Software Development


Enhance your software to fit your specific business processes.

Customize your workflow

All successful Dynamics Extend strategies start with great ideas. But not all great ideas lead to successful conclusions, that’s where Halden can help. The path to success begins with a sound Dynamics Extend strategy.

The Extend Strategy begins with our team and yours reviewing the goal in mind, current workflows and whether or not software with that functionality already exists in the marketplace, as there is no need to reinvent the wheel. Once the decision is made to move forward, we assemble the appropriate Halden/client team members for a discovery session to gather all functional requirements.

Deconstructing the idea

During discovery, we will deconstruct your idea, marry it with user needs, then align it with your business goals. Key members of our team collaborate with your Decision Makers during a series of exercises to analyze the Extend project from every angle.

Defining & delivering the functionality

Once we get to the very core of the idea — the place where the user’s value proposition and your business needs intersect — we’ll define the scope required to deliver the functionality.

If our team finds the idea doesn’t solve key user problems or satisfy a business goal during discover, then they’ll you redirect and take a different approach.

At the end of our Extend discovery phase, if all Decision Makers are aligned on the project goals, the project moves into the Extend Design Phase and then the Deliverable Phase.

The phases broken down

Extend strategy: High level goals

Our Extend Discovery Phase is based upon the following high-level goals:

  • Determine what to build, and why
  • Identify and reduce unknowns
  • Assess costs and timeline
  • Optimize budget, schedule, and goals
  • Confirm alignment from all Decision Makers
  • Upon completion of the Extend Discovery Phase we move into the Extend Design Phase.

Extend strategy: Extend Design

The Extend Design Phase consists of the following exercises:

  • Business strategy and product review
  • Technical and system review
  • Design review
  • Go Live and post Go Live Testing and review

Extend strategy: Deliverable Phase

Upon Completion of your Dynamics Extend Project, you’ll have the following deliverables in hand:

  • Extend feature list
  • Recommended roadmap
  • User personas and user workflow diagrams
  • Technical and Functional architecture/system overview diagrams
  • Design phase itemized estimate and schedule
  • Engineering phase itemized estimate and schedule
  • Recommended next steps
