Design & Development Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

Software design is the practice of problem solving and planning a software solution using available capabilities and resources. First, the software purpose and specifications must be determined. Then, software developers design a plan for a solution including component, algorithm, and architectural details.

After design, software development begins with requirements analysis. The output of requirements analysis is detailed specifications used to engineer a solution. Software development is also known as application development or software application development and includes writing and maintaining source code, researching, prototyping, and re-engineering software products.

Software development is used frequently to meet the needs of clients or businesses, potential users, or personal use. When this process systematically employs the principles of engineering, it is known as software engineering. There are many approaches to software engineering but most processes include research, requirements gathering, problem analysis, planning, implementing, deploying, and maintaining the software. These stages are collectively known as the software development life cycle (SDLC).

There are many approaches to SDLC. Some are carried out one after another, known as a waterfall approach, while others are repeated over many cycles, known as an iterative, incremental, or agile approach. Agile development usually includes less planning and documentation and more time coding and developing. This approach also promotes continuous testing. Waterfall software development requires more detailed planning and risk assessment before coding begins. This process seeks to avoid design changes later in the project. There are advantages and disadvantages to different methodologies, and the best approach often depends on the type of problem.
