Neglecting the importance of well-defied requirements usually results in huge project costs and wasted time. The majority of project defects and quality issues result from poor requirements. Requirements Definition is the most critical, yet often underestimated, cornerstone of transforming a BI business case into a successful solution.
At Xoomworks, we combine our vast expertise, profound knowledge and deep understanding of the entire SAP® BusinessObjects™ product suite with the experience gained from years of successfully implementing SAP® BusinessObjects™ solutions to help you in correctly defining your requirements and set you up for business success.
As a project manager, you can significantly reduce project risk by focusing attention on improving the quality of the project requirements. Yet, a casual or haphazard approach to requirements gathering is still a common peril in BI projects. At Xoomworks, we appreciate the obstacles to effective requirements definition. Employing our methodology, we ensure early user involvement, close collaboration between IT and business and maximum stakeholder commitment. It can help you to accelerate into solution design by optimizing your development phase, and will minimize expenditure on rework and problems stemming from immature or ambiguous requirements.
Xoomworks Discovery is a series of workshops, typically spread over five days in three phases as detailed below. The workshops are designed to fast-track you into requirements gathering for your BusinessObjects™ project. We start by engaging you in building a sound grounding in requirements definition principles, techniques and requirements management; gradually moving towards the main focal point, which will deep dive into requirements definition for your projects. Our experienced and certified consultants understand the critical of clear and accurate solution requirements. They lead you through a collaborative process tailored to your specific business needs. With their deep understanding of the entire SAP® Business Objects™ product suite, and its strengths and limitations, they will prove a truly invaluable asset in identifying the correct requirements for your new BI system.
The outcome of the workshop series will be a project requirements document containing all the clear, consistent, feasible and verifiable requirements captured, analysed and reviewed during the workshops.
