  • Zinabie Tadesse Gebremedhin Ethiopia The most successful information technology systems are those that are able to properly solve problems within an organisation. The development of information products and systems will usually follow a process that involves a number of distinct phases. Each of the phases has a series of events or steps that are completed in order to arrive at the final product. There are many factors which may prompt change within organisations and the development of any computer based information system should receive careful planning. The analysis phase of the SDLC is where existing system(s) are studied with the aims of designing a new or improved system. In this phase, a number of important decisions are made - including who will work on the system, and the setting of specific performance goals for the system to achieve. Data must be gathered on the strengths and weaknesses of the existing system by using methods analysis phase has the following steps: • announcing the project • creating the project team • defining information needs • defining system performance criteria • creating a design proposal The design phase, as the name suggests, is where the new system will be designed. In this phase the processes and data required by the new system are defined. In most projects, there will be a number of different ways in which the problem can be solved - and consequently, in this phase, it is important that a number of different alternatives are investigated to ensure that the most efficient and effective solution is adopted. Evaluation phase For each of these methods, some or all of the following criteria may be applied: • efficiency (time, cost, effort) • effectiveness (timeliness, accuracy, relevance, completeness) • maintainability

  • Jones Hanungu Munang'andu Zambia The principal objective of a feasibility study is to determine whether the system is desirable on the basis of long-term plans, strategic initiatives, and a cost-benefit analysis. System analysis provides a detailed answer to the question, What will the new system do? The next stage, system design, results in an extensive blueprint for how the new system will be organized. During the programming and testing stage, the individual software modules of the system are developed, tested, and integrated into a coherent operational system. Further levels of testing ensure continuing quality control. Installation includes final testing of the system in the work environment and conversion of organizational operations to the new system. The later stages of development include such implementation activities as training users and modifying the organizational processes in which the system will be used.
