Application Lifecycle

The application development process contains a number of steps and usually starts with requirement gathering and brainstorming before moving on to more technical steps. Some of these steps, like requirement gathering, happen outside of the Appivo platform. The first technical step of creating an application with Appivo is typically data modeling. This process is a continuous lifecycle of constant feedback and improvement, and is represented by the below diagram.
