This is an illustrative example of an App Stack that might be suitable for this fictitious ecommerce retail business, and how you could present your recommendation to a client or prospect using a report.
In a real-world scenario in-depth scoping and process mapping would be required to produce a much more detailed set of requirements, than what is outlined within the report. Research would then take place to ensure that the app stack met the requirements of the business.
Both the scoping and research should be chargeable to the client unless there is an obvious benefit to your firm which is immediately useable.
App Advisory Plus can help you to scope, research, and present App Stacks for your clients.
This report has been created using the App Advisory Plus Reporting Tool, which includes 4 customisable templates to help you to present App Stack recommendations to your business clients.
