What is rapid application

A system development approach designed to speed application development

The rapid app development (RAD) strategy employs tools, techniques, and methodologies
devised to achieve faster time-to-market while ensuring congruency between the vision for
the app and the final product

Rapid application development model

This model relies on prototyping and rapid cycles of iterative development to speed up development and elicit early feedback from business users

Planning: The prototyping needs and limitations are identified and agreed upon by developers, designers, IT, and engineers.

Design: Initial prototyping and modeling is done after multiple iterations. Feedback from user experiences helps in designing the overall architecture of the application.

Development: The basic coding, testing, and integration to backend services are done in this phase. Enhancements can be made based on requirements.

Release: The development team moves the components from a testing environment to production. The application is deployed and ready to be used!
