Software configuration (restructured) PORT

(new)

Designing and deploying software product configurations into new or existing software environments/platforms.

Guidance notes

(new)

This skill is typically applied to the design and deployment of configurations of large/complex (often enterprise scale) software.

This includes – but is not limited to - enterprise resource planning (ERP)), customer relationship management, mainframes, large software as a service (SaaS) solutions, integration suites, and the management tools provided by infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) providers.

Activities may include – but are not limited to…

  • porting of software configuration across different environments/platforms
  • refactoring of complex or overlapping configurations across different modules and capabilities within software solutions

Software configuration (restructured): Level 6

(modified)

Develops organisational policies, standards, and guidelines for software configuration design, deployment and refactoring. Plans and leads software configuration and deployment activities for strategic, large and complex deployment projects. Develops new methods and organisational capabilities and drives adoption of, and adherence to policies and standards.

Software configuration (restructured): Level 5

(modified)

Takes technical responsibility across all stages and iterations of configuration development and deployment. Plans and drives software construction activities. Adopts and adapts appropriate configuration development methods, tools and techniques selecting appropriately from predictive (plan-driven) approaches or adaptive (iterative/agile) approaches. Measures and monitors the application of standards for configuration design and deployment including software security. Contributes to the development of organisational policies, standards, and guidelines for software configuration design and deployment.

Software configuration (restructured): Level 4

(modified)

Designs, verifies, documents, amends and refactors complex software configurations for deployment. Contributes to selection of development approach for projects, selecting appropriately from predictive (plan-driven) approaches or adaptive (iterative/agile) approaches. Applies agreed standards and tools, to achieve well-engineered outcomes. Participates in reviews of own work and leads reviews of colleagues' work.

Software configuration (restructured): Level 3

(modified)

Assists in designing, verifying, documenting, amending and refactoring moderately complex software configurations for deployment. Applies agreed standards and tools, to achieve a well-engineered result. Collaborates in reviews of work with others as appropriate.
