ACCelerate implementation methodology

Maximize efficiencies and minimize costs with an agile implementation process

An ACCelerated approach to project delivery

A successful project begins with a sound implementation methodology. At sa.global, our ACCelerate methodology is a proven and successful approach to implement our solutions across industries and customer environments. Based on our experience over the last three decades, ACCelerate provides industry-leading best practices, predefined business processes, and the Azure DevOps framework – all this to ensure transparency, deliver flexibility to changing demands, collaborative reporting, and efficient management of the project.

How does ACCelerate work

ACCelerate breaks down a project into individual steps – Prepare, Agile Design and Build, Deploy, Go Live and Hypercare, and Maintain (as illustrated below). Each phase outlines activities to be completed at that stage of the project as well as roles and cross functional workstreams. These steps are complemented by agile principles and a sprint framework, which drive iterative development and collaboration between functional teams.

Sprint cycles to respond to change

Geared towards continuous improvement, the sprint cycles bring in increased flexibility and adaptability to change. The sprint framework supports collaboration, communication, and coordination for faster detection of issues and turnaround time. By ensuring all project documentation is stored in a single shared repository, both teams can keep a watch on project efficiency and facilitate on-time and on-budget project completion of projects.
