How We Work

Quality throughout the software development cycle

Our Approach

Today, for most organizations it is not feasible to completely document their requirements due to time or other constraints, or else the requirements change frequently due to changing market conditions, customer feedback or the business model. For that reason, Agile development is the number one approach at Creminds. After years of experience with software development, we’ve found that agile is the best methodology for delivering anything from a minimal viable product to a full-scale enterprise system. But we know the final decision for project methodology rests with the client and the team, so we are happy to offer Scrum, RUP or Waterfall to our clients as appropriate.

How We Work
Scrum

We develop software applications using the Scrum methodology. Scrum is an agile method for project management with an iterative approach.

Build & Delivery

Ever wondered what a build process is?  It is the process of building and deploying the code and the database for a custom application.

Quality Assurance

Creminds will create a tailored software application to meet your business needs. Agile practices have had a heavy influence on the software development process at Creminds.

Development Stages

Requirements

We want to fully understand your needs before implementing your project, so our first step is to analyze and document your high-level software requirements. With you, we will have many discussions, develop user stories, and document them in our project management tool, Redmine. This process ensures a project vision mutually agreed upon by your team and ours.

UX Design

Once we have a clear idea of your software requirements, we then aim to design the best solution. Host of other aids help us to make sure our design parallels your goals. By project completion you will be well-versed in wireframes, functional workflows, and many other artifacts.

Develop and Test

The next step is to program and completely test your software application using industry standard development tools, automated testing, and an automated build process. Using the automated build processes, we can ensure product quality, ensure the quality of the software by running tests, detect coding issues, and enforce certain development rules prior to deployment. In addition, we are regularly documenting the code to making it easy to understand today or years from now.

Deploy

From the client perspective, the project really begins with deployment of their custom software; possibly the most important aspect of the whole process. We take the most pride in proper installation, configuration and final performance.
We can streamline your deployment process through Continuous Delivery. Although it is not for every organization, we implement it when appropriate in order to automate deployment to test or production servers.
