Systems Analysis

Why a Systems Analysis?

Risk Reduction

Hiring a consultant is risky. We get that. You’ve probably heard stories of software consultants who came in to a project and then failed to deliver.

If you’re interested in hiring us but have been burned in the past, try the diagnostic report. It will give you a chance to see how we work and experience the value we provide.

If you decide not to continue with a development project, you’ll still have a hard copy guide to take to someone else.

Peace of Mind

You should hire the best developer for your project. Sometimes, that doesn’t include us.

This is why we are as objective and honest as possible in our report. We don’t work under the assumption that you’ll hire us afterwards, so we tell it like it is. If your software is great and doesn’t actually need much work, we’ll let you know. If it needs a lot of work, we’ll tell you how much, what kind of work, and why it’s needed in technical and business terminology.

Our goal is to give you the clearest path forward. After we complete the analysis, you’ll get a printed copy for your reference.

A Printed Guide that Makes You Look Good

Use the report as a playbook for your project.

You’ll learn:

  • what’s wrong
  • what’s right
  • what you need to buy
  • what skillset your developers need to fix the project
  • how long it will likely take

If you need extra copies, just let us know.

In our experience, companies like the diagnostic report because it lets them see what’s really going on with their project. In one of our case studies, a client discovered that their software wasn’t as scalable or well-written as they had thought. Some of the administrative tools weren’t present and the development that was done didn’t align with business needs. We believe in dealing honestly and telling the truth about the state of a system (even if it’s not in our best financial interests).

This 5-20 page printed report is one way we can provide that to clients.

Project Rescue / Custom Development

Why SlideWave?

Budget Peace of Mind

Hiring a consultant is risky. We get that. You’ve probably heard stories of software consultants who came in to a project and then failed to deliver.

We believe that hourly billing puts both parties at a moral standoff. Each party is incentivized to either reduce the hours worked or increase the hours worked. The focus is on man-hours and not on the quality of the project and the business objectives. Bad mojo, we say.

Instead, we run on a cost contained model that eliminates the need for you to struggle with budgeting every time something needs to be done. Subconsciously, we’ll work to find ways to do things better, which makes your software better. We’ll also have more time for other things, like product and code documentation and better sprint planning.

Risk Mitigation

We’ve helped multiple companies turn around their business thanks to the complex software projects we’ve developed for them.

Each SlideWave team member has worked on and led multiple software development projects from start to finish. You get the decades of experience that our agile team provides without the hassle of tiers of upper management and the obfuscation it entails.

Our project experience ranges from bootstrapped startups to multi-million dollar enterprises. It’s likely that we’ve worked in an environment of your size before.

We also hire for diversity to avoid the “hive mind”. Our developers and designers have seen a lot and they bring all of that experience to each and every project we touch.

You’ll get an entire development team for less than the cost of a single senior developer with twice as much accountability.

Agile Development

We hire the highest quality developers we can find, pay them well, and enable them to develop in an agile, team-based environment based on two-week sprints.

Why agile?

  • Everyone works together and plays a part. This means software is developed faster and better.
  • Every team member plays a role, so nothing gets left out.
  • The iterative nature of agile development means that benefits (often revenue-based) can be seen quicker.
  • Testing is integrated into the sprints, meaning that quality issues are caught earlier.
  • Agile development is less risky, because stakeholders (you) get to see progress every sprint.
  • The entire team is empowered and highly involved in the process from start to finish.
  • It’s a lot more fun than PM-heavy waterfall projects.

Bottom Line: Your investment is aligned with the value you’re going to get, not on the hours we put in or how many degrees our developers have. This lets us hire the best, most efficient, most qualified (and fun to work with) team members. Then we put them on a full stack agile development team that is going to build software that works well the first time around.

Just quality work done on time, objective answers given honestly, and project deadlines met consistently.
