WeedWare Development Process

DEFINE: Identify & Analyze

The foundation of any successful project, this phase allows KLER and the client to partner in identifying the needs of the project and clarify timing, cost and performance parameters. It highlights specific results and the values that the project should produce, balanced against the appropriate level of available resources. This phase also begins the process of assessing the baseline data of the legacy systems, preliminary readiness checks and preparing for implementation.

DELIVER: Build & Deploy

Following the alignment of goals, performance metrics and data validation, this phase will begin system configuration, continue data validation and hardware set-up. Training for all users (administrators & end-users) will occur during this phase. Testing is done to ensure that configuration and use-cases are accounted for. Upon completion of further validation and UAT, development freeze and deployment will occur.

OPTIMIZE: Monitor

This phase allows us to ensure that everything is running smoothly. From Go-Live checklists to on-going system monitoring, KLER is committed to supporting it’s clients post Go-Live into the next phase of business – full integration and BAU.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT & SUPPORT

Throughout each phase, a project manager is responsible for your implementation success. They will ensure that progress is being made according to the agreed upon timeline, any blockers are discussed and either removed or prioritized. They are also accountable for full transparency when it comes to the status of each task and subsequent milestones via dashboard reporting and status update meetings.
