What is the Technical Discovery Phase and why is it helpful?

Research icon

Rebuilding a digital product, or migrating to another tech stack is a challenging task.

Without a thoughtful investigation, you may be overpaying for a project that will never meet your goals, nor objectives.

And this is why we highly recommend The Technical Discovery Phase - it is an exhaustive and super detailed investigation of technical possibilities that we do to align your project business goals with the project scope.

Thanks to our in-depth technical knowledge and experience, we can plan your project with mathematical precision to help you optimize both development costs and time.

Prevent and minimize the risk of:

  • Delivery delays and growing development expenses

    caused by poor technology choices.

  • Unveiling tech stack limitations

    in the middle of the development process.

  • Overpaying for features

    that will have no impact on the project success or could be easily replaced by no-code solutions.

  • Losing SEO power

    caused by technical issues, limitations, and poorly planned data migration.

Main goals of discovery phase:

Mission icon
  • Clarify your business goals and the most important project objectives
  • Investigate the current project state deeply
  • Define the project scope of work and functionalities to implement
  • Suggest the best technical approach
  • Prepare the project plan, priorities, timeline, and cost estimation more thoughtfully

Align technology to your business, not the other way around

Thanks to many Technical Discovery Phase benefits, you will be able to:

  • Optimize the time and cost of development.

  • Choose a tech stack that will match your business preferences.

  • Get a clear and extensive plan of action.

  • Build the right infrastructure, choose the best platforms, servers, and third-party tools. Cost-efficiently.

When to use the Technical Discovery Phase?

  • Your project is complex and needs a thoughtful investigation.

  • You'd like to have a clear project roadmap and align this with your expectations.

  • You afraid of losing your SEO during the migration.

  • You want to optimize the project budget.

    • Then, we will send you an extensive questionnaire that will be an important base for understanding the context.
    • If needed, we will also run a meeting in which we will make sure we understand each other on the goals and objectives.
    • We may also be willing to ask spontaneous questions by email/slack.
    • After the analysis phase, we will run a meeting and present our findings. This will be a great opportunity to, again, make sure we do understand your objectives deeply.
