The Automated Software Factory has three main benefits:
- Accelerated development that outpaces competitors.
- The ability to introduce features and technology concurrently.
- Maintenance costs are kept to a bare minimum.
Remaining current with technology advancements is a complex task. Deciding against a framework upgrade due to the potential scale of required rewrites is a common concern. The root of this issue lies in the nature of software development: over time, the original business specifications transform into code, changing and evolving. When it comes time to refactor for a new framework or technology, there’s a divergence between the business content of the two implementations, even when the intention is to maintain consistency.
By adopting declarative modeling, you mitigate these risks and stay competitive. Declarative models ensure that your business content remains consistent, regardless of changes in frameworks, technology, or programming language.
Declarative modeling also allows for the concurrent development of business content and technological improvement. You can prototype and test new technologies and frameworks using the same business functionality. It also enables the simultaneous delivery of new and old versions and the capability to conduct A/B testing by generating various sets of code to determine the most effective or accepted one. This dual-track approach keeps you ahead of your competition.
