Lifecyle Management: Enterprise-Level Development for Mid-Markets

Most mid-market businesses rely on developers for custom software and applications, but what about predictable costs or products that function? Who do you rely on for long-term support and product enhancement? Who is going to help you invest in digital transformation for your business when you don’t have the internal IT resources to take your big idea to the next level? Contact Red Hawk Technologies for new ways to thrive and empower your business.

Many executives and IT leaders turn to off-the-shelf-solutions for development due to cost and convenience, only to later realize the specific needs of their business are not being met. Additionally, most off-the-shelf-solutions don’t come with any long-term support for when things inevitably start to go wrong.

Think of it as being the proud owner of a brand new rowboat. Your recent purchase will finally allow you to get out on the water and become one with nature. There’s just one problem: To save money, you opted for a rowboat without oars. Your purchase may get you on the water, but without the necessary tools to help you maintain and get where you’re going; you’re up a creek with no paddle. And that’s time and money being wasted.

Reduce Financial and Operational Risk

You need an experienced software product development team that won’t leave you stranded when a great idea turns bad. You need the enterprise-level development (rowboat) and lifecycle management (oars) to ensure your custom software or application evolves as your business evolves. Your software application is an asset, and needs regular maintenance and service so that you can realize your ROI.

Don’t throw your money away on a purchase that isn’t customized to satisfy the short- and long-term needs of your business. Red Hawk Technologies offers enterprise-level development with bundled services that provide:

  • Custom development.
  • Enhancement.
  • Maintenance.
  • Technical support.
  • Fixed monthly fee.
  • On-time, on-budget delivery.

Mid-market companies face similar problems regardless of industry. You are large enough to need “something more” to spur growth and streamline operations, but not large enough to have a full-time software development and support staff. This is where Red Hawk Technologies provides your competitive edge. We’ve facilitated growth in mid-market companies just like yours for over a decade. Companies investing in innovation are our specialty. Bundling development, enhancement, maintenance and technical support services for a fixed monthly fee reduces your financial and operational risk, providing the stability you need to achieve your ROI.

What Is Software Development Lifecycle Management and Can I Afford It?

Software development lifecycle management or SDLC, is a process that aims to effectively develop software with the lowest cost, highest quality and in the shortest time. Research from studies at the University of California refer to SDLC as a series of steps or phases that provide a model for the development and lifecycle management of an application or piece of software. This process includes step-by-step guidance for how to develop, extend and maintain your software system throughout a series of several different stages:

  • Requirements gathering
  • Planning
  • Design
  • Building
  • Testing
  • Deployment
  • End of life

The software development lifecycle management process is commonly used with large corporations or enterprises and is not alway the most affordable solution for mid-markets. So how can your company receive enterprise-level development at mid-market rates?
