Oxford Software Development Services encompasses a full life-cycle methodology approach that includes comprehensive planning, execution, and operational maintenance of IT-related projects.
Project Management services and methodologies are based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK), an approach widely accepted and utilized by federal agencies.
Software services provided by Oxford leverage the best practice involved with Agile Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) approach, aligned with federal agency requirements. Oxford goes beyond established methodologies and takes into account your organization’s structure, enterprise frameworks, capabilities, and culture when implementing strategic IT initiatives and providing software development services support.
Our Agile principles include satisfying our customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software and achieving short mean times between releases. An impediment to Agile maturity is development silos, where analysts, developers, and testers only know their piece of the application or the application portfolio.
We advocate following short cycle times to minimize these concerns, and we advocate Scrum-of-Scrums to achieve cross-team coordination, enabling analysts, developers, and testers to hear the activities of other teams. As each of our Agile team improves their maturity, our developers will collaborate more closely with analysts and testers, supporting them in their tasks. Utilizing this approach, we have successfully migrated legacy applications for multiple government agencies.
