Why SOLID principles are necessary for any Enterprise Software?

Why SOLID principles are necessary for any Enterprise Software?

SOLID Principles is a an acronym used as a coding standard. Robert Martin introduced it first. It is used across the object-oriented design family. All developers should have a clarity for developing software in the right way to avoid a bad design. When applied appropriately it makes your code easier to read, more extendable and logical. A software with a bad design has inflexible code. Small changes if introduced to such software may break existing code or cause bugs. Design principles and patters prove a lot of significance in any software’s scalability, maintainability. It may take time to understand SOLID principles but they improve code quality and provide component reusability making future integrations easier. Extending functionality in your existing app without rewriting code at all tiers will be possible through these principles.

Why many software applications fail due to bad code?

All softwares which are not built with future vision of type of change requests or system scalability will die. Following are design flaws that cause dent in software in the long run:

  1. Put more stress on Classes by assigning more responsibilities to them. (A lot of functionality not related to a class put together.)
  2. Forcing the classes to depend on each other. If classes are dependent on each other (in other words tightly coupled), then a change in one will surely affect the other.
  3. Spreading duplicate and redundant code in the system/application.
  4. Hardcoding url, constants, keys etc. as well as habit of declaring static code everywhere.

The right way to avoid all the above is SOLID way. Lets see what it actually means:

        S: Single Responsibility Principle (SRP)
        O: Open closed Principle (OSP)
        L: Liskov substitution Principle (LSP)
        I: Interface Segregation Principle (ISP)
        D: Dependency Inversion Principle (DIP)

Single Responsibility Principle (SRP)

This SOLID Principle means “A Class should only have a single responsibility“. All its method should relate to function. Class should only have one reason to change; the more entities in the class, the more difficult it becomes to achieve this. Only change in 1 part of software should be all required to affect the class functionality. So we need to build a structure of software in such a way that classes should cover only one responsibility or functionality.

To understand this let’s consider, We implement the methods for a Company. Now we also want logging, error handling, emailing etc, kind of activities then we must implement all of these into different classes.
For an instance below I have not followed this rule:

public class Company

{

     public void AddCompany()

     {

         //Implementation

         MailMessage mailMessage = new MailMessage(“EMailFrom”“EMailTo”“EMailSubject”“EMailBody”);

         this.SendEmail(mailMessage);

     }

     public void DeleteCompany()

     {

         //Implementation

     }

     public void SendEmail(MailMessage mailMessage)

     {

         //Implementation

     }

}

Now if I want to make my code with Single Responsibility Principle I will create a separate class for employee and Email like below:

public class Company

{

public void AddCompany()

{

     //Implementation

     MailMessage mailMessage = new MailMessage(“EMailFrom”“EMailTo”“EMailSubject”“EMailBody”);

     Emailing emailing = new Emailing();

     emailing.SendEmail(mailMessage);

}

public void DeleteCompany()

{

     //Implementation

}

}

public class Emailing

{

public void SendEmail(MailMessage mailMessage)

{

     //Implementation

}

}

 If we write the database logic, business logic as well as the display logic in a single class, then our class performs multiple responsibilities. So it gets very difficult to change one responsibility without breaking other functionalities. Also we may face difficulties with testing and duplication of logic. What if I want to send an email for an Employee in future requirements ? That’s why we recommend to have separate code for each purpose.

Open closed Principle (OSP)

Open closed Principle is defined as “Software entities such as modules, classes, functions, etc. should be open for extension, but closed for modification“. The first thing is “Open for extension” which means new functions, classes, modules can inherit existing code when new requirements are generated and “Closed for modification” which means we are allowing its behavior to be extended without modifying existing source code. In a simple way we can say that we should not change already working functionality, it may affect the entire feature of that module.

Easiest way to implement the Open-Closed Principle

  •         Use derived classes that inherit from base class
  •         Allow access to use original classes with interface
  •         Create new method for new feature so better to us derived class instead of base class

Not following this principle brings problem with existing module and its class maintenance becomes difficult. In addition with every change in existing code we have to test our entire code every time. This also breaks our first principle Single Responsibility Principle.

Example

public class Event

{

public int GetDiscount(int input, DiscountType discountType)

{

     int amount = 0;

     if (discountType == DiscountType.TypeOne)

     {

         amount = input – 20;

     }

     if (discountType == DiscountType.TypeTwo)

     {

         amount = input – 40;

     }

     return amount;

}

}

Here we are checking discount types implementing a business Logic with if else conditions so if in future we have another discount for new events then we need to change the logic for this method.

public class Event

{

public virtual int GetDiscount(int amount)

{

     int regularDiscount = 10;

     return amount – regularDiscount;

}

}

public class DiscountOne : Event

{

public override int GetDiscount(int input)

{

     return base.GetDiscount(input) – 20;

}

}

public class DiscountTwo : Event

{

public override int GetDiscount(int input)

{

     return base.GetDiscount(input) – 40;

}

}

Using this Open-Closed Principle we can inherit from base class and use custom logic for. Here if we are adding more into existing code, we dont need to worry about other functionalities and let it remain as it is.

Liskov substitution Principle (LSP)

This principle tells “Objects in a program should be replaceable with instances of their subtypes without altering the correctness of that program“. It also defines some guidelines for maintaining inheritor substitution. Passing an object’s inheritor in place of the base class shouldn’t break any existing functionality in the called method. You should be able to substitute all implementations of a given interface with each other.

public class Program

{

static void Main(string[] args)

{

     A objA = new B();

     Console.WriteLine(objA.GetValue());

}

}

public class A

{

public virtual int GetValue()

{

     return 10;

}

}

public class B : A

{

public override int GetValue()

{

     return 20;

}

}

In this example we have used inherited class A and override method GetValue() so at this point class B cannot be replaced by class A and it returns value from class B. In this case we need to have a generic base class so we can use sub class and it will behave correctly.

public class Program

{

static void Main(string[] args)

{

     C objA = new A();

     C objB = new B();

     Console.WriteLine(objA.GetValue());

     Console.WriteLine(objB.GetValue());

}

}

public abstract class C

{

public abstract int GetValue();

}

public class A :C

{

public override int GetValue()

{

     return 10;

}

}

public class B : C

{

public override int GetValue()

{

     return 20;

}

}

Interface Segregation Principle (ISP)

This Principle in SOLID emphasizes as “Clients should not be forced to implement any methods they don’t use”. Rather than one fat interface, numerous little interfaces are preferred based on groups of methods with each interface serving one sub module. Do not create methods which will not be used or implemented.

If we need to implement the functionality and have a common method implementation from the interface or abstract class but we don’t use all the methods from that then create a separate interface and implement individually. 

public interface AppService

{

void Insert();

void Update();

void Delete();

}

public class Employee : AppService

{

public void Insert()

{

     Console.WriteLine(“Created”);

}

public void Update()

{

     Console.WriteLine(“Updated”);

}

public void Delete()

{

     Console.WriteLine(“Deleted”);

}

}

public class Company : AppService

{

public void Insert()

{

     Console.WriteLine(“Created”);

}

public void Update()

{

     Console.WriteLine(“Updated”);

}

public void Delete()

{

     throw new NotImplementedException();

}

}

Here we have implementation of AppService interface into employee and company where we don’t want to implement Delete method for Company then we can use another interface service that only provides Delete method to implement like this,

public interface AppService

{

void Insert();

void Update();

}

public interface DeleteService

{

void Delete();

}

public class Employee : AppService, DeleteService

{

public void Insert()

{

     Console.WriteLine(“Created”);

}

public void Update()

{

     Console.WriteLine(“Updated”);

}

public void Delete()

{

     Console.WriteLine(“Deleted”);

}

}

public class Company : AppService

{

public void Insert()

{

     Console.WriteLine(“Created”);

}

public void Update()

{

     Console.WriteLine(“Updated”);

}

}

 So as per SOLID we can only implement required services and no need to write invalid code. We have split that big interface into three small interfaces. Each interface now has some specific purpose.

Dependency Inversion Principle (DIP)

The Dependency Inversion Principle says that “Program to an interface, not to an implementation“. It means high-level modules/classes should not depend on low-level modules/classes. Both should depend upon abstractions. Secondly, abstractions should not depend upon details. Dependency Inversion means to depend on abstractions instead of concrete types.

If one class knows implementation of another class then it will raise the risk of changing one will affect another. So it should both depend on abstraction. As a result we must keep these high-level and low-level modules/classes loosely coupled as much as possible.

public class EmployeeController

{

BusinessLogic service;

public EmployeeController(BusinessLogic _service)

{

     service = _service;

}

public List<Employee> GetAllEmployee()

{

     return service.GetEmployees();

}

}

public class BusinessLogic

{

public List<Employee> GetEmployees()

{

     //Implementation

}

}

Here we are using BusinessLogic class which gives access to data layer. It also gives implementation of actual logic of employee where EmployeeController is higher level class and BusinessLogic is lower level class. Therefore, class/module should not depend on the concrete EmployeeDataAccess class/module, instead, both the classes should depend on abstraction or interface. For instance as below:

public class EmployeeController

{

     IBusinessLogic service;

     public EmployeeController(IBusinessLogic _service)

     {

         service = _service;

     }

     public List<Employee> GetAllEmployee()

     {

         return service.GetEmployees();

     }

}

public interface IBusinessLogic

{

     List<Employee> GetEmployees();

}

public class BusinessLogic: IBusinessLogic

{

     public List<Employee> GetEmployees()

     {

         //Implementation

     }

}

Now both EmployeeController and BusinessLogic classes are loosely coupled so it doesn’t depend on concrete BusinessLogic class.

Conclusion

Indeed, the SOLID principles are generally overlapping in their effects upon sustainable computer code. As the process of writing software has always evolved from the theoretical realm into a true engineering discipline.

Customers love Business hosted on SAAS

Customers love Business on SAAS

Software as a Service often called SAAS, is a delivery model in which software is licensed on subscription basis. This Software is centrally hosted with a public url be it multi-tenant or single-tenant based. It can also be called an “On-demand software”. SAAS comes under the umbrella of Cloud computing along with IAAS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PAAS(Platform as a Service). End-users can access SAAS apps through a web browser.

Business Applications in the last 3 decades hosted as SAAS :

  • Office Software like Office 365
  • Messaging Software like Slack
  • Payroll & Invoice processing software like Quickbooks
  • Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) like Oracle Netsuite
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM) like Salesforce & Zoho
  • Human Resource Management (HRM) like SAGE
  • Service Desk Software like JIRA
  • Learning Management System (LMS) like Adobe captivate prime
  • Content Management System (CMS) like Sharepoint
  • Accounting Software like XERO & Quickbooks

And many more totalling SAAS sales of 100 Billion US$ up till 2019.

Distribution & Pricing

This cloud model has no need for physical distribution or installation as it is centrally deployed. Now you can avoid traditional agents and middleman, thanks to SAAS. SAAS has complimented a lot to all types of Application development. SAAS doesn’t charge an upfront setup cost like traditional softwares. They charge a subscription fee be it monthly, annually on user-basis. The data stays on the SAAS owners server so some of the apps charge on transaction basis. Many SAAS software offer a freemium model where in you can use a limited set of features unlike the package with a subscription charge. Many apps don’t charge any subscription charge but rather monetize using advertisements.

Why is SAAS loved by Customers?

  • Pay for Use Only. Many Softwares calculate the units used by the user or the users in his company. For eg: Microsoft Azure calculate units for the apps you use like SQL, Azure App service etc. It only charges you for the time and units you use. If your virtual server is unused for 6 months, it is like you own a server but you dont pay the rent as you dont use it. Isnt  that amazing to save a lot of money without stopping your company operations. Businesses with traditional applications have to spend a lot for upgrades. Also with SAAS your expenses become variable rather than the traditional fixed.
  • Cheaper. Many Customers lack the courage to pay 20k-50k USD for app development, as along with money they also need to make sure their employees are making full use of it. So signing up on a SAAS platform just for less than 100 USD per month gives them the luxury to use a Cloud product which solves their business problems and then in future if they want they can go for custom software development according to their business particulars. Now as the customer knows what do their employees want for daily operation, it becomes productive as well as affordable. Sometimes customers are so happy with SAAS platform that they dont feel the need of a custom software at all.
  • Avoid App Development Costs. Customers now don’t need to spend money in hiring developers to make an app for their business if all the features already exist in any SAAS application. No extra Infrastructure, Lower IT spending and maintenance costs makes business owners happy as they can use that budget in other operations.

Why Updates in SAAS platform don’t stop your work anymore?

  • Easier Updates. Updates are decided by SAAS providers and not customers at regular intervals of time.  It has single version unlike traditional app where each client has different app version. Its easier to update single version for all clients rather than to go at each client’s office and do manual upgrade.
  • Flexibility. SAAS enables the app-makers to accept all types of feature requests from customer. Without asking the customer to reboot, or upgrade hardware, they can release new version with all new features and past bug fixes. CHANGE IS THE NEW CONSTANT. 
  • Upgrade/Degrade. With SAAS you can upgrade your package for more features or degrade to a lower package for less features easily. It is hassle-free and doesn’t affect your existing data. You can always come back and change your package. No additional hardware needed.
  • Scalability. This Cloud model allows users to add more users to company subscription, as well as to remove the users. It has tendency of handling millions of userbase  Its loosely coupled architecture makes it easier for app manufacturers to deploy on separate server in different region just like Copies. The flexible model helps to easily scale any system even if there are millions of users sending message or raising order at a single time. Unlike traditional application, you don’t need to add new hardware or extra server or RAM when the user-base expands.

Other Special Qualities in SAAS

  • Ease of Use & Performance. Now you dont have to wait till the technical guys finishes the installation of exe file. You can now start using the app in seconds after registration. The performance is faster
  • Faster Testing and Bug fixes. All the SAAS owners host all the customer data centrally along with logs so it becomes very easy to find out the bugs and solved them soon. SAAS provider is 1 step ahead and knows the user behavior via Google analytics or Hotjar which helps him/her to improve app faster without the customer complaining.
  • Security. With SAAS, customers can take a sigh of relief as the service providers take up responsibility for security along with availability and performance
  • 24*7 Availability. Customer can register or use the app at anytime of day and in any part of world. It frees customer’s employees to work from anywhere along with office, which gives better productivity and employee satisfaction too.
  • Live chat support. Customers love to solve their queries, doubts or issues at real-time. Almost all SAAS have live chat some with 24*7 availability of agents who can answer back in less than 5 mins or you also have the option to raise a ticket offline.

Recently we build Software as a Service platforms using Asp.net zero framework
We used Asp.net core 3.1 & Angular 8/9 with SQL & Entity framework code-first in Asp.net zero.
Following are some of these SAAS projects built by us:

COIPRO
Oneserv
Simpletix

And many more in Fintech, Insurance, Field tracking, Education, Event Booking, Human resource, ERP etc.

Businesses use ASP.NET Core for Web Application development

Why Businesses use ASP.NET Core for Web Application development

Businesses are using open-source technologies like Java, PHP, Python or closed-source technology for web application development. But not all of them know that Microsoft offers an open-source and cross-platform framework in the form of Asp.net core. Asp.net core has more advantages than normal Asp.net MVC.

Businesses use Asp.net Core for web application development

What is ASP.NET Core?

ASP.NET Core is a free and open-source web framework and successor to ASP.NET, developed by Microsoft and the community. It is a modular framework that runs on both the full .NET Framework, on Windows, and the cross-platform .NET Core and, it best suits businesses that look for a wide range of features like web-based services, desktop software, and cloud infrastructure support.

Why are enterprises eager to migrate to ASP.NET Core?

Businesses use Asp.net core for the following 10 reasons:

  • Performance. When you compile your code, Dotnet core automatically optimizes it in order to increase the performance. For instance, .Net core takes  57,843 requests per second vs .NET MVC which takes 313,001 requests per second (i.e. almost 5x). Asp.net Core is faster than Nodejs too, see the case-study here.  Also it’s request time is 7 times faster than Laravel and 3 times faster than Django, see the case-study here. All these data justify how good Asp.net core is for web application development.
  • Easy to Update new version thanks to Nuget package which manages this well,  not like before where a new framework version had to be deployed.
  • Command line support which enables the developer to code in any of Linux, Mac & Windows to execute and host several apps.
  • Cheaper maintenance due to less code philosophy everytime a new version is out, the developer can enhance their code in few lines for same feature.
  • Cross-platform support makes deployment and hosting to any platform like MAC or Linux so easy. Also apps are now loosely coupled with backend developed in C# , whereas frontend app can be developed in any framework like React, Vuejs or Angular.
  • Cloud-based support makes  convenient for developers to make one for all backend and deploy on Azure, AWS or Google cloud for mobile app, web-app, IOT devices.
  • MVC architecture & Dependency Injection  support
  • Hosting support for web servers like IIS, Apache, Docker.
  • Support for all frontend frameworks like Angular, React & Vuejs along with jQuery and Javascript
  • Supports ASP.NET Boilerplate which is a strong architectural model based on DDD(Domain Driven Design).
  • Better support for Unit testing.

Currently Asp.net Core 3.1 is the latest version, see how much ahead it is in comparison to its peers here.

What is new in ASP.NET Core 3.1?

  • Razor components are now generated as partial classes and can be written in code-behind class files.
  • Blazor (new framework launched in 3.0 version) Component Tag Helper and pass parameters to top-level components
  • Ability to create or attach to an existing named HTTP.sys request queue.
  • Breaking changes for SameSite cookies.
  • Prevent default actions for events in Blazor apps.
  • Stop event propagation in Blazor apps.
  • Developers get errors with detail viewability during Blazor app development.
  • Performance improvements wrt memory allocation, usage and json serializer
  • For more information about updates in last version (Asp.net core 3.0), check here.

Other Improvements in ASP.NET Core 3.1

  • C# 8 add async streams.
  • F# 4.7 focuses on making something easier.
  • ASP.NET Core and Xamarin support.
  • Windows Desktop apps are now supported with .NET Core.
  • Raspberry Pi and ARM chips are now supported.
  • .NET Core apps now have executables by default.
  • High performance JSON APIs have been added.
  • The garbage collector uses less memory.

Platforms supporting .NET core 3.1

  •   Alpine: 3.10+
  •   Debian: 9+
  •   Ubuntu: 16.04+
  •   Fedora: 29+
  •   centOS: 7+
  •   RHEL: 6+
  •   openSUSE: 15+
  •   SUSE Enterprise Linux (SLES): 12 SP2+
  •   macOS: 10.13+
  •   Windows Client: 7, 8.1, 10 (1607+)
  •   Windows Server: 2012 R2+

Other Use-Cases for ASP.NET Core

  • Cross-platform needs. In case you need the app that will work across platforms, .NET core will be a great choice to cover most platforms thereby reducing development effort while expanding your desktop or mobile app to other operating systems. Also engineering cases like Gaming (including Xbox) and AR development (including HoloLens) can also use ASP.NET Core.
  • PHP is a preferable web application framework used by many developers, But Asp.net is better when we consider enterprise software applications and medium applications. With its tightly coupled architectural design, PHP is better equipped to serve small-sized organizations.

What technology stack should we work with, is a question all businesses sometimes struggle with while planning software development. Often, clients bracket projects into different segments like small, medium or enterprise size, depending on various factors like budget, timeframe, bandwidth and complexity of the project. Selecting a web framework is a challenging task due to a huge number of aspects to take into consideration.

End of the day, you have to decide what framework works best and  cost-effective for you in the long run.

Field Tracking Software for Astar, Inc. | Ncoresoft

ASTAR, Inc.

Custom SAAS product in Field Tracking and Resource Management
for a US leader in Pipeline OQ Evaluations.

AstarInc FieldTracking SAAS Ncoresoft

About ASTAR, Inc.

ASTAR, Inc. is the nation’s leader in providing pipeline Operator Qualification (OQ) evaluations and training services starting in 2007. They specialize in Veriforce, ITS, NCCER, MEA, OQSG, Energy WorldNet, eWebOQ and ISNetworld. ASTAR has a new vision in OQ management. They actively work in the field with both pipeline Operators and Contractors, so we understand the complications that exist while trying to meet OQ requirement. ASTAR is the only companies to earn a Four-Star Elite Evaluator status with Veriforce.

The Challenge.

ASTAR’s 300 field trainers & employees relied on Service Fusion software for their routine operations. The complexity of Service Fusion made Astar employees take more time to operate it and even after that couldnt get realtime data about trainer allocation onsite. Customers used to fill in form on ASTAR website, which went down in form of mail. This mail was then forward to data entry operators, who entered this data 1 by 1 in Service fusion. The calendar of admin was so cluttered that he couldnt understand where John was actually allocated amidst 100 employees. The project manager didn’t had any clarity of whether the Trainer was available or not or whether he/she is idle. Such operational inefficiencies wasted time & money.

Due to this ASTAR recognised the need for a bespoke software solution in form of a SAAS product. This would completely digitize their current manual process to record onsite jobs listing and trainer’s job allocation. The plan was to increase productivity of employees using technology. They wanted a Cloud solution which could be accessed from anywhere in the world. This solution also needs to be responsive to tablet &  small-size desktops.

They were looking for an expert solution provider in Asp.net zero who can convert their idea to reality with authorized access to Management Roles, Access, Jobs, Allocation Calendar etc. We were already an official partner with Asp.net zero for last 3 years. We had experience of delivering multiple apps in Aspnetzero which we demoed and got selected. This app also had to be cost-effective service as client wanted value to migrate from their legacy software. They also wanted that they could sell this software on subscription basis to other clients. This software could be saving them a lot of revenue as well as create new revenue.

Objectives.

  • Job Scheduling
  • Clutter free calendar
  • Connect data coming from website
  • QuickBooks Desktop Integration
  • Real time availability check of Trainers
  • Better navigation and accountability
  • Portal Access to customers
  • Multitenancy to allow selling software on subscription basis.

Our Approach.

We went through their entire scope of work and started with due diligence process. We did this to cover the loopholes found during the course of action. Our Analysts asked the right question which even ASTAR folks didn’t thought while using Service fusion for last 3 years. Once they answered our questions we were good to start our Agile lifecycle and dividing the requirements to sprints. The customer wanted this software in less than 6 months as they wanted to migrate from Service Fusion asap. Therefore we had to put in 3 developers to suffice the requirement. First we started with user roles, security, tenancy and database schema. Based on that we decided how differently it should look to host admin, tenant admin, tenant user , customer admin etc.

We wanted to deliver a user friendly design for Jobs, Calendar as well as QuickBooks Integration with Invoice screen. Our team made sure each screen had consistent stylesheets whether it input controls, modal designs or advance filter in accordion. In addition, We researched well for the color codes to help customer act accordingly.

Delivery

Random color generation was done to award each new user & job status with a new color. This helped user to recognize trainer allocation separately in calendar. Our software supported Data export to excel and pdf to make data available across different systems. Security was a major concern for which we had Audit logs & Reporting to our support. As a result, the admin could see who changed record and when.

Users could add time to show their task allocation and utilization each day. A company can work better if it knows what is the utilization rate of each of its employees. Drag n drop functionality helped users to directly put unassigned jobs on specific dates. These calendar events allowed dragging to change dates. Also there were provisions to add customers, users, assignee, services on the fly without redirecting. We had integrated sendgrid through SMTP to send mails. In conclusion, we had covered every feature which a multitenant SAAS system should have.

Solutions Provided.

  • Database Design with SQL 2018
  • User Interface Design with Angular8, Metronic Theme & PrimeNG Customization
  • API Development with Asp.net core 2.3 & Integration
  • Client Portal & Dashboard
  • Quickbooks Desktop Integration
  • Quickbooks Online Integration

7 Reasons Why your Business needs custom software development

7 Reasons Why your Business needs custom software development

All businesses need Custom Software as they need productivity and profit to go parallel. Custom Softwares are built with a targeted objective in mind to scale company and increase revenue. The timely completion of tasks in the correct way and order daily makes the actual difference in business. All Founders and co-founders always strive to tighten the nut bolts of operations and other departments. The main focus is efficiency in each department so all business units need refining. No one software solution can provide you answer to all problems your business is facing. All they provide is generic and common solutions which may and may not work for your business.

In this query, many times business owners need to buy multiple software or subscriptions which becomes tedious. You need multiple stakeholders to manage multiple apps which decreases productivity too. The time you dedicated for meeting new clients or other important tasks got used in managing multiple applications. Also each app stores data in different servers as per each software creator. This can be unmanageable many times due to synchronization and compatibility issues. A custom software can do wonders to your business. It will become the one stop solution and solve all your company’s issues on the daily run.

We build Mockups before starting custom software development
Following is our list of 7 reasons reading which you may understand the importance of custom built software:

  1. Why use multiple softwares to perform one task?

    – When you start your day, you use Quickbooks for accounting/invoices. You may have Sage for sales/purchases, some other for shipping and tracking. All these affects your learning curve, software expenses, productivity and manageability index daily. This can be solved if you ditch them and go for custom software development. A tailored software solution which performs your team’s daily routine tasks is need of the hour.

  2.  Easy to Expand and Scale

    – When your team grows you dont want to increase your overhead. You want your entire workforce to be on the same page. How will that happen if all are diverted to seperate solutions to reach to common goals. Even training new employees on different softwares can be a big headache. This can be prevented if we have single solution for entire team with separate authentication and authorization. An accountant doesn’t need to see the marketing module and a purchase manager doesn’t need to see sales module. A company can easily grow as they have the highest productivity with single tailored solution. Learning curve and training costs go down to zero as colleagues can teach each other when needed. You can scale your business easily with this unlike offshelf solutions. Those can be used by startups when they don’t have routine operations but wont work when your company is 100+. So why not to invest it onetime and save money rather than to pay for licenses for 10 years and then migrate to a custom software.

  3. Why to pay monthly user-wise licenses and subscriptions

    – It is a one time cost you pay for a custom software. After that it is just minimal annual hosting and maintenance charges. Hosting and maintenance charges depends on client’s choice if he needs them or can host on private server. Imagine you buy 100 SAP licenses for your team. After that you call their team for training your employees. Imagine the cost and compare it with some single solution provider who can deploy your software to cloud. Now your team can access it from anywhere in the world giving you maximum productivity. Also no need for manual upgrades as your Cloud solution will automatically load the latest build.

  4.  Customize Logic Anytime.

    – When you have ordered for a custom built solution, you can send change request even after the product is launched and delivered. You can make any business logic change which you think is right for your business.

  5. Lower separate hardware costs.

    – When you are using third party softwares, you might have to pay extra for the hardware and the licenses of software to access them. But once you go for a custom solution, you make sure that all the features and functionalities related to hardward involvement are covered so that the extra cost is stopped for future.

  6.  Migrate from Paper work to Cloud.

    – Is there any paper still moving in your company from desks to desks? Are you still signing the legal and terms paper via paper ? Are you still using desktop app or spreadsheets where you print out and then send the papers for CEO’s sign ? Gone are the days when you had to manually manage all these chores which occupy 3-4 hours of your day. There are high chances that paper work and spreadsheets have human errors and you cant update them back. We made a mobile and tablet responsive enterprise system for Star-lo Electric. Before this they used to put in all the tasks done by labourers, field managers in paper. This included all of timesheets, tasks, projects, material inventory and reports. Imagine how we saved them a lot of hours each day by migrating them to our wonderful cloud system which can be accessed from anywhere and on any device. It took just 5 months for us to develop it.

  7.  Manage all your customer queries in one system

    – You make amends for healthy customer relations, but still you face complaints, escalations, poor surveys etc. You can make all of them in one place by going for a custom customer software. The software will make sure that it has all the social networks like twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc. where the customer has posted about your product or your company in terms of hashtags. You can also see which team and managers are working on each customer project and what is the current status of delivery. You can also have realtime customer chat or mail integrationWe always suggest our clients to first automate the efficient processes in their current business daily routine. Only after this is successful, go for automation of inefficient and problematic chores in business.If you like our article, please stay tuned for more.

Boeing’s 737 Max Software Outsourcing to $9-an-Hour Engineers

Boeing’s 737 Max Software Outsourcing to $9-an-Hour Engineers

Software outsourcing to inexperienced or underpaid engineers can cause a monetary as well as human loss. It is yet surprising about how Boeing 737 Max Crisis took place. A big Chicago based planemaker like Boeing is famous for its narrow body design. It is still unknown how such famous Jet company can make basic software mistakes. It lead to 2 deadly crashes killing 346 people in Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines.

Senior engineers who are with Boeing for many years consider Software outsourcing maintenance to lower paid contractors as reason. The Max Software was developed at a time when Boeing laid off experienced developers and pushed suppliers to cut costs. Owing to this Boeing and subcontractors have relied more on temporary contractor developers at $9 an hour. The developers were expected to develop and test the software.

Boeing 737 Max Crisis Software Outsourcing to HCL

Software Outsourcing to College Graduates:

“In Boeing’s Seattle office, recent college graduates hired by Indian Software Company HCL Technologies Ltd. occupied many desk rows” – said Mark Rabin, an ex-Boeing employee who worked in flight test group supporting Max software. “All the HCL coders were designing as per Boeing specifications, but still it was a big risk and inefficient as compared to other experienced Boeing developers. It took long hours to go back and forth to rework on the code owing to the code not written properly”.

Boeing won many Indian orders with Indian military and commercial aircraft like SpiceJet Ltd. The reason being its collaboration with Indian Software companies. Till Jan 2017, Airbus ruled Indian skies and then Boeing changed the Indian aerospace scene.

Boeing Max’s Flight-Display Software outsourcing happened to HCL to develop and test it. Developers from another Indian company, Cyient Ltd., were outsourced software development for flight-test equipment.

Software Outsourcing for Costly Delay:

In Jan 2016, a HCL employee who was working on Max software wrote the following to summarize his work:
“Provided quick workaround to resolve production issue which resulted in not delaying flight test of 737-Max (delay in each flight test will cost very big amount for Boeing).” Though Boeing has said that it did not rely on engineers from HCL and Cyient for the MCAS(Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System), which has been linked to the Lion Air crash last October and the Ethiopian Airlines disaster in March.

The Chicago-based company also said it didn’t rely on either firm for another software issue disclosed after the crashes: a cockpit warning light that wasn’t working for most buyers. “Boeing has many decades of experience working with supplier/partners around the world. Our primary focus is on always ensuring that our products and services are safe, of the highest quality and comply with all applicable regulations.”

HCL also released its statement “It has a strong and long-standing business relationship with The Boeing Company, and we take pride in the work we do for all our customers. However, HCL does not comment on specific work we do for our customers. HCL is not associated with any ongoing issues with 737 Max.”

Downfall from cost cutting:

Recent simulator testing by the Federal Aviation Administration suggests that software issues on Boeing’s best-selling model run deeper. The company’s stock fell after the regulator found a further problem with a computer chip that experienced a lag in emergency response when it was overwhelmed with data.

Engineers who worked on the Max, which Boeing began developing eight years ago to match a rival Airbus plane, have complained of pressure from managers to limit changes that might need extra time or cost.

“Boeing was doing all kinds of things, everything you can imagine, to reduce cost, including moving work from Puget Sound, because we’d become very expensive here,” said Rick Ludtke, a former Boeing flight controls engineer laid off in 2017. “All that’s very understandable if you think of it from a business perspective. Slowly over time it appears that’s eroded the ability for Puget Sound designers to design.”

Rabin, the ex-Boeing software engineer, remembered one manager saying at a meeting that Boeing didn’t need senior engineers because its products were mature. “I was shocked that in a room full of a couple hundred mostly senior engineers we were being told that we weren’t needed,” said Rabin, who was laid off in 2015.

Sales from India

The typical Boeing plane has millions of parts and lines of code. Boeing has long turned over large portions of the work to contractors who follow its detailed design blueprints. Starting with the 787 Dreamliner, launched in 2004, it increased profits by instead providing high-level specifications. Then they asked contractors to design more parts on their own. The thinking was “they’re the experts, you see, and they will take care of all of this stuff for us,” said Frank McCormick. Frank was an ex-Boeing flight-controls software engineer who later worked as a consultant to regulators and manufacturers. “This was just nonsense.”

Sales are another reason to send the work overseas. In 2005, Boeing promised to invest $1.7 billion in Indian companies if they get 11$ billion order from Air India. That was a boon for HCL and other software developers from India, such as Cyient. Their engineers were widely hired in computer-services industries but not yet experienced in aerospace.

Rockwell Collins, which makes cockpit electronics, had been among the first aerospace companies to outsource significant work in India. In 2000 HCL began testing software for the Iowa-based company. By 2010, HCL employed 400+ people at design, development and verification centers for Rockwell Collins in Chennai and Bangalore.

That same year, Boeing opened a “center of excellence” with HCL in Chennai. They wanted to partner “to create software critical for flight test”. In 2011, Boeing included Cyient to a list of its “contractors of the year”. Cyient won it for design, stress analysis and software engineering on 787 and 747-8 at their Hyderabad center.

Mistakes of outsourcing to Russia:

The Boeing rival also relied somehow on offshore software outsourcing. In addition to supporting sales, the planemakers say global design teams add efficiency as they work 24/7. But outsourcing has long been a pain point for many Boeing engineers. They fear job losses and admit it has led to miscommunications and bugs.

Boeing built a design center in Moscow. At a meeting with chief Boeing 787 engineer Cynthia Cole in 2008, she complained about re-sending drawings to Russia team. She had to send drawings 18 times before they understood the importance of smoke detectors. Detectors need to be connected to the electrical system.

Price the strong attraction :

Indian Engineers make 9-10$ an hour compared to 40 $ per hour of H1b Visa in US. HCL currently has 18000 employees in US and 15000 in Europe and has deep expertise in computing. HCL won the contract on basis of a strong R&D background as said by Sukamal Banerjee, HCL VP.

As the sources say The Max was an update of a 50-year-old design. They wanted the changes to be limited enough that Boeing could produce the new planes faster. Only they needed would be a few changes for either the assembly line or airlines. Rockwell Collins hired HCL and Cyient. Cyient engineers used to do the drawings and provide US team by each morning. They faced challenges still they delivered it, but then could have done better.

The issue in the flight crashes was due to MCAS system pushing planes into uncontrollable dives . All this was due to bad data from a single sensor. Proper testing was not done in this case which made 346 people lose their lives.

Software outsourcing should be done with quality in mind. Cost cutting upto certain level is fine, but if there are major casualties due to lack of experience. It is a big failure on long term businesses as well as trust.

Boeing faced a $5.6 billion fall in revenue for the 2 quarter of 2019 due to max crisis.
