MethodologyAt Zia, we are committed to providing measurable business results on time and within budget.
Our team works together with yours to create solutions that work for your business, minimize downtime, and deliver a fast return on investment.
We break our methodology into four key components allowing you to know exactly what is planned, when it will happen, and what results can be expected. For additional details on what is involved in each step, contact us.
Discovery & Assessment
Our team members perform a discovery and assessment of the ECM migration and process engineering effort required. We then evaluate business processes and the use of content management and integrated technologies. Only then do we develop the architecture and business flows for migration to and implementation of your solution.
Review & Design
During this phase, we will review the proposed analysis and initial design with architects, IT support, and any other key services teams and stakeholders needed. Discussions and whiteboarding sessions will be held for alignment to build a set of designs for the project’s phases.
Here, we plan and run development sprints, each for a set period of time, during which specific work is to be completed and made ready for review and initial testing. The product owner and the development team will agree upon exactly what work will be accomplished during the sprint. The sprints are tied to a higher level set of milestones to ensure cadence and velocity meets your goals and expectations.
Hardening & User Acceptance Testing
For each phase, a set time is required for hardening. This step includes UAT, bug fixing, and tuning. Upon completion of testing, we will assist with rollout and planning to go live.
