Use our team to Create your App, Web Product , Desktop tool or all of em. We've been doing IT since the year 2000.
Developing something involves math, logic, science, passion and a process. It also needs a fruit, such as an apple to fall on your head to get the ideas rolling. The design engineering process goes through constant ideations, even after market introduction. Development is a constant change and improvement a necessity. The most challenging part in all of this is managing the team and deliverables. BluEnt holds your hand and takes you through all the ten steps of creating a robust application. We even climb trees and hit you with apples if you run out of ideas. The actual "development" or coding is just one of the 10 stages of the application development process.
Goals and Objectives: Getting hit by an apple causes some dizziness and excitement. This is the part where we get a clarity on the vision + mission and define the attributes of the app that we want to create and the desired results.
Brainstorming: Its best of have all heads on deck. All stakeholders (users, customers, management, developers, partners) need to be satisfied. So why not involve them earlier in the process? Creating a development think tank and talking about everyone's needs and wants upfront confirms the application being a success.
Shortlisting & Organizing: All the ideas, inputs, features, technologies are on the table. Now all this information is laid out by our consultants in meaningful layers of sketches and flow diagrams to imagine a users journey.
Testing the Concept: Fuzzy front end prototyping. Creating rough dummies of the application. We leave little to the imagination of stakeholders by creating static screens of the software. It's like creating a cheap fake before making the original with limited clicks and functionality. Just enough to get feedback and mostly to present it and get an idea if the application design is intuitive.
Business Feasibility: Here is where we do all the estimation and costing. Once the concept is frozen we plan the team of developers, designers, architects and testers required to create the app. It is very important to plan this part out, specially for funded ventures, it's the time to revisit the business plan. The smart plan that comes out of this stage is a phased approach to launch and divide the application into releases and version to maximize the returns on investment and to tie in the development goals with the business goal and the funds available.
Time to market, features and budget are the usual negotiators of this stage.
re(Design) & Documentation: It's time to put the brains behind the bucks. Our architects, data scientists, business analysts and caffeine get together gather the detailed requirements and engineer the product into its specification documentation. The final technology and platform decision are designed.
Development: Logic is typed into creating the application. There is nothing much to say except to code at this stage of development. Mainly because everything that is done up till now in the previous stages is to prepare to program. Well documented specifications make breaking down the work at this stage very easy.
Test Runs: We throw, user cases, situations, "what ifs" and knifes at the application (under adult supervision) until it cries or sings. It's the only way to figure out if it's stable or a split personality.
Launch: Depending if its a new application or a switchover, the pre-implementation involves taking care of all the dependencies and selecting the downtime (if any). Getting something online does not guarantee that people would use it. Training, awareness and making sure that users believe that "New" is to make things easier makes the mission.
Improve: As long as there is an application there is a wishlist. And as long as there is a wishlist there is development to be done. Development is in fact improvement. It's time to grow ! and why not?
