Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a framework that defines the tasks performed at each step in the software development process. It is a structure followed by a development team within the software organization. It consists of a detailed plan and describes how to design, develop, maintain, support, and replace specific software. It defines a methodology for improving the quality of software and the overall development process.
Some methodologies provide the necessary framework to guide the challenging and complex process with an aim to avoid costly mistakes and expedite development, all of which have the same goal of moving physical or software-based systems through phases. The term “project” implies that there is a beginning and an end to the cycle and the methods inherent in a systems development life cycle strategy provide clear, distinct, and defined phases of work in the elements of planning, designing, testing, deploying, and maintaining information systems. SDLC consists of the following activities:
Requirement Gathering & Analysis: Requirement gathering and analysis are usually done by highly skilled experts in the organization. After the requirements are gathered from the client, a scope document is created in which the scope of the project is determined and documented.
Designing: The entire business processes are put on the table for designing an application that are grouped on basis of functionality, processes, reports and data.
Development: All business processes, business concepts, business logics and various customised reports are implemented through coding and integrated to make a complete workflow of the new application. API will be included if needed in the application.
Testing & QA: This is the process of finding defects or bugs in the software developed. The modules developed by project team are now moving through testing phases by functional testing, System testing, database testing, etc, and validation on user data and security password.
Customisation: All data required for business processes are loaded and configured, setting up all default values and database, default security, customised report formats are set up.
Deployment: After client approval, the new application software is deployed at place where the business users can continue their works using through new application.
Maintenance & Support: The newly developed business application would be under observation for improvements, analysis, updating and solving issues. etc periodically.
An application (APP) that refers to a software which is developed with a purpose or towards automation of business processes. It accepts various set of data for computing and gives the results accurately which are stored in the database and maintained for future use.

Now, all processes, modules, various customised reports are developed / implemented with proper coding, and then they are integrated to connect with database as per functional specification. After that testing and QA process are done. Finally, after completion of evaluation process, new application is deployed at place with error-free and user-friendly.
