The Stages of the Agile Software Development Life Cycle Explained

Tech companies are striving to remain relevant in a swiftly changing industry and hence software development companies in Dubai are in need of a way to deliver their products in a short time frame. The agile software development methodology was devised considering the requirement to rapidly develop and deploy software.

The following are the stages involved in the agile software development life cycle (SDLC).  

1. Define The Scope And Priority Of The Projects

In this step of the agile software development life cycle, the team defines the scope and priority of the projects. According to the size of the agile software development company, the team would be handling multiple projects simultaneously.

For each project, the business opportunity and the time required for completion should be determined.  Based on this assessment, the technical and financial feasibility can be estimated and the project worth pursuing can be decided.

2. Determine The Requirements For The Initial Sprint

Once the project is identified, the requirements can be chalked out by working with the stakeholders. Flow charts and UML diagrams to express how any new feature should function and how it can be adapted into the existing system.

3. Work Flow Template

The next step would involve selecting the team members to work on the project and allocate the required resources. It would be advisable to use a Kanban like chart to outline the responsibilities and indicate the time line for each project phase and the duration of each sprint.

4. Sprint Iteration

Once the requirement and resources for the initial sprint is defines, the first project iteration phase begins. In agile development the project is subjected to 

Multiple rounds of revisions, so the first project iteration will only include the basic functionality. The product expansion is done during the subsequent sprints.

5. Product Release 

The software iteration should be released with the following steps

  • Software testing: The software testing team in Dubai should test for functionality and detect bugs.
  • System software documentation
  • Release the software iteration

6. Continuing Support For Software Release 

This phase involves continued support even after software release. It means the team should keep the system working and demonstrate to the users the user procedure.
