Risks of Large-Scale Software Development. Mitigated

Large-scale projects are typically more complex and involve multiple teams, techs, dependencies, significant resources, longer timelines, and many stakeholders with various expectations. Large-scale software development requires careful planning, collaboration, and coordination among cross-functional teams to deliver complex, high-quality software systems that meet the needs of users and businesses effectively. All this significantly increases the chances for things to go wrong. Here is how ScienceSoft manages some of the common risks:

Risk of volatile project scope


  • Modeling of app features and feature dependencies.
  • Feature prioritization for agile development and fast app deployment.

Risk of software overcomplexity


  • Sustainable software architecture with well-planned dependencies between layers and modules.
  • High-quality and easily maintainable code due to extensive code reuse, unit testing and code reviews.

Risk of poor process coordination


  • Development project split in sub-projects with dedicated project managers.
  • DevOps practices to eliminate infrastructure-related issues.
  • Accurate, up-to-date, and detailed documentation.
  • Tailored frequency, granularity, and format of communication within the development team and with the business side.

Risk of lack of resources


  • Team augmentation services.
  • Continuous hiring process and an uninterrupted project flow.
  • Quick scaling up and down the team on demand.
  • Knowledge transfer and retention.

Risk of cost and time overruns


  • Meticulous scoping and realistic estimates.
  • Involvement of senior developers to ensure minimal learning curve and prevent rework.
  • Employing proven third-party components and public APIs.
  • Cloud-native architectures.
  • Proprietary approach to testing for optimized QA efforts.

Risk of a lagging app


  • Optimal app architecture.
  • Integrated application performance monitoring.
  • Continuous performance testing as a part of CI/CD.

Risk of problematic security and compliance


  • Component-level software security.
  • Integration of security practices throughout the development lifecycle (DevSecOps).
  • Regular security and compliance testing.

Our Customers Say

ScienceSoft’s C++ developers have been assisting Supponor in the ongoing development of the software for the past 11 years. ScienceSoft’s experience in cross-platform, real-time systems, and computer graphics helps to ensure consistently high performance and wide compatibility of Supponor’s products. We know we can rely on ScienceSoft’s experts and trust their excellent understanding of what our clients demand from Supponor software.

The challenge [of the projects] was not only to provide quality development services but to collaborate with two international teams engaged in the project implementation. ScienceSoft accomplished this task in a highly productive and efficient way.

Due to our business growth, we decided to outsource the continuous development, support and maintenance of our proprietary internal systems. We engaged ScienceSoft as our development partner. ScienceSoft coordinated knowledge transfer, discovery of our internal systems, then transitioned into supporting those systems and taking on projects to evolve their functionality.
