Benefits of the Quick Application
Copyright (C) 2003 by Steve Litt
Your development team is busy designing the EJB architecture for your new
application. Things are going well and they should have the application done
in a few months. Life is good.
But the HR department needs this app RIGHT NOW. If they had it today, they
could reduce or eliminate overtime. If they had it today, hiring would be
done more quickly so that the best applicants wouldn't be scooped up by faster
What to do? Rushing your development team would lead to an inferior app.
Design in haste, repent in leasure. But HR desperately needs this app.
The answer is a quick app. Have someone like me come in, give them specs,
and have them whip out the app in Perl.
Perl is a language whose whole purpose is getting something running quickly.
In the hands of an expert practitioner like myself, it's unbelieveably quick.
Depending on the complexity of the job and the organization of the specs,
a week might be a reasonable timeframe.
I work exclusively by the hour, so typically a week's work is less than $3000.00.
For that price you give the HR department the ability to input data right
now, and use the app right now. Better yet, the $3000.00 you spend on your
quick app is likely to save you much more than that on development costs.
Saving on Development Costs
If the specifications given your development team are faulty or incomplete,
the quicker you're made aware of the problem, the less you spend rectifying
the problem. What better way to find out than providing the users a quick
app, based on their specifications, in week 1. Also, design minefields are
discovered and mapped out during the quick app, enabling your development
staff to avoid them. On a large project, a quick app can save several multiples
of its cost.
