The Solution Build Methodology

Redolent Professional Services executes each engagement using a proven methodology, which comprises of phases including Discovery & Requirements Analysis, Solution Design, Coding, Deployment, and Support & Review. The best practices ensure validation and documentation of the solution vision before start of coding, which proceeds smoothly and swiftly thereafter. Discovery and Solution Design

Good planning builds the foundation of a successful project. The discovery and design phase enables the interaction between Redolent Professional Services and the customer team to design an architecture that meets the current business requirements and scales to support future growth.


To start the engagement, Redolent business consultants / architects work with the customer teams to discover the business and technical requirements. Typical questions asked during the discovery process include:

  • Who are the stakeholders in project success?
  • Who will be the end users of the application?
  • What teams need to work together?
  • What is the function of the application or site?
  • What are the relevant business processes?
  • How will the results be measured?
  • How will the solution meet evolving business needs?
  • What components are required in order to develop a fully functional, integrated solution?

Architects translate detailed requirements into designs that speed development to meet current requirements and ensure scalability for future initiatives. Coding and Deployment
