Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

SDLC is a popular practice that is followed by different organizations for designing and developing high-quality software applications.  It acts as a framework that holds some specific tasks to be achieved at every phase during the software development progression. This article will give you deep insight into the need for software development in various stages of SDLC.


    SDLC Waterfall Model

    Waterfall model is a traditional SDLC model which will be discussed in this chapter. It is a straightforward and basic structure which can be easily understandable by software developers and testers. It is the first model of SDLC to be introduced for software development.


      SDLC Spiral Model

      The spiral model is another important SDLC model that came into use when the iteration in product development came into the applied concept. Learn about the benefits of the spiral model and its various phases.

        SDLC Prototype Model

        The Prototyping Model is a methodology that is treated as a model for software development where a prototype - which is a premature approximated sample of the final product, is constructed and then tested.


          SDLC Iterative Model

          The iterative software development model is an approach of segmenting any large software development process into smaller portions. This type of SDLC model does not target to establish a complete specification plan.


            SDLC V-Model

            The V-model of SDLC carries out its execution in a sequential manner. The structure it follows takes the shape of the letter V. This model is also popularly termed as a Verification and Validation model.


              SDLC Agile Model

              The Agile software development model was mainly intended for helping developers build a project which can adapt to transforming requests quickly. So, the most important endeavor for developing the Agile model is to make easy and rapid project achievement.

                SDLC RAD Model

                RAD which is abbreviated as Rapid Application Development Model, is based on the concepts of both iterative and prototyping development model. It is another popular model for software development and has its characteristics and features.

                  SDLC Big Bang Model

                  The Big Bang Model is popular in situations or adopted in cases where the project's stakeholders or customers are not certain regarding their wants and requirements. They also haven't analyzed all the necessary features and characteristics they plan to incorporate into their system.

                    SDLC JAD Model

                    Collaboration and then building software is the key power which drives technology and its innovation. JAD is a model for software development that augments the stakeholders' association in cycles of software development. Its life cycle has been adopted for areas […]
