SNP has an impressive record of developing new mission critical software applications, as well as enhancing and maintaining applications developed by third parties.
Our customers find that the enhanced automation, improved information retrieval, and usability of our applications contribute to effective and productive operations, as well as provide the revenue enhancements and cost reductions that originally motivated the project.
Whether your planned development project is large or small, SNP will follow the same proven strategies to ensure that your mission critical software application is successful.
SNP regards each phase of the software development lifecycle with utmost attention.
Our process begins with a Requirement Analysis for the purpose of developing functional requirement and technical specifications.
At the culmination of the specification phase, our development team implements a database and coding of your application. Your application may require data migration from a legacy system. We are skilled at extracting, transforming and loading your data into a new database.
SNP continually integrates and tests completed application elements on a development platform. Supporting staff test software features on a staging platform, which is shared with client stakeholders to validate requirements and obtain acceptance for production readiness. The final development step is the application's deployment to the production site. Following an agile project model, the deployment can occur in iterations, at the discretion of the customer.
At this point, even though your application's development has been completed, SNP's job may not be done. We will still be available to enhance your application, its reporting functionality, or the platform on which it runs.
In general, SNP is a Microsoft shop. This is to say that we utilize the proven toolsets backed and supported by Microsoft, as well as the extensive 3rd party market for components designed for integration into solutions based on Microsoft development technology. More specifically we are programming in the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) with a preference for SQL Server as the application database, when a database is required.
Depending on requirements, your application may be suited for deployment to the web (browser based), desktop (windows forms), and/or mobile device.
For internet website development, our horizon expands to include the Drupal framework for content management system (CMS) development and the ColdFusion application programming language for database driven website applications. In this respect, we are not tied to using Microsoft technology. Our objective is to apply the best option to your circumstance.
