Efficient solutions – tailored to suit your needs
Software development is our core business. No matter if you are planning complete new software, the expansion of your existing systems or the integration of third-party software – we your competent partner. Having the necessary experience, we provide you with reliable, state of art technology.
Successful software development is more than just making programmes run. We support you during the whole project lifecycle. With our approved process model – the IV::SolutionFramework – we ensure the continuous and systematic development from the planned architecture to a productive system in its working environment.
Careful planning leads to quality results
Good and careful planning is the base for a successful project. We acknowledge this by implementing two pre-project phases to the IV::SolutionFramework. The phases “inspection” and “strategy finding” deal with the commercial as well as the functional and human aspects of the system under development.
Clearly setting and describing goals is the foundation of successful projects. For us it is especially important to build trustworthy business relations on all levels with our partners and customers. Concrete projects usually require an individually customized solution.
Inception – more than just requirements analysis
Like no other business, the IT sector is facing permanent changes. Despite experience and high qualification it comes to the point where you have to explore new territory and fulfill challenging requirements from your users. We embrace such changes. To make sure that new technologies do not hamper the quality of our software we always concentrate on building first a solid foundation.
Therefore the “Inception” phase is an inherent part of our project structure. Opposite to regular requirements analysis the inception goes beyond the mere gathering of technological requirements and the user’s perspective. The inception aims to realize strategic arrangements, which were previously defined during the “Strategy Finding” phase. This way the IV::SolutionFramework intelligently combines business goals with software development.
Elaboration – Designing IT architecture systematically and comprehensibly.
Modern modeling tools are used for the conception and design. This is done with the Fundamental Modeling Concepts (FMC) – a method from the Hasso-Plattner-Institute. The comprehensive symbolic depiction of IT solutions enables our customers to participate in the planning of the technical realization. This fosters a common understanding about the system, the customer’s requirements and the expected technical result – throughout the whole project.
Construction – useful solutions made on time and fitting to your needs
Big projects tend to develop the problem of „moving targets“. The originally planned features lose their validation due to changing constraints as well as newly added requirements. During the “Construction” phase, i.e. the implementation, we go through short and result-oriented development cycles of 4 up to max. 12 weeks. The pressure for change during such an iteration cycle stays in a manageable range; bigger changes can be carefully planned after the iteration. If needed prototypes or feasibility studies can be built to ensure the practicability and prevent mislead development. The value of your investment is maintained and results are available much earlier.
Launch – ready for action
The tasks during the introduction of business software are highly project specific. They reach from the hardware allocation to data migration up to user coaching. From our long-lasting project experiences we know all the processes and needs of our customers during this time and can support you during the product launch of our systems.
The system’s launch usually isn’t the the end of the project life cycle. Our way of work ensures a high quality level of a software product – nevertheless the need for changes and additions will arise during the day to day work with the new system. Within our support and operation services we offer you to realize those changes systematically and in short time. If you wish we will provide you with the ability to track those change requests with our Streamliner. With INTERVISTA you can count on a solution which will always fit your needs.
