From offices in Seattle, Knoxville and Iasi, Romania, we guide you through a time-tested process that delivers maximum return with minimal stress.
All of IFTHENWOW's talent, both our American staff and our European programmers, participate in a mentor-apprentice program.
In addition to passing programming language competency tests prior to employment, they also undergo intensive quarterly performance reviews.
Did you know 60-percent of our programmers hold Masters degrees or higher? The only way to protect our reputation is to ensure we only hire and promote the best.
These software architects, software engineers, programmers, coders and UI designers adhere to a process that is designed around iterative and incremental development that is based on core Agile principles.
Utilizing an Agile (Scrum) framework, we partner with clients in a shared tight focus on the underlying business purpose and the regular delivery of working software.
Intrinsic to this process are daily communication, constant feedback from the client, sprint planning and sprint reviews.
Speed of component progress yields speed of requirements yields speed of software and business determinations yields, ultimately, a faster speed to market.
This methodology has worked to limit risk for clients, proactively identify and mitigate feasibility and cost issues, control times to minimum viable product and market, and spearhead successful collaborations that turn single projects into multi-year, multi-scope partnerships.
From initial diagnostics, planning, analysis and requirements definition (site map, wire frame, prototype) and content assembly and preliminary architecture to concepting, design and programming to usability testing and launch...our web and software development process reduces headaches while increasing your ultimate satisfaction.
High-level discussions regarding project's business purpose.
Preliminary conversation regarding overall functionality.
Re-visitation of business purpose & overall functionality.

IT architect, programmers and business analysts assigned.
Business discussions with IT architects, team leads, business analysts, and client's product owners, including mockups (design sketches) to guide team.
Largest part of functionality well-documented in PROJECT SPECIFICATIONS, including smallest details and targeted USER CASES.
Last tweaks to final specifications prior to build-up.
SPRINT PLANNING: team decision as to implementation details, effort required and influence on the storylines that can be included in the sprint (those not selected for inclusion roll into subsequent sprint) -- does it fit the sprint? Situation presented to business analysts, etc.
At each estimation, each story split into parts called issues.
DEVELOPMENT: developers tackle tasks according to proficiency and interest.
Testers begin to write use cases.
As developers complete stories, software testers begin testing as well as communicating with client's testing team who can accept/reject.
After ALL STORIES FINALIZED, a newer version delivered and demonstrated for client.
