Inspace Approach for Achieving Goal

We understand that the scope to manage the project and the milestones to be as follows:

Phases and Milestones:

1. Project Management deliverables review and recommendations implementation

2. Upon completion of the Business Blueprint and before starting the Realization phase ReNew Power would like to have an independent opinion on the completeness and quality of key deliverables produced by the implementation vendor till the end of the Business Blue Print phase.

In this review Inspace would address:

  • Review of the Project Management documents (including the project management plan, processes, Risk Assessment Methodology, Risk & mitigation Procedures) in order to assess whether suitable controls have been put in place to proactively identify and mitigate project risks and address quality requirements
  • Review of the Business Blueprints for the above modules in scope to assess the adequacy and appropriateness of these deliverables.

3. Upon completion of the Realization phase and before the Go-Live ReNew Power would again like to have an independent opinion on the overall readiness of the systems, users and departments, and infrastructure. During this stage we would focus on:

  • Process Integrity Review (to assess the adequacy of the system controls, and compliance of transaction processing with the implemented controls)
  • Data Conversion Controls Review (to assess the adequacy of the controls used, and the completeness of information migrated from the legacy system to the new environment)

4. After the Go-Live

Inspace would review application controls and authorizations profiles, as well as data conversion and logical security and infrastructure security with those agreed during the realization phase. During this stage we would focus on:

  • Applications Controls Review (follow up review of application controls for the modules mentioned in the scope with respect to the gaps observed in the process integrity review).
  • Report any gaps in the production environment with respect to realization phase.

5.Inspace consultants will operate on a hybrid model (both onsite and offshore as required) in order to balance on project cost considering travel, accommodation and the deliverables.
