The license for a business depends on various factors like the type of the business, the regulations, and policies imposed by the government and the area in which they are planning to start the business. The license is a legal permit given by the local government to the company that indicates that it runs an authorized business and it is not only applicable to the new business, but even an existing company has to renew their application after a particular period. There are some businesses that require more than one license to operate their business legally in that state which is time-consuming and expensive, even though it is a tedious and frustrating process, obtaining all the legal documents and certificates enables the business to operate without any issues.

Rudioty Inc. is planning to implement a new project for managing its customer information assets using cloud solutions. Rudioty manufactures high tensile gears for sports automobiles which can withstand high temperature and stress. Since, Rudioty operates in a very niche field and the readily available COTS products in the market are not really suitable for the company. Rudioty has engaged with TechNizant to develop and implement a new solution for this requirement. TechNizant is one of the top 5 system integrators globally and has over a decade of experience in the domain. TechNizant has implemented many such applications in the same industry in the last 5 years. The business processes of Rudioty underwent massive BPR when the first wave of computerization happened a decade back. The operational processes thus are less likely to require significant changes, except for the geographic expansion of the firm, due to which financial reporting needs to be modified. Further this has led to the need for integration among data repositories, which have been siloed in different functional warehouses. However, the processes in Rudioty is very complex and inter-connected with each other. The CIO’s team often complain about the lack of support from the top management, for IT initiatives. IT projects are often looked upon as cost drivers. The CIO’s team is also risk averse and wants the solution to have maximum acceptance among the functional management.
What software development methodology should the Project Manager at TechNizant follow?
