Information Management Solutions
The primary goal of an information management solution is to provide the knowledge that leads to timely and accurate decision making, help with tasks, and information for studies and analysis. Many companies are relying on databases that, while providing the "information" based on the underlying data, do not provide "knowledge". Helping firms work with data using our analysis model supports the use of data for creating knowledge.
While there is no cookie cutter, "one-size-fits-all", methodology to software development, we tend to be most successful with our modified version of Rapid Application Development (RAD). RAD is appealing because it allows for a tolerable level of a design-on-the-fly practice, focuses on quick and quality delivery, and minimizes the amount of documentation required prior, during, and after development and delivery. RAD is accepted more today because of the ability to design/develop the user interface with a minimum of coding. Seeing the user interface during the development process allows for quick and subtle changes during the process.
We can address the Planning, Risk Assessment, Milestones with Deliverables, Development and Delivery, and the Limited Availability aspects of your software development efforts.
New Product Development
Project managing creative endeavors is quite another story. R&D organizations building products that haven't existed before need a special type of project management to not only better predict realistic milestone dates for management, but to truly deliver a complete product on schedule.
