What does DM360’s app development process look like?
DM360 combined numerous years of expertise in app development with time-tested development methodologies to create a new agile approach. Additionally, by offering visibility, this approach makes development predictable & easy to manage.
Well, according to this approach, we first select one of four software development lifecycle (SDLC) frameworks & then adjust it to the project based on the type of company as well as your business needs. Also, SDLC is a term used in the software development industry for a framework that defines tasks performed at each step of the software development process.
Phases of Mobile app development
Well, this is the initial phase that precedes the start of the project. Dm360 team cares about the intellectual property of our clients, so we’ll send you an NDA right after you contact us & will sign it before we start negotiations.
Also, during this phase, we hold several calls with you as well as gather the information that will help us choose the right technology stack, team structure, & technology solution for your specific business challenge. Besides, we define possible risks that can slow down development or cause issues & search for ways to eliminate them.
Next, on the basis of this information, we create a personalized offer. And, this offer contains all information about your project, including the tech stack as well as a team structure. Well, upon your request, we’ll also make a rough estimate of the project. Also, these deliverables will help you understand how we’ll solve your specific business challenges.
Secondly, our SDLC starts after signing all the required documents. And, the first phase of the SDLC is discovery. Also, this phase consists of several stages:
c) Requirements for the development team
Next, each feature passes through the following stages of development:
Firstly, at this stage, the design is turned into code & other artifacts (database, automation tests, etc.). Our team keeps an eye on the quality of our products. Thus, in addition to implementing the UI design, our developers conduct regular technical audits & test developed functionality.
Whenever developers implement a feature, we test it, validate it, & register defects. Well, after getting QA reports describing all defects, our developers fix them until the product meets the requirements & works smoothly.
Next, to be sure everything will work smoothly after deployment, we move to stabilization. And, at this point, we make a backup so we won’t lose data in case of an emergency. Also, then we conduct verification testing.
Well, an integrated development and testing environment, as well as a production server, are crucial for successful stabilization and deployment. Also, our DevOps engineers set up this environment. Therefore, after that, developed and accepted functionality is sent to the integrated development & testing environment.
Lastly, the moment has come your app is ready to meet its end users. Therefore, sometimes, a product may first be released to a limited audience for beta testing & be tested in a real business environment. Well, this is called user acceptance testing, or UAT.
Post-release support phase
Further, we offer post-release product support services that enable you to enhance as well as upgrade your web or mobile app after its official release. And, with this service, you’ll be sure you can quickly make changes to your product, so if you suddenly come up with a great new feature or start receiving feedback from users on how to improve your app.
