Our Process

Requirement Analysis

The most important task in creating any software product is gathering the requirements. Customers typically have an abstract idea of what they want as an end result, but not a clear path to get there. Complete, clear, and concise requirements will be shaped by skilled and experienced software engineers at this point. We will frequently demonstrate live code to help reduce the risk of gathering incorrect or incomplete requirements.

Upon completing the general requirements gathering process with the client, an analysis of the scope of the development will be determined and clearly defined in a scope document. This helps us to avoid any ambiguity and provides a clear definition of the product that we provide to our client.

Specification

We precisely describe the software to be written, possibly in a rigorous way. This step can be seen as fine tuning the requirements that were created before. It provides more detailed documentation of the system design. This step is important because it can prevent most of the communication problems that are sometimes encountered during the software development process.

Architecture

We will create an abstract representation of the software system or an “architecture”. Our architecture is concerned with making sure the software system will meet the requirements of the client, as well as ensuring that future requirements can be addressed. The architecture step also allows us to address any interfaces between the software product that we are designing and other software products that it may interact with, as well as the underlying hardware or the host operating system. This step is a great way to visualize your new system and to forecast any unforeseen issues.

Design, Development and Testing

At this point, the fun begins. We begin to build your software product. We take the specification derived in the earlier process as a road map. If the previous steps are performed with precision, the end result should be what the client expects.

After development we move into the software testing phase. Software testing is an integral and important part of the software development process. This part of the process ensures that bugs or software errors are recognized as early as possible. If any bugs are encountered, they will be eliminated and the testing process will be repeated until a clean product is created. Throughout the development process, we document the internal design of our software. This documentation is done for the purpose of future maintenance and enhancement.

Deployment and maintenance

After we have finished your software product development and testing, the deployment process begins. This is the point where we release the software to you. We will either move it into your production environment or deploy it to a hosting service. We also provide software training and support, because it doesn't matter how much time and planning our development team puts into creating software if nobody in your organization ends up using it. People are often resistant to change and avoid venturing into an unfamiliar area, so we feel that as a part of the deployment phase, it is very important to have training classes for new users of our software. At Nikkio, we stand by our software and provide ongoing support for all of our products. We can even provide support for your existing systems.
