Software Development Center

Software Development Center

The heart of Chess iX is our software development center. Here we design, create and test products with the highest level of craftsmanship and a dedication for delivering quality products.

Passion for quality

Our employees all share a passion for creating the best products – functional, technical, and operational. A Chess iX engineer combines deep technical knowledge with the ability to think ahead and anticipate the needs of users, maintainers and owners, even when they are not spelled out beforehand.

Technology and design

Our technology of choice is the Java platform and language, and the many open source libraries and frameworks available for it. Our vast experience with many of the most popular frameworks (such as Spring, Wicket, GWT, Tapestry,iBatis and Hibernate) allow us to efficiently assemble the optimal set of technologies and frameworks that provide the best foundation for your product, now and in the years to come.

Project types

Depending on the preference and maturity of your organization, we can offer you a project organization that is best suited to your needs. In agile projects, the focus is on rapid development, flexible functionality and delivering value as soon as possible. Other clients are best helped with a more traditional approach, where functional and technical requirements are fleshed out upfront, followed by a (possibly  fixed price) implemenation and validation effort.

Fit for change

Regardless of the project form, the result is the same: quality software. Designed, built, tested and documented to ensure that your software fits your needs, and is able to support your business now and in the years to come.
