CRE as a starting point

Professional requirements management

Plans have been made, and your new e-commerce project has an ambitious goal. With Spryker, the technological basis for the company’s growth was created. But how can you be sure that all ideas, wishes and visions are later on incorporated into the new solution? Who makes sure that nothing is forgotten? And how can you prevent some ideas from being implemented unchecked and with a lot of effort, although the customer benefit is rather low?

It’s quite difficult to manage a project of this scope with a high financial risk attached – and usually outside one’s core competencies. Professional requirements management thus becomes indispensable. Concept and Requirements Engineering by valantic is the essential basis for targeted software development. Our Spryker consulting service helps you to prevent undesirable developments and reduces the risk of failure throughout the course of the project.

Planning, concept creation & implementation How our CRE team at valantic works

Our goal is to always achieve a comprehensive, shared understanding of the project – from the big picture down to the small details – to ensure the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of your Spryker project.

Scoping and enhanced planning

  • Scoping
    Top-level definition of requirements for the future store system in the form of epics (functionalities, interfaces, technical framework parameters, usability, etc.)
  • Assessment of requirements
    Assessment of the requirements and comparison to Spryker’s best-practice approaches
  • Evaluation and prioritization
    Definition of the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) scope: evaluation of the epics regarding business value and effort (technological or organizational complexity), as well as identification of quick wins or “low hanging fruits”
  • Roadmap and project planning
    Clustering of the MVP requirements into work packages and workstreams, creation of a roadmap for the subsequent phases of the project

Detailed concept creation

Scoping and enhanced planning are followed by detailed concept creation. This ensures the effective and efficient implementation of the commerce project. From the UX/UI concept to the detailed description of the interfaces and data flows within the target system landscape and the documentation of the requirements in the form of user stories ready for implementation: In this phase, all requirements are specified to such an extent that a seamless transition from the concept to its implementation is ensured – without any frictional losses.

Thinking about taking advantage of Spryker consulting by valantic? You should – it’s bound to pay off! Because the quality of the concept and requirements engineering significantly influences the success of your software project.
