NesTECH takes a fast, flexible, and fresh approach to application development for corporate companies. Our methodology uses an iterative approach and features facilitated workshops that bring together key client users, executives, and IT professionals to reach agreement on an application's business case, strategic objectives, and functionality. This approach enables us to deliver results in unprecedented time frames

  • Enterprise Application Development

  • Client/Server Application Development

  • Object Oriented Development & Methodologies

  • Data Warehouse Resource Planning

  • Lotus Notes Development

  • Access Development

  • Custom Applications Build.

The first step in our approach is the Requirements Analysis phase, it is the most critical step in our Corporate Application Development process. During this phase, we work with the client's users, IT professionals, and executives to identify:

  • executive requirements

  • critical success factors

  • roles and responsibilities

  • high level business requirements

  • initial logical data model

  • application architecture

  • project scope and cost estimates

We also matrix the application's functionality and prioritize each function by its business benefit and technical complexity. This provides the team with a "road map" for deployment that eliminates non-strategic steps, prevents "Scope Creep," and enables rapid, on-time delivery of the solution. The functionality matrix also helps the team determine if a package solution can meet any or all of the proposed functionality, or if custom development is necessary.

Once requirements are finalized and Partner Commitment is achieved, NesTECH employs the remainder of SOLUTIONS Method to bring the project through full life cycle to completion.

How Does our Solution Method work?

  1. Requirements Analysis Phase

This is the first and most critical step in our Corporate Application Development process. During this phase we work with the client's users, IT professionals, and executives to identify key information including; Executive requirements, Critical success factors, Roles and responsibilities, High-level business requirements, Project scope and cost estimates, Initial logical data model, and Application architecture. We also matrix the applications functionality and prioritize each function by its business benefit and technical complexity. This provides the team with a "road map" from which to deploy the solution.

  1. Design Phase

During this phase the design specifications are created, detailing the new system down to the level of program and file specifications. Several areas of design-application, database, network, architecture, and package selection are performed concurrently, and the results are then integrated to produce the total systems solution.

  1. Construction Phase

The Construction Stage is the build phase. During this phase, the products specified in the Detailed Program Specifications are written and tested. The database is populated with test data, and new hardware configurations are tested. Finally, the system is tested as a whole, and preparations are made for user acceptance testing.

  1. Documentation and Training Phase

The Documentation and Training phase occurs concurrently, and in synchronization with, the Construction and Acceptance phases. The objective of this stage is to transfer to the users and operations staff the knowledge of the new system that has been accumulated in the preceding phase. The users are prepared in this stage for the performing acceptance testing and eventually adopting the new system.

  1. Acceptance Phase

The Acceptance phase is the time when the users review the completed system and evaluate it for conformance to expectations and the Requirements Document.

  1. Support Phase

The activities of the Support phase entails everything that follows cut-over, from monitoring and reporting on system performance, to managing change control procedures.

  1. Cross-system Life Cycle Phase

The Cross-system Life-Cycle phase comprises the tasks and activities that are ongoing throughout the other phases of the life cycle. They are collected into a single, project-long "phase" to underscore their importance to the project success.

Who are the people of our solution method?

  • Client Sponsor

The Client Sponsor is an executive or upper manager responsible for the success of the project. He or she has sufficient authority to ensure cooperation and commitment from all client personnel. The Client Sponsor has decision-making authority, and often has power of final approvals. This person will be heavily involved in the initial start-up activities, and will have review and sign-off responsibilities at the major checkpoints of the project life cycle.

This person is assigned to work closely with the Project Manager and other team members. The Client Liaison is responsible for interfacing the client and NesTECH personnel. This includes performing introductions, providing information or direction to sources of information, assigning clerical or administrative assistance to the project team, and procurement of other resources. The Client Liaison is also the source of valuable business, functional, and political knowledge about the organization.

  • Steering Committee

The Steering Committee has authority of approval over all aspects of the project. This is the decision making body for the project, and has the responsibility of review and sign-offs on final deliverables. Additionally, any changes made to the Project Plan will need approval by the Steering Committee. Typically, the steering committee will include the Client Sponsor (possibly), the Client Liaison, Lead Users and the Project manager. The Steering Committee will be involved at all checkpoints, and will be kept informed regularly of the project status.

  • Lead Users

Each business or functional area will have a Lead user, responsible for decisions regarding functional requirements in that area. The Lead is responsible for ascertaining and ranking the needs of the End Users. The Lead User will be heavily involved during the Requirements stage, with sign-off responsibility for a large commitment during the Acceptance stage and user acceptance testing.

  • End User

End users are those people who will be making use of the completed system on a daily basis. Their involvement includes being interviewed during the Requirements and Design stages, and they will comprise the audience for user documentation and training. Ultimately, the success of the project lies with the satisfaction of the end users.

  • Business Analyst

The business analyst is responsible for identifying the functional needs of the organization, and for helping to translate those needs into requirements. The Business Analyst will have strong functional knowledge on many areas of the business. He or she is responsible for identifying needs, and reviewing user requirements in light of overall business goals and objectives.

  • Designer

The role of the Designer is to translate the Requirements Document into the technical specifications required to implement the solution system. His or her job is to identify and resolve the technical issues involved in implementing the system. This will include program, database, network specifications, and technical documentation.

  • Programmer

The job of the programmer is to convert the Detailed Program Specification into working, documented object code, and for completion of unit, integration and system test plans. Programmers are responsible for meeting their assigned budgets and deadlines, and for raising any issues that could affect the quality of the system.
