We Design and Develop IT Applications that Just Work.
We focus on four Core areas of Application Development.
We cutting-edge skills backed by strong resources. From client-side-scripting technologies to server-side technologies, we deliver mission-critical projects.
We uses several models such as Iterative, Waterfall, Agile and Maintenance models for its development processes. The model is selected during the Project planning phase and depends on:
- Requirements: Clarity, Changes during the life of the project, etc.
- Stage of Involvement in Development Life Cycle
- Need for Rapid Development, Co-Development, Cross-border development, etc.
Product Development Process
Ideaon uses methodologies such as the iterative, waterfall and agile development methodologies for product development. Presently at the Ideaon ODC, all these development methodologies are in use for various clients.
Frequently Ideaon uses the Discover, Design, Develop and Deploy model (4D) also for development. A snapshot of this model is shown below.
Maintenance Support Process
Projects that involve maintenance of existing products (including bug fixing and minor enhancements) do not encompass major design changes. These projects usually have a recurring lifecycle. There is no definite logical completion of these types of project. They are ongoing in nature and usually last through the end of the product’s life. Source code control and testing the impacts of changes are some of the critical issues relating to maintenance projects.
We follow a phase-wise approach to product maintenance beginning with Knowledge Transfer and leading to ongoing maintenance. Teams work towards providing increasing value as the engagement progresses. Please see the illustration below.
