We make the right decisions from the outset
A good software architecture not only leads to a stable and high-performance system, it also guarantees high flexibility. This allows enhancements to be implemented more easily without costs continually rising at the same time.
Because every project has different requirements, the objectives have to be weighed up carefully. bbv’s architects therefore always have the future in mind when planning digitalisation projects.
Prudent architectural decisions
Compared with standard solutions, custom software fulfils functional requirements much more effectively since it can take account of a variety of specific aspects. This affects archiving, data migration and monitoring to name just a few.
If the general conditions deviate from or even conflict with the project objectives, decisions concerning the architecture have to be made. Handling such conflicting priorities professionally is an integral element of the software solutions that bbv creates in close cooperation with the customer.
Our architectural solutions are clean
bbv’s software architects know all of the methods, models and tools that allow a targeted approach. Examples of this include agile, cloud, serverless or service-oriented architectures (SOA) and distributed systems such as microservices and self-contained systems.
This comprehensive knowledge is essential in order to develop smart solutions that can meet the demands of rising complexity. Our Clean Architecture Cheat Sheet illustrates the full scope of the aspects and methods we use to develop strategies for our customers that will also endure into the future.

Poster of tailored digitalisation based on microservices
Microservices are a practical way to create scalable and maintainable software systems via modularisation and modernisation. The poster with its many diagrams provides a detailed explanation of the aspects of “architectural principles”, “polyglot persistence”, “integration on two levels”, “scalability” and “quality assurance” among others.Poster
Practical cheat sheet on clean architecture principles and methods
A software architecture includes the higher-level structure of a software system, the discipline to create such structures and the documentation of these structures. It describes all components and relations. The cheat sheet helps to construct such architectures with more than 15 thematic lists and a total of more than 90 tips.Cheat Sheet
Poster on service meshes in microservice architectures
Service meshes generate a network abstraction for container-based applications and services in order to simplify their management. bbv’s DIN A2 poster explains the architecture of service meshes, highlights their popular features and looks especially at the topics of security, traffic management, telemetry and reliability.Publication
Thermoplan uses Azure IoT to control smart coffee machines
Thermoplan’s latest generation of professional coffee machines are connected to the Internet and produce data on the quality of the coffee and the wear and tear of the machine parts. bbv developed a secure cloud Azure IoT solution together with Microsoft to allow the large volumes of data to be analysed.Publication

Coordination of a complex cross-platform airport app development
Relax while travelling, shop in comfort: Zürich airport’s app provides customers with real-time travel information and shows all offers from the airport centre at a glance. bbv implemented the complex app development with the customer as a cross-platform solution with Xamarin and also trained the employees.Publication
Coaching for migrating from Cobol to Java
The insurance company Mobiliar develops new applications using Java technology. Employees from the existing Cobol environment are being trained in Java and supported in projects locally by an external coach. bbv also introduced modern concepts like agile software development with scrum and test-driven development.Publication
Modernisation of a cloud-based business application
The project management software “proles” was first developed 15 years ago and has been enhanced continually. bbv helped the customer to upgrade to the latest technologies and supported the development of new functions and the introduction of agile development processes. The software was modularised for this purpose to ready it for the future.Publication
Poster with an overview of .NET platform elements and tools
.NET and C# have long since been the preferred platforms when it comes to software development in the Microsoft world. The Microsoft development ecosystem is quite vast, however, and riddled to an extent with many similar-sounding terms. This clearly laid out poster shows the correlations at a glance and defines the most important elements.Publication
