There are tons of mobile & web app development companies. Where do we fit in?
At Creole Studios, we don’t like in putting people into boxes. Each individual here has more to offer than just their “core skill” and that one should not limit someone’s contribution just because it’s “not their department”. There’s a sense of cohesiveness in how we do things. We think of ourselves less like a factory-like agency that churns out web and mobile apps, and more like a culmination of creative minds, passionate souls, and hardworking teams that meticulously turns raw ideas into stunning softwares.
We belong to different disciplines of education and work and we have a set of heroes ranging from Steve Jobs and Muhammad Ali, to Marie Curie and Andy Warhol. Needless to say, we do have some master craftsmen (and women!) here on our team, but the real magic happens because every member at Creole Studios believes in something spectacular. From planning the company on a paper napkin in a Starbucks, to operational offices in Kuwait, Hong Kong & India, it’s been quite a journey so far.
In our pursuit of building cool apps & softwares, we come across various different types of projects.
Some projects are simple in nature and require us to build a system from scratch, while others are a bit complicated in nature. Some of them might need extra efforts on crafting its design, or some might need to be extra careful with the structure of their database and how the data is handled in it.
We also take up projects in which the clients hand us over a fully-built or a partially built web app or mobile app that isn’t working properly. We take up those nearly dead, comatose systems with its botched up code and attempt to revive it. That’s not it. At times, we’ve also come across projects where in there are multiple teams working on building the same system alongside us. The client is managing all the teams and we’re responsible for building a part of the system, while coordinating with the other teams
These fragmented nature of assignments, while extremely interesting, require a discipline that allows us to achieve the common goal that we and our clients have, which is finishing the project in time without compromising the stability and reliability of the system’s performance.Thus, we need a process model that’s flexible enough to accommodate all these different types of projects that we undertake, and also strong enough to help the teams get through the tough times with the least amount of damage
Our wisdom says that the process of creating a software has a very high degree of entropy.
There are plenty of possibilities suggesting that things could go wrong while building a software. Factors like changing human interests, lack of synchronized communication, absence of proper technical infrastructure, ineligible decision making, etc. could bring the downfall of the project under construction.
Thus, despite having fancy process models, several software companies spend a considerable amount of time and efforts battling the numerous problems that plague their projects
We were dead sure about one thing:
We didn’t want to be the team that spends more time fire-fighting, and less time actually building something.
For that to be a reality, we’ve relied on our process model. It is a time-tested model that has been studied logically and has been refined from time-to-time to suit all the different types of assignments we undertake. It comprises of 8 different stages, each of which accomplishes key objectives and they are sequenced in a way that allows us to have a fluid production for any mobile app or web-based system. It is a true marvel and we’re super proud of it.

WHAT OUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF THINKS
Dip DhinganiCEO, Creole Studios
Prior to Creole Studios, all our founding members worked in different software companies. During those stints, we worked on several projects. It was during that time we saw the gaping holes & the pain-points in the system. The project managers wouldn't provide honest & apt consulting advice to the clients, the programmers would write sub-standard code in outdated technologies, the bosses only cared about renewing contracts and don’t even get me started on communication skills.
Software creation was generally thought of as a dull job which one did only because the pay was good. And I hated that. I firmly believe that building good software requires a creative mindset, and no creative process can ever be boring. You listen to the Beatles composing 'Strawberry Fields Forever', or hear the stories of how Van Gogh painted 'The Starry Night' and you get goosebumps. Why can’t one strive to feel the same while building a mobile app or a cloud-based system?
