Architecture and Backend Web API Review

Architectural decisions have a great impact on the subsequent quality of software implementations. Is your system using the most appropriate technology? Is the system designed for future needs, not only for today's deadlines?

DevOps and ALM Review

We use Microsoft's Visual Studio application lifecycle management (ALM) tools to provide the backbone for delivering software continuously. SSW can help you leverage the power of these tools to make your developers, testers, and analysts work together efficiently. We also use TFS, Azure DevOps (was VSTS), TeamCity, and Octopus Deploy to fix your deployments and improve your testing lifecycle.

Specification Review

Instead of keeping the client waiting until the final design is deployed, Scrum allows the client to have a clear image of how well the project is going. This will improve the satisfaction level of the client both during the project and afterwards.
    Requirements Analysis document containing plans and recommendations
    A list of product backlog items (PBIs)
    Ballpark Estimates for the cost of the project and number of sprints to complete.

Team and Process Review

Is your team as effective and efficient as possible? Without proper team processes, your project will suffer and deadlines will be missed. SSW experts have streamlined processes for hundreds of projects and know what it takes to bring a project back on track.

User Interface Review

Most users don't read manuals, so your software must be intuitive and consistent. Establishing consistency in your User Interface design is challenging. There are many standards available, but too often developers and application designers unknowingly choose a non-standard approach.

Google Search Engine Optimization

Your website is your point of presence on the Internet. It's great to have a good website but there is no point to this unless people can find it. The number 1 way to reach new clients is through search engines, in particular Google, which claims to be used by 70% of Internet users.

Database Structure Review

Designing a database incorrectly means a real headache later on. Your database could be the bottleneck in your application, if it is not designed well it can slow the application right down. We will review all your database objects to check for weaknesses, as well as common mistakes that developers make.We focus on performance issues, removing data duplication and ensuring data integrity.

Performance Review

If you're finding that your software is reaching its limits of capacity, SSW can provide a performance review of your application to target specific areas for improvements. You specify the number of simultaneous users and set performance goals, for example <2 second average response time.We will then analyze your database query design, system architecture and code structure to provide you with a set of recommendations and specifications.

Security Review

Whether it's because of industry requirement, or your peace of mind, SSW can provide a third-party review of your application to target specific issues for improvements. We look at:
    Running penetration tests with SSL labs to check how exposed your servers are.
    Passwords in .config and code
    Authentication an Authorization
    Cross site scripting and SQL injection
    Encryption of passwords and sensitive data.
    Audit trails and logging

It was a pleasure to have you in the office again.

I continue to be impressed by the quality of work and advice you provide.
