Cegedim Insurance Solutions deploys a development based on "agile" methodology.
This is very distinct from more standard methodologies such as the V- or waterfall models, which require each stage in the project to be completed before testing and roll-out.
These are predictive approaches. The main issue they throw up is the late detection of risks, requiring the development phase to be completed before the test phase can begin.
Agile methods were born out of the realisation that it is counterproductive and risky to plan each and every detail of a product before development. This is particularly the case for IT projects, wich always throw up unforeseen challenges.
This is why Cegedim Insurance Solutions has integrated agile methods into its solution development: this process allows for optimal results within set deadlines.
