Understanding your business
We begin every relationship with an in-depth discussion about the short and long-term desires for your project. Our engineers will review any hidden requirements and your existing codebase, if you have one. When we know your goals and understand existing software, we are able to better ensure the success of the project before we even write our first line of code. By the end of this phase, KIO works together with you to make a plan of development that accords with your goals, your timeline and your operating budget.
Tell us your needs, desired functionality, the business methods used, and we will design the most appropriate solution to meet your needs. KIO IT SOLUTIONS works with the knowledge that most businesses will evolve and change, so we build your software solutions scalable and flexible enough for easy adaptation down the road.
For many developers, software architecture and design are overlooked, which might hinder the application's performance and development velocity. Other projects may suffer from big design up front, which can cause unnecessary complexity and delay feedback that would otherwise come organically during implementation.
We have a pragmatic approach to architecture and design issues. We pinpoint the most important areas that it's worth investing upfront time, and prioritize others afterwards, where the design comes only after more important development iterations are finished.
To solve any project related issue that may arise in the process, a project manager/scrum master is appointed from Day 1 to work as the client's main contact point
We prefer to divide the project into several iterations. The iterative approach offers these advantages.
- Transparency: Each delivery is timely and completed on budget. By delivering often, you will be able to frequently monitor the progress of the project, which enhances transparency.
- Reliability: Each delivery reopens the conversation to confirm all requirements have been met according to acceptance criteria.
- Time-to-market: Each delivery can be used immediately as it will contain some of expected project functionality.
