System Software Factory


The System Software Factory (SSF) is an enterprise-class, multi-language, Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) delivery infrastructure. Early in 2005 Dynasty introduced the SSF as the logical next step to complement its Dynasty Development Environment (DDE). While the SSF manages solutions developed using the DDE, it is equally suitable for managing applications built using Java or COBOL.

The SSF uses an Abstraction Layer to model a single reference configuration for a software application that may be re-targeted, re-partitioned, and re-generated frequently. It contains mechanisms and metadata to support ALM functions such as Version Control and Change Management (including Dependency checking) and for managing project resources and monitoring workflow in real time. It provides linkages to QA testing and automatic documentation facilities.

The SSF is designed to permit rapid customization and regeneration of an application through the use of a software development framework featuring stored models and custom profiles. The objectives are to increase productivity and reduce errors when building and redeploying a software application.

Enterprises can use the System Software Factory to manage software development groups as a business process, maximizing and accelerating both team and individual performance and their work flow. Dynasty’s SSF is a customizable, process- and role-centric environment, and is one of the few integrated frameworks to address each step of the software development lifecycle.
