Focus Areas

Over the years, Periscope has developed custom solution using various cutting-edge technologies and tools including but not limited to:

  • Microsoft .NET, SharePoint

  • HTML5, JQuery, Ajax
  • RDBMS: SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL
  • Server Technologies: Windows 2003/2008, Hyper-V, Linux

Industry-leading practices and methodologies are used for project management at Periscope.  During or prior to project initiation, a decision is made on what would be the extent of Periscope’s involvement in the project.  Based on that, various methods/techniques are used to devise the most effective project management approach that ensures overall success – often, an agile development approach.

Following are few aspects of typical project management work at Periscope:

  • Work Coordination Plan:Significant attention is given to derive a work coordination plan that yields highest level of productivity.  Few important aspects of the coordination includes:
    • Daily/Weekly code drop in shared ftp site (
    • Real-time interaction between client and Periscope resources (minimum of few hours every day) using IM, WebEx, conference calls, etc.
  • Milestones/Checkpoint Sign-off: Periscope obtains sign-off from the client after each milestone is completed and a formal review is done to improve existing processes.
  • Weekly Management Scorecard:
  • Frequent intermediate deliveries with working functionality. This enables the customer to get working software earlier and enables the project to change its requirements according to changing needs.

Quality Objective:
Primary objective of testing a system is to assure that the system meets the full requirements, including functional and non functional requirements and satisfy scenarios and maintain the quality of the product. At the end of any project development cycle, expectations should be met as detailed in the requirements.

Secondary Objective of testing is to identify and expose issues and associated risks, communicate all known issues to the project team, and ensure that all issues have been considered, reviewed and taken care of before product release.
