Our Software Development Approach
Agile Requirements Engineering
Understanding the needs of a customer involves meticulous research and close collaboration. At Ultra Tendency, we take an in-depth approach to requirements engineering, navigating the intricacies of different stakeholder needs to create a clear and comprehensive picture.
We leverage methodologies such as Business Process Model, Notation (BPMN), and Unified Modeling Language (UML) to visualize these requirements. This holistic understanding forms the foundation of our work, enabling us to segment requirements into manageable, prioritized tasks, or user stories, ready to be executed in our agile process.
Best-in-class Software Architecture
We harness a derivative of TOGAF to conceive and establish four distinct architectures: Business, Technology, Deployment, and Security.
The Business Architecture lays out the strategic direction, which then informs the design of the Technology Architecture, creating a roadmap for developers.
Next, the Deployment Architecture is crafted, outlining software deployment strategies.
Finally, in collaboration with security experts, a robust Security Architecture is developed, ensuring all necessary security standards are met. This systematic approach empowers us to create solutions perfectly synchronized with your business objectives.
Agile Planning, Development, and Testing
We deliver projects using agile development methods, primarily Scrum, with teams of up to eight developers. We work with clients, collecting requirements in the form of epics or user stories and prioritizing them in a backlog. User stories are assigned to developers during sprint planning and are implemented within a two-week sprint by our Scrum team.
We adhere to a Definition of Done (DoD), ensuring that user stories are fully developed, compiled error-free, covered by unit tests, integrated into a version branch, and thoroughly documented. Upon completion of a sprint, the implemented increment is prepared for deployment.
For larger projects with multiple teams, we use a scaled agile approach like LeSS or SAFe, depending on customer preferences. We manage system landscapes using a DevOps process and utilize Kanban for operations teams and Scrumban for organizing change and problem tickets.
Quantitative, Metrics-based QA System (ISO/IEC 25010:2019)
Quality assurance is paramount in our development process. We adhere to the ISO/IEC 25010:2019 standard, which presents a comprehensive suite of quality measures for software products.
This allows us to quantitatively assess the quality of our software throughout the development process, making necessary adjustments to maintain high standards and meet your expectations.
Secure and Professional Deployment and Operations
Finally, we understand that the creation of an exceptional software solution is not the end of our journey.
Our team ensures a secure and professional deployment and operations, aligning with relevant regulations and your specific security needs. Leveraging tools such as Terraform and Ansible, we automate deployment and configuration processes, enhancing the efficiency, speed, and security of your software solution.
With Ultra Tendency, you can trust that your assets are well protected, and your software operations are in good hands.
