With the market needs changing at a faster pace, collaboration of development and operations teams has turned out to be a necessity for software companies. There is a need to integrate their methodologies to release quality software products more quickly assuring optimal performance, quality & functionality.
At Softobiz, we follow this unique combination of Agile & DevOps that helps us escape rigid, process-oriented application lifecycles and team up at development, testing, management, and operational levels.
Our Agile+DevOps methodology of product development has 5 major aspects:
Continuous development is an iterative software development approach. It focuses on delivering the project in the form of small features that can be easily deployed or withdrawn quickly in case any issue occurs. Continuous development is an umbrella term under which processes like continuous deployment, continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous testing fall.
Once the integrated code has passed all the manual and automation tests, we deploy it into the live product. This part is crucial as the changes are delivered to end users fast and quick action can be taken when necessary. Following this approach helps us get actionable feedback on time, make changes quickly, deliver your product on the promised deadline while making sure the quality is not affected.
After continuous integration, a continuous delivery system conducts functional tests, regression tests, and acceptance tests on the integrated code. Once the code passes all these tests, we send it to the staging environment for deployment.
A team of testers regularly conduct manual exploratory and user acceptance tests on the deployed code. Doing so makes sure the code is free from all issues before releasing the product.
Continuous integration refers to the process of adding new code to the source code. Developers upload the code to code repository every time develop the code for a new feature. We further send this code for unit testing.
"Very good understanding of the project, fast execution, well thought-through results. Highly recommended."
