Software Development Methodologies

We use cutting-edge software development methodologies,

where excellence meets swiftness.

Design Thinking Mindset

Antasya ethos is based on design thinking mindset, which is strongly oriented to both obvious and hidden needs of our customers and users. Antasya team prioritises creative user-centered and agile approach to spread and scale-up structured improvements to daily work routine.


Design Thinking Mindset presupposes the following stages: empathise, define, ideate, prototype and test.


Methodologies We Adopted

Software Development Methodologies are simply structured processes or a set of frameworks that are meant to provide smooth software development according to the project requirements.


Methodologies we use are as follows:

Agile – DevOps – Lean – Prototype – XP – RAD


Transparency – Inspection – Adaptation

Antasya frequently turns to Scrum framework that is designed to help teams and companies to effectively communicate and collaborate in order to generate valuable solutions for complex problems.

Our Scrum Team begins with brief planning and prioritising tasks, dividing responsibilities effectively, holding daily meetings for keeping track of pending and finished tasks. As for artifacts, you can totally rely on Antasya Scrum Team with regard to sprint planning, product backlog building and accomplishment to reach the sum of all the Product Backlog items completed, i.e., increment.

Sprints are typically held to discuss the following:

1) what have been completed

2) what should be completed

3) obstacles and challenges Scrum Team have faced and might face.

When the Scrum Team presents the results of its work to stakeholders or future users, most impactful improvements can also be addressed and added to the next Sprint Backlog.   


Customer Collaboration – Working Software – Adaptiveness to Changes – Individuals over Tools

Agile Development Methodology is the most favoured software development approaches that improves quality and speed to market,

boosts motivation and productivity of IT teams.

Antasya team is geared to deliver superior customer experience through agile innovation. We guarantee permanent delivery of flawless software, creative and adaptive teamwork, lean development, openness to changes that improve customers satisfaction, work velocity and team morale.


Cross-functional collaboration is vital for Agile. Therefore, future users’ or our partner’s feedback and involvement are of crucial importance. Agile is a standard practice for projects, where market environment is unpredictable, problems are complex and the scope is unclear, product’s features are not defined. We make our way through incremental changes, if needed, and remain consistently flexible to potential modifications to the initial roadmap. 


Culture – Automation – Measurement

To overcome the drawbacks of a traditional way to develop software, we consider DevOps approach that brings together developers

and operations team throughout the entire process of developing, deploying, and managing applications or software.   

In a DevOps environment, software is developed, built, tested and released more promptly by means of agile principles implementation and more cohesive teamwork.

We are ensure our team meets KPIs. DevOps approach allows us to release faster, produce higher-quality software and work smarter, while reducing lead time. We focus on:

& Monitoring

We use monitoring and observability as crucial requirements for successful application management. They are based on predefined sets of metrics and logs. We turn to application logs and metrics to evaluate all data going through the system, including telemetry data to make predictions about the functioning of a complex system, diagnose errors and fix them.


We integrate automated testing into the initial stage of a testing lifecycle to ensure the code function appropriately and flawlessly after implementing any change. This also helps us to save precious time used up for unproductively for manual testing.


We use a powerful tool of modern engineering, that is continuous deployment, where the code is deployed to production, tested for correctness or automatically reverted when wrong or accepted if correct. This software deployment process enables us to avoid  unfruitful changes that might delay the entire process.


Minimising Waste – Optimising Efficiency – Speeding Up Development

We leverage the Lean Approach, when there is a need of focusing on easily changeable software created in a short period of time with a limited budget and less amount of workflow.

Our team will select the most appropriate and befitting approach for the development of your software taking into consideration essential features of a future product, its core functions. This approach ensures delivering complex project on a tight schedule, keeping a codebase simple and decreasing response time to a minimum.  


Seven Principles we stick to:


RAD (Rapid Application Development)

Early Integration – Adaptability – Compartmentalisation

Antasya specialists take advantage of RAD methodology, when there are a shorter time frame for software development and an active feedback from users to better shape software design and functions.


RAD is a way to respond to the improvement scope with maximum flexibility and development process with less defects.


Advantages of RAD model

XP - Extreme Programming

Simplicity – Communication – Courage – Feedback – Respect

For those who would like to be involved in development process in person and be frequently in touch with our developers team, we may recommend XP approach.

XP is quite a responsive to dynamic changes methodology with regards to software development, which can be characterised by pair programming and on-going code refactoring that allows to keep a simple design, which in its turn is easily optimised any time. XP approach permits all developers of the team to make code changes.

The main advantage of XP is that it grants costs and time saving required per project realisation by reducing documentation burden of the team and solving problems through discussions inside the team via vis-à-vis communication.

When we turn to XP methodology, we stick to certain common practices, which can be clustered in 3 groups:


Test-driven Development:

To be released every piece of code passes the test, thus, immediate feedback allows to produce reliable software.

The Planning Game: The development team and our partner get together to discuss and approve a product’s features, to prioritise user requirements and assign tasks.

On-site Team & Partner: Feedback loops are of great importance; therefore, every member’s involvement is crucial in answering questions, setting priorities and resolving disputes if necessary.    

Pair Programming:

Pair programming suggests two developers working together, where one of them is focused on writing code, the other one reviews code and fixes mistakes, which results in high-quality software.


Continuous Integration: Our team commits code multiple times a day, performing continuous delivery, detects and fixes errors, tests and integrates them before moving to the next stage.

Code Refactoring: Our goal is to continuously improve code, i.e., to keep it simple. Refactoring means eliminating redundancy and getting rid of unnecessary functions, increasing code coherency.

Small Releases: Incremental updates and releases are kept small, simple and regular to detect bugs early and minimise halting.


Simple Design: A simplified design is the right one, it passes all tests, contains no duplicate code, the one that has been created for the features to be implemented.

Collective Code Ownership: The whole team is responsible for the design and structure of a system. Every team member can review and update code. This encourages the team to cooperate and come up with new ideas.

System Metaphor: System metaphor is capable of making overall system design and structure understandable to new people.

Coding Standards: All team members are allowed to read, share and refactor code with ease to encourage feelings of collective ownership.


User Involvement – Quick Feedback – Emphasis on Functionality

Creating software from scratch takes massive effort and solid investment. We make our partner familiar with a visual prototype of the product before the actual product is delivered to better understand the system and identify functional requirements.

Being a quick mock-up prototype gives our client a general idea of the product’s appearance and its functionality. You are always welcomed and encouraged to provide your valuable feedback to the design team after every iteration.


Prototype model would be a good option for those, who prefer to see how the product will look once it is completed. It is suggested for user interfaces, high technology software-intensive systems and systems with complex algorithms.


There are 6 steps we follow:

Identify basic requirements.

We define the scope of requirements for the system together with a stakeholder.


Create a concept sketch.

We explore ideas with a fresh mind-set keeping the target supplier and future users in mind.


Build a virtual prototype.

We build a virtual looks-like and works-like prototype for the customer to see a potential product early in its life cycle.

Get user feedback.

Your feedback is our greatest asset. The prototype undergoes testing by future users in order to evaluate its functionality and detect its strong and weak sides. Every comment, suggestion is truly precious for our developer team.

Define changes and refine a prototype.

At this stage, new requirements can be easily accommodated, missing functionalities can be figured out and errors are fixed, thereby, saving money, effort and contributing enormously to the overall quality of the product.

Develop a final version.

After numerous stages of iteration, augmentation and testing have been completed, we ultimately move to developing a final and tangible version of the prototype. It is also can be reused in the future for another complicated project.
