Software deployment is very close to the end of the software development life cycle. After the software product has been studied, planned, designed, developed, and tested, you need to make it available for the market. This is where our software deployment services come into play.
Software deployment consists of installing, configuring, testing, and optimizing the performance of your software product.
Requesting software development services can be compared to buying a table. Software deployment is the process of delivering this table to your house and assembling it. In the case of the table, you might be able to deal with it yourself. Yet, a software product, should it be a web platform or a mobile app, is a much more complicated system to handle. Professional software deployment services help to make sure that the product is installed properly and securely.
How to Deploy a Web App
At first, the software product is deployed to the development environment. Here, software engineers can run and test the functionality. Then, the web app is deployed to the staging environment, which is also referred to as preproduction. Here, the product closely resembles the final version but is more economical in terms of resource usage and can be shown to test users. As soon as the product is tested, optimized, and ready to be launched, it is deployed to the production environment. Here, it will use real-life data and will be accessible to the target audience. If the software deployment procedure is thoroughly followed, the entire website will not go down, the users will not face any errors, and will not lose any customers.
How to Deploy a Mobile App?
After a mobile app is developed, it is deployed to the testing environment, for iOS and Android. Once the app is tested, errors are fixed, and performance is improved, it is deployed to the AppStore or Google Play. Before submitting it to the store, the development team needs to make sure that the app is tested and functioning properly. The app information and metadata has to be complete and accurate, and the submitter’s contact information needs to be up-to-date. Backend services should be enabled, and all the non-obvious features should be explained. Besides, both Android and iOS have a unique set of technical and ethical requirements that developers need to follow.
Why Software Deployment Services?
Gets your product out to the market
If you do not deploy your software product to the web or an app store, the entire software design and development process becomes useless. Having come so far, why would you hide your product from the target audience?
Secures your users
A diligent and thorough software deployment process makes the final product more secure. By running safety checks and hardening infrastructure, software engineers make sure that neither an app nor its users are susceptible to a cyber attack.
Enables real-life tests
Having brought your software product to your target audience, you can finally see how it is doing in real-life settings. Do your users like your product? Are there any errors, difficulties, or bottlenecks? What can you add or improve?
Regardless of what product you develop, the purpose of it is to save money by solving some tasks or to bring profit by marketing it. Software deployment is the way for you to finally profit from it by bringing it to the market.
No, the installation will not happen, only the installable will get copied to the end user’s machine.
Any software that uses a valid license is termed as commercial. If a license is not required, then it is termed as noncommercial software.
Yes, you can configure the number of times you want to retry the configuration in case it fails to install.
How would you uninstall the previous version of the software while installing the latest version? This can be done using the pre-deployment activities.
