Discovery Program: a vehicle for digital transformation
DISCOVERY PROGRAM is a research period that is undertaken at the very start of a project. In the early stages of any project, there is a lot of uncertainty; if left unaddressed, it can create stumbling blocks and hindrances moving forward.

This is a practical step. It helps you to fine-tune a concept while meticulously planning design and development. Discovery aids in the avoidance of costly delays, snags, or significant strategic mistakes by providing purpose and direction to the project team and bringing everyone together around a common goal. It also assists in highlighting any possible hurdles that may arise later on and derail the project.

The DISCOVERY PROGRAM focuses solely on the highest-priority functionality. The Discovery Program includes technical complexity evaluation and research and is regarded as a planning step that helps you to grasp the technical side of the project, identify benefits and drawbacks, and minimise any potential risks.
Discovery Deliverables
Tools we use during the discovery process. Some of them become part of the final presentation (depending on the project needs)
Mind Map

Mind Map is an interaction diagram visualizing project needs and defines roles, modules, business-critical integrations.

Value: The Mind Map helps to understand the scope and boundaries of the project, build internal relationships, and track inconsistencies and duplicate requirements.

Product backlog

Functional requirements described in the form of user stories, understandable by both business and technical parties

User story explains:

- what type of user wants requires functionality;

- what exactly functionality is required;

- what user is trying to achieve with functionality.

Value: Assurance that planned scope of work consists only of the most business-critical functionality which is aligned with budget

Business process model and notation diagram

It visualizes the way the product works: the main scenarios of interaction with the system, how the user comes to his goal, and how the system responds to that interaction.

Value: Highlights interactions within MVP that could support future features for the proper system architecture planning and development.

Design concept

The core idea driving the design of a future product. The design idea focuses on the user interface (UI) and shows how the final product may appear and feel.

Value: This helps the designers and developers stay on track throughout the creative process, ensuring they bring a product to market with value to target users.

Interactive prototype

A version of your future product with limited functionality to make sure that it can be built using the chosen technology to serve its purpose and at the same time aligned with the budget.

Value: your key stakeholders will see that building the product is technically feasible.

Functional and non-functional requirements

Non-functional requirements specify what a system should be, whereas functional requirements define what it should perform.

Value: they outline the system's most significant characteristics and how they may impact the complexity and expense of development.

Request-response model

A document specifying the main requirements for integration with third-party services or APIs and defines the data formats in use.

Value: knowledge on how to integrate the solution with the required software

Bottleneck investigation

Bottlenecks are setbacks or obstacles that slow or delay business goals achievement. Identifying a workflow bottleneck early can help to streamline your processes before the results cause irreparable harm to your operations.

Value: detailed research of the problem and its possible solution.

The DISCOVERY PROGRAM assists in prioritising a scope of work; generating a product release plan that explains how and when you will have a finished product, as well as a high-level process diagram that depicts the product's functional ecosystem in an easy-to-understand method.
People are constantly in the process of DISCOVERY. They explore the unexplored, walk down untrodden paths, taste the unfamiliar. Discovery is always based on firsthand experience, to see things happen. Sometimes learning for the purpose of gaining knowledge and experience assists in close examination in order to grasp the “why” of things and get to the bottom of them. And the Discovery Program is here to help.

IT's Discovery Program is its own beast with many intricacies. The Discovery Program equips businesses in discovering existing underlying challenges in order to reveal the project's business value and technical complexity.
What are Discovery Program benefits?
As Discovery Program investigates and evaluates the technical complexity, it significantly reduces the risk of spending money on functionality which is useless for end-users, yet increasing the chance of receiving product envisioned by Business Owners.

The Program helps you in aligning your budget with product functionality and informs you of any potential functional and non-functional restrictions. You'll also get a realistic product scope estimate and a thorough grasp of the product development process.
Why you need Discovery Program?
Discovery Program helps both startups and enterprises to grow and scale: it improves your business processes, helps shape and develop the concept idea of your product, saves your money and time, and finally through a thorough analysis, gives you a clear picture and understanding of your business insights.
