Business strategy

Are your competitors talking about you in their boardrooms? Does your strategy guide how you allocate resources? Can every employee articulate your strategy and are they empowered to execute on it? At Data Stack Enterprises, we see strategy as much more than a plan. Strategy has been our core business. We work with companies in every industry to develop strategies that deliver results.

The main types of generic strategies that organisations can pursue are:

1. Growth i.e. the expansion of the company to purchase new assets, including new businesses, and to develop new products. The Inland Revenue has expanded from being just a tax collector, to other functions such as collecting student loan repayments and paying tax credits.

2. Internationalisation/globalisation i.e. moving operations into more and more countries. For example companies like Gillette, Coca-Cola, Kellogg’s, and Cadbury Schweppes are major multinationals with operations across the globe.

3. Retrenchment involves cutting back to focus on your best lines. The Americans refer to this as ‘sticking to the knitting’ – i.e. concentrating on what you do best.

FEASIBILITY STUDY

The  purpose  of   feasibility study  is  not  to  solve  the  problem, but  to determine  whether   the  problem  is   worth  solving.  This helps to decide whether to proceed with the project or not.

Our  feasibility  study concentrates  on  the  following  area.

  • Operational  Feasibility
  • Technical  Feasibility
  • Economic  Feasibility

Operational  feasibility

Operational  feasibility  study  tests  the  operational  scope  of  the  software to  be  developed.The  proposed  software   must  have  high  operational  feasibility.The  usability  will  be  high.

Technical  Feasibility

The technical   feasibility  study  compares  the  level  of technology   available  in  the  software  development   firm  and  the  level of technology  required  for the  development  of   the  product.Here  the  level   of technology  consists   of  the  programming   language,  the  hardware    resources, Other  software  tools   etc.

Economic   Feasibility

The  economic  feasibility    study  evaluate  the  cost  of  the software  development  against  the  ultimate  income  or  benefits  gets  from  the developed   system.There  must  be  scopes  for  profit  after  the  successful Completion  of  the  project.

When the feasibility study suggest that the project being considered is feasible operationally, technically and economically. This gives a  a green signal  that the problem is worth solving and can proceed  with the project .
