Intelligent Light has made a major commitment to revamping our development process using agile development methods. This change was made to increase our responsiveness to customer needs.
We look to our users to share their needs and help us set the direction for product development. Moreover, we involve our customers in the development and testing process prior to release so we can be sure we are meeting their needs. This direct involvement has lead to many good ideas being recognized and these ideas have improved the implementation of several new features for all. The changes have impacted all engineering projects and the impact is already seen in FieldView 15, XDBview, and in FieldView services projects and applied research.
"FieldView users from the Aerospace and Formula One industries have been key in designing both FieldView 15 and XDBview, making sure we had it right the first time", says Yves-Marie Lefebvre, FieldView Product Chief.
As the goal is to increase responsiveness, the new process will help us deliver multiple releases each year, improve our adherence to schedule commitments, and enable more rapid deployment of new features and fixes.
"Every customer involved so far in our Agile Development Process has expressed satisfaction and the will to get involved even more," Lefebvre continues. "But this is just the beginning. And we're expecting more of our users to join the movement".
