Business Challenges That Traditional Software Development Can’t Solve
We understand the challenges that can arise with software development. Typically, that includes solving one of the following problems, though usually, it’s all three.
Your Project is Complex
At this point, you might know precisely how to execute your vision, but you lack the internal bandwidth to do so. It’s a difficult project, full of unknowns. It’s exactly why people choose Ascendle.
Transparency is Critical
You can’t afford for your project to go into a black hole, only to come out months later full of bugs. Our fully transparent process ensures you’ll know the status of your project at all times.
You Can’t Afford to Fail
Your project isn’t the flavor of the week or something your team thinks “would be cool.” Instead, this project was conceived as a way to deliver true value to your stakeholders. Millions of dollars are at stake, and if it doesn’t produce business value, that’s a serious problem.
A Strategic Approach to Solving Key Challenges
Phase 1: Strategy
Here’s the secret other firms won’t tell you: At the beginning of a project, it’s impossible to know the total cost of a custom software development project.
Most software projects go over budget due to unforeseen complexity and changes in scope. The more information that can be discovered up front, the more accurate the projected schedule – and projected cost – will be.
That’s why all of our custom software development engagements begin with a detailed strategy phase.
During this phase, our team of product and development experts works closely with you to understand your vision and solidify your requirements, technology, and architecture. We create a prioritized “to-do list” – the product backlog – which will be used to guide the work of the team. We also work with you to bring the user interface design to life and create a click-through prototype of your product.
Our custom development strategy phase typically runs 6 to 8 weeks, depending on the size and complexity of your project.
Strategic Process Deliverables
Phase 2: Delivery
Fully formed Scrum teams can be scaled to match your delivery time frame.
During the strategy phase of your project, we solidify your anticipated launch date and project budget. Once a team size is chosen, senior software engineers and a quality assurance engineer are ramped up and start executing in two-week production cycles called sprints.
Each of Ascendle’s Accelerated Software DeliverySM Teams operates on two-week sprints. The only difference is the number of resources dedicated to your project. This allows you the flexibility to accommodate your budget requirements and launch on time. Scope varies from project to project, but we often produce a minimum viable product (MVP) within 16 to 20 weeks after the strategy phase.
Every 2 weeks you’ll see new, fully-tested features that you can use in a private demo environment. As you see the product coming together and show it to your team and users, you’ll inevitably come up with new ideas.
We’ll continuously work with you to respond to changing business conditions, adjusting the backlog to course-correct the work of the team.
