Implementations

We deal with implementations in:

Descriptions of project phases:

Project preparationShow

The primary objective of the first phase of the implementation is to prepare the project in terms of its organization. The Customer is required to ensure full support for decision makers in order to enable effective work and introduction of changes in the current environment. In this phase, the following issues should be considered:

  • A clear statement of the mission and key objectives of the project;

  • Refinement of the project scope;

  • Defining the system implementation strategy;

  • Preparation of a framework schedule of the project;

  • Establishment of an organizational structure and roles in the project;

  • Setting up a project team on the side of the Customer and the Contractor;

  • Assumptions and risks adopted prior to the implementation;

  • Methods of communication and contact details of key stakeholders.

The work at this stage involves the preparation of three key deliverables:

  • the Project Charter including the project definition;

  • the Project Plan;

  • Rules and regulations including project management procedures.

Business and functional analysisShow

The analysis phase is a process of identification and understanding of the Customer’s needs regarding the required functionalities of their IT system which aims at facilitating the achievement of long-term business goals.

The result of a properly performed analysis is a list of documented requirements with specific priorities, which enable the system implementation to be planned. Prior to the realization phase, the proposed solution should be evaluated.

Business Blueprint preparationShow

The Business Blueprint is a model of target processes that will run at the Customer’s company after the system implementation. It allows you to clearly define the scope of the project work through taking into account the models of processes and data structures used in the system.

This phase includes:

  • Training of the project team to familiarize its members with the target system;

  • Descriptions of target business processes;

  • Creation of the Business Blueprint document;

  • Preparation of the IT environment for the realization phase.

RealizationShow

This is a phase of system configuration in accordance with the approved business blueprint. The project team prepares a solution that meets specific requirements so that all assumed system functions are delivered. The deliverable of this phase is a prototype of the target system.

In this phase, the following activities are performed:

  • Standard configuration and its acceptance;

  • Preparation of migration tools and carrying out the test migration using sample data;

  • Building and testing interfaces enabling transfer of data between the system implemented and domain systems used by the customer so far;

  • Development of defined system extensions that provide the functionalities specific for a given customer and not covered by the standard solution (including additional reports and forms);

  • Preparation of authorizations that allow access to specific data to be restricted depending on the role of the system user;

  • Unit and integration tests;

  • Preparation of configuration documentation and materials for key users;

  • Preparation of a production environment and system administration.

Training and testingShow

Upon completion of the realization phase, the system is prepared for production operation. The system is fed with migrated system data and key users on the customer’s side carry out acceptance tests, which are aimed at the formal confirmation of the quality of the implemented system (its conformity with the blueprint). At this stage, users are trained in order to be able to freely use the system.

The accepted system is transferred to the target system environment.

Go-live of the system and post-implementation supportShow

At this stage, the go-live of the new system takes place. Users start to use all the capabilities of the implemented solution in their daily work, with the assistance of consultants from the project team. A monitored start-up usually takes one month to include related to the month-end closure in the accounting and controlling.

This phase is the last element of the project, which ends with the signing of the final system acceptance record.

System developmentShow

New functionalities can be developed in the form of prolonged post-implementation support, or as mini-projects. Typically, this is done by means of a formal process of requesting changes where changes are evaluated in terms of their business usability prior to their implementation.
