We create clarity and shape the future of business-critical software systems.

How do you evaluate the status of your IT systems and what conclusions do you draw?

When designing a secure and future-proof software transformation concept you can count on support from our PKS transformation experts, with their experience from over 500 successful projects. In joint projects, concepts are designed, tested and then implemented in the real world.
Throughout the process, the focus is on the subsequent users of the applications, the developers and the company as a whole. Because that’s the only way to ensure, right from the start, that you develop practical implementation scenarios that fulfil all requirements for good business software while achieving the goals set for the project.

Our four stages of support:

1. Software Assessment

It's only by knowing your current applications in detail that you’ll be able to create specific and implementable concepts for their renewal or replacement. That's why we assess and evaluate your existing systems thoroughly:

Source code analyses of Cobol, RPG, Natural or Assembler applications

Superimposition of the technical and functional views of your systems (so-called clustering)

Evaluation of the development process and its potential (DevOps)

Skill fit analyses for the developer team

The insights and information from the assessment will be presented to you as specific recommendations for action and implementation strategies, and communicated to your company management.

Documentation of the current status

Quality indicators for existing software

Recognising quick wins in the system

Verwendete Tools und Verfahren:

  • Benchmarking

TOOLS AND PROCEDURE:

  • eXplain
  • Usability analyses
  • Interviews and questionnaires
  • Code metrics
  • Benchmarking

2. CREATION OF A ROADMAP

Based on the conclusions from the software assessment and taking into account the company's goals, we work with you to create a so-called modernisation roadmap. Here, too, we look at the big picture, enhancing the assessment results by also factoring in time, costs, knowledge and resources. The result is a roadmap that is both realistic and implementable. 

We pay special attention to identifying the added business value of the transformation: Our goal is to ensure that each step of the renewal process creates a financial or strategic benefit for your company.

Delivery Gap

Prioritising of implementation steps

Ability to plan resources and budgets
IT strategy that follows company strategy

TOOLS AND PROCEDURES:

  • Brainstorming
  • SWOT analyses
  • Project planning (agile or waterfall)
  • Project calculation
  • Risk evaluation

3. STEP-BY-STEP IMPLEMENTATION

Especially when several valuable transformation measures can be derived from the assessment, it’s important to proceed with the implementation step by step, so that neither the project team nor the company becomes overwhelmed.

Our experienced project leads contribute their experience in software architecture and the use of cutting-edge technology, as well as their change management skills. In addition, particularly critical or important aspects are generally safeguarded and validated using proofs of concept.

TOOLS AND PROCEDURES:

  • Storyboarding
  • Prototyping
  • Project monitoring and management
  • Steering committees
  • “Celebrate successes”

4. KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER

Enabling your team is a central aspect of our work. Because once the system has been transformed, we want you to be able to keep it in a good condition and to take care of future developments independently. That's why we work closely with you in the projects, thereby continuously transferring knowledge to your team.

In addition, we support you with various targeted training measures – for beginners and experts – in the form of individual coaching or group seminars.
