Full lifecycle project management and
software development for the AS/400.
From initial planning and design through testing, rollout and training, we can assist your project team or turnkey the development for you.
Database design and data modeling. After its people, your data is your company's most valuable commodity. An appropriate data
model - one that solves today's problems and anticipates tomorrow's - is the essence of a good application. Since data models always outlive the programs that use them, getting them right the first
time is of paramount importance. Otherwise you'll be saddled with problems that become more expensive to solve with the passage of time. We can help you develop a model that is best for your situation, and
to judge the trade offs between performance and normalization.
Testing and Quality Assurance. Testing and Quality
Assurance (QA) hours typically equal or exceed development hours, which is often an unanticipated result. We provide QA that tests for
usability as well as accuracy. For instances where sweeping changes have been made to a large package, we provide regression testing to ensure the entire package still functions properly.
Documentation should receive direction from knowledgeable QA staff who have developed their own scripts for usability and accuracy. Outsourcing this function is a good idea in order to provide a fresh viewpoint.
