software development process

At AWATA, we follow the FDD or RAD or JAD that are experienced by us as successful software development processes. Depending on the project we follow any of these methodologies in mutual consultation with the client. Our development plan, in general, includes the key steps as Requirement Gathering, Software Design, Coding, and Testing. Along with the client, our Business Analyst / Project coordinator does the scoping and sign-off documents once a project is taken up. We will then come up with a document to brief how we are going to kick off the project, which summarizes the results of the Project Initiation stage and recommends the steps to the next stage.

After this the Technical Team Lead, will split the broad features into smaller modules / tasks and finalise the milestones for each of these modules. The priorities will be finalized in consultation with the client. Usually these will be loaded in a Project Tracking Tool that will be accessible to all stake holders of the project.

AWATA's On-site Coordinator (if any) or off-site manager will track the development activity and measure the velocity of the team using standard estimation procedures. This helps the Project Manager / On-site coordinator to set the expectation with the client on what he can expect in the coming weeks and months. This enables the client to control and alter priorities based on business priorities.

Communication during development

As a software development company, we work with clients abroad in different time zones. The clients do not see us face-to-face. So it is very important for us to communicate clearly with our clients and expect the same from them. We achieve that via emails and pre-scheduled conference calls.

We strongly suggest clients to use GIT for software version control. Based on our experience we have found that GIT has evolved a lot and is matured enough for large enterprise applications. We have found it to be really easy, fast and efficient.

Being so versatile open source software can be used in almost any situation, from desktop applications to cloud computing servers, which can often entice businesses down the path of a wholesale open source migration. The savings, flexibility and versatility of open source software are simply too good to miss out on.

At AWATA, we have handled many Open Source projects. We are dedicated to supporting Open Source and offer a variety of services. We have the ability to implement, configure, support and optimize a wide assortment of Open Source technologies.
