Osellus - Software Process Solutions - process authoring and tailoring

Organizations that have implemented formal software development processes understand that no single process is suitable for all projects.  Deploying process that is inappropriate for the project characteristics can add friction during execution instead of serving to guide projects forward.  In addition, repeatedly burdening development teams with poorly suited processes can lead to a entrenched resistance to formal processes.  In contrast, processes that are adapted for a project context serve as a catalyst to help teams meet their development goals and satisfy the underlying business objectives.

Organizations that have invested in an established methodology may follow a “top down” process development approach in which pertinent content is distilled into multiple project configurations that may be augmented with project specific content.

Large organizations that have widely varying project demands may choose a “bottom up” or “aspect-oriented” approach in which process components, specific to a particular domain, are independently developed, extended and assembled to create end-to-end processes.  Creating rich process components requires the specialized contributions of subject matter experts throughout the extended organization.  IRIS Process Author provides the only enterprise-class solution for collaborative and distributed process asset management.

Following either or both approaches, an organization can collaboratively create a portfolio of relevant processes ready for project teams to deploy and enact. 

Osellus Professional Services provides process discovery and tailoring services to help clients model their processes in SPEM.
