How to Efficiently Update Your Applications and Architecture

Keeping Up With the Beat

The current business landscape isn’t short on challenges for companies of all sizes. To the typical industry and market-related challenges, there’s also the paradigmatic shift brought about by digital transformation across all verticals. And if that wasn’t enough, the pandemic has disrupted almost all workflows, affecting everything from the supply chain to the customers themselves.

In that context, having cutting edge digital systems to conduct business has become an essential goal for all companies, so much so that most of them are now undertaking digital acceleration processes to keep up with the current demands for increasing digitalization. That adaptation to today’s rhythm of digital adoption is a huge challenge in and by itself, both for companies that are just starting with their digital acceleration as for the ones that have been working on it for a while.

Why Are Software Updates Important for Businesses?

That’s because integrating new digital technologies or updating existing ones can be an overwhelming task filled with potential issues. If companies are new to digital acceleration, the road is filled with pitfalls, from lacking the proper skills to tackle the process to getting lost in the abundant digital offerings. 

Companies in the midst of digital acceleration can find issues, too: updating legacy applications can take a long time, efficiently migrating to a new architecture to scale up requires a lot of experience, and improving overall availability needs skilled professionals to get it done quickly to meet new and fluctuating demands. And all that without considering the unpredictable effects of the pandemic.

It’s clear, then, that digitally accelerating a business is never easy but it’s especially hard during a crisis like the one unleashed by the Coronavirus. Fortunately, at BairesDev we know of some operational ways of organizing the work ahead and ease up the path towards digital adoption. Want to know about it? Read on.

The Right Solution for Specific Issues

Though we’d all love for a single solution to all existing problems, there isn’t such a thing. The right solution is the one that tackles the specific issue at hand, so it’s impossible to have a unique answer to all problems. However, there actually is a framework that can help companies with their digital challenges, whatever they might be: an increase in the collaboration between the development and the operations team.

By ensuring seamless collaboration between these teams, tackling the inherent issues of digital adoption is simpler and the solutions that grow out of such cooperation end up being more robust and effective. Naturally, the implementation of such collaboration will have a distinct impact, depending on the problem the company is looking to solve. 

The use of automated builds ensures consistency and increases code coverage and overall productivity. Thanks to that, all changes and new features introduced in the software are in sync with operations.

It also helps that we generate the proper environment for high-quality software to thrive. We do so by generating the right environment, keeping our developers motivated, focused, and trusting their judgment and expertise to do the job. Every BairesDev employee is a seasoned, independent, and self-organized developer. Together, they provide the right architecture for simplicity and excellence. 

Businesses with legacy applications can also benefit from this approach, especially if they are struggling to add new features. The use of automated builds ensures consistency and increases code coverage and overall productivity. Thanks to that, all changes and new features introduced in the software are in sync with operations. 

What’s more – anyone facing the update of a legacy application should aim for a process BairesDev style. In other words, it’s wise to design a roadmap ahead of time that guides the entire project and that allows for faster deployment of all new features. This results in an increased rate of software delivery and an improved time to market. 

Getting Help On Time

The operational principle we use at BairesDev can be deceptively simple but it’s actually pretty tricky to pull off. That’s mainly because businesses need more than just knowing about it to actually implement it in a real-life scenario: they need the know-how and expertise required to make those operational methods work. That’s why even companies that know about this principle may fail while attempting to use it: because it requires talented professionals to be successful.

That’s why it’s important to assess the in-house talent to check whether there are the right professionals to tackle such a task. If there isn’t any skilled engineer to implement the collaboration between development and operations teams or if the ones available don’t have enough bandwidth, then it’s imperative to consider outsourcing for help. 

BairesDev’s Extended teams, for instance, can quickly provide the speed, know-how, and flexibility required by companies to scale quickly, improve performance, and update legacy applications. Our Top 1% of IT engineers are available on-demand and are ready to jumpstart any digital acceleration process by adding value from day one and bringing along the operational know-how to overcome the inherent challenges of digital acceleration.

The important thing is, then, not just knowing about how to efficiently tackle a digital acceleration process but also having seasoned resources to do it right. With BairesDev’s help, companies across all industries can get just that. Is that what you’re looking for? Then don’t hesitate to contact us today.
