Modern software should not need maintenance


A paradigm shift in the software ecosystems

 

Software engineering has evolved over the past few decades. The old approach of looking at development from a locked-in view of risk, business and technology is outdated. You cannot rely on a ‘one and done’ approach to software or outdated maintenance methodologies. 

 

Today, software is evolving to better handle the constant state of change. When your business growth is inevitably being driven by technology - or Tech@Core - the software needs to operate in an optimal state as a flexible and adaptable digital asset. Rather than a reactive approach to ‘keep software from failing,’ we provide customers with proactive evolution tools and guidance to remain resilient for changing market dynamics and take your software into the future. 

Comparing the earlier and current view of the software ecosystem.   The software ecosystem earlier view - Risk guidance, business environment and tech landscape point to software which includes build and maintain. Software has a padlock icon. All of the ecosystem is in a box with a padlock icon labelled unchanging.   The software ecosystem - current view - Evolution, software, Tech@Core is at the centre of the circle with arrows pointing outwards towards risk guidance, business environment and tech landscape which have arrows pointing outwards. All is enclosed within a circle.
