Development Cycle

Atomicus works closely with you to define a development process to meet your specific needs at the start of your project. Whether you are outsourcing a product, developing a custom application, or creating analytical software for an existing product, having a clear process to follow from the outset helps us ensure that your product is ready on time, meets quality standards, and follows General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements for software development.

Project Analysis and Planning

We start by determining the scope of the project through a combination of correspondence and, potentially, a face-to-face meeting. We then form a project task force, which analyzes your project requirements and prepares a first draft of the user requirement specifications. This draft will come complete with an estimated timetable and the project costs.

Development

The development stage starts with a detailed specification of the design and functionality of the product, a timetable to complete the development process, and a testing schedule. The product development process is highly interactive, and you can expect to receive regular progress reports. During this process, we deliver a working version of the software, receive your feedback via video calls or personal meetings, and discuss how to address your feedback with the next version of the software.

Testing

We use three main approaches during the testing stage: manual testing, automated script testing, and case tests. These comprehensive approaches allow us to perform thorough quality assurance to prepare your product for release.

Preparing Your Team for Success

Once the testing stage is complete, we hand over the final product and a full package of resources, including technical documentation, manuals, video tutorials, and quick start guides. We will also transfer all intellectual property rights and software source code to you at this time.

We work closely with your business throughout the entire development cycle to ensure that the software product we provide meets all your needs. Any of your programmers and developers can supervise and participate in the development process in order to gain a clear understanding of the project structure and architecture to continue in-house development after product delivery.
