The business environment around us is constantly changing. Nowadays many businesses even hire professional software and web developers, so that they can fetch help in developing software which can reduce the manual work load. And when talking about website,software developers are the most primary demand of all those who are entering into business. But at the same time, delay in the development of website or software is also becoming very common. The primary reason behind it is the excess work load software companies have to handle today due to the increased market and less number of employees.
Software Development delay is gradually becoming a big problem. Opening a Software development firm is the easiest way. People start with minimum employees and, in order to grab a hold over the market, they start with more projects.Projects also get delayed when they are being drifted in a wrong direction. Developers often commit this mistake. They start working just after one or two meetings with the client and after those meetings they directly meet them at the end, this creates the communication gap and thus stops the information flow creating a grudge within.
This all can be avoided very easily with the help of SDLC (Software development life cycle) process. This cycle suggests the developer to consult his client every now and then to check if the software they are developing is as per their requirements. In fact developing a prototype and keeping it in front of the client before developing the full version of the software is a much better idea, and even save the developers’ time and efforts.
Even in case, when you do not want to follow the whole cycle, just work on developing the prototype. The best method through which you can avoid the delays is by undergoing thorough pre planned discussions and fixing the target in front of your team. You can even keep some expert review sessions.This will help you to know the pros and corns of your product. The team leader may also take suggestions from their team members, as sometimes the team members come up with excellent ideas. It is very important that you should check all the things before handing over the product to the client. Mistakes still persist to exist, for we are humans. Repetitive development should be followed in this case which helps in correcting the mistakes at early stages of development.
