Software is not just about writing code. It involves adhering to modern software development best practices. For the project's success, it needs to be well tested and be able to adapt quickly based on the demands.
CRE8IVELOGIX has over five years of experience helping partners write quality software. We offer an entire software development cycle from requirements gathering to building ci/cd pipelines to automate software releases. We use agile methodology for software development, so our partners get quicker feedback on our work.
The key to the success of a project is the ability to have quick feedback on the work and be able to iterate on it if it does not fulfill the requirements. Agile methodology provides the necessary foundation to execute on the above premise.
Modern-day software needs to evolve by introducing new features or enhancing existing features based on the changing requirements. Traditionally organizations used the waterfall software development process to orchestrate the software development process. In a waterfall strategy, requirements are gathered and compiled upfront. The software is then developed end to end and delivered after several months.
In contract agile software development process focusses on short 2-4 week sprints with a focus on delivering working software at the end of each sprint. This process reduces the feedback loop, allowing stakeholders to change requirements if the market needs change.
Agile offers the following advantages over the waterfall process.
One essential agile manifesto is to focus on constant collaboration between stakeholders and software engineers. If there is a lapse in requirements, they can be clarified and incorporated quickly.
Agile is an iterative process, so there is no need to develop detailed requirements for the whole project. Requirements can be gathered along the way, and any lapse in requirements is discussed and clarified during the iterative process.
Agile focuses on building software in short sprints. At the end of each sprint, the completed work is demoed to the stakeholders. If the deliverables satisfy acceptance criteria, they are accepted, and the feature is considered complete. Else the requirements are updated and incorporated in the following sprints.
Agile focuses on delivering working software during each sprint. Therefore sprint produces a working software that can potentially be released to production. This necessitates a continuous deployment pipeline that verifies the software before release.
Agile focuses on automation, so every line of code is covered by automated tests. As no manual steps are involved in verifying software, team productivity is considerably improved.
