With the rapid growth of integrated services, the requirements of projects have become increasingly complex and interdependent. During the past decade, the business landscape has undergone a fundamental transformation. Product cycles have condensed, data sharing between departments has become critical and dependence on paper forms has slowed basic business processes to a relative crawl. Speed and adaptability have become essential ingredients for survival.
A disciplined approach is critical to successfully create business solutions on time, in scope, and within budget. A project's success depends as much on business objective alignment, project management, designing and development processes as on writing quality code. Merely choosing a technology is insufficient: True business success is achieved by maximizing the effectiveness of the technologies selected.
iGrid uses one of the best Microsoft proven practices for building and deploying strategic web solutions. Our key strength is our Project Cycle that works within the guidelines of the Microsoft Solutions Framework. Every project initiated by iGrid works within the Microsoft Solutions Framework.
Fundamental to iGrid's approach is our focus on industry sectors. We believe that we can add value for our clients if we truly understand their industry. This is why we invest in continuously improving our knowledge of the industries we serve.
During this stage, we define the strategy, initiatives and the intended results of the project. This stage has two phases: Envision-Strategy and Envision-Technical.
During this stage, we scope and design the e-business systems and supporting software, network, hardware and infrastructure needed for the project. The Planning stage has two phases: Planning-Scope and Planning-Design.
During this stage, through a series of iterations, we develop and deliver e-business applications and infrastructure. This stage has three phases: Developing-Detailed Design, Developing-Implement and Developing-Test.
This is the final stage where testing is performed and the team turns over the product to the operations and support teams. From the beginning of an engagement with a client, we do more than define e-business solutions for today - we also lay out the framework for those solutions to bring new and innovative capabilities to the client. This framework for continuing interaction and innovation is called Stabilizing and is delivered through two key services: e-business management and e-solution management.
