?Systems and Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a process used by a systems analyst
to develop an information system, including requirements, validation, training, and
user ownership. Any SDLC should result in a high quality system that meets or
exceeds customer expectations, reaches completion within time and cost estimates,
works effectively and efficiently in the current and planned Information Technology
infrastructure, and is inexpensive to maintain and cost-effective to enhance.
Let us have a look at the Process and phases with figure:
1) Requirement Analysis : First phase of Web DevelopmentProcess is requirement
analysis. Clients requirement is properly analyzed. We check for the feasibility of idea
before we start working on the project. Moreover, which tools should be used is
decided during this stage. Can it be developed in allocated budget and in given
timeframe is also analyzed.
2) Project Planning : After analyzing clients requirement, we strategize idea and
assign responsibilities to development team by creating milestones that are to be
achieved in given time.
3) Prototype Creation and Confirmation : The conventional purpose of a prototype is
to allow users of the software to evaluate developers' proposals for the design of the
eventual product by actually trying them out, rather than having to interpret and
evaluate the design based on descriptions. Prototyping can also be used by end users
to describe and prove requirements that developers have not considered, so
"controlling the prototype" can be a key factor in the commercial relationship between
developers and their clients. Interaction design in particular makes heavy use of
prototyping with that goal.
4) Design And Development : Drawing from the information gathered up to this point,
its time to determine the look and feel of your site.
Target audience is one of the key factors taken into consideration. A site aimed at
teenagers, for example, will look much different than one meant for a financial
institution. As part of the design phase, it is also important to incorporate elements
such as the company logo or colors to help strengthen the identity of your company
on the web site.
The development stage is the point where the web site itself is created. At this time,
your web designer will take all of the individual graphic elements from the prototype
and use them to create the actual, functional site.
This is typically done by first developing the home page, followed by a shell for the
interior pages. The shell serves as a template for the content pages of your site, as it
contains the main navigational structure for the web site. Once the shell has been
created, your designer will take your content and distribute it throughout the site, in
the appropriate areas.
5) Customer Review : That means that customers monitor the progress of
development online so they won't be faced with any sudden issues at the end.
Upon implementation of features according to the plan we integrate implemented
features, perform development test, create user guide.
6) Changes Implementation : In this phase changes which are suggested by the client
are implemented into the software.
