c.-SAMM: Software Analysis & Measurement Methodology

Strategic Lotus Notes projects require only one ingredient: The ability to decide well informed!

No matter if migration, consolidation, outsourcing or web-enablement: In an application environment grown over many years there can be versatile stumbling blocks that can give you a hard time in every single project phase. This is what we address with the „cedros Software Analysis & Measurement Methodology“ (c.-SAMM), our software-driven method. With c.-SAMM we offer our experiences from 25 years of software development in the collaboration environment and enable you to quickly make feasability considerations as well as precise budgeting and efficient risk management.

The Power of c.-SAMM

c.-SAMM is the abbreviation for „Software Analysis & Measurement Method“ and delivers the essential ingredient for projects around the Lotus Notes environment: The ability to decide well informed! The modular architecture enables consolidated findings within the shortest time:

Consolidation of applications
All applications source code analysis
User- and access behavior
Composition of applications
Measurement of the infrastructure


How c.-SAMM Supports You

  • Calculate risks basing on facts.
  • Receive independent results due to a software based analysis.
  • Precise data provides you with reliable project planning and budgeting.
  • Allowing you to plan individual, alternative business cases.

Use Cases

  • Estimate migration costs
  • Identify unused databases
  • Reduce obsolete source code
  • Web-enable existing applications
  • Discover security vulnerabilities
  • Plan outsourcing scenarios
  • Analyze upgradability of your code

The modular Architecture of c.-SAMM

Module 1: Measuring the application landscape

Our tools scan any server available and initially capture the applications. The result is a holistic application catalog showing which application is a data container or contains independent selfdeveloped business logic.

Module 2: Analyzing the source code of relevant applications

Business critical applications are the core value of any application environment. After these applications have been captured reliably in module 1, the source code of this applications is measured in module 2 in order to constitute relevant facts.

Module 3: Customer-specific reporting and answers to individual questions

In module 3 we refer the measurement results in the context of the problem, meaning that we deliver different reports for different audiences in the company or sections. Data with graphical support for an easy understanding.

Module 4: Precise project planning, budgeting and risk management

We utilize the unit of „function points“, which shall make the software development process calculable. The functional scope makes development projects comparable – but esspecially we can appraise the expected migration costs very quickly, considerably and in an early project phase.
