Development

To achieve defined goals and results within deadlines and budget, development methodology plays an important role. Here at m4yours, we understand, design, plan, implement and achieve your project objectives with the perfect development methodology matching your needs.

There are various development methodologies practiced in the market. After detailed discussion with clients, we hand-pick the best suited development method focusing on their requirements. As one of the market leaders, we worked with a number of global businesses across diverse verticals by using scientific and mature development procedures. This results into high quality software and solutions at an affordable cost and meeting strict deadlines.

Agile Methodology

Our Agile Methodology surfaces innovation, building foundation for a quantitative leap

Agile methodology is a time-boxed approach wherein every step is predefined and well-planned. This development approach is usually bifurcated into phases with time duration to complete each phase. To put it simple, a big task is divided into smaller modules or steps to deliver the final product. It is a well-thought and carefully drafted approach to meet the objectives of the client and leverage the software in the existing ecosystem at the client side.

In this model, there is usually a designated point of contact at the client side as well as at our side to coordinate and communicate to drive the process to achieve the goal. This model suits best the situation wherein scope of work is pre-determined and each phase is critically analyzed and bifurcated till project release. This needs highly planned and streamlined environment and project strategy.

Scrum Development

Emphasizing on communication and collaboration with flexibility to adapt to emerging business realities

Scrum development is a part of Agile software development framework for managing software applications development or software projects. Derived from the method in rugby football, scrum refers to a united approach of restarting the game after a small infringement. Contrary to the traditional approach, this project management framework helps the team to move ahead through a series of sprints or iterations.

Unlike other working methods, Scrum enables teams to work faster with any technology and programming languages particularly with, Web 2.0 or new media projects. Thus, it is considered to be one of the ideal and unique delivery model for complex requirements and aggressive deadlines. In a formulated management methodology, roles are specifically defined and the process is strictly applied. However, Scrum offers a framework within which the team can take various decisions as and when required, rather than subscribing to a timeline.

Thus, Scrum gives a holistic and flexible development strategy enabling a development team to work as a unit by working closely. From their very first sprint, they commit to each other and diligently move towards a common goal.

M4yours, with this new approach provides great benefits to clients by giving the control of the value stream back in the hands of the customers. Additionally, Scrum development allows quick delivery of scheduled tasks compared to other traditional approaches and gives the client the flexibility to change project specific priorities and requirements at ease.

It is evident that organizations using Scrum are transforming into more satisfying work-places while delivering more customer satisfaction compared to others. This development cycle improves communication among the team by increasing productivity and decreasing wastage of time. As a result, it produces superior-quality and highly valued results that too within reduced time to market.

Test Driven Development

Making the process simple with automated test case for enhanced development

Test Driven Development (TDD) is another Agile software development process that depends on the repetitive short development cycle. To make the process simple, the developer initially writes an automated test case to define a desired improvement. Later, develops minimum code only to pass the test and eventually refactors the latest code to the acceptable standards. Thus, Test Driven Development inspires confidence by advocating simple designs and solutions.

TDD improves the quality of the team’s extensive verification resulting in better testability and extensibility in line with the project requirements. Unlike the traditional approach, Test Driven Development requires frequent running of tests throughout the development process. This follows a ‘loop back’ flow of information from the developers to the system under development and again, back to the developer.

Test Driven Development helps organizations to make easy changes to their applications without breaking the application and their daily operations. This is because, these testing modules are built into this continuous integration development models.
Get the m4yours advantage by unique test coverage and streamlined codebase which can be easily maintained and is extensible. Other great benefits of TDD that you can only get in Hidden Brains are clean interface, and executable documentation aided with refactoring process which encourage improvements.

Test-Driven Development gives our clients the power to update their software easily to address new business needs or other unanticipated variables. It is the methodology that enhances the flexibility to add new functionality and make changes in technical infrastructure.

Waterfall Methodology

Making the development process linear and sequential

Waterfall Methodology is considered to be one of the most popular version of the systems development life cycle model for software engineering. This model, which is often considered as the classic approach to the process life cycle enables the development method linear and sequential. This methodology comes with definite goals for each development phase. Just like the natural waterfall on the cliff of a steep mountain, in this process once a phase of development is completed, it proceeds to the next phase without any turning back.

This popular methodology among many IT companies also helps clients to set a schedule with deadlines for each stage of development for final delivery of projects on time. Besides, it allows swift flow of development process from concept, through design, implementation, testing, installation, troubleshooting, and ends up at operation and maintenance.

Applicable for large-medium-small businesses alike, this methodology gives no or very less scope of changes with clearly defined understanding and functionality. In simpler terms, it can be said that Waterfall is considered to be the perfect solution when all the requirements are clearly defined to meet a defined deliverable.

Get the waterfall development advantage from m4yours that allows managerial and departmental controls. Clients can get the wholesome benefit of Waterfall Methodology. It saves them time during the implementation phase by capturing design errors even before any software is written. Besides, Waterfall Methodology comes with a host of benefits. It gives an excellent technical documentation, which is a part of the deliverables. This enables the new programmers to accelerate their speed of development easily during the maintenance phase. With this structured approach, measuring the progress of the project becomes simple by reference to defined milestones.

M4yours offers Waterfall approach to the customers as the total cost of projects can be accurately estimated after defining requirements through functional and user interface specifications. This model also makes testing easier as it can be conducted by reference to the scenarios defined in the functional specifications.

Spiral Methodology

Determining the objectives and alternate attempts for fast project delivery

Another popular software development process that combines elements of both, design and prototyping-in-stages is the Spiral Model. It is built to combine advantages of top-down and bottom-up concepts. Spiral Development Model is also known as, Spiral Lifecycle Model. In other words, it is a Systems Development Method (SDM) which is intended for large, expensive and complicated projects.

Ideally, the Spiral method has four major stages. They are: planning, risk analysis, engineering, and customer evaluation. Each cycle starts with a planning stage to determine the objectives, alternatives and hindrances of a particular project. This initial stage also defines the customer requirements for large and mission-critical projects. The next stage is risk analysis, which examines the alternate attempts to identify and resolve potential risks. Later, comes the engineering stage which includes, prototyping, developing and testing the products. Finally, comes the customer evaluation phase where the client assesses products.

M4yours understands the various advantages of such delivery model to gain maximum client gratification. This model helps in continual development by managing emerging risks. Its flexibility in design allows changes to be implemented at different stages of the project. The easy process of creating large systems in small segments makes it easier for cost calculations. Spiral model also involves clients at each step. Thus, the clients get the control over the direction and implementation of the projects.

An ideal for complex and mission critical projects, Spiral methodology gives the clients approval and documentation control. It also gives the flexibility to impart additional functionality at a later date and that too quickly and more efficiently.
