About Custom Software



Custom software development has also been known as “bespoke software” or “tailor-made software” software that is developed for some specific company or organization or other users. It can be contrasted with the use of software packages developed for the mass market, such as commercial off-the-shelf  (COTS) software, or existing free software.

Since custom software is developed for a single customer it can accommodate that customer’s particular preferences and expectations for their company. Custom software may be developed in continual processes, allowing all degrees of possible hidden risks to be taken into account, including issues which were not mentioned in the original requirement specifications.  The first phase in the software development process may involve many departments, including marketing, engineering, research and development, and general management.

The 6 Stage process of Custom Software Development

The process of  customsoftware development services goes through a series of stages in every development company.  This is also known as the ‘software development life cycle,’ these six steps include planning, analysis, design, development & implementation, testing & deployment and maintenance. Let’s go over each of these steps to know how the custom software is developed. 

Step 1 : Planning

Without the perfect plan, calculating the strengths and weaknesses of the project, development of software is meaningless. Planning kicks off a project flawlessly and affects its progress positively.

Step 2 : Analysis

To analyze the performance of the software at various stages and while making notes on additional requirements. The analysis is very important to proceed further to the next step of design.

Step 3 : Design

Once the analysis is completed, then designing takes over, which is basically building the architecture of the project. The step removes possible flaws by setting a standard and attempting to stick to it.

Step 4 : Development & Implementation

The undertaking of developing the software starts here with data recording going on in the background. Once the software has been developed, then the stage of implementation goes thru testing to see if its functioning properly.

Step 5 : Testing

The testing stage is to valuate the software for errors glitches and or bugs if there are any.

Step 6 : Maintenance

Once the software passes thru all the stages without any issues, it then usually goes thru and ongoing maintenance process where it will be maintained and upgraded from time to time to revise changes. Almost every software development company follows all the six steps, leading to the reputation in the software market today.
