Project Salvage & Recovery

Protect your business's future success by salvaging your project from potential disruptions.

Risks of Poor Software Development:

  • Budget Overrun:

    Many software development projects exceed their budgets due to technical challenges that conflict with business objectives. Paying for developers to learn on the job can be avoided.

  • Security Gaps:

    Failing to protect your solution can lead to additional expenses, such as correcting security issues or dealing with the consequences of a security breach.

  • Low Quality:

    The likelihood of delivering a bug-free product decreases, particularly if your development partner doesn't align the transparent QA process to ensure that the solution meets the quality and performance requirements.

  • Poor Performance:

    Limited access to software project metrics and poor communication from developers increases the likelihood of receiving unsatisfactory deliverables.

  • Bad User Experience:

    Developing software without considering end-user requirements and feedback can lead to an awkward interface, resulting in negative reviews and low customer satisfaction rates.

  • Architecture Oversights:

    Issues with scalability and flexibility can hinder business growth, making it difficult to expand and adapt the product to the market.

Our Services

Architech NYC offers comprehensive software development services to enhance the value of your project and address any vulnerabilities that may exist. With a team of highly experienced solution architects, software engineers, business analysts, and QA engineers, we can revitalize your software and ensure that it meets your desired standards. Our expertise in tackling various project issues allows us to provide software project rescue services, including architecture overview, refactoring, and solution reengineering, among others. Whatever your software needs may be, we're here to help you breathe new life into your project.

  • Source Code Review:

    Our team performs a thorough source code review to identify and address any issues that may be compromising the solution's stability. This process involves close collaboration with your developers to understand the product's workings and vet project documentation. Our source code review may include:

    • Static and dynamic code analysis;

    • Identification of security and design flaws;

    • Preparation of a code review report with guidelines for fixing vulnerabilities.

  • Solution Re-Engineering:

    Outdated technology can make maintenance and support tasks daunting. Our re-engineering services allow you to minimize maintenance costs, easily update your app with new features, and scale it up for new markets. We determine the best approach, whether it's complete code refactoring or elimination of technical debt, and re-engineer the system using the latest technology. Our solution re-engineering services involve:

    • A comprehensive solutions audit and business analysis;

    • Re-architecturing;

    • Optimization of performance, resilience, and scalability;

    • Disparate system integrations;

    • Functionality extension through APIs or custom code.

  • Performance Optimization:

    We offer performance engineering services from both software and supporting infrastructure perspectives to eliminate the risk of system failure, increased maintenance, or other operational costs. Our engineers run tests to determine system stability and identify specific vulnerabilities, then efficiently configure potentially disruptive components. Our performance optimization services include:

    • Software architecture analysis;

    • High-load, fault-tolerant architecture design;

    • Dynamic load balancing;

    • Quality of Experience (QoE) and Quality of Service (QoS) analytics;

    • Performance testing, load, stress, and bandwidth testing.

  • Quality Assurance:

    Our manual and automated software testing services ensure the visibility of results, allowing us to build the respective QA strategy for further execution. Whether we conduct code refactoring, solution re-engineering, or performance engineering, our extensive testing expertise enables us to provide the following QA services:

    • Web, API, and mobile automated tests;

    • Functional, usability, data migration, and other tests;

    • QA reporting.

  • Software Security Audit:

    Software security vulnerabilities can have serious consequences for businesses, from system disruptions to breach of legislation. Our comprehensive software security audit ensures that security standards and requirements are met. Our audit includes:

    • Software vulnerability assessment;

    • Internal and external threat identification;

    • OWASP compliance;

    • Software architecture analysis to reduce the risk of breach due to third-party integrations.

Recovering Your Software Project:

To minimize risks and bridge the gap between your existing software solution and its desired functionality, our software project rescue process includes a recovery plan, recovery, testing, and final launch. Here's what you can expect from our project recovery process:

  • Investigation:

    Our team will perform a thorough analysis of your project, including your progress, data, and delivery requirements, to determine your current state and desired outcome.

  • Strategy:

    We work collaboratively with you to develop a realistic and effective project recovery strategy that aligns with your goals and timeline.

  • Development:

    If software development is necessary, our experienced team of developers, project managers, business analysts, and infrastructure engineers will work with you to create the software you need.

  • Recovering and Debugging:

    We offer debugging services for existing systems, recovering lost code, and repairing corrupted code to ensure smooth functionality.

  • Support and Maintenance:

    We are committed to providing ongoing support following the implementation of your software and can add new features as needed. We can also provide training to your staff to enable them to manage the software independently if desired.

Salvage vs Rewrite: Making the Right Choice

In some cases, a thorough software assessment reveals that the most logical step is to perform a complete rewrite of the application from the ground up. This may be due to poorly written code, flawed business logic or architecture, or the use of antiquated technology. However, a complete rewrite is not always the best course of action. Our company has the expertise to determine whether to salvage or rewrite software projects, depending on various factors such as the extent of the issues and the level of risk involved. Our team of experienced software engineers, project managers, business analysts, and infrastructure engineers works in collaboration with you to evaluate your software project's current state and determine the best way forward. If salvaging the software is the most appropriate solution, our expert team can recover and debug current systems, potentially recover lost code, and repair corrupted code as necessary. We can also provide ongoing support following the completion and implementation of the software, adding new features as required. In cases where a complete rewrite is necessary, we have the right mindset, decades of relevant experience and expertise, fortitude, and dedicated US-based software engineers to create a new software solution that meets your business needs. Our team will work with you to create a project recovery plan, determine a realistic timeline, and ensure that your software goals are achieved. Whether you choose to salvage or rewrite your software project, Architech NYC has the technical knowledge and expertise to ensure a successful outcome.
