What makes a solution simple to implement and maintain?
The most important aspect of making it easy to adopt and onboard would be building a solution with as many independent parts as possible.
Dependencies have a direct impact on the sustainability and maintainability of the solution. The less dependent your components and modules are, the easier they are to maintain, and your sustainability score is higher.
Think about these questions to determine how sustainable is your digital solution.
How fast can your team do troubleshoot?
When an issue is detected in the solution, how long do you need to troubleshoot and find the root cause?
How fast can your team improve the logic?
When an update in the system require to be done, how long does it take to implement the new futures or fix a defect?
How long does it take to redeploy?
When a new code base is release, how easy is to redeploy the new version?
How long does it take to run the regression tests?
When any change happen in the system, do you have enough regression tests to make sure the old system is performing? And how easy is to run those tests?
Your sustainability score increases, and your components and modules are easier to maintain the less dependent they are.
Adopt simple but crucial practices to improve sustainability.
1 / Modern Architecture
Utilizing industry best practices and standards in solution design. Focusing on technical prowess to produce high-quality digital solutions.
2 / Decoupling of the Components
The more interdependent a software system's components are, the greater the risk of failure and damage to your business.
3 / Automated testing and regression testing
Automated tests can minimize risk by ensuring the correct functionality of existing solutions before fixing any defects or enhancing new features.
4 / Continuous Integration & Deployment
The faster you can get your solution into the testing and production environments, the quicker you will be able to fix crucial issues as well as determine problems in real infrastructure rather than a developer's machine.
DevOps (Development Operations) is crucial for boosting the solution's sustainability and quality.
Project delivery structure
Build CI/CD pipelines
Using the requirements, we create the solution delivery breakdown and create the Epics, features, user stories, and tasks in the appropriate software development platforms, such as Jira, Azure DevOps, or ClickUp.
We utilize Terraform's infrastructure as code (IaC) methodology and create the full deployments automatically. This facilitates the software development team's integration of their solution and automated testing.
We assist you in developing release pipelines in order to release with as little bureaucracy as possible while being transparent and automated. We assist in the development of approval processes for various stakeholders.
Microsoft Azure Services
with a focus on sustainability
Our technical team at SoftwareQ is a specialist in designing, developing, and deploying Microsoft Azure cloud services. We use other providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Alibaba Cloud, however, Microsoft Azure is our primary focus.
We follow the service-oriented, message-driven, and event-driven architectures approaches and use the following services to manage the code.
Azure Service Bus
Azure Key Vault
Azure Cosmos Db
Azure Event Hubs & Event Grid
Azure Data Factory
