Discover

It all starts with gaining a deep understanding of your business by asking the detailed questions.

Enabling your business model with technology may require engaging a firm that can assist you with analysis of your unique needs and deliver the entire solution.  Since TDK’s founding, our Project Solutions Practice has assisted a large portfolio of clients in a variety of businesses with detailed, collaborative discovery so that the best solution alternatives can be evaluated for maximum return on technology investment.

It starts with gaining a deep understanding of your business by asking the detailed questions that are necessary to make sure that your customer's experience, your internal processes and systems, as well as potential risks and additional opportunities are identified.  Specific objectives and inputs are captured to address the problem or pain point that the technology solution is to eliminate.  TDK’s project engagement managers and solutions architects are experienced in planning and facilitating effective discovery in a variety of organizations, business models and processes.

The foundation of successful technology delivery is based on making informed decisions that make sense for your business. TDK’s Project Solutions Practice is staffed with a broad base of business, technology and project engagement management expertise to efficiently complete a discovery process that will enable us to advise and collaborate with you on making those informed technology investment decisions.

 

Strategize

TDK works collaboratively but deliberately to determine the best alternatives so that your objectives can be delivered in a timely manner.

Discovery analysis will yield multiple potential approaches to meeting your needs.  There are rarely any cookie-cutter solutions, but the good news is there are usually multiple options to getting your technology need met.  TDK's Project Solutions Practice utilizes a collaborative approach, drawing upon the diversity of our team, to review discovery inputs, analyze alternatives and design recommended strategies for delivery of a solution to your needs. 

Depending upon your specific needs, TDK will draw upon our experienced analysts, UX designers, architects, senior software engineers, project leadership talent and management team to turn your discovery investment into an execution strategy that will deliver the best solution to your needs.  Your business process or product development strategy will also be an important factor in evaluating the best near-term and strategic approach.  The desired user experience that you require is identified and captured through iterative design methods so that the solution engages and activates your customers or users.  TDK works collaboratively but deliberately to determine the best alternatives so that your objectives can be delivered in a timely manner. 

TDK will evaluate and recommend the best technologies for your needs, as well as the delivery execution approach that will optimize time to delivery, costs and risks, while capturing opportunities to delivering the highest quality software solution for you and your customers or users. TDK primarily delivers through iterative and agile methodologies that yield usable deliverables at the end of each iteration cycle.   We also have experience with highly specified systems development projects where a highly structured waterfall methodology is important due to the governance required for the project.  Hybrid engagement models have often been the best course of delivery to capture your specific user and business needs while moving to an agile methodology to build the software solution.  Our project leadership experts are certified in both Project Management Institute and Agile (Scrum) Methodologies.

Deliver

Each engagement with our customers is unique; TDK ensures that your final product is tailored for your business needs.

Building the best solution requires effective communication, monitoring and control mechanisms throughout the build and delivery phase of the project.  Each engagement with our customers is unique; however, regular and timely communication with you, your stakeholders and across the delivery team is critical. These are defined and reviewed with the entire project team at the initiation of the delivery phase.

Effective and timely elaboration of your use cases and user stories are important to make sure that the right components and features are being built in the right order of priority.  Iterative deliverable review of your project is very effective in having you participate and see the solution being built so that timely and regular feedback is incorporated through the delivery phase.  This allows TDK to make sure we meet or exceed your expectations and, more importantly, build the highest quality solution for you and your customers or users. Retrospective input is also captured prior to each phase or cycle of development so that the speed and quality improves over the build phase of your project.

Our software development leadership experts ensure that quality technical practices are implemented by the development teams. Solution testing methods are implemented to support delivery of a solution that performs and scales as well as meet your feature set requirements and the strongest possible user experience.

Put TDK’s Project Solutions Practice to work to deliver the best technology solution to fit your unique business needs.
