The software product developers’ keep this in mind that their product should fulfill certain criteria’s such as the quality of the product they are making, it’s pricing after completion, very importantly its accuracy, reliability and performance. In addition to these, client also wants to know what all services and facilities they will be providing along with the product. Its maintenance and upgrading norms and much more. Each and every client or a company seeking for a software product, keep this in mind that the company from where they are purchasing a product is reputed.
They do a detail study of the company’s past performance and history of the products made available by it. Thus companies and individual developers face tough competition to sell their product and earn. Thus they have to keep all these points in mind while developing a software product.
Hence, when developers start developing a high-quality software system, the first step they should keep in mind is a clear and precise specification of quality. But even after successful completion of the software product, it is for sure that it will become obsolete over time and will be of less use. So the only solution is continuous product quality control: the steady and explicit evaluation of a product’s properties with respect to its updated quality goals. Thus, setting up and running continuous quality control in your environment is very essential.
Along with the quality check, the finished software product depending upon its specification must not be too costly for the client to buy. If it is so, then he could eventually shift to some other software product provider. Thus maintaining the quality and price both plays crucial role. Thus proper planning and management of the entire development process is necessary. Otherwise developers will not be able to maintain quality and price of the product they are working on and this will make then accrue huge financial loses.
But what if we talk of a product which is costly but is very accurate and reliable. The performance effects the pricing of a product. A better performing software product will no doubt be costly than the product with lesser efficiency. Thus, the aim should be to build a product which is accurate and reliable.
Other factors along with the above stated one which drives the software product achievement are maintenance and upgrading facility and company’s background. The better and more facility a company will provide to its customer, the more it will attract the clients and make profit.
Make Software Products as such that people pay you for it before they’re built. Thus if you wish to build a successful software, then create an insanely great product. A product which attracts clients and fulfill their need to accomplish the most tedious task they have. Come up with an idea that’s entirely new in the market, implement it and earn.
