Understanding all the requirements and needs is the first step. Reviewing the requirements and doing a thorough analysis on them. We do not hesitate to give suggestions if there is a room to make the application grow our customer’s business rapidly. Analysis will then cover all aspects of the business and needs especially on how the application is going to be merged with their existing system if any. The analysis is done in the way such that it is neither too time consuming nor lacking information.
Preliminary specifications are drawn up by covering up each and every element of the requirement. Once the captured data is analyzed these are put together in the form of a software requirement specification document (SRS) or a system requirement specification (SyRS) document. This document serves as a blueprint for the design or development teams to start building the solution ON. It serves as a technical compendium of all the stakeholders' needs including user requirements, system requirements, user interface and operational requirements.
After the specification building, work on the application is commenced after receipt of the signed proposal, a deposit, and any written content material and graphics our client wish to include. In this stage, Design Mockups are created according to the client’s requirements and then after client’s approval the final design, the layouts and navigation are designed as a prototype.
In today's business world, an application is basically a calling card. It is often the first impression someone gets of the business and its products or services. The writing on a website obviously contributes a large part of the overall impact a site has, along with, and of course, graphic design and layout.
Now, it’s the programmer’s turn to add his code without disturbing the design. This is the part where all backend work is done and the design is kept same. The developers understand the design and navigation of the site or application and develops it.
If the application is not tested properly then it is useless because it may have a lot of bugs. Our Testing Engineers assure the best quality of the application. Unlike software development, web based applications need intensive testing, as the applications will always function as a multi-user, multi-tier system with bandwidth limitations. Some of the testing which is done are, Integration testing, Stress testing, Scalability testing, load testing, resolution testing and cross-browser compatibility testing. Both automated testing and manual testing are done without fail.
This phase is applicable only for web sites and web based applications. A website can have 100 times more business and traffic with the help of Online Marketing and Promotion. We suggest our customers to have an SEO/SMO package for their website to have more business with the website. Promotion needs preparation of Meta tags, constant analysis and submitting the URL to the search engines and directories. The Search Engine Optimization and Social Media Marketing is normally an ongoing process as the strategies of search engine may change quite often.
A Software application will need quite frequent updates to keep them fresh and relevant. In such a case, we do analysis again, and all the other life-cycle steps are repeated. Bug fixes can be done during the time of maintenance. Once the website or any software solution is operational, ongoing promotion, technical maintenance, content management & updating is done.
