A main concept of SCOUT² Development Platform is the clear separation between the platform-specific view of the infrastructure, like it is needed by the administrator of the development environment, and the platform-independent view of the projects, like it is needed by the application developers.
Software development in heterogeneous system environments often requires a comprehensive and time-consuming training of the developers. SCOUT² solves this problem by strictly separating the logical level of the project work and the physical infrastructure. I.e. the level of storage location (directories) of the individual objects and the process implementation. The technical implementation of the development processes and the technical infrastructure of the projects are centrally defined one-time by the administrator. As a developer you must only take care of your logical project structure and your objects.
Whether you want to get an overview as a project manager, or you are actively involved in the project development, or your mind is focussed especially on the version control in the area of maintenance: With SCOUT² you still have an overview of your components and processes - by standardized and even individual project views.
SCOUT² provides a range of features and tools that considerably simplify the governance and maintenance of the logical and physical project environments. SCOUT² also makes it possible to adapt the work environment exactly to the business-specific requirements. SCOUT² supports individual project structures of an arbitrary complexity.
Especially at the migration from existing applications to new platforms and/or technologies, SCOUT² provides the opportunity to continue your work in your well-known and familiar project environment without any problems. New modules, processes and results are provided in a known manner. So you can focus on the actual tasks.
The central definition of the development processes and project structures guarantees the compliance with your business policies.
The features for the configuration and administration comprise:
There is a wide range of development environments, tools and applications. By integrating them into your SCOUT² environment, you can provide a more comprehensive and more efficient development environment.
SCOUT² guarantees individuality, adaptability and openness for future requirements.
