Product Strategy

JFDI always aims to deliver the highest quality of service. Leading us to use only trusted and proven technologies. We recognised Appian to be one of the leading low-code platforms on the market today. Bringing it into our technology portfolio strengthened up our capabilities to develop the most appropriate and effective solutions for our enterprise clients.

Product Design

JFDI always works directly with a client’s internal Business Analysts team, to fully understand and refine business requirements. Once the discoveries are mature enough, we begin our development cycle using Agile methodologies and then SCRUM framework. We always aim to deliver solutions to technical problems in a way, that non-technical people can relate to.

App Development

Our enterprise developers are senior developer (level 2) accredited Appian experts. Their experience, however, is way more. They have a deep understanding of IT systems and business needs gained over the years of solving technical problems and delivering top-notch solutions across many technologies. We are proud to be able to offer you their expertise.

What is JFDI’s Appian strategy to ensure a successful deployment?

We have developed a deployment strategy in house using Appian functionality in conjunction with our experience to create robust deployment plans

Every aspect of the deployment is managed carefully and includes: –

      • Review of the development work completed
      • Impact analysis on target environment (performance and functionality)
      • Backup of existing Application and Data
      • Impact on the end user (System usability and availability)
      • Post deployment testing and support

Deployments are planned and executed in consultation with a steering group to identify the best window of opportunity to minimise end user disruption

A typical JFDI commissioned Appian project

One of our clients has an extensive customer base. They recognised that they need to support their associate in following the guidance of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board which provide such standards on a sector by sector basis Using Appian, JFDI created a high-level Guidance Tool which forms an integral part of helping the client assess the most likely material ESG issues for a target company

Milestones observed:

New requirements were reviewed
    • Feasibility of work required to develop the known requirements – Is it possible and how long it will take?
Development to testing
    • After development is deployed to a test environment, JFDI worked with dedicated test teams to ensure the functionality is fit for the purpose
Staging to production
    • Once the testing phase was completed successfully, JFDI prepared the Go Live deployment from a test environment to the production
Performance analytics gathered
    • Our support teams monitor all environments to ensure the applications are in good health. Reacting to and resolving any incidents that are observed or reported
