UnifyCloud’s blueprint for successful offshore development begins with a deep understanding of the customers requirements:

Review & Assess Business Requirements

  • UnifyCloud meets with you to review your specific business requirements

Writing & Review of Functional specification

  • Once there is a thorough understanding of requirements and software capabilities, UnifyCloud writes a Functional specification
  • The functional specification clearly states how the application or POC will operate

Review & Approval of Functional specification

  • Business and IT owners review and agree to the functional specification
  • All parties sign an approval form for work to begin

Technical Specification written

  • UnifyCloud converts the functional specification into a technical specification by detailing the technical solution necessary to meet each business requirement. The technical specification must detail the technical solution such that a developer can generate an accurate solution. DC&M’s technical specification template ensures that all pertinent information is captured as it relates to the functional specification.

Review of Technical Specification

  • Technical Specification is distributed to the project team for formal review
  • Review with all key players including Program Manager, Technical Lead and Developers
  • Everyone must agree that the technical specification is feasible and that it documents the technical requirements and proposed solution
  • All parties sign an approval in order to launch development

Development

  • Development begins pursuant to the technical specification document
  • Program Manager maintains contact with the project team
  • Agile and Scrum methodologies are followed for development
  • Mock-ups and Prototypes are developed and reviewed prior to coding to clarify requirements
  • Changes in specification requirements go through the change control process

Testing

  • Rigorous testing ensures the development meets requirements and performs as specified in the technical specification.

Perform Quality & Security Review

  • Code and documentation are forwarded to review the code for quality and efficiency
  • Ensures proper documentation
  • Iterative process of testing and feedback, if problems with the code, sent back to the development team for necessary corrections
  • Deliverable is delivered to the customer for beta testing prior to final delivery

Deliver Solution

  • After the development has been Beta tested, additional changes may be made

Perform Functional Review & Final Approval

  • Team thoroughly tests the deliverable to ensure it works as outlined in the functional specification
  • Errors or unexpected behaviors are documented and communicated to the developer
  • Deliverable is handed off to the customer for approval
