WHAT IS SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT?
Software development is a term covering the process involved in an entire software release life cycle and resulting in a software product. It entails computer programming, documenting, testing, and bug-fixing when creating and maintaining applications and frameworks. The term refers to a process of writing and maintaining the source code. In a broader sense of the term it includes all that is involved from the conception of the desired software through to the final manifestation of the software. Ideally this occurs in a planned and structured process. Software development includes research, new development, prototyping, modification, reuse, engineering, maintenance, or any other combination.
Software can be developed for a variety of purposes. The three most common purposes include to meet specific needs of a specific client/business, to meet a perceived need of some set of potential users, or for personal use. Embedded software development is the development of computer software, written to control machines or devices that are not typically thought of as computers. For example, a digital dashboard display in your car that monitors your gas consumption and MPG would involve the use of embedded software. Successful interfacing requires the development process to be integrated with the development of the controlled physical product. System software underlies applications and the programming process itself, and is often developed separately.
The need for better quality control of the software development process has given rise to the discipline of software engineering. This profession aims to apply systematic approaches to the process of software development. The Scope 10 Software Development Team is highly skilled at working with programmers to systematically create computer code for a variety of applications. We have the capacity to develop new software, or work through glitches in existing systems.
There are many approaches to software project management, known as software development life cycle models, methodologies, processes, or models. The waterfall model is one method commonly used. Another innovative model is the agile software development model. The Scope 10 Software Development Team is knowledgeable across several approaches and will work closely with you to determine which approach will make the most sense.
