São Paulo, Brazil (PRWEB) September 17, 2008
Advus, a strategic consulting company that specializes in innovative and advanced technology software development, has teamed with DA Software, a SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) product and services company that squarely addresses implementing software architecture standardization, and the reuse of software components, to meet the demands by today's fast-paced and changing business environment. The concepts of SOA and Reuse of pre-tested software components is well known, but many companies continue to struggle in how to implement these programs.
Advus has two key practice areas that help clients like Bank Itaú implement the benefits of SOA. In the Software Change Management practice area, by using SOA/Reuse tools, the use of software asset repositories are being leveraged, changed code is being inspected for adherence to standards, audit trails are being verified for approval/compliance to regulations, and tracking is available for defect/response remediation. In the Business Process Management (BPM) practice, specifically in IT software development, teams are educated and acquainted with SOA, and processes are implemented to reduce custom code already available in controlled libraries. DA Software, by providing the actual product solutions, enables the Advus practice areas to help clients succeed in the actual identification, creation and management of reusable assets, increasing the agility and quality in software development, while reducing costs.
"Although there has been progress in the largest Brazilian companies to embrace SOA and Reuse strategies, I have to agree with Gartner's latest 2008 industry assessment that BPM/SOA initiatives are moving at a snail's pace at a time when businesses, more than ever, require immediate faster software development response to change." said Sergio Ferdandes, Manager for Advus's Business Process Management Practice.
"We have studied the obstacles that make SOA adoption hard to implement and control in creating our product solutions." said Kleber Bacili, CTO for DA Software. "Where we see the partnership of Advus and DA Software a win/win for clients is creating an end-to-end program of tools and processes to implement a SOA/Software Change Management standardization and control process that ultimately changes the way developers address the Software Development Life Cycle. Between our two companies we can help developers speed the adoption of standardization and reuse, in a way that also addresses compliance and approvals in change management, and gaining what we know will be ongoing cost reductions, better quality software and a client's ability to adapt to change."
