Codel Services Templates: "Structured Analysis made Easy"

The problem

As well of the deployment of code, most IT deliverables necessitate the need for documentation. Such documentation included the defining a project scope, defining process reengineering, formalising acceptance, gathering requirements or setting out a test plan.

Having some standard of documentation, rather than making one up, is essential to meet these deliverables. Not only does it make their delivery more efficient, with the advent of SOX, there are compelling legislative reasons for doing so.

Nowadays there are many sources for getting such off-the shelf documents, and often these are bundled with a Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) tool or package (such as RUP).

However, even in such cases, Codel Services experience with industry has identified the following areas where the standards of this documentation are consistently found to be poor even with an SDLC in place.  

The solution

Consequently it is in these areas we feel that any SDLC you may have could be enhanced by our services:

bulletExplaining the project vision during initiation
bulletBusiness requirements gathering
bulletFunctional speciation
bulletAll forms of Business Process Reengineering documentation
bulletTest planning
bulletTest scripting

One of Codel Service’s key service offerings is providing delivery templates to cover the above areas.

The benefits

The advantages of using our templates, rather than building your own are:

bulletSaves time – allows you to focus on the delivery, rather than the means of delivery or the policy behind them
bulletHigh quality – we have considerable experience in knowing how best to present these deliverables
bulletSOX complaint – allows you not to worry about SOX for these deliverables
bulletFormal documentation – enforce standards and best practices, and ensures consistency across your deliverables
bulletPractical – these have been refined and developed over many years and through practical and real usage
bulletFlexible and Agile – can be used with any methodology you may have, from RUP to Agile to Prince 2 to none
bulletRight sized - has just the core, mandatory information to satisfy the above requirements
bulletImpartial – these templates are build from experience what is deficient in the industry, rather than by any set agenda or company “politics”
