Sure Step Methodology
WHAT IS MICROSOFT DYNAMICS SURE STEP METHODOLOGY?
Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step Methodology is an end-to-end customer life cycle which describes the standardized processes and disciplines necessary to implement Dynamics solutions. Sure Step is structured as a general methodology with a product-specific layer for each Dynamics product, providing guidelines and best practices to help successfully implement Microsoft Dynamics solutions. The content consists primarily of prescriptive phase-by-phase and activity-by-activity descriptions for completing each stage of an implementation. The methodology can be adapted and applied to different project types:
- Standard—The Standard project type can be used for implementing Microsoft Dynamics solutions at a single site requiring specific features and moderate-to-complex customization’s.
- Rapid—The Rapid project type can be used for implementing Microsoft Dynamics solutions in situations characterized by a limited scope, where the basic application features are desired and/or where the majority of the customer’s business processes are not considered as complex.
- Enterprise—The Enterprise project type is a standardized approach for implementing Microsoft Dynamics solutions in complex single-site deployments, or in global/multi-site organizations where unique business needs have to be factored on top of a core solution.
- Agile—The Agile Project Type represents an iterative approach to implementing Microsoft Dynamics Solutions at a single site requiring specific features and moderate-to-complex customization’s. This project type gives customers greater control over the final solution because they can quickly change the direction of solution development and implementation from one sprint cycle to the next.
- Upgrade—The approach to progress an existing Microsoft Dynamics solution to a subsequent release of that solution.
Once a project type is selected, Sure Step provides the relevant documents to fit that project type. Documents are provided for guidance at specific industry levels, including manufacturing, public sector, retail and service.
