Meets Its Customers' Business Requirements in a New Way.
May 01, 2013 Why
CIOs need their custom software built like software products
Software has always transformed how organizations do business
internally, but the game-changing phenomenon currently taking
place is that many organizations now interact with suppliers,
partners, and, most importantly, customers, using software - not
just packaged software, but their own proprietary software
as well. When you add mobile devices to this new product
orientation, you create a whole new set of challenges that
IT shops must overcome to stay competitive.
The old methods of building custom software no longer
work in today's modern, distributed economy. IT shops in
large corporations are hiring product development software
vendors to meet the new challenges and create value and
differentiation for their businesses. These IT departments
have found that using product development methodologies
is the solution to upgrading their software and driving
better global operations and customer interactions.
IT applications are now best designed using many of the
same product engineering and management concepts that software
companies use to build commercial software products: creating
a scalable, multi-tenant architecture based on a long-term
product roadmap, doing careful release planning, leveraging
agile development methodologies appropriately, and using
the latest build and testing tools to shorten the total
delivery cycle. Many of these companies are outsourcing
this work of customizing their internal applications in
order to tap into the expertise used to create commercial
software products, because their in-house staff may not
have the availability or expertise.
OFS has worked with many companies to address these new
requirements and rebuild its custom IT software. Our methods
are adapted from those that have worked for our commercial
software customers long before. As long as large companies
continue to require the same instances of software in different
geographies and countries, controls to release and update
the same software at different geographical locations, and
the ability to release versions of their internal customer
software without interruptions to other updates and departments,
the need for the innovation that commercial product software
methods bring to the enterprise will be a requirement.
NOTE: OFS and Forrester Research Inc. are sharing
their insights on this topic on May 9, 2013, at 1:00 p.m.
EST. on meeting your business's diverse needs with the right
software. So please join Rich Napoli, COO of OFS, and guest
speaker Michael Facemire, Senior Analyst from Forrester
Research Inc. and learn how to build software like the pros.
