How our product can help your organisation

Our Application Understanding solution solves the challenges presented by legacy applications by providing your application development team with a centralised interactive documentation repository that contains a wealth of useful information about your applications. Using our Application Analyser helps overcome many of the IT difficulties your team faces every day, and enables them to manage, maintain or modernise your application portfolio more efficiently.


Are you facing these challenges?

Difficulty in Changing:
Legacy applications can be extremely difficult to change due to their convoluted make up, along with how few people have the skills and knowledge to handle and develop them. This knowledge shortage and complex construction costs time and money. 

Software Entropy:
Over time, a software system that undergoes continuous change will become more complex and can become disorganised, losing its original design structure. This is difficult and costly to maintain.

Technical Debt:
When code that is deemed easy to implement in the short run is used instead of the best overall option, a technical debt is created due to the extra development work that arises. In the future, this extra work will be a drain on resources.
