Quintegra uses a proven methodology to consistently produce application development solutions for our clients. Our methodology is founded on principles of the agile development, coupled with SEI CMM assessed processes. We have adapted these approaches to the requirements of application development in a highly collaborative, cross-border environment. The result is an approach that facilitates rapid, incremental development, helping our clients to mitigate risk, lower lifecycle cost, and speed time to deployment. Application development outsourcing ensures that geography no longer poses a hurdle, through leveraging upon a 24x7 global delivery model.

Key features of our custom application development approach include:

Agile-based process-oriented development principles
Near-zero black box approach for involving clients from end-to-end stages of the development cycle
Predefined methodologies and frameworks
Structured and managed requirements definition process
Proprietary tools to improve effectiveness of the development process
Strong focus on quality
Rigorous program management processes
Effective communication and collaboration processes

Quintegra follows the 4D methodology for custom application development:



In the Define phase, we define the expectations and requirements for the desired solution. Through investigative discussions with the client, Quintegra facilitates the creation of a comprehensive plan for which is based on a solid understanding of the client’s business goals of application development and constituents that shall enable the achievement of such goals. The Define phase typically addresses the following major areas:

Business process
User experience
Integration points
Location of development work
Organization of teams
Measures of success

The Define phase provides the foundation on which application design is built. Depending on the complexity of the solution to be developed, the deliverables of this phase encompasses:

Project plan
Use case model
Software requirements specification
Risk management plan
User experience framework
Logical architecture diagram
Integration architecture diagram
Quality assurance plan
Project administration plan
Communication plan


The Design phase focuses on three key elements: content, functionality and usability. Other areas addressed in this phase include support and maintenance requirements, resulting hardware/server/database impact, and overall performance and cost issues.

Functional Design
The first design activity is the development of a high-level, structural view of the Web application. This step focuses on determining the content and functionality necessary to meet established business requirements. It is often facilitated by a joint application design (JAD) session between Quintegra and client project teams.

Technical Design
Guided by the functional design, Quintegra’s team will create a detailed application design. Once complete, the templates, graphical elements, and custom code modules necessary to implement the high- level design is initiated. Standards, features, graphics, database connectivity and dynamic report generation are agreed upon during this phase to ensure that users will be able to effectively view and navigate the site depending upon the usage environment. An acceptance test plan is developed as part of the technical design that thoroughly outlines the testing procedures for the system prior to deployment.


Development is generally performed on a separate development system housed at a Quintegra facility as part of our global delivery model. Quintegra mirrors the client’s environment to ensure smooth integration. Alternately, depending upon the client requirements, Quintegra can provide expert resources at the client site in order to carry out the process.

During the Develop stage, integration and setup of all hardware and software required to support the application, including the appropriate operating system, server, and database systems is carried out. This phase also includes a thorough integration, system, functional and acceptance test stage that ensures that the application performs according to its design and quality specifications. Quintegra uses a proprietary Agile-Based Client-Driven (ABCD) development approach that focuses on creating client delight through early and continuous delivery of valuable software using Agile practices.


Final deployment of the solution includes setup and testing of all application components developed by Quintegra at the client’s facility, as well as any required training on the application’s use and operation. Our acceptance procedures include performance testing services encompassing review of architecture and usage, predictive modeling, stress testing, and detailed analysis and recommendations.

Quintegra’s custom application development solutions empower clients with the following winning processes:

Gives clients consistent edge over competition
