My first month as Sales Executive at Ibuildings is over. And I’ve already learned a lot!
Our client, a large ICT specialist in the educational sector, is an organisation for whom security is a critical element of all software. In order to be able to guarantee this, she periodically has security audits performed on her software by an external party.
As projects grow in size and complexity, it can be easy to get lost in your own code base. Does this function return X, or Y. Can it return null? Does the doc block still match the function? Is this function even used anymore? We will use static analysis to answer these questions, and identify potential problems in our code. We will dive into what static analysis is, and a few of the tools that are available.
In our online age, the time of serverless computing has also come in recent years. This offers great advantages for working in the cloud. Especially if the software for your organisation is designed and developed for this purpose. For new applications, the development of cloud native software should certainly also be a consideration. I would be happy to explain why.
Six kilos of plastic waste became this sperm whale fatal. We have seen or read dozens, if not hundreds, of such messages. And every time you think, at least I do: now something really has to change! In privacy and in our organization! At Ibuildings we think about that too. How environmentally conscious and sustainable are we really?
A while ago I wrote about Decoupled, Headless and traditional CMS architecture. The post is about choosing which one is right for you. I wrote about the different architecture characteristics and the consequences it has. Knowing the differences will help you pick the right one for you. Based on that post you could think that you have to choose between Decoupled or Headless. But maybe there is more to choose from.
No matter what kind of business software you’re working with, updating to keep up to date is always necessary. Also with custom software. Although you can make choices in your update and upgrade policy. But do this consciously, because the consequences vary greatly. And you notice that in the extent to which business software supports your users and business. And it also strongly determines how securely your organization works. Have you already made a choice?
Many people think the purpose of a business is to make money. The more money the company makes, the better it goes,' is the thought. Many annual plans are made based on 30% more turnover or 10% more profit. Until a few years ago, we also worked in the same way at Ibuildings. With a larger company with more profit, the rest would be fine on its own. But that’s not how it works, I noticed with myself.
