How we work

Cooperating with Innowise Group, you get access to advanced expertise in software development while having the opportunity to pick individual options regarding engagement models and project management methodologies. We also set great store by security compliance, corporate employee policy, and organizational governance. All of the above allows us to maintain the quality of the services provided at a high level.

Cooperation models

Innowise Group offers the full-fledged development team to work on all the stages of the software development process. We form a team depending on the specifics of the project, industry, and technology stack. Our company takes sole responsibility for team management, project risks, and final product quality while providing you with all the necessary tools for daily control over the task execution processes.

The full-service outsourcing model is the best option if you don’t have your software development department, lack needed expertise, or want to concentrate on core operations.

Our company can provide fully staffed teams or individual IT professionals to contribute to your software development project under your direct management. Having a large team of 1000+ IT experts, we help our customers enrich their in-house IT departments with our developers, QA engineers, architects, business analysts, project managers, etc. Due to the low employee attrition rate and fast team ramp-up, we ensure the highest level of services provided under the team augmentation model.

IT staff augmentation can benefit you the most if your company needs to expand the human resource base and fill up internal team expertise.

Pricing model

Time and Material

Under the T&M model, you pay for man-hours dedicated to your project and reimburse additional expenses if they occur. The payment structure is discussed individually and most often coincides with the main stages of the project.

Time and Material is perfect for projects based on the Agile software development frameworks, as the scope of work and the team size can change.

Fixed price

Material remuneration is established during negotiations before the start of the project and is not subject to any changes. There are also tight deadlines for the scope of work and payments.

The Fixed Price model is most effective and most often applied in projects with a Waterfall software development model since there’s a clear plan of project execution process that is unlikely to be altered.

Dedicated Team

The model implies hiring a team of IT professionals on the monthly basis starting from 0.5 FTE (full-time equivalent). The DT model helps to avoid all the risks and additional costs related to the employee management process.

The model is the best option for long-lasting projects where you need particular IT specialists to be part of your team for a reasonable cost.

Software development process

Throughout the 15-years professional activity, we have elaborated the typical steps of the software development process. Some stages may vary depending on the specifics of the solution being developed, the chosen cooperation model, and software development methodology.

Software development methodologies

At Innowise Group, we leverage various software development life cycle models, be they linear or Agile, to ensure the smooth working processes and bring the most value to our clients.

Waterfall

The development process consists of successively passing phases. Each stage can be started only after the previous one is completely finished. The model can be effectively used on small and middle-sized projects with clear functional requirements. It’s best suited to projects where tough deadlines, comprehensive documentation, and predictable budgets are must-have requirements.

For example, we used Waterfall while working on the development of the e-payment ecosystem for a government financial regulator.

Scrum

Our experience has proven that Scrum is currently one of the most popular Agile frameworks. It’s based on an iterative approach, constant customer-vendor communication, and high development speed. Under Scrum, all work scope is divided into sprints ranging from two to a maximum of four weeks in duration, with exact start and end dates. Due to tight time frames, difficult tasks have to be divided into smaller ones, so the team learns faster.

Scrum is applicable for nearly every project. For instance, we used it to deliver the remote patient monitoring platform.

Kanban

At the heart of Kanban is a continuous workflow structure that makes IT teams flexible and allows them to adapt to changing priorities. Work tasks are represented by cards on a Kanban board where they can be moved from one stage of the workflow to another. There is no regular schedule or predefined deadlines, therefore updates are released as they are ready.

Kanban ensures high mobility of the team, therefore it is very common in modern project management. This was one of the main reasons we picked it to develop the fleet management system.
