What SwiftCase optimisation means for you

Last Updated 2022/04/12

With the release of SwiftCase 2.0, the team have taken the opportunity to optimise the system in various ways. As we added new features in this version, it became apparent that existing functionality could also be improved. We have internally highlighted multiple areas that, at the time of development were written efficiently, but over time, as the system has grown, these areas can now be enhanced. Optimising a platform such as this not only improves the system from a technical standpoint but the effects will be visible within business processes.

Ultimately, the aim of optimising SwiftCase is that it runs more quickly and smoothly. There are various ways and processes to do this, but with the few tweaks made already, our clients have seen a noticeable increase of system speed, and interestingly, this has resulted in their business productivity improving further still. With SwiftCase 2.0 running significantly more quickly than before, our clients return on investment is even higher.

From a technical view, optimisation has many benefits for the whole SwiftCase team. Throughout the process, developers have the opportunity to spot any potential bugs in the code and to iron these out before they become an issue. With SwiftCase growing, even more, efficient, servers are using fewer resources, increasing availability.

Over time, fixes may have been implemented to “patch over” issues, to get a client up and running to meet a quick turnaround request, which may not have been the best solution to solve the root of the problem. The consequence of these situations is higher technical debt meaning that although the cost of a quick fix is lower at the time, as the root of the problem has not been solved, issues can arise and be extremely costly in the future. Optimising the code to address the source of the problem reduces the technical debt.

As the code is cleaned up and refactored (improving the structure of the code), the maintenance of the code base becomes more manageable. The reason why developers keep a tidy code base is to allow for extensibility. The code base will then be capable of making way for extending SwiftCase 2.0, so, we can add new features more easily.

With an optimised system, we can provide better support, offering solutions quickly. The time and effort spent streamlining the system mean that we can debug any problems efficiently while reducing the potential number of issues that may arise in the platform.

The growth of SwiftCase requires optimisation so that the system runs smoothly and users have a better experience, providing more opportunities for new features and most importantly, increasing business productivity.
