Result-driven agile web development

Based on agile methods, AOE develops Enterprise web solutions in which it is clear from the outset that the requirements will evolve during the development phase.

Software projects rarely end the way they were originally planned. In complex projects requirements can change during the development process – this is almost always the case. Development methods must therefore be flexible enough to allow changes during the development process.

Benefits of agile development compared to traditional approaches

In traditional approaches, such as the waterfall model or V-model, results can be seen only toward the end of the development phase. The model in this case has a sequential character that does not allow it to revert to previous levels of development. Possible modifications are then usually only possible by going through another development phase – unplanned changes are therefore always associated with great effort and costs and always cause launch delays.

Agile development on the other hand is characterized by flexible processes that allow changes at any time during the development process. Development in this approach occurs during several planning- and development cycles. By using agile development, our customers benefit from flexible processes, quicker project results as well as accompanying lowered costs. In this approach we follow the guiding principles of the “Manifesto for Agile Software Development”:

  • Individuals and interactions are more important than processes and tools
  • Working software is more important than comprehensive documentation
  • Working software is more important than comprehensive documentation
  • Responding to change is more important than following a plan

It is crucial to quickly provide the customer with functional applications with a high business value and to continuously develop them to fulfill customer requirements. This is done in manageable iterative cycles while constantly involving the customer.

The use of agile methods is a core element of web development at AOE. Since 2007 we almost exclusively use agile methods for software development and can refer to hundreds of successful projects for renowned international customers, in which Scrum and Kanban were utilized. Beyond that, we are active in the agile community and hold regular user groups and information workshops about the topic of agile development.
