Intranet Application Development Strategy
Recruit, train or outsource
Australia is currently experiencing a high demand for Sharepoint developers, especially in the 2010 camp. This is mainly due to the rapid deployment of this powerful platform over the last 3 years. With such a drought of Sharepoint developers, organisations are turning to skills training. As ever though, this takes time, coupled with experience with the product.
Outsourcing is the clear answer, at least for the short term. But it's important to ensure that the team you employ understands more than just Sharepoint. They'll need to integrate Sharepoint with your other enterprise applications, so be conversant with other development technologies.
How the Service Works
The first imperative is to ensure that you, the client, own the full development of the application. As such you nominate a key business decision maker as Product Owner. We can provide training in their particular role and responsibilities, but it is important that they have the decision making authority in the business. The Product Owner also needs to have a comprehensive understanding of business workflow, organisational interdependencies, and IT standards (e.g. Document Management and Naming Conventions)
They will work closely with the Solution Development Team throughout the project to manage priorities and ensure that the Sharepoint applications and services, meet business objectives.
Solution Development Team
The team can be wholly Readify consultants, or jointly resourced with developers from your organisation. We find that many clients engage our Solution Development Service and assign their developers to the team which allows them to gain experience in developing on SharePoint for later internal projects.
With the Product Owner, and Solution Development Team roles assigned, the team will determine all of the features to develop for the application. These are developed as User Stories, estimated by the team as a whole, and prioritised by the Product Owner in a Product Backlog. It is this backlog that drives activities for the rest of the development.
The Build Master then configures the development environment in our cloud based architecture. This typically takes very little time, and we have processes in place to ensure that configurations are backed up for easy replication.
The Sharepoint Solution Development Team typically works to 10 day sprints or iterations. They perform daily builds, and deliver working features, from the prioritised backlog at the end of every sprint. This gives our clients confidence that the project is on track, ensures that there is a working application at every milestone, and allows for course corrections should priorities change for any reason.
Sprints aren't constrained to 10 days, they can be as short as 5 days, and some clients extend them to 4 weeks. In our experience a 10 day sprint is long enough to deliver real value, and frequent enough to stay on track without major revision work.
The Readify Solution Development Service allows clients to fix project scope, with a variable duration; or fix duration with a variable project scope (i.e. features delivered). This ensures Readify can achieve your goals whatever your business imperative, whether this be application feature set, or time to market.
When you engage the Solution Development Service, as well as the
team on-site, you benefit from the full resources of Readify at
your disposal, including: Access to specialist consultants, our
hosted development infrastructure, best practice ALM processes and
tooling, and deep relationships with specialist partners.
There is quite simply, no more effective way to develop a high quality SharePoint application in Australia today.
