Avanade’s ALM Assessment will help define your current capabilities in 9 areas covering 46 different development practices, from User Experience to Knowledge Transfer, and help you put in place a roadmap to improve the capabilities that matter most to you and your business whether it be leveraging the power of your offshore resources or reducing the overall cost of development.
Avanade will guide you through the assessment process in three separate steps.
ASSESS. The assessment consists of a series of questions covering 46 different areas of development designed to uncover the extent of your current capability.
The assessment can be done for a single project or an entire organisation and during its course will interview as many participants as possible covering all aspects of the development lifecycle from requirements-gathering to deployment and operation. The assessment is technology agnostic and will furnish you with a final report on the area capability ratings and a synopsis of those results taking into account the dynamics of your own organisation.
PLAN. Avanade can help you plan a roadmap and identify and prioritise those areas which are most important to you in terms of its current maturity and its impact on the business should it be improved.
If Microsoft is your choice then Avanade can demonstrate the ability of the Visual Studio Team System in helping you achieve your goals through its integration approach and open extensibility.
MIGRATE. Moving to a new model of work while keeping projects in-flight is not straightforward. As well as taking into account application release plans you must also assess the capacity of the current development infrastructure and take your people into account. Some will embrace an improved environment while some won’t recognise the need and resist attempts at doing what they perceive as more work for the same effect.
Avanade can help you perform a successful migration taking into account these aspects by bringing skills from all disciplines. Infrastructure architects to plan and implement a scalable development environment. Delivery management to implement process and procedure and Solution Development to help your people adapt to the benefits from the developers' perspective.
