Key components of our methodology are communication, flexibility, feedback, and adaptability.  

Discovery and Planning: Sequent’s Business Analysts and Project Manager work with stakeholders to finalize scope and project plan. Steps during this phase include: 

  • Requirement Gathering: Understand and document needs, goals, and challenges.
  • Feasibility Analysis: Assess project feasibility and phases for development and long-term growth in terms of technology, resources, and timeline.
  • Scope Definition: Define, document, and get agreement on project scope, objectives, and deliverables.

Design: Sequent data engineers and user experience experts work with stakeholders to design and document key design elements of the solution, including: 

  • Architecture Design: Create a high-level system architecture and technical specifications.
  • UI/UX Design: Develop user interface wireframes and design elements for a seamless user experience.
  • Database Design: Design the database structure and relationships based on data requirements.
  • Security Design: Design data security and access controls. 

Development: Our agile approach to software development allows for constant collaboration and iterative feedback from stakeholders. Steps during this phase include: 

  • Coding: Responsive frameworks allow for portability and modular components. Our developers write code according to specifications using chosen programming languages and frameworks. 
  • Testing: Conduct unit testing to ensure individual components function correctly.
  • Integration: Integrate different modules and components into a unified system.
  • DevOps Build and Deploy: Regular builds and deployment use software delivery CI/CD pipelines, automation and quality testing. 

Quality Assurance (QA): Our quality testers and business analyst work with stakeholders to confirm functionality and expectations. This includes: 

  • End-to-End Testing: Perform comprehensive testing—functional, usability, performance, security—to identify and fix bugs.
  • User Acceptance Testing (UAT): Involve end-users to validate if the software meets their requirements.
  • Testing Scripts and Logs: Testers and business stakeholders build test scripts and log results to ensure scope and goals identified earlier are met.

Deployment: Our DevOps engineers work with technology and business stakeholders to deploy tested software into production environments. This phase includes: 

  • Deployment Planning: Plan the rollout strategy, considering factors like user availability, training, data migration, and system integration.
  • Installation and Configuration: Deploy the software in the production environment.

Maintenance and Support: Establish support plan that includes regular monitoring, bug fixes, enhancements and new features. Our offering includes: 

  • Monitoring: Monitor the software for performance issues, security vulnerabilities, and user feedback. 
  • Updates and Enhancements: Implement updates, patches, and new features as required.
  • Customer Support: We offer email-based production support with our “Sense” support system. This provides ongoing support and troubleshooting assistance to users.
