In order to establish an effective and comprehensive business system - it is extremely important that you ask yourself some very important questions like - how do you tack manage the system? How do you ensure that there are no procedural voids? How can you be absolutely sure that no software solution has been left out which can make the system even more useful?
Keeping at pace with the specifications of your project, including the budget and scope of it, MegaProSoft uses either a waterfall or an agile software model to deliver you the software solutions that you seek. Both these models have their own sets of advantages and shortcomings. Therefore, a learned and experienced analyst/project manager from MegaProSoft consults with you to inform you about the benefits and drawbacks of each methodology in context to your project. After this consultation, a decision about the methodology is made - one that would serve your project the best while abiding to your project, budget and timeline.
Traditional Waterfall Development Model:
MegaProSoft believes that this traditional waterfall development process is best suited for those projects where the software specifications are more or less stable and where requirements are not impermanent. The structured approach of this technique works the best for those projects that have a preset budget and timeline. Generally, the projects that use this method, have the longest time investment from the clients, especially during the initial stages of the project. The time investment is reduced in the design and development stage for only check points and approvals need to conducted. note that this model can prove to be risky for larger and more loosely defined projects; as the clients need to wait for the project to be completed to review and give feedback until the end of the project. MegaProSoft has found a way to effectively manage this shortcoming of Waterfall Development Methodology by dynamic wire-framing which guarantees:
- Organized and stable development
- Predetermined project specifications before design
- Well-managed timetables
Agile Software Development Model:
Agile Software Development is better for those projects which have constantly evolving set of requirements. Sometimes certain businesses have requirements that change so rapidly that they are already something else when the requirement gathering phase of the project gets completed.
At MegaProSoft we make the best use of this methodology by conducting collaboration and self-editing across several teams. there is a process of constant collection of product requirements at work which is done by an assigned Project Manager, often called “Scrum Master“ and this continues alongside development and testing. We use this process for those projects that require a more responsive process within relatively shorter turnaround times.
As end targets of these projects are more difficult to gauge, Agile Software Development model often has to deal with some uncertainties like:
- Project has no predetermined specs and can change
- Timetables are flexible and can change
- Budgets are open-ended
Basic Principles Behind Methodologies:
The methodology to be followed is an iterative and incremental (evolutionary) approach to software development and is performed in a highly collaborative manner. Some of the principles behind MegaProSoft's methodologies are:
- Customer satisfaction by rapid, continuous delivery of useful software
- Working software is delivered frequently
- Working software is the principal measure of progress
- Even late changes in requirements are welcomed
- Close, daily cooperation between business people and developers
- Projects are built around motivated individuals, who should be trusted
- Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design
- Self-organizing teams
- Regular adaptation to changing circumstances
