How RAD benefits you
We don’t believe any other company adopts our approach to fusing traditional and new development methods. By choosing DCSL for your software solutions, you’ll not only get quality software; thanks to our RAD approach, you’ll also get:
- Quicker development times – we automate the coding of standard application functions like adding and viewing records, viewing lists of records, searching, and filtering and all general database interaction. This drastically reduces the time needed to build the application, resulting in earlier delivery.
- Lower costs – dispensing of the need to write basic code means you pay for less development time, therefore significantly reducing the overall cost of the project.
- Uncompromised planning – just because we’re developing at speed, doesn’t mean we take short-cuts. We are careful to retain our personal touch and fastidious approach to planning. We combine our approach to prototyping with rapid application development tools to deliver a carefully crafted, complete blueprint for your new system or application.
- Standardised coding that eliminates bugs – our automation tools use a standard process to create foundation code. This consistency eliminates bugs and makes it easier for the code to be supported long-term.
Rapid application development is still in use today and some companies offer products that provide some or all of the tools for RAD software development. (The concept can be applied to hardware development as well.) These products include requirements gathering tools, prototyping tools, computer-aided software engineering tools, language development environments such as those for the Java platform, groupware for communication among development members, and testing tools.
