Our software factory area counts with specialized IT professionals (engineers, developers, analysts and architects) in developing, integrating, designing and maintaining software products according to the needs of your business. We implement solutions covering all the stages of the software development cycle.


The services we provide as integrators and factory software solutions enhance the competitiveness and efficacy of our client’s business, making the most of their budget, in less time and with low risks. Over the years we have had opportunities to work with different methodologies, from the very formal like Waterfall, RUP and CMMi to the more agile like Scrum or Extreme Programming. Based on all this experience, we have optimized our project management methodology to provide the right mix of control, visibility and flexibility, while maintaining the best throughput possible. Because software development is a highly interactive and iterative process, we have embraced several guidelines from Scrum, such as:

Sprint-based planning and deliveries
We recommend that all the features of the system should be broken down into short iterations or phases, which in Scrum are called sprints. A sprint can be as short as one week or as long as two months, depending on the complexity of the system, the technology and team preferences. Most often, we use 2 to 3 week sprints in our projects. The system features are prioritized by the Client and allocated to the different sprints. When a sprint is about to start, the Team gets together with the Client to estimate each feature and perform more detailed planning than the one that was done at the beginning of the project. During the sprint, the finishing date is never altered as well as the features that are to be included on the active sprint. If for any reason, there is not enough time for some features to be implemented, those features are then re-added to the Project Backlog, where all the features are kept for tracking.


Daily "scrums" or stand-up meetings
The development team has a stand-up meeting every work day where every team member will be asked what they did yesterday, what they will be doing today and if they have anything that is blocking them. This quick meeting lets the Team Lead know where things are and make sure problems are detected right away before they jeopardize the time lines. Since we believe in providing 100% visibility into the projects and the process in general, our clients are always welcome to participate in these daily meetings through web conference or phone conference.


Proper governance
Our experience has taught us that even the best performing Scrum teams still need to have proper project governance and South Partner has established a set of proven processes that ensure projects stay on track and minimize surprises.
