Software Assessment

Objective software assessment that enables you to make the right technology decisions

What We Do

29-Point Software Assessment

Through software consulting, we incorporate a 29-point software assessment of your existing business software ecosystem, checking for key indicators that fall into five distinct categories.

Vital Statistics are fundamental, high level considerations about the system, its architecture and its environment.

Key Indicators

  • Is the system maintainable?
  • Are the languages and architecture modern?
  • What plug-ins and external dependencies are you using?
  • Does it run fast enough to keep up?
  • When was it last updated?
  • Do you experience unexpected downtime?

Dev Efficiency relates to the level of performance of the development team, QA team and operations personnel.

Key Indicators

  • What is the rate of development throughput?
  • Are you spending time on maintenance or enhancements?
  • Are updates tested adequately?
  • Does development cost ebb and flow with business cycles?
  • Does your team collaborate?
  • Are your developers' skills up to date?

Process Efficiency considers the friction point between people, processes and systems.

Key Indicators

  • Does the system work for you or do you work the way the system dictates?
  • Is the system intuitive or do your people require extensive training to be proficient?
  • Can you see the data you need or do you need to download into Excel for further processing?

Security is relative. Don’t ignore threats. Instead, expose them. Then, make a plan to eliminate vulnerability.

Key Indicators

  • Do you have a crisis management team?
  • What vulnerabilities are inherent to your architecture?
  • Is the underlying code safe and inaccessible?
  • How could data be accessed, internally and externally?
  • How could data be misused, internally and externally?
  • Is your staff well-trained?

Future Readiness acknowledges that the future is on the horizon. Are you positioned to embrace it or resist it?

Key Indicators

  • Can the system handle the technologies and conditions of the future, like Internet of Things (IoT) and mobility standards of any time, any place, any device?
  • Are you able to innovate at a pace needed to win tomorrow’s customer?
  • Are you leveraging the SMAC technology architecture (social, mobile, analytics, cloud) to address key challenges and opportunities?
How We Do It

360 Degree Analysis

It starts with a conversation... We learn what the software was built to do, what your experience has been and where you need it to go. Our experienced software engineers review the code to gauge key metrics across specific categories.

It ends with a conversation... We share our findings and draw from vast experience in technology and trends to offer options and guidance. The whole experience is tailored to meet your needs and objectives.

Knowledge Is Power

Decisions Driven By Data

A software assessment provides the information you need to feel confident that your software will meet the needs of your business. The process itself is streamlined and transparent.

Learn

Good listening, along with critical thinking and analysis, leads to deep understanding of the organization, its environment and its business

Collaborate

We engender collaboration among a cross-functional team involving various departments within the organization and levels in the organizational hierarchy

Recommend

We analyze the actual problem and gain a deep understanding of possible solutions - only then can we offer recommendations that align with future goals

Case Study

iPad Learning App

The client is a private, not-for-profit day program serving students with complex learning disabilities, autism and other neurologically-based developmental disorders. Gavant developed an iPad app to help students learn and increase social skills. The app provides arcade-style games that address emotion, action and conversation.

Case Study

Wind Power Reporting

The client is a global leader in renewable energy. Gavant redesigned and enhanced a reporting system that collected and analyzed data from wind turbine grids, enabling flexible reporting of power generation and deriving maps from simulations of historical atmospheric conditions performed by a numerical weather prediction (NWP) model.

Case Study

EHR Management

The client is a nonprofit healthcare collaborative. Gavant built software to facilitate provider registration, document management and comprehensive audit reporting to medical organizations statewide. The solution was a significant step toward integrating health information exchange (HIE) across the state.

Case Study

Facility Cleaning Strategy

The client is a cleaning and maintenance service company. Gavant built a specialized software platform to model the workflow of a cleaning strategy they use to service large facilities. The software enables customers to map their facility, define specs and build job cards that route service personnel through the facility during various shifts.

Case Study

Mobile Ordering & Fulfillment

The client is a software company. Gavant developed a software product to enable resorts and other facilities to provide a mobile ordering experience to guests. Guests can browse a menu on their mobile device and place an order while backend venue staff can fulfill that order. The result was increased efficiency in the kitchen operation and an improved guest experience.
