How We Design, Code, Build, and Deliver Projects

We establish long-term relationships with our clients

Success isn’t one moment at the end of project – it’s a habit that is repeated at every stage of the software’s life cycle.

Our software/solution development approach focuses on adding new features regularly, reducing risk & cost, and providing structure and transparency into the process…

 

We join our client and act as a Technical Partner focused on the satisfactoril success of the project, rather than as a contractor who is only building a one-off project. This approach allows us to build software with the futuristic needs in mind which enable us to form strong relationships with clients that last forever. Our long-term and forward-thinking approach is reflected in the optimal quality of our coding capabilities & final product.

An Agile Methodology Work Style.

The way software is designed Coded and developed had changed a lot over the passed decade. Traditionally, developing software required a lot of resources, time, money and passions.

 

Now, mainly due to high project-failure rates and a competitive software industry, more and more businesses and startups are looking for modern methods that reduce failure factor and increase the time-to-market.

An increasingly popular way to build software application is incremental modular and agile approach to deliver successful software final product, whereby software is built and released in modules.

 

We work in 3-week sprints whereby we aim to release new/improved features at the end of each sprint. We aim to release Minimum Viable Product (MVP) within 3-4 months.

Our software development process consists of 3 main stages –  Prototyping, MVP, and agile development.

Process

From prototype & design to development, testing and support, maintenance we provide quality services at each stage of the project’s life cycle.

Prototype

Prototype is an interactive work model of an application or platform. It’s the first visual representation of any project and the first stepping stone into minimum viable product (MVP) development.

Minimum Viable Product (MVP) Development

A minimum viable product (MVP) is a development technique in which a new product or website is developed with sufficient features to satisfy early adopters. The final, complete set of features is only designed and developed after considering feedback from the product’s initial users.

MVPs first emerged as a way to help startups get their idea in front of their target audience in the shortest time possible. But because of the early success startups gained by validating ideas and gaining feedback, MVPs are now also used in large software development projects. Infect MVP is not a minimum product, it is your project’s first working version and the first step in gaining your valuable feedback that will improve the product and shape-up its road map. However, there are many large companies out there that are hesitant on moving away from traditional, large-scale IT projects to a more agile and incremental development processes. But, there is evidence to support the claim that the MVP approach is the way forward.

 

The reason why startups failed was because there was no market need (42%) for their product, 45% Of all large IT projects exceed their budget and Small projects has success rate of 76% compared to a success rate of just 10% for large projects.

Agile Benefits in software development

Two most common project management methodologies are Traditional (Waterfall) and Agile. Project management is a critical part of the software development process. It ensures that each phase is executed correctly and that the project is planned well, implemented properly, and constantly monitored and controlled.

 

Traditional approach is linear and requires each stage of the software’s life cycle to be built one after other without the possibility of turning back to previous stages. On the other hand, the agile approach is well, agile. We do not strictly follow any one particular Agile method, instead we assess each project individually and choose the methods that will allow us to minimize risk, optimize the time spent on developing the application, and produce a working product as soon as possible.

 

Benefits of  agile approach:

  • Developers are able to foresee and react to issues and changes in requirements that may arise and set the project on a different, more effective course.
  • Working pieces of the software are released sooner, allowing you and your team/users to demo them and provide valuable feedback.
  • Software testing is carried out on every new component, which reduces the bugs and ensures that new pieces of code are compatible with the rest of the software.
  • Feedback and involvement from your side is encouraged, which provides more transparency and strengthens the client-developer relationship.

 

Note:
Truthfully there is no such thing “a completed software project”, each application or platform should be continually improved to meet the needs of the users. Once a project has been launched, we work closely with our clients to make sure alpha and beta testing goes smoothly all relevant pieces of feedback are collected during these two important phases.
