Whether you’re planning a complex system roll-out with mobile access being a part of the strategy or contemplating a possible impact your newly developed technology would make on the end-users, testing the feasibility of your ideas with a proof-of-concept (POC) is a great way to chart the course. Starting your New Product Development (NPD) initiative with a POC is a low-profile tactic for achieving maximum results with minimum business risks and resources involved: evaluate the potential of your concepts for real-world application, asess the system-to-be for ability to satisfy certain requirements.
Depending on the goal of your development initiative, intended work scope and resource availability, using a particular mix of research and development effort or a blend of those will yield specific measurable results that will define the next action steps in your implementation strategy:
— is instrumental for quick testing of an assumption on relevant technology choice, its applicability to performing particular tasks, as well as compatibility with other technologies employed in the project.
— has proved to be effective for assessing the implementation of an online system or a product, which involve a great deal of interactivity with the end-user. Here a prototype is created to demonstrate the usability and performance of the future system or product or its ability to integrate with external systems. This type of R&D is invaluable for UI design and implementation.
— implies full production system implementation aimed at testing it in live interaction with the general intended focus audience. It provides better insight into how the product will likely be used in the target field of application, while identifying areas that require refining and fine-tuning.
With mobile devices increasingly serving as a “remote control to the world”, it’s vital for success of a business to make the most of the mobilization capabilities offered today. Providing users with compelling and interactive mobile experience by supplying useful, usable, and desirable apps, is a proven way for connecting with the target audience, extending value of engaging with your organization, building loyalty, differentiating yourself from the competition, and using it to your business advantage to drive growth.
Chris Howard, Softeq's CEO, speaks about the benefits of implementing a Proof of Concept in business projects and provides advice to enterpreneurs and innovative businesses helping guide them from a concept to prototype and later to Minimum Viable Product and finally to the commercial release.
