The Software Factory at ObjectBuilders: The World's first true Software Manufacturing Facility

  1. 1. The Software Factory™ at Overview: ObjectBuilders
  2. 2. The Software Factory™ at ObjectBuilders An alternative to offshore development Cost is competitive with offshore – without the risk Most applications can be delivered in 30 to 60 days after the Specification is completed Utilizes industrial manufacturing techniques Reduces construction time and optimizes the specification process, saving time, money and headaches All the benefits of Agile Methodology without the risks Quick timeframes, visually oriented, well structured, well specified
  3. 3. The Software Factory at ObjectBuilders Preparation The Assembly Floor Fulfillment Engineering Models System Specification Testing Workflows QA Setup Presentation Package And Delivery Reports
  4. 4. The Software Factory Preparation The Assembly Floor Fulfillment Engineering Models System Testing Advantages of Workflows QA Traditional Setup Presentation Package Reports And Delivery Manufacturing Utilizes Lower Cost Resources Reduce Time to Market Higher Quality Predictable…Consistent…Scalable
  5. 5. The Software Factory Preparation The Assembly Floor Fulfillment Engineering Models System Testing Advantages of Workflows QA Traditional Setup Presentation Package Reports And Delivery Manufacturing Delivers Custom Business Solutions in 30 to 60 days – no matter the size An Alternative to Offshore Development Parallel Processing The Benefits of Agile Methodology Without The Risks

Complex Business Applications 100% Assembled Government – Permitting, Licensing, Inspection, Case Management Workflow applications, Imaging applications, Connected and Disconnected Retail – Commission System Manages product, agent hierarchy, plans and payments Insurance – Claims Processing and Commission System Complete paperless office system for a call center Entertainment – Partner Settlement System Complete settlement system including: payment, auditing and reporting Mortgage – Document Management and Deficiency Resolution Complete online processing for secondary market exception resolution Incentives – Salary Management and Incentive Management Modeling, planning and granting of salary and merit based compensation Medicare – Web Based Reporting System Primary care provider reporting systems Reinsurance – Contract Management System Manage contracts, billing premium and losses, commissions, fees, taxes and reporting
  8. 8. Packaged Solutions 100% Assembled eResolve – Document Management and Deficiency Resolution Complete online processing for secondary market exception resolution Case Management - eLicensing – Licensing and Permitting System Manages full lifecycle from application through enforcement Government Mobility Disconnected workflow application for offline inspections and case management Partner Settlement System Complete settlement system including: payment, auditing and reporting Salary, Incentives and Commission Management Modeling, planning and granting of salary, commissions and merit based compensation
  9. 9. Composite Applications and SOA • Represent Presentation and Business Process Layer entirely in XML • End Point Agnostic • Technology Agnostic • Interoperability, never rewrite business applications again • VBOM are well defined Contracts between SOA and Applications • VBOM makes New and Legacy Infrastructure appear as a Service • Well defined, loosely coupled applications • Highly flexible, maintainable and adaptable solutions • Easily migrate to new technology
  10. 10. Industry Alignment Charles Goldfarb – The Father of XML Technology On ObjectBuilders Advisory Board. ObjectBuilders is currently the only company that Charles Goldfarb is associated with. Originally Coined the Phrase “Markup Language” In recognition of his work, The Society for Technical Communication gave joint fellowships to Charles Goldfarb and Tim Berners-Lee the founder of the World Wide Web Government agencies are striving for higher levels of reuse and interoperability. XML provides this for data and XML provides this equally as well for applications
  11. 11. Software Factory Definition A Software Factory is defined as a facility or process that assembles (not codes) software applications to conform to a Specification following a strict Manufacturing Methodology. By utilizing the fundamentals of industrial manufacturing – standardized components, specialized skill sets, parallel processes and a predictable and scalable level of quality – a true Software Factory can achieve a superior level of application assembly even when assembling new or horizontal solutions. Just as industrialization of the automobile manufacturing process led to increased productivity and higher quality at lower costs, industrialization of the software development process is leading to the same advantages. Software Factories have gained recent popularity as a cost-effective way to reduce the time it takes to develop software. Conceptually, software factories represent a methodology that seeks to incorporate pre-built, standard functionalities into software through configuration – not code. A Software Factory uses a Software Manufacturing process and productivity tools which enable this process. Software Manufacturing is a horizontal process for the code-less assembly of any Business Software Application from 100% proven / reusable components, exactly to specification for an end user, that are delivered in consistent and predictable timeframes. The Software Manufacturing process is only achieved through the use of a set of productivity tools that allow existing components, applications, services, and systems to be easily consumed, integrated and orchestrated into the end product without the use of custom code. If there is any custom code in the application layer, it is not assembled and therefore it was not created using a manufacturing approach. http://www.objectbuilders.com/software-factory-definition.html
  12. 12. Software Productivity Tools Software Factories, assembly processes and true software manufacturing are enabled through the use of Productivity Tools. Simply defined, Productivity Tools allow non-developers / non- programmers (or, in the industrial manufacturing analogy, non skilled craftsman) to use easily acquired skills that enable them to leverage drag and drop, snap in, or point and click methodologies to create either specific deployable pieces of functionality, or, fully customized solutions that conform 100% to any horizontal software specification. Today, most organizations have adopted and utilized Software Productivity Tools across their enterprise. This has led to dramatic cost savings as well as the achievement of new levels of vendor, product, back-end and end-point independence. Productivity tools are paving the way for software factories. http://www.objectbuilders.com/software-factory.html
