Today's corporate IT departments are being stretched to their limits. The CIO needs to quickly deploy new IT applications to streamline and integrate IT with ever evolving business processes and changing customer needs. The success for this development depends on timely implementation with limited budgets, thus translating into a faster ROI. AETERNUS SOLUTIONS offers - software development outsourcing services that are geared to meet the requirements of lowering the total costs of IT spending and increasing ROI.
The cornerstone of success of any software application development effort is based on robust methodologies. At AETERNUS SOLUTIONS, we recognize that not all development projects are the same and that a cookie-cutter approach cannot be used across all projects; therefore, AETERNUS SOLUTIONS evaluates each project individually to determine which methodology is the most appropriate.
Based on our detailed assessment of the project, we fine-tune our SpectraAgile methodology to execute the development work.
Custom Application Development Methodologies SpectraAgile:
AETERNUS Agile provides our clients with a competitive advantage by leveraging Agile programming principles to maximize ROI. Our guiding ethos behind this methodology is to "minimize the work not done." The Agile development approach is optimized for handling changing requirements even late in a development phase. Early and continuous delivery of working software ensures that both customer satisfaction and team motivation remain high. Utilization of techniques, such as re-factoring, pair programming, early testing, and frequent builds results in significant reduction in defects, while providing higher transparency and lower risks and costs. To top it all, the need to maintain a constant pace necessitates close interaction between all stakeholders and makes the entire custom application development process more dynamic!
AETERNUS Agile uses a "spiral" approach to software application development. This approach is an adaptation of the Microsoft Solutions Framework, the recommendations from the Object Management Group (OMG), Unified Modeling Language for notation and the Rational Unified Process. The iterative nature of this methodology allows AETERNUS SOLUTIONS to overcome the shortcomings of the traditional "waterfall" approach and helps to better align custom application development to business objectives.
Each iteration is a complete cycle, starting from requirements to implementation. High priority functions are delivered first, while less critical features are developed last. Multiple iterations may be executed in parallel, depending on the nature of the project and availability of client subject-matter experts.

Our AETERNUS Maint methodology is a logical combination of processes, which comprise of proven methods and tools to assimilate customer's business process knowledge and align with their individual standards and procedures. This methodology is powered by the AETERBUS Global Delivery Service, which gives us the flexibility and ability to deliver a unique mix of services, onsite at the customer location, offsite / offshore development centers. This methodology consists of the following four phases: Plan, Transition, Stable and Optimize.
This phase focuses on developing a road map for overall outsourcing of the engagement, a project plan that spells out the roles and responsibilities of both Spectraforce and the client, a detailed work breakdown structure, and the tools and techniques supporting processes like quality assurance, change management, risk management, reporting/communication and measurements.
During this phase, our team utilizes AETERNUSTransfer processes for the collection and understanding of application management and business knowledge by the onsite and offshore staff so that the customer's environment is understood. We create business processes and management procedures to be followed after AETERNUS takes over responsibility. Baseline service level information is obtained as a basis for measuring the engagement progress. Resources from AETERNUS offshore development centers will travel to customer sites to acquire business knowledge expertise. The transition concludes with the transfer of responsibility for application support and/or maintenance from the client to AETERNUS. The cut-over tasks are focused on completing a seamless transition of service from the customer to Spectraforce with no interruption of service.
Cycles are monitored, initial metrics are captured and reported and the workload is executed for the client.
This is the post-evolution period when the complete workload is executed, additional workload is gradually shifted from onsite to offshore, process refinement occurs, metrics are analyzed, and a stable state of operations is reached. The AETERNUS team gains additional experience in both the application management and business knowledge of the customer's environment and uses this knowledge to identify improvements throughout the customer's portfolio of applications.
In this phase, the engagement is put into a continuous improvement mode by capturing and analyzing required metrics related to engagement success. Based on the metrics analysis and lesson learnt, necessary software maintenance and corrective or preventive measures are taken
