SECURE COAT® BELIEVE IN SERVING, RATHER THAN EARNING

Solutions & Services

Secure Coat® provides Software development for three most common purposes which are to meet specific needs of a specific client/business, to meet a professed need of some set of potential users (the case with commercial and open source software), or for personal use (e.g. a doctor may write software to automate a routine task).
We offer software developments which include research, new development, modification, reuse, re-engineering, maintenance, or any other activities that result in software products.

We focus combination of the following stages of software development:

  • Market research
  • Gathering requirements for the proposed business solution
  • Analyzing the problem
  • Devising a plan or design for the software-based solution
  • Implementation (coding) of the software
  • Testing the software
  • Deployment
  • Maintenance and bug fixing

These stages are often referred to collectively as the software development lifecycle, or SDLC. Different approaches to software development may carry out these stages in different orders, or devote more or less time to different stages. The level of detail of the documentation produced at each stage of software development may also vary. These stages may also be carried out in turn (a “waterfall” based approach), or they may be repeated over various cycles or iterations (a more "extreme" approach). The more extreme approach usually involves less time spent on planning and documentation, and more time spent on coding and development of automated tests. More “extreme” approaches also promote continuous testing throughout the development lifecycle, as well as having a working (or bug-free) product at all times. More structured or “waterfall” based approaches attempt to assess the majority of risks and develop a detailed plan for the software before implementation (coding) begins, and avoid significant design changes and re-coding in later stages of the software development lifecycle.
The best approach to solving a problem using software will often depend on the type of problem. If the problem is well understood and a solution can be effectively planned out ahead of time, the more "waterfall" based approach may work the best. If, on the other hand, the problem is unique (at least to the development team) and the structure of the software solution cannot be easily envisioned, then a more "extreme" incremental approach may work best. A software development process is a structure imposed on the development of a software product.

Software development methodology

Secure Coat® uses software development methodology framework which is structure, plan, and control the process of developing information systems. A wide variety of such frameworks have evolved over the years, each with its own recognized strengths and weaknesses. One system development methodology is not necessarily suitable for use by all projects. Each of the available methodologies is best suited to specific kinds of projects, based on various technical, organizational, project and team considerations.

Recent trends in the sector

Given the rapid growth of this sector, several companies have started to use offshore development in China and other countries with a lower cost per developer model. Several new Web 2.0 platforms and sites are now developed offshore while management is located in Western countries. The advantages mostly revolve around better cost-control over the process, which means that there is lower cash-outflow (often the biggest struggle for startups). Furthermore, the time difference when working with China for the Western world allows work to be done round the clock adding a competitive advantage, notable firms that are involved in development.

Marketing

The sources of ideas for software products are multitude. These ideas can come from market research including the demographics of potential new customers, existing customers, sales prospects who rejected the product, other internal software development staff, or a creative third party. Ideas for software products are usually first evaluated by marketing personnel for economic feasibility, for fit with existing channels distribution, for possible effects on existing product lines, required features, and for fit with the company's marketing objectives.
