The Stream Process™ from OneSpring is a revolutionary new process for defining software applications - web sites, mobile, enterprise software, intranets and so much more.

Stream is a methodology that offers companies a collaborative and highly-visual approach to creating superior products and solutions in less time, with reduced project re-work.

Think of it as a better way to translate what the business (marketing, product management, etc.) wants into something the development team can build.

This helps companies dramatically improve productivity, quality and customer satisfaction. Learn more at www.onespring.net or contact us at sales@onespring.net.

  • The Stream methodology is focused on the process of defining software and web-based applications, rather than the development aspects. Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) methods place an emphasis on the “how” in order to build the application.Stream’s focus is to help companies determine the “what” and “why” aspects quickly and efficiently, to ensure the right solution is what ends up being built.

The Stream Process™ for Defining Projects The Stream Process™ for Defining Projects Presentation Transcript

  • The Stream Process™ Project Requirements Visualization & Definition Note: This document is only a small portion of Stream. If you would like to learn more, please contact us at Sales@OneSpring.net
  • A Universal Problem Current methods for defining software & web-based projects just donʼt work! 66% of projects fail, run late, or are over budget. 53% of projects will incur cost increases of 189% of the original estimates. - Standish Group 70% of REWORK is attributed to correcting requirements errors. - META Group 30% of project costs are REWORK. - Forrester Research 2 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC.

  • The Root Causes The underlying problems are distilled into three main causes: Misunderstood product requirements due to ambiguity of written specifications. Lack of sufficient information to support complex applications/systems. Inability to “test drive” a product design with customers and stakeholders before development. 3 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC. All Rights Reserved.
  • The Cost to Fix An error found during the coding process typically costs 10 times more to fix than one found and fixed at the requirements development stage. – Boehm (Software Engineering Economics) ~100x ~50x = OneSpringʼs involvement ~20x ~10x ~5x ~1x Requirements Design Coding Dev Test Acceptance Live Test 4 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC.

  • An Improved Approach After years of experience, weʼve learned a better way… Our Approach Benefits Eliminate confusion with a detailed • Reduce requirements cycle time • Eliminate project rework Visualization …before coding. • Better collaboration Rapidly iterate and share your requirements & design early and often • Drive innovation with stakeholders. • Reduce outsourcing risk Test and validate with consumers. • Improve adoption • Create desirable products 5 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC.

  • The Stream Process™ We call this approach the Stream Process™. The Stream Process™ is a methodology that offers companies a collaborative and highly- visual approach to creating superior products and solutions in less time, with reduced project re-work. This helps companies dramatically improve productivity, quality and customer Stream is the process that satisfaction. combines the right people and the right tools to define the right application. 6 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC.

  • The Key Ingredients The essential aspects of the Stream Process™ are comprised of practices that are highly successful in business today. They include: • Small Collaborative Teams • Rapid Iterative Design Process • Adaptive Planning • Visualization Combined with the right Experience… you have the Stream Process™. 7 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC. All Rights Reserved.
  • The Proven Process The heart of the Stream Process™ is made up of three areas: - Insight - Clarity - Focus Each of these areas are performed as part of a Realization Cycle. The output of a Realization Cycle is the Definition. Each time a full Realization Cycle is performed, an evolutionary iteration of the solution is achieved. 13 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC. All Rights Reserved.
  • The Realization Cycle Typically a Realization Cycle is completed over a 1 week period. Depending on the project size and complexity, a Realization Cycle may extend to 2 weeks in length, but no more. The combined “work product” of the Realization Cycle is the Definition. 14 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC. All Rights Reserved.
  • Definition The Definition area is the culmination of the Insight, Clarity and Focus areas as represented by the visualization model. With each successive rapid design iteration, or Realization Cycle, the Definition of the engagement becomes increasingly mature. 15 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC. All Rights Reserved.
  • Definition Once the Definition has reached a maturity level where all stakeholders share a common and thorough understanding of the engagement, the Definition area is complete. This serves as the final “blueprint” for the engagement. 16 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC. All Rights Reserved.
  • Phenomenal Results The Stream Process™ can provide both quantifiable and qualitative results in productivity, quality and customer satisfaction. • Reduced project re-work • 45% + reduction in defects • Faster time-to market • Cut project timelines by 1/3 or more • Improved quality & customer satisfaction • Innovation & customer experience 12 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC. All Rights Reserved.
  • The Perfect Alchemy The Stream Process™ is the catalyst that brings together the right people, a proven process and superior tools in an innovative way to create phenomenal results. 13 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC. All Rights Reserved.
  • Superior Tools A key ingredient to the Stream Process™ is the use of a collaborative visualization platform. This platform allows the team to rapidly visualize the application and solicit real- time feedback from stakeholders without the need of programming. The visualization platform of choice for OneSpring is iRise. 14 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC. All Rights Reserved.
  • iRise iRise is the leading application simulator on the market today. iRise is used for the visualization modeling and requirements capture aspects within the Stream based project. iRise provides the benefit of creating a highly realistic software or web-based application simulation without the need for programming. OneSpring is a Strategic Partner with iRise. 15 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC. All Rights Reserved.
  • iRise Experience Highlights: • iRise Strategic Partner • Partner of the Year 2007 • Full system integrator • Over 100 simulations produced • Overseeing Federal Professional Services for iRise • Over 8 iRise experts within OneSpring • Full training curriculum (On-Site and Virtual) 16 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC.

  • Center of Excellence The culmination of the three paths lead to the creation of Stream Process Centers of Excellence™ for your organization. A Center of Excellence certification is awarded to organizations that have repeatable success results over a 6 month sustained period. Organizations must have achieved the following: • Reduced project re-work of 50% or greater • Reduced project timelines of 33% or greater • Improved customer satisfaction of 50% or more • 3 or more Stream Master & Mentor Certified team members 17 www.onespring.net © 2009 OneSpring LLC.
