Application Lifecycle Management
Are you experiencing challenges with regard to reaching the desired quality level, controlling maintenance or delivering timely within your in-house software development organization? Are you struggling with formulating business requirements in an appropriate manner to IT? Are you wondering how to set up maturity-increasing trajectories in your organization?
Today many organizations are performing business process optimization efforts in various departments, yet the IT (software development) processes are frequently forgotten. Yet these processes are under large pressure due to a.o. short lead time constraints, changing requirements and architectural tradeoffs & compliance. Business requests larger agility while at the same time the organization (and IT strategy) is standardizing to reduce costs.
These factors can largely impact the performance of your software delivery and the management of the application lifecycle. Hence, the Application Lifecycle Management processes need to evolve according to the requirements asked by the organization.
LoQutus can help you to improve the maturity of your software delivery and operations organization. We have experienced consultants in application development and lifecycle management to assist you in improvement trajectories. LoQutus can help you with translating symptoms to root causes, defining software development process improvements and organizing a training and innovation schedule,
Over the past years, we have assembled a knowledge database on software development practices and their impact on software development performance over a large number of organizations. We benchmark your organization against organizations from the same sector or same size to derive maturity-increasing trajectories, aligned with the state of practice.
The principles of lean software development drive us in defining measurable actions. We use techniques such as value chain mapping, process automation and benchmarking to strive for waste elimination in the development process, for continuous quality improvement and faster delivery.
LoQutus can step into your challenges by means of various roles:
Our consultants conduct a general assessment of your software development organization or focus on specific pains to provide applicable advice to work on maturity improvements.
Our consultants set up and possible lead improvements projects in application lifecycle management practices or specific subdomains, such as solution architecture, requirements gathering or test automation.
A team of trainers teaches your organizations principles as well as practices in (lean) software development, analysis&design with UML, solution architecture, process-driven development, SOA as well as the link between software development and management disciplines such as enterprise architecture or business process management.
LoQutus consultants participate in software development projects where process improvements and innovation are applied. The realization happens in close collaboration with your team to optimize knowledge transfer.
