CUSTOM APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT
all START'S With One IDEA...
PABM is driven by a single common goal — enabling our clients to hit their target through the latest technology and advanced tools we know how to leverage, improve, or create.
Throughout the project, progress status will always be transparent and available to the client through web-based project tools for version control, feature and bug tracking, and content and knowledge management.
• PABM practices continuous integration so the latest code and project status may be inspected by the client at any time.
• Upon the client’s request, PABM can switch to the resources and tools preferred or established on the client side.
Phases and Iterations
Depending on the project specifics or the client’s requirements, the phases might switch the order, run in parallel, be skipped or repeated. Each phase may consist of several iterations.
An iteration is a period of time within the project timeline that has a fixed objective and a defined deliverable — both discussed and approved by the client in advance. Unlike project phases, iterations have a fixed order and cannot be interchanged or omitted. This allows streamlining the process and maintaining a logical step-by-step order of activities.
PABM delivers artifacts at the end of each iteration. These may include applications and data, source code, installation packages, documentation, etc. All deliverables (from source code to working installation and user’s guides) are 100% alienable — the client does not depend on PABM.
PABM’s custom development services help not only reach the client’s ultimate project goal, but also minimize its Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) while balancing resource utilization throughout the distributed development cycle.
PABM practices on-going QA which means providing on-going testing coverage in parallel with the development throughout the whole application development life cycle — from requirements and earliest deliverables to acceptance of the final product.
Continuous QA approach — when QA engineers are assigned to projects from the earliest stages — brings a number of tangible benefits, both in terms of code quality and cost effectiveness.
PABM maintains an independent QA team of professionals from different focus areas — mobile applications, desktop and web software.
This separation guarantees higher service quality achieved through unbiased approach, concentrated knowledge and experience aggregation and more transparent processes.
QA specialists participate in nearly each PABM’s project.
The development and delivery of the finished product is accomplished through a variety of tightly coordinated activities:
• Direct design and development by PABM employees.
• Close coordination with customer representatives.
• The careful selection and management of partner companies.
Note that our specialists are checking these assumptions throughout the project to ensure that we are driving the project in a manner consistent with our customers’ priorities.
ABM offers development of powerful, one-of-a-kind software intended to meet customers’ unique demands. Our skilled specialists know the game of business and deliver successful solutions that accord with all the specified requirements while invariably staying within time and budget limits.
Along with full-cycle custom software development, we provide software maintenance and platform-based customization.
PABM closely monitors status and reports risks as they are identified, each risk is tracked and options are explored and communicated.
To keep the project on track a weekly meeting is established to review risks and gain timely approvals.
Each phase of the custom application development project at PABM is driven according to the relative importance of three project management flexibility dimensions: schedule,
Feature’s & cost.
In order to achieve this objective, we start with the following assumptions regarding your priorities and flexibility:
• The schedule is normally the least flexible dimension since there would be little value to a solution which was delivered too late.
• The feature set prescribed for the solution may be somewhat flexible and feature tradeoffs could be considered in order meet the schedule requirement.
• In order to meet schedule or maintain desired features, cost tradeoffs may be considered.
With a serious and regardful attitude towards your business, we start from the point of concept examination: our specialists carefully analyze your needs and help you create a detailed software requirements specification, which is indispensable for implementing the project the way you envision it.
We offer two most common and effective
development methodologies: waterfall and agile.
While with waterfall you decide all the requirements for your project at the very start and get exactly what you need for a set price at a set time.
With agile you are in charge during the whole development process and are welcome to add/change requirements and assess the already implemented functionality on the go.
