Issue

A lasting, quality information system with reduced maintenance costs depends on well-managed applications.

Documentation is often obsolete –or does not even exist– and only a few people in your company can handle it.

Overhauling the documentation of your applications will let you:

  • Have your IS up and running every day
  • Achieve lasting, quality applications
  • Be independent from third parties
  • Implement upgrades
  • Rotate teams
  • Migrate to another system
  • Implement IS process modelling, etc.

 

Methodology

Our methodology is based both on a functional and technical approach. The system is described from the outside by its functions, services, and associated technical components.

We use our Recode-Workbench CASE workbench to analyze, convert and validate the system with a high automation level.

ApplicationManagement

Our software engineering workbenches carry out a thorough analysis of your system and quickly provide you with an overview of your applications in a technical and functional mapping.

We go further in details depending on your objectives.

  • Corrective maintenance
  • Upgrades
  • Migration to a modern architecture (rewriting or regenerating the code)
  • IS process modelling
  • Application deconstruction and replacement by a software package
