Proven Implementation Methodologies
Phase 1 - Requirements Defintition
This phase consists of gathering business processes and data requirements, interface definitions, and functional specifications that accurately reflect your business needs. We work closely with your team to identify business processes, which are matched to system functionality and used to conduct milestone reviews. The results are finalized into a requirements document and presented for approval.
Phase 2 - Solution Analysis and Design
During this phase, we identify those requirements that must be addressed. This phase consists of analyzing and designing the specific technical components to satisfy your requirements. Plans are outlined for data conversion, testing and acceptance criteria, training, system capacity, and backup and recovery. Upon your review and acceptance of the design, Xperia will proceed with the Development and Testing Phase.
Phase 3 - Development, Testing and Training
If necessary, as components are designed and approved, program modifications begin. Milestones are defined and measured for progress throughout the development phase. The training coordinators, to ensure minimal errors and maximum reliability, perform quality assurance and testing. User training occurs during this phase.
Phase 4 - Operational Assurance Review
This includes performing any required data conversion, conducting a "live" test to demonstrate the completed functional application. Upon acceptance a "go live" production date will be established.
Phase 5 - Go Live
An on-site programming and training support group are available to ensure that any unforeseen issues are addressed immediately.
Key Program Success Factors:
- Executive Management must lay the ground work by setting objectives and timetables
