Flexibility and Adaptability of Developed Software Using Cincom Smalltalk

The Flexibility and Adaptability of Developed Software Using Cincom Smalltalk

We’ve recently talked about the speed and development of using Cincom Smalltalk.  Today, let’s look at the flexibility and adaptability of developed software crafted by our customers and partners using Cincom Smalltalk.

Flexibility and Adaptability of Developed Software

In today’s agile world where delivery into production is often demanded multiple times a day, the ability to rework and refactor code and get it back into production fast is a significant advantage. Many of our customers use Cincom Smalltalk’s environment to debug problems in production systems and then move the fixes back into the development pipeline to swiftly deliver a well-tested product back into production.

The environment allows code to be easily refactored and re-architected as it comes with a full set of refactoring tools. Because the language keeps code short and sweet, it is far easier to come to grips with existing code and make the changes needed to cope with changing business requirements.

Our business activities are constantly changing. This is how it’s always been and probably always will be. In addition to regular changes like reorganizations and new technologies, we are greatly affected by new laws and a latent wish from our clients to solve tasks as cost-effectively as possible. One way to be efficient in my work is to use as few resources as possible when developing new applications.

This adaptability has been delivered without a loss of quality. Indeed it is the superior quality of the systems created with Cincom Smalltalk that has kept many significant customers so enthusiastic about our technology.

Systems, where outages are simply too expensive to contemplate such as computer chip fab wafer plants, nuclear power stations and money-market trading systems, all rely on our technology.


Want to create your own “wow” moment? If you would like to see what Cincom Smalltalk can do for your business, we have two options for you:

Try Cincom Smalltalk ─ The Personal Use License is ideal for developers who are looking to sharpen their skills by adding new tools to their “developer toolbox.” With Cincom being a leading provider of commercial Smalltalk, the PUL also presents an opportunity for existing Smalltalkers to build their businesses and partner with a global commercial company. Regardless of the reason, the PUL allows the freedom for users to evaluate our products before realizing that Cincom Smalltalk is the right fit for their business or project needs.

Buy Cincom Smalltalk ─ The PUL program has been very successful over the years. During that time, we’ve often been asked for an option between the PUL and full product licensing. Tom Nies, the Founder, Chairman and CEO of Cincom Systems, Inc., challenged the Cincom Smalltalk Product Team to come up with an offering that would answer this request, and our team delivered the REV Program.

The REV program is a bridge between the free evaluation of the PUL and full licensing. It allows for easy entry into the Cincom platform, providing both the full product (the current release of Cincom Smalltalk Version 9) and full support for a 1-year/12-month time period. REV Program participants also have access to Cincom marketing and branding through the Cincom Smalltalk Partner Promotion Program that can help with the kickoff of the application or business.

We’ve seen many REV members successfully move from the REV Program to full licensing even before their 12-month cycle is complete. Listen as Suzanne discusses the REV Program and the benefits a user receives by becoming a partner with Cincom here.

We launched the REV Program with introductory pricing of $500, and it exceeded our expectations! Now the program is at the regular, full price of $1,000. We are offering a 25% discount off the full price of the REV Program. If you would like this deal, please email the Cincom Smalltalk Product Team to get the link and discount code worth $250.
