What is a Software Blueprint?
Imagine building a house without a blueprint? You wouldn’t!! The process of building software is infinitely more complex which we believe makes blueprinting the necessary starting point of any software project. Stakeholder involvement is crucial at every step of the blueprinting process so we know we’re understanding our customer’s needs and producing predictable results. We reduce risk to our customers by providing this service before signing off on any project.
When adopting a new IT system because of outdated software, or syncing multiple systems because of a merger or acquisition; we help develop technology architecture that will ensure a smooth transition. Ultimately, you want a solution that conforms to your business processes. This starts with blueprinting and ends with a fully integrated business system allowing for interoperability among multiple departments, locations, devices, and users.
- Full analysis of current systems – we team up with stakeholders to analyze current system(s) and find out what’s working and what’s not
- Detailed user stories/Expectations of functionality – we meet one on one with department heads to find out what they will need from the new system for their department to fully benefit from the implementation
- Implementation – we ensure least resistance and interruption of daily functions
We engage key decision makers throughout the process to allow for approval at each project interval.
Software Blueprints Include:
We want to know why you’re doing this project. We look at specific goals and objectives that will measure success and provide ROI that can be expected at the finish of the project.
This is prepared to define a scope as well as objectives and participants in the project
We define and document current business process, business requirements, use cases, and technical requirements
We identify tasks, risks and dependencies then create communication, change management and test plans
