The typical implementation of our products starts with a project kick off, where we determine the nature and order of tasks to be undertaken. Depending whether there are any gaps between desired business process and existing off-the-shelf capabilities, we prepare a project plan, including optional development iterations, training and roll-out procedures.
There are also options to phase implementation into multiple roll-out cycles, depending on business requirements and goals. This approach is typically preferred by clients with clearly separated products, locations or organizations and/or there is a practical need to launch step-by-step into the production.
Our implementation method supports both small and large-scale implementation projects. A typical large-scale implementation period consists of:
- Implementation project is initiated in the kick off session, which is typically 1-2 day workshop where the whole project team and the key members of the project team will participate. Among other practical goals, the aim is also to introduce team members to each other in order to create a better starting point for future electronic communications between the team.
- The goal of the analysis workshops is to identify in detail the gap between the existing product functionality and the client requirements. The analysis is divided into several workshop sessions, based on the different functionality groups in the product.
- Development iterations can start when one or several analysis workshop requirements have been agreed upon. The advantages of this approach are: the total delivery time will be shorter; the results of the iteration will be presented early enough for review before final release.
- The roll-out phase includes setting up the production environments, setting up and migrating the data, training the users, approving and releasing the system to live production.
