When businesses talk about moving software to the cloud, often what they mean is simply migrating existing software by replacing a traditional hosting provider with a cloud-based provider, or even developing new applications in a classic way and then deploying them in the cloud.
Custom Software Development Blog by Syberry
When businesses are searching for a vendor for their software projects, the number-one question on their minds is often how much the project will cost. But unlike products we purchase off the shelf, custom software solutions don’t come with price tags, exactly. Instead, vendors work with clients to fully understand their vision, their needs, and their budget. Then, they can use that information to define the scope (which includes specific goals, including deliverables, features, functions, and tasks) and provide an estimated cost and timeline for the particular project.
At Syberry, we pride ourselves on high quality standards, and one of the ways we maintain those standards is by keeping development and quality assurance separate on every project, from beginning to end.
Couldn’t the developers test the software themselves? Doesn’t a separate QA team just add to the cost and extend the timeline? Sure, but we’re confident that separate QA is worth the extra resources, and the upfront investment will likely save both time and money in the long run.
One of the most common concerns about migrating software systems to the cloud is whether the cloud is truly secure enough to keep the data and systems store there safe.
It’s a fair question. After all, like the money in our IRAs and mutual funds, when we don’t really know where our assets are — when they’re abstracted into some nebulous, intangible system — it’s difficult not to wonder whether they’re really there and really secure. But, as one New York Times writer put it, both our money and our software are actually safer this way.
As passengers, we love to complain about airlines. From delayed flights to cramped seats and ridiculous carry-on policies to militant security procedures, there’s a lot to gripe about. But from a business perspective, there’s one important thing we can borrow from the likes of American, Southwest, and even United: the commitment to constant improvement.
