How to get started with custom software

Getting started with developing a custom software solution for your business can be daunting. There are many moving parts to consider, as well as time and budget constraints. However, with the right software development methodology and the right business partner to guide you through the process, you can reap the benefits of having a bespoke, purpose-built solution without having to be a tech expert yourself.

The importance of business analysis

The first step in developing custom software is to clearly establish what your needs are and how the software could potentially fulfil them. A business analyst plays a pivotal role here, working with your business to determine your requirements, and with the developers to ensure the software will meet those requirements. 

Business analysis is a structured and disciplined approach to introducing change in an organisation. By analysing your business in this manner, you ensure that all processes are considered and all scenarios are accounted for. The process also ensures that time and money are not wasted on software that does not do what you expect or need it to do.

When you hire Netgen to develop your custom software, one of our trained business analysts will assist you in fleshing out the project, determining all of your needs, and making sure the proposed solution covers them. Our team has years of experience working with a variety of businesses of different sizes, so they know what to look out for during the analysis phase.

What comes next?

Once the analysis is complete, our business analyst works with our developers and project planner to come up with a project plan. The plan will include methods and processes that will be used, as well as the timeline for the project. From there, our experienced team will handle everything from the development of the new software, through to testing, integration into your current systems, and training your staff on its use.
