IT Launchpad

The Origin of IT

IT (information technology) is a vast field that has slowly and steadily taken over the world in the 21st century. It started with the introduction of computers by Charles Babbage and went all the way to smart computers and technology. Computers used to just focus on simple calculations but have now transformed into this fantastic fantasy that creates the impossible—blow by blow from reading the environment to controlling that very environment without human interaction. With the advancements in technology, the need for human operation is slowly depleting and being taken over by machines. The requirements are changing and the difficulties people are used to facing are slowly changing into new ones.

Misconceptions of Software Development

Suppose a person originates an idea and decides to turn that idea into a reality. They need proper direction and guidance, which not many can bestow upon them. The chance that they get it can only be utilized once they have the appropriate support with them. People assume software development is just the coding part and then you are done. It is nowhere close to it. An SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) is a complete process that works an idea to the bone and delivers a suitable product in turn for it.

Relations with the Client

Who guarantees that you get what you want? The area for miscommunication is as big as the product itself. Most of the time, the client isn’t even sure of what they enjoy themselves. Whether this requirement is actually possible to complete or not indeed depends on the understanding of the client. A considerable percentage of clients are not technically gifted and have no idea how the mechanism of the software works. This lack of information may come across as ego when presenting an argument. Some of the biggest companies have to suffer through the phase of elicitation and all the way through the software cycle. Client meetings become tiresome and taxing on the business. Ultimately the relationship between the client and company starts to deteriorate and neither of them gets what they want.

Transmission within the Team

The problems of communication spread out to the team and all the affected members stem from the misdirection of the product. A client that isn’t satisfied with the product or worried about the fundamentals of the software would reach out to the members of the team for a more personal touch. The manager would connect the client to the developers in the group. Now, the manager is supposed to be the medium of communication between the team and the client. Eliminating this medium would ultimately urge the developers to move out of their comfort zone and the conversations break down. A developer is rehearsed chiefly in the technical aspects of the software development and explaining the functions of the software in layman’s terms is something outside their pay cut. This moves them to lose trust in the vendor, which then ultimately adds to the demise of the software. Instead of office-based developers, we now have distributed teams. The team is global. A team has members in different time zones. Meetings in an office are demanding now. So, team members must communicate well. Today’s developers must be able to discuss honestly and explicitly their work and difficulties.

Tackling the Problem

This is in no way the dead-stop of the company and the progress has only to move forward. To accomplish the task in the most efficient and effective way possible, firms take up several techniques for the processing of the product, like Agile, which keeps the establishment in a productive manner. Daily meetings and agendas at the start of the day keep the work and requirements in check. Even at the biggest companies in the world, like IT Launchpad, the workflow is influenced by a model chosen that works in the most effective way possible, along with saving time. At ITLP, communications are just as important as the product itself and in the end, it’s the product that matters.
