Impact of Agile Methodology on Software Development Practices
“In the fast-phased technological world, it becomes utmost important to rely on a custom software development that provides the right medium to achieve productive results of exceptional quality.”
– Chris Kambala
Software development is the cumulative processes associated with creating software programs, exemplifying all the stages through the software development life cycle (SDLC).
Typical phases of SDLC:
- Gathering the software requirements
- Analysis of the software requirements
- Detailed specification of the software requirements
- Software design
Every phase of the software development life cycle has its own importance and produce the required product for the next phase of the SDLC. These stages cover the complete life cycle of a software i.e. from inception to deployment.
Technology in this current era is progressing faster than ever, enforcing the global software companies to work in a fast-paced changing environment. Because these businesses are operating in an ever-changing environment it is impossible to gather a complete and exhaustive set of software requirements. Without these requirements, it becomes practically hard for any conventional software model to work.
The conventional software models such as the Waterfall Model that depends on completely specifying the requirements, designing, and testing the system are not geared towards rapid software development. Therefore a conventional software development model fails to deliver the required product.
This is where Agile Software Development comes to the rescue. Agile was introduced in a quest to shorten the time-to-market and deliver high-quality software applications faster and at a lower cost.
The word ‘Agile’ implies to an ability to create and respond to change. An Agile software application development process begins with defining the users by documenting a vision statement on the extent of problems, opportunities, and values to be tended to. The product owner apprehends this vision and works with a multidisciplinary team (or teams) to deliver this vision.
There are number of Agile frameworks like Scrum, Kanban, etc. aligned to SDLC which provide specifics on the development process and Agile software development practices. While these agile frameworks define procedures and coordinated effort, agile development practices are explicit to addressing commercial software application development tasks implemented in alignment with an agile framework.
When it comes to advanced software application development on an Agile platform, Maple Software is your go-to company. Maple Software sets the standard in cross-platform custom software development. Our software engineers design software that delivers a consistent user experience on a PC, tablet, phone, or embedded devices. Using the latest technology in the development process guarantees an intuitive interface and powerful performance.
Besides development, our engineers at Maple Software have a passion for getting all our software applications to drive greater adoption and utilization. The Maple team has professional engineers with years of application development experience working on designs, business analysis, project management, customized database development and has worked in various industries namely Judiciary, Healthcare, Healthcare Consultancy, and Public Safety.
Once the software application development phase is done, we move over to software testing and quality assurance. Our distinctive procedures evaluate your current testing strategy and quality goals to create a roadmap of how people, tools, and processes can quickly enable better software. Our teams establish the right level of test coverage and approach to lower the risk of testing across multiple browsers, environments, and devices. From manual to automated testing, we help create the right balance of testing methods to move fast in an agile world that consolidates the best practices of continuous software testing and integration.
Maple Software visualizes things from a customer’s perspective and puts their needs as the topmost priority. We analyze and utilize the latest technologies to ensure our customers get the best, saving your time by providing ideas, structuring and prioritizing them into feasible phases to apply to your business. We mix experience with trends and show our value through results.
