Professional System Re-Architecting Services

System Re-Architecting

Over the course of time all software solutions eventually become obsolete. Business owners have to make the decision to either rewrite the solution or migrate their existing product to a modern mainstream technology or new platform. Simple Answers provide analysis services designed to assess legacy software to determine if it should be rewritten or migrated.

We help our clients attain their business goals through capitalising on our experience of software re-engineering. Simple Answers has a proven re-engineering methodology that is designed to maximise code reuse thus ensuring costs are kept to a minimum and the solution is migrated rapidly.

Porting & Migrating

In order to make a product accessible to a wider customer base or to retain key customers who are adopting an unsupported technology platform, many businesses seek to port or migrate their existing products to new technology platforms. As mature products become obsolete, the out-dated technology makes product support and upgrades difficult and costly.

We offer the following porting and migration services:

  • Assessment of the product to be migrated
  • Research of the platform to be supported
  • Review of functionality transfer
  • Cost / Benefit Analysis
  • Implementation of the migration

Legacy Systems

Advancements in information technology can fundamentally change the nature of business operations, necessitating the re-engineering of legacy IT systems and applications to new environments capable of supporting evolving business needs, while preserving established rules and practices. Other motivating factors for engaging in re-engineering initiatives include coping with rising maintenance costs due to non-standardized code and instability caused by multiple patches over time.

Engaging in systems and application re-engineering projects can be challenging. Selecting the best new technology and recovering lost documentation and source code can be slow down business progress. To overcome these challenges, we offer end-to-end systems and application re-engineering services, including:

  • Analyses of product functionality
  • Feasibility assessments of required modifications
  • Advice on best new technology to use
  • Research and development of new algorithms
  • Prototyping
  • Recovery and documentation of code for future modifications

Project Recovery

Not all software projects work. We are able to help recover failed, failing, or “can’t be done” projects. The causes of project failure can be varied: from cost and/or time overruns/underestimations due to poor project management or insufficient resource allocation to the occurrence of a catastrophic event (irretrievable loss of data/personnel).

Some projects are irretrievable, but wherever possible we will try and help recover a project as economically as possible. We can provide a fresh perspective on how to achieve project goals and accelerate project recovery by maximizing code reuse. To overcome barriers to success, we offer the following project recovery services:

  • Project Assessment
  • Recovery Planning
  • Replacement or augmentation of development staff
  • Code audit and Improvement recommendations
  • Code recovery and/or technical documentation
  • Implementation of development
