We at Cloud Innovates focus on turning your capital expenditure into operating expenditure while reducing operational cost, speed up process time, and scale up the business together with your technology solutions. Journey to your business success is through our roadmap above where we use lean methodologies to identify business challenges, agile methodologies to deliver seamless user experience and digitize analog processes which typically runs on disconnected systems and spreadsheets, leaving people to struggle with silos of conflicting data and a lack of information at their fingertips.
WHAT IS LEAN?
A lean organization understands customer value and focuses its key processes to continuously increase it. The ultimate goal is to provide perfect value to the customer through a perfect value creation process that has zero waste. To accomplish this, lean thinking changes the focus of management from optimizing separate technologies, assets, and vertical departments to optimizing the flow of products and services through entire value streams that flow horizontally across technologies, assets, and departments to customers. Eliminating waste along entire value streams, instead of at isolated points, creates processes that need less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time to make products and services at far fewer costs and with much fewer defects, compared with traditional business systems. Companies are able to respond to changing customer desires with high variety, high quality, low cost, and with very fast throughput times. Also, information management becomes much simpler and more accurate. Another term for lean is Kaizen which means improvement in Japanese. Kaizen refers to activities that continuously improve all functions and involve all employees from the CEO to the assembly line workers. The Agile process is one of the Kaizen methods for the software development life cycle.
WHAT IS AGILE?
Agile is an incremental, iterative approach to project management and software development that helps teams deliver value to their customers faster and with fewer headaches. Instead of in-depth planning at the beginning of the project, Agile methodologies are open to changing requirements over time and encourages constant feedback from the end users. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. Welcome changing requirements, even late in the development life cycle for the customer's competitive advantage. Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months with a preference to the shorter timescale. Constantly engaging companies staff throughout the project. Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done. The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is a face-to-face conversation. Working software is the primary measure of progress. Promote sustainable development with good design practice and keeping solutions simple. At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly. Kanban is a popular framework used to implement agile software development. Kanban means Signboard or Billboard in Japanese. Kanban is a software development methodology inspired by Toyota’s “Just-in-time (JIT)” production system which helps to optimize their delivery. It is a continuous delivery of the work process from one stage to other which specifies a maximum number of items that can be simultaneously handled at each stage.
WHAT IS DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION?
It converts analog manual process to digital automation process. The go-to term covering anything from business fully operating on mobile to business process automation to utilizing artificial intelligence. It is only a stepping stone toward becoming a fully connected business which focuses on three areas which are Business Problems, People Experience, and Digital Innovation. SMEs that embrace the cloud as part of their digital transformation strategy is taking a necessary step to becoming a connected business. Embracing cloud technology can help alleviate struggles caused by analog processes such as siloed data and deskbound workflows. Hence, this allows them to automate their day to day operations giving them continuous deployment of their systems. Journey to the connected augmented world requires continuous improvement, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment.
