Collaborate Global Teams with New-age Software Development Lifecycle
The new age business enterprises in their attempt to stand fast against the aggressive competition tend to
deploy all new software applications made available with technological innovations. Besides these applications,
depending on the needs of the customers, the enterprises also manage to get customized development of
applications as per requirements. The software development process however requires a platform that would
facilitate integration and customization. Such a platform will help in simplifying the process, manage
traceability relationships and provide compelling insights to deploy eco-friendly practices.
However, the complex process of software development goes through various stages of development procedure
termed as software development life cycle (SDLC). The basic stages include :
detailed understanding of client requirements
understanding of technical feasibility
designing of the software and its components
Implementation, testing, documentation, deployment and maintenance
In other words, the software development lifecycle comprises of people, process and technology wound
together and its success eases the complexities and enhances productivity levels of the enterprises However,
deploying of customized software development lifecycle processes many bring in complexities without the use
of intelligent tools leading to adversities in the business. Enterprises thus need to be equipped with powerful
tools to competently address the risks.
With a number of software developers having entered the market, there are various models and that guide the
application lifecycle management process and ranges from traditional, iterative to waterfall and agile
These configurable applications with flexible work-flow, can be customized for organizational requirements.
Further, with the use of requirements management tools the enterprises tend to enhance the quality and
efficiency of the developed applications.Other functions that from a part of the SDLC such as test management,
risk management, release management process, configuration management etc are achieved by integrating
with third party tools. The integration bus provides a two-way synchronization between data and also
accelerates the traceability capabilities.
However, with the growth of technological innovations, cloud based services have also gained momentum. The
Software as a Service(SaaS) offers enterprises an automated and streamlined platform that leverages on
visibility to provide better controls in the SDLC process. This platform also provides the enterprises with an
efficient security infrastructure that reduces risks while deploying cost-effective practices. Besides this
facilitates easy migration and can be easily configured and customized.
Such web based and cloud based software development life cycle process facilitates the exchange of
information and increases collaboration of geographically distant project teams through multiple input
capturing and reporting methods. This facilitates total management and control of the SDLC process leading to
high productivity oriented delivery of quality software.
