Phase 1:

Discovery & Foundation

Discovery phase is the most important phase of project development process. We start with the discovery phase where we meet with you to discuss project goals and business objectives. This process enables us to understand about your business and propose the solution.

In this process, we listen to your pain points, understand your business logic, do research, establish detailed requirements document, create target user personas, draft user stories, and find the robust solution customized for your business.

During this stage:

We Meet:

We hit the ground running by conducting a kick-off meeting to discuss your project requirements.

We Listen:

We listen to your pain points, business process, target audience, target demographics to outline the best possible solution.

We Understand:

Our subject matter experts would work with you closely to understand your business, your business goals. This will set a solid foundation for the project.

Phase 2:

Strategy and Documentation

On approval of business goals and objectives, we begin with the strategy phase. In this phase, our strategy development specialists identify key metrics of success and develop a detailed strategy for the project. This will help us determine the key metrics to determine success on project delivery.

Based on business goals, strategy, and key metrics, our technical team will work closely with you to create the information architecture, user personas, and user stories. Information architecture forms a foundation for user experience designs.

Strategy and Documentation

During the strategy phase, Alphalogic conducts activities such as:

  • Facilitate a meeting with your key business stakeholders and our technical business analysts
  • Identify industry competitors
  • Identify target key personas
  • Conduct user interviews
  • Define and prioritize overall business, stakeholder, project goals
  • Map out user journey for key personas
  • Define user stories across user journey
  • Identify key opportunities and prioritize the feature set
  • Accumulate necessary feature requirements
  • Identify development and deployment requirements and constraints
  • Review technical architecture, infrastructure & analytics
  • Establish primary project constraints like budget, milestones and level of finish

Phase 3:

Design

During the design phase, your application takes shape. Our specialized design team follows user-centric design approach. We give special importance to the primary user experience as a foundation of the project. A solid UX/UI designs help attract new users and retain existing users. We have years of experience building right user experience for your users.

The deliverables of this phase are product wireframes, mockups, and clickable prototypes.

UI UX Design

During the design phase, what you’ll find us doing:

  • Performing mood-board conceptualization exercise with project stakeholders
  • Building wireframes
  • Building high-quality mockups
  • Building clickable prototyping
  • Holding weekly design check-ins with project team
  • Performing A/B testing for user experience feedback and refinement

Phase 4:

Development

The development phase is where the magic happens. We take your designs, user stories, mockups and develop a robust application. We follow a proven and matured Scrum agile development methodology tested for over 60+ applications.

The development team starts by building product backlog which is governed by the product owner. Based on the product backlog, the team selects appropriate user stories for a sprint. In sprints, the development team holds daily scrum. Our sprints are of 2-4 weeks. At the end of every sprint, we demonstrate the incremental shippable product and take feedback.

Development Phase

During the build phase, Alphalogic conducts activities such as:

  • Sprint planning
  • Daily scrum
  • User story grooming session
  • Sprint development
  • Weekly code reviews
  • Sprint review
  • Incremental shippable product

How we use Scrum framework for development?

Scrum framework allows us to build applications iteratively and also help us reduce the development risks.

In scrum process, the development is divided into several sprints. Each sprint turn-out into a small shippable product that is ready to be delivered to the customer. Customer reviews the product and gives feedback for the same. Any feedback given by the customer is then added to the next sprint.

The Scrum process involved the following core roles:

  • The product owner who is responsible to take care of the end user’s interests.
  • Scrum master, who coordinates the whole scrum process and make sure that Scrum is used in a right way and responsible for the Scrum meetings.
  • Scrum team develops the product including the programmers, analysts, designers and QA engineers.
Sprint implementation

Here are the steps of complete Scrum Model process we use:
Step 1: Product Backlog Creation
The product backlog is a prioritized list of features (User Stories) that should be implemented during the development process. During this stage, the Product Owner writes the user stories, prioritizes them as per value, and adds to the product backlog. Each product backlog item has a unique ID.

Step 2: Sprint Backlog Creation And Sprint Planning
The sprint backlog is the subset of the product backlog. In each sprint, scrum team picks the user stories from product backlog to implement.
In sprint planning meeting, the entire Scrum team assembles; in collaboration with the Product Owner and the Scrum Master the team selects a user story from the backlog and the group members brainstorm on it. Based on the conversation, the Scrum group decides the complexity of the story and decides if it should go into the sprint and how much they can complete in the upcoming sprint.

Step 3: Sprint Implementation And Daily Scrum Meetings
Once the team agrees, the software development process begins. The Sprint implementation is started and the team starts working on the stories. To track the current working process, we use the task board within the team.
We hold the daily scrum meetings through the sprint cycle, each day the scrum team meets and discuss the project status and critical issues for maximum fifteen minutes. Where each team member answers 3 things:
1. What did I do yesterday?
2. What do I intend to do today?
3. Explain if the person has anything blocking them from completing their work for the day.

Step 4. Sprint Review Meeting and Product Demonstration
After each sprint completion, the team holds a Sprint Review Meeting to demonstrate a working product increment to the Product Owner and Scrum Master. In this meeting, the developed product features are demonstrated in the live environment. The Product Owner may verify the stories according to their acceptance criteria and On this basis, they take a decision about further project changes.

Step 5. Retrospective and Next Sprint Planning
After sprint review meeting the team hold the Retrospective meeting to discuss the results and determine the ways how to improve development process on the next sprint planning. In this meeting group meets and talks about the following points:
1. Exactly what went well in the sprint?
2. Exactly what didn’t go as planned in the sprint?
3. Lessons learned?
4. Action items to be acted on?

Once the improvement strategies are outlined, the team concentrate and apply that to the next sprint planning.

Phase 5:

Quality Assurance

At Alphalogic, we have our dedicated Quality assurance team. Our dedicated QA engineers work exclusively on a single project and directly report to the project business analyst as well as closely collaborate with you and your staff. This proven approach helps us build a robust application.

We use automation is our testing process. Our top-of-the-line automation testing engineers build the automated test scripts, do the regression-testing of your application, and effectively create the QA automated test environment for your project.

Quality Assurance

During the build phase, Alphalogic conducts the following QA activities within an agile iteration or sprint:

  • Sprint planning and refine acceptance
  • Requirements analysis and story kickoff
  • Test scenatios creation
  • Automation tests implementation and execution
  • Regression testing
  • Story testing (manual + exploratory)
  • Test on real devices
  • Pre-production release testing
  • Automation tests maintenance

Quality Our QA process include some major testing phases as follows:

R

Project performance testing

During this phase, the overall performance of the system will be measured and analyzed. The key parameters for performance testing include the user scalability and handling, database load testing and response time.

R

Project optimization

During this phase, we measure the response times for each module. If the response time for the module of the application is high, we optimize the required to reduce the response time and optimize page loading.

R

Independent testing

During this phase, an independent QA team is assigned the responsibility to test the functionality of the application and give final approval.
