Analysis

Our advice

There are many options to increase the ROI of existing Uniface applications. Often a lot more is possible then you would expect at first sight. We are happy to tell you. Ask us for advice.
In most organisations where applications are developed in Uniface, these applications belong to the business critical core. The choice for Uniface is a wise one. Uniface is upward compatible, which results in a very favourable ROI. Uniface applications will last a long time.

However, applications are never static closed boxes. They move in an ever moving world. Insights into IT and the use of technology are, just like your own organisation, dynamic. How does your application fit into this time picture? Our professionals pass on that insight through our analysis service.

 

You have chosen Uniface as the basis for your business support software and you want to keep the risks for these business-critical applications as low as possible. Managers and IT professionals ensure the continuity of the daily business. Making an application constantly move with all trends and changes is impossible.

After all, applications are functionally kept up to date, but there is usually no time or budget for technical matters. Our own experiences and research show that more than 90% of all applications show signs of ‘outdatedness’ internally. Usually these only come to the surface when it is too late. In the form of performance problems or an increase in the turnaround time of management effort.

Often a reason is needed to carry out a thorough analysis of the applications. Sometimes there is also a need. For example, before a migration is carried out. It is therefore an integral part of our migration service. Before migration it may be necessary to perform a refactoring based on the analysis report.

Why hire an expert

In theory, any Uniface developer can perform a thorough analysis. However, this turns out to be disappointing in practice. Overdue technical maintenance is sometimes difficult to identify and the consequences cannot be estimated. For example, a developer is often blind to the consequences of his own choices or those of his colleagues and predecessors.

It is precisely the involvement of a third party that can help carry out a thorough analysis. An expert can give a complete overview based on his experience. Moreover, an (external) expert can give an objective picture of the status of the application.

Our 4 step approach

Our approach is based on years of experience, in which we have seen dozens, if not hundreds, of applications pass by. Our approach offers stability and yet sufficient flexibility, so that we can also process your applications as efficiently as possible.

Every refactoring project starts with an extensive analysis of the sources of the application. This shows the scope and necessity of refactoring.

You determine which steps are important to you. For the analysis and refactoring we use tooling developed by ourselves. All steps are carefully documented and explained to the client.

Intake of the application(s) and the context.

During this step we will collect all the information and data that is required to perform the next steps. 

Analysis of the technical state of the application(s). Which functions, statements or structures can lead to issues?

Analysis of the existing processes for development, testing, acceptance and production of the application(s).

Analysis of the use of Uniface. Is Uniface used optimally?

Analysis of the context of the application. Connection to databases, configuration of Uniface and security of web components.

Drafting an extensive report with our findings.

Advice on the steps to be taken following from the report.
