Continuous Modernisation.

Continuous Modernisation
At the very foundation of Codebots are our values based on the concept of Continuous Modernisation, an approach to drive successful digital transformation.

Business agility can be positively impacted through the process of continuous modernisation. Continuous modernisation is a strategy for legacy systems to ensure the software fits the people using it. When a software/people fit is found, momentum is gained by the organisation and business agility is increased.

Here, you’ll find answers and solutions surrounding topics such as migrating legacy systems, databases and DBMS, and future-proofing and ensuring the scalability of your projects.

Scaling up your software/people fit

Brodie O'Carroll, 26 August 2019

Imagine being forced to work with temperamental legacy systems that hinder your productivity and slow you down. When your company endorses software that is difficult to use, it is incredibly likely (and common!) that your employees will seek out alternative applications that make their lives easier. Suddenly, your organisation is overrun by shadow IT, which is a burden on business agility. It is extremely important to make sure that the software you use fits the people using it.

Access migration: from a database to the cloud in minutes.

Hayden Steel, 10 September 2018

United Postal Service (UPS) has invested billions of dollars into analytics and captured over 17 petabytes of data (equivalent to 225 years of high-definition video). Using this data, UPS annually saves 38 million litres of fuel and delivers 350,000 more packages.

How to migrate from spreadsheets to a DBMS

Declan Healey, 15 June 2018

Spreadsheets are databases, and they work well. Why would you ever want to leave a spreadsheet? Here’s a few reasons why; Database Management System (DBMS) can scale - spreadsheets don’t scale.

Databases vs spreadsheets: Excel, Access, MySQL

Declan Healey, 11 June 2018

The world’s largest taxi company (Uber) owns no cars and the world’s largest hotel (Airbnb) owns no property. Traditional industries no longer rule the world, 1s and 0s do. Data is digital oil. Like oil, data calls for extracting and refining tools. Handle both with care.

Dead software, Access databases & moving to the cloud

Brodie O'Carroll, 08 June 2018

Evolution is an integral part of life. We change, we adapt, we discover better ways to get things done. “This is the way we have always done it” is no longer a valid excuse; there exists no logical sense in sticking to the norm if there is a better way.
