Agile Equals Quality

Agile development methodologies promote a project management process that encourages frequent inspection and adaptation of products with our stakeholders and customers. It is a leadership philosophy that encourages teamwork, self-organization and accountability. We have developed a set of engineering best practices that allow for rapid delivery of high quality software, and a holistic project approach that aligns development with customer needs and company goals.

At Olive, our development process is stakeholder driven. Customers are hands-on in the development planning process. By continually involving the stakeholders in our process we bring predictability in both time and cost to software development. This ensures customer’s expectations are met on time and within budget

Aggressive Equals Competitive

Olive's aggressive strategies keep customers happy and stay competitive is to exceed their expectations, early and often. We plan aggressive 6, 9, or 12 week development cycles. The length of the development cycle is adaptive and dependant on the business requirements, customer demands and changing market environments.

Each cycle includes time for planning, development and stabilization, ensuring only robust solutions are released. Our team of developers work collaboratively and iteratively, so customers receive more product in less time at less cost to your business

Approach Equals Cost Savings

We have evolved a unique, highly effective project approach with teams comprised of a project manager, technical lead and a team of skilled developers. Each team is a unique blend which brings a wide breath of expertise, culture and insight to every development effort. This structure also results in a highly efficient development engine which culminates in rapid productization, rapid delivery and cost efficiency for our clients.

Developing holistically ensures stakeholders and customers are involved as the product is being developed which results in better acceptance and higher consumer adoption. This ensures the solution is the right one the first time to market, eliminating costly rework later. Our solutions deliver more product, with less risk, on time and in budget.

Generic Agile Development Process

  • We listen to your vision needs and requirements. Provide you with examples from our experience. Reach an understanding of what needs to be achieved.
  • We'll work with you to provide a visual design of your web site. Mockups and UI design of all major applications will first be presented to you and improved before we move into development.
  • Project is broken into many smaller parts and development starts. Clear milestones are set and weekly updates and live demos are given to ensure features are being implemented according to expectations.
  • We take pride in providing quality work and it's part of our mission statement. In addition to each developer producing quality work, we have a dedicated testing team who ensures no bug is left unfixed and each pixel is properly aligned.
  • Our launch strategy includes attention to all details from making sure there is no disruption of service to meeting our full checklist of launching hundreds of sites.
  • Once the site is live, there will be suggestion from users to further improve the usability or add new features. Continues improvement is the nature of the Internet. We understand this need and will work with you to provide quick but significant improvements to your website.
