Agile methods are now applied in almost all IT projects in industry and services. Their strengths? It is based on the reality of the difficulties and the levers of success of the projects, and on the golden rule of producing value for the customer. For Novelis, agility is above all this: only do what is useful and efficient. And sharing with the client all the project information: successes but also difficulties, possible delays, disappointments, in order to address them as soon as possible.
Novelis provides its clients with adaptable and agile production structures, capable of implementing and maintaining digital projects according to different commitment modes (scope, means, capacity commitment). Our consultants, Project Managers, Product Owners or Scrum Masters, will support you in your projects with agility.
Users are more and more demanding on the evolutions, the quality and the deadlines brought to the IT projects. They also demand a high level of agility from project management teams. Responsible for the entire project cycle, the Project Management will have a direct impact on the respect of deadlines, the cost and especially the relevance of the tool that will be deployed. The challenges in this regard are numerous:
Inflation of development costs
Features developed and not used
Documentation rarely up to date and always expensive to maintain
Administrative activities with little added value
Efficiency problems of the project team
Poor collaboration and communication between project actors
Uncertain motivation and lack of involvement of the teams
Inadequacy of the real needs of the users
Reduction of the functional scope during the project to meet deadlines
Delay in the availability of the application
Discrepancy between the users’ vision and the final result
The risk of project failure
Initial predictive planning rarely compatible with the reality of the project
Instability of user needs
Insufficient project follow-up
Non-compliant software quality

Novelis is an expert in the management of agile projects with a highly iterative approach:
We can no longer count the good practices that come from agile approaches: the daily meeting, planning poker, test-driven development (TDD), continuous integration, simple architecture, etc.
Agility, but for what results? The experience at Novelis is significant: involved users, reduced time to market and serene development teams due to the fact that success becomes the norm and not the happy exception.
Of course, agility in itself is not an infallible guarantee of success. To run a good agile project, you have to be a good agilist. And that’s where Novelis’ experience comes in. Because there is agility in the books and agility in the field. At Novelis, agile is practical, without ever betraying its core values. Our extensive knowledge of agile and related methods (SCRUM, XP, UP, LEAN, KANBAN) allows Novelis teams to propose and adjust the most suitable method to the project environment and to the company organization.
As part of our business process industrialization and automation agenda, we partnered with Novelis to set up SS&C’s Blue Prism. Our AWS ecosystem was a key accelerator in the deployment of the RPA solution. AWS was our chosen cloud platform given its security protocols and scalability features. Blue Prism integration on AWS was a seamless experience. The endeavour, proven to be very successful, as we automated financial business processes within a few weeks. Our RPA journey with Novelis is just starting as we leverage the current foundation, add more use cases and improve our digital operations.
Head of IT department - Centre de gestion de la Sarthe
Management center of the Sarthe region called upon Novelis for a technical and organizational audit of the Information System Security. They proposed us a clear, relevant and rigorous analysis scenario. Their work allowed us to highlight weaknesses in our system that could have been damaging if they had been exploited by a malicious user. The clear and detailed reports allowed us to correct the weaknesses identified as quickly as possible, and gave us tools and guidelines to improve our security practices and procedures in the long term.
