AgileWorks is managed and owned by people of the same field, that is the developers, which means that the interest in the service quality and success of client projects is even greater. We have a clear view of what kind of joys and difficulties the company ownership, management and development may entail, what the dos and don’ts are to make things run smoothly.
Our team is made up of experienced software developers. All developers have specialised higher education and years of experience in the development of information systems for private companies as well as state authorities in Estonia and abroad.
Applying agile principles and values demands more from the developers in software development than just programming skills. Agile developers must keep up with time and innovations, be adaptable, open to changes/development, be multifunctional, result-orientated, with good communication skills and teamwork ability.
One of the main differences between agile and traditional development is that agile development welcomes changes and constant progress. The world is changing, business goals are changing – so our software must be ready for changes and development at any time.
Why prefer agile development over traditional? The foundation of the agile approach is the continuous and swift exchange of information and delivery of results. The customer gets a piece of developed software after every short period of time in order to start using it, which in turn enables timely feedback to the development team about the need for changes or subsequent necessary developments. The advantages of agile development also include automated tests and test-driven development, that is already writing the tests before development. All of this ensures that the software is developed properly, as cost-efficiently as possible, and the result meets the customer’s actual business needs.
Agile Software Developing is effective, high quality and swift. The most important thing is customer satisfaction. This assumes delivery of software that meets the customer’s goals, doing it efficiently and as often as possible. The customer receives a part of the used software every couple of weeks without having to wait for the completion of the entire software.
The customer’s vision of the needed software may change over time as the business progresses. We welcome necessary changes in the software development phase. In order to be flexible, we prefer not to set a strictly fixed volume, deadline and budget at the beginning of a project. We can agree on these, if necessary, but this may hinder the flexibility of development.
If you’re in a hurry, agile development is perfect for you. From the feasibility phase, delivery can be achieved in just a couple of weeks. Each delivered component of the software can be used independently and used to generate profit. On average, we deliver software 30-40% faster than companies using traditional development methods.
If meeting up is not possible, the distance is not an obstacle. Skype and a web-based project management platform allow the customer to plan development cycles, keep regular track of the development, test results and provide feedback.
We deliver software frequently, i.e. in short development cycles that generally span a couple of weeks. With each delivery, the customer receives a usable component of the software. Cyclical development presents the customer with a great opportunity to make new decisions about what to change or add in the next cycles.
Our success is mainly measured by software that is high quality, has no security risks and works well. If the developed code is good quality and has been adequately tested, it is also sustainable and can even be improved by the developers of the same field.
We value individuals and their interactions over processes and tools
We value working software over comprehensive documentation
We value customer collaboration over contract negotiation
We value responding to changed circumstances over following a planSource: http://agilemanifesto.org/iso/en/manifesto.html
