Application Development Process
App development process at KloudData begins with the customer – the concept outlines the objective of the app and the value it is expected to deliver to the end user.
We work with our customers, right from concept development and feasibility analysis.
For consumer apps, our concept development process involves research and analysis on the scope of the application, its USP, its target users and the mileage it will offer the client’s brand. Our feasibility studies will gauge the economic, technical, schedule and operational feasibility of the app in question depending on its practicality and competitive advantage.
On completion of feasibility studies, we begin the actual app development process which follows a scheduled time frame and structured development
We do rapid prototyping with mock-up screens to get end users feedback and improve on the application design. Mock-ups are simple and easy to understand to depict the basic application flow and reviewed and improved in iterations with the end users. Development starts once the mock-up is approved. We use the MVC (Model View Control) framework, wherein, we can work on the Model in parallel with mock-ups and implement View & Control with approved screen designs.
The final design is handed over to the development team, who use a coding standard developed in-house to allow continuity in case a team member is replaced mid-project. This ensures there are necessary knowledge overlaps in the process. Each person also does the unit testing for their own piece. This helps reduce the bug fixing and testing time.
We have also developed customizable pre-designed business templates and process snippets. With these, the time spent on design and development process can be even further reduced.
