Optimize Software and Reduce Maintenance Costs
Software maintenance and evolution often suffers from tight budgets and time limits. Learn how to get the best out of these conditions to stay competitive and to protect your investment.

Analyze, Evaluate, and Improve
We will show you how to find risks, problems and weaknesses in your systems. You will learn how to evaluate the business value of the most noticable points in your company and improve those areas that are most worthwhile for your company.

The Serious Compromise
IMPROVE helps you reconcile long-term architectural quality with short-term budget and time schedules. You avoid the accumulation of technical debts and the progressive erosion of your architecture.
