always! At no point in LegacyX's development cycles do we ever not consider how to best accommodate the user, through intuitive processes and an expertly-crafted user experience.

This isn't just feel-good rhetoric: considering the user is crucial to excellent software development, and doubly so when updating legacy software.


User On Board, or Development Fails

At LegacyX, we don't buy into the traditional misconception about software development, the one that prioritizes function over form, the outdated idea that as long as it works, that's good enough. That ancient philosophy is incompatible with reality. Without a user experience that makes software pleasant and productive to use, development fails.

The user is on board at all times, and an active participant in a development process that is as inclusive and transparent as possible.

It's more than just rhetoric at LegacyX; it's the cornerstone of our development philosophy. The user is on board at all times, and an active participant in a development process that is as inclusive and transparent as possible. There is no alternative to this, no shortcut to user inclusion: you include them, or your software will never be as good as possible.

That's why LegacyX works within the Scrum framework, using short development sprints modeled after user requests and requirements, demoing new builds regularly and gathering feedback. We work with our clients to reverse-engineer their legacy software, de-mystify it , thoughtfully update it, and improve on our updates as required. It's the most beneficial design process for all involved, leading to great software that looks and feels as amazing as it runs under the hood.
