Outsourcing services

To make outsourcing services, our company has a highly trained staff for each of the stages of the software development process, from conception to system deployment. We also provide other related edges such as business processes modeling and quality management throughout the process.

Below are each of the Outsourcing activities in which we specialize.

  1. Business process modeling
  2. System requirements capture
  3. System engineering design
  4. Database design
  5. System implementation engineering proposal
  6. Programming
  7. System deployment
  8. System architecture
  9. Testing
  10. Quality management

1. Business process modeling

To develop a system it begins of the business processes to automate. If the processes are not well defined or known, could be negative consequences for the development of the system and generally for the operation of the business.

For this reason, a specialist in business processes modeling, is an invaluable resource to provide comprehensive and high quality service, as a starting point for system engineering and providing added value to customers to identify possible improvements to its processes.

2. System requirements capture

The correct definition of the system requirements are the basis for the expected results by customers at the end of development; but customers are not always able to express what they need and in some cases there are some functionalities that although are very necessary, they have not yet been identified as possible items to computerize.

A specialist in requirements capture or systems analyst, must have a comprehensive training to identify computerization needs, through a conversation without using technical language with the customer, whether submitted directly by the client or suggested by self-specialist. When having the vision of the customer, the specialist must provide a system that exceeds the customer expectations.

3. System engineering design

Object-oriented programming has now invaded all areas and languages in the systems development world. One of its great advantages is the organization and structuring of the systems to make clearer its codification, maintenance, and generally prolong the life of the system through versions and development teams.

The work of the system design engineers is to understand from the philosophy of object-oriented programming the processes to computerize, to create a well-defined class structure and apply appropriate design patterns that help to create a robust and scalable application, synchronized with the programming language and defined development tools.

4. Database design

Nowadays, there are very few applications that do not have data persistence through a database manager, but a bad definition in the structure of the database (BD), or its stored procedures and functions, can bring as a result: unnecessary growth of the database on the hard drive, delay in operation with data, consistency problems, among others.

A database designer builds its structure, through the problem concept relations, even from the definition of the class structure, to have a representation in the data relationships as close to the software needs, where avoid data redundancy and unnecessary relationships. This should be conceived from the correct normalization of the database and the best use of the resources offered by database managers, such as creating views, stored procedures, functions, the use of transactions, indexes, etc.

5. System implementation engineering proposal

When we talk about implementing a system among developers, the first thing that comes to mind is already writing source code, but technically there are some elements to consider if it is developed under certain standards and mainly in large and long-reach systems.

The components engineer conceives the structuring of the system from the point of view of the physical components, such as source files, executable, configuration files or additional resources for the use of the system. This structure is conceived from the modules and interfaces defined in the system design, creating different subsystems. The latter is then translated into the directory structure and physical files, both in the development stage, with the organization of source files, as in the production stage, with the organization of executable, binary libraries and other resources depending on system deployment.

6. Programming

Programming a system is already materializing all the engineering conception of it. Make correct or incorrect way can derail the entire work of the system design engineering team. The code must be clear, concise and guided by the definition of the team.

A programmer with the ability to get along with software engineers and with the knowledge to establish a common language for building software, is vital to flow development and teamwork; adding its experience in the programming language defined, efficient coding algorithms and design patterns preset. A programmer with these conditions creates the confidence to work on projects with highly professional solutions.

7. System deployment

Today it is very common to have a distributed architecture for a system, either client-server, service-oriented systems, multilayer, among others. Therefore the system is not a simple executable on a PC, but has parts distributed by a set of devices, and in turn, uses other devices such as scanners, printers, automation equipment, etc.

The deployment engineer conceives the distribution of each part of the system by the various devices as well as interaction with other external devices. It is then responsible for packaging components and make the deployment of the system, which ensures the proper functioning and oversees all testing process and system transition to the customer. This engineer must consider the constraints of security, support and communication devices.

8. System architecture

The architectural design of a system is one of the tasks of highest responsibility and expertise in a development team. It is the complete view from the definition of processes to computerize to final deployment, and anticipation of future versions of the system. So the architect is the center on which turns the construction of a system.

The software architect is a role that is created based on the experience, bearing the interpretation of the system from many angles. To define the base architecture is its responsibility, and is involved in each of the stages of development by identifying the architecturally significant elements, on which it must pay special attention to keep the base line of architecture. To define the suitable architectural patterns and technologies is another of its responsibilities, to carry the development process correctly and with the basis for maintenance and future developments.

9. Testing

Software testing is one of the key activities in the software development because they allow uncover different kinds of errors before delivery to the customer or the use of the product.

The levels of testing we handled are: unit, integration, regression, system and customer acceptance, all at different stages in the life cycle of the software but following a single goal: to find errors and differences in the product or system specified; using white box and/or black box testing methods.

10. Quality management

Quality management within the software development process involves four stages: planning, control, assurance and quality improvement.

In the quality planning, it define the quality objectives of the project, the processes and product quality control and the assurance activities necessary to ensure the customer gets a product with quality.

The quality assurance ensures that products or components of products developed meet the demands of customers.

Stage quality control is responsible for detecting non-conformities in the process and/or product, in order to deliver the product to the customer with the least amount of non-conformities according to the specified requirements.

Finally, quality improvement aims to design and implement actions to improve the performance of processes and generated work products.
