The focus of a SDLC process it to help produce a product that is cost-efficient, effective, and of high quality. Once an application is created, the SDLC maps the proper placement and decommissioning of the software once it becomes a legacy. The SDLC methodology usually contains the following stages: Analysis (requirements and design), construction, testing, release, and maintenance (response). Veracode makes it possible to integrate automated security testing into the SDLC process through use of its cloud based platform.
The Four main advantages of the system development lifecycle are:
1. Formal review at the end of each phase allows maximum management control.
2. The SDLC approach creates considerable system documentation.
3. Formal documentation ensures that system requirements can be traced back to stated business needs.
4. It produces many intermediate products that can be reviewed to see whether they meet the user’s needs and conform to standards.
