IT Analysis - Application Understanding
A code grows with time. And your business is dependant on your applications.
Application Understanding (AU) is a tool (and also the name of our process) that can be used to extract the business logic and other relevant information from the source code.
This procedure helps you to identify how your systems function.
You need to know the business logic of your application.
Whatever you are planning to do with the source code - development according to brownfield, rewrite the code or development in a different procedure - you have to know the business logic of your application
For this reason, we work according to our concept: "The source code is the truth".
The Application Understanding method scans your application and extracts the business logic without considering other non-relevant parts, such as logging or management parts.
This procedure helps you to identify the functions of your systems.
The Application Understanding procedure can be used independently of the Business Flow Suite, our modernisation tool. This procedure helps you to identify the functions of your systems. In general, the Application Understanding procedure should be carried out for analysis before any modernisation project. Before using the Business Flow Suite, it is essential to carry out the procedure.
All code fragments leading to this data point are collected.
Code analysis is classically a top-down process. The risk here is that the complexity grows in this direction.
Our Application Understanding method has the opposite approach: it detects the output endpoints in the code. From here, it goes back and collects all the code fragments that lead to that data point.
The Application Understanding method can be used for different languages.
This enables you to set your company's course for the future at an early stage.
Source code analysis is the central building block of any application analysis and serves as an indispensable tool for a successful audit of your business. With the source code analysis tool, you can closely examine active business processes and then optimise them according to your wishes.
This corporate audit acts as a precaution for your existing processes and structures. This enables you to set your company's course for the future at an early stage.
