Software Design & Development – Proven Processes Drive Quality Results
All too often software development projects fail, exceed budgets and schedules or don’t really work to meet users real needs.
Ellumen has a strong history of meeting schedules, staying within budgets, and exceeding our customer’s expectations. Our winning approach comes from our direct market experience and our ability to tailor best practices to meet your specific project goal.
We have adopted a “product” versus “project” mentality when it comes to planning and executing software development projects. It is important that a product serve the purpose for which it’s designed.
We start any software building effort with the architecture. We recognize that the end product must be useful and fit both the actual work-flow and processes in which it’s used and the technical and systems frameworks which it must operate with and in.
We apply modern iterative development techniques such as the Agile development methodology, and are committed to an approach that shows early results and involves the users along each step of development.
Integrated means our software development methods do more than focus on software design and development. We employ a total systems engineering approach. Understanding and incorporating IT architecture, hardware, operating system, network and security impacts and possible constraints is important to project success. We also employ a team approach that fully integrates engineering support functions such as configuration management and testing into our software development process from the outset of any project.
