An application is, of course, a crucial asset for the competitive existence of a business in the present times. If you want to launch your application quickly, then Rapid Application Development methodology is very much a relevant subject for you. Rapid Application Development (RAD) model focuses on developing an application as a modifiable and reusable prototype, shortening the time-to-market considerably. The 5 Essential Stages of a RAD Model

Slide 3

Rapid Application Development (RAD) involves the production of a complete application in the form of prototypes. Each prototype actually serves as a basic version of the final product that is to be developed. Depending upon the complexity of the application, there can be a single prototype representing the final product or a number of prototypes representing various modules of the required application. The prototypes are built especially in such a way that they can be easily modified and reused as required. Each component of the application is built as a standalone prototype so that various modules of the application can be developed parallel. This breaking-down of a whole application in smaller components expedites development, testing, and modification. The RAD Model

Business Modelling: In this stage of RAD, all sorts of relevant information is collected through all relevant channels. The obtained information helps in determining how it is used, when is it processed, and what makes it a potential success factor for your business. Data Modeling: The data modeling stage involves a thorough analysis of the data collected and collated in the business modeling stage. The information is categorized into various groups so that you can easily use them as and when required. Each group is carefully named in accordance with the type of data is categorized in it. This stage also concerns establishing the relationship between the groups and its usefulness defined in the previous stage. Process Modeling: Process Modelling is the stage where the scope of change and optimization can be defined, and the data sets are further refined accordingly. The criteria for addition, removal, and modification of data objects are also created at this stage. Stages of a RAD Model

Development: As the name indicates, this is the stage where the purpose of the previous three stages is realized. The coding is done in this step, and a system defined to be adopted for building the prototype. Testing: All the prototypes are tested and validated individually. Testing each module, therefore, takes less time in comparison to the traditional testing process. Once all the modules fully pass the testing phase, they can be integrated into a single application as intended in the requirement specification.

Slide 6

No drastic change to the existing infrastructure and resource-pool in order to implement this model is required. This development methodology is applicable to all such application that can be broken down into smaller units that tend to have mostly independent functionality. Implementing RAD model has become extremely easy today with the innovation of rapid application development platforms (RADP). There are a number of options available in the market for you to choose from. HokuApps’ low-code RADP is an example of the same. The ultimate beneficiary is you as these RADPs facilitate a seamless transition to the rapid application model. Options and Opportunities
