Does your software impress or underdeliver? Are you sure of the quality of your code? If your app is slow and constantly crashing, or if your developers tell you they can’t introduce new features for fear of the app breaking down, it’s time for refactoring.
Refactoring is the process of rewriting existing code to improve the efficiency of underlying processes without changing the app’s external behavior. In other words – it fixes what’s broken that no-one can see. In order to uncover the issues you need an audit – a comprehensive review of the code that evaluates how secure, performant, and scalable it is.
We’re experts in application audit and refactoring and can help you improve the security, performance, and scalability of your software.Tell me how!
Before we can change a single line of code, we must start with an application audit to assess its state. We check if the code satisfies current security best practices, then we measure whether the app meets performance SLAs, and finally we run load and stress tests to determine its scalability.
The audit should uncover issues and threats in three key areas: security, performance, and scalability. We can then prioritize them (as critical, major, medium, or minor), depending on their severity, and propose the best and the fastest solutions to address every one of them.
Having a list of the problems and proposed solutions, we can come up with a roadmap of how to fix them. We carefully design a plan of action that allows us to both resolve critical issues first, as well as progress with fixes without having to make any major changes to other parts of the code.
Having come up with a plan, we’re ready to bring it to live. We work in sprints to progressively address all the issues from the list. Our goal here is to introduce fixes without regression, i.e. without making any changes to the app that would deteriorate user experience or impair any functionalities.
