The software development lifecycle (SDLC) provides a framework for planning, designing and implementing software systems. The primary goal of the software development lifecycle is delivering software systems that enable a business service that meets functional requirements, operates reliably within the current and planned IT infrastructure, can be effectively maintained and affords the flexibility to adapt the system as business requirements evolve. Synapsis assists clients in navigating the software development lifecycle, including developing feasibility studies, planning and resource estimation, definition of functional and technical requirements, validating system functionality, developing testing strategies and designing quality assurance plans.
