An Independent Software Vendor (ISV)always needs to stay ahead of intense competition, starting from product development to licensing and distribution to customer support. ISVs need to limit budgets to survive in this challenging economy. Sometimes with limited resources one must find a way to balance the need for product development with the ongoing Customer demand for engineering support.

The challenges and opportunities that organizations face are multidimensional:

  • Varied potential customer base requiring product availability on multiple platforms
  • High level of defect backlog impacting customer satisfaction
  • Continued new releases of database, application server, browser etc.
  • Adaptation to newer technologies in the market place

Adametric's solutions for ISVs include analysing system requirements, developing requirements, creating the architecture, designing the software, implementing the code, integrating the components, and testing the software to verify that it satisfies the specified requirements.

Product Concept & Design

Sustenance Engineering

Software Companies continually face challenges arising out of demand for new features, contemporary technology, minimising upgrade problems and cost optimization.

Efficient software sustenance requires consistent innovation and faster upgrade releases to address the unfilled customer needs. The sustenance phase often becomes the critical cost factor and sometimes even exceeds the development cost if not thoroughly observed and worked upon. You need a right partner who can bring true business impact by maximizing ROI and long term success of your existing product.

Adametric with its expertise in product sustenance services help our clients to improve performance, functionality and user experience of their existing products. Our team of experts smoothly takes over the product knowledge and designs an excellent sustenance plan that fits your specific product and business objective.

Product Migrating & Porting

The approach of many software product companies to foster development on a common technology platform and using a technology stack locks out other customers, who are using diverse platforms. As the features and functions stabilize, it also becomes vital to enhance compatibility of successful products across different platforms and multiple languages/locales to broaden their marketing reach.

Adametric's software migration and porting services analyses the relevant details about the product, current platform/stack and current language/locale and map those to the target environment. Our Product migration services follow a structured and defined process to render a transition to the new environment, minimizing risks to the business and making the product more global.

Value Engineering

Increased global competition continues to affect profitability of companies and there is a continual need to sustain profitability and competitiveness by introducing new products, capabilities and features at lower costs. Value Engineering helps achieve optimum value by balancing the performance and cost of a product.

Value = Function/Cost

Adametric Value Engineering (AVE), a systematic and structured approach, improves projects, products, and processes. AVE is used to analyze products and processes, design and development projects. Value Engineering helps achieve balance between required functions, performance, quality, safety, and scope with the cost and other resources necessary to accomplish those requirements. The proper balance results in the maximum value for the product.

Adametric offers value engineering services help realize maximize product value by enhancing product functionality, capabilities and quality while optimizing cost. Our value consultants use value engineering techniques to ensure better performance, aesthetic representation, and cost reduction of existing products. Our capabilities include:

  • Product Localization
  • SaaS Enablement
  • Architecture Enhancement
  • SoA Enablement

At Adametric, we provide customized localization solutions for a wide range of software platforms. A software application consists not only of the user interface, but also of other components such as online help systems and printed or electronic documentation, and these need to be translated consistently with the actual software product.

SaaS enablement models offer software organizations significant benefits in terms of reducing software delivery costs, improving customer satisfaction and ease of upgrades. However, there are challenges to overcome mainly from the architecture, licensing and security viewpoint.

Adametric has been one of pioneers in SaaS application development and leveraging SaaS platforms, with a deep understanding of the security, multi-tenancy, and manageability issues that differentiate SaaS software from on-premise software.

  • SOA enablement services

For over a decade Adametric has been developing its best of breed enterprise applications on n-Tier SOA platform. By creating a service-oriented architecture, you are equipped to incorporate real-time business capabilities into your operations.

Benefits

Increase revenue and profit potential

World-ready software is accessible to more users around the world and as a result, a world-ready application can be sold in more places thus potentially increasing your revenue and profits.

Reduce international development costs

Incorporating international users' needs into your original designs reduces need for fixing design issues to enable globalization or localization or create multiple localized source codes for your product.

Get more miles out of your code

Adametric provides a localized single code base which is much easier and less error-prone to update. As a result, code quality improves. This allows for greater code reuse and can serve as the foundation for the next version of the product.

Cheaper and easier to localize

With our world-ready product localization, all the files you need to hand off to your team or vendor are separated from the code meaning less opportunity to introduce functionality errors in the code.

Easier to customize to meet customer preferences

We turn your product to a new level of user experience and excitement through market customization. This makes your product t appears to the customer as if it was designed for their specific market.

Lower support costs

A product based on a single code base can simplify software distribution and deployment, plus it can lead to shipping a single service pack that can be installed on any language version of the application.

Increase customer satisfaction

Early planning during the design phases of your globalization and localization reduces localization-related delays and help you reach international customers sooner.

Move ahead of the competition

Your Company and product becomes more agile in seizing emerging opportunities. Furthermore, by using the savings realized from efficient development and reduced localization and testing costs, you can gain even greater advantage over your competition by expanding footprint of your product.

Immediate access to the latest innovations

With traditional licensed software, you typically have to wait for the next release to add features from the latest innovations or technologies. With a SaaS enablement you benefit from innovations on an on-going basis. As soon as a new or improved feature appears in the application, you can begin incorporating it.
