Software Development at Ultimate Softwares

The Scrum approach divides the work process into equal sprints – they are usually time periods from a week to a month, depending on the project and team. A sprint is always limited in time (1 to 4 weeks) and has the same duration throughout the entire product life. When the sprint is over, a new working build of the product is ready. Sprints are very convenient for comparison and allow managing work efficiency.

In turn, retrospective meetings allow keeping everything under control. The team creates artifacts in Scrum. They are special objects which help the team manage their work and launch a working product

The team regularly updates artifacts based on changes occurring in the market, feedback, or new ideas.

For visualization, Scrum uses boards: physical and electronic. The board is used to make the project more transparent, to plan the tasks and set limits. This approach is crucial when the team has no formal leader. The board is divided into columns. Each column is a task stage (“Development”, “Testing”, and “Release”). The number of columns depends on the project, but the fewer the better.

Each methodology solves its particular problem. Consequently, the choice always depends on the goals you pursue in each particular project.Scrum is a good choice for nontrivial, long, and complex projects developing in the process; >when it is better to develop the product stagewise; no one knows precisely what is necessary, but in the end, the clients want to get what they need and not what turned out; startups, as it allows you to avoid spending several months creating a solution, but quickly launch the MVP (Minimal Viable Product) and quickly enhance it after feedback from users is received; when everyone knows that some components of the future product and priorities may change in the development process (new ideas appear, new opportunities are discovered, the customer appears to have other needs).

Our Office
01

Time Efficiency

We plan our work in a way to deliver the specified scope on time and are capable of working with tight schedules.

First Things First

We minimize management efforts on the customer’s side while providing a high level of transparency over the development process and proactive risk management.

02

Clear Documentation and Knowledge base

Our customers have constant access to our task-tracking systems, such as Jira, and a knowledge base where we document all project-related work.

Second Step

Evaluating a customer's satisfaction with cooperation to learn how to improve it further.

03

Self-management by objectives

Tracking the trend behind the speed and amount of work of a team completes per an iteration to plan workload.

Third Step

Controlling development cost-effectiveness to keep a project from going over-burdget.

Software Development Process Steps

1

Business Analysis

Our business analytics elicit your business needs, turn them into prioritized software requirements and help elaborate on the concept of your software. .

2

Software development process and management

In every project, we design UX and UI, build a future-proof architecture as well as run coding, integration and deployment processes. We take care of the overall project management and regularly report to you on the development progress. We suggest going for iterative development, as it enables to launch the first version of software in just 3-4 months, and then get it further evolved every 1-4 weeks..

3

QA & Testing

We keep up software quality with continuous testing, starting from unit tests and code reviews done by our developers to functionality, performance, usability, integration, compatibility and security testing by our QA team. A reasonable amount of test automation helps us speed up software delivery and minimize the number of missed bugs.

4

Risk Management

We define and estimate risks related to the project budget, delivery time, cybersecurity, new technologies and personnel. Then, we prepare a mitigation plan for each risk, monitor risks and report to responsible project stakeholders to keep all parties informed about existing risks and their states and ensure the consistency of risk management actions. .

5

Change Management

We review the required software changes with all parties concerned, analyzing how the changes will impact software business logic and adapting it accordingly before any change implementation.

6

Project Delivery

Upon the delivery of the project, our customers recieve.

  1. Turn-key software.
  2. Documentation (technical requirements and design).
  3. User manual.
  4. Setup program.
  5. Installation and maintenance instructions.
  6. Source code.
  7. Warranty.

Our Customers retain full intellectual property rights over software.

Upon Software Completion, we offer maintenance Support Sustenation to help continuously improve.

Development Approaches We Follow

Agile

The Agile methodology allows us to release reliable software fast and introduce changes easily. The development process consists of 1-4 week iterations resulting in an evolved version of software shipped each time. After each iteration, we get real user feedback that drives informed decisions on the next development steps. Note: Although the Agile approach is viable in many cases, we can also adopt Waterfall and other approaches depending on a customer’s objectives. Check out our overview of all possible software development life cycle (SDLC) models.


Devops

With an established DevOps culture at ScienceSoft, we streamline software delivery and improve its quality with the following DevOps best practices:

  1. Infrastructure as Code (IaC): automating the creation of new infrastructures and keeping them consistent with each other to ensure smooth software deployment.
  2. Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery or Continious Deployment (CI/CD): automating integration and deployment of code changes.
  3. Automated testing: automating regression, performance, and other types of testing that are continuously carried out within the CI/CD pipeline.
  4. Application performance monitoring: configuring application performance monitoring tools to detect post-release bugs quickly.


Scrum Development

“Scrum is a framework for developing and sustaining complex products.”Scrum is an agile framework for developing, delivering, and sustaining complex products, with an initial emphasis on software development, although it has been used in other fields including research, sales, marketing and advanced technologies.But really really, Scrum is an answer to another software development model called Waterfall. In Waterfall, all of the features of the ordered product are delivered at once, as a whole package. You may design and order a piece of software, let the developers do their work, and then receive the finished product a year later. We aresure you can see the potential problems with Waterfall. It sounds convenient at first, and is the superior choice in some cases. But a lot can change during a year.


Cloud Native Development

When building applications in the cloud, we take advantage of reduced software development and operation costs, easy scalability and access to advanced cloud services that enable implementation of cutting-edge techs (AI, IoT, data science, and more)..


Modular Architecture

We use modular architecture patterns, such as microservices, in combination with containers to develop applications as a suite of independent functional components that can be effortlessly ported to any environment. Such an approach ensures higher application reliability, better maintainability and expandability, as well as shorter development time.
