Koombea’s Project-Based Development Process
At Koombea, we utilize our own unique form of Agile development to efficiently and effectively create world-class software products for our partners. Our software development process can be broken into four distinct phases.
We work closely with your business throughout every phase to ensure that the development process’s end result is a product aligned with your organizational processes and goals. Let’s look at the four phases of our Agile development process.
Developing a successful software product is an iterative process that starts with product ideation and discovery. At Koombea, we are more than skilled software developers. Our team also includes skilled business analysts and product managers.
We work closely with your business to ensure that your app idea reaches a maturity level that is aligned with the goals of your business and the expectations of your target audience. Partnership is vital to the development services we provide at Koombea.
We will take the time to understand what makes your business unique, the specific challenges it faces, the competitive landscape, industry trends, and more. A successful software product should meet the organization’s desired objectives and fully represent the brand.
Do you have a clear idea of where your product is going? Developing a product roadmap is vital to the success of any software development project. Part of our Agile development process is creating a product roadmap.
A product roadmap will include key details such as what type of technologies will be used in development, what the software’s architecture will look like, and when critical deadlines will be set. Without a product roadmap, it is easy for a development project to stagnate and go over budget.
Development and Iteration
Throughout the development phase of our process, we iterate. Sometimes the only way to arrive at the best possible version of a software product is to iterate through QA testing and user research.
Before your software product is deployed, we ensure that it passes through a rigorous testing regimen designed to find bugs, errors, and other areas of improvement. We aim to address issues as soon as they are identified.
Not only does this ensure our Agile process runs efficiently, but it also ensures that fixes take less time to implement. Every aspect of your software will be tested and potentially iterated before final deployment.
Maintenance and Support
Most organizations think development ends with deployment. However, they are missing one of the most critical aspects of software development, support and maintenance.
If your app is successful, which is the ultimate goal, support and maintenance will be the longest and most involved part of software development.
Koombea is here to ensure that your software product continues to run smoothly, make optimizations, and offer the technical support every application requires.
The Benefits of Project-Based Development Services
Why is the project-based model so popular with businesses? There are several key benefits organizations enjoy with this development model. The top benefits include the following:
Unexpected costs drive businesses crazy and make planning future initiatives difficult. Project-based development involves agreeing upon a fixed project price before the project begins.
At Koombea, we will work with your business to understand your product requirements and negotiate a fair price based on the required work. Software development projects can quickly get expensive when there is no set budget.
Project-based services give your business a precise cost that can be planned and budgeted.
In a project-based model, the development scope is tightly defined before the start of development. Koombea will work closely with your business to define the requirements, specifications, and ultimate scope.
With a well-defined scope, your business can feel confident that its priorities will be met. In addition, when the scope of the development project is clearly defined, your organization can confidently budget for the project.
One of the greatest benefits businesses enjoy from project-based development is a transparent schedule of deliverables and deadlines. In a project-based setting, your business should know exactly when key milestones will be completed and when the project will be delivered.
Koombea will establish a transparent schedule before development begins and provide regular updates and communication about the progress of development. Some businesses like to be more involved in the process than others.
At Koombea, we welcome your feedback and collaboration. However, we also understand that you have a business to run and can’t always be involved in the minutiae of software development. A transparent schedule helps keep the project on track and budget.
