Phase #1: Proof of Concept (POC)
A proof of concept is generally made in the early development cycle of software as a clear illustration of the high level concept. It will validate the technical feasibility, identify possible expectations from the platform, expose potential stumbling blocks and determine the scope and need for customization to complete a project. The entire design of the software will be explained thoroughly in the POC documentation.
Phase #2: Architecture Design
In this phase, the architecture designers will convert the product concept into a blueprint for development, which will further become a product design for creating a robust working software. You will be provided with an ideal architecture based on the project requirements. The complete process will be carried out while maintaining a delicate balance between functionality, quality, performance benchmark and time-to-market.
Phase #3: Product Prototypes
The software prototype is a beta version of the product which has all the major features, although some of them may not be fully finished. Once a product prototype is created clients can compare to see if it meets the defined specifications. It will also allow the software engineers to gain some insights about the accuracy of initial project estimates and whether the milestones and deadlines planned ahead can be successfully achieved.
Phase #4: Product Engineering
The software product engineering stage helps in continually innovating, deploying new products, improving time-to-market skills and maintaining large product portfolios cost-effectively.
Phase #5: Digital Marketing/Product Marketing Strategies
The software product marketing includes complete market research with emphasis on understanding the persona of the consumer. The marketing team performs activities such as product positioning, messaging, competitive differentiation, creating marketing collaterals, and execute go-to-market strategy.
Phase #6: Proof of Valuable Measures
Once a product is launched and product marketing strategies are implemented, the efforts are further measured to check the effectiveness of the software product. This process is carried out using the best practices.
Phase #7: Feature Enhancements
The software products need to continually innovate to maintain a competitive edge in the market. Also, with the changing markets and changing business models, it is important that existing application's feature enhancements are developed rapidly by integrating the latest product features.
Phase #8: Redesigning
The IT industry is evolving faster than any other. Even a recently developed product may require a refresh within a span of months. Even if it fulfills the user's needs now, it may still need to be modernized as per the market trends and client specifications.
Phase #9: Maintenance and Support
Maintenance is necessary to remove errors in the system during its working life and to finetune the system to any variations in its environment. The maintenance and support engineers with extensive experience in corrective, adaptive, perfective and preventive maintenance will deliver a blend of maintenance and support services.
