Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V)

Consistent and independent oversight is a primary driver behind ERP success. Panorama Consulting offers objective, expert verification and validation of all aspects of an ERP initiative. Our industry expertise allows us to monitor and assess any ERP or IT project; our independence allows us to do it without bias or agenda.

Using Panorama’s proprietary PERFECT IV&V™ methodology, our IV&V service offering is structured as a partnership model with the client. Our IV&V analyses and deliverables provide tangible metrics and suggest alternative approaches to ensure organizations are on the right track to realizing optimal benefits from their enterprise solutions. Rather than just focusing on the quality of the implementation activities, our approach assesses the actual value of those activities and whether or not they contribute to a successful system deployment.

Our IV&V service offering includes:

  • Strategic planning
  • Monitoring of all project metrics (including budgets, timelines, KPIs, etc.)
  • Vendor contract adherence
  • Vendor / contractor oversight
  • Oversight of specific project components (including business process management and improvement, organizational change management, training and staffing)
  • Leadership and governance analysis
  • Organizational analysis
  • Data planning, cleansing and migration oversight
  • Auditing and regulatory compliance monitoring
  • Go-live preparation, planning and monitoring
  • Risk analysis
  • Post deployment usage and benefits realization assessment

It is particularly important for government agencies to conduct IV&V throughout the project life cycle. Having an unbiased partner in project success gives leadership valuable insight into potential risks, areas for improvement and even “blind spots” in the internal governance and management of the project as well as the work of any contractors.
