Von der Idee zum Produkt
Aus den jeweiligen Aufgabenstellungen der letzten Jahre in der ITGAIN Consulting Gesellschaft für IT-Beratung mbH sind Ideen entstanden, um Lösungsansätze besser und mit Nachhaltigkeit umzusetzen. Aus manchen der Ideen entstehen letztlich Produkte, welche durch die ITGAIN Integration Solution weiterentwickelt werden.
Zwei Schwerpunkte haben sich hierbei bezüglich der Produktentwicklung herauskristallisiert – das Thema Performance Monitoring und Tools und Produkte für die Mainframe-Migration auf dezentrale Systeme. Letztlich werden so seit 2002 aus unbefriedigenden Projekt- und Applikation-Situationen Ideen und Lösungen geschaffen, welche in nachhaltige Produkte ihren Weg gefunden haben.
From idea to product
From the range of tasks addressed over the last few years by the ITGAIN Consulting Gesellschaft für IT-Beratung mbH, a number of ideas have surfaced for the improved and more sustainable implementation of solutions. Some of these ideas have led more recently to products that are being further developed through the ITGAIN Integration Solution.
Two core themes have emerged out of this product development, which are performance monitoring and tools and products for mainframe-migration on decentralized systems. As a result, ideas and solutions have been generated from unsatisfactory project and application solutions since 2002. These have found their way into sustainable products.
