Functional Analysis

Organizations have thousands of choices when implementing content technologies in the United States today. Whether it is a Web content managementdigital asset management, multi-channel publishing to print, web, mobile or tablet, or a workflow management system, companies can either implement software using internal resources, in conjunction with the software publisher, or with any number of independent consultants or consulting firms throughout the Globe.

So why choose DPCI?

Elsewhere on this website we write a great deal about our deep experience with a variety of content technologies, as well as our subject matter on how businesses want their content production and delivery to work. Another key differentiator for DPCI as a consulting business is our prioritization of excellence in functional analysis.

At DPCI, we believe that projects frequently fail due to poorly elicited and documented business, stakeholder, functional, nonfunctional, and transition requirements. While frequently the software publisher is blamed for poor product, the problem often is rooted in the implementing company's lack of training in proper business planning, analysis, and documentation.

Our CEO, Joe Bachana, who in his childhood learned carpentry as a hobby from his grandfather, was reminded back then, like so many of us in our lives, of the old adage to "measure twice, cut once." At DPCI, rigorous requirements process and documentation helps our customers mitigate the risks associated with poor technology blueprints.

The DPCI Approach

The business analyst team at DPCI has worked for over 12 years to define a streamlined approach to helping our customers elicit and document functional requirements for a wide variety of content technologies. As a starting point, we leverage best practices found in the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK), written by leading global business analysts affiliated with the International Institute of Business Analysts. We derive many of our templates and practices from organizations like IEEE and other standards bodies. And we, ourselves, have worked very hard over the past decade to continually refine and optimize our own approach, our templates, and the tools we use to give our customers the best value in functional analysis.

The results speak for themselves. As you browse our site, take a look at our portfolio and testimonial sections. So many executives from brand name companies gush not only about the great work that we have done for them on their technology implementations, but also on how we helped them improve their processes around business and functional analysis at their organizations. That translates to great value, since companies then become better at requirements elicitation and documentation internally.
