Features & Services of Software Development Life Cycle - SDLC Solutions

  1. 1. Features & Services of Software Development Life Cycle - SDLC SolutionsSoftware Development Lifecycle (SDLC) can be best defined as a framework with a set of tasks that are conductedout at each stage of software development process. SDLC is a format that is followed by a development teamwithin the software enterprise. It comprises of a detailed plan that described the ways to develop, maintain andsubstitute certain software. SDLC also defines a methodology for enhancing the software quality and the overalldevelopment process.Conventionally, there always has been a difference between the operations and development team. A part of itbranches out from systems being set up and then shifted to operations to put into production with lesscoordination. For programmers, the software development life cycle dictates out enterprise standards centeringon the creation and maintenance of applications. SDLC took the concept of application creation a step aheadincluding the mix of hardware and software. The generic SDLC process covers aspects such as definition,requirements, practices, developments, testing, implementation and many more.However, whilst all these are good there area of concern is that they also follow the conventional software andhardware orientation. Instead of that we are required to think about IT service management and the services thatwe are provisioning to the business. Rather than a SDLC at times it is therefore essential to concentrate on aservice development cycle. This apart, there are three main aspects of SDLC that is requirements definition,architecture and testing.  Service Requirements DefinitionIn order to understand and fulfill the business needs it is essential to involve relevant including security,compliance and IT operations.  Service ArchitectureIn terms of architecture, optimizing a service means that there is an identification that a system of inter-connectedcomponents are being assembled in order to deliver the services required by the business.  Service TestingThe development of test plans highlights requirements for a services mindset. In order to completely understandhow a service will perform in production testing is needed in a manner that it reflects how the service will bedelivered.Today solution providers specializing in application lifecycle management have introduced high-end SDLC solutionsthat include:  Requirements Management  Test Management  Issue Management  Risk Management  Release Management  Document Management  IT Project ManagementOther SDLC functions such as Build Management and Configuration Management can be achieved by incorporatingthird party tools and using easy bi-directional data transfer adapters that are designed for integration platform.Simultaneously, the solution also provides a standardized and systematic procedure for every stage of softwaredevelopment.Other Links - Requirements traceability matrix & TFS Integration
