Agile Development

BrokenCubeYour mission-critical software cannot be entrusted to just anyone.  It’s your intellectual property, your competitive advantage, your crown jewels.  When Coveros builds your software, we don’t do it in a country you’ve never heard of.  And we can blend our experts into your teams if you wish so you not only accelerate your delivery but teach your staff how to build great software in the process.

We use Agile Development best practices, software experts and a proven Software Security framework to build word-class software for companies all over the world.


GSA

Coveros builds software using the following agile approaches:

  • Scrum
    We use SCRUM at Coveros to manage software projects and requirements for the software we build.  SCRUM provides an extremely flexible, yet rigorous approach to maximizing the amount of value you get from your software every day.  While we do have SCRUM masters at Coveros, it’s our decades of experience that make the difference when managing and leading software projects.  Always remember that you aren’t a rocket scientist just because you went to science camp.
  • Kanban
    We use Kanban at Coveros to optimize Agile performance by constraining work-in-progress to maintain high levels of throughput and productivity. Kanban is even more adaptable and provides a framework for higher visibility and focus upon work completion based upon a lean just-in-time delivery methodology. Let us show you how to leverage our experience with Kanban to improve your agile practices and improve your value creation.
  • eXtreme Programming
    When building great software, just using an agile project management approach like SCRUM is not enough.  Software teams must fundamentally change how they work day to day to be agile.  At Coveros, we use eXtreme Programming (XP) techniques to drive our software development and testing efforts, such as test-driven development, team-based design, and agile test automation.
  • Software Security
    Most software today has to be secure.  Whether to protect customer data, maintain the integrity of financial transactions, or simply to ensure that no one uses your software as a launching pad for an attack, security is no longer optional.  At Coveros, we have integrated a proven software security framework into our agile development approach to ensure that security is built into your applications from the ground up.

  • Continuous Integration / Delivery (CI/CD)
    Automation of the build, test, and deployment process is a keystone capability of any agile software project.  Experts will tell you that without a comprehensive CI/CD process, you are unlikely to finish the work you spec during your Sprints.  In addition, automation of this process significantly reduces downstream surprises and costly debugging time during product releases.

Agile Transition

Coveros has helped numerous customers transition to Agile and mature existing Agile practices. Let us help you get started today with an assessment and pilot project that will both facilitate collaborative roadmap development and jump-start implementation of effective Agile practices.

Our Assessment Model

The Coveros Agility Assessment ModelTM is a rigorous, proven approach for assessing the agility of your organization.  It has been applied to many organizations across a wide spectrum of industries including defense, financial services, healthcare, and software product vendors.  The outcome of an assessment is a gap analysis across major agile capabilities with a set of detailed recommendations for improvement.

Agile Pilot Projects

After completion of an agility assessment, the next step is typically to pilot the short-term recommendations within a new or on-going software development effort.  Coveros can provide expert agile technical and management staff to work side-by-side with your team to deliver working software using agile methods.  We’ve found that providing hands-on expertise and effort is the fastest way to transfer our agile knowledge to your teams.
