Manage or Develop Custom Software

For decades, software has been a game-changer in the business world, providing solutions to automate and streamline operations, enhancing productivity and driving growth. In the early days, businesses had to rely on off-the-shelf software products, where they had to adapt their processes to fit the software. Today, software development has become more flexible. Other companies continue to develop and sell software; however, Atlantic BT offers businesses an even greater service – custom software development.  

At Atlantic BT, we can build and manage anything to meet your specific needs in a cost-effective manner. We can create customizations to the software you’re already using, enhancing functionality and efficiency. We can also develop custom web applications tailored to your individual needs. Businesses no longer have to settle for the best available product and hope it works well for their company. Instead, for a similar investment, they can work with Atlantic BT to build exactly what they want. This is the power of custom software development in today’s business landscape.

How Do We Approach Software Development?

There are many different ways to build software, but we believe there is only one way to build important software that is secure, stable, and easy to use. Over the years we have fine-tuned a process that yields great results and great value.

As the industry has evolved and our experience has grown, we’ve incorporated the best practices into our development process. In fact, we’ve helped a number of software organizations evolve their process using the lessons we’ve learned managing many different applications for many different companies. We began developing critical applications for businesses in 1998. That’s 25+ years of fine-tuning a process that blends standards and flexibility with efficiency and quality. 

Hybrid Agile Process

At Atlantic BT, we believe in the power of a Hybrid Agile process. This approach combines the best aspects of traditional project management methodologies with the flexibility and adaptability of Agile principles. While we deeply respect the Agile Manifesto and the Pragmatic Programmer, we understand that every project is unique and requires a tailored approach to custom software development.

Our Hybrid Agile process allows us to deliver high-quality applications while maintaining the flexibility to adapt to changing requirements. We iterate frequently, deploying working code often to ensure that our clients can see and experience the progress being made. This iterative approach to custom software development allows us to incorporate feedback quickly and make necessary adjustments in real-time.

We also understand the importance of planning and documentation in the development process. By meticulously documenting our work, we can measure progress accurately, manage expectations effectively, and ensure transparency throughout the software development lifecycle. This approach allows us to maintain a clear vision of the project’s goals and objectives, ensuring that we stay on track to meet our clients’ needs.

We view software development as a journey, not a destination. We are committed to continuous improvement, always seeking to learn, adapt, and grow with each project. Our Hybrid Agile Process is a testament to this commitment, providing a framework that promotes innovation, collaboration, and excellence. With Atlantic BT, your vision is our mission.

Quality Assurance (QA) Testing

We believe in the power of combining human ingenuity with machine precision to deliver software that is robust, reliable, and ready for real-world use. Our approach to QA Testing is two-fold. On one hand, we utilize the Cypress Testing framework and Gherkin syntax to automate as many tests as possible. This allows us to quickly identify and address common issues, ensuring the software performs as expected under normal conditions. 

On the other hand, we understand that machines can’t replicate the unpredictability of human behavior. That’s why we have a team of human testers to explore boundary conditions and test the software in various environments. This blend of automated and manual testing ensures a comprehensive evaluation of the software, making sure it’s not just functional, but also user-friendly and intuitive. At Atlantic BT, we’re committed to custom software development that stands up to the demands of your business and provides a seamless experience for your users.

Continuous Integration (CI)

Continuous integration is a practice in software development that allows us to integrate changes and updates in real-time. This practice ensures that the software remains in a deployable state throughout its development. By executing unit tests of business logic, we can verify that each component of the custom software development functions as expected.

Reporting on code conflicts helps us maintain the integrity of the codebase. Scanning for security issues and validating dependencies ensures that the software is secure and reliable. Additionally, by scanning third-party packages for known vulnerabilities, we can mitigate potential risks and safeguard the software against threats. This comprehensive approach to CI helps us deliver high-quality, secure, and efficient software solutions.

Continuous Delivery

In the realm of custom software development, Continuous Delivery (CD) plays a pivotal role. At Atlantic BT, we embrace this approach, ensuring our software developments are always in a state that’s ready for deployment to a production environment. We believe in the power of automation for deployments, leaving the planning and orchestration to our skilled team while machines handle the actual deployment process.

This approach not only increases efficiency but also reduces the risk of human error. By scripting the infrastructure and deployment pipelines from a main branch on the repository, we ensure predictable deployments and maintain a clear record of running code. This method allows us to deliver custom software solutions that are reliable, robust, and ready for real-world use at any given moment.

DevOps

DevOps, a combination of the terms “development” and “operations,” is a set of practices that combines software development and IT operations. It aims to shorten the system development life cycle and provide continuous delivery with high software quality. DevOps is integral to custom software development as it promotes a more agile relationship between development and IT operations.

At Atlantic BT, we offer you the opportunity to integrate with our established DevOps toolchain, accelerating your progress without the need to build a DevOps culture from the ground up. This approach allows us to support your existing development teams effectively, providing them with the necessary tools and practices to enhance their workflow. Read more here about how Atlantic BT’s collaborative DevOps environment benefits our long standing partnership with Conduent.

We offer coaching on key DevOps practices such as deployment automation, application telemetry, and feedback cycles that are fast and controlled. which streamlines the process of moving software from development into production environments. In essence, our DevOps integration service equips your team with the tools and practices necessary for efficient and effective custom software development.
