Development Technology is a unified system that ensures that the IT organization, by focusing on customer needs and meeting deadlines, is capable of creating and sustaining high quality, up-to-date IT systems.

The IT organizations are able to adopt this development method within 3 months and double their performance on a functional point basis.

The source of this is the impact of the methodology on the organization of work and the high degree of automation of the work processes, or the Java class library for development, which provides high-quality services for the projects, thus speeding up the creation. The source code of the Java class library is also available, so the development can later be done independently and it is typically built on component of open source code. The use hides therefore no further costs in itself.

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM FOR A SOLUTION?

“Compliance with project dates.”

The tasks of the project are divided into subtasks of 1-16 hours. The hard-to-estimate research development is approached separately, the accustomed type tasks can be well estimated, as these get high-level support.

“The project costs are difficult to estimate.”

The typed tasks allow a more accurate estimation of many tasks. The progress is well trackable.

“The” technological “tasks have a great cost.”

Since the individual products in the configured system – including the creation of documents – have been resolved, the team will not be burdened by such tasks.

“It’s hard or impossible to occasionally catch up with power sources.”

The methodology and the development technology support tasks that require almost only general knowledge of Java or web developer skills. For these tasks, junior colleagues can be used without much experience. You can do productive work in most areas where personal work is needed. Such a work is, for example, the design of user interfaces.

“Communication with customers is risky.”

The technology allows the junior colleagues to prepare the full surface of the future system, which can then be presented to the customer using mock data.

The function of the system can thus be validated on a “living” demo system, which minimizes the subsequent risk. The UI created this way can be used 100% except for the mock data, that is, it was not a work thrown out of the window. This is the so-called “GUI first” approach.

“The transfer to commissioning is problematic.”

The technology provides a built-in, modular, expandable operating platform that enables a cloud-based or database-based feature remotely. A good example of this is our systems delivered to Allianz or E.ON, operating in foreign, private cloud.

“It’s hard to give tasks to junior developers.”

The well-defined frameworks of development technology allow everyone to work in the area of ​​the project that best suits their knowledge, so even junior developers can perform effective tasks in the “release” without the usual risks ,

“The code quality gets worse over time (when should it be rewritten?).”

The only firm thing in IT developments is the constant change, which is why Quattrosoft’s development technology strongly supports refactoring at all levels (model, documentation, database, Java code). So there can be real solutions instead of immediate solutions, which helps to improve the code quality rather than the usual code degradation.

The framework for IT in public

Administration are again increased by the keyword “Save costs”. Many cantons are under high financial pressure. At the same time they are growing Claims of users. The “consumerization” holds more and more move-in. This means that both employees and customers of the Management through the private user experience of Internet, e-commerce, tablet and smartphone are affected and the same demands on the IT the administration. An important keyword is “Mobility”. Employees are increasingly working not only in the office of nine to five, but around the clock on the road or in the home office. At the same time, customers want their business with the administration as well handle any location at any time. As before, numerous processes in the Management paper-based. The digitization will undoubtedly progressing rapidly and is an essential means to meet the cost pressures at the same time higher volume of work due to new regulations and to meet growing population. As in the private sector becomes value chains broken up and working as a “self service” to the Clientele returned.

The pressure for higher profitability, digitization, mobility and agility provides administrations facing big organizational challenges and demands a higher innovative strength of the solution providers. Purchasers today are the specialist departments, while central IT assumes a governance role. Cantons and municipalities close get together for joint purchases perform. Few big providers are preferred to many small providers. You search primarily standard solutions and less individual software. Although laws and regulations for privacy reasons are currently still a local Require data processing, it is foreseeable that central and cloud-based solutions “from the Socket “replace the self-powered software become.

Zoning plan for IT landscapes

While architecture in the context of IT systems usually understands the software and system architecture of individual IT systems, in recent years the cross-system view has been considered

entire system landscapes of an organization have become enormously important. One speaks of it

Corporate Architecture or Enterprise Architecture.

The mastery of over time grown IT landscapes, the embedding of new systems in one

such landscape, the replacement of existing systems with new and not least business mergers require not inconsiderable planning and monitoring efforts

IT projects that often go hand-in-hand with organizational changes.

So if you compare the classic IT architect with the architect of buildings, then the

Corporate architect can be seen as a city planner.

This lecture gives an overview of the discipline “Enterprise Architecture” and shows practical

Examples of how complex and interesting Enterprise Architecture is and how it deals with the “classic”

IT architecture plays together.

All IT organizations in medium-sized and large companies are dealing with the challenges of a rapidly and heterogeneously grown IT or are looking for methods / approaches to further optimize the existing IT structures. IT must be aligned with business to ensure optimal support of business goals through ICT.

BUILDING PLAN FOR IT LANDSCAPES

Dependence on information technology is becoming increasingly important for companies in almost every sector. The negative consequences of this development, for example, were recently illustrated by the collapse of US electricity supply, when computer malfunctions caused power outages in much of the country. The same applies to the sluggish introduction of the toll introduction, which was also due to insufficiently coordinated IT processes. The growing importance of IT in everyday business is complemented by the influence of external factors such as Basel II and SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley Act). Therefore, companies with a complex IT landscape should think in good time of transparent, process-oriented IT planning.

Learn from urban farmers

The IT landscape is comparable to a growing, ever-changing city. City planners have to take into account many factors: connections to sewers and electricity networks, waste disposal, connections to public transport, schools or kindergartens. As soon as a building block of this infrastructure is missing or disappears, the order quickly gets mixed up.

If a component is changed in an existing IT infrastructure, standards and interfaces must be taken into consideration, to name but two examples. And if a building block is removed from an existing IT landscape, the smooth running of the system must be guaranteed. If, for example, a software vendor fixes his solution, companies that use the product must quickly and comprehensibly check the consequences or the expense of independently developing them. Such projects can not be designed on a flipchart in companies with complex IT that connect multiple plants or branches.

A uniform development plan that maps the IT architecture is still the exception today. Not infrequently, even in large companies, both the existing IT landscape and planned projects are recorded on PowerPoint slides and Word documents. There can be no question of uniform presentation and transparent planning. The consequences of this negligence become particularly clear when, for example, a common target landscape has to be formed in the event of a merger of the existing IT landscapes of two companies. Quite often, problems with IT make merger a tough test. The managing director of a company merged with another company a year ago recently complained: “The integration of corporate cultures is practically over, and we are lagging far behind in IT. In the past, IT was often the first thing that stood. «Also a consequence of ever more complex IT landscapes.
