Services Methodology

Our Methodology, a schedule that follows stringent codes of time and quality. Our methodology is the blueprint that guides us to perfect implementations.It comprehensively covers every aspect of applications development and at the same time leaving room for customized and typical solutions.

To ensure shorter turn-around and efficiency in all of our solutions, IPM Creations adheres to time-tested principles and best practices. This services methodology maximizes service quality as well as financial, operational and strategic value, and achieves the following:

Merges solution-specific deployment methodologies to a rigorous project; program and change management methodology Ensures that the expected results are delivered in a planned and measured fashion with formal communication throughout Ensures consistent solution delivery without ever losing sight of the broader business context and justification Ensures that strategies and recommendations are effectively executed and their value realized.This standardized software development methodology helps us to provide cost-effective and efficient business solutions.

Phase 1- Requirements Gathering
Our Business Consultants conduct Joint Application Development (JAD) sessions with the client. These are brainstorming sessions that help determine the business objectives and marketing goals. Prototype storyboards or screen layouts are used for role-playing.

Phase 2 -Technical Architecture
Our Technical Architects advise the client on options available to him with respect to architectural approaches and technology solutions for project implementation.

Phase 3 – Confirmation
Based on the architecture and technology chosen, the development team of Programmers, graphic designers and project managers draft a development plan for the project along with cost and time estimates.

Phase 4 -Incremental Development
This is the stage where the project is actually set off the ground. IPM Creations builds the application in progressive phases or increments. Incremental delivery permits experimentation of complex solutions during the course of development.

Phase 5 -Installation and Training
Once the system is installed on the production servers, comprehensive training is extended to the client's IT/ MIS personnel. This training is to not only help the personnel to administer and maintain the system, but also to understand the underlying technology and development tools. The end-users are trained to use the application effectively. Follow-up action in terms of close monitoring of the system and applications ensures immediate response to issues.

Effective Communication
For successful development of a system of this scale and efficiency, communication needs to be given great importance. That is why we usually have two project managers assigned to the project. One of them, either a member of our team or the client's representative, is a local Project Manager who works closely with the team to ensure seamless information exchange and monitors the progress . The second one is an offshore Project Manager and is given full responsibility of the project.
