Keeping Up with Changing Software will Help Your Business
Knowledge@Risk believes that keeping up with your software will help inside and outside your business. Not only assisting with cost of doing business, but also with keeping your employees happy and continuing to build your clients’ confidence in your ability to help them succeed. They recognize that your software is touched by many hands over time, some adept and some less skilled. These different skill levels leave behind a map from where your software started to where you are now, with an attempt to modernize at the core of your motivation. Knowledge@Risk, explains this concept in layman’s terms here.

2. Design engineering work assignments.
