Our process of making great products starts with our workshops. We begin with listening and understanding and incorporate this important information into our design process, with our customers (and other stakeholders) as partners at every step.
By conducting manual and automated app and software tests on various platforms, we guarantee a product that meets the highest quality standards. Each iteration step is accompanied by an evaluation.
It is common knowledge today that significant threats to data and network security affect both individuals and businesses, and they are growing. Here's an overview of the cyber security and compliance challenges facing SMBs today and the actions companies must take to address them.

After the successful development of the app/software, we continue to provide professional support if the software solution is used in a real-world environment. Here it can come with several thousand users to unforeseen problems, which cannot be excluded also by constant evaluation during the development completely. We take care of this problem and solve it together with the customer.
The new Basic
Data Protection Regulation
The European Union (EU) wants to strengthen the rights of EU citizens with regard to data protection with the new Basic Data Protection Regulation. In particular, it is intended to counteract the collection of personal data. The new Regulation applies to any person and any entity of any size who collects and processes personal data of EU citizens. This primarily affects service providers who are dependent on this data (including data processors of all kinds, but also third parties such as cloud providers).
The Basic Regulation also establishes many new framework conditions for companies, which will be punished with fines for non-compliance (up to a maximum of EUR 20 million or up to 4% of the total annual turnover worldwide).
The new Basic Data Protection Regulation has been in force since 25 May 2018. AppMatrix is aware of this and is already developing according to the conditions of the DSGVO.
The following innovations
are particularly relevant for development:
The software must be administerable by the user so that only the required data is used for specific purposes.
A function for anonymisation/pseudonymisation of personal data should be available.
The software should contain functions that support the user in the evaluation of personal data.
Technology-related data protection
The development process should take into account the requirements of data protection. Data protection-friendly default settings must already be activated on the software side.
Encryption procedures used must be comprehensibly documented. For this purpose, the software must contain authorization concepts that enable the use of the software in companies.
Data protection regulations must be transparent and visible in order to guarantee users the highest possible overview.
