At Antares, we use a customized Agile Methodology and work in short “iterative” development cycles that typically last two to four weeks. As each iteration begins, we work with you and decide together the features and requirements that have the highest value to your business, and which of those will be delivered at the end of the iteration.
At the end of each iteration, we will demonstrate the product and get your feedback. Our goal is to deliver a system of increasing functionality every few weeks. You may choose to put these systems into production, or just review the functionality and report any changes. This short development and feedback cycle empowers you to be in charge of the functionality and direction of your project.
Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances our agility.
To effectively manage this project, the following steps will be applied:
Applying these processes will provide for proper control over the project’s execution, particularly in the
area of scope management, as ineffective scope management isrecognized as one of the major causes
for project failure.
Documents produced and forms completed and signed during the application of the project delivery
management processes will be retained in a Project File. This Project File is the repository of project
management information that will be reviewed at the end of the project.
Quality Assurance testing is the process of seeking out and identifying defects in software applications. Software defects can be introduced into the application at any stage of development. Defects can be the result of oversights, misinterpretation, mistakes, etc. on the part of the development team.
Quality Assurance testing is crucial in the software development process. By ensuring a software application is meeting specified requirements we provide customer confidence, confirm our company's reliability as a vendor, reduces warranty support time and costs, and the end result is a quality application for our clients.
Structured and systematic testing is essential to the development of quality software products. Antares utilizes a full-time quality assurance manager and analysts to oversee the testing process. Defect tracking software will be used to safeguard against reported defects not being addressed.
