Our Operating Method for a Scalable and Performant Software House: A 4-Step Journey.

Our modus operandi is structured into a well-structured process, divided into crucial phases. Our method is based on modern management frameworks (e.g., Agile Scrum) and our previous experience over the past 15 years. It is a dynamic and collaborative process that requires technical skills, problem-solving skills, and effective communication. Each phase is interconnected and influences the next, ensuring the creation of high-quality software that meets the Client's needs and adapts to the challenges of the constantly evolving market.

  • Analysis, Design, and Planning

    In this initial phase, the foundation for the success of the project is laid. It starts with a careful analysis of the Client's needs, thoroughly understanding goals, problems, and expectations. Through interviews, questionnaires, and workshops, valuable information is gathered that shapes the software vision.

    Thanks to our network of consultants, we seek tax breaks that financially support the development phases with non-repayable grants.

    This is followed by design, where the software architecture, its components, and their interactions are defined. Flowcharts, mockups, and prototypes are created to outline the user interface and user experience.

    In parallel, a detailed plan is created, defining timelines, resources, and development methodologies.

  • Source Code Development

    With the specifications well-defined, the development phase begins, where the source code comes to life. Programmers, experts in the chosen languages and technologies, translate ideas into lines of code.

    The chosen methodology, whether Agile or Waterfall, divides the work into iterations, allowing for constant control and continuous feedback. Automated and manual tests ensure code quality, while code reviews and refactoring ensure readability and maintainability.

    During the sprints, the Client can preview the functionalities and the progress of the work. In this way, transparency and tangibility are guaranteed in this phase.

    Finally, if necessary, the requirements can be confirmed or modified (if necessary) to optimize the result.

  • First Release and Compliance Testing

    The release moment is crucial. The cloud architecture that will host the web application is created and/or iOS and Android accounts are configured in compliance with regulations.

    The first version of the software is released and made accessible to the public, ready to be tested and used. In this phase, testers play a fundamental role, evaluating the software against functionality, performance, usability, and security criteria.

    Compliance tests verify compliance with specific standards and regulations. Any bugs or defects are reported and prioritized for correction free of charge in subsequent releases.

    Finally, load tests and penetration tests are performed to prevent anomalies that could cause data loss or data breaches.

  • Maintenance, Monitoring, and Implementation of New Features

    In most cases, software is never a finished product. The maintenance phase ensures its operation over time, with corrective actions for discovered bugs, security updates, and implementation of new features.

    Continuous monitoring of performance and usage allows for the identification of areas for improvement and resource optimization. These activities are carried out manually and automatically through the activation of alarm systems capable of providing prior notice of anomalies.

    Evolution is an ongoing process. Based on Client feedback, market trends, and new technologies, new features are implemented that enhance the value of the software and extend its life cycle.
