What is Agile?
Agile modeling (AM) helps to minimize risk by developing an application in short time boxes, called iterations. Each iteration is like a miniature software project of its own. Here the requirements may keep changing. An Agile model is accurate, consistent, detailed, simple and comprehensible. It is intended to be a compilation of values, principles, and practices for modeling software that can be applied to a software development project in a more flexible method than traditional modeling methods.
We follow AM for all risk-laden projects especially those that do not have clearly defined requirements and where the early version of developed software may face evolving market challenges. We reduce development time, deliver responsive software solutions and work in tandem with our clients to better market their products and better meet their growing demands. Following a systematic process of execution, we move from planning –> designing –> coding –> testing.
Our underlying principles for adopting AM are:
- Ensuring customer satisfaction through continuous delivery of workable software solutions
- Developing software and delivering solutions in short time boxes (in weeks than months)
- Continuous collaboration among team members to successfully execute the projects
- Responding to change requirements quickly to counter market challenges
- Conducting regular meetings to discuss the improvements, suggest new additions and betterments
Our product engineering team has been successfully delivering quality solutions to clients with dissimilar business requirements using a set of productive agile methods, namely Adaptive Software Development, Scrum, Agile Unified Process and Test Driven Development.
What is waterfall?
Waterfall model is also known as Classic Life Cycle Model or Linear Sequential Model. It is most suitable when the requirements are clearly defined. Here a one step at a time approach is followed. The waterfall model is a chronological development process where development is seen as flowing steadily downwards like a waterfall.
We follow waterfall model especially for the small scale projects. Here, a sequential development approach is adopted to judge the phase-by-phase progress. Each phase in this framework runs naturally, one next to the other without overlapping. We start from requirement analysis and specification, creation of design essentials, implementation, to testing and integration. We then welcome partner feedback, bring the necessary changes, and move toward operation and maintenance. Project guidelines are strictly followed to ensure accuracy and to correct errors in every development phase.
