Project Management Practices

We know that nothing is constant; business trends, technology and even consumer needs in due course evolves. Therefore, DI Infotech’s Management practices do not stick to a single methodology; we in fact continuously apply latest technological developments to meet client’s expectations and the ever-growing market’s challenges. Our Project Execution follows three principle methods: Agile, Waterfall and Prototyping, which are designated depending upon the nature and scope of project and business requirements.

Agile

What is Agile?

Agile Model is an alternative to traditional project management, where the approach aids developers to minimise risks and respond to unpredictability through iterations. Iterations are miniature software projects, where the basic client requirement keeps changing. They are simpler, consistent yet detailed versions of the modelling software that comprises of values, principles, and practices. Agilists apply the modelling software in development projects in a more flexible way.

How and When DI Infotech Employs Agile Methodology?

Any project that is risk-laden could be developed through Agile. What is a risk laden project? It is when a scope and requirement of the project is not clearly defined or it’s when a project’s earlier developed version does not attune with the evolving market trends and challenges, the project evidently falls in the risk laden category. Our Agile development team follows a step by step approach, where we collaborate with our clients in each process; from planning, designing to coding and testing we ensure that each process is in tandem with our client’s necessities.

By doing so, we reduce the development time and increase client’s ROI by providing a compact but better developed software venture.

Our principles when working with the agile methodology:

  • Customer satisfaction at the paramount level. Offer uninterrupted business resolutions and flexible and frequent delivery of software solutions.
  • Delivery of project development following short time boxes approach (weeks instead of months).
  • Quick response to changing requirements and market challenges, and develop project accordingly.
  • Schedule meetings between clients and DI Infotech team to discuss pros and cons, project development, share suggestions and improvise quality.

We use productive Agile approaches such as Adaptive Software Development, Scrum, Agile Unified Process and Test Driven Development for project development of dissimilar business requirements across several industrial domains.

Waterfall Model

What is Waterfall?

The Waterfall approach is highly compatible with projects requirements and scope that are clear and detailed. The waterfall model also follows a step by step approach with a chronological development process where, like waterfalls, the development progressively flows downward. The model is also referred to as Classic Life Cycle Model or Linear Sequential Model.

When And How DI Infotech Incorporates Waterfall Model?

DI Infotech adopts a sequential development approach where project execution is evaluated phase by phase. Development process in each phase has its own run time, without overlapping the next phase. The Waterfall Model goes through 7 – 8 phases, namely:

  • Analyse client requirements and specifications
  • Conceptualise a design based on gathered information and data
  • Implement the created design in to developing the software
  • Test and integrate the developed software application
  • Project presentation to client
  • Get feedback and reviews from clients and make necessary changes if need be thereafter
  • Conduct back end operations, project delivery and maintenance

A strict project guideline is maintained which our developers adhere to eliminate or minimise errors during the project developing stage. After each stage, the developed project goes for a review. These reviews are vital for successful execution of final phase. The Waterfall methodology suits well with small scale projects.

Prototyping Model

What is Prototyping Model?

Prototyping approach is considered best when one or some parts of project scope are not expressed elaborately. Here our developers build an application prototype assuming the initial project requirements which is then presented to the client. The prototype helps client refine their requirement until the actual application takes shape. The prototyping model is based on the trial and error principle where the iterative process takes place between the end users and developers.

How and When DI Infotech Employs Prototype Methodology?

DI Infotech builds a simpler and less complex version of the actual application for client review and processing. The prototype model approach is deployed by us only in situations where the process needs, structure of the application, the development module, the input, the system features and effectiveness are not clearly stated in the beginning of the phase 1 of project development. Our prototyping model enables our clients to build better products with continuous changes and rectifications as it helps them to refurbish more efficient software. Product development, based on this approach, highly relies on customer feedbacks that eventually empower us to shape a comprehensive system. Our developers start by building a basic prototype with minimal features from information gathered, and present it to the client. The clients evaluate the prototype and ask us to refine with subsequent changes. Usually, more than 2 refining stages take place to engineer a complete and all-inclusive product.
