Explore and test your ideas and concepts during data sprints and design sprints to secure stakeholder confidence in validated data-driven outcomes. We bring together the most relevant people in both our businesses to collaboratively build and test your prototypes with real end users. The prototypes are built with Microsoft and Azure technology in mind to ensure the potential solution can be built as production ready solutions post the 10 day hack.
We have customised the existing Design Sprint framework many organisations use to meet the needs of our customers, empowering businesses to innovate from shared ideation, before creating validated product prototypes at speed with minimal investment.
Our two-week Data Sprint kickstarts with a series of intensive workshops for up to 10 people at a time. Your key stakeholders, decision makers, and real end users or representatives can contemplate your specific challenges from different perspectives. After agreeing on a potential prototype, we’ll feedback to ensure it offers the best possible solution. By taking a well-rounded team approach before developing your prototype, you can be sure to avoid potentially time-consuming and costly cycles. Our two-day data hackathon produces a feasibility score, so we can gauge whether to proceed to the 10-day Data Sprint. During the Data Sprint, we build a prototype and outline an approach to bring the solution into production. The prototypes are created with Microsoft technology in mind – by understanding how you currently ingest, transform and provision data we ensure they are future proof and capable of being embedded seamlessly.
By bringing together a group of professionals and SMEs to work on a single challenge and solution in the same place at the same time, we eliminate blockers and impediments stemming from secondary processes and bureaucracy often encountered during large-scale projects or programmes – ramping up the speed of delivery.
The following are key benefits you can expect from our service; Align your teams and stakeholders and get everyone on the same page; Reduce the risk of failure with a prototype tested against user needs ; Check the feasibility of the model/data/approach before you build • Rapidly progress from the Design/Data Sprint into build phases; Prototype can be socialised and presented for development funding decisions • Achieve buy-in for the change the project will deliver; Build and explore the potential of your Microsoft technology stack; Help to create a collaborative, innovative culture; Follow a structured process that always leads to a validated solution
The outcome of this sprint is to provide a real, working prototype of the final solution. By getting to this fast, we can test the hypothesis or explore the challenge quickly and understand the business value. The working prototype can be used then as a demonstrable tool within the wider business to drum up demand and excitement behind it. By doing this and proving the value, you will be able to explore how you would embed this into production environments enabling automation and business teams to continue generating value. The key deliverables from this are a working prototype to explore with your business teams.
