Business applications no longer sit only at the heart of an organization but have moved to the edge. The advent of smartphones, tablets and Android devices are developments heralding the onset of the real information age. The fast moving world of business demands that users at all levels of the organization have information available at their fingertips and that too on a multitude of devices so that they can take quick decisions that can be made available to others across the enterprise.
AMROMED LLC works in partnership with clients, advising them how to use information technology in order to meet their business objectives or overcome problems. We work to improve the structure and efficiency of an organisation's IT systems. R3 provides strategic guidance to organisations with regard to technology, IT infrastructures and the enablement of major business processes through enhancements to IT. They can also be used to provide guidance during selection and procurement as well as providing highly expert technical assistance, and may be responsible for user training and feedback. IT consultants may be involved in sales and business development, as well as technical duties.
In order to ensure that software can evolve in a way that maintains its inherent multidimensionality, one must ensure that the different dimensions evolve together in a consistent manner. Software has too many dimensions to combine within a single framework. A good mechanism should not be geared to a specific problem such as ensuring the consistency of a UML class diagram with the source code. Instead it should be flexible enough to handle the broad range of dimensions that are actually involved in software development.
Methodology we are taking
Our developers use the spiral iterative methodology to build software applications in the shortest possible time and with zero risk. In this process, an application will go through different stages, such as:
- Definition and analysis of requirements
- Integration and testing
- Deployment and acceptance
Definition and analysis of requirements
The customer provides us with detailed project-related information, gathered from supporting documents, process specs, systems, on-site analysis, market research, competitor analysis and end-user interviews. We define and analyze the requirements from the requirements document, project plan, use cases and requirements traceability. We will then create use cases and generate a use case model. Next, the scope of the project will be validated and cost estimates will be made. Revisions, if any, will be made at this stage. The following diagram displays how requirements are defined.
Stage 2: Designing the application
In this stage, our software developers will design the application based on the requirements, use cases and the scope of the project agreed upon in the previous stage. The following is accomplished in this phase:
- Development and validation of the prototype and user interface
- Representation of use cases through collaboration diagrams
- Elaborations of the design model
- Development of the implementation model, generated from the design
- Generation of the test model from use cases
- Once the design is completed, it will be validated against the customer's requirements. The scope of the project will be validated and an estimate will be made. Revisions, if any, are made at this stage.
Stage 3: Developing the application
In the development stage, our developers will create the actual code based on the finalized design documents. The application will then be tested against the customer's requirements and test cases. The following will be accomplished in this phase:
- Development of the code in accordance to design and implementation models
- Testing of the code according to test plans and cases
- Integration of the application
- Quality testing
- Customer acceptance tests are conducted and the customer provides feedback
- Debugging is conducted
- This stage ends with the customer's acceptance of the developed application.
Development, Integration and Testing
Stage 4: Integrating and testing the application
After development, the application will be deployed on a live server. Test plans, deployment maps and user acceptance criteria will be used in the integration process. An acceptance report and a deployment plan will be created along with the integrated software. Our developers will then implement the application at the customer's premises or hosting server. This is followed by the implementation sign-off by the customer. We follow a strict project schedule for integration and testing of any application.
Integration and Testing
Stage 5: Deploying the application
In the final stage of deployment, the software application will be developed according to the deployment plan. After the deployed software is accepted by the customer, we will form a maintenance team that will continue to provide support to the customer.
