Methodology

cmsGalaxy has since inception been a strong adherent to defining projects through comprehensive functional and technical specifications. However, we realize the importance of keeping a reasonable balance between the competing demands of a rigorous process and the present day software scenario. Founded on principles embodied by modern software development methodologies, our company’s process effectively accommodates the dynamic pace and scope of today’s software projects. Our process is focused on producing the right product using the right technologies, delivered on time and on budget, and to ensure the timely and quality delivery for 100% client satisfaction we implement the following:

1.Process Sequencing
We adopt a proven, repeatable approach to managing the complete project lifecycle, which includes the following sequences:

2. Requirements capture
Our solutions and methodologies are based on a comprehensive requirements capture process. We integrate leading edge web technologies to fulfill the aims, and plan based on the requirement capture results

3. Business case studies
We at E2 Solutions fulfill an expansive range of requirements for you - from helping you evaluate and prioritize software and Internet initiatives to advancing those that have the most impact on your company’s bottom line and performance. We have put together a series of case studies to exhibit how some of our clients are benefiting from the web technology developed / designed by us.

4. Estimates
We provide with prior estimates, in order to assist you in collecting and writing out the information you need.

5. User interface prototypes
We perform simple, quick usability testing between User interface iterations to support rapid execution and revision of the prototypes.

6. Staged development
Includes Risk and change management control procedures and Testing & Quality Check & Installation.

7. Prototypes & Staged Deliveries
Defining deliverables in terms of prototype, phases or stages identify risks and constraints early on and based on those we are able to plan and implement counter measures with greater success. We keep on posting the small releases regularly during the project on our extranet. The functionality is developed and delivered in stages thus ensuring that the most important function is delivered at the earliest. This in turn reduces the possibility of estimation errors and enhances the project visibility.

8. Weekly Status Reports
After the end of every week, we send a Status Report to our clients telling them about:

9. The activities originally planned for the last week

The activities actually performed in the last week

The activities planned for the coming week

10. Comprehensive Bug Management
Bugs are part of every solution development process. We use a defect-tracking process, which leads to:

11. Streamlined software development and maintenance
Clear, updated information about the status of each bug or defect

Full control over the work flow

History of work done on each bug, defect or enhancement being always a click away

A fully integrated solution that enables users to input and track new bugs, defects, and problems in general

12. Knowledge Management System
We understand the power of Knowledge Management, and have in place in our technical department to ensure that we solve a problem just once. This drastically reduces the time of solving some of the most common, but complex problems. We do the phase-wise version controlling as well.

13. Project lifecycle
In the Project lifecycle, we use tools which facilitate or effectively document the following activities:

14. Project Management and Planning (PMP)

Configuration Management (CM) & Version Controlling

System Architecture Design

Automated Testing

Bug Management

15. Quality Assurance
The management of the quality process is infinite, and marked only by milestones, never by completion. We implement the Software Quality Assurance (SQA) process that addresses the quality assurance needs at every phase of the development cycle. Our QA team has developed a focused quality control checklist. In addition, we also have a comprehensive Quality Testing Checklist, which ensures that every solution delivered by us measures up to the highest possible international standards.

16. Our QA and Testing process includes

  • Test Planning
  • Test Cases and Test Scripts creation
  • Automated and Manual Functional Testing
  • Test Results Reporting
  • Performance Testing
