SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT SERVICES
Are aimed at designing, engineering, deploying, supporting, and evolving various software types. Xai Syndicate Internasional develops quality software and offers related services - software consulting, cloud migration, app integration, and more. We serve mid and large enterprises and software product companies across multiple industries, including retail, financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, and others.
Our software development highlights
Quality delivery at speed – an MVP/first working software version is ready in 1-2 months, major releases are every 2 weeks, daily minor releases.
- End-to-end software development – we envision, plan, design, develop, integrate, deploy, and support software solutions.
- In-house project management office (PMO) – our PMs are experienced in large complex projects with distributed teams and multiple vendors involved.
- Services built around strict agreed KPIs – business outcomes, quality of delivered software, code quality, development process efficiency, project time and costs (actual costs vs budget, budget to completion vs budget remaining, etc.), team’s productivity, and customer/user satisfaction.
Software development methodologies agile we employ
The iterative approach with an emphasis on collaboration and continuous improvement. Software is developed in small portions and new features are delivered on a regular basis.
Software development is done in Sprints, 2-3-week iterations with identified granular goals and backlogs. The following practices are common: sprint planning meeting, daily stand-ups, sprint review (and demo), retrospective, backlog refinement (grooming). Scrum software development methodology - Xai Syndicate Internasional
Best for: any product development project with a need to test the idea, midsize projects in custom software development where software requirements cannot be accurately defined, incremental development of large complex software (which is easy to divide into small functional parts) to start getting value fast.
The work is done in very short Sprints, often daily. Daily (or once in 2 days) meetings are held to discuss progress and priorities. The team uses the Kanban Board that provides a clear representation of all project activities, responsible persons, and progress.
Best for: software support and evolution projects.
Best for: small and midsize projects with clearly defined and unchanging requirements, projects requiring formal approvals (governmental projects and projects for big corporations), projects with strict compliance requirements.
Note: For many projects it makes sense to use a combination of approaches or switch from one to another depending on the project stage. In our practice, the most common scenarios are ‘Waterfall -> Scrum’, ‘Scrum -> Kanban -> Scrum’. Since switching to a new methodology entails new tools and new processes, wa pre-switch intro meeting or mini-training should be conducted by the vendor to keep project running effectively from day one.
