project management and code review
Programming, database, e-commerce, and security issues can be very technical and hard to understand. If you need someone to objectively review your site development, database setup, or security, or if you need help managing and communicating with your developers, PDXperts can act as project manager and code reviewer.
life support for legacy systems
Many businesses depend on older software but can't get support for it. If your software runs without a safety net, talk to us about stabilizing and extending your software, or planning for migration to a new application. Also consider web-enabling your legacy applications. Recent projects:
Integrity Logistics needed to hook their legacy trucking brokerage application to their web site, so clients and drivers can track shipments, find available loads, and report in. Their ASP-based web site communicates through an intermediate application (written in Python) to their proprietary legacy system. The screen scraper is described in detail in this article on artima.com.
