5 Reasons to consider WIB as your Partner
WIB not only brings experience and highly skilled consultants to every engagement but also brings a suite of software solutions to your company:
Reason Number 1: We don't start from scratch
WIB has prebuilt framework solutions for many enterprise application scenarios. Depending on the specific requirements of your project, we can use the existing business processes, user interfaces and software modules as a foundation for your solution. We customize much of what you already have in place and provide you with new, unique solutions by leveraging our Rapid Composite toolset. Under circumstances where this is not an option, we use existing assets for rapid prototyping of the new application in order to clarify requirements as early as possible with your different stakeholders. The Rapid Composite Toolset consists of:
- Proven best practice business processes
- Best practice user interfaces
- Full functioning system out of the box
- Covers CRM, sales, logistics, manufacturing, finance, webshop and more…
Reason Number 2: Reduce the number of programmers needed
Based on our technology, we create an environment for our customers in which business users or IT analysts can create enterprise applications with little need for programmers or coding. This approach enables the business to quickly create an application that really fits its needs by using a simple point and click approach which is based on configuration and not coding applications. This approach produces some major advantages:
- User Interface (fields, labels, lists etc.) can be added or changed by configuration
- Activities in the backend systems can be automated by recording the screen activities
- No programming skills needed
- Database is automatically generated based on the business objects
These generated applications can directly be used in production environment since the generated code is already of the highest quality. In projects where requirements are still in flux, Rapid Composite allows you to generate application prototypes for the software that is being implemented. This application prototype can be created and changed quickly and easily, without writing lengthy requirements documents. It generates a tangible demo application where everyone can agree on what the final application will be. The prototype allows the user to automatically generate a traditional requirements documentation which contains all the relevant information like UI description, business logic, data flows, etc….
Reason Number 3: Quickly add new capabilities
WIB has developed a unique visual editor to define new business logic and functionality which can be implemented at impressive speeds. The approach is based on mathematical principals that ensure that the defined logic can be executed by the system. In conventional approaches like programming languages or model driven development tools, the correctness of the generated code must be validated by the programmer (hence the saying "garbage in, garbage out"). This is the reason why it is impossible for non-programmers to implement new logic into enterprise applications and must be completed by software engineers. With the WIB approach, anyone can implement new instructions for computer systems of the highest quality and with little fear of making technical mistakes.
Reason Number 4: Affordability
The WIB approach costs significantly less than conventional approaches which require large teams of software developers, technical architects, project managers, business analysts, etc... WIB also offers all projects on a fixed-price basis and our customers only pay if the promised solution really works. This pricing model also breaks the conflict of interests between the client and the consulting firm. In conventional payment models based on time and material, the consulting firm has limited, if any, incentives to implement the solution fast and with less effort then absolute necessary to keep a good relationship with the customer. At WIB, everything that we do is centered on our commitment to your success, from solution design to final implementation. We hire the best, commit to capture the most innovative solutions for your needs and follow through on our promises.
Reason Number 5: Speed and risk
With the WIB approach results can be generated within weeks rather than months or years as with conventional approaches. This increases the agility of the IT solution and therefore the agility of your business. Since instant feedback of the business stakeholders is generated at every stage of a WIB engagement, it is almost impossible that the whole project can move in the wrong direction without quickly being corrected. In conventional projects, feedback is normally not available until the user acceptance testing phase of the project which is usually the first time the user sees the new application. This leads to a very high risk of wasted effort and wasted company assets. The WIB approach enables our customers to adjust the project scope in time while giving your company flexibility to react on changes and external influencers of your business. This gives you a competitive advantage and the agility that you’ve been missing. WIB's approach is the fastest and least risky way to implement new IT solutions.
