Requirements analysis for your new software system

Are you looking for a new software system for the support of a specific business process? Do your IT systems not satisfy the requirements anymore? Or are your users unhappy with the current systems? You know the need for a change and we know how to accomplish the change.

HELVETING ascertains and documents your company’s requirements in a structured way and supports you in specifying and conceptualising the right IT system for each intended use. We support every company, which uses IT as a central infrastructure for service provision and relies typically on standard products (hard- and software), as a methodology and technology partner. It is especially the case in the service sector, in which software systems (so called industry solutions or line-of-business applications) support or automate the industry specific business process respectively. Such solutions are often hosted and run off-site by an external partner in outsourcing mode and they are provided to the company by a network.

From the requirement analysis to the individual system

We consult you for instance in the following scenario: You have a current software system which does not cover anymore today’s requirements. The users are unhappy and the processes cannot be efficiently carried out.

HELVETING conducts a requirement analysis with your users and further stakeholders. As a result, the various requirements on the system and the business process will be gathered, analysed and prioritised. It is a matter of functional, operational and technical aspects:

  • What have I got to be able to do with the system?
  • Where and how does the system run? Who does it maintain?
  • How is the user support organised?
  • Which interfaces must be created?
  • How will a migration project be designed? etc.
