Rapid Application Development Software Can Make Your Business Better

present business landscape demanding agile

Present Business Landscape Demanding Agile Systems and Applications

  • Conventional methods of software development like SDLC (System Development Life Cycle) had stable requirements and the development progress was often measurable. However, such processes were time-consuming and had the very little scope of user interaction.
  • In a hyper-competitive environment where businesses are demanding the quick release of software applications and prototypes, developers can’t help but reduce application development time while accelerating progress.
  • Rapid Application Development (RAD) which rose to prominence a couple of decades ago, has successfully responded to the enterprise clarion call by delivering high-end applications with reduced time-to-market.

Embracing Leaner and Agile Processes with Rapid Application Development

  • The Rapid Application Development (RAD) model allows rapid application development and prototyping which ensures quick and error-free product delivery.
  • Compared to other new age agile software development method, RAD stresses on rapid prototyping in order to eradicate even the smallest of the issues.
  • Unlike the conventional waterfall model which was essentially based on requirements recording and planning, this model enables iterative development by taking user feedback into account.

Process Segmentation – Phases of the RAD Model

Defining the Business Objectives

In this phase, the designers, developers, and testers identify the potential opportunities and outcomes of a project, along with the estimated timeline.

Analyzing Data Sets

The next phase involves a close analysis and review of the core data assets in relation to the fundamental business objectives.

Building the Prototypes

After finalizing the project requirements, opportunities, timeline, and budget, the developer starts creating the functional models of an application which are the prototypes.

evaluating user feedback in this phase the users

Evaluating User Feedback

In this phase, the users provide valuable feedback to the developers who then analyzes the same to tweak and enhance the prototypes, developing the best possible final product.


In this phase, a completed software application is operated under different scenarios in order to make sure that all the components work in tandem to accomplish the systems end objective.

rad the differentiating factors

RAD – The Differentiating Factors

Reduced Time-to-Market

A RAD software application enables a developer to segregate a project into several modules. Every module is treated as a single prototype which undergoes a separate phase of testing. This systematic approach which keeps testing at the heart of development significantly reduces the application delivery time

Effective Market Analysis

In this method, every completed prototype can be evaluated by the end-user. Thus, it becomes convenient for the developer to closely analyze the prospect for further enhancements and suggestions.

Easy System Integration

RAD software development fosters easy system integration by helping developers assimilate all the modules during the early phases of development.

reusability of application components rad ensures

Reusability of Application Components

RAD ensures easy reusability of application components with rapid prototyping and modularity.

User Feedback-Oriented

With RAD software development, the developers have the added advantage of analyzing user needs and sentiments while implementing successive iterations within the application.
