A competent technical vendor solves your business challenges only half the battle. Care about the development process, when you want the product to get developed of high quality and within the strict deadlines.
Contacting the technical partner would streamline the process and guarantee the stability along with the continuity of development.
How would our app development process look like?
To create a new agile approach, we have combined ten years of expertise in app development with time-tested development methodologies. To offer visibility, this approach would be easy to manage as well make the development predictable.
First, we select one of the four software development lifecycle (SDLC) frameworks and adjust to the project based on your business needs and the type of company. The SDLC team is used in the software development industry for a framework that defines tasks performed at each step of the software development process.
The Negotiation phase
This initial phase precedes the start of the project. The intellectual property of our clients are taken care of. So we send an NDA after you contact us and sign before we start the negotiations.
The negotiation phase makes several calls to gather information that would choose the right team structure, technology stack and technology solution for your specific business challenge.
The Discovery phase
Our SDLC starts after signing all the required documents.
The Agile development process
The first phase of the SDLC is discovery. This phase has several stages:
The detailed analysis of the company and on the business niche is conducted by our business analyst. They conduct competitor and market analysis, gather business requirements and define buyer personas.
The business analyst creates business objective models and value stream. The deliverables are researched by our UI/UX designer and the solution architect.
Our solution architect uses this information to analyse the project’s architecture and searches for the best technical solutions to solve your business problems as they come up with an architectural vision for the product.
Our UI/UX design creates the first drafts of the product’s design. After discussing the look and feel of the product, a designer would conduct UI and UX research that creates UI concepts and picks a colour palette.
The product roadmap, a design backlog, functional and non-functional requirements are prepared by our business analyst. Our designers turn your expectations into a user-friendly design after obtaining a design backlog. They would create wireframes to show elements like menus and buttons that are placed on the screen. Once the wireframe gets ready, the right time comes to design the product.
In the meantime, our solution architect would create software design and documents. This contains the quality metrics, API documentation, database architecture, technical requirements and non-functional requirements.
The development phase
Every feature passes through the two stages of development:
The design is turned into artefacts or code like automation tests and the database. An eye is kept on the quality of products. This implements the UI design by conducting test developed functionality with regular technical audits.
The developers implement a feature, that we test, validate and register the defects. Obtain the QA report describing the defects, our developers fix until the product works smoothly and meets the requirements.
At stabilization, we back up so we don’t lose any data. We then conduct verification testing. For successful stabilization and deployment, we need the integrated development and testing environment along with the production server.
The DevOps engineer would set up the environment. The accepted and developed functionality is then sent to the integrated development and testing environment.
The app gets finally ready to meet its end users. First, the product is released to a limited audience for beta testing and then tested in a real business environment called user acceptance testing or UAT.
The scrum methodology is applied to divide the whole scope of work into sprints. The Sprints at PromptTech would last for two weeks, where we develop the particular part of the application defined in the sprint backlog.
We iteratively work rather than working on the whole application. We usually deploy features and develop during the sprint. The results are seen every two weeks rather than waiting till the end of development.
The Post-release support phase
The post-release product support services enhance and upgrade your mobile app or web after its official release. This can quickly make changes to your product if you come up with a new feature or receive feedback from users on how to improve your app.
