We employ Industry best practices to create unique products and applications for our customers. We are a strong believer in the “Agile” way of working; working closely with the ever- evolving nature of business requirements and with our own business values

Participative Agile Development

At EngineWorks we follow a participative agile development process; it is a process of joint development which includes teams at the customer’s end and at EngineWorks. This methodology is based on iterative, incremental and adaptive development, and high flexibility. It helps us collaborate with our customers’ teams and understand their thought process at every stage of development. It also promotes teamwork and allows risks to be managed successfully. Development happens in “sprints” that last two to six weeks, at the end of which the working product is demonstrated to the customers. The goal of each sprint is to have a market ready iteration with minimum defects.

The Agile methodology rests on a team’s capability to communicate with each other and that is why we emphasize collaboration and teamwork at EngineWorks. Our flat organizational structure also promotes Agile development because it means that people contribute freely and thosee from cross-functional domains are involved at every stage. This method is also in step with our organizational concept of transparency and openness. Many customers prefer to use this time-tested method over others due to its low risk and high flexibility advantage.

Such a participative agile process has many advantages and helps to allay the fears which customers generally have when outsourcing software development projects.

Major advantages are as follows.

Customers Know what to expect: This process involves the customer at all stages of product development. As a result, cstomers are always aware of what to expect at the end of each development phase.

Scope Agility: Our participative agile process gives the speed and agility to adjust to new information provided by end customers and changing business requirements. The process can adapt to any environmental changes which occur during the process.

Better Control on Quality and Budget: The agile processes require greater commitment from all agile developers thus resulting in better quality than traditional processes. It involves lean principles of "Decide as late as possible" and "Deliver as fast as possible" , thereby providing better utilization of project resources.

Greater Visibility: Our processes give a complete picture of the product roadmap to our customers` top management thus helping them keep track of and make crucial decisions.
