Often existing products need to be redeveloped to improve their performance, modify their functions for better stability. Locus IT handles this very efficiently by a well-defined process keeping the future in mind.
To improve the performance of the existing software product, often, it needs to be modified and updated, the important performance criteria being speed and stability of the software product. As software products are facing ever-increasing competition it is necessary to add more functionalities with the same software. Adding better flexibility in the user interface and making it user friendly will attract more customers. A new look with good graft will improve the look and feel of the software. Some times a software product needs to be re-engineered to correct the existing bugs. This can also happen because of customer testing and feedback.
Our product re-engineering flow.
Locus IT. first analyze the project fully and make a feasibility study, which is mainly to find the reengineering possibilities and to conclude whether it is really needed, to find the needed resources and allocate them.
If the reengineering is needed for a product then the feedback from the customer is taken for the existing customers. This is to find out what the customer actually needs, what the existing problems are, whether he needs any additional functions and flexibility in the product. If the customer is from a corporate background, Speech Desk Technologies works closely with them to customize the product to their preference.
Once the project is finalized a code walk-through is done on the existing source code. This is done to find out the existing architecture, the coding styles and also a clear study on any modification needed which will increase the speed and reliability of operation. A detailed report will be submitted to the customer along with the report of needed modification in the architecture and the code.
Documentation / Spec Generation
All the needed process is well documented analyzed and a working model based on the new needs is generated. The documentation freezes the analyses and all the studies. From the working plan the final specification is generated. This document will contain all the needed modifications and the specification for any additional modules.
Implementation / Verification
According to the specification and the conclusion on the coding style and the expected architecture the modules are implemented and all the modifications are done. An exhaustive verification is done from the smallest level of the code right through the higher levels of architecture
The final finished product is exhaustively tested/verified to check all the functions and all the unexpected conditions.
Once the product is tested completely it is then sent to the customer. The engineers from Speech Desk Technologies will continue to provide support with integration or any other kind of support.
