Our approach to design is Agile

CALUMO has developed an agile project management methodology for robust yet rapid implementation of BI Reporting, Planning, and Forecasting solutions.With over 16 years’ experience in successful solution design and deployment, the agile CALUMO project management methodology is grounded in the PRINCE2 risk management framework with applied iterative AGILE techniques and tailored to Rapid implementing of BI reporting, planning, and forecasting solutions.

Delivery of the project involves establishing the initial vision then moving through an iterative agile development process to expose results of tailoring to business users as soon as possible to obtain feedback, clarify objectives and tune the initial vision.One rotation through this process can be as short as 5 minutes or as long as a few days. In a typical implementation, the opportunity exists to review the developing application at almost any time without disturbing the ongoing tailoring process.

Our Delivery Methodology is Agile

The diagram on the right provides an overview of CALUMO’s approach to Project delivery through the key project phases of Inception, Tailoring and Integration.

Delivery of the project involves establishing the initial vision then moving through an iterative spiral development process, to expose the results of tailoring to the business users as soon as possible in order to obtain feedback, clarify objectives and tune the initial vision.

Once this process is complete, the resulting application is integrated into the external control and process environment. This includes the processes that surround the application and ensure both integrity and longevity. Processes may be task oriented workflows (e.g. the actual budget and forecast processes, or regular data collection exercises) and/or environmental (e.g. security, change control, or documentation).
