Reasons to Invest in a TYPO3 Project Review

TYPO3 CMS website reviews are one of TYPO3 GmbH’s more unusual services. They offer those who build websites (as well as those who own them) the chance to get an objective, expert opinion about the state of their web project.

Rising to today’s challenges

Remember the ‘olden’ days when products and services were presented by putting together a printed brochure? When these had been printed, the task was completed. You turned away and focussed on other projects. Today, this “set it and forget it” method no longer works. Products and services are showcased online and websites are at the heart of creating business value. And one major difference between the two is that business websites are never finished.

Always consider websites as work in progress.

Take care of them: Keep them clean, up-to-date and in good working condition.

Whatever framework a website is built with, it will require maintenance and regular security updates

Are you involved in creating TYPO3 websites? Then maintenance, updates and relaunches are part of your daily business. Websites need regular attention to keep them secure and avoid potential hacks. Knowing when the time has come for a technical upgrade is fairly easy to assess, as it relates to software update cycles. If you’re implementing websites with TYPO3 CMS, there’s a version roadmap and calendar of exact support dates. But the more complex a website is, the more difficult it is to assess how much time and effort the changeover itself will involve.

This is where our independent, expert TYPO3 project reviews come into play. They can help you make well-founded decisions underpinned by hard facts.

Honest facts and figures

A typical website consists of different parts that all have to work well together. When we evaluate websites, our job is to get all of the areas analyzed and documented in a way that that makes it easy to understand as a whole.

We can carry out an independent analysis for a complete installation or for parts of it.

Aspects we look into include the quality of the code itself, safety and performance. Whichever kind of review it is, you’ll always receive an in-depth technical documentation. All of the facts and figures will be right there at your fingertips.

Where can we support TYPO3 agencies with project reviews?

  1. In estimating the complexity of an upgrade and identifying possible problem areas and potential pitfalls.
    Diving into pitfalls headfirst is no fun. Besides which, they mess up time schedules. It’s always good to know what you’re in for to be able to plan accordingly.

  2. In quality assessment (QA), improving standards and promoting consistency.
    There’s a big difference between settling for standards and setting them. Evaluating internal processes, the level of quality and evaluating if programming meets best-practice standards can help establish a benchmark for operational procedures.

  3. In assessing the workload for migrating or upgrading a new (unknown) project, including analyzing if upgrading is possible or not.
    The consequences of misjudgement can be severe. They can rip your reputation apart and can cost you both time and money. A Project Review will help you make an informed decision.

  4. In analyzing problems in specific areas such as performance or security.
    You want websites to go live seamlessly, which means setting them up and performing complete testing before the general public sees them. Ensure that a website is as safe and secure as it can be, before it gets launched. Also, just because a website “looks right” doesn’t mean that it’s performing at its best. We do a series of tests to evaluate that it’s performing as expected and assess what can be done to maximize efficiency.

A website represents a significant investment. Getting objective facts on the table can be the fastest way to making decisions you won’t regret and holding your business partners to a high standard.
