Solwit Level Up: How do I avoid paying twice for app development?

Posted: 2023-11-06

There have been heaps of discussions and articles on application development, and the process seems to be pretty straightforward. Once you define the goals and business needs, programmers can code, testers can test, and you’re ready to go. Sadly, it isn’t always rainbows and roses – the road to software development is often paved with many bumps and turns, as reality bears witness to. In our last Solwit Level UP meeting (recording is below), we covered these thoroughly.

Whether you are planning to build custom software, a web or mobile application, or you’ve been through the process and want to learn how to do it better the next time around, you’ve come to the right place.

By watching the recording, you will know the answers to the questions answered by Piotr Miętkiewicz, IT Business Analyst at Solwit:

  1. How does a typical application development process work? What are the key steps in this process? 
  2. What are the most critical decisions to be made at the beginning of application development?
  3. How to minimize risks in an IT project
  4. Why do more than half of IT projects fail?
  5. How do you define business analysis in IT?
  6. What steps should be taken to ensure reliable business analysis in IT projects?
  7. What tools and techniques are most effective for business analyses?
  8. What are the benefits of business analysis in IT projects?
  9. What are the costs of business analysis, and how do they affect the overall project?

Above all – how to avoid double costs and enhance application development efficiency – what to look out for so that minor changes do not turn into a complete rewrite of the application from scratch.
