Optimal yield with OutSystems

Low-code solutions such as OutSystems are applied to accelerate the digital transformation of organizations while keeping costs to a minimum. A precondition for delivering on this promise is that developers apply OutSystems’ functionality and best practices. The platform’s flexibility and ease of integration make it appealing to developers to create functionalities in technologies other than OutSystems; often technologies with which they are more familiar. When the strength of OutSystems is not optimally utilized, the speed, manageability and expandability are at risk.

In collaboration with OutSystems, Boncode has coordinated its tooling, dashboard and approach to the specific characteristics of the OutSystems platform. This makes it possible to evaluate, based on factual insight, whether applications are being implemented correctly and optimally. Our findings and recommendations make it possible to take full advantage of the low-code promise of OutSystems.

Future viability custom systems

Agile development enables us to deliver functionality fast and respond quickly to any changes. The Agile working method, however, is not without risk:

  • The focus on functionality can lead to insufficient attention to software quality, resulting in technical debt. As this debt accrues, the maintainability will decrease, including the ability to correct errors or respond to changing demands.
  • Scalability will leave something to be desired, because this was not anticipated.
  • The architecture applied in the software was inadequately well-considered or allowed to grow organically, which threatens its future viability.
  • The team is a collection of individuals rather than a collaborative unit.

These risks become transparent and manageable thanks to Boncode’s tooling and services, which are aligned to ISO 25010 standards. Our services are suitable for object-oriented technologies such as Java, Javascript, C#, C++ and many others.
Our findings and recommendations enable solid decision-making with regard to the maintainability, expandability and scalability of custom-designed systems.

Software is partially invisible

The fast, flawless delivery of systems is becoming more important, especially when it comes to implementing DevOps. The assessing of the quality of systems often focuses on (automated) testing. The software’s ‘intrinsic’ technical quality is assumed to be good if the system functions as it should. In practice, however, this assumption is incorrect. Even a properly-functioning system may ultimately encounter issues with regard to maintainability and adaptability. Our measurements and visualizations supply crucial facts to supplement your current testing or DevOps procedure. The invisible aspects of software, the implemented architecture and the accrued technical debt are rendered visible. This gives insight into whether your software will continue to function properly in the long term.
