7 stages of Software Development Process
At Kutia, we know that each project will be different so we approach with an open mind and manage each piece of bespoke software in a way that suits the individual project. These are the 7 stages we work on Software Development Process:
- First contact
During the first contact, we want to learn your business goals and product vision and collect the information on the most important functionalities. We also answer the first questions and inform you about the predicted project cost. We review the materials you provide and form a team that will conduct the project analysis.
- Creating a backlog
Once we have a general outline of what we need to do, there comes the time for more detailed meetings that will allow us to formulate the requirements in the form of a product backlog and provide more accurate estimates. We also establish the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) of the project, which will allow for implementing the project in stages and for the gradual development of the application.
During the design phase, the actual conceptualizing of the solution is created. In this phase, we prepare the system and software design documents as per the requirement specification document. This helps define the overall system architecture and serves as input for the next phase of the model.
- Sprint 0
Now comes the time to prepare for launching the development of your project. We take some time to set the environment and configure the tools needed. We agree on the project workflow and the management method. It is time to specify the order and implementation of tasks in the backlog.
The course of the development phase differs, depending on the management model chosen. We usually strive for iterative work, characteristic of Scrum. This allows for frequent verification of the progress and continuous improvement of the software development process. We flexibly adapt to any changes and keep in touch with you.
When we implement the specified scope of the project, we are ready to release the first version. The phase of iterations ends with releasing a version that may be repeated many times.
- Project support
Usually, when the work on a website is completed, it requires maintaining and taking care of its security. We offer support for your project, which includes introducing new updates, as well as adding new functionalities and correcting the errors, if necessary.
