Rapid Application Development Outsourcing
Rapid Application Development Outsourcing is a programming system that helps software programmers to quickly build working programs. There are different kinds of tools that can be used for the process. The two most popular Application development systems for windows are Basic Visual and Delphi.
Rapid Application Development Outsourcing was actually in response to the non-agile processes like the waterfall model. It developed way back in the 1970's. The main problem with the previous methodologies was that the applications took a very long to build. And with things changing every minute, by the time the application was ready it was outdated often resulting in unusable systems. Following the ideas of Barry Boehm and Scott Shultz, Rapid Application Development is a software process which was developed initially by James Martin in the 1980's. The methodology involves iterative development, the construction of prototypes, and the use of computer-aided software engineering (CASE) tools. Traditionally the rapid application development approach involves compromises in usability, features, and/or execution speed.
Most software applications perform three major functions a user interface to capture data, Logic to validate the captured data, a database to store the validated data. The in depth process of these development steps varies from project to project.
The benefits of Rapid Application Development include increased speed of development through methods including rapid prototyping, virtualization of system related routines, the use of case tools, and other techniques, increased end-user utility, larger emphasis on simplicity and usability of GUI design.
As mentioned above, there are a number of different tools that can be used to increase the speed of the process. These include Cross-platform rapid application development tools, desktop rapid application development tools, database rapid application tools, data embedded rapid application tools, web based rapid development tools, component based rapid application development paradigm.
If we talk in technical terms, the application process can be completed in very little time phrase by following 8 simple steps. Top Level Application Description, Review your Description, Low Level Application Description, Code and test application framework, program application component, test application component, repeat steps 5 & 6 for each application component and finally test full application.
