We provide custom application development capability for our customers using Java, Microsoft and open source-based technologies.

Application Enhancement

This includes major and minor enhancements to existing and running applications, also encompassing functional and performance enhancements. Analysis of the problem, specification of the solution, development, testing and implementation are dealt in a planned and structured manner with regular progress reports being delivered to the customer.

Application Migration

We offer migration services from legacy systems to next generation systems and platforms. We effectively handle the end-of-life management of applications that are migrated in a planned and structured manner. We are focused to enable parallel running of both the old and new systems, until the requirement for data in the old systems ceases.

Application Reengineering

We reengineer Old legacy systems and applications to enhance functionality and maintainability. This includes reengineering of application source code.

Application Maintenance

Our application management, maintenance and support processes ensure that the systems are flexible to meet evolving demands of business, and provide measurable improvements to maximize IT investments. The idea is not just to 'keep the lights on', but to eliminate application redundancies, provide business value and enhance the overall IT Systems performance while controlling the support cost.

Application development process is broken into five phases with specific toll gates for each phase, based on the requirement of customer interaction and utilization of offshore resources wherever possible. >
  • Requirement Gathering Phase:

    Requirement gathering is done mostly at client site with an experienced team which also undertakes requirements analysis.

  • Design Phase:

    Design is usually performed at offshore with onsite participation driven by degree of customer involvement in defining architecture.

  • Development and Testing Phase:

    Application development and testing are executed at offshore.

  • UAT and Implementation Phase:

    We provide extensive support to our clients during UAT which is done in customerís environment including setup of delivered components, issue and defect tracking.

  • Long Term Support Phase:

    As per customerís requirement, i-VIKAL enters into a long-term support contract. We offer a cost effective solution leveraging offshore, and can bring in year-on-year cost reduction by continuously improving the support processes.
