How Do We Approach Your Business Requirement?
Planning and Analysis
We, at DevelopWay, initiate the estimation process, to understand the effort needed for the delivery of the needed software, irrespective of the documented need, if the customer has a clear understanding of the final product and is able to provide some of the business and technical requirements, say some functionalities, client profile, business model or app mockups, etc.
The collaboration strategy design includes decision-making to choose the right engagement model, pricing plans, project management style and framework, communication frequency, and method, etc. The decisions are based on different factors like the workflow of the company, size of the project, client participation preferences, team maturity, delivery time, and envisioned budget.
Custom Software Design and Architecture
After the planning and analysis stages, it’s time for design and architecture. In this phase, system and software design documents are created based on the requirements specification documents. Software architecture provides an overview of the system structure and how the various elements and components within the system interact with each other. Software design delves into the implementation details of the system, focusing on code-level design to help transform requirements into implementation.
At this stage, developers start to build the system. The coding is done as per the specifications set out in the previous stage. Requirements are transformed into tasks and assigned to individual developers. This is the longest stage in the software development life cycle process.
After the code is written, it will be deployed in a test environment. The quality assurance and testing teams identify errors and defects at this stage. They communicate these to the developers, who then fix the issue and send it back to quality assurance for retesting. This process continues until the software is stable and meets all business.
After the software testing phase is complete and all errors have been addressed, the final deployment process commences. The system is put into production to verify its functionality, completeness, and accuracy. Once it passes this stage, the software is ready to be released to end-users.
What Software Development Methodologies and Frameworks We Use?
Agile methodology is a popular development practice that emphasizes continuous interaction between development and testing throughout the software development process. In agile methods, projects are divided into small incremental builds. These builds are delivered in iterations, each of which lasts one to three weeks. The most popular agile methodologies are Scrum and Kanban.
Scrum is the most commonly used agile development framework. It is a lightweight process framework that focuses on three key areas: roles, artifacts, and time boxes.
While Scrum is based on short, focused sprints, Kanban is more continuous and fluid. Kanban is all about visualization workflows, efficiency, and limiting WIP.
Agile development practices ushered in new disciplines of software development, one of which is DevOps. DevOps is a set of practices that combines software development and IT operations with the aim of shortened systems development life cycle and continuous delivery with high software quality. DevOps complements Agile software development; in fact, several DevOps aspects originated from the Agile methodology.
Other Agile Models
There are several other variations of Agile development, including feature-driven development, Extreme Programming (XP), Crystal, and test-driven development. All of these methods fall under the Agile umbrella.
The waterfall model is a widely accepted SDLC model. In this method, the software development process is divided into various stages. In this model, the result of one stage is used as input for the next stage. This model is document-intensive, and early stages document the operations that need to be performed in subsequent stages.
As an adaptation of lean manufacturing principles, Lean Software Development (LSD) offers a comprehensive framework that supports agile organizations. This framework is composed of values, principles, and best practices that have been gleaned from successful implementations of LSD.
Rapid Application Development
The RAD model is a software development methodology that prioritizes more on the development task, and there is less concentration on planning. This method aims to accelerate the entire development cycle developing software in a short period
What are the Risks Of Outsourcing Custom Software Development and How to Manage them?
Both parties should have an understanding of how to define, measure, and understand the progress being made on the project.
If the team’s priorities are unclear, it will lead to communication problems and affect the final outcome.
Lack of Executives’ Engagement
It’s important that senior managers spend enough time on the project and that they share responsibility for the project’s success with the outsourced partner. Internal team members should be involved in the project.
Not effective Team Interactions
It’s important to have efficient communication between the customer and the outsourced development team. Otherwise, it’ll be difficult to establish a proper workflow.
It’s important to establish clear QA procedures and quality standards that are understood by both parties. This will help ensure a successful outcome.
