As technology has advanced beyond being a mere enabler to leading business transformation, the need of the hour is to build an ability to produce disruptive products and platforms. The Traditional Waterfall method, which often resulted in project overruns, brings into question the efficacy of traditional approaches in project management. Enterprises today need to stay ahead of the competition through continuous improvements and be constantly involved in the project development lifecycle, despite working with geographically dispersed teams. The release cycles for product development have shrunken over the years. To make the product successful, it's often that the product development team comes under tremendous pressure.
At Ignitho, we carry out our projects using the Agile Methodology based on Scrum framework. A scrum is an iterative approach to software delivery that builds software incrementally instead of delivering all at once.
At Ignitho, scrum agile development framework and a process of continuous feedback fastens the delivery of innovation enabled technology solutions. We ensure that we maximise the value of our services throughout the development process. Our iterative planning and feedback loop help us to easily adapt to changing requirements throughout the process, which in turn enables our teams to continuously align the delivery of software with desired business needs.
