In general, Proof Of ConceptsPOC are created to validate an idea or assess the feasibility of a concept before any development process begins and remain private from the public.
Proof Of ConceptsPOC are an excellent method to share knowledge related to the core features of a new digital product or service inside an organization or between development teams. During their creation, the focus remains exclusively on technology, intentionally ignoring the design (User-Experience/User-Interface, UX/UI).
Proof Of ConceptsPOC become mandatory when entrepreneurs, start-ups, or businesses pursue an idea that's brand new or if the future digital product or service contains an original feature that clearly separates it from the competition. For concepts that are already validated in the market, the creations of Proof Of ConceptsPOC becomes optional.
For truly innovative start-ups that wish to develop out-of-the-box digital products and services, Proof Of ConceptsPOC will help in collecting evidence and information that can be presented to stakeholders and investors. Proof Of ConceptsPOC verify technical assumptions and the practicality of an idea while keeping costs down and risks low.
It's also important to point out that Proof Of ConceptsPOC can be useful for seed-stage funding and are considered as valuable research to get a definitive
green light for the actual development process.
