Knowledgeable Agile Scrum Software Engineers

Omnicon's knowledgeable Agile Scrum software engineers are diverse in satisfying your software development needs. Whether your product requires a more traditional method to develop and test software, or something more targeted, we have the expertise to approach your project with just the right combination of talent and technique.

There are different approaches to software development. The more traditional, Waterfall, builds in phases, unfolding the entire development process into a single release. However, if your project has dynamic needs or constantly updated requirements, or if your project is market driven, this method may not be the most suitable.

The Agile Scrum framework provides a different methodology to software development, allowing for an iterative approach. Using daily feedback intervals allow teams to collectively discuss and propose implementation paths to resolve issues on a regular cadence.

Scrum Structure and Framework

There is a specific structure to Scrum. A series of fixed length iterations called Sprints give teams a framework to develop and test software keeping developers, test engineers, the customer, and all stakeholders abreast of the progress made.

This structure consists of four distinct steps:

  • Sprint Planning: The team discusses the application requirements to determine what needs to be completed in the Sprint
  • Daily Scrum: The Scrum Manager has a short meeting with the team to discuss progress and issues
  • Sprint Demo: The developers and testers demonstrate what has been accomplished at the end of the Sprint
  • Sprint Retrospective: The team reviews aspects that did and did not go well and what steps need to be taken to make the next Sprint more productive

Benefits of Using Scrum

  • Quality Assurance is incorporated into the project as the process unfolds
  • Risk Management is built into the process making your product better able to adapt to changes, regardless of whether it comes from the client, industry, or technology changes
  • More accurate results after the Sprint means the product can be more tangible, or stable and has fewer surprises along the way that could otherwise increase your budget

Omnicon’s Scrum teams have the capacity to work closely with your engineers, or can work independently in an Agile environment to develop and test your software. Our engineers provide frequent communication of their findings so there are no surprises in your end product. See how our expertise can benefit your next project. Contact us today!

Improving System Safety with Message-Level Software FMEA

What’s Inside: System reliability and safety can be improved by applying failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) to system software. FMEA at the message level can assess effects of many problems caused by low-level faults such as coding errors, timing problems, hardware failure, and unexpected input data.
