How Artificial Intelligence helps Software Development Companies

As the world of information technology is rising, so has the demand of the companies providing the information technology services. Among so many of these popular services being provided is the software development service. This service has taken the world by storm and made life extremely easy for people, by opening up new possibilities of how business tasks can be achieved. Almost every major transformation of multiple kinds of businesses, has taken place thanks to some kind of software.

As the demand of the software is growing day by day, it has also increased the competition between the software development companies. Every custom software development company is racing to be one step ahead of the other. In the quest of staying ahead, companies are trying to think of new ideas which would make them unique and assist their business operations. This is the reason that more and more companies are adopting the latest technology of Artificial Intelligence. Companies have started to use Artificial Intelligence as a mean to automate and support the software that they are using or intending to use.

Using Artificial Intelligence in the software development process has made these custom development software companies work smartly by enhancing the processes, and devise the right kind of strategies to use it. The analytical tools that use artificial intelligence, allow you to get a clear progress of what is going on, and make quick decisions according to the results.

With all the capabilities and capacities of the Artificial Intelligence technology, it should not be considered superior to a human mind. The artificial intelligence technology was developed by using the human mind and not the other way around. Artificial Intelligence is just a tool which understands what you want it to do, hence ensuring that redundant and complex tasks do not take as much time as they would by manual methods. So the dependency is there on for the human input to be as such, that will allow the artificial intelligence to do the job it is meant to do.

Software Development is the service where you perform several tasks and go through several phases to attain the final product. The process of software development is called the software development life cycle. Artificial Intelligence Technology has proved to be a beacon of hope for the software development companies in being efficient during software development lifecycle. How does Artificial Intelligence assist in each of the development phase:

Requirement Phase:

This is the opening and perhaps the only phase which involves a lot of physical interactions. It is the base of the entire software development process, which dictates the quality of the software that will be developed. The better the client’s needs are understood by the custom software development company, the more qualitative the software will be at the end.

There are plenty of artificial intelligence tools that can support and enhance this process of communication for ensuring a development of a user centric software, suiting their needs and requirements. One of the common example is the use of β€œContent DNA Platform” for analyzing the content, which the clients have shared, as details about the software and the features that they want, and expect will assist you. The Content DNA Platform uses the functionalities and concepts of machine learning, which is branch of Artificial Intelligence.

Designing Phase:

After the custom software Development Company has attained the required information from the client about the software, now comes the time to devise a strategy on how to approach the completion of the process, in the given time, with respect to the resources that are available, before diving into the software development. The designers are required to design a dynamic interface of the software that is (preferably) changeable, for the scenario if the requirements of the client end up being different to what you have presented initially.

The Artificial Intelligence tool that can be used to enhance your understanding about the designs for various types of software, available to be used is AIDA (Artificial Intelligence Design Assistant) tool. We input our desires and the various inputs that allows AIDA to do the rest. This saves a lot of time for the software designer, as they do not have to perform an extensive surf or research to choose a design for the software.

Development Phase:

Coding of the software, in the software development process can be considered as the cream of the entire process. This phase of the process either makes or breaks the entire software, hence it is approached with delicacy and care by a custom software development company. The software developers are supposed to carry forward the design by the software designers and give it the required functionalities and features, which are asked for by the client.

Artificial Intelligence technologies are used for the code generation and optimization purposes, to enhance the performance of the code and make sure it runs across multiple platforms. The code that is generated via Artificial Intelligence tool is also likely to be bug-free. The code that is generated is according to the idea that you have inputted through different perimeters.

The implementation of the Artificial Intelligence technology require particular set of skills and expertise but once it is implemented, it makes life extremely easier for the software developers and coders.

Testing Phase:

Testing is an assurance and a go ahead signal, to consider the development as completed. The software goes through several testing protocols to not only ensure that the software is bug-free but also to confirm that the software complies with the requirements, that have been specified by the client. This process also looks for vulnerabilities in the source code and whether it is secured or not.

To ensure a more cost-effective, lesser time consuming, and a detailed testing report of the software, Artificial Intelligence tool and techniques are employed. These types of tools can not only debug the line of codes in 1000s in a short amount of time but also recommends a viable solution for the error which is shown. One of the examples of the Artificial Intelligence tool for the testing of the software is β€œDeepCode” which analyzes the code in real time, along with securing your source code for any chances of exploitation.

Summing it all up

Artificial Intelligence and Software Development remains a match which is a solutions for most of the software development companies. It is a revolutions which is being adopted by many companies around the work. Among them, one is Creative Ideator, which has welcomed this changed with open arms. This is reflected in its immaculate and user friendly software development services.
