Software Development Service
ENFOCOM employs an effective process model to ensure your project exceeds your expectations. For software development and web application projects, the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) developed by the Software Engineering Institute is followed to ensure that the final product meets your requirements, is completed on time, and remains within the required budget.
Our Software Development System
1. Project Concept
This phase will define the overall goals of the project. The deliverable of this phase is a Project Charter.
2. Business / Requirement Analysis
The goals of this phase are to comprehensively define the system's end-users, to define the interactions they require, and to define the elements that appear on each of these screens. The deliverable of this phase is a Functional Requirements document.
3. Architecture Design
The outcome of this phase is a technical system architecture that will best support the current application/site while remaining completely scalable. The deliverable of this phase is a Technical Architecture document that details the recommended system for running the finished system.
4. Wire Frame
The outcome of this phase is the compilation of all supporting documentation needed to complete the interface design and coding of the site. The deliverables of this phase are a Wire Frames document containing page mockups that define each screen, a site architecture that illustrates the required page flow, and a functional specification that will define each discrete element from the wireframes.
5. Interface Design
The outcome of this phase is a completed visual design with an interface that satisfies the interactions defined in the functional requirements, any marketing/branding requirements of the client, as well as providing a viable user experience based on best practices. The deliverable will be a group of visual designs, with content based on the approved wireframes. A design will be created for each type of page the application/site requires – essentially a group of templates.
The outcome of this phase is a complete code base for the project. Most projects entail multiple layers such as presentation, database, and business logic. Each page is coded according to the Detailed Design and summary tested by the developer. We schedule a period of internal coding rework as a result of our internal testing once coding has been completed. The deliverable of this phase will be a functioning application for the testing by the QA staff. Traditionally, at this point, the application is hosted on a staging server with identical specifications to the final production environment. This can be done either locally or by the client's provider.
7. QA & Delivery
The outcome of this phase is an application that meets acceptance standards. All defects are closed or deferred. The deliverable is the final application, functioning without defects on the production server.
Our Project Manager is always the single point of contact for our clients. All project managers are certified experts and talented developers with years of experience and industry knowledge and they always deliver the product in budget and on schedule. The final acceptance of your project will be based on ENFOCOM meeting the conditions set forth in the Project Charter and our client agreeing that those conditions have been met. You can trust us to deliver your product with an architecture that allows for easy expansion, within budget, and on time.
Are there ways to reduce the cost of my project?
There are several tips one can follow to avoid over-expenditure. They include:
- Creating explicit requirements to the project, since this is the most important phase that determines the following process of software product development.
- Avoiding the introduction of useless modifications. Provided there is a sound version of software agreed upon with developers, it is highly recommended to refrain from any alterations unless it is absolutely vital.
- Setting realistic and achievable deadlines. Conscientious developers put clients in control of the situation and provide approximate time left to accomplish the task. Excessive hurrying may not only entail unnecessary expenses, but also affect the quality of a final product. Moreover, the whole process of software product development integrates a number of specialists who need to coordinate their actions and work as a team.
What is the client expected to contribute to the project?
It is always advisable for a client to be involved, stay close to the project, and be available and open for communication. Even in case when there are no evident complications or obstacles, there are always small things that need to be talked over. When developers have constant interaction with their clients, they are more likely to get an excellent product in the end.
