Arixess always makes sure that its development methodology is interactive and customer-centered: we understand the customer’s needs and offer a rare combination of speed and reliability at an impressive price to quality ratio.
To achieve that, we constantly fine-tune our business processes and implement the best industry practices, combining the benefits of Agile and Waterfall methodologies, flexible distributed teams with versatile skillsets, and a variety of modern technologies.
Nowadays, the complexity of development projects keeps growing. More often than not successful development depends on effective collaboration of many actors: tech and non-tech companies, as well as field-specific consultants bringing their unique expertise and perspectives.
Distributed teams can be an enormous resource for competitive advantage: they ensure fast development, scalability, flexibility in access to diverse knowledge and skillsets once they are needed.
However, there are some necessary conditions for this approach to work well:
Arixess has solid experience working in distributed environments. We know how to maximize the benefits and run the development process fast. We take care of the routine, while the customer enjoys both the process and the product.
This classic Agile approach is mostly used in relatively small teams of 3 to 9 members. It minimizes the overhead of the process and maximizes the time spent to get the useful work done.
Kanban is a scalable Agile approach that originated in the Japanese automotive industry. We use it for larger teams, big enterprise systems, complex tasks involving large volumes of legacy code.
If the budget for the project is set and control of the budget is one of the client's top priorities - waterfall is the best options by far.
Waterfall model is the best fit if the project duration is relatively short and the technology is well-understood.
Waterfall model is the best choice for those who do not plan to change requirements a lot after the development has begun.
Each phase has specific deliverables and a review process and as the result, it is more attractive to those who want to manage directly.
Our project managers act as a focal point for all your project-related needs. Project managers are involved in the entire project lifecycle to plan, organize, control and deploy key milestones, deliverables according to your goals. Plus all Arixess's projects are supervised by our CTO, who is responsible for processes audit and enforcement, as well as for measurement of existing processes against established metrics and process improvements analysis and implementation.
Here at Arixess we pay special attention to the discovery phase to ensure that the final product fully meets your expectations. Iflexion’s Business Analysts define easier ways to attain what you need, while Project Managers identify the most suitable development methodology and cooperation model, as well as assemble the most effective project team, and the tech experts work on technical feasibility and select the most efficient technologies.
We have an independent QA department responsible for providing quality assurance throughout the entire Software Development Lifecycle of every project. Depending on the size of the latter, we allocate a testing team and define a QA timeframe, which allows us to optimize involvement and project costs. Though independent by virtue of their duties, our QA experts work in close cooperation with our development team.
Since our inception in 2009, we have been building up a knowledge base by working on hundreds of development projects. We have absorbed the best approaches to achieve maximum performance and the highest quality when delivering projects, avoiding redundant complexity that affects both budget and timing.
We embrace DevOps to ensure the synergy between development and operations by paying close attention to key pain-points in your DevOps needs and automating end-to-end delivery processes while ensuring scalability and security of your infrastructure.
Transparency enables us to see at a glance, whether we are on track to meet the goals or blocked in one or more direction, and eliminate these blockers. That is why right at the project launch we agree with you on a communication plan tailored to your needs to work on different levels – from core team to management stakeholders.
