Methodology

OVium embraces process methodology to facilitate full cycle deployment and maintenance of products for clientele. The Ovium process methodology is proven in software development life-cycles (SDLC) and in the implementation of large corporate processes. To this purpose "Agile" and Rational Unify Process (RUP) methodologies influence OVium's approach to shape product life cycles, both internally or externally managed. To successfully manage a product life-cycle, OVium plans an effort based on appropriate resources and endpoint deliverables. Invariably the most important project resources are intellectual contribution and moral commitment to the deliverable product by OVium, stakeholders and the customer community.

OVium embraces Agile methodology to incorporate the motivational agonist/antagonist role elements of the "eXtreme" implementation with the spiral convergence toward goals of the "SCRUM" implementation. RUP amplifies the virtues of the Agile methodology to large projects with a semantic language, syntactical vocabulary and scalable structure. Principals of "Limitology" separate large projects into components manageable with Agile methodologies for implementation and test. Standard RUP or even larger scale Agile methods are used to integrate project components into a fully tested system. In a rudimentary form, RUP facilitates the description of project artifacts with an iconic language, the Unified Modeling Language (UML); extensible with a meta-language, Meta-Object Facility (MOF), to expand the overall the descriptive capabilities of UML. For large projects, RUP contributes the ability to scope a project at multiple levels of complexity with commensurate time scales to establish a robust adaptability and work break-down structure (WBS).

OVium employs leading SDLC tools, such as Tau, DOORS, Synergy and RTS to track, design and architect solutions.
