Why is the Discovery Phase important?
Whether your software development plan is for a large-scale enterprise system or a start-up application, it is essential to include a discovery phase. In all software development projects, miscommunication and misunderstanding can result in missed deadlines and budget overruns, which nobody wants. Small cross-functional teams may be able to communicate and adapt quickly to changes, but in order to mitigate these risks, it is essential that all project participants are able to provide input early on and understand both the vision and the constraints (like cost and time).

The discovery phase allows all project stakeholders to come together and develop a shared understanding of the project's objectives. This collaborative vision ensures that the project's end goal remains consistent throughout all phases: to provide business value. The relationships built between project members as a result of this discovery process in software development are a powerful outcome; these relationships bridge the gap between the development team and the client or business development teams.

Discovery Phase Benefits
Enhanced Product Quality
The discovery phase helps the team to get a clear understanding of your product vision and analyse challenges from the technical point of view, which will inevitably translate into a better quality of the final product.

Effective Risk Management
A product discovery phase aids in the prediction and elimination of risks, as well as the identification of the optimal technical solution for achieving business objectives.

Predictable Costs
Our discovery phase service will help you focus on the most important parts of the project and give you a better cost estimate.

More Fruitful Partnership
The project discovery phase allows companies to assess the team they will be working with and make sure the developers understand their business processes.

We assist you through the full product development cycle to build professional software solutions that position your business for the future. We are a software development company internationally providing a one-stop service - from professional advisory, strategy and planning through design, implementation and quality assurance to operation and maintenance.

Below are the steps of Full-Cycle Software Development.

Discovery
Requirement Specification
Our team gathers information about your vision, desired application, and features. It continues with analyses of your business needs and industry-related specific.

Project Evaluation
We keep you updated on the development, collaboration, and communication processes. We allocate the necessary resources, make risk assessments, set project estimations, and assign the required professionals. Understanding all the parts of a project, its scope, and how it will be done helps to make sure it is finished on time and within the budget.

Design
Wireframing and Prototyping
We create a clickable prototype quickly based on the customer’s vision. It reflects the future application, showing the interaction between the screens and how features work. A clickable prototype can be used to collect valuable user feedback. For a product to be successful, adjustments based on user feedback are necessary for the development of new and distinctive user-centric features.

UI/UX Design
RESPONSE UI/UX designers analyse competitors’ products, study potential customers, and produce multiple interface sketches. By testing various ideas, we refine our vision until it reaches its final form. We are enthusiastic about current design trends and making your application elegant and user-friendly.

Architecture Design
We ensure seamless data flow and make the application extensible to support both immediate and long-term business goals. At the core of the architecture, we put capacity to manage performance, reliability, scalability, and usability at any stage of the product lifecycle without the creation of technology debts. 

Implementation
Development
Following best practises, we customise our application development process to meet your specific needs and deliver first-rate, stable software. We schedule consistent, brief product delivery cycles with clearly defined acceptance criteria. We decide the order of development by putting the most important and difficult features at the top of the list.

Testing and QA
We design and implement the optimal testing strategy and provide full-featured testing services to validate the product's readiness for mass distribution.Product testing encompasses all possible user scenarios, which are manually and automatically tested. When the application is delivered, following your final approval, we provide a comprehensive report.

User Acceptance Testing (UAT)
UAT (User Acceptance Testing) is an integral part of any software development project. The objective is to ensure that the software can perform real-world tasks. Users are given access to the solution in a simulated version of the real-world environment so they can make sure the software works as planned and find any bugs before signing off.

Delivery
Deployment
Business agility necessitates more frequent product releases and a substantial decrease in their release intervals. The system may be deployed into a test environment for user feedback collection or released into a production environment. This stage is aimed at preparing the application for assembly and releasing it to the production environment.

Maintenance and Ongoing Enhancements
We provide support and maintenance services through efficient management and expertise. Continuous improvement of the product aligns features with end users' requirements and reduces time to market for new functionalities. Maintenance includes troubleshooting and error tracking, bug fixing, performance monitoring and testing, backups, and regular ongoing product updates.

Agile software development is one of the most effective methods to progress from an idea to a product. Agile development employs sustained planning and focuses on collaboration and incremental progress. As a result, Agile enables us to respond to change rather than be adherent to the plan.

We follow Agile software development at RESPONSE in most of our projects. We have designed our agile development framework to deliver business value by providing stability and flexibility while addressing risk and complexity. Our experienced experts help us accelerate software development without compromising quality.

Our Agile Framework
The majority of our Agile development sprints last two weeks. While individual sprints may vary, the client is able to observe tangible outcomes at the conclusion of each sprint. Throughout the project, there are sprint reviews and continuous communication. At the start of each sprint, we go back to the product backlog to rearrange the tasks and make the sprint backlog. 

The following are critical components of our agile framework:

  • Sprint Planning & Sprint Backlog
  • Biweekly sprints
  • Sprint Demo & Review
  • Sprint Retrospective

We will combine multiple sprints into a release. During every release, we will first roll out the product for UAT (User Acceptance Testing) and then to production.

At RESPONSE, you can gain full support for developing your MVP (Minimum Viable Product).

The MVP is an important step in the software development process that allows you to preview and test the product to make necessary adjustments before releasing the final version with all features. The MVP is very often used for start-ups as a great way to start.

Five essential steps when we develop the MVP:

  • 1) Market research
  • 2) Goal and main user identification
  • 3) Choosing features that are most relevant for the user
  • 4) Develop the MVP
  • 5) Receiving the feedback and analysing results

What is a Minimum Viable Product (MVP)?
A minimum viable product, or MVP, is a product with enough features to attract early-adopter customers and validate a product idea early in the product development cycle In industries like software, the MVP can help the product team get feedback from users as soon as possible so they can iterate and make the product better.

The MVP is a key part of agile development because the Agile method is based on validating and iterating products based on user feedback.

The term MVP is a part of the Lean Start-up methodology that aims to reduce waste, optimise business processes, and make start-ups smarter, not harder.

What Are the Main Benefits of MVP?
The process of building an MVP drives a lot of benefits for companies in the process of software and application development.

Without developing the MVP, you might face a larger initial investment in software development and a higher risk when it comes to releasing your product into the market.

The MVP serves as a trial round that allows you to see your idea in action and make the necessary adjustments to make it more appealing and valuable to the user. If you launch your app with a lot of features, it will be much harder to adjust in the future. 

Due to step-by-step development, the cost of building the MVP is much lower than the final version of a product. Furthermore, when your app starts to bring some profit, you can reinvest it in the development of additional features. 

Finally, building the MVP can also attract investors. With a working product, your chances of attracting funding and interest from VCs (Venture Capitalists) and angel investors will increase.
