Service Delivery

DataLinx has developed methodologies and tools to ensure quality, timely, and on budget, delivery of software solutions.

Countdown™ is a methodology designed by DataLinx specifically to support the unique software development demands driven by the Internet Technology economy. The two key principles underlying this methodology are:
1) Ensuring rapid delivery time frames and committed delivery dates and
2) Quick iterative delivery that delivers critical functionality to users rapidly versus long delivery cycles, which attempt to satisfy all requirements.


DataLinx Countdown™ Methodology is:
Launch date driven
Tight coupling with key business objective, quick decisions, and "big rules"
Emphasis on essential and critical capabilities tailored to each specified release
Knowledge-based leadership
Future capabilities delivered in iterations
Emphasis on building a future enabled architecture
Project management is key enabler
