Sun Technologies adapts a Hybrid Methodology towards software development and testing. Based on past experiences with leading fortune 500 and fortune 1000 companies in developing applications and testing them, we have found that most IT organizations adapt a blend of Agile/ Scrum and Waterfall Methodology.
We developed a Hyrbid process so as to seamlessly integrate with customer's IT organizations and act as an extended arm to their software development and QA teams.
Agile/ Scrum Methodology:
Agile software development methodology is an iterative method of software development in a highly flexible and interactive manner. As part of our experience in software development and the use of different methodologies, we identified the challenges and started practicing Scrum. We have developed our own Agile Sun Technologies’ Process Framework, which covers all the aspects in the development of a successful solution. The key characteristics and benefits are:
- To satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software and thus lower the risk
- Welcoming changing requirements even late in development
- The process is tailored for each project to satisfy the specific needs of the client
The key to the agile process is its flexibility. At Sun Technologies, we recognize that a solution may only be a vision in the customers mind and that all requirements cannot always be thought out and planned at the outset. The process therefore requires constant interaction between Sun Technologies and the customer, to provide feedback from both sides about how the project is going.
Advanced Waterfall Methodology:
At Sun Technologies, we consider the various merits and limits and then choose an appropriate approach that will surpass or match our client requirements. The Waterfall life-cycle Model is one of the methodologies (but not the only methodology) we follow for software development.
Our software development process is compliant with the Waterfall model. The following development phases form the Waterfall model structure:
- 1. Requirement/ Conception
- 2. Analysis and Design
- 3. Construction and Implementation
- 4. Verification and Testing
- 5. Production
- 6. Maintenance
Theoretically, this method follows a certain sequence or phase and there is no iteration in the activities. The approach begins with capturing the business requirements from the customer, gathering system specification details, and passes through system designing, component designing, software development, system testing, user acceptance testing, support and maintenance. Importantly, each phase has its set of deliverables before the next phase begins to help the client assess the work progress.
Benefits of Waterfall Model:
- Simple and easy flow
- Each phase lays out its deliverable, followed by a validation process
- Excellent work progress tracking system
- Best option for smaller projects where business requirements are captured in advance
- Simple and feasible
- Includes a verification process to monitor and resolve errors
With the Waterfall Model in place, we at Sun Technologies develop high quality but cost efficient software solutions with effective functionality.
