Agile methodology

An agile approach when developing our solutions

Agile methodology

An agile approach when developing our solutions

Traditional methodologies such as V- or waterfall models, require each stage in the project to be completed before customer testing and roll-out can happen. These are predictive approaches and the main issue they throw up is the late detection of risks, requiring the entire development phase to be fully completed before the customer sees what they are getting. Agile methods were born out of a realisation that it is counterproductive and risky to plan every detail of a product before development begins. This is particularly the case for IT projects where unforeseen challenges often arise. We at Cegedim Insurance Solutions have therefore integrated Agile methods and an Agile mindset, in particular the Scrum Framework, into out solution development. This way of working allows for small increments of usable value to be delivered to our customers earlier than traditional methods would allow, as well as enabling required changes to be flagged sooner, thereby reducing risk and keeping the solution current.

Four fundamental values of agile
Value individuals before processes and tools

We strive to build teams that work seamlessly together to achieve the product goal regardless of the tools or processes that are necessarily needed to get there.

Value customer collaboration

Our goal is to continuously maintain contact with our customers to ensure that the solutions we deliver remain relevant to their needs and requirements.

Value working software over documentation

Functioning software will be delivered to our customers on a regular basis and follow up documentation will be supplied where necessary. We strive to make our software self-documenting wherever possible.

Responding to change

By adopting an iterative delivery approach of small increments, we ensure that our customers can respond quickly to us, and we are therefore able to respond to their feedback and any further changes needed.
