Development Processes

iQuest’s application development approach is founded on the principles of fast delivery, usability and easy maintenance. We provide both agile and plan driven methodologies, and we always make sure we select the most appropriate development and implementation process to ensure best-in-class delivery.

Plan Driven
iQuest’s generic software development process is based on the Rational Unified Process (RUP) and is configured according to typical business-driven projects. Our experience with long-term and complex projects includes various roles, from requirements gathering to project management, and 24×7 Support. We employ RUP when the entire scope of the project is well defined and a complete analysis of the solution together with the required building blocks are feasible.

Agile
iQuest fully embraces Agile as a guiding principle even when working in highly regulated industries. Agile frameworks such as SCRUM have proven to be highly effective and purposeful in our experience. We have successfully delivered multiple projects using SCRUM, ranging from internally managed teams to fully distributed teams taking part in the client’s processes. We were even able to fit a SCRUM process within fixed-scope projects.

WATER-SCRUM-FALL (WSF)
Based on both waterfall and agile approaches WSF is a hybrid delivery process developed by iQuest. The model merges the best of WATERFALL and SCRUM to form a unique project delivery model.

  • WATER: project direction, scoping and requirements, up-front planning
  • SCRUM: sprints, incremental and time-boxed approach, requirements and architecture, frequent and fast releases
  • FALL: project handover, maintenance and support cycle
