Resource Logic Software Development
Businesses have to 'start from scratch' under a number of circumstances:
The classic 'new industry' example is the internet browser. One of the
more massive databases is the human genome. Neither of these
examples can point to any meaningful ancestor.
- The business is a startup in a new industry
- The application is being moved to a new platform
- The organization develops a 'special need'
- An existing software vendor has abandoned it's product
At least four platform migrations can be imagined in the current
Business applications that are shifted to a browser based interface are
often intended to meet the need for remote access, in some cases via
mobile devices. It becomes desirable to shift business rules from the
client side to the server side, and within that from the rendering code
to the query code. A COBOL program is not simply converted to HTML,
Visual Basic .NET, and ASP .NET; much of the core processing is
shifted to Transaction SQL (T-SQL). The 'old' system used a language,
the 'new' one uses different ones at different points in the process.
- Mainframe to Internet
- Character (Dos or 'dumb terminal') to Windows Forms
- Character (Dos or 'dumb terminal') to Internet
- Windows Forms to Internet
Business managers may become progressively more frustrated with the way
inventory records have been kept, and at some point may want a program
written that 'cleans' up the mess. Two companies might merge, and the
acquiring company may need to merge data from the acquired company into
it's own system. Such tasks are not merely done in reports; it is
necessary to set up the business rules, write data manipulation code,
test it, and deploy it for use on live data.
