CaaS is like hiring a technical expert on a need-to-have basis. Let us see how it all works at different stages of your project development.
Project Goals and Budget Estimations
An essential task for CaaS in the early stages of project development is preparing goals. CaaS draws up a business plan while taking into context the specificity of your business, technical trends, your competitors, your target audience and your value propositions. CaaS can also recommend the appropriate budget for your project based on the capabilities, ambitions and business risks of your company.
Software Requirements and Strategies
To figure out the necessary user stories and tasks for your project to start, CaaS can help in listing and describing all the critical requirements for your product including its design and architecture. This can take the form of a functional specification document or flowchart diagram. CaaS can also assist in searching the right technology stack for your product. The expertise of a CaaS can provide clear, organised directions for the development of your minimum viable product (MVP).
Project Management and DevOps
CaaS can be involved in your sprint-to-sprint project planning. CaaS can aid in prioritising tasks and calculating a clear plan of action for your developers and designers. This makes it easier for you to evaluate work progress, identify critical threats to your project, and efficiently allocate project resources. As part of management, CaaS can also be part of your hiring process by devising the relevant criteria and conducting in-depth interviews to acquire a strong and talented team.
Development and Testing
CaaS can supervise developers and check how their work meets your project requirements. CaaS can be involved in prototyping, system design creation, wireframes creation, UI/UX design, algorithm development and debugging. To conduct proper quality assurance testing in order to minimise product defects, CaaS can also define testing objectives, choose testing methods, find representative users, create task scenarios, replicate testing environments and analyse the results.
Pitching and Presentations
Stakeholders make decisions based on the quality of your team and your presentation. CaaS can improve your pitch by predicting their points of attention and providing the answers to their technical questions. CaaS can also communicate your technical milestones with confidence and react to any impromptu queries about your implementation timeline. This creates a capable and positive impression of your team which can further build trusting relationships with stakeholders.
