Software Engineering Services

Dakota provides the entire range of life-cycle services necessary to develop and implement IT systems. Dakota's processes are based on our experience implementing industry best practices and our first hand knowledge of what it takes to build and implement software solutions. While adept at all software life cycle methodologies (incremental, waterfall, iterative, prototyping) we've had more success using an iterative develop, test, and integrate agile methodology. Complete project functionality is developed in a series of iterations (sprints) that build functionality up, allowing early testing of core features, and continual user feedback. These practices allow stakeholders to quickly test functionality to see how well it meets expectations. Key to our successful delivery of software solutions is our ability to adapt our internal process to our customer's methodology and commitment to the benefit of collaborative team work.
