The aim of technical audit is to detect any vulnerabilities of the system, your Achilles heel, and propose a way to optimize the processes, for example automate development or optimize the costs of cloud solutions.
Outsider’s perspective will cast new light on your application and help you verify your suppliers or internal team. This way, you can make better business decisions concerning further development of your product and reduce the risk of cyber threats.
When might you need a technical audit?
There are several occasions when you may consider a technology audit
You’ve got the first version of your app developed, such as MVP, and you’re wondering what the next steps should be
When you encounter problems with your application that you don’t know how to solve or you can’t solve yourself.
You consider rewriting the code, changing technology, or a cloud solution provider.
Your app has grown so big that you need to optimize the costs or dev process to be more effective.
You’ve got doubts about your current software provider or want to verify your internal IT team.
You’re concerned about security issues and want to verify your application’s vulnerability to hacking.
