Usually conventional software projects are just a technical project, however, in a digital transformation, it is a continuous transformation process consisting of a strategic approach and highlighting people as well as corporate culture.
We start by understanding the corporate strategy, existing projects, existing technology, industry challenges and business processes. We then identify the gaps, thereafter fine tune the strategy to align with industry trends, industry changes and global economic conditions.
All projects are evaluated, and changes are made to project purpose, project scope, technology or even terminate the projects in some cases to align to revised business goals and strategy with stakeholders. An Agile / DevOps approach will be implemented to project delivery for best results.
