Is it Time for a SDLC Plan to Get Your Software Released?

Wrapping your head around all the preparations necessary to release new software can be daunting.  It's no small project and, if you've never been through the process before, it can be extremely easy to forget a step to check, miss a bug that needs fixing, skip a perspective that needs considering, etc.  These mistakes can be disastrous to your project.  Even if you are familiar with the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and have worked on software releases in the past, every software release is different and each project is unique.  Perhaps you have led a project in another organization and you feel comfortable running the steps because of the experiences you’ve had. This doesn’t mean, however, that you’ll be able to finish your next project with the same level of ease. Every project, every team, every organization, and every situation is different. There are a lot of factors that weigh into the success of a project.  So, the question is, is it time for a SDLC plan to get your software released?

New Approach to the New Year

After taking a look back through our 2014 year in review: here we discovered something interesting... We got a little lost in technology this year.  Who hasn't?  When we look back over our most popular articles of all time, we see common themes.  SDLC, custom solutions, consulting, DNN, etc.  All things we DO.  All things we LOVE TO DO.  So, why all the tech articles?  We'll, they're so nice and new and shiny.  Everyone is talking about them.  However, the readers have spoken and it's time for us to get back on track

UI/UX – What’s the difference?

User Interface / User Experience Overview

User Interface and User Experience can be a bit confusing at first, so let’s start way back at the beginning. When it comes to the design, User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) are two of the main ingredients to a successful application or product. Your goal is to have an end result that is a good balance between both UI and UX. But, what exactly are they and how are they different?

Software Development Life Cycle - Getting it right for you

SDLC Overview

SDLC, or Software Development Life Cycle, is a process classified into a set of phases. These phases, or steps, provide a model for the development and lifecycle management of an application or piece of software. What does that mean exactly? Basically, SDLC is the outline used to frame whatever methods you’d like to use for the creation of information or a software system. It’s a step-by-step process involved in the development of a software product. That’s what makes it the software development process. SDLC is the, “Why do we need this?”, “What problems might we face?”, “Let’s design and put this thing in motion” model.

Consultants: The Importance of Being an Expert

​As a consultant, you’ll run into situations nearly daily where you are meeting new people who want to hear about what you do. I get questions regularly on topics that I consult on. Many times these conversations come up on the spot and out of a normal business environment.  So, what do you do when you’re approached, totally unprepared, and you have to talk about your business out of the blue?
