Salesforce Development | Project Management Methodology - Manras

Development Methodology

The life cycle of a software development project is very complex and non-linear. Additionally, developing, testing, and deploying this software on cloud transforms things from complex to confusing and, at times, incomprehensible.

The traditional approach involves the creation of a design document that details the system/product, its new features, and the corresponding prices of the resources. This document then gets approved by the client before any implementation. Any change requires following the review/approval process again. While this approach works well for most engagement models, it isn’t so in the case of Salesforce projects. Why?

Salesforce’s major selling points for a business has been its flexibility and ease of customization and configuration. Every company has its own unique needs that evolve rapidly. Salesforce has been known to adapt to these changing requirements well. In other words, Salesforce is “agile.”

Manras uses the Application Implementation Method (AIM) along with its Project Management Methodology to deliver the best services to its customers. AIM comprises a series of iterative steps across the different phases of the implementation life cycle. The predefined process workflows and software templates help accelerate this implementation process. This structured and well-planned implementation leads to smooth migration and integration, fewer interruptions, reduced user stress, and faster ROI.
