Even though waterfall still continues to be the dominant methodology adopted for ERP/ CRM implementation projects world-wide, Alletec has developed a Hybrid-Agile methodology that significantly enhances project predictability. Active engagement of the customer side team throughout the project (as mandated by Agile), finalization, testing and release of a meaningful set of user stories with every sprint, help keeping projects on track, and minimize chances of surprise.

  1. Competence on Microsoft Stack:

    The technology and product landscape have transformed dramatically in the last few years. Businesses need to go beyond the traditional borders of ERP & CRM, and use diverse technologies ranging from Analytics to AI. Products don’t work in isolation, or in a boxed on-prem environment.

The Project Manager/ Product Owner from your side will have to be dedicated to the project and must have the needed authority to make decisions.

  • Do the needed level of training on methodology and product for your team. Take the needed steps to ensure that they have a harmonious working relationship with the consultant team.
