A bright idea, strong strategy and in-depth marketing knowledge may still not bring the required results unless organizations pay attention to high development quality and innovative development practices. We believe that software development should not be restricted to only code creation and project delivery. It is inclusive of an accurate comprehension of the client’s requirements and business goals and, on the basis of this comprehension, recommendations of a cost-effective solution with a fine blend of technology. We are well conversant with the classic software development life cycle and equally adapted Agile methodology.
A & B is a pioneer in collaborative software development methodology. Herein, the client retains its own onsite team, and A & B’s offshore team becomes an extension of this onsite team. These two teams collaborate to attain a common goal. A & B will streamline and synchronize the processes essential for this collaboration.
We have a thorough understanding of the challenges encountered during software development in various technologies and the established processes and practices required to attain success. To choose the optimum process for projects, we consider points such as type, scope, complexity, technology, and timeline.
During a typical software development life cycle, we adhere to the following practices:
A & B acquires the scope of the project and prioritizes the requirements as the first step. We conduct feasibility study and risk analysis for the project. We create Functional and non-functional requirements document, which contains security and performance requirements too. Through the entire life cycle of the project, we trace and document the changes in requirements of the project through our change control process.
We believe that creating a working prototype helps to collect further requirements from the stakeholders and also enables them to comprehend the system.
Our technology expertise and architectural services capability, helps broadly through prototyping, selecting tools, technology, and framework. Prototyping exercise considerably decreases requirements and design errors, including errors for user interface.
Architecture and design
Our design team is well equipped with extensive knowledge and understanding of industry-standard architectures and best practices. We reuse designs through various design patterns which yields faster implementation and easy maintenance.
We create well structured programs, which have fewer errors, reusable and are easier to maintain. Reusability decreases the overall development time of the project and increases the quality of the product. We use, industries best coding standards, with comments. Out development team practices test-driven development approach.
Review and verification
We believe that error prevention is better than error rectification. This implies that code reviews result in significantly increased productivity, quality, and project stability. Therefore, our construction phase is composed of review and inspection of design and code. During review, if some issues are identified, we amend them. To avoid repetition of identical errors, we share the learning across the team.
Testing and Quality Assurance
Testing is an integral part of the software development process. Our project plan is accompanied by a test plan. We develop test cases during the designing and coding of an application.
To ensure that the delivered system is of the best quality, we promote positive and negative testing. The basic principle behind these activities is that ‘formal testing can show the presence but not the absence of errors’.
