ITIS has these three major phases :
Requirements & Business Goals
We collect and review all information relating to the goals and high-level requirements of your customized software development. We listen to your needs and document your vision, objectives and high-level requirements that are crucial to the software being developed. In addition to supporting the specification process in Phase 2, these will inform a smart development team about the goals and requirements of your software so they are encouraged to innovate beyond your specific instructions in Phase 3.
Software Specifications :
We define the requirements and functional specifications that enable a fixed-price bid to be created by any software development team. ITIS senior consultants document your complete software application requirements.
These documents spell out what your software will do and serves these three goals:
Provides feedback to you that we both understand the issues to be solved, and the software behavior necessary to address those issues.
Input for the development team to size the effort to design and implement your software application.
Serves as an acceptance test and validation after the completion of the design and development of your software application.
In order to create an accurate time and cost estimate for developing your application, ITIS will work closely with a selected preferred global partner to review the software specification to ensure all information is included.
Soon after Phase 2 is complete, a proposal for the time and cost of Phase 3 will be provided by ITIS at no additional charge.
Managed Software Development
- with project management & oversight of a global software development team. This third phase starts when you accept a proposal from ITIS, provided soon after your approval of the Phase 2 deliverables that are then used as a Statement of Work.
- ITIS software development team will work closely with our preferred partner(s) to implement your software application and specifications created in the previous phases. ITIS will also provide frequent status updates and get your feedback as appropriate to ensure that the deliverable meets your expectations. ITIS provides the oversight needed to confirm optimum performance of your outsourcing team. We work hard to find the right custom software development company for you.
ITIS’s process for managed software development is as follows:
Create a high level development schedule that contains a work break down structure
Create an iterative implementation plan that embrace Agile software development principles to enhance predictability and reduce risks
Continuous follow-up of work in progress to ensure quality and meeting the requirement specification.
- The ITIS software development service is designed for clients that need help with specifying their customized software requirements and managing its progress to a quick and successful completion. It is perfect for companies that are outsourcing for the first time, or companies that have outsourced customized software development in the past and received less than acceptable results.
