Application Health Check and Performance Tuning

Get more from your existing software investments

Locus Solution’s consultants have helped many clients get more from their existing IBM, Microsoft, and Oracle applications. That experience has led us to develop a fast-paced application Heath Check and Performance Tuning service. This service is commonly conducted over a one or two week period. During this time we conduct thorough evaluations of your application implementations and deliver a series of best practices-based recommendations designed to maximize the return on your investment. Finally, Locus Solutions will provide an execution plan to implement these recommendations.

This service concentrates on the following functional areas and topics:

  • Business project sponsor and IT management: Application vision, business drivers and goals
  • Program or project management: Project status, current concerns, life-cycle management processes
  • Enterprise architect: Review reference architecture, product usage and physical architecture (server sizing, capacity, fault tolerance, etc.)
  • Application architecture: Design patterns, reusable components, development environment and source code management
  • Data architecture: Review administrative structure, data quality methodology, fragmentation among common data operations, conceptual information flows, costly information shortfalls, data syndication usage
  • Operations and management: Monitoring, exception handling and reporting, service level agreements, fault tolerance and recovery procedures
  • Quality assurance: Environment and controls, testing tools, defect tracking, configuration management policies and procedures, quality measurements and tracking, testing with external entities
