History of the DTS logo
Have you ever wondered about the symbology of the Data Transfer Solutions logo? Our company logo references the Agile Method- an approach to project management utilized in software development. This philosophy uses incremental work sequences commonly known as sprints (a period of time allocated for a particular phase of a project). Ideas about the Agile Method surfaced in the 1970’s when Dr. William Royce published a paper discussing the managing and developing of large software systems. The Agile Software Development model was developed in 2001 by a team of 17 software developers in Snowbird, Utah. Together they created the Manifesto for Agile Software Development used to define the approach known as Agile Software Development.
The Agile Manifesto is based on twelve principles which include:
• Customer satisfaction by rapid delivery of useful software;
• Welcome changing requirements, even late in the development process;
• Simplicity-the art of maximizing the amount of work not done- is essential;
• Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design;
• Regular adaptation to changing circumstances; and
• Face-to-face conversation between business people and developers.
The Agile development process promotes development, teamwork, collaboration, and process adaptability throughout the life-cycle of a product. The Agile Method benefits teams who implement it by helping them to function and maintain focus on rapid delivery as well as ensure that value is optimized throughout the development process.
When looking at our company logo think of the image on the left above, depicting the Agile Method. The two images represent the same flow of energy throughout the development process and will therefore deliver the same valuable result.
