Determine what your company wants and does not want. This stage of SDLC means getting input from all assigned governance, stakeholders, including customers, salespeople, industry experts, and programmers.


Define and plan the solution. In this stage of SDLC, our team of experts plans the requirements of the new software and determines the cost and resources required. It also details the risks involved and provides sub-plans for mitigating those risks. In this stage, a Software Requirement Specification document is created.


Document how we will meet your specific needs and solution. This phase of SDLC starts by turning the software specifications into a design plan called the Design Specification. All stakeholders then review this plan and offer feedback and suggestions. It’s crucial to have a plan for collecting and incorporating stakeholder input into this document.

Build or Buy.

Establish the solution to meet your company’s objectives. This SDLC stage develops or secures the software by providing or generating all the actual code.


Ensure that the software works and is protected as intended. In this stage, we test for defects and deficiencies. Under a formal tracking and reporting structure, we fix any identified deficiency or issue until the product meets the original specifications.


Under monitored settings, within best practices of control, we deploy the software for use and benefit. Often, this part of the SDLC process happens in a limited way at first. Depending on feedback from end users, more adjustments can be made.


Provide for ongoing monitoring and maintenance. This phase of the plan ensures sustainability and effectiveness of the software. Additionally, as conditions in the company or regulations change, maintenance allows update of your software to align with those changes.
