Development

Success of every software development project depends on constantly ensuring improvement of standards, processes, models, and awareness of pitfalls. It also includes a defined process and effective teamwork with the client, which are both crucial for the quality of the deliverables and overall success of a software development project.

With the combined force of our experts within our development team, Ecalon IT will take firm control of the entire life cycle of your software development project and make sure your most complex ideas and needs are implemented in the end product.


Processes

The development process includes not only the actual writing of code but also the preparation of requirements and objectives, the design of what is to be coded, and confirmation that what has been developed has met objectives.

Ecalon IT believes that software development is the process of creating software through successive phases in an orderly way. Depending on the project, we can provide the following phases as single or packet:

  • Identification of required software
  • Analysis of the software requirements
  • Detailed specification of the software requirements
  • Software design
  • Programming
  • Testing
  • Maintenance

  Models

Software development methodologies are used to structure, plan and control the development process of software solutions. But with several models to choose from, each one with its pros and cons, the choice becomes essential for fulfilling your organizational and project needs.

Our development team will adopt the most appropriate one for the project or combine the models to obtain the best end result. Our team's profound experience with software models includes e.g.:

  • Waterfall
  • Spiral
  • Agile
  • Rapid Applicaiton Development (RAD)
  • Iterative Development
  • Prototyping
  • Code and Fix

  Organization

One of the most insidious mistakes in IT development, is when a project gets focused on the technology being implemented and not on the business. That is why IT organizations have been in transition for at least the last decade, moving from a technology focus to a focus on business processes, relationships and delivery.

Our organizational structure and division of responsibilities permits fast execution of complex projects with the initial focus on the business and not the technology and consists of the following roles:

  • Product Manager (Business)
  • Architect (Technology)
  • Project Manager
  • Developer
  • Quality Assurance & Test

  Setup

The Monitoring and Controlling process oversees all the tasks and metrics necessary to ensure that the approved and authorized project is within scope, on time, and on budget so that the project proceeds with minimal risk.

Ecalon IT does not ignore the importance of a solid development setup where the purpose is to keep the customer, team and management satisfied and up to date on the project's progress, therefor our setup resides on:

  • Project Management
  • Version Control
  • Documentation
  • Development / Test Environment
  • Risk / Resource Management
