How we work: the Metanous method
A tailor-made solution in 8 steps.
The Metanous method
Here you get an overview of the different steps of a development process. We analyse, synthesize, create an architecture, develop, monitor the global project, ensure continuous integration, test, provide training and deliver.
1. InitiAL workshop / brainstorm
To get a good idea of the needs of our customer and the requirements that the software platform must meet, we start each project with a brainstorming session or workshop. In this way we visualize the current situation and look for the best solution.
2. mapping out the workflow
We look at the workflow to be automated by our software solution. By going through each step, the idea for the application takes shape.
3. AnalysIS & wireframeS
We perform an analysis based on the collected information. This usually consists of three parts:
- Wireframes: functional description
- Architectuur: technical sound architectural document
- Visuals: graphical design for the web application, mobile app or web-platform
4. Setting up the development environment
As soon as the analysis is completed, we start setting up the development environment. The build process, the follow-up of the development and the roll-out are done automatically as much as possible.
Metanous is a reliable business partner where we can always count on quality and expertise. This applies to the project-based collaboration we have with Metanous as well as to general support

Depending on the technology used and the desired solution, our developers will work with front-end, back-end, mobile apps, integrations, and so on. We develop algorithms, measure performance and set up tests. We deliver the software in phases. This allows us to make quick adjustments where necessary and we quickly arrive at a working prototype.
6. Testing & quality control
With each iteration, the delivered code is tested. This is partly automatic, through unit testing, GUI testing and integration testing, and partly explorative. Only when a part passes all the tests is it made available.
As soon as all necessary features have been developed, all tests have been performed and the required integrations are functional, the new software is made available. Depending on the project, this can take many forms: adding in an app store, roll-out within the organization, a new web platform and so on.
8. Monitoring, evaluation and retropspective
After delivery, we always provide an evaluation moment with the customer. If desired, we can also monitor and maintain your new software solution.
