Application Planning & Development

We align with our clients’ development approaches and lifecycle methodologies to provide software engineering support including subject matter expertise, planning, design, development, testing/validation, implementation, deployment, and integration support. We provide architecture support and full lifecycle software development.
  1. Research: For application and business planning, we can perform the Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) and ROI effort for applications to enable executives to make strategic decisions regarding funding and resourcing. We provided research and analysis for new tools, problem and issues resolution, and technology updates.
  2. Requirement Gathering: Initially, we meet with stakeholders to define requirements. We next perform market analysis to determine viability of the technology to support the business requirements. This forms the foundation of the project from which we create a formal project definition. Once complete, we develop formal project plans, which are presented to leadership to facilitate decision making.
  3. Application Design & Development: We lead design discussions and perform design reviews to ensure that our architecture meets the highest possible standards given the time tradeoffs. We ensure that full life-cycle software development deliverables meet specific guidelines and provide system administration, design review, and code review. Our testing process includes creating simulated environmental loads to see how the system reacts, ensuring scalability, and continuous remediation efforts and measures to monitor usage and efficiencies.
  4. Project Performance and Control: During and after project execution, Global CI monitors performance to align with stated scope, schedule, goals, budgets, expectations, and ROI. We compare actual performance with planned performance and take corrective action to achieve desired outcomes when significant differences exist. We used MS Project to document deliverables, key milestones, project schedule, dependencies, and resource allocations.
Every project is distinct. We can, and do, refine our methodology and tailor our approach to meet the specific needs of each client.
