Capture

Before you buy a car, you test drive it. You want to get a feel for the experience of driving the car. Is it smooth and practical? How does it react on sharp turns? Are all the features conducive to your needs?

The advantages of Software Visualization

We give your team – and your customers – a chance to see and experience your software, well before anything is coded. It’s like taking a test drive of your software months or even years before it’s built. We supply you with all of the aspects missing in the traditional approach to software development: clarity, insight, efficiency, and most of all, peace of mind, because you can be sure you “got it right” when you use OneSpring’s innovative methods and people in the requirements industry.


Previsualization – Secure Your Vision

Gaining clarity on the vision for your project is the number one goal for every software development project. You need to understand what it is you’re building before you can even start to define it. But how do you discover what it is you and your stakeholders are trying to build? There is an industry that has already mastered this – The Motion Picture Industry.

Previsualization for the Software Industry

OneSpring has brought previsualization to the software industry. Previsualization is a collaborative process that generates preliminary versions of application features, functionality and process flows in a low-resolution format. It enables the project stakeholders to more effectively communicate a shared vision and understanding of a project through visual exploration. We conduct a JAM Session®, to help you make important decisions and explore a variety of solutions that would otherwise be too costly and take too much time to consider.

Visualization

Traditional methods of software development leave many projects with rework and expense. In fact, 70% of project rework is attributed to requirements errors* and 53% of projects will incur cost increases of 189% of the original estimates**.

Medium Fidelity Visualization

Ambiguity, lack of sufficient information and the inability to experience a potential software application are to blame. That is no way to produce software.

Visualization overcomes the clarity gap because stakeholders see and experience software early in the software development lifecycle (SDLC), getting everyone on the same page. Visualization is similar to prototyping but with key differences:

Differences Between Visualization and Prototyping
Visualization Prototyping
Software visualization occurs during the requirements process. Prototyping typically occurs late in the software development cycle, long after requirements have been signed off and when it’s too late to change requirements.
Visualization does not require development resources. Prototyping relies on the services of specialists who code the prototype—even though their code may not be reusable.
Reduces rework by 80% or more Rework is an acknowledged hazard that requires its own complex and time-consuming process: change management.
Cuts project timelines by 33% or more Pushes milestones, durations, and overall project timelines past the preferred limits
Keeps costs under control Frequently incurs cost overruns, up to 189%**

 

Our approach will reduce rework by 80% or more and cut project timelines by at least one-third while driving innovation and user experience.

Consider the proven difference. Then experience it.

How Software Visualization Works

Experience tells us that any project can be visualized in some form or fashion – everything from websites, client-server, mainframes, mobile applications, and proof-of-concept and to kiosks and IVR can be visualized.

OneSpring uses innovative tools and methods to elicit project requirements and supporting details at new levels of clarity and accuracy.

JAM Session® - Close the Clarity Gap
  • Requirements gathering is supported by a collaborative platform that enables project stakeholders anywhere in the world to provide and share in real-time feedback—all without the need for programming.
  • Stakeholder see and experience their requirements come to life JAM Session – not weeks later in stacks of paper.
  • Visualized requirements are documented and critical details such as background processes, performance requirements, detailed business process management, and business rules are captured.
  • The visualization itself primes stakeholders to identify details that secure the success of the product.
