Our requirements elicitation covers analysis and design of the solution as well as designing its architecture, identification of the risks if any, in the proposed solution and finally testing the prototype. We believe in optimizing the process of our requirements elicitation and hence one of our approaches is to leverage use case scenarios for early stage elicitation wherever they are available and applicable.
Probing the solution rationale in depth is a standard procedure we follow in our requirement elicitation. We are flexible enough to let our probing exercises transform into intensive brainstorming sessions with our clients and that’s when we get the best elicitation. We also research and probe the requirements of a system from end users and other stakeholders to get a 360° perspective before setting out to work on the solution.
Our analysis and design of the proposed solution is always object oriented. In this process we collect and interpret facts, identify the problems and break down the solution into multiple components. This problem-solving approach helps us study the solution and its parts, identify its objectives and it helps us improve upon the proposed solution.
Thereafter, we set up the design template which lays out the operational details of the solution comprising the hardware, software, network infrastructure, user interface, forms and reports it will require. This requires thorough deliberation on the role of a system analyst and the skills that such a professional will need. We also factor in the methodologies of system development and how it evolves over time.
One of the priorities of the solution architecture that we develop is to help the product development teams complete their project on time and within the agreed budget. This requires us to meet the expectations of all stakeholders involved in both technical and non-technical processes. We cover the barriers affecting the different attributes of the project like technology, resources, scope, time, cost, risks and quality.
We develop the solution architecture on the basis of our ideation of the solution. One of the main challenges that we tackle while developing the solution architecture is the process of identifying the features of enterprise architecture and technical architecture that relate to our solution. Identifying the essential link between the existing enterprise architecture and the proposed solution is also crucial in developing the solution architecture.
The scope of our risk identification capabilities are designed to protect the strategic, technological, financial, intellectual property and other critical assets of our clients. Since most such assets are digitized, we cover all of the vital processes of the enterprise we protect. We have standardized processes like enterprise risk management, risk analysis, internal audits along with a number of other processes to identify the risks.
We go deep into the source of the potential risks in the solutions we offer and ensure that we mitigate them systematically so that they don’t create hurdles in the way of the success of the project. Hence, we identify the risks and their causes, categorize and mark them before working on a plan to eliminate them. Monitoring the causes of the risks and undertaking their mitigation whenever required regularly are essential aspects of our process.
We test the prototype only after we are sure that it is the best possible solution. Pushing the scope of the solution to the maximum possible range of usefulness is what our prototype testing strives to achieve. Our testing is always aimed at identifying gaps wherein a prototype has fallen short of achieving the proposed solution. We don’t hesitate to make voluminous changes to our prototype if our testing indicates the need for it.
End user satisfaction with the solution matters to us more than anything else and we stand ready to go a long way to achieve that. A methodical approach in this regard helps us optimize the time, efforts and money we invest in the prototype. We therefore, obtain feedback very early during development of the prototype by involving end user groups. Also, getting approval for the workflow early, helps us adapt the product easily.
PROTOTYPE TO PRODUCTION
Our prototype will be the closest to the solution you always wanted
Proof Of Concept
We initiate the proof of concept (PoC) as a preliminary exercise to test the solution that we have ideated. The main objective of initiating the PoC is to ascertain that our solution is viable and functional and also to understand if the idea is sustainable in evolving into the solution we have ideated. Our PoC doesn’t demonstrate how a solution will be developed; it just demonstrates whether the solution can be developed.
Our functional prototyping of solutions help us to experiment with design parameters and processes before deciding to go for full scale production. We are equipped with 3D printing machinery to produce sturdy functional prototypes that can undergo thermal, chemical and mechanical stress of product testing under everyday use parameters. This helps us save time, effort and cost that would otherwise be spent on tooling procedures.
Alpha and Beta
We undertake Alpha testing when our solution is almost ready to be presented to the market. The test involves simulation of real use scenarios in our laboratory to check for last minute issues with the solution before it reaches the market.
Beta testing in comparison is a far more advanced test where we identify a limited number of end users who get to use the product in real life environment. This is the last test before the solution is released in the market.
We design the user interface by implementing a series of steps such as, PoC, functional prototypes, alpha and beta, interface design and clickable wireframe. While the PoC is a minor process that tests the design idea or assumption, prototyping is a more extensive process that helps you visualize how the solution will work. Alpha and beta, interface design and clickable wireframe are other important extensions of the prototype.
Our clickable wireframes offer an accurate representation of the information architecture, interactive features and overall usability of a website or software application. This is the nearest experience to real usability that we offer for a website or software application. The feedback from users of our clickable wireframes help us iron out whatever little issues there may be in the website or software application.
