On our The Software Problem page, we discuss a hypothetical situation where a business is developing an insurance policy management system. Let's see how a traditional development approach compares to TRELLIS.

Insurance Policy Example Traditional Development Approach Traditional Cost
(assuming it costs $1 for a programmer to develop 1 line of code)
TRELLIS Approach TRELLIS Cost
Database Model 20-30 unique tables, 200 attributes/columns
150+ stored procedures
$200-300K+ Data driven model - nothing to build for database to screen
UX provided across Web, Mobile, and Desktop applications
Under $20K
Business Objects for basic screen-to-database functions 20-30 business objects with 150 functions
Website User Experience 50-60 forms
Secure Access Control and Version History 25 tables, read stored procedures $50-100K Default setting $0
Unit Testing Code $300-500K Data Driven Model - nothing to unit test $0
Additional changes to data model/UX post-production 30-50% of original cost $550-900K * 30-50% = $165-450K Only data model changes required $6-10K
Automated Workflow, build and test 5-10 functions $5-10K 5-10 functions $5-10K
Estimated Total Cost
$720-1,360K
$31-40K
Approximate Effort and Duration
700-1360 days
1 year duration with a team of 5
30-40 days
1 Technical BA
1 Developer
1 month duration

Considering the costs of a traditional software development approach, and the benefits of TRELLIS, the advantages are obvious. And TRELLIS has prebuilt components that can be used to further reduce costs, effort, and delivery timelines.

Furthermore, if we do not already have the functionality you need, and it is generic enough that we can add it to our code library and reuse it, we will build it for free.
