Cubet Technologies follow Agile Development in delivering the right product at right prize to our clients. Agile methodology is an approach to project management, typically used in software development. It helps teams respond to the unpredictability of building software through incremental, iterative work cadences, known as sprints. This is one of best ways for getting the desired software developed with the key factors.
- Faster development time – so you can get to market ahead of your competition.
- Lower overall cost – so you can meet your budget needs and keep overhead down.
- Focus on the right solution – so you get exactly what you need and want.
- A minimum of your time – so you can be part of the development process, without taking too much time away from your business.
Our projects build software incrementally; typically use short iterations of 1-4 weeks, to keep development aligned with changing business needs. So, instead of a single pass, 3-6 month release that predicts all requirements and risks upfront (which can rarely happen in the ever changing business world), Agile adapts to frequent feedback by delivering working, tested code every 1-4 week iteration. The scope is estimated and allowed to evolve to stay aligned with the needs. The delivery team commits always to work on highest value features.
The development team is structured to have a cross functional team with following roles – Product Owner, Technical Lead, Developer, Tester and SCRUM Master. After initial scoping and iteration planning, the team works in iterations to deliver user stories (features/use cases). The team plans stories into their iteration based on each story’s priority and size. The priority of the user story is determined by the product owner in close consultation with the client. The team uses their capacity (how many ideal hours available to work on tasks) to decide how much scope to plan into the iteration.
Following are the major activities involved in an agile project:
- Scope Estimation: Listing the User Stories (Use Cases/ Features) and Prioritizing them. This is handled by the Product Owner in close consultation with the client.
- Iteration Planning: Iterations are planned by identifying the user stories to be delivered in accordance with the iteration cycle and the resource availability. The technical lead, along with the developers and testers, provides the commitment for delivery. Depending of the project size, the iteration duration may varybetween 1-4 weeks.
- Task Breakdown: Each user story will be broken down into identifiable tasks. Each task shall take between 2-4 hours for completion. The completion of user story is tracked through the completion of the tasks.
- Client Feedback: Every iteration will deliver a tested working piece of code, to be reviewed by the client. The client feedback is taken care in the subsequent iterations. Any risks can thus be identified during the earlier stages of the project.
The goal of agile development methodology is to reduce software waste and deliver Software that accommodates change. It demands disciplined project management and commitment from the delivery team and also close association of the client in the entire development lifecycle ensuring timely feedbacks which could be incorporated in the development lifecycle.
