Olive developed the project on Rio and Tru websites based on .NET Nuke framework. Aer initialevaluation of the requirements of DCC, Olive proposed Agile Scrum Development Methodology.This methodology gives quick results in small iterations which is called ‘Sprint’. Each sprint
follows these stages:
• Requirement Analysis•
System TestingThere are daily meetings among all the project stake holders to know the status of the task. Thedaily meeting is called SCRUM. Scrum is an iterative, incremental methodology commonly used
in agile soware development. The methodology utilizes a set of practices and predened roles.•
• Scrum Master (Olive’s Project Manager)•
Based on Olive’s evaluation of various client requirements, a customized Agile Scrum Methodologywas implemented In Olive’s implementation, each sprint cycle lasts 2 weeks. The breakdown of the
time is as follows:
7 days of development
• 2 days of QA and•
1 day for sprint planningOlive has an onsite project manager working full time with the client. He plays the role of scrum
