Dedicated IoT Development Team Structure
Specialization and the number of employees in the allocated IoT development team are variable and depend on the needs and tasks. In the process of work, the customer can increase or decrease the staff depending on the needs, as this is one of the options. Nevertheless, the following people will be at the core of your IoT development team:
The project manager focuses primarily on the efficiency of the application IoT development process, meeting deadlines, and quality standards. The project manager's responsibilities include assigning tasks to the IoT development team, setting deadlines for sprints and prioritizing tasks, evaluating your project and sticking to your budget, as well as establishing interaction between you as the client and the developers as contractors.
The business analyst is responsible for identifying the real needs of stakeholders in order to determine key objectives and identify motives. This person is a kind of bridge between the business world and the development team. His or her main goal is to gather and identify product or feature requirements, document them, and translate them into a language the IoT development team can understand.
Before starting the work, the designer analyzes the client's requirements for the project. This way, the specialist understands the "pains" of those for whom he creates the application. His task is to identify the difficulties faced by users and effectively solve them with the help of design.
These are the people who will turn your ideas into quality code. The IoT engineers' competencies include creating the user part of the application as well as the server part, which is responsible for data exchange.
The role of an experienced QA engineer in IoT app development cannot be underestimated. Timely identification of IoT app flaws and bugs will help you meet your project release deadlines and stay within your budget. A QA engineer will perform automated and manual testing, record testing progress and document test cases, and keep track of bugs.
