Technical audit

In this approach, auditors analyze the technical choices made in the past, if standards and best practices were respected, and the quality of processes.

Why perform a technical audit on a system?

At some point in the life of an application, it may be relevant to take a step back to make the best decisions. When we audit an application, we take time to understand the business domain and the constraints of the system to be able to analyze the technical implementation. We take a deep look into the codebase to review the infrastructure and the architecture. We also take care to highlight what works well and what could be improved in order to deliver prioritized recommendations. Benefits of a technical audit include:

  • Getting an outside point of view of the system from an objective person
  • Provides documentation of the infrastructure and the high-level architecture of the system
  • Highlights the positives and the negatives
  • Checks respect for coding standards and good practices
  • Reviews security aspect
  • Evaluates quality process (e.g. test coverage, peer reviews, etc.)
  • Delivers prioritized recommendations to facilitate decision-making
