A strong software engineering and development expertise

Focus has a wide experience in developing software engineering projects with its international partners. Our aim is to assure that we meet or exceed customer's expectations and that they can retain full ownership of all intellectual property rights and software code.

Our software development process is continuously enhanced to improve software systems development and maintenance in order to get better product quality. It includes the following steps:

Planning

The first task in designing software solution is to deeply understand our client's requirements. Our experienced team of engineers intervenes to guide you by recognizing the incomplete or ambiguous requirements. Then a proposal is designed by our technical experts which includes executive summary, the project development plan (scope of the development is determined and clearly stated), the implementation plan and schedules, efforts and costs. This would give a clear picture to our clients of what to expect as deliverables and by when.

Project Execution

Once the project is initiated, we carry out workshops in collaboration with our clients to deeply understand and capture their requirements. In the meantime, the team development project would be built in Tunis. This team will be subjected to relevant training and orientation, if needed.

Planning phase is followed by design, implementation, and testing phases. In implementation phase, our engineers will actually program the code for the project. After that in testing, they ensure that the bugs are recognized as early as possible.

We plan our visit for integration and system testing at last phase. Each phase involves a series of internal and external reviews. Reviews at critical phases will sometimes involve you either on-site or off-shore. Detailed documents are generated at each stage for the purpose of future maintenance and enhancement is done throughout development. This helps in succeeding phases.

Project Delivery

Once all types of testing are completed and no defects are left open in the system, the project is ready to be deployed to the production server at the client site as per the requirements. Delivery related QA activities are performed. Different project closure reports are prepared and sign off is taken from client. This marks the successful delivery of the system.

Project organization

Structure of project teams which is followed in most of the development software projects is composed of:

  • Account Manager (non-technical, client satisfaction and relationship building)
  • Project Manager (planning, monitoring/tracking, reviews and overall control)
  • Project Technical Coordinator (technical solutions and co-ordination)
  • Development, Testing and Integration engineers
