DIGITALIZATION AS A SERVICE

Nowadays, the term digitization can be found everywhere. Many businesses are feeling the increasing pressure to act in order to remain competitive. On the one hand, this involves optimizing internal and external processes to increase efficiency, reduce costs or improve quality. On the other hand, it is about establishing new business models to generate new value chains. There is no alternative to a comprehensive digitalization. These drastic changes cause uncertainty or even fear of wasting money unnecessarily for measures and results that are difficult to calculate. This means that this important step is often taken far too late or not at all.

From our point of view, there are the following challenges of „classical“ digitization:

  • High costs and time expenditure for extensive concepts without practical reference
  • Lack of resources and know-how to advance the digitization process
  • High dissatisfaction of customers as they are not sufficiently involved in processes
  • Threat of Disruption due to slow development of new business areas
  • Too much dependence on (digitization) service provider

„DIGITIZATION IS COMPLEX, DIFFICULT AND EXPENSIVE!“

WE SAY: "IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE!“

DIGITIZATION SIMPLY DELIVERED

Basically there are two possible ways to start digitization. You already have a concrete digitization strategy (top-down) or you have selected a specific use case (bottom-up) to start with.

STARTING TOP DOWN

In order to shape the digital change in your own company holistically, start the digitization process with a strategic approach. Together with a consulting company or an external partner, you will develop a digital roadmap. Concrete use cases are the result of this step.

You do not have a digital roadmap to start your digitization strategy? Together with our partners we would be pleased to prepare a comprehensive analysis. For us, it is important to consider your requirements as precisely as possible and to focus on technical and practical feasibility.

STARTING BOTTOM UP

The right digital support for your business is long overdue. But IT utilization, low prioritization or general business policies mean that your department is still working with traditional methods and is threatening to miss the mark. Accordingly, you already have a concrete use case and need a digital implementation in the form of an application or a proof of concept.

Together with you, we not only implement the solution according to an agile procedure, we also enable you to create it yourself. In the future, you will be able to implement further use cases yourself or adapt existing ones.

WE'RE NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT DIGITIZATION

We start them together with you – now and immediately!

Nowadays, the key factor for the success of an application is speed. In order to be able to respond flexibly to change requests and to face upcoming challenges in the digitization process quickly and dynamically, we work with agile methods. This means that requirements and tasks are processed at predetermined intervals, so-called sprints. You as the client are actively involved in the development process, so that you can incorporate your requirements at any time. This eliminates time-consuming and cost-intensive change requests and ensures that the result meets your expectations.

Our agile approach allows us to shorten the time from the initial idea to the implementation and go-live of an application and at the same time significantly increase efficiency.

OUR APPROACH

In the first step, the requirements engineering, we deal with your individual requirements together with you. Determining, analysing, specifying and validating all properties and framework conditions helps us to define concrete user stories. Subsequently, these are entered in a central order, also known as a backlog.

Systematic prioritisation
In the second step, the backlog estimation, the properties of your application are listed prioritized based on the backlog. You can remove requests and add new ones. The properties you prioritize are then scheduled in individual sprints.

EXECUTION

FIRST TANGIBLE RESULTS IN 3 DAYS

With the Sprint Planning we plan the next project stage (sprint) together with you. A sprint represents a defined cycle (iteration) of usually 1-2 weeks. In the Sprint Planning Meeting we decide together with you which requirements should be processed. During the process, the backlog stories are refined and evaluated. Based on the low-code platform Simplifier, we create your integrated application in the creation phase in form of a user interface, an application logic and the integrated systems. During deployment, we drag the configured application to a test instance in your company. In the Sprint Review, the created application is discussed with you and released for testing.

After the sprint is before the sprint!
If changes are requested during testing, these are scheduled in Sprint Planning and the cycle repeats itself. The number of iterations that are performed according to the scheme described above until the application meets your requirements.

Through this approach, we can digitally implement the first components of an application (minimum viable product) at a very early stage. This is part of a proof of concept and proves or disproves the effectiveness of the measures defined in the strategy. At the same time, this determines the direction of the subsequent development steps.

FLEXIBLE INTO THE FUTURE

After a successful implementation of the application, the activities for going live are planned in the cut-over phase. The go-live is then used to deploy the configured application to the production instance in your company.

INDEPENDENCE FROM THE SERVICE PROVIDER

In order to be able to react quickly and flexibly to changes inside and outside your company, the choice of the right digitization software is fundamental. Our team will be happy to assist you with new projects and support at any time. However, we are also happy to leave this field to you or your service providers. Due to the configuration approach, the low-code platform Simplifier can easily be used after appropriate training, so that you can implement further integrated business and IoT applications on a standardized technology without great programming effort.
