Enterprise Services

Web Application Development

We have extensive experience in the architecture, design and development of robust, secure and scalable web applications. We have worked on dozens of projects and most of them have seen the entire lifecycle from requirements gathering to go-live. We have strong expertise in both server-side development as well as client-side development. Our expertise in server-side technologies include C#/.NET, Java, Python and PHP. Our client-side experience includes AngularJS, ReactJS, KnockOut JS and JQuery.

Application Maintenance & Support

It is usual for enterprises to have several applications that need ongoing maintenance as well as feature enhancements. We have helped several enterprises with their ongoing activities. Our team’s strength in requirements analysis allows us to understand the business use-cases of existing applications. Also, our strength in software development allows us to quickly understand existing code, and be able to enhance it or fix bugs in the code. This gives customers an anxiety-free experience of handling the lifecycle of their existing applications.

Cloud Migration

It’s frequently seen that enterprises have existing applications that they would like to move to the cloud. We help customers in the following ways:
Understand the current application to see how it’s been architected.
Prepare a cloud-deployment strategy for the application
Make changes to the application architecture and code to make it suitable for cloud-deployment.
Study existing data and prepare a data-migration strategy and scripts so that the data can be moved to the cloud.
Move the application along with migrated data to a staging environment in the cloud. The users can test it at this time.
Once the staging environment looks good, move the application to the production environment on the cloud along with the migrated data.

Software Quality Assurance

Software development project teams have a QA team to work alongside it to ensure good quality of deliverables. Also, there are times when customers need independent testing teams to work on the QA activities to ensure rigorous and unbiased testing. We provide separate Software QA service to our customers, independent of our software development teams. The QA team members are experienced in both manual and automated testing. Each such Software QA team will be led by a project manager and will also have an analyst to thoroughly understand the current application’s use-cases that need to be tested.

Our Approach to Project Execution

1. Requirements Discussions

We work closely with you during this phase and spend time with you to understand what you are intending to develop. Subsequently, we perform a diligent analysis of the software requirements. This helps bring clarity on the unstated and subtle requirements as well as identify potential conflicts or contradictions within the requirements. We also identify any ambiguous or missing requirements at this stage. We believe this is the most important phase of the software development cycle.

2. Scoping based on first-things-first approach

Once we complete exploring the requirements, we next move to scoping the work. In this phase, we take a critical look at each requirement and label them as those that are necessary for the current release of the application and those that could be moved to a future release. This is a very important exercise that prevents feature-bloat in a given release and also ensures cost optimization and also enables an early go-live.

3. Milestone Schedule

Once the project scope for the current release has been identified, we divide the project requirements into multiple milestones with each milestone having a meaningfully-related set of requirements. We publish the milestone schedule at the start of the project. What this means is that right at the start of the project you know exactly when to expect which requirement. This gives you adequate time to prepare for testing the milestone releases as well as plan early demos for your customers or end-users.

4. UX/UI Design

In this stage, we provide you with UX/UI design for the application that’s based on the contemporary design standards. The UX/UI design of an application is a very important part of the application development process. Visualising the application much before it is actually developed plays a very important role in giving you an idea of what the application will look like and how it will work. This helps you validate it against the requirements you have had in your mind. It also provides you with an excellent opportunity to put it in front of your customer or end-user to seek their early feedback.

5. Software Architecture and Design

Our team has vast experience in software architecture and software design. We avoid over-engineering. We strongly believe that simple and elegant software architecture and design delivers manifold cost benefits to you over the long-term both in terms of future enhancements as well as ongoing maintenance of the software. The architecture needs to be robust, secure and scalable.

6. Software Development

Our architects design the software that enables our developers to adhere to the design philosophy while they innovate in their code to meet the feature requirements. Our developers are enthusiastic about coding and they love to deliver well written code to you.

7. Software Quality Assurance (QA)

Our QA team ensures that the product features work according to the requirements so that we can save time by avoiding rework and go-live as planned. The quality assurance team is skilled in both automated testing as well as manual testing.

8. Customer Testing in Sandbox

We deliver each milestone release onto a sandbox environment on the cloud. This enables you to test the milestone release. You could also use it to demo the application to your end-users or customers.

9. Production Deployment and Go-Live

Once the final milestone is complete and deployed on the sandbox, you can test the entire application in the sandbox environment. We help you with creating a strategy for the production deployment of your solution. While you are testing the final application in the sandbox, we use the time to plan for the production deployment, migrate any data onto production, and keep the production setup ready on the cloud. Once you are satisfied with the sandbox testing, we deploy the application onto the production environment. Once the application is deployed in the production environment, we also set up the initial set of data relevant to production. At this time, your customers or end-users can begin using the application.

10. Ongoing Support

Once the application goes live, we support you with any help your customers or end-users need. If there are any unexpected issues that crop-up, we work promptly to address such issues.

Post go-live, we discuss with you the next set of feature enhancements that need to be incorporated into the application. At this time we follow the process as we did earlier. We first begin with requirements analysis. We then move to scoping and milestone identification before moving to design and development. And finally, go-live of the new features.
