Custom Software Development
Our expertise in a wide range of technologies enables us to develop compelling applications for our customers when they are unable to satisfy their ever increasing requirements through off-the-shelf software. Our business analysts work closely with the clients to understand their objectives and define their requirements, after which a team of software developers builds, tests, and deploys the software.
Throughout the process of software development, our focus is on maintaining highest quality standards so that the end product does not only meet the client’s requirements, but, also enhances the efficiency of the overall system into which the software is integrated.
Developing and delivering a software within time, cost and quality constraints requires the use of sound engineering principles. Over time, our software engineers have adopted the following road map that helps us produce a timely, high-quality result. This framework provides stability, control, and organization to the activities involved in engineering a software.
1. Preliminary Analysis
During this phase, our team of software developers conducts a preliminary analysis of the client’s requirements, proposes a solution, describes costs and benefits of the proposed solution. The requirements are documented and reviewed with the client. The requirements specification helps our software engineers understand the information domain for the software, as well as required function, behavior, performance, and interface.
2. Software Design
The desired features and operations of the deliverable are described in detail, including user interfaces, busines rules, process diagrams, pseudocode, and other documentation. This phase is actually a multistep process that focuses on four distinct attributes of the software: data structure, software architecture, interface representations, and algorithmic detail. The design process translates requirements into a representation of the software that can be assessed for quality before coding begins.
In this phase, the software design is translated into a machine-readable form using a programming language.
This phase brings all the developed pieces together into a special testing environment, then checks for errors, bugs and interoperability. The testing process focuses on the logical internals of the software, ensuring that all statements have been tested, and on the functional externals; that is, conducting tests to uncover errors and ensure that defined input will produce actual results that agree with the required results.
The software is delivered to the client and integrated with the existing business environment at the production site.
6. Maintenance & Support
A software will undoubtedly undergo changes after it is delivered to the client. Changes will occur because errors have been encountered, because the software must be adapted to accommodate changes in its external environment or because the customer requires functional or performance enhancements. This phase reapplies each of the preceding phases to an existing software.
