Application Development and Maintenance

Application Development and Maintenance services at QuickScale provide customized solutions to specific business problems in all the phases of project lifecycle. We undertake turnkey projects as well as projects pertaining to specific phases e.g. testing and maintenance. With increasing customer demands, enterprises are finding it hard to design, integrate, implement, and support new applications, while at the same time, maintaining and upgrading their legacy systems. To overcome the situation, managers must seek to expand development capacity, accelerate time-to-market, and build flexible distributed delivery models to negotiate risk. Following diagram broadly depicts the phases of standard development cycle where we take these phases (or the complete lifecycle) as a project.

Migration & Porting:

Independent Software Vendors (ISV) face unique challenges in that their customers demand the ISV to support certain platforms as these customers have adopted them as standards. Focus of the ISV is on building and improving its core suite of products. It is difficult for the company to invest in cross-platform porting, as it is not their area of core competency. Moreover, it is unreasonable to invest time, resources and money in porting exercises while their competition is moving aggressively in the marketplace.

QuickScale helps companies in overcoming these challenges successfully. QuickScale works as a migration and porting specialist who can take care of cross platform compatibility challenges, while companies stay focused on product innovation. QuickScale has specialized skills in this domain and has enabled several technology companies achieve cross-platform compatibility. QuickScale uses time tested methodologies and technologies for porting and migration projects.
