Below are the typical steps in a software delivery process. Depending on the size of the project, these might vary.

Small project

1. Inception 2 weeks

These are pre-sales activities.

Problem Discovery 4 hours

Our sales consultant carries a structured interview to better understand your problem. We assess the issue, try to understand the environment, etc.

Vision Alignment 1 week

We will help to define the best solution to your problem. Depending on the size and complexity of the problem, we might decide to carry a separate business analysis project first. We partner with external business analysts / consultants.

Solution Architecture 1-2 days

This task focuses on envisioning the initial architecture and outlining the architectural decisions that will guide development and testing. It relies on gathering experience gained in similar systems or problem domains to constrain and focus the architecture so that effort is not wasted in re-inventing architecture.

Our team of engineers breaks-down and estimates the amount of work needed to deliver the solution.

Proposal Presentation 1-4 hour
