Software Development Lifecycle
Project management for software development demands high level of commitment and training within the company along with re-evaluation of existing phases to successfully adapting to the modern development conventions. Our aim for every project that we work for is to deliver high quality services in reduced time. Our software development lifecycle (SDLC) is effective to achieve success by producing high-quality system that not only meets but also exceeds customer expectations. We also focus on achieving the effectiveness for our development process and the end product with efficient infrastructure within the planned scheme, which does not violate cost constraints and is accurately achieved. Following SDLC as our methodology enables us to stay focused to each phase of software development. It effectively produces deliverables required by the next phase in the life cycle.
- Stage 2- Analysis takes place for the design to take shape.
- Stage 1- Planning of the process derived from the client requirements that are translated into design.
- Stage 3- Design is produced for to shape the architecture of the software product. Both high level and low level designing is done for precision at all levels.
- Stage 4- At the development stage, code is produced matching the design.
- Stage 5- Testing and Integration of the software takes place for rectifying and correcting different defects.
- Stage 6- Implementation of the design takes place at this stage.
- Stage 7- Deployment and Maintenance is the last stage of the SDLC where actual implementation of the software takes place.Our deployment and maintenance experts are available dedicatedly to support post implementation services as per the service level agreement (SLA).
We have embraced Agile Methodology to deliver high quality services in reduced time and attain our set business objectives within the stipulated time. Our adopted agile methods at execution level are as follows:
Scrum runs on the primary principle of working on Sprints which lets the teams focus on a set of features to achieve repetitively in fixed- length iterations of dedicated weeks varying from one to four weeks. At Sphinx Worldbiz we ensure to regularly meet with the teams headed by certified and experienced Scrum Masters in order to make progressive updates on the task at hand along with issue resolutions.
Kanban is a method for managing the development of products with emphasis on continual delivery while ensuring to not overburden the team. This process ensures to help teams work more effectively. It promotes continuous collaboration and supports active learning for organic improvements within the team workflow. It is based on three prime principles:
- Visualizing the workflow and seeing all the items in context of each other.
- Limiting the amount of work in progress to help balance the flow-based approach to allow teams to not stuff themselves up with too much work at once.
- Enhance the flow of the process and once one thing is done, the next most important task is pulled from the backlog.
At Sphinx Worldbiz, we embrace Kanban when work priorities change very frequently but our motto of achieving nothing but the best remains.
EXTREME PROGRAMMING (XP)
Extreme Programming (XP) is an agile development framework targeting at providing longevity to the software and its development teams by using dynamic engineering practices such as test driven development, automated testing, pair programming, etc. We embrace XP when the work needs short iterations ranging from one or two weeks. It is a rather specific framework when appropriate engineering practices for software development are concerned. XP becomes most relevant in the following circumstances while software development:
- Dynamically changing client requirements
- Risks caused by fixed-time projects due to new technology
- Small, co-located extended development team
- The technology you are using allows for automated unit and functional tests
