedule burning, but the deliverables are not getting completed or are constantly being reworked? Do you have a project that is taking on water and sinking fast? A properly designed ALM strategy and TFS environment can reduce the risk and cost of project failure. We can quickly assess and remediate your most challenging application design or architectural problems
With standard TFS queries, we can quickly identify any skill and/or resource gaps that may be preventing your team from delivering your projects on time and on budget. We can often help source the resources to help you finish your project on time.
No end in sight to your backlog?
Limited resources or development bottlenecks preventing you from keeping up with the demands of the business or properly prioritizing your project intake process? We help IT departments quickly clear the project backlog using Application Lifecycle Management and keep stakeholders happy. We can help you deliver what the business wants.
Estimation: Science or Art?
If you’ve been discouraged by excessive change requests which impact your budget and schedule commitments, you’re not alone. Many application budgets and schedules are forecasted with inadequate rigor. Our methods result in projects commonly being delivered within a 3 to 5% variance.
When organizations repeatedly allow individual contributors to circumvent design standards, technical debt can accrue very rapidly. That debt compounds over time and can consume your IT budget. Establishing enforceable & maintainable design process pays enormous dividends. We'll show you how.
Do you have a critical application deployed that is performing far below acceptable performance levels? Our solution architects can quickly sort our the root of the problem and tune your application for high performance using Team Foundation Server / Visual Studio Product Suite.
