We recently launched several projects for clients in the financial industry, including a new web-based software for a wealth management firm. The financial industry, or fintech, presents a unique set of challenges that we are able to tackle at Provisio. So, what exactly is involved in developing custom software for the financial industry?
In our last post, we covered the basic questions you should ask when getting ready to invest in a new website. Now that you have a general picture of your ideal website in your head, it’s important to really explore the details to avoid wasting time, money, and patience during the process. Let’s explore what questions you should ask next.
So, it’s time for your company to invest in a new website.
It’s tempting to jump in with both feet, but there are a lot of questions you should ask to ensure your new website is built to be exactly what you need for your business.
But first, why do you need to ask these questions?
Reason 1: Scope Creep
Our favorite open source content management platform is getting better - Drupal version 9 is coming June 3, 2020.
Drupal 9 is unique. Unlike previous new major versions, it is not a reinvention of Drupal. What does that actually mean? Think of your website like a train. Previously, moving to new major versions of Drupal meant moving the train to a different track entirely. Beginning with Drupal 9, new versions will just be stations on the same track.
You conquered your months-long (or was it years?!) website redesign project and you're feeling really good. What happens now?
Every business depends on technology to operate efficiently, connect with customers, and promote productivity. As a custom software development company providing technology solutions to achieve those goals, we often see a bottleneck when clients don’t fully understand the software development process.
Do you really understand the overall purpose of your project? Asking questions about the big picture helps create the user stories that will guide the entire development process.
