Importance of Application Maintenance After Custom Development

Custom Software Development is an approach that is highly required by companies, institutions and government agencies across the United States. It refers to designing of software applications for a specific user or group of users within an organization. These applications are designed to specifically address users' needs more specifically than generalized traditional off-the-shelf software. SGS Technologie understands this as we are an experienced software development company and mobile application development company in Jacksonville, Florida with nearly two decades of experience. We have developed customized software applications for multiple clients from government and private sectors from bases in Tallahassee-Florida and Austin-Texas, in addition to our headquarters.  These experiences have confirmed our belief that software development is only a beginning of a software’s lifecycle. It must be maintained and upgraded to match further advancements in technology along with rising business needs.

The importance of maintaining custom-developed applications are elaborated in the following points:

Fixing Bugs

This is one of the most important requirements of periodical application maintenance. Continuous use along with sync with third party applications among other factors may be some reasons for the emergence of bugs in these apps. Web maintenance processes eliminates errors in code, in hardware, operating systems or any part of software. An experienced web application maintenance company such as SGS Technologie will do this without causing any impact on rest of the existing software.

Enhancing Capabilities

Technology is advancing every hour and an enterprise web application must match up with this pace. Moreover, changing trends along with variations in user preferences also give the need for continuously enhanced software applications. Examples are improvement in features and functions to make solution compatible with varying market environment. Software maintenance cycles enhance software platforms, work pattern, hardware upgrade, compilers, and all other aspects that affect system workflow. SGS recommends enhancing the capabilities of a software solution by applying software maintenance services regularly.

Eliminating Outdated Functions

These issues may be rampant in legacy applications. Certain functionalities may be outdated because owing to the lack of continuous updating or their current irrelevance. Besides, they will occupy unwanted space in a system thus impacting its performance. Software maintenance procedure ensures that such elements of UI and coding are removed and replaced. It also facilitates the system to be adaptive and cope with changing circumstances.

Performance Improvement

Our developers detect issues through testing and resolve them for improving performance. Data and coding limitations along with reengineering are featured in our performance improvement processes. We this keep the software secure from vulnerabilities. That it, the software solution will not succumb to external threats such hacking,  unauthorized access or malware.

Compliance with Laws

There are several state and federal guidelines related to software development that a software application like a web app or mobile app must comply with. ADA and WCAG are two of them. Software maintenance is mandatory for ensuring that the system remains in compliance with the latest versions of these laws.

These aspects highlight the importance of software maintenance and enhancement of legacy applications. We will be soon expanding our software development offices to include Tampa-Florida and Clearwater Florida. Reach out to SGS Technologie for more discussions along with a detailed analyzes of your existing applications to determine areas of improvement.
