Krake Softwaretechnik

 

 

Our services

As an independent and vendor-neutral IT-specialist, we provide a broad range of knowledge concerning information technology in general, mainly for medium-sized companies.

Software Development

 

If you’re technically not up to date, you cannot compete. That’s why we’re developing software based on the lastest technology.

IT Consulting

 

Sound and in-depth consulting first needs experience. For more than 30 years, we haven´t been talking about IT and software — we´ve been doing it!

Training

 

Knowledge is the major resource companies can’t get enough of. Improving skills and promoting talents inhouse is one of the most important strategic struts to enable one to cope with the new globalized challenges. We provide the necessary training and up to date hands-on experience to get your staff ready for the future.

Project Disaster Recovery

 

Bet on the wrong horse? This can happen and unfortunately, it does happen. There are many reasons why projects fail. Very often, a serious lack of competence inevitably leads into what is called the complexity trap. Whatever the reason is, we have already reanimated deader than dead projects and successfully accomplished them . This is one of our key competencies.

 

Open Minded

Mutual collaboration is the key to corporate success. Only those who are open-minded have the opportunity to improve their know-how and effectively turn it into success. That’s why our concept for success is based on the following elements:

P

Complete disclosure of the source code.

You will receive the entire source code, no ifs, ands, or buts.

P

Usage of open source tools.

What applies to us, we also expect from the tools we use for a project: development tools, integrated development environments, and most importantly, the so-called frameworks have to be available as open source.

P

Know-How Transfer.

We know how to manage a project successfully, and you know your business like no other. The benefit lies in the combining of the above. We will coach your IT-staff, enabling them to modify and extend the software on their own. During the project, they will learn the technology, methods and hands-on experience using the tools. At the same time, we will thoroughly implement your requirements according to your expectations.

P

Expensive? No!

You only pay for services actually rendered. And, because open source is free of charge, you won’t have to pay any license fees, and we are not forced to increase third partie’s sales volume. Furthermore, we are especially quick, particularly due to our Java framework Tentackle and our agile code generator Wurbelizer. As you have already guessed, both are open source. In addition, you will benefit from our long-standing experiences in software development projects. After all, we didn’t just start yesterday. We’ve been doing this in different domains for over 30 years.

Technology

The kind of technology tells a lot about the one who is using it. That’s why we would like to tell you, what we really appreciate.

Java

a is not only an object oriented programming language, but a platform as well. The ingenious thing about it is that the java platform runs on different operating systems. Whether Windows, Unix, Linux, Mac-OS or Solaris: we develop applications only once and they run everywhere without modification.
Java originates back to 1991 (The Green Project). Today it’s one of the first class technologies for newly started development projects. We already began to work with Java at a time when it wasn’t really fit for professional usage. However, we always believed that some day it will become as important as Cobol or C once were. And so, we began to develop tools and methods for and in Java to make it suitable for our projects. That’s how the framework Tentackle and the code generator Wurbelizer were born. Today, our early and long-lasting investment into this fascinating technology pays back more than ever before. When it comes to professional Java, we are at the bleeding edge!

UML

The Unified Modeling Language is an excellent tool to structure one’s thoughts visually and a common language for both our customers and us. A picture tells more than a thousand words.

Unix and Linux

Unix has a long history, especially with regard to the information technology. We’re using Unix in all of its derivatives since it became available for the first microprocessor-based computers in the early 1980s. The overwhelming success of Linux, which appeared in 1992, and today is one of the major Unices, pushed this powerful operating system family even further. The outstanding stability, security and elegance of Unix and/or Linux makes it the first choice for professional servers. As if we didn’t already know it.

Generative Programming

It has always been the dream of software developers, that one day you just have to press a button and a magic programming machine will do the job, spitting out the application ready to run. Dream on…
It’s still a long way to go, but we’re getting closer and closer. Thanks to our code generator Wurbelizer, we’re able to generate a significant part of the source code automatically. By doing so, we’re not only quicker than others, but our software contains less errors as well. It’s a matter of quality.
