Expert software development that blends sophisticated technology with elegant design
Strong requirements and planning are essential to delivering a successful software project. To achieve that, Gavant works with stakeholders to identify user personas and the functions they need to perform. The process mitigates risk by aligning scope with business objectives. As a result, the strategy aligns development and delivery with business priorities.
Design is so much more than what the software looks like. It's how the user navigates through the app and interacts with the content. Sketches and wireframes help to illustrate the vision and give clarity to the requirements. Once complete, both sides have established solid expectations about what done looks like for a delivered project. As a result, there's no surprises.
Modern software requires a robust architecture that ensures scalability, security, privacy, extensibility and maintainability. As an AWS partner, we build software on a world-class infrastructure. This platform promotes continuous learning for staying current with evolving trends in software development. In short, the comprehensive tools and services enable us to code quickly and efficiently.
Software development today requires talent across multiple disciplines. For instance, a typical web app needs frontend programming, API programming, and database design. Gavant draws from a deep bench of experienced engineers that use industry-standard design patterns, frameworks and libraries. Always forward looking, we build for today and plan for tomorrow.
High quality begins in programming and so unit testing serves a critical role right up front. Augmenting that, Gavant has a team of QA engineers to incorporate a mix of manual and automated testing. This includes browser and device compatibility testing across all major platforms. Beyond functional testing, we focus on performance, security, compatibility and accessibility.
Gavant offers a variety of ongoing support and maintenance programs that align with business priorities. We provide access to a ticket system, where support personnel can engage with users to work through issues. Additionally, we support reactive and proactive maintenance of the hosting environment and serve as the responsible party when something unexpected takes place.
As an AWS partner, we fully manage and maintain the infrastructure across all environments - development, candidate, staging and production. We set up comprehensive monitoring and alerts so that we can respond to service incidents as fast as possible. Beyond that, we maintain the source code and CI pipeline to facilitate ongoing delivery of new features.
Strong project management is a cornerstone of successful software development. There's a variety of frameworks and some are more trendy than others. But, the fact is that each of them has merits and each project is unique. Gavant's unique process combines elements from these frameworks in a way that can easily adapt based on client needs. It's a disciplined approach centered on a few specific tenets.
Use the Right Tools
Here's a sampling of the technologies and frameworks we use on a regular basis. It's by no means an exhaustive list and every project is unique. But, the art of software development is being versatile and selecting the right tools for the job.
