We try to follow agile development practices when managing software projects. Agile provides us process framework that allows us to rapidly respond to our client's feedback and retain flexibility in the deliverable timeline. Every client and project is different so we adapt our processes to fit the project, rather than the other way around.
Frequent collaboration between the client and development team fosters productivity and project transparency.
As new or evolving requirements unfold during a project, the team can immediately adapt their approach to accomodate these changes.
Work is divided into small incremental deliverables, each of which provides value to the client.
Our code quality standards enable our software to be adaptable to future change. Oftentimes, software can be built too quickly and with poor quality, making maintenance or expansion of the system more costly than it should be. A well designed system built upon clean code can drastically reduces the cost of maintenance and extend the lifetime of your software.
Following principles of software craftsmanship makes development significantly more productive. This advantage is especially realized when onboarding new team members or those unfamiliar with the codebase.
Clean code is designed to be testable, and it is inherently easier to spot bugs. Doing so can avoid bugs before they make it to production.
A well-structured codebase is designed with extension in mind. Future modifications to the system will be easier and quicker than to a poorly designed one.
All software needs to be tested for defects. The earlier a defect is discovered, the less costly it is for the team to fix. Combine this with the fact that manual testing is error prone and time consuming. Automated tests are a solution to this problem: test code is written during the development process to exercise the codebase and continuously verify that the desired behavior is met. We believe automated testing adds value to the system and to the client.
Every manual test run incurs a fixed cost. The cost of automated tests is incurred up front during their development, but the overall savings are realized during the lifetime of the project. Automated tests can be run more quickly, more often, and with no additional cost.
Automated tests can be run much more quickly than a manual regression cycle. Also, fewer defects will be found before release since the same tests have been repeated throughout development. This can reduce the time to test a release candidate from days or weeks to minutes, leading to more frequent deployments with less prep time.
Automated tests are themselves a form of software; every test run repeats the same steps and verifications. Manual tests are error-prone and defects can squeeze through the process. Automated testing can give you more confidence that a passing test suite means you have reliable software. And this means a better experience for your end users.
Having an amazing, defect free product is not enough if it cannot be dependablly delivered to your user base. Smooth deployments can be taken for granted, until an error introduces a system outage or introduces defects. This can damage the perception of your product and cost you lost revenue since these issues are highly visible to your end users. Automated deployments reduce the risk of introducing errors into your production system, but there are a number of other benefits as well.
When deployments are automated, the results will be the same each time you deploy. Not only will this save the time necessary to deploy and configure existing servers, but it will also minimize the cost of scaling up your infrastructure on demand.
The automated deployment system does not just apply to the production environment, it can also be applied to development and QA environments. The team will configure and utilize the deployment pipeline during the development of the product, which will verify its reliability and save time on deployments throughout the development cycle.
Automated deployment allows you to push the latest version of your product to production at the push of a button. This can make it possible and less costly to have frequent deployments, so new features can make it to production as soon as development is complete.
Every client and project has its own unique technology requirements.
Compellotech has experts in a wide variety of technologies
and we strive to apply each technology where it best fits.
