The Process Makes The Difference
When it comes to software design, agile has a specific meaning, “a method of project management that is characterized by the division of tasks into short phases of work.” This all sounds nice, but it isn’t easy without having the processes and team to make sure it happens. This is where Spud’s methodology and proprietary processes come in.
Spud has a proven process that has evolved with the last 25 years of working with clients of all sizes and industries. Learn more about our 4 step approach of Define, Design, Develop and Deliver below.
Step 1: DEFINE.
Make no mistake, the Define Phase is the most important part of our process. We learn about your business goals and objectives. After that, we can get to work and make it happen for you.
Requirements engineering is a multi-faceted process, driven by a close analysis of your business and its systems. We come up with the formula to ensure your project’s success well into the future.
Step 2: DESIGN.
Where expertise, creativity and great communication meet. Once we have the big picture, understanding and key requirements, we work on the design of your project including the deployment road map. We design your project to meet your business requirements, timing and budget.
Step 3: DEVELOP.
We roll up our sleeves and get the job done. Moreover, we continue to keep you involved in the process, ensuring your satisfaction with the end product.
Communication, ever-present during the “Define” and “Design” phases, is especially critical now. We communicate with you as things progress. Our founder Derek Sommer says, “I’ve never had a client call me and say, ‘Stop telling me what is happening with my project!’”
Step 4: DELIVER.
Next we deploy to production. It might be just a single release or the entire project. Either way, we make sure that everyone involved understands what is going on, what is expected of them and, if there is training required, we can handle that as well. We don’t stop here. If needed, we begin work on any new updates or changes that came up after the development phase. In conclusion, Spud is always here for our clients.
