As soon as we can start working on a new project, this means the start of intensive cooperation between the customer and De Nieuwe Zaak. Each role has its added value in the process and facilitates or blocks with its contribution that efficiency decreases or increases.
The optimum collaboration
Nothing is as frustrating as seeing an opportunity (feature) and then having to wait months before this new feature is available to the consumer. Because of this frustration, but yes, also from efficiency, it is essential to make this lead time as short as possible. Good cooperation between the customer and the supplier is required, and a lot can be gained there. Various roles are invested in ensuring that we are working on the right things (Product owner), that we understand the business well (Business analyst), that quality work is delivered (Development and Test) and that we can deliver on time (Project management, Scrum master, DevOps).
An ad-hoc approach, vague objectives, and limited prioritization are risks for disrupting the planning and development process. Commitment to a method and the appointment of clear expectations and responsibilities oil the machine. A machine from which the necessary deliveries are made in a solid rhythm. Automated, that is.
Release & Test Automation
The time that engineers change something in the code and then immediately “upload” has been behind us for a long time. The interests and risks are too great to continue to use that approach, and since then, significant steps have been made in automating the release processes, for example.
The automation contributes to the reliability and independence of the release process. The further the automation is carried out, the easier it becomes for a repeatable process, and it takes less lead time. The step that is also made in this is to add quality controls. These checks guarantee the quality of the delivered release and thus ensure that your customers can continue to order.
Process optimization & automation
In short: process optimization and automation have a major influence on the efficiency and speed of delivery. These two facets ensure the fundamental performance and agility of your team and web store. Do you need to switch quickly with experts while building or optimizing your webshop?
