Live Application Design/Development (LAD/D) is a Hyper-Agile process that streamlines 80-90 percent of system design & development compared to traditional Agile methodology.
Traditional solution development paths include Discovery, Planning, Analysis, Design, Development, Testing, and Implementation.
LAD/D allows users to quickly design a cloud-based application in a fraction of the time and without the need for JAD sessions, scope documents, user stories, or developers.
The LAD/D process was specifically created to work in coordination with ReAccess and PowerLine, a no-code development platform that allows citizen developers to create applications in a secure cloud-based environment.
What is Hyper-Agile
Software developers and IT professionals are familiar with Software Development Lifecycles, or SDLCs. The Agile SDLC model is an iterative process that uses predictive methods for requirements gathering, development, testing and project change management. This methodology has been widely used, especially in organizations where project teams are in the same location, where they interact closely with one another. Team members include project managers, software developers, engineers, as well as the customer, to create a software solution.
As project teams move to remote working, the traditional Agile process becomes more difficult to execute successfully, causing breaks in the process and miscommunication between teams, all leading to longer project lifecycles. The Hyper-Agile process simplifies the development lifecycle using No-Code Development Platforms and Citizen Developers to produce a business-critical solution tailored to specific needs.
Intact’s LAD/D™ methodology is a discovery session used to gather the necessary information from the Subject Matter Experts involved in the session.
The LAD/D™ Canvas is used as a guide to gain a high-level understanding of a business’s infrastructure. The details captured in the canvas are translated into a Requirements (LAD/D) Manifest which captures a complete taxonomy of the requirement details.
The LAD/D Manifest is the framework for developing the new application. Once the high-level requirements have been outlined on the LAD/D canvas, the field level details are translated into a worksheet (LAD/D Manifest) that captures a complete taxonomy of the requirement details.
After the details are captured and approved in the LAD/D Manifest, it is imported into ReAccess. The results create a working prototype with all the necessary components to support a cloud application.
The results of the LAD/D process can be reverse engineered to provide detailed information about the solution. This information is documented in the Application Requirements – Prototype Documentation and the ReAccess User Guide.
From this process, the system owner will have a requirements document and user guide based on the actual solution approved by the citizen developers.
