Alongside our methodical approach to identifying and implementing an IT solution to fit business requirements we use a range of tools, these often include;
- A research survey platform can effectively obtain structured feedback from both internal and external audiences. Our successful engagements, ranging from 50 to 1,000 respondents, have proven the value that well designed questionnaires have, from identifying new issues to categorising known problems. The method is quick and accurate.
- Our knowledge of Master Data Management reflects the paramount role that high quality information contributes to any successful project. Experience with standards committees and strategies for gathering data from disparate global systems has shown us which tools work best in a range of situations. We have particular knowledge of how XML can be exploited.
- When migrating from one system to another then a rigorous examination of data integrity is the key to assuring confidence. Whilst small amounts of test data are appropriate in early stages it is essential that wider coverage can be applied and proven. Using live data is not the best solution so a Data-Masking technology that can disguise personally identifiable information is ideal for security and eliminates risk.
- Our preferred solution to organising test projects uses the Zephyr platform. This enables a comprehensive and flexible response in any situation that values an easy to access system, with comprehensive reporting that suits distributed teams. These features are especially important when scaling the team size to the workload at a given point in time.
Project collaboration and defect tracking
- We regard Atlassian as the ‘Salesforce’ of distributed and Agile teams. Their offerings include JIRA which is an easy to customise projects requirements and tracking mechanism.
