Unconditional IT problem solvers in the world of "solution providers"
We founded LionStack to bridge the gap
between the space-age mobile and cloud consumer apps
and grayish Windows95 (at best) era enterprise software,
that still dominates offices, kept alive by armies of coders.
Crude cars, computers, and mobile phones were luxury initially.
New technology not only makes products orders of magnitude better.
It makes them affordable without sacrificing a single feature.
We let the technology, not the headcount, do the heavy lifting.
Productivity x100
Everyone in IT is familiar with cost explosions. Here is the implosion scenario:
  • Step 1: Take a $200,000,000.00 ERP.
  • Step 2: Optimize convoluted business logic - at least 50% scope reduction.
  • Step 3: 90% reduction of the remaining code - retiring the tedious CRUD plumbing that hasn't changed since the 1970s relational database invention. Impossible with conventional technology.
  • Step 4: 75% code reduction - eliminating "user-friendly" DIY administrative UI to tweak thousands of system features - never touched by the end users. This step is impossible w/o Step 3 - freeing engineers to instantly implement customer-requested features.
  • Step 5: Fewer engineers communicate faster and require fewer coordinators. Near-perfect collaboration doubles the productivity - meaning another 50%.
  • Step 6: Fewer well-paid and adequately motivated programmers make fewer mistakes. They start to care instead of throwing code over the fence to QA. Reducing expensive bug-fixing cycles results in another 50% productivity boost. Not to mention the quality impact on the priceless customer satisfaction.
  • Result: $750K, which is 0.3% of the original $200M cost.
Facilitation of collaboration, "teamwork" poster motivation, or another managerial wizardry?
No, the technology doing the heavy lifting, and programmers writing 100x less code.
