7 Steps in Mobile App Development Process
The Mobile App Development Process might look like a piece of cake but in reality, there is much more to it. Archisys brings 7 essential steps in Mobile Development process. These steps are as follows:
The first and foremost thing we do as an enterprise mobility solution company is that as soon as you approach we start analyzing your business. In order to develop a good app, we listen to every detail about your project. We utilize the opportunity by learning about your business and discover areas that can be addressed effectively. On the other side, by booking a consultation as a customer you can get much information about the company. This consultancy is helpful to us and to the customers.
2. App Design:
The second stage in the development process is the creative stage where app developers pour in their creativity. The mobile app has ample space to exhibit the creativity of developers. Areas such as navigation, theme, features etc can easily be done in the mobile apps. Besides that app design also includes customization, so that you design the app according to your feel and look. Remember it is always easy to make changes while the app is still in the prototype stage.
3. App Development:
After getting the feel and look of the app design now its time to get on to the technical stage which is app development. At the development stage, programmers write the necessary coding. While Android app developers use Java, iOS, app developers use Objective-C to develop a mobile application. It is also possible to make the app work on different platforms by developing the app in HTML5. However, the platform of the app should be decided during the consulting stage.
4. App Testing:
Alpha testing is conducted in-house with the help of tech-savvy developers and testers. Once they find all of the features and functionalities working properly, then Beta testing will be conducted with the help of select users. All reports will be gathered and bugs fixed at this stage. Beta testing is highly important because the actual users will be participating in the tests and will be providing you with a plethora of ideas to improve the user experience.
5. App integration:
Once the app is completed, it has to be integrated with the central system in place. The app developers will either create an entire mobile enterprise application platform or use a compatible middleware to integrate the app with an existing legacy system.
6. App deployment:
Once the app development is complete, the app developers will deploy the app in the business environment. Since it is a serious job, developers always do a pilot before actually deploying the app in the business environment. Any flaws detected can be quickly rectified at this stage.
It is also the duty of the mobile app developers to train your employees on app usage. Although there are mobile device management tools that could allow you to keep a vigilant eye on the users, training them for proper use of the app is absolutely necessary. These are some of the steps involved in enterprise mobile app development.
