Technical debt is a silent killer, it sits quietly on your backlog waiting to strike without notice. Even worse sometimes you don’t even know it exists until it's too late. Suddenly out of nowhere software challenges you delayed or didn't know about strike leave your developers exhausted and devastated, customer’s struggling to engage and convert, and operations teams dazed by the swirl of confusion. Companies of all sizes from enterprise to startups face this common threat. Like death and taxes, tech debt is unavoidable when building software. Or is it? What if you could get ahead of the debt without losing time, money, and development cycles to the solutions?
The Kleeen Software teams has experience with startups, midsized, and enterprise software development and have seen common problems repeat themselves. Many of these problems have resulted in technical debt. The Kleeen platform builds foundations into your software to tackle these common problems letting you concentrate on providing value instead of mundane tasks.
How did we do it? Some of it is intuitive to the authoring flows in the product and some of it was just the application of hard-learned lessons.
For example, Joshua worked at a startup that needed to shift product styles and this wasn’t native to their product. Refactoring the application to the new style cost months of efforts and 10’s of thousands of dollars, so when it came time to build prototypes using KAT he made the CSS replacement a cut and paste function.
I worked at a company that in an effort to rapidly produce an MVP left out RBAC functionality. Three years and many releases in this problem was unsolvable without building a new front end altogether.
These are just two of the examples of common issues solved by using Kleeen to build your applications. There are many others listed in the chart below.
|Style Customization||CSS controls the application style and can be easily replaced/updated|
|User Roles||RBAC is built into the application authoring flows and roles are ready to integrate into your access control architecture|
|Localization||Multi-lingual support is native to Kleeen built applications|
|Simulated Data||It is easy to add simulated data to Kleeen prototypes and a library of preconfigured simulated data is on the roadmap|
|Automated Testing Infrastructure||Kleeen's exported code is ready for unit testing using NPM modules.|
|Cross Linking||Related data points are automatically cross-linked in the conceptual model while designing an application. This allows you to drive from dashboards to details and let users perform CRUD operations where needed.|
|Good UI/UX||Leveraging AI that knows how to layout software according to best practices, design elements are proportioned and placed without all the tedious work of manual alignment and sizing.|
|Product Evolution||As your product changes and evolves pages, navigation, and cross-links are automatically updated and refactored. The scope and complexity of moving your product forward is minimized increasing your agility.|
