We use the Agile approach on the strategic level to address our clients real needs and challenges, because it emphasizes collaboration and tangible results. By following the best practices in creating, maintaining and delivering software projects, we aim towards performance, ingenuity and quality. In that way we optimize the time spent on developing the application, decrease business risks and quicken time-to-market.
With ISTIVNE clients are involved in development process both for project input, selection of tasks and validation – with all the help needed to translate the business language of needs and challenges into the engineering language of code and design. Such highly collaborative approach helps us to take advantage of teamwork and enables us to deliver successful solutions.
Here at ISTIVNE, our development process begins with Rapid Prototyping, then moving on to building Minimum Viable Project, and then continuing development and supporting the project post-release. By adopting an agile approach we achieve measurable goals at each stage of the project’s life cycle.
Before starting work on each release, we coordinate with the product owner the inclusion of features, fixes, enhancements and services. Eventually these work items are distributed across the 4-6 sprints. The final sprint is just for tests and measurements of finished tasks. Duration of our sprints depends on the needs of the project, but we strive to make them just long enough to finish meaningful work – and declare it done.
Our approach process
We believe that during this process no stone should be left unturned. So what we will be doing with you?
We need to establish what business goals do you have, what are you trying to accomplish with mobile application. Do you want to increase customer satisfaction? Or maybe improve performance of your employees? Full clarity about these goals helps us to design fundamental aspects of software we will be building for you.
By involving our team in your business processes, we get the proper insights in the business aspect of this project. That way we can offer you key indicators to define progress of our work and ways to check the project’s development. With viable roadmap and clearly defined phases of work, we can give you the confidence of completing the application on budget and on time.
A lot of questions involving software can be answered by creating a rapid prototype. Such interactive, working model of application works as the visual representation of project and helps to communicate general guidelines.
Minimum Viable Product (MVP) is much more than prototype. Its first working version needed to get the feedback from initial users, test the product against market needs, make the corrections to the roadmap and budget. By building a MVP, we can help you validate your ideas and minimize the business risk.
To create a software which meets your needs, during our sprints we refine designs, develop code, fix bugs, write documentation, run application in the test enviroment and after all of this – get acceptance to deploy.
This phase involves final system testing, final acceptance testing, finalization of ducmentation, training of end users and preparing the support procedures, deployment of release candidates – and the final push to the app stores.
All work needed to maintain working solution, support users, identify defects and make enhancements is included here. We’re here to ensure that application is a help to you and not a hindrance.
