3 Stages of Every Successful K2 Upgrade

The best practices based Upgrade to K2 Five 5.2 has 3 distinct stages. Our PowerToolz suite is designed to give you the acceleration of success at each of these 3 stages.

Stage 1

Pre-upgrade analysis and planning: PowerToolz Analyser takes stock of your K2 4.6.11 or 4.7 environments. PowerToolz Analyser gives you valuable insights as to what you have and help you really understand the level of complexity of your environment and the upgrade process.

Stage 2

Upgrade: This involves installing the new version of K2 software and then, more importantly, converting your legacy workflows to the new format. This used to be a painful and manual task. No more the case with PowerToolz Express as it helps you with the automatic conversion of your Workflows.

Stage 3

Post-upgrade validation: After your upgrade, how do you Ensure everything still works as before and better? PowerToolz provides you with Test automation, troubleshooting and admin features to set up regression test scripts and benchmark your performance.

How do you minimise errors in your software applications?

Author: Sangeetha V.

If we could live in a perfect world nothing would ever fail, however, the reality is everything is somewhat flawed; errors and mistakes are simply a part of life. Within the software world, this is no different. All software is prone to have bugs and studies have shown 50% of software projects fail. It is impossible to test every aspect of a complex software program manually.

The following factors also affect software projects:

  • Infrastructure hosting the software
  • Connectivity and offline scenarios
  • Compatibility with web browsers
  • Integration with other components
  • Existing data
  • Scalability, security, privacy requirements
  • Industry requirements

In addition to this, we as humans cannot fully comprehend our wants or needs until we have a seen it in some form. This is the reason why many users and system owners change their “requirements” after the design is completed. In fact, an average software development project experiences more than 20% change in requirements from the design stage to its first release. These changes are a common problem that impacts nearly all software projects.

This calls in a very important question; how do we combat this? If we cannot eradicate an error we must minimise it. Most software dev teams implement processes and strategies such as coding standards, testing methodologies and investments in tools and talent that identify errors; to increase the quality of software builds and decrease risks.

This is imperative for brands and companies as the usability and quality of their software reflects on their brand image and reputation. You don’t want your company to die from a bug. People have perished in the past due to bugs in control systems software.

Low code business applications platforms such as K2 help pacify this problem to a certain degree, however, every software application requires rigorous quality management. This is where Automated Regression Testing differs; it helps find problems before they affect end users. That’s why we are passionate about our PowerToolz offerings.

PowerToolz helps automate the testing of end-to-end scenarios of K2 applications. You can read why MWD advisors recommend PowerToolz for the users of K2:

Knowing what you have in your environment is essential. Taking stock is an important activity. It helps you understand what you have and quantify your process automation capabilities. Doing this periodically and benchmarking it against standards help you improve your business automation capabilities.

PowerToolz Analyser will provide valuable information to help you prepare for upgrades and implementing changes to your K2 applications. It also helps you benchmark the quality of the application configurations against current industry best practices.
