CASE
Screening of software (architecture)
on request of LinqUp
Given the background and the experience of both founders, XQTING has considerable expertise in software (architecture). It is on the basis of this knowledge that LinqUp (a Belgian private investor in software scale-ups and real estate) contacted XQTING with the request to make an objective evaluation of an existing software package. The assignment consisted of two parts. First we studied the existing architecture. Was everything designed and implemented according to the rules of art? Is the code easily transferable? Is the result robust and scalable? What does the graphical user interface look like and can it be improved? In a second part, we were asked to which extent the software is suitable to offer as a service in "the cloud". Are adjustments needed? Which exactly? What are the points of attention and potential pitfalls? Our findings were brought together in an extensive report that was presented and discussed with the client.
