Rapid Application Development Environments
This topic always generates a lot of discussion, so I’m sure this time will be no different. First let’s start with the definition.
Rapid Application Development – refers to a type of software development methodology that involves techniques like iterative development and software prototyping. Essentially it is a development style that favors incremental development with constant feedback from the end user. This development process is repeated until the application has been perfected and meets the needs of the user. Many organizations have found that Rapid Application Development or RAD is a fantastic idea, but is requires advanced tools to make this approach a reality. This is where companies like MobileFrame come into the picture.
In order to “Rapidly Develop Applications” it becomes necessary to provide functionality out of the box, to make the development effort easier.
