For starters, let’s assume you are someone with a need for software development – and in this era of technology, there’s certainly no dearth of necessity for software. From simple calculators processing logic and word processors, software has matured to running on-demand services and trading in digital currency today.
So, naturally, we have several in the technology investment community talking about software eating the world, and software eating software development. Today, developers are using software to create beautiful products around the world that promises to automate almost everything and weave rich user experiences. Why this focus on software? Well, because hardware is becoming a commodity; and hardware architecture is surely easier to comprehend. For instance, in order to have an application up and running, you’ll only need computer connected to the internet via a webpage. Far more complex systems would require powerful servers, storage systems and cloud-powered backup. Essentially, the physical architecture is more or less a complex and sophisticates set of machines, cables and electronic equipment.
The importance of software architecture
Software controls device capabilities and capacity; it is the strategic differentiator and key to driving monetization and profitability. Wait, but we know this all too well, why is software architecture important? The integration between hardware and software development life cycles is a significant challenge, one that requires companies to plough through planning and integrating their business around software strategies to create viable synergies and foster a healthy ecosystem.
At its very core, the architecture of a software application is seldom flawless. Continuously evolving, software is never complete, and teams are often found trying to shoot a moving target. Today, with the effusion of cutting edge technologies, everyone is overwhelmed by the power of the cloud, the ubiquity of mobile and insights from the tsunami of data. For instance, the cloud space has blossomed into a thicket over the past couple of years with numerous “service” models: from software as a service (SaaS) to platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service, these service platforms deliver everything from storage to security and even end user applications packaged on a monthly statement with no hassles.
Where are we going with this?
Technology consulting and software architecture is a big part of Qruize: it’s our sweet spot and we’ve embarked on a journey to flaunt it and help our customers by doing what we do best.
We understand that software architecture is the one thing that separated a behemoth application from a maintainable solution. Good architecture isn’t necessarily clever of nimble architecture; let’s not even get started talking about 1000 lines of code here! Even if your code is clean, it doesn’t translate to a maintainable solution directly; organizing the code base by reducing unnecessary complexity helps keep things manageable.
We’ve been able to surprise our clientele by helping them invest in their architecture: our code does what we expect it to and builds things our customers want to!
So here we are, trying to narrow down our focus and strategies a little bit, redesigning our digital home, streamlining our end to end operations and business development functions and weaving our story together in the process. Our aim is to become a true extension of our customers’ businesses, creating value and maximising the potential of technology.
