Business Solutions

Oracle e-Business Suite R12 Upgrade

Once the decision to move to Oracle R12 has been made, most users have a multitude of questions - firstly, they ask what's in it for them, then what will it take to do it and will they lose anything, which is already working? That's where the WalkWater Advantage is on display. We perform a health check of your systems (database objects, application objects, customizations, impact analysis, data analysis) and come up with a clear roadmap for the upgrade with minimal impact to the business and at record speed.

Oracle E-Business Suite Implementations

In today's challenging times, almost all small companies struggle to scale-up their IT systems. A long and expensive ERP implementation is no longer affordable. Organizations are on the look out for system enablers that implement their strategies and transform their business models rapidly without reinventing the wheel.

With WalkWater's rapid Oracle EBS implementation solution, customers can jump start their business within just 30 days. Working in tandem with industry-proven Oracle Business Accelerators (OBAs) our design techniques and tools further accelerate your implementation time line.

Quality Engineering: Build a better product while managing risk.

WalkWater's Quality Engineering practice helps our clients build better products while managing risk across the entire software development life cycle. First, we use our proprietary methodology to assess real business and technology risk so we are sure we are testing what needs to be tested, and no more. We then combine the power of agile testing with maximizing test automation to increase effectiveness and efficiency of the process across the software development cycle.

Business Technology Consulting

New technology environments are transforming business in every way. Business models are changing with falling barriers to entry, customer engagement models have more choice, and infrastructure models are moving to Cloud and SaaS platforms.

In this environment, businesses face complex, dynamic, and sometimes confusing choices across the technology landscape - choices that determine whether the new technology will be a value-creating asset or a multi-million dollar drag on the business. At WalkWater, our business and technology consulting practice is focused on helping clients make the right technology choices, design the appropriate architecture, and build applications that drive competitive differentiation.

It is estimated that a typical large enterprise today spends up to 80% of their IT budget on Maintenance and Support of their existing systems leaving only 20% of the budget for innovation and strategic projects. IT organizations stuck in this 80-20 trap are unable to meet the needs of demanding business users. CIOs with limited budgets are forced to choose between essential new efforts in Analytics, Cloud, Mobile or Social and deliver high quality IT services at a low cost with few resources. WalkWater offers comprehensive IT Support solutions designed to help CIOs build next generation IT organizations. CIOs not preoccupied with IT support issues; can focus on becoming business enablers with innovative IT solutions.


WalkWater’s Development Models

Onsite Model

This model is well suited where the development team is required to be close to the client's stakeholders, the project scope is not clearly defined, or a project is open-ended and iterative in nature. Throughout the assignment our consultants report to an onsite manager and also report back to our offices on a regular basis. Among the services provided by an onsite consultant are: project requirements capture and technology assessment, creating functional specifications, design, coding, testing, maintenance and support.

Offshore Model

With the Offshore Model, you receive the same high quality service while accelerating production through time zone advantages and leveraging exchange and labor rates for superior cost-effectiveness. The Offshore Model safeguards the client's intellectual property, proprietary software and new development specifications with very high levels of security. Clients retain full ownership of all intellectual property rights and software source code at the completion of a project.

Onshore Model

The Onshore Model is based at WalkWater's Silicon Valley location. You maintain ownership and control of your project without needing to commit your own capital or project resources. WalkWater keeps you abreast of project advancement through regular progress updates. This is especially beneficial when the client's requirements are not well defined and are expected to change during the course of the project. The Onshore staff will be able to understand and accommodate those changes in a faster and better way into the project

Hybrid Model

WalkWater's Hybrid Model combines onsite, offsite and offshore delivery models for better-quality results and maximizes efficiency in terms of both resources and costs. Typically, the planning stages of a project are executed onsite at the client's office; subsequent development and support phases are carried out offsite/offshore at WalkWater's location. Any urgent requirements will be catered to, using one of our global offices on an offsite basis.
