Recommended Methods

  • Application of proven software engineering techniquesn (e.g. RUP, agile programming, peer reviews) in order to achieve high quality deliverables
  • Use of proven technologies (e.g. relational data base systems like Oracle, Sybase, DB2) in order to achieve excellent reliability and stability of FIST products and to secure your investments.
  • Where aimed at, the software is constructed in a configurable manner in order to be easily adaptable to changing requirements. This will support your time to market goals and assure the future usability of the systems.
  • Focus on software quality assurance: testability is part of our designs and test data and test cases are developed in parallel to coding
