Product Intensive Engineering(PIE)
Overview

PIE is an Automated Engineering and Design Thinking approach to building software products with predictable speed and quality!
 
PIE helps teams work with product engineering ethos to take the software to the hands of customers in the shortest possible time without compromising quality through agility-driven software development.

PIE is a design thinking approach with automation at the core for producing software products. It combines the four pillars: People & Culture, Processes, Tools, and Technology. PIE ensures that tools are introduced right from the beginning of the SDLC process and issues are identified earlier, allowing us to adopt the Shift-Left Philosophy. With the power of Automated Engineering, we can integrate resilience into our builds and deployments, enabling us to roll out releases faster and with quality. 

Pillars Of PiE

PIE is driven by these four key pillars and helps in bringing in Total Human Experience (THx).  

  • Customer Alignment – Continuously listen to customers and anticipate their needs to enhance and personalize continuously.
  • End Game Goal– Focuses on what the customer expects and not what a competitor has. 
  • Insight Driven – Figuring out what a customer wants and using that insight to drive product improvement.
  • Continuous and Connected – Instead of being perfect, try to go fast with batch and incremented releases; get results from the customers and analyze if the results are compelling

 

PIE helps bring in the Continuous X approach to build and create the software product for a better Customer Experience. Continuous X helps build a culture of corrective measures, i.e., when software moves from Left to Right, which indicates Design to Deployment, System gives feedback from Right to Left and helps us ensure the quality of deliverables. Continuous X requires faster Quality feedback loops.
“Shifting left” by automating more and more steps; continuous quality feedback loops help capture issues/incidents across the Product Development lifecycle. 

As we stand today, we invite technology-led businesses to partner with us to realize their business goals. We also invite them to experience a significant business transformation leading to enhanced ROI - through power entrusted by the DecisionMines™ platform.

Practical Approach to Build Product

Continuous X is a blend of Continuous Development, Continuous Architecture, Continuous Testing, Continuous Deployment, Continuous Delivery, and Continuous Monitoring. With the usage and integration of Intelligent tools, we have Continuous Improvement built-in while developing the product, and the outcome is Continuous Learning & Experimentation. 
 
PIE helps us execute the Continuous test strategy, i.e., Start Test Early, Test Often, Test in Production (Shift-Right Philosophy). Feedback from testing serves as an input to shape features, minimize breaking changes & Reduction Cycle time, and take the software to the hand of the end customer with quality. 
 
Products are built for scale, performance, and high security. Continuous Monitoring plays an important role when multiple teams work together to build a Product. Tooling Data KPI plays an important role in Modern Day Engineering and People, Processes, and Culture. PIE has PCards that help monitor the product journey and deliverables. PCards are persona-driven dashboards, i.e., Scrum Master, Product Manager, and Engineering manager, and these real-time dashboards will help monitor the progress on click. PCards are configurable and will help consistently track the progress and quality of the deliverables.
