Recently, we talked to some of our customers, and they told us that they couldn’t imagine having worked without PlatformManager before. They explained the pain points they were suffering which they no longer need to worry about, such as:
In an environment where more than a handful of apps are in production, none of your testers know what code your developers have touched. At the same time, business users breathe down the necks of the IT team to get what they need on their desktops today. So how can you test faster and still deliver high-quality apps? Testing is a critical part of app development, but because it’s the last big step before the user gets the app, it tends to be more of a sticking point than other areas. As far as the business user understands, the app is totally ready, but it’s stuck in a holding pattern which stops them from using it. To help with this type of frustration, you need to make testing quicker. Here’s how. Testing, Testing The problem with testing is that it gets repetitive. Testers will often have to keep testing the same apps for as long as they’re in use, which for many businesses is going to be years. Looking at the same code over and over again tends to dull the senses to change. Becoming more familiar with particular programs makes testers more comfortable –because they think they know itRead more
It’s terrifying when your best developer decides they want to move on. You rely on them so much that you don’t even think about what they’re responsible for half the time – they just get it done. But, that leaves you with a big hole to fill, both in terms of knowledge and time. Wouldn’t it be great if you could make your whole development team as good as your star player? It’s a horrible feeling when your best developer slides their notice across the desk, or even worse in the modern age, when you receive a resignation email. The anxiety of how your team will handle ongoing work and larger projects builds pretty quickly the moment you know you’re losing a great resource. Unfortunately, when they do go, it’s also likely to shine a light on things that aren’t quite up to scratch. A Big Hit Let’s say you’ve got a team of 12 and within that group, you’ve got a long-standing developer who knows everything. That could include what extensions you use, where the database files are, QBD processes, how to put something into production – you know the person we’re talking about. Your star player. The personRead more
It’s been a seriously busy year, right? We’re still not sure where the time had gone, so we had a quick look back at the past twelve months and realized we’d accomplished rather a lot. Today, hopefully, to encourage you to review 2022 in your own life, we’re running through all the highlights, as well as the view ahead for PlatformManager in 2023. It’s very cliche, but it really does feel like the start of 2022 was yesterday, when in reality, it’s been a very busy year at PlatformManager. We’ve accomplished so much in the past twelve months. We’re guessing because it was so busy it turned the whole year into a blur, so it’s nice to sit down and put all our achievements on paper. “2023 will see us continue our efforts in developing our global partner community and investing in our customers and the Cloud solutions they need!” Jeroen Gerritsen, Managing Director, PlatformManager Month To Month We kicked off the year 2022 with a visit in January to our partner Evaco in Duisburg for a sales kick-off event. For the second time in a row, our Global Partner Award 2022 has been won by EVACO due toRead more
