IT Design 

Harnessing the Power of Strategic IT Design

According to the International Journal of Software Engineering and Applications, a staggering 40-70% of software development projects worldwide are plagued by rework, a substantial portion of which can be attributed to inadequate design and architecture definition in the early stages.

At HPC, we recognize the critical importance of robust IT design services in addressing these challenges within port terminals and maritime operations. IT design serves as the cornerstone for analyzing business processes, redefining them for enhanced efficiency, modeling the desired end state of the IT landscape, and engineering requirements for successful implementation.

Failure to meticulously design in the early stages often leads to a cascade of issues, including delays, scope creep, and compromised project outcomes. By investing in a comprehensive design, terminal operators can mitigate risks associated with unmatured processes, incomplete requirements, and premature transitions to implementation phases.

Empowering Operations: Exploring HPC's Comprehensive IT Design Services

HPC’s IT design services represent a strategic approach to optimizing terminal operations, enhancing productivity, and future-proofing against evolving industry dynamics. HPC’s IT design practice entails three main processes:

Business architecture involves the comprehensive analysis, design, mapping, and potential redesign or reengineering of business processes. Through this process, critical implementation success factors are identified for each process and stakeholder. The outcome is a detailed heat map highlighting the most critical activities and process transitions.

IT landscape definition involves determining and declaring both the starting state and the desired end state of the port's IT infrastructure. This process requires making educated choices on various aspects, including project methodology, go-live strategy, hosting options, and development strategy. These decisions are made for each building block of the entire architecture, considering factors such as whether to build or buy solutions and whether to opt for custom or off-the-shelf solutions.

Requirements engineering involves identifying and defining various types of requirements, including business, functional, technical, compliance, transition, migration, and integration requirements. This process enables full traceability during both development and testing phases.
