Upgrades & Sustainability
Continually improve your software products in areas of design and user experience by staying up to date. It’s imperative to think about both the front end and the back end simultaneously in order to keep your website running smoothly. Performing Django and Python upgrades increases security, reduces long-term development and maintenance costs, and ensures support for future growth.
At Caktus, we also consider sustainability when creating web and mobile applications, helping your systems reduce load times, boost overall efficiency, and enhance the user experience.
Reduce development and maintenance costs
Your website is an asset that requires continual maintenance. Upgrading as each long-term support release is available naturally reduces technical debt by eliminating old, unnecessary code. It also allows your internal development team to reduce the time and money spent on addressing security issues, freeing up time for them to work on website improvements or revenue-generating work.

If a vulnerability on your site is taken advantage of by cyber criminals, your organization could lose revenue and reputation. A solid security plan with regular upgrades reduces risk and can save you the trouble of expensive, reactive steps in the event of a security breach.
Provide support for future growth
Making software upgrades part of your growth plan allows for cost-effective feature enhancements, changes, and scalability. Avoid expensive custom workarounds that leave your application unnecessarily clunky and out-of-date. By performing scheduled Python and Django upgrades, you gain the ability to scale your application and add new features in less time and with lower costs.
Connect business features and sustainability
Planning for both business features and sustainability helps ensure desired feature functionality, as well as future growth with minimal technical debt. Our developers embrace sustainability — utilizing smaller, more constant updates to keep your tech maintained for longer. This method allows for performance improvements, enhanced security, more opportunities for upcoming features, and insurance against broader technical issues in the future.
