Xoriant Mobile App Development Lifecycle

Xoriant follows a phased approach, Mobile Software Product Engineering Engagement and Design(M-SPEED) while developing an application for mobile considering all the aspects of mobile product engineering. Diagram below, shows Xoriant mobile application development lifecycle.

 

Mobile application development cycle

 

1. Ideation

Some of the key considerations while ideating the application for converting a concept into an Interactive application includes:

  • Requirement Analysis and Product Brief
  • Ideate the application vision
  • Analysis of Business Drivers
  • Finalize the Feature and Functionalities
  • Identify Use Case/business scenarios
  • Identify the user base
2. UX Design

Once the application/product is ideated, the team starts working on the UX elements by best practices some of which some activities are listed below:

  • Create use case scenarios based on user stories
  • Develop architecture level based user models, wireframes and task flow diagrams
  • Design/Plot Application Sequence
  • Feedback
3. Architecture
Mobile application development Architecture

 

Some of the best practices kept into consideration while designing mobile app architecture are:

  • Enterprise Mobile App or Consumer Mobile Apps oriented
  • Selection Parameters for Native v/s Mobile Web
  • Mobile Frameworks For Multiple Platforms
  • Design for cross-platforms

6. Application Testing
  • Handset software testing, mobile game testing on global carriers with real and pre-launch devices
  • Testing services include: Compatibility, Interoperability, Functionality, Usability, Performance, L10N and I18N testing, Communication testing and Data exchange and synchronization testing
  • Reusable automation script for testing across different variants of the Mobile devices
  • Community Previews is one of the practices Xoriant follows in testing area
7. Publishing to marketplace

Once the application is prepared, it’s time to release the same for users in the respective marketplace.

  • Xoriant follows platform specific processes to ensure fast publishing of the application
  • Xoriant has experience in successfully publishing applications to various marketplaces and has created checklists ensuring
