An average citizen has got some banking requirement. He got two options:

1. A regular old styled bank where you need to stand in the queue to deposit/

withdraw your own money – Takes 4 hrs

2. The same service on Internet Banking- Takes just 5 min

• Present day competitive world, no one has such a time to waste.

• In real time business environment also, everyone would like to be

flexible, would like to have information at the right time at any place so that

they can make most of their time and resources.

• Cloud provides that flexibility and instant information but at much much

cheaper costs any where, because there is no requirement to maintain a

separate computers or servers and people to manage them.

How are we different?• While many of the contemporary software work online or on a cloud (using

services like MS Sharepoint, virtualization etc), they are inherently desktop

based software and are not designed to be cloud centric. Data migration

processes etc are also very cumbersome as source code is simply not

available for them (and no hope as well).

• Our tools (Unleash) have been designed completely from a cloud centric

point of view and offer superior performance and flexibility for customization

(What would take several months to customize utilizing various tools would

be possible in weeks with our systems due to the inherent simplicity and

complete focus on cloud based delivery).

Methodologies: Waterfall and Agile

Waterfall is a Project Management methodology

which is more focused on building and following


Focus is on effective following of the defined processes

Agile is a Project Management methodology

which is highly flexible, fast and caters to

changes in competitive environment.

Focus is on how one can adapt to the changing requirements

Page 17: Unleash Pm Introduction

Methodologies: Waterfall and Agile Waterfall is a very popular software development

technique adopted in many organizations. Due to

increasing volatility in markets regarding requirements and

changes, many organizations have started moving towards

adoption of Agile practices.

Current state is that many organizations today practice

waterfall systems and Agile methodologies and a blend of

both as well (In same project). In addition, many

organizations adhere to various CMM practices.

Page 18: Unleash Pm Introduction

Methodologies: Waterfall and Agile Many organizations have project management systems in

place already (PMIS) as a part of PMO. However, still

many projects (75% of all projects) incur a cost escalation

of 179% over initial budget (Standish Group).

The traditional ERP systems are not able to deal with the

simultaneous existence of multiple project management

methodologies at the same time (some times within the

same project).
