What we focus on?

Understanding your needs

Along with project management, business analysis is one of the most essential roles in a project. It enables us to understand the company’s business needs, document them with the use of dedicated tools and make them comprehensive for developers engaged in a project. By a proper analysis, we’re able to specify the requirements, manage changes and reprioritize the internal processes.

Problem-oriented operations

Business analysis estimates if a suggested operation is capable of building up to organisational benefits by: identifying and cataloging company’s business needs, processes and potential technical or legal requirements, as well as discovering integrations and establishing a list of stakeholders, e.g. by employing user stories. Unfortunately, change can come with a negative impact, too. Analysis helps reduce it, making the results more stable and predictable.

Individual approach

Every project is subject to individual analysis, however we generally follow an agile approach. We start the process with thorough problems, needs, and goals diagnosis, discussing them in-depthly with our clients. We determine the accurateness of solutions, arrange the processes, gather the general requirements, and acquire knowledge about the technical issues. Next, we expand upon the collected set of information, we document them, and create a backlog, being an analytical support and  creating a basis for the project’s development.
