  • Data and migration strategies

Discovery, definition & design

Commencing a software project with SRA includes a definition or discovery stage inclusive of collaborative stakeholder and user workshops, requirements validation, goals, outcomes, risks, and success metrics agreed and documented. This gives the overall project teams a deep understanding of what is to be achieved, by who, when and how.

We then enter the design stage and create personas, user stories, journey maps, wireframes and UI/UX prototypes. In parallel, our technical leaders create detailed functional, non-functional, and technical designs including architecture, security, accessibility, and infrastructure requirements.

Construct, configure & test

To offer our clients a guaranteed project outcome, we operate under a proven and trusted methodology, including 5 mindset stages to ensure inclusiveness and collaboration:

  • Empathise – small design rounds per work package to ensure the team are aligned to the project goals and understand the end user and client outcomes to be achieved
  • Ideate – planning and designing future work packages then presenting to the team and clients prior to commencing, ensures we stay in line with project goals  
  • Create – based on shared knowledge from previous stages, our development or implementation teams build the components of the overall solution
  • Review – we test in smaller cycles each component in the construct stage ensure that any issues or incorrect assumptions are found and managed prior to client delivery  
  • Deliver – small demos to internal team members and clients during the construct stage allowing progress to be seen and any concerns to be raised as early as possible

Launch & release management 

The final verification of your required business functionality and correct technical functionality of the solution. We emulate real-world conditions on behalf of our client before partnering with acceptance teams to ensure the solution meets your requirements. Collaborative artefacts and processes are designed, including:

  • Test strategy
  • Test cases
  • Acceptance criteria
  • Entry and exit conditions
  • Manual and/or automated testing regimes
  • Load, security, usability and accessibility testing
  • Launch preparation and hyper-support
