SDLC and OutSystems
Optimize your low-code development process
Many organizations have recently lifted their IT performance to new heights by moving from traditional coding to low-code, and from waterfall to Agile development. Since then, complete legacy systems and business applications have been built and delivered in a matter of months instead of years.
In many organizations, this positive momentum is causing IT to continue to grow and become an increasingly important part of business operations. IT is becoming leading instead of supporting to the business.
The inhibiting edge of low-code
With such strong growth, new problems may arise. More software is built and delivered at lightning speed, and additional manpower is hired to meet the growing demand. The overview gets lost and the number of errors and bugs in the software increases. As a result, the quality of the software deteriorates. Maintenance and repair costs are rising all the time. The development of new functionalities grids to a halt.
Organizations can regain control by automating their development process with CI/CD pipelines. But with low-code platforms, the implementation is often complex and results can lag. Moreover, this form of software development lifecycle optimization (SDLC) requires a change in culture and behavior. All in all, a far-reaching process.
At CoolProfs, we hear this story on a regular basis. So we decided to develop a solution to help organizations automate and standardize their SDLC. It is coupled with a culture change. In this way, the promise of low-code is attainable again.
The CoolProfs SDLC-Suite for OutSystems
We have supplemented the standard functionality the OutSystems low-code platform with existing software components and other, customized technology. In the process, we have standardized and 100% automated CI/CD solution methods for OutSystems. The products, applications and components are bundled in our SDLC-Suite.
The SDLC-Suite contains all the technology you need to optimize your development process for OutSystems environments. Of course, particular attention has been paid to risk management; compliance and security measures are built in as standard.
Advantages of SDLC optimalization
Companies and their IT teams experience many benefits from improved SDLC. The software development process becomes more predictable, manageable, flexible, scalable, faster and of higher quality. As a result, IT can create more value for the business faster. Plus, IT teams enjoy their work that much more.
The CoolProfs SDLC-Suite makes:
A successful, fully automated CI/CD pipeline requires a change in the way of working together with the technology. The starting point is Shift Left, or daily focus on quality, testing and performance, supported by:
In order to gain maximum optimization from an SDLC, clear working agreements and lines of communication are needed. CoolProfs has developed a Way of Working that goes hand in hand with the SDLC-Suite and is implemented in your organization.
