Software development is very similar to building a tower or making a car. There are several vital steps to implement in a software, if we want to bring all your desires and ideas to the reality.
At HannaPerle, our software engineers consider all stages in Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).
To produce a software product efficiently, SLDC suggests developers and business owners to follow a series of steps. Let us introduce some of the key steps of the SDLC briefly.
The planning phase is the most fundamental and critical phase. The project goals are determined at high-level system requirements. Let us answer some key questions which are very important for both stakeholders and our developer team.
Based on our experiments and the project conditions, we will show the stakeholder that it is possible to develop project based on cutting-edge technologies.
Preliminary Cost Estimation
The cost is estimated considering key factors such as complexity, product size, level of technology, user demographics and production time.
The feasibility of the project will be scheduled based on time, which will be estimated based on the number of services to offer, i.e. e-commerce, social networks, authentication etc.
Now, we need to talk together to dive into the project to collect all features of your idea and clarify the scope, requirements, users, and business objectives.
Based on our experience as software developers, the analysis of requirements is a very important section of any software development project because it is the foundation of the project and helps to reduce any possible ambiguity.
Spending a few hours or days will reveal all hidden parts of the project and our team will discover all business functionalities and what you expect from the final-version of the developed project.
The mind map of the project will be created in this step of the analysis. Mind mapping helps to organize the conversation and effectively track the progress of the work.
Use Case Modelling
Use case diagrams are used to pictorially illustrate the interaction between the system and its actors. This also helps to show how the application functions.
Once the requirements are understood, our software architects and engineers will build a technical blueprint of how the proposed system will work.
Design the Technical Architecture
To get the best performance of the implemented software, we define the hardware, software, and internet equipment.
The front-end design clarifies all functionalities and the Graphical User Interface of the software. We deliver Wireframe, Mockup, and Prototype to stockholder before moving on to the coding phase.
Considering the prototype and detailed documents, it is time to implement the website. We have two options:
Content Management System
Implementing the website using open-source content management systems. WordPress and Typo3 are two of the best suggestions.
Implementing the content-rich websites from scratch. We know many technologies in both back-end and front-end such as PHP, Laravel, Node.js, HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap, AngularJS, React, and etc. very well.
Testing is a crucial part of software development life cycle. In this phase we verify that the system works and meets all of the bushiness requirements. In addition, our testers check the system in a systematic way for errors, bugs, and defects to verify the system’s functionality work as expected.
One of the most important sections of each software is security. Depending on the function of the software, we implement different levels of security in our codes to keep the software safe and secure.
The goal of the integration testing module is to verify that the units of code work correctly when they are integrated together.
We use many tools to depict the performance of what we have developed.
We write the individual test cases for the codes that are tested in this section.
User Acceptance Testing
This module of testing determines if the system satisfies the business requirements.
In this invisible phase, the system is deployed and delivered to a real-life and production environment.
Application Release Automation
There are some tools that can be used to automate the deployment of application to production environment.
Effective Software Updates
Effective software update is essential in every project to get the new versions of plugins and software. The software deployment make these steps easy and accurate.
Automating the deployment can be done quickly and there is no need for training.
In the maintenance phase the new system is monitored to ensure it continues to meet the business goals.
We provide some tools to help and support our valuable customers to be able to contact us and ask their questions.
Any necessary enhancements, corrections, and changes will be made to improve the output of the project.
Software systems need to be maintained and upgraded from time to time. We give our customers the best management.
