T-ModelTM

Process for Accelerated Bug-Free Software Development

T-Model is a proven, risk free, cost effective approach for creating and improving software, development teams, and processes.
When applying T-Model to a project, you are building a strong foundation that will help you avoid or solve challenges faced on most of the software projects today:

  • Endless defects,
  • Slow development pace,
  • Complex code,
  • Hardly scalable software,
  • Poor technical talent retention.

T-Model is a combination of 3 proven techniques at high level: Domain Driven Design, Cutting Edge Software Architecture, and Extreme Programming (each explained in detail below).

By implementing what has already been proven by the successful leaders of the software development industry, you effectively stay risk free.
By contracting with a single experienced consultant, your costs are guaranteed to be low.

T-Model results in:

  • Maximized ROI per developer, team, and software,
  • Highly productive software development process,
  • Fast paced feature delivery,
  • Independent and autonomous teams,
  • Bug free code,
  • Highly scalable systems,
  • Transparent organization structure,
  • Strong customer satisfaction,
  • And long term technical talent engagement.

These are only a few of the promises made and proven by the techniques that comprise T-Model.

An expert in all areas of T-Model will coach and help implement T-Model in software development teams and organizations.

Going Through Agile Transformation?

T-Model can serve as a technical counterpart and complement to Agile Transformation. Without T-Model, Agile Transformation is just an attempt to transform processes, which leaves technical challenges behind it unaddressed at best, ignored, or even failed.

The Expert

T-Model, as a term composing 3 proven techniques, was coined by Tengiz Tutisani, after he discovered the unique effectiveness of this combination. Tengiz helps teams and organizations implement and execute T-Model to achieve an unprecedented success in software development transformation.

Tengiz is a Software Architect, who loves staying hands-on and enjoys coding on daily basis. He works directly with software developers, architects, teams, and their leadership, to transform software development industry, one place at a time.

Tengiz's fluency in all areas, ranging from coding to multiple team leadership, makes him easy to approach or to work with. He quietly jokes that he is the secret 4-th ingredient.

Domain Driven Design

Domain Driven Design (DDD) is a set of recommendations that focuses on managing complexity in code, software systems, teams, organizations, processes, and relationships between them

Within the context of T-Model, DDD helps achieve:

  • Accelerated software development pace long run, instead of typical slow down observed on most of the software projects today.
  • Loosely coupled and highly scalable software systems.
  • Improved business/domain knowledge spread and communication between domain experts, software engineers, and other technical staff.
  • Faster ramp-up for newly joined engineers.
  • Clearly defined and transparent setup of teams, software systems, requirements, and org divisions.
  • Improved software quality, both from technical and functional standpoint.
  • Adherence to better software development and architectural standards.

Cutting Edge Software Architecture

With large scale process transformation, such as Agile Transformation or even applying Domain Driven Design, there are technical challenges uncovered which need to be addressed. Otherwise value, effectiveness, and viability of the transformation can be at risk or questioned. Expert's help is essential to overcome these technical challenges at all levels - code, modeling, architecture, and technologies. Cutting Edge Software Architecture, as a set of many software development and architecture skills, needs to be applied by the expert in these cases.

Within the context of T-Model, Cutting Edge Software Architecture helps achieve:

  • Scalable and loosely coupled software systems that are easy to develop, run, deploy, and maintain in production environments.
  • Clear and maintainable software codebase.
  • Avoiding Legacy systems and large scale refactoring or rewrite long run.
  • Improved engineering talent engagement, growth, and long term commitment.
  • Improved software quality, both from technical and functional standpoint.
  • Adherence to better software development and architectural standards.

Extreme Programming

Extreme Programming (XP) is a developer-centric Agile process that focuses on development team productivity, transparency, software quality, and deliverables.

Within the context of T-Model, XP focuses on technical side of it - TDD, Pair Programming, frequent refactoring, CI/CD, and so on. Non-technical side can be covered with the rest of XP, Scrum, or any other Agile process.

XP practices help achieve:

  • Independent and autonomous teams that deliver software in predictable, fast paced manner.
  • Clean and maintainable software codebase.
  • Improved engineering talent engagement and growth.
  • Fast and effective knowledge transfer within team members.
  • Improved software quality, both from technical and functional standpoint.
