The Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) provides a systematic process for building and delivering software applications from inception to completion. Different SDLC methodologies exist that can be used to deliver projects and in this post, we will give an overview of common SDLC models and their advantages and disadvantages.
When a software product is a success – the developers get the glory and when it fails – the testers get the blame! That’s the unfair story of a test professional’s life. It’s kind of weird that even when from… Read More »
SDLC Phases Explained What are the SDLC Phases? Software Development Life Cycle, or SDLC is a process used to develop software. There are different stages or phases within the Software Development Life Cycle and in each phase, different activities take… Read More »
Iterative / Incremental life cycle models, as the name suggests, focus on developing software in increments or chunks. Popular iterative models include the Agile methodologies such as Scrum, XP, etc. A common thread amongst the iterative models is that integrated… Read More »
An iterative life cycle model does not attempt to start with a full specification of requirements. Instead, development begins by specifying and implementing just part of the software, which can then be reviewed in order to
RAD is, in essence, the “try before you buy” approach to software development. The theory is that end users can produce better feedback when examining a live system, as opposed to working strictly with documentation
The spiral model starts with an initial pass through a standard waterfall lifecycle, using a subset of the total requirements to develop a robust prototype. After an evaluation period, the cycle is initiated again, adding
