Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)
ChemWare uses the Agile software development methodology for product development, testing, and release cycles. Compared with the traditional "waterfall" approach, Agile emphasizes a planning process that can be less deterministic and dependent on all user requirements being known in advance, relying instead on cross-functional teams and an iterative development and delivery approach that promotes flexibility and feedback throughout the development cycle.
Some may argue that a formal SDLC model
no longer applies under Agile computing, but for traditionalists, the SDLC continues to provide a conceptual framework for visualizing the product roadmap and upgrade planning.
