  10. 10.

  13. 13. How are we different?• While many of the contemporary software work online or on a cloud (usingservices like MS Sharepoint, virtualization etc), they are inherently desktopbased software and are not designed to be cloud centric. Data migrationprocesses etc are also very cumbersome as source code is simply notavailable for them (and no hope as well).• Our tools (Unleash) have been designed completely from a cloud centricpoint of view and offer superior performance and flexibility for customization(What would take several months to customize utilizing various tools wouldbe possible in weeks with our systems due to the inherent simplicity andcomplete focus on cloud based delivery).

  15. 15. Methodologies: Waterfall and Agile Waterfall is a very popular software development technique adopted in many organizations.

In addition, many organizations adhere to various CMM practices.
  16. 16. Methodologies: Waterfall and Agile Many organizations have project management systems in place already (PMIS) as a part of PMO. However, still many projects (75% of all projects) incur a cost escalation of 179% over initial budget (Standish Group). The traditional ERP systems are not able to deal with the simultaneous existence of multiple project management methodologies at the same time (some times within the same project).
