Reduce maintenance costs

Releasing the backend of a business application in production is the beginning of a (hopefully) long maintenance and extension activity.

Unfortunately, years after the first release, developers involved in (urgent) maintenance works generally don’t have the vision and the budget of the initial dev team, and they are mostly interested in solving the problem in the cheapest and quickest way possible.

In the long run, this inevitably degrades the cleanliness and the elegance of the initial architecture, making maintenance more and more difficult and unpredictably expensive.

Maintaining a Livebase Model (rather than code scattered across hundreds of source files) is fortunately a much simpler task, made easier by the Livebase Designer actively enforcing coherence and consistency across all the model diagrams.
