Discovery

Discovery is our first step that involves active communication with your team, careful studying of your problem, and considering wide variety of approaches to tackling it.

At this stage, we gather and analyze the necessary data, come up with a product vision stating its benefits and purposes, and develop a plan to solve your problem.

Tech Audit

For existing products

Points out the weak and blind points of the existing solution and identify areas for further involvement

Innovation

Simplicity is the end result of long, hard work, not the starting point.

Frederick Maintland

In Brilliant Consulting, we seek innovation to find a shortest path to create value, a better way to meet and exceed user expectations, finally, a new method to outrun existing competitors.

Once the strategic plan is approved, we prepare detailed documents explaining how to provide a solution or transform your business according to your goals.

While others are focused on software delivery, we believe it’s only the last mile of the whole process. Our focus is to think through all the possible risks, downfalls, gaps, and bottlenecks and build up necessary processes before the execution stage starts. That’s how the more you work with us, the more value you get and the more committed we are to your product. And bringing value is what we’re brilliant at.
