Analysis of business requirements

Analysis of business requirements is critical to the success of a systems or software project. The requirements should be documented, actionable, measurable, testable, traceable, related to identified business needs or opportunities, and defined to a level of detail sufficient for system design.

Arcadia offers different models of requirement management.

Agile methodologies like SCRUM allow to manage changes in the requirements according to changes in business and environment.

Choose the optimum solution

Typically, there are a number of possible solutions for a software system.

To choose one that suits customer needs in the best way, Arcadia experts analyze functional requirements, non-functional demands such as usability, security, performance, maintainability, take into account environment where the system is going to work, costs involved in developing and maintaining it.

Then Arcadia proposes to customer a few solutions: for each of them pros and cons are clearly described. We openly discuss with customer different options and suggest one of them.


Proof of concept & feasibility study

We suggest a cost-reducing strategy and can undertake research to determine whether an idea or concept is technically feasible and financially viable by using our experience in product design. We will plan and cost the product’s development cycle to prove that the production of a particular material is achievable.

Design of architecture and UX

Architecture is the skeleton of a software system and it is crucial to create it properly. The main inputs for the architecture design are functional requirements, quality attributes (security, performance, reliability), the target environments and integrations with other systems. The process of designing is iterative: from high-level architecture of the entire system to details in specific parts.

User experience is designed based on key use cases and the target audience of the system. Arcadia offers entire line of services: from visual style to interaction design adapted for Web, tablets and mobile. Same as architecture, process of UX design is iterative; customer feedback drives it.


Development and quality assurance

Be confident in the quality of delivery: we enforce software development best practices by employing industry-leading techniques, such as automation, Test Driven Development, Behavior Driven Development, Continuous Integration and Deployment-Minded Delivery, to maximize the stability, security and scalability of your product.

Our development team is committed to following rigorous coding standards and a series of robust architectural principles that support our stringent Quality Assurance (QA) procedures in ensuring delivery of the highest quality solutions.

On receiving system design documents, the work is divided into modules/units and actual coding starts. Since in this phase the code is produced, it is the main focus for the developer.

After the code is developed, it is tested against the requirements to make sure that the product is actually solving the needs addressed and gathered during the requirements phase. During this phase unit testing, integration testing, system testing, acceptance testing are done.

After successful testing the product is delivered / deployed to our customer.


Delivery of working solution

Depending on a project, Arcadia can deliver working product in different ways: it can be an installation program or binaries, migration scripts and detailed installation instructions. In many cases, Arcadia’s people perform deployment to production environment and ensure everything is working.
