DevOps Development & Project Management Methodology
DevOps is a modern approach emerging from the collision of two major related IT trends. It signifies an expanded understanding of the value of collaboration between development and operations staff throughout all stages of the development lifecycle when creating and operating a service, and defines the importance of operations in our increasingly service-oriented world.
DevOps Methodology quickly gained attention due to its strong affinities with Agile and lean approaches. The old view of operations tended towards the “Dev” side being more important and the “Ops” side being involved only after development has been done. At AuroSys, we consider DevOps as an outgrowth of Agile Software Development prescribing close collaboration of Customers, Product Management, Developers and QA to bridge the gaps and rapidly iterate towards product development. Born of the need to improve IT service delivery, the DevOps movement emphasizes Communication, Collaboration and Integration between Software Developers and IT operations.

Agile Development Methodology
Agile methodology ensures higher level of customer satisfaction by delivering the solutions promptly and proficiently. Agile methodology gives our clients an opportunity to be a part of the development cycle. Moreover, feedbacks from users are incorporated in the product lifecycle guaranteeing our clients get exactly what they expect out of the application.
Agile methodology is an alternative to traditional project management, typically preferred by clients in software development. It helps the development teams respond to unpredictability through incremental, iterative work cadences. Agile methodologies are an alternative to waterfall, or traditional sequential development.
