Forming Java Department in Diatom
What is a team? A team is a group of people with mutually complementary skills who are committed to a common purpose, performance goals, and approach for which they hold themselves mutually accountable. It is important to care about effectiveness for all of the team during the planning process. Java Technology Department gives power for delivering solutions in Java and related technologies.
Transparency of processes
Transparency of workflows needs to be provided in order to ensure high quality of planning. It is necessary to assess the risks for reaching the targets and make efforts to eliminate the risks. Our management model and reporting tools help to keep the transparency on a high level, so we can see the status of all workflows instantly and analyze the risks of all activities that are currently active and planned.
Our management model helps to keep our processes transparent
Our management model is based on the most popular Agile methodologies; scrum is used. Scrum is the iterative and incremental agile software development methodology for managing product development. It provides a possibility to iteratively move forward with development while keeping the transparency of the process.
Agile development burndown
At the end of each iteration (see Agile development burn-down above) we make a retrospective meeting where we discuss with the team what has been done and how to do that better. This provides us with a possibility to improve the quality of processes within our company and when working with our clients.
Technologies we use as ‘Issue and Tracking Tool’
Atlassian JIRA and CA Agile Central are used by our management as Issue and Time Tracking Tool. It has proved to be a stable solution for reaching goals.
Reporting and documentation tools
Diatom Enterprises and our Java Technology Department use flagship tools that are popular in the market today to reflect the workflow on the assigned tasks and documentation. All activities regarding tasks execution are reported using this Issue and Time Tracking Tool. It helps to plan the workflow, keep track of problem-solving history and know the current status.
Organizing the infrastructure is one of the important moments that will make work-space determined, standard and easy to use by teams. This ensures our team to save time on the configuration of development environments and typical workflow processes. Documentation related to the project is centralized and available in one place. New employees must be provided with all key information that is necessary for a successful start and active work. Mentoring is provided by the Team Leads.
Our source code and version control system
As source code and version control system we use Git. It has proved to suit well for big enterprise teams. It is capable to work with remote source code repository in ‘pull and push’ way.
Code review tools
FishEye and Crucible are preferred tools by our teams for code reviews and keeping standards of teamwork.
CI – continuous integration
The purpose of continuous integration is the provision of constant implementation and delivery for new releases of a project. It ensures the quality by executing automated tests and operations that simplify the development life-cycle of a project. Continuous integration covers the project development workflow from source code to deployable version ready for quality assurance.
As the build system, we use Jenkins as it has proved to be a reliable tool for continuous integrations. It is our standard tool for the whole organization.
All tools mentioned above are proven organizational tools that our Java Technology Department successfully uses on a daily basis to deliver solutions.
Java Technologies we use
We are proud to say that we are proficient with modern technologies and easily acquire new skills. Our selection of technology is based on the target solution. Therefore, we can help you with choosing a particular technology for your project or you can choose a technology on your own and our experts will assist you with it.
Employee performance review (EPR)
An employee performance review or EPR is another term for “Evaluation Process”.
The purpose of employee evaluation is to measure job performance. Many evaluations provide quantitative measurements necessary for a production-oriented work environment. Other employee evaluations provide employers with metrics regarding the quality of employees’ work. The importance of employee evaluation is that it is instrumental in determining whether an employee’s skill set is appropriately matched to the employee’s job.
The evaluation process usually happens every half a year. It provides feedback and possibilities of constant growth for employees. It is essential to provide communication between employees within the company.
The evaluation process is the time when an employee can give feedback about the company, personal likes and dislikes and receive personal feedback.
Training and Development
Employee training and development needs are other reasons why employees’ evaluations are important. Assessing employees’ strengths and weaknesses is the first step in determining the type of training your employees to need. Training usually supports employees in acquiring new skills; development helps to build upon employees’ attitude and current performance. Upon learning employees’ strengths and weaknesses, employees’ evaluation decides what type of training employees need to perform their job tasks.
It is important to admit that each member of our team has own interests, but the main goal is one for everyone: reaching the result. Roles, plans and environment are organized respectively. Regular employees’ evaluations are important to give feedback and provide a possibility for constant growth for employees according to their efforts. This will also help to build a strong team for the whole company.
