Delivering Agility with Scrum and DevOps
Our development practice uses Lean and Agile development processes at the very core of our service offerings. Thus offering best value while mitigating risks at all stages of development. Our reliance on modern DevOps and Continuous Engineering approach to software development offers agility, quality and saves time to market. Based on Continuous Delivery, Continuous Innovation and Continuous Learning our DevOps systems cover People, Process, Tools for automated and efficient collaboration amongst DevOps, Business, Consumers, and other Stakeholders.
Our Agile Project Management Process.
Our highly collaborating agile project management in the cornerstone of our track record of consistently delivering projects on time and budget. Our proven approach focuses careful planning where the project is analyzed to the minutest detail. And broken down into work backlogs and work sprints are planned around them for efficient execution of the project. Our process ensures the following:
1. Priorities (product backlog) maintained by a dedicated role (product owner)
2. Development process and practices facilitated by a dedicated role (Scrum master)
3. Sprint planning meeting to create a sprint backlog
4. Time-boxed sprints producing potentially shippable output
5. Mutual commitment to sprint backlog between the product owner and the team
6. Short daily meeting to resolve current issues
7. Sprint review meeting to present completed work
8. Release planning to release product increments
9. The code is written to agreed standards
10. No functionality is added early
11. Refactor whenever and wherever possible
12. All code must have unit tests
13. All code must pass all unit tests before it can be released
14. When a bug is found tests are created
15. Acceptance tests are run often
Some of the benefits are
- Faster Releases: Make your customers and users happy by consistently releasing the features they’ve been demanding.

- Faster Recovery: Always be prepared for an issue to arise. When they do, faster recovery time means less money lost and fewer angry users.
- Lower Time to Market: Faster time to market results in lower overall costs and higher return on investment.
- Improvement in code quality with continuous testing.
- Short and frequent releases for quicker time to market.
- Faster time to market with efficient sprint from proof of concept to release.
- Continuous improvements with tight release management leads to greater flexibility with fewer mistakes
We rely on standards
We work with set processes in all 3 areas of web design and development (Graphic Web Design, HTML Interface Development and Web Programming). These processes with are adopted at various stages over last 9 years are based on hard-learned lessons and absolute must in success of any web project.
Our collaborative custom web design and graphics development process is discussed in detail in our web design section. We closely follow Web2.0 design patterns, W3C and WCAG web accessibility compliances for our website, application design, and content architecture to deliver aesthetics with usability.
