Now that this seemingly “Eternal Sunshine of an IS Mind” is finishing up tonight I would like my final blog to briefly summarise the Systems Development Lifecycle (SDLC) in IS.
- Basically Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a process that organisations use to develop information systems.
- It was introduced to address the problems faced during the software development process.
- SDLC is a disciplined and systematic approach that divides the software development process into various phases, such as requirement, design, and coding.
- The phase-wise development process helps to track schedule, cost, and quality of the software projects life cycle.A
Overview of SDLC Phases:
Establishes a high-level view of the intended project and determines its goals.
Analyses end-user information needs in terms of what the IS should do.
Describes desired features and operations in detail – how the parts of an information system should be implemented.
Convert final physical system specifications into working and reliable software.
Software Changes are made here.
There are various SDLC methodologies which have developed over the past and guide us through the software development life cycles. The major SDLC methodologies are :
- Waterfall Method
- Rapid Application development (RAD)
- Prototyping Model
- Spiral model
The following brief video explains SDLC in simple terms:
Thanks for reading my blogs! I hope they helped you to understand SDLC and its phases more clearly. Thanks for all the comments and best of luck with your projects 🙂
