In April 2016 I was given the project of delivering a fully developed mission-critical system for a start-up business in the group of companies for which I act as CIO. The brief was to deliver a fully operational solution within 4 months. The project was particularly complex and the timelines therefore severely challenging. It was clear that traditional bespoke development, using standard industry tools, would not allow completion within the time-frame. Research quickly narrowed things down to Rapid Application Development methodologies and tools. Outsystems was identified as the RAD tool of choice and the Outsystems partner selected was JustSolve. Development commenced in mid-June, with the final “go-live” date set to be 17 October. The project required that the to-be developed Outsystems work-flow solution integrate with banking and switching solutions. The implication was that 3 separate companies and/or solution providers, that never worked together before, should integrate with each other, all within a very tight time-frame. The only part of the project that made things easier, was the fact that the client specification was done, completely thought through and thoroughly documented. The JustSolve team was professional throughout the project and the Agile processes we used were thought through and efficient. Client-provider interaction as well as provider-provider interaction and integration was well executed with surprisingly efficient alignment of project goals, interdependent deliverables and deadlines. In all of my years of delivering solutions, this project is a definite highlight. It was delivered on time and within budget. Our satisfaction with JustSolve as a strategic RAD-Partner, is evident in the fact that we engaged them for a significant number of additional projects.
