Application Integration

Business Application Implementation, Upgrade, and Support Services eliminate errors and increase efficiency.

Synoptek utilizes a hybrid approach for project integrations which incorporates two methodologies: agile and waterfall. The sequential phased process from waterfall forces completion of certain steps before the commencement of the next. This allows participants at all skill sets to easily utilize the methodology because each phase has a specific review process of deliverables, making it easy to manage. Agile provides the flexibility of iterative development cycles, where users are able to see segments and provide feedback prior to completion of the phase.

The combination of these two methodologies is adaptable to all project types including full lifecycle implementations, upgrades, and support. This creates a higher-quality output and timely project delivery.

Phases of Synoptek’s Implementation Approach

1. Requirement & Discovery

The first step of the project development process is to establish the purpose, expectations, and plan. Deliverables typically include a business requirements document (BRD) and project plan (PP).

2. Design

The next phase details key features such as structure, criteria for success, and visualized process mapping of current vs future state. Deliverables include a Solution Design Document (SDD).

3. Development

In this phase, the project plan is put into action with tasks of configuration, custom development, data migration, security, and integration. In addition, this phase entails a sprint-based approach usually segmented into 2-week intervals that outline steps of completion to provide visual validation with the customer.

4. User Acceptance Testing (UAT)

UAT includes application testing with end-users based on test scripts and business-specific scenarios, ensuring that the software can handle required tasks based on specifications.

5. Training

There are two types of training:

  • Admin Training (AT) – Targeted for System Administrators who will be responsible for managing the setup and configuration of the platform.
  • Train-the-Trainer (TTT) – Targeted for end-users to learn the platform based on process area.

6. Deployment

This phase delivers the final product to the customer in a live production environment. It will include pre-deployment activities, such as migration of final data, code and configuration deployment, smoke testing, and user system access setup.

7. Support

This final phase is based on a customer’s statement about the final state of the implementation. This will allow us to troubleshoot any issues and provide additional assistance to system administrators such as training, enhancement requests, etc.
