With the Front End First™ approach...users get their data upfront while IT designs the final solution. They can make decisions, choices and establish rules based on the real data. They see the value, the complexity and the quality of the data before making requests. Business users are invited into the process, IT is validated and both see the project demands in advance. Engaging users from the start creates understanding and partnership in the project as well as reduces timely and costly errors that are typically exposed further down the development cycle.
Data integration rules, data quality and process re-engineering can be identified early in the cycle. This eliminates rework and ensures a high quality, business-ready final product.
