DSoft Technology implements an Agile paradigm using sprint architecture with three phases: staging, development, and wrapping. With the customer's involvement during the staging phase, product vision is established and software features are identified. The team prioritizes each feature with the customer and estimates the level of effort for each. The product backlog, consisting of prioritized software features, gives the development team a solid foundation for establishing a sprint backlog for the development phase. The product backlog gives the team and the customer a clear understanding of what has to be done to produce a desirable product.
In an Agile paradigm, every aspect of software development is continually revisited. When a team stops and re-evaluates the project direction every two weeks during sprint reviews, there's time for corrections. The inherent flexibility of Scrum-managed teams maximizes the team's ability to deliver quickly and respond to emerging requirements.
We subscribe to a Scrum approach to SW team technical management, which is an iterative, incremental framework (sprints or workload period) for project management and Agile SW development. The process employs a Certified Scrum Master leading the sprint planning using an in-house tracking tool called Agile Sprinter™, frequent, short meetings, inherent team collaboration, and team member accountability.
DSoft's Agile Sprinter™ is used to manage our Agile development process modeled using the Scrum process which is an iterative, incremental framework (sprints or workload period) for project management and incremental software development.
