Coherent’s model delivers superior results because it uses its industry leading delivery management to create strong integration between its teams and the client’s organization. The following diagram illustrates the company’s base project framework.
The goal of this phase is to select the project based on the value that it will bring to the company. During this phase a list of potential projects is identified, high level requirements are gathered and business priorities are assigned for each of the projects. Each of the potential projects is analyzed to ensure that it is aligned with overall business strategy and the capital expenditure on the project is justified by the value it brings to the company.
Requirements and Architecture
The goal of this phase is to define high level requirements and architect how the system will be built based on best practices and client’s technology preferences. These activities guide product strategy and provide an initial context that stakeholders and the development team can use to understand requirement realization. In addition, Coherent works during this phase to create a set of plans that will be used as a baseline to control how the system will be developed, tested, and released. These plans focus on strategic planning considerations such as priorities, dependencies, schedule, and budget that will serve as a framework to guide detailed planning throughout the remainder of the project.
During this phase the system is iteratively built out through a set of development cycles that involve requirements elaboration, detailed design, collaborative development, testing, bug fixing, and deployment of a functioning system to testing environments where stakeholders can monitor progress and provide feedback. Coherent’s process allows flexibility to refine requirements and business direction by providing visibility to the product and progress throughout the project.
Acceptance & Deployment
This phase is designed to conduct formal acceptance of the system; to perform final mitigation steps related to system implementation; and to finalize all essential documentation.
Maintenance & Enhancement
This phase includes ongoing activities related to supporting and maintaining the system after implementation.
