Buyer's Guide


What is the advantage of building custom software?

Custom software is a tailor-made software specifically designed based on specific needs. Developing custom software entails identifying the specific needs of an organization and building software accordingly.

The major advantage with custom made software is that you can dictate terms, and make the product according to your specific needs. As the product is designed according to your needs, your team will be able to perform tasks faster, thus increasing the overall productivity of your enterprise.

 While choosing a custom software developer, you can consider outsourcing as it has proven to be beneficial time and again. You not only get the benefit of cost, but you also gain access to a broader talent pool as you are not confined to geographical boundaries while awarding your software development project. 

 


What are the different types of software development methodologies and why it matters?

 Before choosing a custom software development company, you must know certain basics about different methodologies of developing a software. 

The waterfall methodology

This is the oldest method of software development. In this method, a rigid linear model of development is followed which consists of linear sequential phases each focusing on a distinct goal. The problem with this method is that a complete cycle must be finished before the next phase can be started. Modifications are not easy and this is what makes the process slow and costly.

The Agile Methodology

As developers got frustrated with the rigidity and low flexibility of the waterfall method, Agile methodology of software development was introduced. In agile, stress is on maintaining a robust communication with the client about the development process. It easily accommodates changes and it is equipped to handle complexity and variability normally seen during development projects.

Scrum Methodology

Under the scrum methodology, the development team is encouraged to do close collaboration.

Scrum takes an evidence-based empirical approach and acknowledges the fact that customers will change their minds mid- way about their requirements. Although the method is highly flexible and gives the decision making power in the hands of the team it is not suitable for big size projects and requires a highly expert team with no place for novices.

Extreme programming

Extreme programming was created with the aim of building a software without thinking too much about the frequent changes in the requirements. Keeping costs down was another aim with which extreme programming was born.

The major advantage of extreme programming is that it establishes rational plans in schedules and focuses on involving the customer in every stage of development. But the issue with extreme programming is that the exact possibilities and future outcomes are unknown and its effectiveness really depends on the people who are involved.

You should know about the different methodologies of software development so that you can choose the best methodology according to your project requirements.


Which are the different stages of the Software Development Life Cycle?

Now that you have some basic detail about the methodologies that are used to develop your software, let's have a look at the Software Development Life Cycle.

Understanding the requirement

 In this stage you and the software developers will brainstorm to understand the current problems. It is best to get inputs from all the various stakeholders like customers, industry experts, developers as well as business developers.  

Planning stage

 In the planning stage you will chalk out a road map of the software development process. The allocation of resources is determined along with the budget after analysing the requirements of the project with the software development firm. 

Design stage

The design specifications are prepared in this phase. Once the specifications are prepared then all the stakeholders review the design specifications and offer their feedback and suggestions.

Development stage

 This is the stage where the actual development work starts. It is crucial to ensure that the custom software development company sticks to the plan. You should provide your inputs regarding the process of software development and engage with the person in-charge of over-viewing the development of your project to ensure that the end-product is as per your specifications. 

Testing stage

 This is the phase where the top custom software development companies fix the bugs and issues that normally creep in while developing the software. The testing of the software is done to ensure that the product meets its intended specifications.  

Deployment and maintenance of the software

Once the product is tested successfully then it is ready to be delivered to you. There are separate deployment and implementation engineers who will ensure that the software is smoothly deployed and any additional information if required is provided regarding using the new software.

After the software is deployed, normally some issues crop up, which can be due to either human errors or technical errors. To address these issues, the software company hired by you undertakes the maintenance schedule as per the SLA (Service Level Agreement).


How to outsource your Custom Software Development requirements to the best company?

If you are outsourcing your project development to a software development company, there are certain aspects which you must ensure that the selected service provider is capable of

Should be a master of multiple technology stacks

Understand that a software development firm should have proper knowledge about various technologies stacks to develop the most appropriate software product. Have a clear discussion about the type of platform and the technology stack which the software developers intend on using to build your project. If the company says that they are going to use the Java programming language in your project then they must have expert Java developers who have good knowledge of the language.

Should have a robust process of software development

Software development is all about handling the process of developing a software product. All the experienced custom software development companies will have a robust process. Ask the representative about the plan to proceed with your project. A company which does not have a process will beat around the bush when you ask this question. Such a company should be avoided at all costs.

Should have a dedicated and experienced software development team

Software development is a team game and no company can produce high quality software without having an experienced dedicated team of software developers.

Understand that there are many companies in the industry who claim to have a dedicated team but outsource their work to other smaller companies or freelancers. This is a clear Red flag as the quality is compromised. Hence before awarding the project, check the credentials of the team and make it a point to have a one-on-one discussion with all the important team members who will be working on your project.

Should provide great post-development support

Many companies believe that once the software is developed, the work is finished. On the contrary, the work has just begun. You will need constant support from the software development partner, as many bugs start surfacing when you start using the software in the real world. You do not want to end up with software that does not serve the purpose. Hence the software development agency should be able to provide the required maintenance and support.

Be very clear to ask the software developers about the time duration and the extent of support that they will provide once the software is deployed. Ask about annual maintenance contracts, and what things will be included in these contracts. It is found that the efficient software development companies are more confident in its work and will generally give you a more extensive warranty.


What are the factors affecting the cost of a software development project?

The cost of software development depends on a diverse set of factors. We shall have a look at some of the most important factors.

Time

As you might be aware, normally the top software development companies have their costing defined based on the number of hours. The more time it takes to develop your software project, the more will be the project's cost. Having experienced hands working on your project will help in saving time. This is because while working on a project, it happens that due to the lack of experience or proper guidance from the experts there is a lot of time lost in fixing issues rather than actual development taking place. If an experienced team of software developers are working on your project, then there is a higher possibility that they would have solved similar problems in their previous projects.

Complexity of the project

The more complex the development of your software is, the time required will also be high and consequently the cost will also increase. The complexity of the project increases with its scope. If you decide to increase the number of features, the number of third-party integrations and the number of user types for your software, then the scope will also increase accordingly. As the scope of the development requirements increase, so will the requirement of resources to develop, hence increasing the cost of the project. Also more demanding software applications require expert software developers for which the companies charge a higher amount.

Location

The location in which a custom software development company is located plays an important role in determining the cost. Understand that a company hailing from a country having higher number of software developers will agree to develop your software at an economical rate. If you choose a company from India, then the software development costs will be significantly lower than if you choose a company from North America.
