Our comprehensive yet adaptive solution development approach includes multiple development methodologies dependent on the size, complexity, current level of solution definition and purpose of the solution being developed, and the culture and practices of our client.
Agile, Waterfall or Hybrid Development Methodology
Agile software development is a set of principles for software development in which requirements and solutions evolve iteratively through close collaboration between cross-functional and development teams.
It promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, and continuous improvement, and it encourages rapid and flexible response to change.
Waterfall which might be more properly called the “traditional”, is a linear approach to software development. In this methodology, the sequence of events is typically:
Solution Design and Specification
Construction and Unit Testing
Acceptance Testing including Verification and Validation
In traditional Waterfall development projects, each of these represents a distinct phase of software development, and each phase generally concludes with a formal review and ‘signoff’ before the next phase can begin.
Our Hybrid Approach employs more time up front than Agile visualizing and defining the solution.
The process starts with obtaining a comprehensive understanding of your business and software needs with a focus on user stories. Developers and customers agree early on what will be delivered in the development lifecycle. This makes planning and designing more straightforward.
An Agile approach is then employed for more rapid iterative development and deployment. This is the approach generally employed by Custom House unless other factors or client preferences suggest otherwise.
Our cloud-first development services help our clients rapidly construct and deploy scalable AI applications. We help enterprises and AI-based services providers we partner with build the next generation of software solutions and enterprise applications.
This is in part because it frees organizations from the complexities of maintaining costly legacy application architectures and allows organizations to invest in innovative business solutions instead of maintaining the technical underpinnings.
Custom House works with you to help you identify the potential, visualize what is possible, ensure the requirements are clearly defined for your priority initiatives, design and develop impactful solutions and high-quality user experiences, and manage software investments across their lifecycle to realize the 'imagined'.
We develop a custom AI solution built directly for your business and the hosting cloud foundation to make what’s possible, reality.
