Agile approach to business process automation

In times of digital transformation, new technological solutions for businesses must be delivered “either quickly or not at all”. Therefore, companies increasingly expect their IT teams not only to ensure the continued operation of the organization’s core IT infrastructure, but also to be able to quickly build, develop and – where necessary – modify those business applications that allow the company to stand out in the market, maintain its competitive edge and truly embrace innovation.

 

 

With such business expectations, IT teams need to take a whole new approach. The waterfall method is definitely a thing of the past now – it’s a cascade model of software development, where all the work on a project is planned in advance, and you can move to the next step only after the previous one is completed. That’s not how modern business works. If IT departments really want to support their companies in implementing their strategy, they need to figure out how to deliver IT solutions for businesses based on agile methods. Agility means that the project team focuses on such elements as flexibility, transparency and iterative work.

IT tools for businesses must be developed in a flash, with a continuous feedback loop between the business needs, the company’s expectations and the application development. An iterative approach focused on the regular delivery of smaller parts of the end product, combined with the DevSecOps paradigm and the use of modern solutions, such as low code platforms, makes it possible to keep control of assumptions and introduce modifications at any stage of the project. As a result, a ready-made product is delivered within weeks, instead of months.

This agile approach to innovation based on “either quickly or not at all” rule is also fostered by the rapid growth of tools such as Rapid Prototyping and Failure-as-a-Service (FaaS). As business units come up with dozens of ideas on how to streamline their company’s operation every day, these methods allow IT teams to create an environment where you can develop applications in a flash, test them safely and verify their suitability for developing modern businesses at low cost.

ECR Management

An engineering change request (ECR) to alter a product design can be triggered by various sources: audits, enhancement ideas, customer complaints, etc. A fix to a product design can be issued by any employee and the ultimate goal is quality improvement, which can directly influence revenue. By automating the Engineering Change Management (ECM) process, you can bring better products to market faster. Forget missing deadlines, loosing documents, flawed decision-making due to poor visibility of the process, duplicating change requests. Instead, with a dedicated application, gain an overview of the changes that are underway, boost productivity, lower the process costs, eliminate bottlenecks and gather all information related to the ECRs in one place.

A well-managed product lifecycle process allows to bring better products to market faster. With WEBCON BPS, you can provide an enterprise-wide solution that will streamline product development process, improve collaboration between departments, and provide seamless access to all product-related data.
