Application Development and Management

Application development when succeeded by robust application management gives an organization its ultimate value. Many organizations today struggle with application development because of several factors- firstly, the availability of many models for application development such as Agile, Spiral, Extreme Programming (XP), Rational Unifies Process (RUP), Waterfall, and Incremental and so on; secondly not a single process is universally applicable; and finally different tools are required to implement these life cycle process models.

Swift Technologies, Inc. helps its clients to find a flexible and simple solution to the problem of simplifying the development process. We help our clients to choose a process that is best useful for their business requirements.

In any life cycle model, there exists a dependency between requirements, specifications and other project artifacts, including documents, test cases, and design objects. Swift allows users to manage these dependencies with flexible linking features which provide full life cycle traceability. We simplify the application development process by making traceability a part of development instead of a separate task.

Likewise, Requirement analysis is essential for all the application development models. We provide powerful tools for requirement analysis. Traceability facilitates impact analysis and helps in creating an effective testing strategy. It improves and simplifies the entire development process.

Application management i.e. managing a product after its development is as important as the development itself. Quality is buzzword of present software industry and has become a serious concern.

The quality of a product can only be guaranteed only by following a methodical approach, appropriate tools and administration. The application management process must incorporate this methodology and administration. Integration of human efforts, technology tools, and intermediate and final work products into a coherent flow of actions must be the goal of this process.

The later the errors are found in system development life-cycle (SDLC) the more expensive it is to fix them. Defects found in released software are 80% more expensive to fix than defects found in speculation stage. A proper methodology has to be followed to bring early stages of SDLC up to a high level of maturity. This drastically reduces the downstream problems that plague many IT projects, which ultimately reduces cost and time overruns. To achieve this it is necessary to know two things- Know complete requirements and identify them in unambiguous manner.

Ours requirement centric and repository based solution provides the much required flexibility to use any formal process such as Agile, Waterfall etc or informal process such as extreme programming and others. In this way we help you to adopt any model appropriate to a particular project rather than depending on one particular process for all projects.
