Software Development Methodology

Software Development Process

Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a framework that lays out the steps involved in software development at each stage. It assists us to contain a precise blueprint for developing, deploying and sustaining software. Our PMs identify software development processes in a precise and efficient manner, it provides the highest level of management control and documentation. Our software development processes are as follow:

Discovery Phase

Requirements gathering and analysis

During the discovery phase, a team of a business analyst (BA), designer, and project management (PM) collaborate to ensure that the requirements collection process is as efficient as possible. Ensuring that all pertinent information from the client is gathered in order to build a product that meets their needs. Any ambiguities are clarified in this phase. The team assesses the project’s feasibility and determines how to carry it out successfully while minimising risk.

Development phase

Design along with Frontend/Backend development

The previous phases lay the foundation for system development; the following phases ensure that the product functions as required. The development team gets to work based on the specification and design. All the components of the software are implemented in this phase. The primary activities involved in the development phase are as follows:

  • Development of IT infrastructure
  • Development of database and code

Testing

Full lifecycle testing is performed.

Testing cycle starts with the requirements stage and continuing through the release and deployment stages. During the testing phase, all parts of code are merged and deployed in the testing environment. QA expert then go through the Software Testing Life Cycle tasks to make sure the system is free of mistakes, flaws, and defects, and that the system’s features are working as they should. Retesting, regression testing is done until the point at which the software is as per the customer’s expectation.

Deployment

The system is deployed on the customer’s environment

When all modules are complete, a team consisting of a PM, BA, Developer, DevOps expert, and Team Lead works on deploying the system to the customer’s environment. The team configures, customises, tests, teaches users, and ensures that the system runs smoothly.

Depending on the customer’s expectations, the product is either deployed on the production environment or initially subjected to UAT (User Acceptance Testing). In case of UAT, a replica of the production environment is constructed, and the customer, in collaboration with the developers, performs the testing. If the customer is satisfied with the application, the customer must sign off for it to go live.

Maintenance

Quality Assurance period and customer support

During the maintenance phase, any necessary upgrades, adjustments, and changes are done to guarantee that the system continues to function and is updated to meet corporate objectives. To adapt to future needs, the system must be maintained and upgraded on a regular basis.

The main focus of maintainence phase is to ensure that needs continue to be met and that the system continues to perform as per the specification mentioned in the first phase.

“If Everyone Is Moving Forward Together,
Then Success Takes Care Of Itself”

Methodologies We Use

Agile Methodology:

“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.”

By creating the ideal environment, keeping our engineers motivated and engaged, and trusting their judgement and experience to perform the job, we ensure early and continual delivery of perfect software. For service-oriented projects, as well as code and design deliverables, we use Agile as our standard approach. When the client’s engagement is critical for development or when the product’s features and functions are not yet set, with room for refinement and adaptation, our teams use this methodology. We test and progress quickly towards the ultimate product by making small incremental changes while remaining flexible in the face of unforeseen circumstances and changes to the original plan.

SCRUM Methodology

We prioritise work quickly, split duties effectively, and time-box each component. Through sprints and iterations, we constantly revise and correct our course. One of the keys to our success is providing our outstanding engineers with organised and efficient supervisors. During complex projects, teams using this methodology, hold daily Scrum meetings, using the best available project management tools and software to keep track of pending and completed tasks. With consistent efficiency, our teams are able to re-prioritize work and reduce the product backlog by focusing on the three main questions during our Scrum Meetings:

  1. Since our last meeting, what have you accomplished?
  2. Until the next meeting, what are you working on?
  3. What is obstructing your progress?

Waterfall Methodology

Each phase of a waterfall mode (linear-sequential life cycle model), must be completed completely before moving on to the next. This software development paradigm is typically utilized for projects that are modest and have few ambiguous requirements. Although more Agile approaches to project management are gradually pushing back the Waterfall methodology, it still has strengths. Waterfall is still preferred by larger firms with a set of procedures and controls. It’s also useful for smaller projects with well-defined criteria and a stable product description. However, we only use Waterfall for projects when:

  • All the requirements are known, clear, and fixed,
  • The product definition is stable,
  • Technology is well understood by every team member,
  • The project has no ambiguous requirements,
  • Your organization possesses the necessary resources and expertise,
  • The projects are short.
Our PMs assist businesses and projects that meet the requirements outlined above in maximizing the benefits of the waterfall technique. Creating a timeline and assigning markers and milestones is pretty simple because the entire project is planned out in advance and all of the stages are obvious and easy to grasp by all members of the team. Creating a timetable and assigning markers and milestones is very simple because the entire project is planned out in advance and all of the stages are obvious and easy to comprehend by all members of the team. Developers also track progress with the help of clearly defined targets and milestones. Furthermore, The project’s destiny does not rest on the shoulders of any one team member while using Waterfall. Instead, the project’s extensive documentation, stable design structure, and broad scope allow it to continue working even if team members come and leave. The documentation bears the brunt of the design, which implies that all of the information remains within the company.

Kanban Methodology

Kanban is a framework that combines Agile and Lean concepts with additional Scrum characteristics. Kanban’s central concept is to visualize the development process. Utilizing this approach our team aims to visualize the workflow and identify possible bottlenecks in order to improve performance. Kanban may indeed be utilized in any knowledge work context, but it’s extremely effective when work arrives in an unpredictable manner and/or when you want to deliver your work as soon as it’s available rather than waiting for more work items to arrive. The following values are shared by our teams using Kanban to improve the services they provide:

Transparency – Freely providing information in plain, simple language enhances the flow of company value.

Balance – In order to be effective, diverse aspects, views, and talents must be balanced.

Collaboration – Kanban was designed to help people work together more effectively.

Flow – Work is a constant or intermittent flow of value.

Leadership – At all levels, leadership (the capacity to motivate others to act via example, words, and reflection) is required to achieve continuous improvement and provide value.

Understanding – To progress and grow, individuals and organizations must first understand where they are coming from.

Agreement – Everyone engaged in a system is dedicated to development and agrees to work together to achieve objectives while recognising and accommodating differences of opinion and method.

Respect – Valuing, comprehending, and showing concern for others.
