Services

Our extensive experience in software development compels us to focus on the initial phases of the software life cycle. Projects that start well tend to end well, while projects that donít start well tend not to end at all, or to end badly.  Defining project scope, collecting and managing requirements, and producing effective high level design and architecture definitions are the keys to successful software development projects.

Our engagements are structured around this emphasis on the front end of projects.  There are four phases possible in each engagement.

  1. DISCOVERY, in which project scope is defined and detailed requirements collected.
  2. DESIGN, in which the high level design and the system and applications architecture are determined.
  3. BUILD, in which the necessary components are developed and tested.
  4. DEPLOYMENT, in which the developed software is actually placed into operation within your organization.

Every engagement involves the DISCOVERY phase.  Based on a high level definition of project scope, we will give you a fixed price bid to conduct the DISCOVERY phase.  You pay us half up front, and half upon delivery of a detailed scope statement and a detailed list of requirements. At that time we will also give you a fixed price bid to conduct the DESIGN phase.

If you decide to have us proceed with the DESIGN phase, you will pay us half up front, and half upon delivery of the high level design and architecture definition. Included in the deliverables for this phase will be a cross reference indicating how each of the requirements will be satisfied by the design, and a list of software components that must be developed or purchased to construct the system.  If you are interested in having us develop some or all of the components, we will provide you with a fixed price bid to conduct that portion of the BUILD phase.

If you decide to have us proceed with all or a portion of the BUILD phase, you will pay us half up front and half upon delivery of the tested software components.

Typically, your operations group executes the DEPLOYMENT phase.  If you want to have us provide services during this phase, we will write a statement of work defining the services to be provided, and then give you a fixed price bid to provide those services.  Once again, if you choose to have us provide those services, you will pay us half up front and half upon completion.
