Problems first, please – an approach to ideation

I often come across situations where the conversation begins with a solution. Interestingly, every discussion starts off by describing the situation in which the job on hand has come to a standstill because of an unanswered “how.” My questioning, then, often begins with the “why” behind the standstill, to understand how it all started – almost like watching a movie in rewind. This got me thinking – Are our solutions aligned with the core functional problem being solved? On introspecting more, I realized that every time a successful project was delivered, there was immense clarity about the core functional problem.

12 Indicators for adopting BI & DW solutions

The primary objective of any large enterprise is to make better business decisions to improve its ROI. Effective and prompt decision-making requires relevant information, which is derived from the vast data stored across various data sources.

Does Agile equal Chaos?

With agile projects becoming more popular than waterfall projects, we are increasingly associating agility in software development with buzzwords such as "welcome change,” flexibility, “shorter time-to-market,” “self-reliant teams,” “higher staff motivation,” and many more.

Digital Quality Assurance: How and Why?

In today’s technology-driven world, many enterprises are catching on to the wave of disruption. There are many drivers of this disruption. They could be about the changing technological environment, evolving business dynamics, increasingly intense competition, and suchlike. Disruption is a widespread concern for enterprises, as the technology competition is on the verge of disrupting business models. Polaroid Corporation is a classic example: A pioneer in digital imaging in the 1960s, the company did not make the necessary investments to hold that lead in the 1990s, when digital photography overtook film. On the same lines, printed newspapers, magazines, and letters stand increasingly marginalized in today’s digitized world. Although no one can predict the exact impact and extent of disruption in the next five years, a recent study found that companies facing disruption generally take longer to respond than they expect, despite having an effective response available with them. Consider the decade or more it has taken for Amazon to disrupt traditional retail meaningfully. Given this, enterprises must transform their ways of working and product development as technology is undergoing a major transformation.

Also, we looked into our building block to create long-lasting software quality and defined that each individual has the responsibility to form their own, as well as others' mindset. As everybody is equally responsible for generating and delivering as much quality as possible, today, we go a bit deeper into the associated roles and responsibilities.
