  19. Plan Maintain Design Deploy Iterative Build Production Test Train HyJump “Base Foundation”:Project Execution Plan The HyJump Development Methodology employs an iterative/phased approach. This philosophy delivers immediate and tangible benefits in the context of an enterprise architected solution. The methodology enables organizations to build upon iterative successes, realize a healthy return on investment, and satisfy changing business needs. • Methodology Benefits • Immediate and constant return on investment • Shortened development time per iteration • Quicker user acceptance • Maintainability of technical architecture in an iterative fashion • React to requirement and scope changes faster • Manageability of resources and deliverables

  20. HyJump “Base Foundation”:Project Execution Plan Typical Project Timeline = 3 months

  21. HyJump “Base Foundation”:Project Execution Plan System Build System Design Testing & Tuning System Deployment Project Planning & Initiation The Project Planning and Initiation phase focuses on establishing the foundation for conducting a successful implementation. This includes establishing the parameters around how the project will be conducted and managed. These are critical factors to ensure that the project team is operating as a cohesive team driving to one common goal. Activities Key Deliverables • Identify project stakeholders • Identify project steering committee • Identify project implementation team; internal and external • Establish project goals, objectives and scope • Identify project risks and mitigation strategies • Define the project management structure; project governance, status reporting, issue reporting & resolution, project tracking, communication strategies, change management • Finalize project plan • Establish development & test environments • Conduct project kickoff meeting • Gather functional and technical requirements • Project charter documentation • Project plan • Project Kick-off meeting • Hardware & software computing environments • Requirements documentation Milestones • Project charter signoff • Requirements signoff

  22. HyJump “Base Foundation”:Project Execution Plan System Design System Build Testing & Tuning System Deployment Project Planning & Initiation During the System Design phase, the business and technical requirements are decomposed to their core components and prioritized. A system design is then developed that includes infrastructure, architecture, data integration, user interface and business process components. Activities Key Deliverables • Conduct design sessions • Design system architecture • Design data sourcing strategy • Design data integration (ETL) • Design database (dimensions, hierarchies, consolidation attributes, etc.) • Design input forms, user variables and substitution variables • Design business rules • Design security components • Design reporting and user interfaces • Design administration and maintenance strategy • Design automation strategy • Design disaster recovery strategy • Detailed system design documentation • Prototype of system components • Internal and external team cooperation Milestones • Signoff on detailed design

  23. HyJump “Base Foundation”:Project Execution Plan System Design System Build Testing & Tuning System Deployment Project Planning & Initiation As the name implies, the System Build phase consists of execution by the project team of those tasks associated with building all the system components. The detailed design established in the System Design phase is used to govern the build efforts. Deviations from the detailed design will be managed in order to govern the project scope, timelines and success. Activities Key Deliverables • Constructed data integration layer • Constructed Planning application, database and business rules • Constructed reports and user interface • Knowledge transfer • Construction of the data integration layer utilizing ODI • Construction of the Planning Application components including the application settings, substitution variables, dimensions & hierarchies, member formulas, web forms and application security • Construction of Planning business rules & runtime prompts • Construction formal reporting packages • Construction of task lists and workflow • Unit testing of all system components Milestones • Signoff on system build

  24. HyJump “Base Foundation”:Project Execution Plan System Design System Build Testing & Tuning System Deployment Project Planning & Initiation The System Testing & Tuning phase is initiated upon receiving signoff on the components built during the System Build phase. The testing efforts are conducted first as a formal system test to ensure operability of all system components collectively. Next acceptance testing is conducted by a representative user group to ensure satisfactory alignment with the functional and technical requirements. Finally tuning efforts ensure the optimal system performance. Activities Key Deliverables • System test cases/scripts • Completed system test • Acceptance test cases/scripts • Training documentation • Completed acceptance test • Optimally tuned system • Define system test strategy • Develop system test cases/scripts • Conduct system test • Resolve issues identified during system test • Complete system test subsequent to issue resolution • Assemble acceptance test team • Develop acceptance test cases/scripts • Conduct acceptance testing • Application tuning Milestones • System test signoff • Acceptance test signoff

  25. HyJump “Base Foundation”:Project Execution Plan System Design System Build Testing & Tuning System Deployment Project Planning & Initiation The System Deployment phase is initiated upon receiving sign-off from the system testing and user acceptance testing teams. The activities associated with deploying the application and creating training materials for the user are handled in parallel. After the application is successfully deployed, user training is completed and the application is made available for use. Activities Key Deliverables • Application migrated to production • Application loaded and consolidated with production data • Trained user community • Migrate Planning metadata to production repository • Migrate Business rules to production repository • Migrate application settings to production environment • Import users and security to production repository • Load production data • Consolidate database • Verify functionality • Create training materials • Conduct user training session Milestones • Project deployment sign-off • Post implementation review

  26. HyJump Rapid Deployment:The Value Proposition • Allows organizations to realize immediate cost savings through an accelerated implementation. • Establishes a budget conscious methodology that deploys Hyperion Planning’s base functionality (HyJump’s “Base Foundation”) to satisfy core functional requirements. • Promotes the selection, inclusion, and customization of additional Hyperion Planning functionality through HyJump’s “Planning Functionality Blocks”. • Facilitates a phased approach in which knowledge transfer is conducted whereby clients assume ownership of future project phases; reducing dependency on external services and associated costs. • Utilizes pre-built, customizable templates (models, forms, reports and business logic) reducing development cycles and project cost.
