We believe delivering custom build digital products to client’s complex business requirement requires more than just an understanding of different programming languages. It requires the best mix of proper planning and development practices like prototyping and iterative development.
A software development methodology in software engineering is a framework to implement projects within specific protocols. It is used to structure, plan, and control the process of developing an information system. Two of the most common are Agile and Waterfall software development methodology which we use to complete the projects. Both Agile and Waterfall software development methodologies feature a set of metrics and critical thresholds that showcase the team’s efficiency.
Agile software development is based on an incremental, iterative approach. Agile methodologies are open to changing requirements and no of in-depth planning at the beginning of the project is required. At Softgainz we use SCRUM methodology to implement Agile.
Advantages of Scrum
The waterfall methodology is considered the traditional software development method. It follows a sequential, linear process and is the most popular version of the software development life cycle (SDLC) for software engineering and IT projects.

When You Should Use Waterfall And
When To Use Agile ?
We recommend using Waterfall if
- Requirements are very well known and fixed.
- Customers know exactly what they want in advance.
- You’re working with orderly and predictable projects.
- The project is very simple or you’ve done it many times before.
And you should use Agile if
- Rapid deployment is the goal.
- The final product isn’t clearly defined.
- You anticipate any kind of changes during the project.
- The clients/stakeholders need the ability to modify the scope.
