Phase 3. Decision-making
At the phase of decision-making the crucial role plays the successful completion of the above two phases. It is only after that we can make the RIGHT decision regarding:
- whether porting is a waste of time
- possible risks when porting
- estimation of time and effort required for performing the job
- as well as the calculation of cost
Also, at this phase we secure that every team member has a clear vision of all features, restrictions, and risks that can be derived from the application porting, as well as the specifics of the software and of platform the software is to be ported to.
In QArea we believe this is the only method to avoid the majority of risks.
