4D Methodology Overview

Discover the four D's to better custom software.

4D Methodology Steps

Why following a proven software development methodology matters

Architecting, designing and building custom software is a complex undertaking. The last thing you want is your software development team "winging it" on your dime. To produce repeatable, high quality results, you are going to need a plan, and ours is called the 4D Methodology. Maybe you've heard of it? Building software is similar to any other complex undertaking, such as constructing a building or aircraft. Would you jump on a plane knowing the developers had winged it? Having a plan that has proven to deliver high quality results does matter.

Rob's Take

Our industry does not have formal standards or inspections in place, like almost every other industry has. In some ways that is good, because it does not slow down progress. But it is also problematic if you are trying to get your software application built properly. How do you know your team has any clue what they are doing? I think there are a lot of software development methodologies that can produce high quality results, so I wouldn't get hung up on any one method. But make sure that the team you partner with does have a plan. Ask them to share with you the process, and if possible, even get a hard-copy or link to a page on their site. Most companies do not put this information up on the web, but I think it is critical for you to understand that a process is being followed. That is why we post ours.
