The Software Development Process

Our software development process has been defined and fine-tuned over more than ten years, while working for customers located on 3 continents and operating in a variety of industry sectors. It follows an iterative and incremental approach and leverages various popular models and standards such as Agile (Scrum, Kanban, Test Driven Development etc.), IBM Rational Unified Process, ISO 9001 and CMMI.

The benefits you get by relying on our services include:

  • Highly effective, custom-developed IT solutions
  • Applications designed with compatibility in mind
  • Scalable and portable applications
  • Low risks with the software development projects
  • Simple management of the IT systems and networks
  • High return on investments in software development

Architecture & Design

One particular issue we address in this process is architecture and design. A strong expertise in this area not only reduces the costs of complex enterprise applications, but also diminishes the risk of choosing an architecture or implementing a design that are not the most suitable.
In this phase of the development process, our experienced software consultants can assist you with:

  • Feasibility studies for software systems
  • Conceptualization of the software system
  • Application design
  • Process optimization through implementation of software systems

Project Management

The project management methodology we follow is based on the PMBOK Guide, whose standards and guidelines we adapt to match our daily operations.

Our experienced project managers can prepare realistic plans for software development, using effective estimation of size and effort and execute the plans with special attention to productivity and quality. In this context, aspects such as risk management, alternative life-cycle models, development team organization and people management are of high importance.

The methodology consists of a set of inter-related phases, activities and tasks that define the project life cycle from start to completion. Regardless of the project’s stage, we take a number of aspects into consideration and follow certain procedures:

  • Project planning
  • Project monitoring and controlling (quality, time, effort and budget)
  • Continuous support to end users and continuous communication with our clients
  • Corrective and preventive actions
  • Peer review and suggestions for improvement
  • Quality management

Reliable and Controlled Results

Through continuous integration (build – deploy – test) we transform customer inputs (e.g. specifications, test cases, mock-ups etc.) into reliable deliverables (source code, deployments, documents, guides).
This process is shaped by principles of software quality, envisaging source code versioning, continuous integration, code reviews, automated testing, projects documentation and issue tracking.
Additionally, through the quality measurements we employ, we focus on aspects such as code coverage, code complexity and dependency analysis.
