Our Travel App Development End-To-End Process
Planning and analysis
During the SDLC process’s most essential phase, we compiled and examined the business requirements. For the application to succeed, quality assurance, technological viability, and the identification of potential hazards are the goals of the requirements analysis.
Designing the product architecture
Our developers and technical architects produce the initial high-level design plan for the software and system during the design process. Among them is the supply of the requirements utilized to generate the Design Document Specification (DDS). This document describes the database tables to be added, the new transactions to be specified, the security procedures, and the hardware and system requirements.
Developing and coding
Our developer creates and imports the necessary data into the database during this stage. They build the interface in accordance with the coding standards and do unit testing. If you make any adjustments, our developers are adaptable and open-minded.
To ensure that the application meets the demands identified and discussed throughout the planning process, our developers test the app against the specifications. Unit tests, integration tests, system tests, acceptance tests, and non-functional tests are all performed as functional tests.
