Overview of Software Development Process at Icidat

At Icidat, we tailor the software development process to your specific business needs to deliver high-quality software on time and within budget.

Agile

The Agile methodology allows us to release reliable software fast and introduce changes easily. The development process consists of 1-4 week iterations resulting in an evolved version of software shipped each time. After each iteration, we get real user feedback that drives informed decisions on the next development steps.

Software Development Process Steps

1

Business analysis

Our business analytics elicit your business needs, turn them into prioritized software requirements and help elaborate on the concept of your software.

2

Software development process and management

In every project, we design UX and UI, build a future-proof architecture as well as run coding, integration and deployment processes. We take care of the overall project management and regularly report to you on the development progress.

We suggest going for iterative development, as it enables to launch the first version of software in just 3-4 months, and then get it further evolved every 1-4 weeks.

3

QA & testing

We keep up software quality with continuous testing, starting from unit tests and code reviews done by our developers to functionality, performance, usability, integration, compatibility and security testing by our QA team. A reasonable amount of test automation helps us speed up software delivery and minimize the number of missed bugs.

4

Risk management

We define and estimate risks related to the project budget, delivery time, cybersecurity, new technologies and personnel. Then, we prepare a mitigation plan for each risk, monitor risks and report to responsible project stakeholders to keep all parties informed about existing risks and their states and ensure the consistency of risk management actions.

5

Change management

We review the required software changes with all parties concerned, analyzing how the changes will impact software business logic and adapting it accordingly before any change implementation.

6

Project delivery

Upon the delivery of the project, our customers receive:

  • Turn-key software.
  • Documentation (technical requirements and design).
  • User manual.
  • Setup program.
  • Installation and maintenance instructions.
  • Source code.
  • Warranty.

Our customers retain full intellectual property rights over software.

Upon software completion, we offer maintenance and support services to help continuously improve software.
