Start Development with Discovery Phase
The Discovery Phase is a preparatory stage before development and the first step from an abstract idea to the implementation of the intended project.
We can suggest the optimal way to implement your business idea or help improve an existing product.
Do you want to
We can help you assess prospects and choose the optimal development path:
- We will refine your idea by analyzing the situation, assisting in formulating and testing hypotheses, and structuring requirements.
- We will create a consistent product development plan.
- We will select the optimal implementation approach, including technologies, stack, and architecture.
- We can assist you in presenting your project and securing financing.
We will propose ways to enhance your product's effectiveness:
- We will audit your current product and assess the usability of processes, interfaces (UX), code, integrations, and architecture. We will identify bottlenecks and provide recommendations.
- We will provide guidance on how to replace imported software with a solution from the Register of Russian Software.
- We will suggest optimizing the current solution through process automation, RPA robot implementation, and more.
- We will develop an improvement plan, compare the new solution with competitors, and identify features for further product development.
Discovery Phase Stages
For each project, the stages and tools of the Discovery Phase are individually tailored based on your goals and needs, project type, and level of concept detail.
• We will describe the business processes and their relationships within the product.
• We will develop business requirements for the application and external services.
• We will engage scientific expertise in the project if necessary.
• We will determine possible limitations.
• We will develop technical requirements for the application and third-party services.
• We will analyze data quality.
• We will describe user-friendly and clear data showcases — BI dashboards.
• We will define behavior patterns and create a user journey map (CX and UX).
• We will analyze user feedback, identify weaknesses in competitor products, and proactively address them in the customer's project.
• We will elaborate on the main functionalities (features) and uncover the connections between them.
• We will design the architecture and define the development technologies.
• We will optimize the user interface interaction scheme (UX) to improve the user experience.
• We will assist in selecting devices for your project.
• We will define the minimum viable product (MVP).
• We will develop a product evolution roadmap (Roadmap).
• We will compile a list of the necessary specialists.
• We will estimate the cost and timeline for the entire project or MVP.
In the case of project initiation, this information will serve as the foundation for the technical specification.
Prototyping and Launch
The additional stage of the Discovery Phase allows you to visualize the product or changes in the product and conduct simplified hypothesis testing.
• We will showcase the potential capabilities and appearance of the product.
• We will shape the ideas for future presentation and sales to interested parties.
• We will conduct project planning and ensure readiness for launch.
• We will advise on how to test hypotheses, functionality, and interface usability in real-world conditions.
• We will explain how to gather and interpret user feedback.
The Discovery Phase can become the first step towards the digital transformation of enterprise IT infrastructure.
