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 methodlogy. 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.
