Uncovering Hidden
Legacy Technical Debt

Understanding legacy technical debt requires a deeper dive than simply reviewing a backlog. At SQA Consulting, we believe in examining the entire software development life cycle (SDLC) to identify & address the root causes of technical debt accumulation.

Redefining Legacy Technical Debt Assessment:

While many organisations focus solely on backlog tasks, the reality is that legacy technical debt stems from various aspects of processes, people, & approaches across the SDLC. Our approach delves into these critical areas to provide a comprehensive assessment.

Addressing Common Challenges:

Clients often encounter challenges related to legacy technical debt, such as:

Cluttered Applications:

Cloned applications with multiple variants lead to maintenance & testing complexities.

Deteriorating Designs:

Degraded high-level & low-level designs hinder decision-making & application construction.

Uniformity Issues:

Lack of consistency across design, development, & testing processes, especially with geographically dispersed teams.

Coding Standards & Security:

Poor coding standards & invisible security vulnerabilities compromise application integrity.

Our Solution Benefits

Our solutions offer tangible benefits to address these challenges:
