The key to successful software development is that all stake holders develop a clear understanding of requirements. Software requirements can be broadly classified into two groups: Functional or problem domain requirements Non-functional or solution domain requirements In a problem domain, the focus is on the functional or business requirements. It is recommended that you create a domain model of your functional requirements before you start thinking of the solution domain. In a solution domain, we focus on how to deliver the solution for business requirements.
The design concepts provide the software designer with a foundation from which more sophisticated methods can be applied. A set of fundamental design concepts has evolved. They are as follows:
Abstraction , Refinement , software architecture , etc...
One of the lengthiest phases takes off, upon receiving the architecture of the entire system/project. The work here on is segregated in various modules/sites/units and the actual coding kick starts. This phase; though a kind of a back drop of all activities, is the most important as the real/actual coding is done here, yielding success in future.
Testing is done on codes written, against the requirement specifications provided by the clients for quality assurance. Testing ensures the product actually meets the requirements gathered during the requirement phase. It comprises of Unit testing, integration testing, system testing and user acceptance testing, all of them really important for any project to succeed.
Deployment phase is where the project - in form of a kid is handed over; deployed at client's site, ready to enhance their brand image.
Evaluation is one of the last, but an ongoing phase. Once the client starts using our software/application; that is when real life issues/scenarios start erupting. Our engineers 24*7 ensure that these issues get resolved as and when they arise.
