In January 2013 Gigaset chose ByteSource as partner for the development of a new state-of-the-art web frontend for their brand new home automation solution (gigaset-elements.de).
The partners were facing a very tight time-frame, continuously evolving business requirements and teams as well as infrastructure that were distributed around Europe. ByteSource took on the challenge and played a leading role in setting up Scrum as an agile development process. Our employees were successfully integrated in the Scrum team. Best practices were applied quickly and enabled Gigaset to implement further features independently.
Apart from the consulting services regarding the setup and actual application of Scrum, Bytesource developed the web frontend based on HTML 5. Right from the start ByteSource focused on cross-browser compatibility and appropriate testing. The ByteSource Web Testing Cluster turned out to be a real quality booster. It was used to automate application testing on 15 different browsers running on 3 desktops and 2 mobile operating systems. Gigaset valued the cross-functional expertise in the areas of acceptance driven development, agile development methodologies, distributed system architecture, secure Web architecture, cross device scenario testing, release build and fully automated QA cycles.
Within the last 6 months ByteSource has become a reliable and valuable partner. We highly recommend Bytesource as agile experts with a strong technological background.
