Development Process

Software Development Process

Sevina Technologies differentiates our software outsourcing model from other ‘software factories’ based on the processes we follow and close interaction with the client. Sevina technologies fully understand the client’s necessity comprehensively and then give solutions according to our skills and experience.

Other software companies work process involves passing the work to another person or department without consulting them or coordinating with them. While Sevina technologies have a flexible software development model which helps to create a harmony with on-shore and off-shore both. Sevina technologies’ offshore software development team is responsible for the execution of the project at low cost keeping up the quality standards.

Software Development Methodology

Iterative Incremental Project Management Method

Iterative Incremental software development is based on combining various software development methods based on Waterfall and frameworks. In this method, the project development is divided into small multiple phases, subcategorized as tasks. After completing every phase, it passes on to the client for the review and changes. The time frame and phases of the project are based on the size and functionality of the project. Benefits from this method are:

 

  • Flexibility
  • Reduced risks
  • Ability to change requirements based on user feedback

 

Interactive stands for the repeated cycle and incremental stands for smaller portions at a time. In this development method, the project slices down into smaller portions called phases. Every phase is divided into more than 1 iterations. They are usually time-boxed rather than feature-boxed. Analysts work ahead of the development team to keep their product backlog full.

Agile Scrum Software Development

Scrum software development is very quick and smooth, thus named as the agile scrum development process. The scrum development process is very useful in complex projects.

In the Scrum development process, there are three roles exist. The first one is the product owner, the second one is the development team, the third one is the scrum master. For the product owner Communication is the key role. Therefore, a good product owner should communicate with the business about what they need, why they need and convey the information to the delivery team using some technical language if needed. The development team is made up of 2 to 20 members including designer, coder, tester and analyst. Scrum master’s key responsibility is to help the team follow the process to remove any distracting influences.

A sprint is the fundamental unit of scrum software development. Scrum is a timeline ranging from 1 week or 2 weeks. In the beginning, the team arrange a meeting and manually plan all the sprints according to the project attributes. At the end of the sprint, the team arranges sprint review and sprint retrospective. Backlog refinement also takes place throughout the development. The product owner can also extend or cancel a sprint according to the requirements. Benefits of this method are:

  • Ability to change requirements based on user feedback
  • Unified and highly motivated team
  • Transparent workflow
  • Customer-centric

Kanban Software Development

Kanban method is originated from the Japanese manufacturing industries which aim to minimize the waste and increase the overall productivity of the system. Kanban board is the key feature of the Kanban development method. Kanban board shows the progress of the project, which helps participants to get a view on the process. Kanban provides a method to continually adapt to smooth out deviations during the arrival of new development work. Benefits of this method are:

 

  • Maximizes efficiency with effective time usage
  • Focus on continuous delivery
  • Increased productivity
  • Responsiveness to demand
  • Visualize work in progress
  • Limit work in progress
  • Reduce multitasking
  • Improved focus and Cycle time
  • Feedback frequency increases
  • Improved quality

DevOps

DevOps is one of the widely used software development process. If we break it down, DevOps means software development (Dev) and information-technology operation (Ops). In this software development process, it needs continuous communication between the team. It showcases the lean approach and agile infrastructure of the process. DevOps is something like agile development, which contains 4 levels. The first one is valued, the second one is the principle, the third one is the method and the fourth one is practices.
