[LightSky’s products and services are] so customizable, and [they’re] willing to work with us to get what we want.”
Sue H. Moeschl, Director of Information Services
LightSky, like many other Web firms, uses the analogy of home construction to explain the Web development process.
To have a quality outcome that meets all the specifications - both functional and aesthetic - we have to follow a process that includes discovery, brainstorming, planning, and building. Budgets determine the general scope and features, and once the homeowner sees the structure they may decide to change the details; crown molding becomes a must-have, and granite countertops become a like-to-have or a won’t-have-until-later. Perhaps the contractor recommends installing a central vacuum system because there are so many stairs, which means that the living room closet will be smaller. That’s essentially how the Agile process works; it allows for flexibility rather than rigid requirements that lock the client and the developer into a plan that may be several months or years old.
Agile offers several benefits over traditional waterfall development:
Agile liberates both the client and the LightSky team to continually bring new ideas to the table, uniting both entities into a team rather than dividing us into sides of “client” and “vendor.”
The Agile Process can save your organization money and provide you a better solution. Contact LightSky today to learn more about how we can help your business grow.
