AGILE methodology is a methodology which provide continuous iteration of development and testing  the software development lifecycle of the project. Development and testing of the software activities are opposite of waterfall model. There are various agile development methods  like scrum,crystal methodologies,dynamic software development method,feature driven development ,lean software development and extreme programming.

Scrum

Scrum is an agile development method which  focus  on how to manage tasks within a team . Scrum is use for empowering team and working in small team for improve software.
It consists of three roles, and their responsibilities are explained as follows:

  • Scrum Master
    • Master is responsible for setting up the team, sprint meeting and removes obstacles to progress
  • Product owner
    • The Product Owner creates product backlog, prioritizes the backlog and is responsible for the delivery of the functionality at each iteration
  • Scrum Team
    • Team manages its own work and organizes the work to complete the sprint or cycle

Product Backlog

This is a repository where requirements are tracked with details . It should be maintained and prioritized by Product Owner, and it should be distributed to the scrum team. Team can also request for a new requirement addition or modification or deletion

Process flow of Scrum Methodologies:

Process flow of scrum testing is as follows:

  • Each iteration of a scrum is known as Sprint
  • Product backlog is a list where all details are entered to get end product
  • During each Sprint, top items of Product backlog are selected and turned into Sprint backlog
  • Team works on the defined sprint backlog
  • Team checks for the daily work
  • At the end of the sprint, team delivers product functionality

Most of the company follow Agile methodology for mobile application development . We can provide early and ongoing delivery of the software and app modules to our valuable clients with the help of agile methodology. We have found that mobile application development  process becomes more quick, easy and efficient using agile technology. Agile technology provides lightweight development process and value to build applications in short cycles with quality check in every step.

Benefits of agile methodology :

  • Visibility
  • Cost Control
  • Simple design
  • Personalization
  • Ability to adapt to changes
  • Focuses on Business Value
  • Predictable Costs and Schedule
  • Even late changes in requirements are allowed

                  Waterfall Vs  Agile methodology

Waterfall Model

Waterfall development is  not allow much reflection or revision. Once an application is in the testing stage, it is very difficult to go back and change something that was not well-documented or thought upon in the concept stage.

      The major disadvantages of the Waterfall Model are as follows
  • No working software is produced until late during the life cycle.
  • High amounts of risk and uncertainty.
  • Not a good model for complex and object-oriented projects.
  • Poor model for long and ongoing projects.
  • Not suitable for the projects where requirements are at a moderate to high risk of changing. So, risk and uncertainty is high with this process model.
  • It is difficult to measure progress within stages.
  • Cannot accommodate changing requirements.
  • Adjusting scope during the life cycle can end a project.

Agile Methology

       The major disadvantages of the Waterfall Model are as follows
  • Rapid, continuous delivery of useful software is satisfied the customers.
  • People and interactions are emphasized rather than process and tools. Customers, developers and testers constantly interact with each other.
  • Working software is delivered frequently (weeks rather than months).
  • Face-to-face conversation is the best form of communication.
  • Close, daily cooperation between business people and developers.
  • Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design.
  • Regular adaptation to changing circumstances.
  • Even late changes in requirements are welcomed.

Agile methodology execution

Step1 :  First Team will analysis requirement.
Step 2 : Designers will Design Application.
Step 3 : Developers will Build Application.
Step4 :  QA team will ensures excellent Quality for the application.
Step5 : We will take the feedback from our client if modifications or issues are there then
process will be continue
Step6 : If there is no any issues then successful Mobile Application will be delivered to the client.

Conclusion:

If you want to be agile, the first tenet is “Every project needs a slightly different set of
policies and      conventions, or    methodology.” People’s attitude toward communication, user
involvement, and frequent releases is more important than the specific process you use.

Introduction:

The trends in iOS app development keep on changing year after year. It does create a major impact on the business of organization. Here are trends to follow in 2018 that each and every iPhone app development company needs to follow:

Apple HomeKit

HomeKit is basically Apple’s framework for home automation.Apple HomeKit provides to communicate as well as control connected devices and accessories in home using app.HomeKit framework allows users to configure accessories and create actions to control devices. User will create group and actions and trigger them using Siri app. Users can tell Siri to turn on the lights in the living room or open the garage door.Most of the companies are creating smart home product that will collaborate together in a secure and user-friendly manner.

HomeKit’s pairing process allows the use of iPads and Apple TVs as HomeKit hubs within the home. For instance, products that work on Apple’s HomeKit will get a major overhaul with the launch of Apple’s HomePod Smart speaker.

To use Home app, you need at least one iOS device with Home app installed.

Apple Pay is a digital online mobile wallet makes it easy for iOS users to make payments. it supports all the iOS devices including iPhone, iPad, iOS watches and mac laptops. Apple Pay is now supported at 50 percent of stores in U.S . It is now one of the world’s most accepted contactless payment technology.

The iOS developers can easily implement Apple Pay in their application.The service keeps customer payment information private from the retailer by replacing the customer’s credit or debit card.

Cloud-based Applications

iOS app developers are designing cloud driven mobile applications. With the growing demand for cloud technology, it is becoming effortless to get data without impacting internal phone memory. With cloud-based apps like Dropbox, Google Drive, various mobile apps are going to be cloud driven in the near future. Cloud based apps resolve the problem related to data security problems consistent in BYOD world (Bring Your Own Device).

There is perennial problem related to protecting sensitive data with regards to employee devices, which are not completely safe and secure. With Cloud, companies can be assured that data is safe and secure.

Advancement in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Siri

Apple’s personal assistant Siri has gained prominence worldwide, bringing about a major change in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and contextual learning as Siri understands what people are searching and speaking.

IoT-Focused Apps Will Come to the Forefront

IoT is the buzz word and it is gaining prominence with each passing day. Investment, revenues and profits from IoT is growing at an exponential rate. iOS app developers are already building applications that can communicate with Internet-enabled devices.

As IoT companies continue to provide robust and sophisticated products in the market, iOS app developers will aspire to create value-adding apps that will help users get the most out of their IoT products.

Recognition of digital signals from the sensors deployed in IoT devices and secure exchange of information over Wi-Fi networks will be the areas of focus for iOS developers for 2018 and beyond.

Core Machine Learning

Core Machine Learning is one of the most widely discussed trends in iOS app development. It is a machine learning framework launched by Apple and has been proving effective for tasks related to Camera, QuickType or Siri.

With its robust library, the Core ML will offer communication applicable to all iOS devices. Moreover, it will also be useful in face detection understanding the language and developing the AI-based games. The developers will be able to build highly interactive apps.

Augmented Reality (AR) and ArKit

iOS app developers will be able to develop 3D and virtual reality-based mobile application with AR. In fact, ARKit will also receive ample support from Amazon’s Sumerian application platform. And ever since Amazon has collaborated with Apple’s ARKit, several businesses are exploring the same option. Thus, the present year 2018 will be fruitful for the AR and VR apps.
