Sure Step Methodology
Sure Step Methodology
Our commitment to Microsoft and our customers is demonstrated in the way in which we carryout projects. We have adopted the Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step Methodology which covers the following key areas:
The Analysis phase represents the official start of the implementation. This phase defines the activities required to initiate and effectively plan the entire project.
The goal of the Design phase is to define how the business requirements will be implemented. The phase includes configuration of the overall Microsoft Dynamics solution and the design of specific customisations needed to satisfy business requirements identified during the Analysis phase.
The goal of the Development phase is to build and test the system components defined and approved in the design specifications, including developing the customisations, integrations and interfaces, and data migration processes.
The Deployment phase is where all the efforts of the project team come together for a successful transition to the new Microsoft Dynamics solution. Key activities in this phase include End User Training, User Acceptance Testing, and the actual cut-over to the new or upgraded production environment. For Enterprise projects, Performance Testing is also completed.
The Operation phase defines the activities required to close the project, provide post-production support, and transition the solution and knowledge to the customer. Key objectives of this phase include providing post–go-live support, transitioning the solution to support, performing a final quality audit, and project closure.
