Inoapps’ Sprint Methodology Flips Oracle Cloud Selection & Implementation

Here’s what our customers say:

“Our organisation has been looking at various options for sourcing an integrated finance and HR system. One issue that we have encountered is that when companies run demonstrations of a system, it is sometimes difficult to relate to how it would run within our own environment. The sprint approach from Inoapps appealed to us as it would allow the relevant teams in the organisation to test a limited implementation of the system using our own data, which would give us a far better indication of whether or not this is the solution for us, as well as alerting us to any areas that may need particular attention if we were to progress to a full implementation. Because the sprint approach is without any obligation, it has also been a very low-risk learning opportunity for our teams.”

Oracle’s Global SaaS Cloud Transformation Partner of the Year, Inoapps (www.inoapps.com) has launched today a game-changing methodology to Implement Oracle Cloud, called Sprint. This process enables organisations to see 80% of their solution in the Oracle Cloud quickly, with no upfront cost or commitment.

The new approach flips Cloud system selection on its head. It achieves this by putting prospective customers in the driving seat, allowing them to familiarise their teams with a proposed ‘real-life’ Business Solution before making an investment commitment. This real-life familiarity significantly speeds up the selection process and therefore the time taken to go-live. There are three stages to Sprint.

  • The first stage of the process is the ‘Preparation’ phase, where jointly with the customer, the Modern Best Practice Business Flows to be implemented are selected. Inoapps has built proprietary tools to identify all the scope required to get to an initial proposal, here the scene is set for the new system.
  • Should the Customer wish to proceed to the second stage, Inoapps’ consultants work closely with customers to ‘Align’ the system’s core design element with their specific requirements.
  • In the third stage the customer supplies data in pre-defined templates, which is loaded in to the configured system. Training is provided on the solution and the customer is given test scripts to validate the system. Further workshops are then delivered to define Data Migration, Integration, Reporting and Change Management Requirements. From here, a fixed price proposal is presented to the customer along with all the contractual documentation.

All three stages are free of charge to the customer, and are expected to last around 6 – 8 weeks.
Using Inoapps’ proprietary tools and considerable hands-on experience of selected business flows, followed by the submission of a formal transition proposal, this delivers a smooth transition to the new Oracle cloud-based business system.

Having seen what the prospective ‘real-life’ system would look like, customers have far greater confidence in their decision to move forward. By working in partnership with Inoapps, Sprint uses the latest Oracle Modern Best Practice Business Flows to streamline the processes involved, ensuring a smooth transition to Oracle Cloud. Inoapps was an early Oracle Cloud adopter itself, so has unrivalled experience and expertise when advising prospective users on how to get it right first time. Beyond this, Inoapps will deliver support services to ensure the system performs to optimal effect and that the value of the customer’s investment is maximised.

Says Andy Bird CEO of Inoapps, “For organisations considering a move to the Cloud there is a great deal of perceived risk in moving their critical systems to an unfamiliar environment. We’ve come up with a way to lower the risk and in this respect, our new Sprint methodology is a Game Changer. Any company’s implementation project needs to be well planned, so that it runs smoothly and effectively and that they experience minimum business disruption. Our revolutionary Sprint methodology is based on our Oracle technical expertise and our considerable in-depth understanding of business processes and transformation. With Inoapps’ Sprint, they can then immerse themselves in a real-life context to see exactly what their system would look like before they commit. Once they are happy, we implement this system specification; this saves them significant resource when transitioning to the transformational benefits of Oracle Cloud. However, it doesn’t end there. Following a successful go-live, we will work with them to keep their system in great shape, ensuring they maximise the value of their investment in Oracle.”
