Software Engineering

SNAP is recognized for our unrelenting focus on quality while accelerating time-to-value in the delivery of our software engineering solutions that are CMMI Maturity Level 3 Certified. Organizations face multiple inter-related challenges including shrinking budgets, increasingly busy stakeholders, rapidly evolving requirements, mounting operations and maintenance costs, and in many cases bloated portfolios. Our approach to these complex challenges leverages unique constructs such as our SNAP Program Delivery Ecosystem (SPDE), Architecture Governance Council (AGC), Agile tailored Software Engineering Lifecycle, and Multi-layered Governance.

Our differentiated approach to Software Engineering has the following main tenets:

  • Velocity: Our Agile adaptive software engineering lifecycle includes SCRUM, Test Driven Development, Continuous Integration and other practices proven to accelerate delivery.

  • Unrelenting focus on quality: Our multi-layered governance approach, Organizational Process Improvement team, and Architecture Council, and tools ensure we deliver products aligned with your business needs with industry leading quality.

  • Total Transparency: We put at our customers’ disposal a highly collaborative detailed SNAP Program Delivery Ecosystem (SPDE) that includes a Program Management Portal, multiple tailorable ALMS products, and collaborative tools, underpinned with our best practices published in our SNAP cloud (or on-customer premise). Our SPDE includes access to granular program data and artifacts customizable based on customer gateways and deliverables.

  • Architecture Governance Council: The AGC is SNAP’s select group of industry leading technologists cooperating under a charter to apply and promote architectural best practices, nurture innovation, govern delivery and best practices, and develop quality solutions. Members include Enterprise, Data, and Solution Architects as well as multi-disciplinary senior engineers.

  • Opportunistic Modernization: Our software development and support approach goes beyond the various cycles of releases to leverage our AGC to introduce successive cycles of innovation, architectural improvements, modernization, portfolio rationalization, consolidation, and integration thereby reducing the TCO and aligning the program with industry best practices and organizational enterprise architecture.
