  4. 4. page: 003 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Data Centric Development is a new methodology for developing websites and mobile applications, dramatically improving business performance, whilst saving clients time and up to 25% of costs compared to traditional methodologies. It is characterised by two main benefits; using data at the start of the development process to better understand user interaction is significantly more efficient than conventional UX research, allowing coding and testing to begin much earlier. Secondly, building analytics into the web or mobile platform empowers staff to constantly improve operational excellence based on solid data evidence over guesswork.

  6. 6. page: 005 TIME IS MONEY It is now widely accepted that UX research needs to be incorporated into any web or mobile build; however, conventional UX can add substantial time and expense to the project. “To a stakeholder, time is money,” Bo Amidor notes in his article on UX research. “Therefore, when user experience research must be conducted, slowing the process to launch or the process already existing, they see this as an added expense.” With Data Centric Development, existing data is utilised at the beginning of the UX phase, providing deeper insight than user research alone and shortening the length of this phase. The result is that the overall project time is reduced, making it more efficient and therefore less costly.

  9. 9. page: 008 ON THE RARE OCCASIONS INSIGHT IS SURFACED FROM THIRD PARTY TOOLS, THEY ARE DIFFICULT TO TRANSLATE INTO PERFORMANCE DRIVING ACTION Typically, analytics are an afterthought in the development process. Third party tools, usually retrofitted after development, are used largely to monitor site traffic, which harnesses only a fraction of a product’s data capability. The main issue is that of usability. Third-party tools are generally excellent at capturing data but their standardised reporting functionality makes it difficult for most users to extract meaningful and relevant insight from their data. This means that important, business-critical changes aren’t implemented with the kind of immediacy that drives continuous performance, instead being held back for the typical three-year build cycle. It is almost impossible for these kinds of off-the-peg tools to enable users to adapt to the complex issues, rapidly changing circumstances and business strategies.

  12. 12. page: 011 The data revolution has begun. It’s predicted that data production will be 44 times greater in 2020 than it was in 2009. The companies that adapt quickest to the opportunities data offers will thrive and outperform their competitors. The first step on a company’s data journey is to rethink traditional ways of working. In the new world of lean enterprise development, innovative and disruptive companies are constantly improving the user experience across their digital channels, following up on an initial build with small, data-driven iterations. That’s where Data Centric Development (DCD) comes in. This new methodology accelerates the UX process. Rather than relying solely on user research, journey mapping, wireframing and prototyping, DCD also utilises data captured from existing sites, tools and research to test and prove hypotheses about a new platform’s requirements. This is more accurate than conventional research techniques alone and saves time and money, enabling coding and testing to begin sooner in the development cycle. Secondly, Data Centric Development uses client KPIs to define what analytics are required and incorporates them into the site or mobile application seamlessly. Bespoke dashboards surface the business-relevant insight the decision makers need quicker, in an engaging way and enabling better decision-making based on genuine insight. This in turn informs constant iterations to improve overall performance.
  13. 13. page: 012 FIVE QUESTIONS TO ASK A DEVELOPMENT AGENCY
  14. 14. page: 013 How will you leverage my existing data to improve and shorten the development cycle? ONE How will you use my existing data to build a better product? TWO How will the new platform help me to capture data and use this to drive continuous improvement? THREE How will you enable me to carry out testing within the platform using my data to improve the product? FOUR What pre-built modules and tools do you deploy that will help shorten the development cycle? FIVE This enhanced way of working means you should be asking more of your agencies. Here’s our recommendation on the top five additional questions to ask any prospective supplier:
