Followed by the user requirement definition stage , we had our development process happening in close collaboration with the end-user, where we’ve applied SAFe approaches and constructs. It was huge since Agile, DevOps, and SAFe were unknown at that time.
We got lucky having this support from SCCB leaders, who proved themselves to be the top-level professionals ready to play a major role in the success of this project. It allowed us to deliver the Value in pieces over time, ensuring that all the sprints were on-track and to plan based on the real world results. We have connected teams from over 90 different organizations involved in system development.
Tasktop allowed us to connect more than 2000 experts and tools they’ve used in multiple Product Value Streams. Having Tasktop flow framework tools and other solutions working for our advantage made it possible to track the work invested by every counterparty. We could have field tested data after the second sprint already – it allowed us to see what we had to improve to speed-up the software delivery time. For example, we knew where to focus our additional resources to increase our feature capacity post-release.
Results speak of themselves – instead of wasting years using the old-fashioned waterfall approach, it took us eight short months to come up with a working product.
That’s the state-level project which changed the industry and is now used by tens of thousands of people. SCCB is now one of the few supervising authorities in the world capable of delivering such a level of service and we are proud of being a part of their success story.
BIS allows getting approval from everyone involved without any delays. It eliminates bureaucracy by introducing high level business solutions. SCCB is now focused on delivering more value through building new additional sub-systems around this core product. For example, they can automatically track all the architects and engineers involved in the construction, their work, and approvals, ensuring that the building is safe to use.
