Making Custom Applications Affordable

 

As any software project manager can tell you that the cost of software is not the technology but the cost of development. That directly relates to professional man hours. In a book written many many years ago called "The Mythical Man Month", (Brooks, 1975) (ref) we were informed that building a brick wall has nothing in common with building a software program.

 

A Brick Wall Build as a Software Development Contrast

 

If it takes one worker one month to build a brick wall it is in theory possible for two workers to build that same wall in two weeks. In actual practice it may take less than those two theoretical weeks depending on the level of communication between the two workers and their individual expertise. This idea is common sense to most people. If you want the wall in one week then you use four workers.

 

Software Espionage

Software Espionage

 

The very process you use to provide the services and products for your customers is mirrored in the settings and screens of your software solution. Taking your software and running it on another PC without permission can be harmful in many ways. If you have paid for the development and have been intimately involved in the development process this would be a greater exposure.

Software Application Security

 

How can a business know it is secure?

 

There are a number of different concerns that arise when understanding software security.

 

Data Privacy

 

This has to do with sensitive information that would expose your customers or your business to harm. This could be as simple as social security and birthdays or as complicated as contracts and proprietary processes.

Rich Content Applications

 

Look and Feel plus Function

 

According to the Pew Research, as of January 2014, 90% of American adults own and regularly use a cell phone. Furthermore, more than half of American adults own smartphones. As of May, 2013, 63% of adult cell owners use their phones to go online. (ref) (PRC, 2014) Mobile devices- particularly mobile telephones - are continuing to gain acceptance as targets for multimedia-rich applications. Mobile phones in particular have become an indispensable work tool within most companies. There is little doubt that software developers and manufacturers will continue the drive to bring the functionality and features found on PCs and laptops to mobile devices. With the demand for these devices from the consumer there is little doubt that software developers and manufacturers will continue the drive to bring the functionality and features found on PC’s and laptops to mobile devices.

Employees And Other Users

 

“We know what we like and we like what we know”. Have you ever heard that from your employees? Gaining buy-in from your employees when it comes to implementing new systems or making changes can be a difficult battle because we become comfortable using the same system day in and day out and therefore we like it. When we are faced with having to learn something new it is uncomfortable and often times we will not like it just because it is different and we don’t yet “know” what it can do or how easy it can be to use it.

 

Some simple strategies that can help to overcome employee resistance:

 

Overcoming Resistance

Overcoming Resistance

 

All change will meet resistance. Management concerns are generally cost based and process based. The number one objection most employees or software users raise is the difficulty of learning a new system. One of the best ways to overcome resistance from management and employees is to prepare.

Cost Justification

 

How Is The Cost Of A New Software Solution Justifiable?

 

When a business decides to undertake a software acquisition, they should be concerned with how soon the software solution will be in production, and how long it will take to earn back their investment. This is called Return on Investment (ROI). It is important to look at how a new software system will increase revenue and decrease costs. You also need to look at the cost it takes to acquire the application, the time needed to make it part of your business and how long it will take to recover those investments.

 

ROI Consists Of Two Distinct Pieces, Benefits And Payback Time.

 

Getting Started

Getting Started

 

Software currently can only be effective when coupled with a team of good users, good products and services as well as at least an adequate cash flow. Because software exists as part of a larger business system you must take “inventory” of all your business needs and requirements for a software solution to deliver increases in effective management, efficiency, productivity and cost savings over the long term. By following this step by step approach you will begin to develop a clear picture of what functionality your software solution should possess to meet your needs and expectations.

 

Identify the business issues that, when solved, deliver the greatest benefit to your company.

Determining The Best Software Solution

 

To determine the best software solution for your specific business situation you need to look at several important factors:

 

Time: Evaluate Operations

 

Time is valuable and it is especially true when it comes to running a business. Let’s face facts. The time we have is limited. There are 24 hours in every day. What truly matters is how we spend that time. In the case of running a business every minute you can save translates into cost savings. Labor is typically the highest business cost center of any business. If you can save time therefore, you can generally significantly reduce labor costs and increase savings.
