Alfa, provider of Alfa Systems, recently rolled out a new thought leadership series to discuss how asset finance organizations can work in an agile fashion to deliver quick and often on their software implementations.

The series, titled “Innovation in Implementation,” draws on the talent and experience possessed by various individuals at Alfa to cover key concepts such as phased implementations and integration, accelerated implementations, and the onboarding of new portfolios; as well as how to iterate and keep delivering value through effective hosting and partnering strategies.

The first segment — Derisking Your Systems Replacement Project through Phased Implementation — delves into how lessons learned from the industry, alongside the rise of agile methodologies, have prompted alternative, phased implementation approaches that present an exciting opportunity for companies to move away from the traditional models that bring a high level of risk, complexity and cost.

Michael Mousdale, a project manager at Alfa and author of the first series, said, “At Alfa we have a rich history of delivering successful software change. In the Innovation series we draw on that to share our expertise and best-practice experience that sees results every time.

“Projects are taking an ever closer look at leveraging phased approaches as a way of mitigating against the pressure, expectation and risk of a ‘Big Bang’ approach. These days things are more about eliminating the barriers to getting work done efficiently, with the greatest flexibility and fewest constraints,” Mousdale continued in a news release.

The second part of the Innovation in Implementation series is to set be released later this year, discussing how to onboard new portfolios efficiently and effectively.
