ISSI's Agile software engineering and development approach are based on the industry standard Scrum framework. ISSI's Agile approach can be used to manage new applications development, operations support, infrastructure maintenance, maintaining security, and professional services related to the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Our Agile approach treats any work item as a backlog item led by grooming and prioritization. Our approach can be tailored to fit any customer requirement because we place value over process purity, leading to measurable results at regular intervals. Small work segments and iterations coupled with regular and frequent release cycles, periodic sprints involving regression cycles are quite common in our approach. We do not assume all requirements are known upfront, allowing both the users and project team members to quickly get adapted to a standard and pre-set design framework. Consciously focusing on the must-have features drives the multi-phase implementations at a rapid pace, resulting in greater value delivered in a given time, besides allowing flexibility to change as the progress continues. We reduce the risk of failure while boosting the customer's ROI at the end of the day.
ISSI specializes in Business Analysis — in helping organizations identify opportunities to improve how they conduct their business. Our success in Business Analysis is a direct result of our focus on "the big picture" of what it takes for the entire organization to be successful. Within the given context, we assess the ongoing business activities within each part of the organization, to determine how each activity contributes to overall success. This bottom-line approach ensures that the recommendations we make will have the most impact, and the greatest value for our customers. Throughout our analysis, we continue to assess activities contribution to the enterprise, identify ways for those activities to be done faster, with less expense and at no loss to efficiency or quality. We find alternative ways to get the activities done to enhance the output, linking activities together wherever possible to streamline them and produce a greater whole and many other factors influencing the bottom line. ISSI has a long, successful history of helping our customers improve their business operations, and, as a result, reducing costs, increasing revenue, and simply performing better.

Requirements & Specifications
Software requirements deal with the elicitation, analysis, specification, and validation of requirements for a given software solution.
The software requirement specification (SRS) document generates all necessary requirements for project development. This document is prepared after detailed communications with project team and the customer. It forms the basis of the functionality and operating environment of the software deliverable.
An SRS clearly defines the following:
- External interfaces of the system
- Functional and nonfunctional requirements of the systems design constraints
Here is an SRS outline:
- Definitions, acronyms and abbreviations
- Product perspective
- Product functions
- User characteristics
- Assumptions and dependencies
- External interfaces
- Functional requirements
- Logical database requirements
- Design constraints
- Software system attributes
- Organizing the specific requirements
- Additional comments
- Table of contents and index
Within ISSI, the construction of the SRS typically is in the domain of the Business Analyst.

Professional Services Management
Professional Services Management System (PSMS) is a system designed to assist recruiting personnel to work as a team while fulfilling staff augmentation needs of both internal and external clients. The application tracks all staffing requirements that come with defined skill sets, years of experience, pay rates, minimum employment work authorization and security clearance. Personnel involved in assisting this staff augmentation process can, with a few key strokes, match the requirements to the repository of resume within the system, and start the process of seating the resource at the client.
All communication with prospective clients, which may include commercial terms, selection process, and interview logistics, to name a few are recorded within the application. Consequently, this system creates a single vault for status updates on the staffing process. Based on a well-defined communication process for the organization, team members are kept abreast of the status on every individual job within the system. Such a system facilitates individual staff augmentation personnel to work either independently or be part of a tag team, without duplicating efforts or working at cross purposes. It also helps the team to remotely work, be geographically spread out and work in different time zones.
The PSMS application records and stores resume of skilled personnel. Further details of their expected pay rates to clients are also recorded to set the floor rate during negotiations with clients. PSMS has the ability to read through the word formatted resume of personnel and match for skills such as programming languages, RDBMS, Operating Systems, Web Development tools, etc. Such a search ability helps to quickly pick resume that match the client job description.
Seating a resource at the client, as we know, is a multi-stage process. It starts with receiving the job description from the client along with such details like duration of the assignment, place of work, expected rate and estimated date by when the resource has to be seated. PSMS runs a quick search of resume to find the best fit. Staffing personnel offer resume from this pool to the client for initial selection. Recording this step in the system keeps the entire team aware of the work-in-progress. When the client contacts the vendor team with feedback, the recruiting staff receiving this communication (phone/email) can carry out the next steps while keeping the entire team aware of the progress.
This process is continued till the case is closed. Closure is attained by the resource being seated at the client, or at any stage in between. Rate disparity, failure to qualify for an interview, failure to pass the interview, or a third party vendor satisfying the client needs may be cause for the process to terminate. In addition, if multiple resumes are offered to the client, not all may be selected. This may result in a few rejections along with the success.
Recording the cause for all successes and failures helps in the analytics. PSMS helps us analyze successes and failure rates at the client level, resource level, skill level, pay rate and the staffing personnel/team handling the assignment. Management gets a bird’s eye view on the performance of the professional services team and can drill down to a granulated level of their choosing. Such analytics helps management arrive at the metrics to determine performance of their professional services team members along with the strengths and weakness of their skilled resources.
