Migrate your traditional build software development to the new technology platform and get better insights.
Software development is the whole end to end process. Mostly its to transform current manual human work into the newer way of automated processing. The software can be created which can make any computing task easy. Through Software development, we can eradicate major human errors and make the process smooth, fast and accurate. Majorly the need to make a software comes out of 2 situations 1) Task becomes tedious and takes a lot of human efforts. 2) Migrating old software.
Software Development Life Cycle
The software development life cycle (SDLC) is 7 stages.
- Requirements gathering
- Deployment, and
Each stage holds significance in delivering and deployment of successful software.
Sigma Data Systems follows each stage precisely to deliver world-class error-free software. They have qualified UI/UX designers and developers in various technologies. They work in Python, JAVA, PHP, React.js, Node.js, Angular.js, Golang, etc. Due to its mix pool of technology developers, they can create a hybrid architecture to support the best of each technology.
It has experienced QA to maintain the quality of the software throughout the development cycle. It engages the QA professional to keep a tap on quality and also continue with regression testing. Sigma Data Systems also has a separate DevOps team to make the deployment process continuous and smooth.
Methods of managing custom software development projects
There are various software development methodologies to drive the project. These are guiding principles that can drive the project on correct roadmap. It keeps all the involved stakeholders together moving on the same goal. However, every methodology has its unique characteristics. Major methodologies to choose from are described below:
- Scrum, etc.
The choice of methodology depends on the type and size of the project. Each has its own pros and cons. Sigma Data Systems can consult on making the choice of the methodologies. Sigma Data Systems has PMC certified managers as well as scrum certified. They have professionals who can drive the project from start to end and deliver the results.
Recording and creating artifacts of code and each stage is very important. Documentation of SDLC helps to track project status. Documentation helps to keep the project on track as well as helps for the smooth continuity of the project. Below are the documents Sigma Data Systems creates and preserves for all their software development projects.
This is the very initial document and crucial document. It consists of the work definition, milestones, deliverables, resource details. This is agreed and signed by both client and Sigma Data Systems to be agreed on common goals.
This document helps to keep an ongoing check on work getting developed against the date and time.
- Change control versions
At various stages changes are required due to different reasons, so important is to document them and also document its impact on various other places like timeline, project flow, etc.
- Additional feature approval version
If new small features added along the run while development, it has to go through approval projects. These additional features are getting recorded and also approved by all Stakeholders. Its implications are also recorded on other relevant documents.
- Status check report
This is a weekly report which traces the status against the plan and actual completed work. This is shared with all the stakeholders on a weekly basis.
- Developer notes
These are the notes made by the developer within the code to understand the functions.
- Code commit notes
Every commit from each developer has these notes stating the details of the commits. This helps in version control and also gives the ability for quick rollback.
- Test cases
These are the cases made by our Expert QA professional. These are tested against each milestone released version.
- Bug reports with regression testing
Each QA iteration generates bug reports which are fixed by software developers.
- Release notes
Every milestone/Sprint has released of the delivery it carries. Sigma believes in agile methodology has frequent delivery planned. This helps stakeholders to get a view of the product while its in development.
- Handover document
Sigma Data Systems has a free support period and also provides an annual maintenance contract. However, it also facilitates handover training and handover processes to the dedicated software developer team. This document contains a full overview of the product along with the Flow and server architecture diagram.
Sigma Data Systems believes to record each aspect of the software development which can help future collaboration with other teams working on projects. This document serves as guidelines.
Purchasing and customizing the software
The world is changing and moving on to follow microservice architecture. There are many ready to use microservices available. So instead of reinventing the wheel, just make the model over it. Sigma consults and helps to tailor the readily available solution to the exact needs of the client.
