Approaches to Executing Software Projects
Striking a Balance with the Contemporary & Classic
With innumerable project management methodologies defining the business approaches of enterprises, choosing the right approach is an important first step towards success of software projects. Multidots recognizes the varied and in some cases the overlapping approaches in managing complexities of digital projects to handhold your vision to chart out an effective roadmap for your digital success.
Our project execution methodologies based on mature guidelines recognizing organizational priorities bring in agility with assured quality standards striking the mythical balance between the budget, scope & durations of a project.
DevOps for Quicker Go-Markets
DevOps is easily the fastest and the most reliable approach to devising & delivering projects with the minimal gaps between the development, testing & operations. With quick delivery cycles and continuously implemented feedbacks, our solutions following the DevOps methodologies help enable a proactive approach to deliver new capabilities with reduced time lag between the receipt of & action on user feedbacks increasing satisfaction and improving the levels of engagement.
This approach enables us to bring in the improvements based on customer feedbacks and have smaller and frequent releases with niche practices in place.
- It involves use of automated techniques for deployment & testing thus enabling quicker integration
- The release sizes are small enabling quicker feedback and frequent deployments
The Plus Points
- Speed in adapting to changing expectations
- Rapid Delivery
- Better reliability & security
- Enforced automation
- Easy Scale up of projects
- Improved collaborations
Agile Software Development More Efficient Than Many
Agile methodologies promote development done in small iterations with step-ups & increments ensuring fruitful collaborations across the development as well as QA teams. The speed at which the changing expectations get blended in and the step by step incremental maturity of the software delivers a truly Agile system. Our Agile software models are driven by expert scrum masters putting to use established practices like Confluence, Jira and more to ensure the speed of roll-outs.
Multidots keeps up pace with the changing approaches and brings in Extreme programming, a specialized Agile methodology with short development cycles where projects are divided into simpler tasks.
- Developers release each set of software to the customers for feedback
- Feedback from the customers are incorporated and the developers move on to the next task

- Agile abbreviates the delivery time making it easier to get early feedback and make changes according to customer requirements
- Reduces the length of the design, analysis and planning phases letting you define project frames including budget and time of deliveries
- Compliance with the predefined project standards is ensured and the quality remains guaranteed
- Since Agile boosts collaborative working, expectations all across the projects are met with
The Iterative Model
Through this approach we divide the project into smaller parts allowing the development team to deliver manageable phases leading to the next step in sequence consolidating each phase in the route.
The step by step approach ensures a thoroughness and reliability unmatched by most other methods.
The Waterfall Model
This most easy and the most popular classic method remains our favourite too. Progressing like a waterfall, sequencing through systematic phases of Requirement, Design, Development, Testing, Deployment & Maintenance, the Waterfall model taps discrepancies before it is too late.
We follow accurate documentation indicating enterprise intents ensuring user satisfaction and adherence to quality standards.
Hybrid Project Executions
With the hybrid approach into project management we involve all principles and elements observed in both Agile and the classic methodologies. We organize the project into smaller parts and formulate appropriate work breakdown structures to manage all; infrastructure, software and functionalities to ensure that you get the best of all the available methodologies practiced to deliver superlative products & services
- Generally, Waterfall model is used for the core stages
- Requirement Gathering
- Software Release
- Each component is then specified with more detail and developed using the agile project management approach.
- The Work Breakdown structure defines the tasks at macro level and the fine tuning is done at each step
- Project Initiation
- High Level Requirements agreement
- Top level Architecture
- Define the product Back log,
- Prioritize user stories,
- Sprints Planning,
- Daily Stand ups,
- Sprint Reviews,
- Sprint Retrospectives,
- TDD Approach for Unit Testing
Agile - Option
- Pre release activities
- System testing
- Load test, Stress test, Performance tests
- Light Weight “User acceptance testing”
The USP of this approach is that all the high-level tasks and their interrelationship and what the final product or the service delivered are defined by the Work Breakdown Structure. Agile definitely speeds up the development of each component and its sub-component in the plan. This hybrid approach makes better quality products with less development time and faster reaction to the market.
