Build the right product the right way. Follow a smooth process from planning to deploying high-quality software that drives business outcomes. Our approach to your success is based on best practices from Agile and User-Centered Design.
Cross-functional collaboration spans the teams and functions within your organization to draw on expertise from different departments and point all team members toward a common goal. It reduces “siloing” and, when done well, creates camaraderie and synergy.
We work alongside your team every step of the way, and take pride in building collaborative relationships. Our software engineering, product strategy, experience design, cloud, DevOps, quality assurance and project management experience are at your disposal.
Requirements and planning
The frameworks we provide focus on structure, planning and control of the development of information systems.
We create optimal plans for best-case scenarios, but we know that projects rarely work that way.
That’s why we bake preparedness into our planning. We are always ready to reprioritize in response to uncertainties, unexpected outcomes and changing requirements.
Agile is our standard practice for software development projects. Agile is a cyclical process of planning, executing, and evaluating until project completion. It requires constant collaboration with the project stakeholders and continuous improvement and iteration at every stage.
When client involvement is crucial or the product’s features and functions are not established, we use the SCRUM methodology. Through small incremental iterations, we test and advance towards the end product. The flexible SCRUM framework ensures we remain ready to adapt effectively to requirement changes.
The waterfall model provides a sequential and linear approach to software development and emphasizes the logical progression of distinct stages.
It is particularly appropriate for specific scenarios:
- Many initial product requirements and strict regulatory requirements
- Strict processes in place (for some industries)
- Low product owner involvement
- Enhancement to an existing legacy product
- Fixed timelines
The Waterfall methodology should be considered when the requirements and scope are well understood and the project is constrained by cost and/or time. In these cases, it provides a set of processes built on the principle of approval of the previous phase.
Brainstorm and converge on an optimal design for the problem and use cases to deliver maximum value
Develop with a focus on delivering maximum value for minimum effort and cost
Ensure software is comprehensively and correctly tested based on test plans concurrent to the development activity with close input from teams
Release & Iterate
Demonstrate completed work and request feedback, recording and reprioritizing changes and new requirements with a focus on delivering maximum value
Continuous improvement is a dedication to making small changes and improvements every day, with the expectation that those small improvements will add up to something significant.
Through regular short cycles, we encourage teams to interact and propose and evaluate process changes.
By slowly adjusting and making slightly better decisions on a daily basis, your team can move towards its goal of improving processes.
