Each Software Solution has its own unique requirements and there are different software development life cycle methodologies that could be followed.
Following a too simplistic method, could result in a Software Solution that does not provide the desired solution and can limit expansion of that specific module in the future.
Following a too rigid development life cycle and evaluating and considering every possible scenario, can end up with up to 70% of the project time being spent on documentation alone and no short term working solution. We would only recommend this type of methodology for projects that require extreme accuracy as in the case with military projects.
With the initial assessment of the customer’s requirements we will evaluate which methodology should typically be followed but we have generally found that for smaller projects or for projects where the final product can be divided into smaller modules, the AGILE Software Development Life Cycle Methodology is the most suited.
Although we always aim for accurate first discussions with regards to the requirements of a specific module, the AGILE Software Development Life Cycle allows for changes that one might not have thought of and can be expanded upon.
It also allows us to deliver a working solution much faster and build the complete solution over time while the user can use the initial modules.
Another important benefit of using this methodology is that it allows constant interaction with the user, to ensure that the Designed System provides the customer with exactly what will suite their requirements.
Here is how we typically implement the AGILE Software Development Life Cycle:
