The importance of time, quality, and cost reduction cannot be emphasized enough in today’s technology programs. In the banking industry, which is much influenced by technology, regulations, as well as customer expectations, Agile plays a very important role in quick adoption of technology without compromise on quality. The extremely fast-paced IT world necessitates quick requirements planning and definition, outcome-driven delivery strategies, delivery itself to be uninterrupted and continuous, and at the same time very adaptable and flexible to change – change imposed from the business end as well as those imposed from the technology front.
Agile methodology has helped IT teams world over achieve this, and has helped close the gap between the team of business users, developers, and testers in a single camp, while imbibing a culture that is low on management and highly geared towards execution. At Maveric, our Agile services are defined by these important goals, and we offer the following services:-
- Consulting - Agile readiness and maturity advisory services
- Foundation Laying – Enabling Agile transformation in your enterprise
- Implementation & Governance - Agile-enabled delivery
With digital delivery being seemingly impossible to achieve without Agile, and banking being impossible without digital, Agile becomes the only mode of operation for all digital banking initiatives.
Agile Assessment – Built on concept of continuous improvement, and Maveric’s internal concept of “Step Change”, we assess your agile readiness, and construct a suitable adoption program that breaks the concept in adoptable steps with a focus on continuous improvement at every step.
