1. I.T. Strategies for Hard Times

Difficult economic periods call for hard decisions. It's easy to be tempted to cut back on your IT expenditures but that can be a major mistake.

I.T. is the goose that's been laying the golden egg for businesses -for decades, now.   You don't want to starve the goose; you want to tune it up. It's crystal-clear that computing has enabled businesses to reduce costs, and increase productivity.

Custom-written software is one of the major ways that businesses gain advantages in savings, profits and productivity.  The reason is pretty simple: No two businesses, even in the same industry, do things the same way.  Mass-produced software, even for a specific industry, seldom addresses every requirement of a given business.

2. Technology Debt: Is it getting to your bottom line? Technology Debt is a rather loose bucket in which we can lump many things that come back to bite your projects. Put simply, it's like the old Fram oil filter slogan: "Pay me now - or pay me later." Unless a project has a very short life expectancy, the things that are put off today will almost certainly have to be revisited and dealt with later - sometimes with "interest." Here, we talk about what comprises technology debt, and how to keep it from degrading the profitability of our efforts.

3. Software Testing? We Do That! Everything about our web site makes it pretty clear that we specialize in custom application development. Less frequently mentioned is another service we provide: Professional software testing. Software testing is a discipline unto itself. It's certainly related to development, but developers aren't the best testers. That's why Prestwood retains highly experienced, professional software testers. This is a service we make available - whether or not we're involved in a product's actual development. This article provides more details about this service.
