Have you ever noticed how much easier some software packages are to use or conversely, how difficult and confusing others can be? Maybe you’ve been frustrated that you can’t seem to get that one piece of information that you really need to make that big decision? Does your business software improve the operating performance of your company or is it holding you back? The answers to these questions are often heavily influenced by software design. All custom business software is not created equal. Just like a fine house designed by a top architect or a high end sports car designed by top automotive engineers, software performance is directly impacted by the quality of the original software design. As is the case with most things in life, built in quality and performance will usually outperform later attempts to repair defects or short comings.
Then why do people design ineffective or unresponsive custom software? Surely it is not intentional. In many cases the problem can be traced to two basic requirements of software design: experience and communications. The two go hand in hand. It doesn’t matter how experienced or how smart you are if you can’t understand what the customer is asking for or you can’t convey your concepts to them. It also doesn’t matter that you are a fluent communicator when you simply don’t know how to build a custom software solution. We are all familiar with sales personnel who eloquently describe a solution that turns out to be unavailable, and many of us have our frustrations with off-shore tech support personnel who probably have superior knowledge of their product but seem incapable of communicating it to us when we need it most. We believe that sound software design is based upon an accurate understanding of the business requirements and concise documentation of the business rules involved, requiring both experience and strong communication skills.
