Increasing the success rate of analytics projects
Ensuring that projects have a value-added purpose
Leveraging data is generally neglected when IT projects are initiated, and reporting requirements are botched in the last minute. Business doesn't always know what can be done, and developers' approach tends to be too technical.
By being close to business users and through our technical understanding of data structures and Business Intelligence, we help you build strong business cases for your projects.
Defining reachable goals and a clear scope
Another common pitfall is to underestimate the complexity of data processing, and rush into development phase without having done a thorough analysis. Issues are then discovered one after the other during the development phase (or worst, only when the project gets delivered). Delays accumulate, and projects clients are not satisfied, frustration rises among staff and management.
With years of experience doing business analysis in companies of all sizes, we are able to quickly define unambiguous software specifications with a clear logic, taking identified risks and limitations into account. We found the optimal balance to write complete unambiguous business requirements, keeping projects agile. Are you ready to start delivering on time?
Establishing quality deliveries
With clear acceptance criteria, testing scenario can be put in place, sometimes automated. The developers can identify issues preemptively. The project clients can easily validate the compliance of the reporting to their specifications.
The following is part of our DNA:
- Customer orientation
- Knowledge management
- Transparency and open communication
- Understanding the human and organizational factors
