Our Software Development Process
We offer flexible engagement models and continuously adapt our development process to meet the specific requirements of your project
Whatever the requirements, we make it happen
Every business is unique. However, starting a new software development project can be challenging for any business. It can also lead to a number of unexpected costs and inaccurate time estimates.
At Aiolane, we always make sure that all aspects of our software development and testing processes are clear and transparent.
We also use proven industry methodologies (from traditional Waterfall to modern Agile) and flexible engagement models to meet your project's needs and build high-quality software on time and within budget.
Our Engagement models
Time and material model
Get maximum flexibility by paying just for the amount of work, tasks, and resources that were used during the development process.
Dedicated team model
Get full management control over a team of professionals who will work on your project on an hourly, daily, or long-term basis.
Fixed price model
Cut down on your costs and stay on budget by defining requirements, specifications, and the exact price of the project in advance.
Our software development process steps
The first stage is crucial since its outcomes determine the overall project's success, delivery time, scope, and budget. So, in this step, we gather and analyze every functional and nonfunctional requirement of your project, as well as estimate everything starting from terms and costs to delivery time. Every stage in this process is entirely transparent, so you'll be able to see the shape of your product as well as how much time and money the development process would require right from the start of our work.
Based on the Software Requirements Specification document, our experts will develop low-level and high-level designs, defining the look and feel of your future software product. This process involves everything from choosing the color palette and fonts to creating wireframes and a map of your application. In the end, you’ll get a design solution that reflects your brand identity and ensures a positive experience for your customers.
After you've approved all the estimates, you can decide whether your product requires an MVP (minimum viable prototype). This, however, is optional, so we can skip it and proceed directly to software product development. For most of our projects, we use the Agile (Scrum or Kanban) methodology, which guarantees the best results in terms of time and budget. However, you are free to choose whatever methodology you like—we always welcome new and innovative approaches. During this stage, we also make sure that you can watch every step of the process while our managers provide you with the most up-to-date information about the project's status.
Our test engineers run a series of automated and manual tests to detect and resolve any potential performance or security issues before your solution goes live. This step helps us ensure the high quality of your product and may include functional, performance, usability, scalability, security and penetration, integration, and other types of testing.
Once the software has been developed and completely tested, we move on to the deployment phase. We examine the platforms of our customers to make sure they're in line with industry standards and suggest changes before the agreed-upon deployment date. During this stage, we also conduct all the software and deployment tests to ensure that the final product meets all your business needs and project requirements. In the end, you get a fully functional software product. Hooray!
Once the product goes live, we continue to provide technical support by looking at customer feedback, evaluating the solution, and managing changes. We also provide both quantitative and qualitative metrics associated with technical support, such as the number of requests, the performance of pass-through, and the availability of capacity. You can also sign a service level agreement (SLA) with us and get a support team on a daily basis.
Key benefits you get
As a quality-oriented company, we make sure that every project has quality assurance throughout the whole software development life cycle. So, whether your business needs a new custom web app, mobile app, SaaS, blockchain solution, or other piece of software, we guarantee that the quality of our work will exceed your expectations.
Transparency is important in any kind of teamwork because it allows both the customer and the developers to see if they are on track and meeting all of the project's requirements. At Aiolane, we will keep you up-to-date and give you constant access to all of our task-tracking systems. This will make sure that the software design and development process is very open and transparent.
Strong project management
To make processes even more flexible, we take an innovative approach that combines the best aspects of Lean and Scrum methodologies. This helps minimize management work on your side and adapt development processes to your requirements. Furthermore, every stage of your project will be supervised by our CTO, who will make sure that all existing processes meet KPIs and that no changes are needed.
Our business analysts carefully examine each customer's case to find the best development method and engagement model based on the project's goals and requirements. Following that, we start putting together a team of experts with the right skills in order to bring the product vision to life and build a unique, high-quality IT solution.
