Designing your IT applications is about supporting your business processes, so that is where you start. A good design offers the best experience for your users and an efficient way to communicate. Your application should be easy to use, but do exactly what it is intended for: driving your business.
Consider the future and design with security, scalability and maintainability in mind. Use modern and modular approaches to create constantly evolving yet sustainable applications.
But remain loyal to your business goals and secure that your software design will pay off the result you want and does not impose costs without benefits.
With proven experience in implementing cutting edge technology, I can help you define your software needs, make technology choices and set up a detailed requirement specification to jumpstart your project.
Executing your project is where you succeed. But this is the domain of detailed technical knowledge and experience. Getting the best people helps but getting the best result from your people is what you need.
I do not believe it is possible to manage a technical pack without having a thorough understanding of technology. Therefore I do code and get to know the technology, and that helps to make good descisions along the way. Know and apply modern frameworks, modern tools and modern methods, which allows you to get a grip on your project.
Once in operation, you will find that your application is perpetually evolving. You will find flaws and bugs and you will need to optimize, scale and adapt your software to changing circumstances. So even after deployment you need be able to change your application swiftly and without too much cost.
You will need to be able to monitor your systems and applications, and you will identify things that need to be changed. You should be able to add new features, integrate with other systems and scale up along the way. And this is where a modular approach of your design will pay off.
I believe software is never really finished, and I believe software should be built with that fact in mind. You want to avoid to periodically replace your entire software stack, rather you want to continuously swap out parts of your application overnight.
Building software does not stop after starting your servers. I can help you from the start to set up your software lifecycle management and allow you to capitalize on it for years to come.
