Processes and Methodologies

Epoch Online employs well-established, highly productive development methodologies like Agile, Scrum, TDD, Continues Integration, etc. Depending on the size of the project or project iteration, a few of the phases might be the following:

  • Discovery
  • Documentation
  • Development
  • Deployment

Of course, every project is unique and the phases of one project or iteration may look different from another. The one constant is our insistence on frequent team collaboration.  In addition, stakeholders are always included and must approve the planning and implementation and completion of each phase or iteration of a project.
