Overview of Software Development Process
At BOP, we tailor the software development process to your specific business needs to deliver high-quality software on time and within budget.
Development Approaches We Follow
The Agile methodology helps us release reliable software quickly and introduce changes rapidly. The development process of 1–4-week iterations results in an evolved version of the software shipped each time. After each iteration, we receive honest user feedback that drives informed decisions on the subsequent development steps.
Note: Although we adopt the Agile approach is viable in many cases, we can adopt Waterfall and other techniques depending on the customer’s objectives.
With an established DevOps culture at BOP, we streamline the delivery and improve software quality with DevOps best practices:
- Infrastructure as Code (IaC): automating the creation of new infrastructures and keeping them consistent to ensure smooth software deployment.
- Continuous Integration or Continuous Deployment (CI/CD): automating integration and deployment of code changes.
- Automated testing: automating regression, performance, and other testing methods carried out continuously within the CI/CD pipeline.
- Application performance monitoring: configuring application performance monitoring tools to detect post-release bugs.
When building applications in the cloud, we exploit reduced software development and operation costs, scalability and access to advanced cloud services that allow the implementation of cutting-edge technology’s (AI, IoT, and data science).
We apply modular architecture patterns, namely microservices, in combination with containers to develop applications as a suite of independent functional components that can be ported to any environment. We ensure shorter development time, higher application reliability, better maintainability, and expandability.
How IT Partnership with BOP Works?
Our business analytics elicit your business needs, turn them into prioritized software requirements and help elaborate on the concept of your software.
Software development process and management
We design UX and UI, build a future-proof architecture, and run coding, integration, and deployment processes. We oversee the project management and share regular reports on the development progress.
We suggest iterative development, as it enables to launch of the first version of the software in 3-4 months and evolving it further every 1-4 weeks.
QA & testing
We ensure software quality with continuous testing, from unit tests and code reviews performed by our developers and QA team to functionality, performance, usability, integration, compatibility, and security testing. Our test automation helps us speed up software delivery and minimize missed bugs.
We define and estimate risks related to the project, such as personnel, budget, delivery time, new technologies and cybersecurity.
We prepare a mitigation plan for each risk, monitor the risks, report to the project stakeholders about existing risks and their status, and ensure the consistency of risk management.
We review the required software changes with all stakeholders, analyzing how they impact software business logic and adapting them accordingly before implementing them.
Our customers retain the full intellectual property rights over the software and receive the following:
- Turn-key software.
- User manual.
- Setup program.
- Installation and maintenance instructions.
- Source code.
Upon completion, we offer maintenance and support services to help improve the software continuously.
