Software Product Development is NOT the Same as Standard App Development!
If your enterprise wants to create a software product for the consumer or business market, your executive team may want to hand over the project to an internal IT team. If your in-house IT team is up to the challenge, that’s great. But, for most enterprises, the prospect of creating a software product for market is daunting and typically results in cost and time overruns and does not succeed.
So, as the executive team interviews outside vendors to help them, they often look at companies that provide app development and custom software development. But, it is important to note that software product development is not the same as standard software development.
The investment and time required to conceive, design and develop a software product can be overwhelming and there are many ways a business can get off track. The software product development and design process includes competitive analysis, technical feasibility, product roadmap management, and implementation and timely upgrades of the product to satisfy the ever-changing user and technology needs. If your organization is to be successful in this effort, the software product you conceive must be developed and maintained with optimum standards and it must comply with the business plan and financial projections for the product.
If it is to succeed, Software Product Services must include state-of-the-art software engineering practices, appropriate technical architecture, versioning control, detailed technical and user documentation and high development and quality standards. The software product development process must include steps to refine product requirements and to create and manage clear goals to meet business and technology objectives, mitigate risk and produce products and output. The business must perform market analysis, comparative analysis, and functional and technical feasibility studies to facilitate and accelerate growth and market success. Very few internal business IT teams possess the resources or domain expertise to successfully develop a software product for market. If your business leverages the experience and skills of software product development experts to design and develop software products, your team can focus on core activities to advance market position and grow the business.
