Our strategic consulting facilitates improvements in IT Systems, and IT Services offering design and development of new features at a lesser cost. Thus have a lot of scope for business process improvement.

We also manage mission-critical business process improvements to offer migration services from legacy systems to next-generation systems at a reduced cost.


The Application Development and Maintenance team has expertise in all industry-standard development methodologies. Include Waterfall, Iterative, Spiral, Prototype, Component Based, Rational Unified Process (RUP), Rapid Application Development (RAD), Agile, and XP methodologies.


The iBUILD delivery model is GRINFOTEKs proprietary designed by the Center of Excellence (CoE) for application development and maintenance. Its methodology is based on DTAGUARD’s fundamental principle of facilitating clients with business process improvements through strategic consulting for IT Services Outsourcing.

iBUILD brings the best practices of a global delivery model with 14 years of offshore project execution. It is based on CMM level 5 software development processes and a proven Six Sigma approach in Application Development and IT Services.

Six Sigma techniques are incorporated in the iBUILD methodology for better management of customer requirements and ensuring robust fail-proof design. They include Quality Function Deployment (QFD), Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA), Pugh Matrix, and Fishbone Analysis.

Our expertise includes all industry-standard development methodologies like Waterfall, Iterative, Spiral, Prototype, Component Based Development, Rational Unified Process (RUP), Rapid Application Development (RAD), Agile, and XP methodologies will be used with iBUILD to ensure quality work & in-time products delivery.

iBUILD breaks the application development process into five phases with specific toll gates for each phase. It is based on the requirement of customer interaction and utilization of offshore resources.

Collecting Requirement Phase

This is done at the client site with an experienced team from GRINFOTEK which is basically analyzing their requirements. For complex initiatives and multi-site requirements gathering, we employ Quality Function Deployment (QFD) to identify Critical To Quality (CTQ) requirements of stakeholders and Voice of Customer (VOC) tools and techniques to understand customer wants that are subsequently flowed down using QFD from user requirements to design.

Design Phase

Design is usually performed offshore with onsite participation driven by customer involvement in defining architecture. Architecture definition design is driven by reference architecture from a knowledge base available in iNODE, the technology-specific Center of Excellence (CoE) within GRINFOTEK. For critical and complex components, the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) technique is used to make the design more robust. Pugh Matrix trade-off analysis technique is used to choose the best design options for a solution.

Application development and testing are executed offshore. Learnings and reusable artifacts from past engagements are extensively used, leveraging the Knowledge Management framework within GRINFOTEK.

UAT & Implementation Phase

Depending on the client’s requirement, GRINFOTEK enters into a long-term support (or maintenance) contract. GRINFOTEK offers a cost-effective solution and brings in year-on-year cost reduction by continuously improving the support processes leveraging Six Sigma DMAIC methodology. A metrics management program driven by GRINFOTEK Open Envelop Methodology (OEM) and DMAIC causal analysis tools is used to identify areas for improvement.


The Application Development and Maintenance Team of the IT Services Group is proficient in Multi-Threaded Time Boxed Methodology. This offers business process improvement in the areas of software development.

The Guiding principle of the Multi-threaded boxed Methodology are listed here

Short Time Boxes of 4-6 weeks
Multi-Threaded Development
Multi-Threaded Time Boxed Process
Parallel Delivery of Development and Test Artifacts
Continuity and Consistency of Core & Integration Team

The business benefits are cycle time reduction, quicker time into the market, high quality, and scope to accommodate changes. The prioritized requirements will be funneled through to various teams to perform detailed requirement analysis. The approach is such that when one team completes requirement gathering and starts with design, the next team carries out the rest of the requirements. Finally, the requirement will be delivered in various packets of the logical units.

Rational Unified

GRINFOTEK follows the Rational Unified Process for offshore software development through its custom development services. GRINFOTEK Quality Management System (QMS) maps this process with the CMM model to provide services with CMM level 5 maturities. The QMS also brings the Global Delivery Model to enable onsite/ offshore based development for IT Services Outsourcing.

The tools used for development activities such as Clear Case for configuration, Requisite Pro for requirement analysis, and Rational Rose for analysis, design, and construction.


The Application Development and Maintenance Practice under the IT Services Group offers business benefits including business process improvement. The key services that are provided under the Application Development Practice are custom development, re-engineering and product development The key services that are provided under the Application Maintenance Outsourcing Practice are 24×7 production support, Level 2 and above product support, helpdesk support, and performance monitoring and alerting.
