Business analysis

Business analysis is at the beginning of every IT and software project. Stakeholders will be defined as personas and the scope of the project and the goals will be fixed. team members, estimate costs, and set milestones until the project ends. In addition, we recommend creating a minimal prototype and a test run with future users. This ensures that all expectations are met. This conceptual work lays the foundation stone of your project and must therefore be carried out as concretely and realistically as possible. If this fails, problems arise at the beginning of the project phase that torpedo the timing and increase costs.

Our experts have excellent knowledge of the IT industry as well as the associated software development processes. This know-how allows you to take an independent position and objectively assess your project progress. Just determine a project team and in two half-day workshops we will work with your team to create the project plan. This means that nothing stands in the way of the success of your IT or software project.

Start your project successfully with our experts and meet all expectations!

Specification

Once you are looking for a suitable implementation partner, it is up to you to create a specification. This should contain all the requirements of your project and highlight the project goal. The specifications are a rough concept and contribute significantly to the success of the further course of the project. Complications often occur in formulation. It is also necessary to constantly check whether all project participants have internalized the goal of the solution equally.

The more precisely these requirements are written, the more likely they are to succeed in project implementation. We support you in the operational assessment of your requirements and involve the appropriate specialist departments of your company at an early stage. In consultation with the specialist departments, the functional groups are duly specified and the business benefits are also collected and the expected costs are estimated. Each functionality receives a separate cost-benefit assessment through our work. This makes it easier for departments to prioritize the documented requirements and to dispense with inefficient software functions. Our method guarantees you an efficient software solution that is tailored to your needs.
