Software Development Process

Having worked with large development teams, we've spent significant amounts of time writing documents and engaging in other activities that never really amounted to anything.

Very often, this is in fact a happy outcome for all concerned. Ideas are explored and then rejected without making more serious resource commitments to unworkable or unprofitable goals.

However, all too often, the amount of time spent on ancillary processes exceeds the cost of simply attempting a small prototype or other proof of concept. Time spent on Traditional Development Process allows more nimble competitors to captivate the market with an initial product version. This early lead may be all that it takes to dominate the market for years to come.

Newer Lightweight Development Processes began to emerge in the mid-90's as larger development organizations struggled with the need to achieve the benefits of small-scale entrepreneurial development with their larger-scale operational realities.

In 2001, the concept of "lightweight" software development methodologies was unified by the publication of the Agile Manifesto. AlwaysServices has signed the manifesto and believes that the customer-centric principles inherent in agile software development practices make particular sense in the context of partnerships between a technology consultant and client businesses.
