Custom Software - A Successful Approach

Quality software development means more than writing good code. It is a well-orchestrated process that begins with a thorough specification and a clear understanding between all parties involved.

To reach a successfully completed project, the lifecycle of software development must include continuous monitoring and progress reporting along with a judicious use of technology and a disciplined, consistent methodology. Cimmaron Software believes that every client is unique but not every part of a software project is unique to the point that it requires a custom software solution. We leverage existing in-house software as well as third party tools and components to help us deliver your project in record time.

Your company's market position is attained through the hard work and perseverance of your employees, managers, and partners. Your software should be there to support your continuous drive to succeed and help you differentiate your company from its competition. It should not however, erect walls that prevent you from attaining your business goals. Your business depends on software but software is not your business... It is ours.

Even though flexibility and manageability is of paramount importance, delivery times and reasonable costs are just as important factors to consider. When you partner with Cimmaron Software, you can be sure that your money and time are being spent on developing and understanding your company.

Development Methodology

At the heart of Cimarron's success is a repeatable process that we implement for every product we create. This process serves as our roadmap to deliver a project that exceeds your expectations, delivered on time and on budget. Every successfully completed project in the past has added to our knowledge base and enabled us to determine the critical elements for a successful software implementation.

  • Analysis - First we meet with your domain experts to learn your business from their point of view. We study and document existing applications, workflow, and business processes to build a foundation of understanding based on the way your business looks today. We then look forward to see how the new system should look. We work with you to identify improvements, leverage points, and possible areas of risk. Proper business analysis is the bedrock upon which every successful business system is built. Companies that do not apply a rigorous and disciplined process to the understanding of your business will not be able to create software that meets your needs today, much less accommodate your future growth. Cimmaron Software understands that excellence in software development cannot be attained without a thorough understanding of the business processes. Our goal is not only to understand your business the way it is today, but also to gain an insight of where it will be tomorrow.
  • Design - We utilize a tandem of in-depth specifications and rapid prototyping to ensure that both our developers and our clients have a crystal clear view of how the application will be designed. Our prototyping methodology allows you to see each screen that will be developed not only on paper but also with actual screens that you can click, type, and use to give you the look and feel of the product prior to the code creation phase. This allows us to go through an iterative design process with the client without the cost of unnecessary code modification. All of our specification documents are available for review by our clients throughout the development cycle.
  • Development - To reach a successfully completed project, the lifecycle of software development must include continuous monitoring and progress reporting along with a judicious use of technology and a disciplined, consistent methodology. Cimmaron Software believes that every client is unique but not every part of a software project is unique to the point that it requires a custom software solution. We leverage existing in-house software as well as third party tools and components to help us deliver your project in record time. Our existing code base is substantial and proven by thousands of users working with the solutions we currently have in production. This allows you take advantage of vast code libraries at no cost to you. Each of the screens that we develop for your business rides on top of a layer of existing functionality that acts as a foundation for our software. This existing foundation allows for deployment, error handling, navigation, database communication, performance tracking, and other building blocks essential to a scalable, reliable enterprise application.

XAP (extensible application platform)

XAP (extensible application platform) allows Cimmaron's clients to leverage years of software development encapsulated a single powerful platform. Enterprise class applications across a wide variety of disparate industries demand a common foundation of functionality including, user management, security, data analysis, performance monitoring, and deployment.

Cimmaron has now combined all of these modules and tools into its XAP software. XAP is the foundation upon which any custom software application developed by Cimmaron Software is launched.

Buy or Build

Business today is faced with ever changing challenges and the software you use to meet them is critical to your success. In the information age, often the only thing that differentiates you from your competitors is your technological infrastructure and its ability to support your ideas, processes, and competitive challenges. In order to gain this competitive edge, companies today can choose between two paths:

  1. The first choice is to buy one or more software packages that most closely fit the company.
  2. The second choice is to create a solution that is designed from the ground up to be as unique as the individual business.

When deciding between these two options, companies should keep some of the following factors in mind:

  • "Off the Shelf" packages are not written for your business. In fact, they are created in the hope that not only will your company purchase it, but that every one of your competitors will do so as well.
  • "Off the Shelf" packages require various levels of customization. Since most of this software is written to be as general as possible, in order for it to be truly useful, it will need to be customized for your needs.

On the other hand, when creating a custom software solution you know that you are getting what your business needs, because you are an integral part of designing that solution. Some of the many benefits of this approach are:

  • The software is written specifically for your business. No other company is like your company and your software should support that. Investments you have made in selecting the best people, processes, and partners are too valuable to be sacrificed by selecting a solution created for someone else. With a custom solution you decide what your business needs to gain that competitive edge. You decide what data you need and how it relates to your business.
  • You own the finished product. Once your solution is complete you can always make customizations to it in any manner that you see fit. Since you have the source code for the product, you are free to make changes years down the road without having to be dependent on a handful of vendors with an esoteric skill set.

Business Analysis

The key to a successful project delivered on time and within budget starts at the projects inception. Our business analysts utilize Cimmaron's proven analysis methodology to guide you through the discovery process, requirements gathering, and analysis phase to deliver a comprehensive functional requirements document that will serve as the roadmap to success for your project.

Proper business analysis is the bedrock upon which every successful business system is built. Companies that do not apply a rigorous and disciplined process to the understanding of your business will not be able to create software that meets your needs today, much less accommodate your future growth.

We believe that software development and business analysis are two distinct activities, interwoven together to create a successful software system. Cimmaron Software understands that excellence in software development cannot be attained without a thorough understanding of the business processes. On the other hand, it is essential to understand the current technological capabilities to be able to design and deliver a software system that is responsive, secure, and reliable, but equally important is that the project be delivered in a timely fashion.

Cimmaron Software draws on many years of experience and many successful implementations when creating your next generation software project. Our goal is not only to understand your business the way it is today, but also to gain an insight of where it will be tomorrow.

Application Integration

Custom solutions rarely live in a vacuum. A large percentage of our custom applications and database solutions are required to work in parallel with existing applications and database sources. Many of our clients still rely on powerful application solutions such as Great Plains, Mass 90, and ADP to provide accounting and payroll functionality. Our goal is not to replace specialized applications such as these with a custom solution; instead we enable and optimize the data communication process between a solution we create for your businesses unique needs and your existing applications.

Our team of software engineers, database administrators, and partners are well versed in what steps need to be taken to allow your existing applications and databases to coexist with our custom software solutions.

Legacy Data Migration

Your legacy data and applications can at times hold vital information and business efficiency hostage. A poorly designed database can lead to the inability to access the information that is essential to making accurate business decisions. Inadequate applications can crash and bring your employees workday to a staggering halt. Events such as these cost your company money and hand over market share to your competition. Cimmaron's data migration team can help guide your company through this complicated process.

Data Analysis and Reporting Solutions

Turning data into information is key for proper business analysis and decision making. The Data Analysis module of our XAP technology gives Cimmaron the ability to quickly tap into your existing data sources and deliver custom reports on demand that meet your company's decision-making needs. Your staff can now have a powerful Windows based application to dynamically view reports based on their own custom criteria without burdening your already over-utilized IT department with an endless barrage or report requests.
