40ENTERPRISE has worked out a methodology of software development by taking the best from Unified Process (UP), Microsoft Solution Framework (MSF) and ISO 9001:2000 standards. Our specialists also possess extensive experience of applying Agile techniques (Scrum, XP), so we can easily fit with our customers' development processes.
Microsoft Solution Framework
This methodology of software development can be applied for any IT project, in which more than 4-6 people are involved. Project groups are built as small multi-purpose teams, members of which share responsibility and complement each other’s areas of expertise.
MSF is a symbiosis of iterative and cycle development approaches. Flexibility and free communication are encouraged.
Finding the correct balance between resources, development time and opportunities is the key point in building an efficient solution, which meets the customer’s needs best – the so-called "trade-off triangle". Motto of MSF: we do not deal with risks — we manage them.
Project requirements are often changing dynamically, and our teams have flexibility, experience, and knowledge to follow your company best practices.
Agile software development is a group of software development methodologies based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams. The best technical solutions, design and architecture are worked out by a self-organized team.
The manager passes certain responsibility and decision-making power to the team, relying on the fact that the group will make a more feasible decision than an individual. Neither the manager nor the team-leader takes independent decisions within the delegated responsibilities. It contributes to adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery, a time-boxed iterative approach, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change. Methodologies: Scrum, XP.
Besides the well-recognized techniques our specialists use their own development process approach which can be easily modified to serve every customer's business needs. Methodologies applied can be an effective tool if introduced approached with creatively and comprehension, in order to make the project flow efficient and transparent for the client.
We adapt methodologies to suit our needs or use only fragments or concepts applicable in a particular project. We include additional project factors if required by the project environment. This approach leverages our teams' broad and deep experience for the most efficient software delivery to our customers.
