Planning & Design
Not to be confused with project planning, software planning & design is a necessary process in building any software solution.
- Organizations engaged in building software solutions must understand and plan those solutions at visionary, theoretical, functional, and technically-detailed levels before initiating development. Otherwise, they risk failing completely, or at best producing mediocre solutions that are difficult to scale and/or maintain.
- Proper planning and design requires the consideration of many technical aspects including the intended compatibility, interoperability, extensibility, and reusability of the final solution.
- Software planning and design should be seen as documenting in detail a solution to a problem.
