To get best out of Software development, business analyst has to define requirements clearly and accurately. Change in requirement set off a cascade of delays, revisions and rework. In spite of many companies having agile methodology the reality is that many business continues to struggle to deliver software on time and budget and many projects do not align with desired goals.
Why is it so difficult to deliver software on time and on budget that aligns to the business goals? This is just because of communication chaos.
Poor Requirement Gathering is a Communication Chaos
In majority of cases poor requirements practice remains a root cause of project failure. Though, planning and launching a project is complex. A wide range of stakeholders – business analysts, coders, quality engineers, legal and managerial staff, end users and IT administrators – have to collaborate on the initial set of requirements, and they must all evaluate and participate as the application evolves. At various points in the process, any of these stakeholders can introduce change. This complexity can lead to miscommunication chaos.
Typical software delivery activities include requirements gathering, planning, design, implementation, testing, documentation and deployment. With so many activities cost of correcting defects rises in the development lifecycle when they are identified. Cost of correction is least when carried out in the requirements phase and increases as it goes to planning, design, coding, testing, and when application is in final stage.
The planning phase within the software delivery lifecycle involves the important task of defining the requirements or requirements analysis. Stakeholders typically have an abstract idea of what they want as an end result, but not what the software should do. Missing requirements is one of the biggest contributors for chaos.
Building Right Thing by Turnanto
As much of the delay, rework and waste associated with a development project can be avoided when requirements are defined clearly and collaboratively from the outset. This is achieved by Etelic by focusing on the developing prototype system- Turanto™, which leverages established patterns and practices to create a more complete and working prototype, allowing stakeholders an immediate hands-on capability.
Turanto, a browser based tool, enables domain model specification with prediction around visual interface, database design, and integration needs.
Turanto has a rich feature set:
- Build working Web Solution
- Build working Mobile Solution
- Need Browser to build Apps
- Built in Security
- Business Workflow
- Auditing & Journaling
- All Apps for the Cloud
- For Developer’s ease
- Download complete Source Code
- Build in Validation Rules
- Build in Roles & Permission Management
- Role based Rules
- Create web & Mobile App from existing database
- Simple & Faceted Search
- External Application Integration (WSDL or REST API)
- Web Services
- Reporting Integration
How Does it Work?
Turanto already provides significant rapid prototyping capabilities – that take a concept all the way to an almost complete software system.
Turanto just enables the business analyst to apply their understanding along with using a tool that affords them the ability to deliver solutions at a much faster pace with fewer mistakes.
Turanto transforms all business needs, which are generally in English to actual running web & mobile application and when business needs are finalized then Turanto interprets the requirements from the model and creates:
- Requirement Document
- Architecture Document
- Deployment Guide
- Database Design
- Security Guide
- Customization Guide
The patterns included are generic software engineering patterns. A large organization can customize these patterns to include internal integration patterns, security practices, and built-in objects (such as “Patient” for HealthCare, or “Inventory” for a manufacturing outfit), so that the prototypes built already include the custom integration. Turanto already has such integration capability and thus, the custom application is more specific to the end user environment.
For further needs whole source code is available for developer for further application enhancement. The standardized code makes all resources – non-programmer to senior developer – more effective and consistent. By default they follow the same patterns and architecture defined and established, introduced over time. Thus all stakeholders are on platform which reduces communication chaos and in turn saves time & money for organization.
Turanto helps in
- Building right thing through team collaboration and reduces communication chaos between stakeholders.
- In taking better decision based on real time and accurate information.
- Changes can be made on continuous basis with business priorities without any communication chaos.
