High-Code Application Development

Future-proofing your software – to future-proof your organization

Organizations that want to stay relevant and thrive in today’s digital era have to accelerate the pace of digitization. More than that, they have to be resilient to respond to ever-changing environments. Is your IT department able to keep up with the demands of the business and develop the intuitive, scalable, nimble and secure software they need to innovate and compete?

Cegeka has the expertise to successfully complete the most complex software development projects – to help you future-proof your organization. 

Our approach sets us apart from the competition

According to Gartner, 38% of IT projects are not completed on time. Why is it that complex IT projects fail? Often, it’s a combination of factors – from poor initial scope and poor communications through to shifting expectations or a lack of technical expertise. Cegeka delivers exactly the solution that meets your needs, within time and budget, thanks to our unique, three-step approach

Software Development

Plan: foundation phase

We start every complex software development project with a series of workshops in order to fully understand your organization and expectations, define the scope and identify the technical solution needed – in close cooperation with your team.

The result of these sessions is an overview of business drivers (goal, actors, impacts and deliverables), the high-level project scope (application context, business processes, conceptual model and story mapping), the technical solution, including functional as well as non-functional requirements, risks and a budget estimate.

Build or Refactor: digital factory

Our development team, which consists of experts in a wide range of platforms and technologies, strictly adheres to a wide range of programming and testing best practices to ensure high-quality, first-time-right and future-proof software projects, products and solutions that ensure business value. In addition, security and privacy are built into every Cegeka application.

Customer testimonials

Still future-proof after 15 years:
the remarkable case of Ventouris

Software that is state of the art today, might already be a thing of the past tomorrow. Not the case for the Ventouris e-portal, which easily keeps up with the latest software developments. Quite the achievement if you know that the application handles complex administrative matters. The secret to building a software platform that effortlessly stands the test of time? Have a look behind the scenes of the application that seems immune to software rot.

Consider low-code development

Low-code application development is just what you need if you want to develop new apps quickly using visual modelling instead of extensive coding. It can be used in the following cases:

  • Relatively standard business applications with little customization
  • Rapid development and deployment to respond to business requests quickly
  • Little to no technical skills required

DevSecOps and Agile best practices

Delivering increased business value and responsiveness through rapid, high-quality service delivery

By making extensive use of DevSecOps and Agile methodologies we can deliver increased business value and responsiveness during our application projects. It is an approach to culture and platform design where automation and innovative technologies, such as containers and microservices, are essential elements.

This is all set up to assure rapid and frequent development cycles where security is seen as an integral part of the delivery.
