Design

The design phase of software development deals with transforming the customer requirements to a form implementable using a programming language. We at Confidos create a Software Technical Design there are several vital components you should include.

Architectural Design: Architectural Design is the specification of the major components of a system, their responsibilities, properties, interfaces, and the relationships and interactions between them. In architectural design, the overall structure of the system is chosen, but the internal details of major components are ignored.

Interface Design: Interface design is the specification of the interaction between a system and its environment. This phase proceeds at a high level of abstraction with respect to the inner workings of the system i.e., during interface design, the internal of the systems are completely ignored and the system is treated as a black box. 

Detailed Design: Design is the specification of the internal elements of all major system components, their properties, relationships, processing, and often their algorithms and data structures.


Development

The software development process is an iterative logical process that aims to create programmed software to meet unique business or personal objectives, goals, or processes. The objective is achieved by a software developer writing computer code. The Software Development Approaches how the various tasks related to software development can be organized. Typical approaches or paradigms encountered in DoD software development include waterfall, incremental, and spiral.

Implementation: Implementation is part of the process where software engineers program the code for the project.

Several software development methodologies are available for efficient project management like Agile, Waterfall, Scrum, Kanban, and others.

At Confidos the software development process is categorized into:

Backend Development

Frontend Development

Testing

Software testing can be stated as the process of verifying and validating whether a software or application is bug-free, meets the technical requirements as guided by its design and development, and meets the user requirements effectively and efficiently by handling all the exceptional and boundary cases. 

The process of software testing aims not only at finding faults in the existing software but also at finding measures to improve the software in terms of efficiency, accuracy, and usability. It mainly aims at measuring the specification, functionality, and performance of a software program or application. 


Recruitment

Discovering and attracting excellent employees is never simple. And tech recruitment, especially, represents a challenging task. Recruiting tech talent comes with multiple hurdles for HR specialists and recruiters.

If you aspire to draw the best software engineers and other tech professionals out there, first, you have to look for them in the right places. Secondly, tech recruitment requires a captivating approach and presenting candidates with an accurate portrayal of your company culture.

Determining the most valuable channels and commencing to create a connection with potential candidates is only the beginning of the recruitment process These are some of the fundamental steps toward building an efficient tech recruitment strategy.

Migration

Migrations are one of the most overlooked topics in software engineering, especially at high-growth startups and companies. As a company’s operations grow, new systems and approaches are adopted to cope with extra load, more use cases, or more constraints. From time to time, engineers need to migrate over from an old system or approach, to a new one.

Many companies are performing data migration to the cloud too. On-premise databases and other traditional data storage options can be rather costly to maintain, especially when compared to cloud storage. Cloud storage typically features an autoscaling feature, meaning that resources are allocated and re-allocated as demand rises or falls. This means you pay for the actual storage space that’s utilized instead of paying for a “block” of storage space that may or may not be used in full.


Cloud Solutions

Cloud solutions to the services and technologies provided through cloud computing, which involves delivering computing resources such as servers, storage, databases, software, and more, over the internet. These solutions enable users and businesses to leverage the power of remote servers and infrastructure, instead of relying solely on their local hardware and software.

Common types of cloud solutions include:

  1. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): Provides virtualized computing resources such as virtual machines, storage, and networks on-demand, allowing users to build and manage their own infrastructure.

  2. Platform as a Service (PaaS): Offers a development platform with tools, libraries, and frameworks for building, testing, and deploying applications. Users can focus on application development without worrying about infrastructure management.

  3. Software as a Service (SaaS): Delivers complete software applications over the internet on a subscription basis. Users can access and use the software through a web browser without the need for installation or maintenance.

  4. Database as a Service (DBaaS): Provides managed database services, allowing users to store, manage, and scale their databases in the cloud. It eliminates the need for database administration tasks, such as hardware provisioning and software patching.
