The Systems Development Life Cycle is the framework for planning and controlling the software development process. There are a total of 7 phases: Preliminary Analysis, Systems Analysis, Systems design, Development, Integration and Testing, Acceptance and Maintenance.
The traditional systems development life cycle (SDLC) contains seven phases: (1) planning, (2) systems analysis, (3) systems design, (4) development, (5) testing, (6) implementation, and (7) maintenance
The difference is that "systems development life cycle" is the time it takes to fully develop and fine-tune an entire information system. "Software development life cycle" applies only to the software development process.
Some of the key problems with information systems that show up later in the systems development life cycle can be traced back to inadequate work during requirements determination. How might this issue be avoided?
A software development process, also known as a software development life-cycle (SDLC), is a structure imposed on thedevelopment of a software product. Similar terms include software life cycle and software process. It is often considered a subset of systems development life cycle.
