Design Methodology


We follow a systematic and step-by-step methodology for all our Internet and Web application custom software development. In our Application software design and Application application development methodology we first follow our clients’ defined processes and methods, and then incorporate our own internal process steps wherever they are appropriate, with clients’ approval. This approach applies to eCommerce, eBusiness custom application development as well as traditional Client-Server or Legacy software development. In absence of clients’ defined methodologies, we present a draft of Application application development methodology to be followed in a project and get approval from our clients.

The main objectives of following a methodology is to make the software development cycle as efficient as possible, to complete the design and development within lowest possible cost keeping the highest quality, and to achieve the fastest turn-around. Another important objective is to make future maintenance easier and faster. The Application software design and Application application development cycle for each and every (eCommerce, eBusiness custom application development) project is some way unique, depending on clients’ requirements and their unique operating environment. Design and development methodology also varies depending on the software, hardware technologies chosen by clients.

Web Application Development Methodologies

  • Discussion & analysis on Application application development: Objective and goal analysis, preliminary discussion on eCommerce, eBusiness, Web-site strategy and situation analysis, firming up strategy
  • Technology, software evaluation
  • Cost analysis for development, operations, maintenance
  • Design initial layout/ features/ capabilities, prototype, relevant contents
  • Design iteration – complete several rounds of revisions, reviews and refinements
  • Define final design, layout and features
  • Develop/implement web application, including web-site (graphics, back-end software, content, integration with 3rd party and external software)
  • User testing, functionality testing, performance testing, acceptance testing
  • Client sign-off
  • Final launch and deployment
