Technical Feasibility Assessment

A technical feasibility assessment is an important step in ensuring the success of a project. By carefully evaluating the technical requirements of the project, organisations can avoid costly mistakes and delays and ensure that the project is achievable within the organisation's resources and capabilities.

What is Involved in a Technical Feasibility Assessment?

A Codex technical feasibility assessment typically includes the following steps:

Working with you to understand the technical requirements of your project. This includes understanding the desired outcome, the timeline, the budget, and the resources that are available.
Reviewing your existing technology infrastructure to assess whether it is capable of supporting your project.
Undertaking analysis to determine if there are any gaps in the technology, and identifying the necessary solutions and recommending the best course of action.
Estimating the cost and timeline of the project, based on the technical requirements and the solutions that we have identified.
Providing a recommendation on whether the project is technically feasible, and if so, the best way to move forward.

What are the Benefits of a Technical Feasibility Assessment?

The benefits of engaging Codex to conduct a technical feasibility assessment include:

Reducing the risk of project failure by identifying and mitigating potential risks.
Improving project planning and management by providing information on the cost, time, and resources required.
Increasing the chances of project success by ensuring that the project is technically feasible.
Saving time and money by identifying potential problems early on and avoiding costly mistakes and delays.
Improving communication, collaboration and consensus by bringing together stakeholders from different departments.
Providing a road map that outlines the steps required to successfully complete the project.

If you are considering a new digital transformation, modernisation or reinvention project, a Codex technical feasibility assessment will ensure that you understand whether the project is achievable within your organisation’s resources and capabilities.

Technical Feasibility Assessment FAQs

What kinds of projects benefit from a technical feasibility assessment?

  • New platform builds.
  • Existing platform rebuild or application modernisation.
  • Existing platform integrations.

Do I need a technical feasibility assessment?

A technical feasibility assessment is a process of determining whether a proposed project, product, or service can be technically implemented using current or available technology. It is important to conduct a technical feasibility assessment before moving forward with a project, as it can help to avoid costly and time-consuming mistakes.

There are a number of factors that can affect the technical feasibility of a project, such as the complexity of the project, the availability of technology, and the expertise of the team. If you are unsure whether a project is technically feasible, it is always best to consult with a technical expert.

Is a technical feasibility assessment the same as discovery?

Technical feasibility assessment and discovery are both important steps in the project planning process, but they are not the same thing. Discovery is the process of gathering information about the project, such as the: requirements, the target audience and stakeholders, the market opportunity and competitors, and the budget. Technical feasibility assessment is the process of determining whether the project can be technically implemented.

Discovery is typically conducted earlier in the project planning process, while technical feasibility assessment is conducted later. Discovery can help to inform the technical feasibility assessment, but the two are not interchangeable.

What happens if we don't do a technical feasibility assessment?

If you don’t do a technical feasibility assessment, you run the risk of:

  • Spending time and money on a project that is not technically feasible.
  • Missing deadlines and overrunning budgets.
  • Delivering a product or service that does not meet the requirements.
  • Damaging your reputation.

It is always better to be safe than sorry and conduct a technical feasibility assessment before moving forward with a project.

What deliverables do we get at the end of a technical feasibility assessment?

The deliverables of a technical feasibility assessment can vary depending on the specific project, but they typically include the following:

  • A report that summarises the findings of the assessment.
  • A list of the technical requirements for the project.
  • A plan for how the project will be technically implemented.
  • A list of risks and challenges associated with the project.
  • A recommendation for whether to proceed with the project.

How long does a technical feasibility assessment take, and how much does it cost?

The length and cost of a technical feasibility assessment will vary depending on the complexity of the project. However, a typical technical feasibility assessment can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, and it can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars.

The cost of a technical feasibility assessment can be a significant investment, but it is a worthwhile investment that can help to avoid costly and time-consuming mistakes.
