Plan the Business Analysis Phase of a Software Project Needs as Carefully, as the Development and QA Ones
The above is especially true if you are going to build really usable and understandable software.
We are old-timers in full-cycle Business Analysis, and we have long been providing Business Analysis services to Telcos and other corporates. We communicate with our clients' business stakeholders, look into these companies' business needs, gain an in-depth understanding of these needs, develop an appropriate BA approach, perform Requirements Management, document the requirements, validate the resulting solution, and, even, adjust the transition requirements, as they get influenced by regulations-caused changes (such as, for example, the adoption of GDPR).
We Provide the Following Business Analysis Services:
- Business Analysis Outsourcing
- Requirement Management Services
- Requirements Definition and Documentation
- Solution Design and Validation
Nevertheless, as unbeatable gurus in this area, our Business Analysis team can take the wand even in the middle of a software development process. For example, this can happen when your project is at a stalemate, and you, all of a sudden, realize that your developers are interpreting your requirements a way they want, while your testers are picking fights with them every 5 minutes, but fail to get the point of your real demands. Here, you can either call the fire department or get emergency Business Analysis support.
An additional superpower we have as a Business Analysis services company is our vast experience in working with databases using the SQL languages. This experience enables our BAs to find the right answers and solutions on their own, by just delving into your tangled data storage.
Being a Business Analysis service provider, we have gained tremendous experience in working with SQL databases, and this is our key strength. Expertise in databases using SQL languages helps our BAs to make the conclusions and offer solutions and improvements just on the base of your advanced data storage assessment.
We launched our Business Analysis Services practice more than 10 years ago, solidified our experience with the theory, and there are no unsolvable tasks for us now.
Communicative and Easy-Going
Our personal qualities, work ethics, ability to always understand a client and, even, our sense of humor can, often, spare you an entire elicitation session. And, certainly, we never mind facilitating our interactions with you through face-to-face communication.
Proactive and Self-Organized
We're not used to just waiting for the next requirement workshop. Instead, we dig in and find the right answer.
We are not just one single or two individual BAs, but a strong and closely-knit team. We communicate and share knowledge and experience to always deliver the best results.
All of us have a technical IT background. We are well-familiar with data querying and modeling, which is, oftentimes, essential for gaining insights and making decisions.
