As this is an independent review service, De Villiers Walton can also advise on the maturity and robustness of functionality being implemented and indicate where business requirements could be better met by other approaches or solutions.

The review can be further customised according to the current phase of your project. For example, in the planning phase we will focus on the scope, timelines and budgets, while in the build phase we can place more emphasis on the solution design.

Deliverables

As the final deliverable of the review, clients will receive our expert findings in the form of a Key Findings Document and Recommendations Report which will contain the recommended actions for managing risks and improving the project and solution.
