Discovery Phase Services of a Software Project Development

Project discovery will serve as the foundation for the entire software development project. The main goal here is to collect information about the project to identify the vision, goals, and scope.

Discovery Phase of Software Project Development

All great products start as ideas that have to be nurtured and guided through the planning and development stages to ensure their viability in the intended niche segment. This is where the project discovery phase can prove to be a valuable investment since it can layout the scope of the project and make sure your product has the necessary features and requirements to be commercially successful. Skywell Software can manage the entire discovery phase process for you to establish a clear roadmap for the whole project and mitigate potential risks that may appear along the way. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits Skywell Software provides its clients during the discovery phase and how we go about this process.

Benefits of project discovery phase

System Requirements Specification

System Requirements Specification

This will describe the project in great detail and outline the goals, features, and technology stack we suggest to create the product exactly the way you imagined it. It is essential that you carefully examine these specifications and offer any corrections before approving it. 

Preliminary UX prototype

Preliminary UX prototype

Before any development process begins, we will show you what the digital interface will look like and its main features. Combined with the system requirements specifications mentioned above, the entire picture will become more focused, and you will understand the look and feel of your product after completion. 

MVP plans and estimates

MVP plans and estimates

During this process, we will tell you how your development team needs to be assembled, i.e., how many front-end developers, back-end developers, etc. You will also get an accurate estimate of the development timeline and budget. Keep in mind that it is highly unlikely that these estimates will change throughout development process and conflict with your business goals.

1) Research

The first step would be to collect all of the necessary information by speaking with team members from all necessary departments. They share with us all of the information available about the project, and our team of analysts conducts all of the needed research on this topic. They will also prepare a list of points that require further clarification or any crucial facts that are missing.

2) Presentation

After all of the information has been assembled, you will have an introductory call with the business owner, where we will present all of the findings. Other technical professionals will also be on this call to discuss your project and clarify anything that you do not understand. The call will be guided by our most experienced specialist in the field relevant to your request, who will be able to answer any questions you have. If you do not have some of the needed information at the time of the call, do not worry since you will always have time to collect it afterward. 

3) Priorities

We will determine critical elements of the project and which development work will take precedence over others. By implementing the highest priority requirements first, we will be able to create a product that is both high-quality and high-value. 

4) Estimation

We will then combine all of the information from the previous steps and start working on providing you with an estimate. It is important to note that any estimates we give you will come with explanations and suggestions on the most efficient ways to move forward in your case. We will also clarify and substantiate the numbers you see in the estimation. This will be followed by another call involving our professional technical team to estimate with you to make sure everything is clear.

5) Tech Stack

The technological stack will be based on the apps needed functionality, business requirements, and costs required for the development. Innovative projects require a more detailed approach, and our experienced professionals will guide you through this important process to make sure that the end-product fully meets your needs.

6) Design

We will provide you with a representation of what the digital experience will be like for the user and the key features that will be included. This way, you will have a clear idea of how the product will look and feel when it is finished.

Entrust Us Your Project Discovery Phase

Skywell Software has extensive experience providing clients with all of the services involved in the discovery phase. All of the experience that we collected has brought us valuable industry insights that will be hard to find at other companies. We will apply all of this knowledge when going through all of the discovery phase steps mentioned above.

Why You Should Pay for a Project Estimation

  • Skywell Software provides a free estimate for small and understandable projects, but if your project is fairly complex, there will always be many ways to go about them. That is why you need to receive input from experienced professionals who have successful track records of actualizing such projects. While such experts’ time is costly, it can end up saving you a lot of money in the long run.

     

    That is why if you want your project to be deeply analyzed from different points of view and get an estimation based on actual analyses and not on some wild guesses, you have to be prepared to invest in it. Going through this process in the beginning will save you a lot of time and effort later. Also, taking into account the complexity of the project, we can right away assume that the cost of the discovery phase we suggest is just a tiny part of the funds that have to be allocated to make the project happen.
