All About the Processes Involved in Software Development...

By: Anne Catherine

Software Development is a conversion in which the user's requirement or the market demand is processed into a software product. This comprises the procedures of software engineering associated with investigation and attaining objectives. It is arduous to segregate whether marketing or engineering is accountable for the accomplishment or catastrophe of a software product. Software developments are based on the demands of the customer and are done to the utmost satisfaction of the customer or market. They are codes written in various computer languages.

Customer Software Development is an engineering process and marketing it is another process. But only when these two processes join forces the outcome will be balanced. Software development assignments are not always allied with engineering such as risk or crisis management, human resources, budgeting, market research, etc. Software development is a complicated process and requires the blend of knowledge in various disciplines. Beginning from designing to generation of codes, project management, analysis, deployment, management changes and projecting the required software has become an indispensable part of any organization.

Any developing Software Development Company executes their methodologies. The ISO 12207 software is essential for selecting, implementing as well as monitoring the life cycle. Software ISO 9000 represents the standards for organizing procedures with documentation. ISO 15504 known as SPICE assists in managing, providing guidelines, controlling and in software development. This is implemented to acquire knowledge about the project on which a team is doing software development. Six Sigma is a method to analyze the statistics of a company and enhance its performance.

Generally, while attempting any new or free software, new application or absolute new system, it is referred as "Domain Analysis". This is an essential phase to haul out and gather the requisites of the Customer. The next step is creating the Customer Software Development project by understanding the client's requirement and demonstrating to them the live codes. This demonstration will lessen the risk of being incorrect. Specifications are essential for all the external interfaces that are expected to remain constant. The Software Development Company takes the responsibility of linking the hardware perfectly under the supervision of IT Consulting Companies. Implementation should be done by coding which is a vital activity for the Software Development engineers and the Software Development Company. This is followed by testing the software. Documentation is essential for maintenance and future development and is taken care by the IT Consulting Companies or by the Software Development Company.

Many supports other Software Development Companies to take optimum utilization of the hardware as well as the software tools to produce best results. Software Development fails as the developers lack in planning an appropriate team and the time required in completing a project. It is expected of the Software Development Companies to have curiosity and adequate queries as well as problems. This will lead to inquisitiveness and more of adept learning. Maintaining and developing software to any new problem or additional requirement consumes more time than initial software development. Any demands lots of patience, calculation, speculation, variation and presentation. It should be developed keeping into mind various problems that may arise in future and should be open enough to make alterations.
