In addition, our customers get access to the Softeq's accumulated technological and domain knowledge via Softeq's tech experts / R&D specialists that may be temporarily (or, in some cases, permanently) allocated to the customer's dedicated development team.
Drawing on the philosophy of partnership, we strive to understand the business of our clients to be able to provide more value through software development services. By closely collaborating with the project stakeholders on the client side we ensure better integration with the client’s workflows, environment, and tools; higher quality of the delivered solution, as well as responsive requirements management for rapid change request processing.
We’ve years of experience in a variety of development methodologies, including: Agile, Waterfall, Rational Unified Process, Rapid Application Development.
The Agile and RUP methodologies have proved to be the most popular process frameworks favored by Softeq’s team for the right mix of tools, techniques, and practices. The choice of the most suitable project management and development methodology will depend on the work scope and project duration and will provide the best balance of risk mitigation, cost, and progress control.
At Softeq we employ special filters for screening out the best matching candidates. This significantly facilitates the DDC team staffing process:
During the filtering process the candidates who match the Client’s requirements both across the technology and domain competencies are given higher priority over the candidates with a single line of expertise.
To make knowledge transfer between the Customer and the dedicated team a smoothly integrated process, we employ the following approach:
To make the aggregated team’s experience available for sharing with the new team members in DDC and at the customer’s site, all the project artifacts and documentation, including task and issue history, will be stored and become accessible through special well-structured document and media repositories.
Depending on the development methodology underlying the project implementation that require more or less frequent communication for tracking the work progress, the DDC team will hold periodic online meetings and conference calls. This will ensure greater project transparency and manageability, while facilitating better understanding between the parties.
To get the most out of the knowledge transfer process and eliminate possible misunderstandings or miscommunication, Softeq may commission several core DDC team members to travel to the Customer’s site to serve as communication mediators between the in-house and the DDC teams.
Softeq rolls out a dedicated secure infrastructure across an isolated office space, which is set up in compliance with the best practice recommendations on information security management. Some of the key security controls installed within the DDC are:
