  • Changing the IT Equations! November 2012
  • The gap between business and IT“There is a gap developing between the business users of enterpriseapplications and the IT professionals who are charged withproviding these applications.” Gartner, Inc., How to Use Pace Layering to Develop a Modern Application Strategy, Jim Shepherd et al, December 8, 2010. Business IT Goals Demand Speed Efficiency Immediately respond to new Reduce development and business needs maintenance costs Agility Quality standards Ability to adapt to new situations Architectural, robustness, scalability, and continually evolve compliance with internal IT policies
  • Applications at different paces Involvement of Corporate applications can be Make or Development Approach to end user in divided in 3 levels or “pace layers” Buy time development development Applications of make from a few day agile, with short high to 3 months cycles «innovation»«we want a completely newapplication, that nobody else has» Applications of make/buy from 3 to 6 agile, with long medium months cycles «differentiation»«we want a classic application, butworking in a different way» Consolidated buy 6 months rigid top-down low minimum Applications«we easily accept to use applicationsalready available in the market» View slide

  • An evolutionary development cycleThe business user is directly involved in a virtuousdevelopment cycle based on evolutionary prototyping Requirements Analysis Solution Results Modeling Validation Application Generation
  • Tangible benefitsProductivity Quality Up to 3x increase Generated code free of random Productivity index > 6 FP/workday errors Rigorous method: clear divisionAgility of roles, “mandatory” reuse Applications always aligned to Standard … architecture, business needs deployment, security, execution Immediate departure even with environment undefined requirements Open generated code, no Evolutionary approach, converging proprietary components towards the desired solution MaintainabilityUser Acceptance Easy knowledge sharing Client/user involved in the development process Functional know-how, separate from code Frequent verification/validation check-up “Painless” delivery phase Satisfaction and positive climate Maintenance interventions managed automatically
  • What can you build with WebRatio? Web Content Management Customer Knowledge Relationship Support Management Business Supply Chain Intelligence Management Enterprise Financial Resource Services Planning
  • Customer satisfaction The use of WebRatio has reduced project risks. Besides the quality of the software being guaranteed, we could focus on the features. Our users had time to think concretely about evolving needs and to better define the requirements and modify them, getting a quick response.Paolo Manzoni In ten years we have never delivered a project late for causesICT Director attributable to the development of software: even in cases whereA2A the requirements were not clearly defined, thanks to the rapid prototyping the client can immediately understand if the chosen path is the right one and therefore avoid unnecessary loss of time. Emanuele Tosetti IT Manager Acer We used to spend 40k€ on the annual maintenance of our old MKT Department system while our entire new application cost 38k€. It paid for itself! WebRatio brought our payback period to 0. WebRatio is simple to use. It allows one to focus on the analysisClaudio Abad and generate multiplatform and multilingual applications;IT Manager everything happens very quickly and favors the standardization ofSi Collection developmental processes and knowledge sharing. Alberto Ronchetti Software Development Area Director Atena Informatica
