Experience Level: Intermediate
IT Asset Management SaaS Project - Senior Java Developer / Architect with RoR and SaaS Experience.

We are advising a client on relaunching a business that had previously developed an IT Asset Management System comprising Discovery and Governance modules.

The service identifies all hardware, software and users in an organisation and stores the data in a server CMDB database. It has been developed over several years with a very significant amount of investment before the company ceased trading.

The service is based on enterprise class Java on an open platform Apache Tomcat with open source implementation of Java Servlet, JavaServer pages and PostgreSQL database. The discovery modules (Win32) are cross platform and can be Java via JVM or compiled Windows, Linux or Mac and send asset identification information to the database in XML and then to a Jasper report engine. A RoR application framework has been used.

The development was approx 90% complete but had already trialed with customers and generated early revenues prior to development being stopped.

This project comprises 4 tasks :

1. To assess the current level of development of the existing solution
2. To determine the preferred feature set of a SaaS implementation of the service
3. To determine how much time, resource and cost would be required to port the current service to a new SaaS environment
4. To document the above in a report

This project will commence immediately and will initially last 2 months. We are seeking an experienced, part-time technical specialist/senior developer/architect to undertake the above tasks.

If on reviewing the project report, the investors decide to pursue the relaunch of the service and port the software to a SaaS platform, then we would expect the successful applicant to play an important role in that subsequent software development.

Applicants must be experienced Java developers, preferably with RoR/Grails and SaaS applications, ideally with system architect and some technical writing and project management experience.
