Every software development company out there knows, that no matter how polished your internal processes are, things never go as expected. Software development is one of the most challenging and at the same time competitive industries today.
So naturally, every major business in this field strives to improve its productivity and optimize workflows to overcome most common challenges.
But what exactly are those challenges?
Poorly defined requirements come down to simple “Garbage in. Garbage out”. The difficulty in requirements gathering almost always associated with miscommunication between client and software development vendor.
Sometimes the client lacks certain technical expertise and therefore puts in front overly-optimistic expectations. Sometimes software developers cannot translate technological limitations into business perspective. Regardless of why it happens, made-project changes in requirements always cause delays, revisions and additional expenses.
Estimation & roadmap planning
Estimation of cost and clear planning happens at the very early stages of product lifecycle. And we all know that it is impossible to account for everything. It’s always a difficult task when you have to explain to the client that some deadline needs to be extended. So it’s very important to establish maximum transparency between two parties and keep communication lines on at all times.
Staying on top of the technology
This one is a clear responsibility of software development company. Staying on top of tech trends and be able to accommodate most innovative business requests is very important because the technology changes at a rapid pace. That is why it falls down on companies to continuously educate their employees and make sure that they as a business stay competitive.
Multiple testing & QA iterations
The best companies in software development sector have realized long ago that Testing and QA should never come as an afterthought or post-production process. Various iterations of testing need to occur throughout the project cycle.
And when you investigate the entire system, there will be bugs found. Many times the problem needs to be isolated to let the rest of the project move on. But in some cases, it is simply impossible and you reach a complete roadblock that slows down the development time.
