  • Lean solutions with tailored feature set
  • Unlimited scalability
  • On-demand evolution and new feature delivery
  • Freedom to integrate with any other systems (your legacy software, third-party systems)

Requirements Analysis & Management

To a large extent, the success of custom software development depends on the right understanding of the business problem it is aimed to solve. Thus, solid requirements management is at the core of custom software development. This process usually includes:

  1. Investigation of a business situation, analysis of project stakeholders.
  2. Understanding user tasks and goals and business objectives.
  3. Understanding the environment software will be used in.
  4. Functional and non-functional needs elicitation.
  5. Requirements modeling, detailing, agreement, prioritization, and documenting.
  6. Conflicting requirements resolution.
  7. Assessing the feasibility of a software solution, identification and evaluation of alternatives.
