Technical Debt Framework

“Technical debt represents the problems and inefficiencies introduced into code whether as a compromise to meet deadlines, lack of experience or expertise or by code cloning,” Rhodes told the audience.

Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 03, 2014

In Anaheim, CTO, John Rhodes presented “Business Agility – Unlocking Your Legacy Code” to SHARE attendees. https://share.confex.com/share/122/webprogram/Session14788.html. For some, the concept of automating the process of legacy modernization was new. “Too many have given up on the idea of being able to take advantage of this code to exploit web, mobile and more. But with the right tools, these goals are achievable,” noted Rhodes.

CM First can help customers see that there are better ways to modernize – methods people haven’t considered. CM First’s goal is to help people exploit working code while being able to exploit Cloud or Big Data and mobilize their business applications.

Another area covered in the application modernization strategy is remediating technical debt. “Technical debt represents the problems and inefficiencies introduced into code whether as a compromise to meet deadlines, lack of experience or expertise or by code cloning,” Rhodes told the audience. “What made sense at the time may be costing companies a great deal in risk, performance, security and especially the maintainability of the code. Technical debt often also makes it impossible to exploit new technologies.”

Rhodes presented the requirement and use case for CM MetaAnalytics, a software solution that automatically analyzes and inventory existing software assets. By finding technical debt in the software, companies can eliminate the constraints that hold back modernization efforts. http://www.cmfirstgroup.com/products/cm-meta-analytics/

SHARE has been in existence for over five decades providing high-quality education and resources in the realm of enterprise computing. Many of the Fortune 500 are represented at each conference, as well as government and university IT experts. For CM First, SHARE is a perfect opportunity to ‘share’ best practices and new approaches to challenging problems

Rhodes hopes to present additional material on the subject, focusing on security and performance issues with legacy code at the SHARE conference in Pittsburgh, PA, August 3-8, 2014. http://www.share.org/p/cm/ld/fid=438
