Application development projects don’t move in a straight line. There are typically numerous twists and turns along the way, and organizations have to react appropriately in order to ensure a quality finished product. That’s why it’s important for organizations to work closely with their developers throughout the application development process, identifying and addressing any procedural changes along the way.
At Ocellus, our agile development process allows our developers to react to any necessary changes quickly to help create the best possible product. With each form of application testing, we identity and react to any possible issues that could affect the functionality of the software.
By taking an iterative and incremental approach, we make needed amendments to the software code while adding additional features and functionality along the way. Our SCRUM development philosophy allows the process to flow in an efficient cycle. Application releases are more frequent – we test concurrently and our integration is continuous.
Collaboration is a crucial component of any development project. It’s important for organizations requiring new software applications to work closely with developers. This process can only be successful if those tasked with making the software know exactly what they need to build. Often, that knowledge, while obtained at the beginning of the process, might prove to be irrelevant later on. Needs change, and agile development allows those building the software to adjust quickly and concurrently.
Without proper collaboration, application projects can suffer from a myriad of problems. Suppose a company needs a new software application to manage data and productivity, and once its delivered, the functionality doesn’t fit the business’ needs, thus resulting in an unsatisfactory product. The ramifications of a poor finished product could be dire. If a developer creates a component of an application that doesn’t fit with the client’s needs, it must be caught during the development process.
By working closely with our clients, we will ensure these issues do not go unnoticed. Ocellus’ agile development process can reduce business risks by integrating real-time feedback into its development operations. Our releases are simpler and more frequent, making it easier to receive relevant feedback. This helps ensure a stronger finished product that is not at risk of failing a client’s expectations.
Ocellus moves projects forward with timely testing and development.
While noticing and adjusting to any changes in customer needs is crucial, as it helps improve the overall quality of the application, the practice also carries with it a number of risks. Many projects are on strict schedules and cannot afford any setbacks that could compromise completion times. So, even though identifying and eliminating errors and making necessary changes on the fly benefits the overall product, doing so can run the risk of hurting completion as scheduled.
At Ocellus, we reduce this risk as well because we employ a highly trained staff dedicated towards meeting, if not exceeding, each and every one of our client’s expectations, including timeliness. Our developers have adopted best practices pertaining to productivity, operational efficiency and communication. We utilize a 24-hour development cycle so our clients can rest assured that their projects are always being worked on.
We believe in allowing our customers to get the most out of their software. We work tirelessly from start to finish to ensure every client enjoys a strong return on investment. Ultimately, the software we create is intended to improve our client’s businesses. Agile development helps us get there and allows customers to have a voice in how their software is ultimately created.
