Project Initiation

Our project lead will meet with you to better understand your problem and your vision. Together we will outline the project’s requirements and perhaps help you see the solution from a different angle.

Design & Planning

With a clear understanding we can begin to plan and design the solution. We will create a project plan with regular milestones and interactive prototypes to keep you in the loop at every stage.

Development

Development of the solution begins. Our experienced and versatile teams can adhere to various development methodologies, such as Agile, Rapid or Waterfall. Regular stakeholder meetings are sure to keep you involved and the project on track.

Quality Assurance

Our development team will then pass the application into the hands of our dedicated quality assurance team. Any defects will be tracked and fixed, ready for the user acceptance testing. During this phase, you can let us know if any enhancements are required.

Delivery & Training

Development of the solution has been completed and the roll-out programme has begun. We will provide you with the agreed level of training, user guidance and documentation required for successful implementation. Education ranges from face-to-face workshops, to step-by-step walk-through videos available via an online learning management system.

Support & Maintenance

But it doesn’t stop there. We can support and maintain your solution so that you don’t need to worry about down-time. If the systems you rely on are off-line, so is your business.

Pre-development

At the very beginning we discover the project scope and goals, gather requirements, analyse and validate to deliver complete documentation and prepare a project plan. Prior to project kick-off, we offer consultation to best implement the most suited technology stack and system architecture.

Development

With our development expertise, software architecture competences and a wealth of technical knowledge, our services include application testing, integration with the existing environment, and application deployment.

Post-development

To guarantee stability after the solution’s deployment, we offer maintenance and support services. Support can be agreed for applications developed by Alver Services or by any third-party vendors. Application upgrades and improvements, performance monitoring and security audits, operating system and server migrations can all be catered for.

Disaster recovery planning & operations

Be prepared. Our Disaster Recovery Plans will capture, in a single repository, all of the information that you need to recover in the unfortunate event that the business cannot operate as normal.

Disasters can be caused by man or nature and may result in an organisation not being able to perform for a period of time due to lack of data and/or infrastructure.

Obviously in the event of a disaster, the priority is to prevent the loss of life. But you should also have a plan to save the life of your business. We hope you never have to use it but the peace of mind it provides knowing you are prepared is invaluable.

Business intelligence: Data warehousing and reporting

BI answers the question: Why did it happen and what do we need to do about it in future?

BI takes reporting further and converts the base data into meaningful information specific to your needs.

Convert your base data into meaningful, useful information. Business intelligence is the use of custom algorithms to collect and interrogate data from multiple systems to help identify trends, predictive views of operations, generate dashboards and/or score cards giving your business the information it needs to make accurate and meaningful decisions.

Reporting

Reports provide information on: What happened and what status is it now?

Reporting on base data is fairly straight forward, generating a report on how many items have been processed in a day is a matter of fact figure queried directly from your system. Many businesses have these types of reports they use as KPIs.

Easily access your business’s vital information. Reports can be designed in a graphic or tabular form and prepared on ad hoc, periodic, recurring, regular or on an as-required basis. Many businesses simply report on base data, such as how many items have been processed in a day or last month’s revenue. These figures are often considered to be key performance indicators (KPI’s).

Data warehousing

A data warehouse is a relational database stored on a central server or in the cloud. Its aim is to provide the information to make informed decisions about the business.

It takes information from multiple areas of the business, normally separate systems, process the data via a staging process that cleans and orders the data ready for use.

Data analysis tools then access this data to perform reporting and business intelligence functions.

Business analysis

We can’t tell you if you’re in the right business, but we can help you document your processes and provide you with the opportunity to identify cost saving, streamlining, process improvements and operational risk reductions.

Process analysis can evaluate how well your processes align with, and support your primary business function. In most cases, this is overlooked.
