This due to the extensive features and toolset we provide.

Building business applications the START-GO-GROW way

Doing software development with openM2 will open a whole new approach on how you build your business software applications - we call it START-GO-GROW.

  • START with your initial project - analysis and design your requirements as good as you can but keep in mind that you might not get everything perfectly at first try. And even if you do those requirements might change in the future.
  • GO with your new solution, train your users and then start gaining insights by learning as much as you can from your users and your evolving business. Collect your insights, prioritize and start planning your next step.
  • GROW by implementing your next step and start with a new GO-GROW cycle.

Some might call this Agile Software Development - in fact the approach is similar but with a wider timeframe and suitable for those who are not trained in agile methodologies like SCRUM.

openM2 supports this approach as the high flexibility of the core framework lets you easily apply adjustments and modifications on your structures. This will help keeping costs low for the update work and enables investment into innovation.
