Every time here and then, there are always questions like,

“How do you corporate as both Sales and Pre-Sales roles” or
“How do you work closely with Pre-sales as a Sales without the technical know-how?”

This step-by-step guide is intended to guide you through the processes of how a proper IT solution is constructed from my experience.

It boils down to 5 steps,

  1. Business Architecture — Creativity and Consistency on Business Objective
  2. Application Architecture — Concerning “Concerns”
  3. Data Architecture — Understanding Needed Data Model and Design
  4. Infrastructure Consideration — Based on the above Architecture
  5. Summary Sheet — All things needed in one place

It takes the journey from Requirements gathering to final quotation and Scope of Work.

Such Practice is common to a Sales, Pre-Sales and Business Analyst. Below, I will be going through the responsible roles involved in each section.
