How we work: software solution development lifecycles

The choice of the software development model depends on the objectives of your project. Advantages of Agile and Fixed Cost include achieving the best technical solution, keeping within the budget and development terms. Each project is unique and often requires to utilize methods from both the Agile and Fixed Cost model.

Having carefully studied the requirements of your project, we will choose the tailored solution that is optimal for both parties.

Agile

Agile is a flexible development lifecycle methodology, that enables to implement continuous change requests to the software development process bypassing any negative impacts. This software development model consists of small cycles - sprints, at the end of which the result can be tracked and evaluated.

The Agile model is suitable for projects lacking detailed technical description requirements with the possibility of hypothesis testing.

Iterative development with repeated cycles ability. Sprint length lasts from 2 weeks to a month.

An iterative Agile development model suits you if:

Your project requirements are frequently changing, and you intend to make changes during the development process.
The developing project is quite large, long-term, and precise planning is impossible.
You are keen to actively interact with the development team and be involved as much as possible in the development process.
There is a need to deliver a MVP at the end of each sprint.
A quick project startup is required: minimum planning is sufficient at the initial stage.

Agile Development Stages:

Requirements gatherings

The customer: explains the business objectives and requirements, setting priorities.

Achievements: requirements and user interface models are clearly approved, budget and time frames finalized, contract signage.

MVP Design

The customer: evaluates the intermediate product version after each sprint, redefining the requirements.

Achievements: an MVP exists, clear view of the further product development direction.

Development

The customer: evaluates the delivered MVP, controls the development process.

Achievements: the tested release is ready to be implemented and/or deployed.

Deployment

The customer: developed software solution handover, participating in the software solution deployment.

Achievements: acceptance and sign-off, running software solution.

Maintenance

The customer: utilizes delivered software solution, makes change requests for software improvement.

Achievements: project support during development stages and post deployment maintenance.

Waterfall — Fixed Cost

Waterfall development model is suitable for definitive projects with clearly defined requirements, as it involves a sequential approach to each stage. The transition to a new stage is possible only after the previous phase completion. The waterfall model is characterized by a fixed cost, fixed in contract and a lack of change requests possibilities during the project stages.

The Waterfall model is suitable for projects with detailed technical specifications that do not require flexible solutions.

Detailed project definition, does not allow different requirement interpretations. The duration of the plan development is 3–6 months.

The Waterfall model suits your project, if you:

Require a convenient reporting system with the ability to track resources, time consumption and costs.
Have clear, defined software requirements and no intentions to make project change requests.
Satisfied with the product fixed cost and documented knowledge base.
Lack of opportunity to constantly be involved in the development stages.
Have no time or are limited in resources for the solution development.
