Have you been looking around at the 4D Methodology that has been becoming popular so steadily? It may happen that you like it but are unable to understand the framework behind it. This lack of understanding can be the reason several people are reluctant about looking for professional 4D Methodology services.
In fact, there is a step-by-step framework behind the development of this information system. We truly believe that as a potential client, it is important for you to be familiar with the way this structure works. Here are the four main steps involved in our 4D Methodology.
Before even determining the design of a certain project, it is important to define its requirements. It is imperative to focus on what needs to be accomplished at the end of the project, so that the techniques can be devised before the initiation.
This is what ensures that the development of the project will progress in a way that satisfies your requirements. It is due to this reason that the planning stage is extremely crucial for us. We particularly predetermine the requirements and the concept of the design. We also focus on minor planning components like the functions that are going to be used during the project.
Only after the planning has been accomplished thoroughly and has been approved by you, the client, we move on to working with our software designers. These are the experts who will make sure that your application is designed exactly like you are imagining it. To make sure that even the most minor flaws are eliminated, we always keep the client involved in the process.
This means that you will be in thorough contact with us throughout the designing process and will be approving the solutions the graphic designers come up with. Do not worry if you are not familiar with complex graphic designing methodologies. We will make sure that we explain the common processes to you and keep you updated while we work on the functional designs, system architecture, technical layout and testing strategies for your program.
This is the stage where the time-consuming work actually begins. This is because your application actually needs to be built here. If we are working on your website, for example, we will need to execute the previously planned design and to code it.
We also develop applications for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, in which case this stage will involve assembling the functions of the application. If you are thinking that this stage is only about coding, it is not. In fact, it also involves testing the developed program for quality, documenting the program and, in case it is needed, changing the management.
It may seem to you that all the necessary steps have been completed, but they have not. The last stage, deploying, is just as important as the rest. This is when your program is actually introduced to your audience. In the case of a website, for example, this is where we set up a domain and begin hosting the site.
This final stage involves installation, conversion of data as well as support training. In order to make sure that the creation of the application does not go to waste, we also take the responsibility of marketing your application. Once it has reached the users, post implementation reviews are also documented under the last stage.
