The steps of going from planning to launch collectively are what is called the Software Development Lifecycle or SDLC. An SDLC is the sequence of steps that take place during the development of software. The importance of having a clear process and knowing your development steps can’t be understated.

Having a proper process of SDLC has its benefits like:

  • Communication channels are defined between developers and project stakeholders
  • Clear roles and responsibilities are set for the entire team
  • Proper definition of “Done” for each step so that the project can keep moving
  • Formal process to handle bugs, feature update and change requests

There are different steps in SDLC and they are pretty much the same throughout all development projects. Though the order, the sequence of steps can change depending on the project, its goals and objectives.

The stages of SDLC are:

  • Analysis and Planning
  • Requirements
  • Design and prototyping
  • Software development
  • Testing
  • Deployment
  • Maintenance and updates
