Our Process

Savantis has created a Simple Solutions Methodology (A variant to SAP’s Activate) that provides an agile methodology replacing the Blueprint process and creating a more dynamic interaction with the key users and stakeholders which includes the 4 distinct phases each culminating in a Playback.

The first phase is the Discovery, where we validate the system in the Knox environment. The Discover phase, lasting 4 weeks, ensures that both parties are comfortable with the scope and solution before moving into the full-blown project. The key Playbacks are thus:


Discovery – 4 weeks

During this phase, we create a sandbox of the solution, confirming the understanding. The thing about software is that it is abstract in nature and while we are careful to understand the requirements, there is always the problem of understanding the meaning of the words. This phase ends in Playback 1: A walk through of all the functionality by a Savant. Since no integration is yet done, the integration is simulated, data is very limited and only standard functionality is displayed. The target group is the business leads at Knox

Discovery–4-weeks1
Build-8-weeks-1

Build – 8 weeks

The integration is built; the configuration is updated and enhancements completed. Some knowledge transfer occurs in this phase too. This end in Playback 2: A walk through by both a Savant and a Knox person, showing test data in systems. We recommend including some executives in this presentation at least for part of the presentation.

Test – 4 Weeks

The system is loaded with data; several tests and corrections are done.

Playback 3: This is a full walk through by Knox of all the functionality through all the “happy paths” to ensure that all the business leads and executives are on-board with the project. The emphasis will be on reporting.

Test-4-Weeks-1
UAT-4-Weeks-1

UAT – 4 Weeks

The User acceptance testing is done through all the scenarios ending in Playback 4: the system is fully ready for go-live and the final decision is made.

Hyper-care – 4 weeks

we ensure that Knox is cared for and that the system is behaving, Knox’s questions, issues and so on are resolved.
