 Tools and Languages Minimize
At Shields Software Services we want your new website to stand the test of time. To ensure that it does, we support the Microsoft family of programming languages and tool sets. From the early days of DOS and Windows, Microsoft has continued to invest and advance its development products. Therefore, we have invested the time to learn and become experts in those products. Our web design and web development tools include Visual Studio.NET, MS SQL Server or MS Access databases, and our graphics are designed with the assistance of MS Publisher and MS Paint.

We can also include your own graphics, or you can purchase professional graphic sets created by certified graphic artists. Generally, these are theme oriented and your purchase cost is for legal use of those graphics.


 SDLC Disciplines Minimize
SDLC is a conceptual model used in project management that describes the stages involved in an information system development project, from an initial feasibility study through maintenance of the completed application. Various SDLC methodologies have been developed to guide the processes involved, including the waterfall model (which was the original SDLC method); rapid application development (RAD); joint application development (JAD); the fountain model; the spiral model; build and fix; and synchronize-and-stabilize. Frequently, several models are combined into some sort of hybrid methodology. Documentation is crucial regardless of the type of model chosen or devised for any application, and is usually done in parallel with the development process. Some methods work better for specific types of projects, but in the final analysis, the most important factor for the success of a project may be how closely the particular plan was followed.

In general, our hybrid SDLC Methodology follows these steps:
  • Interview users, support personnel, and management.
  • Evaluate the existing system.
  • Identify deficiencies.
  • Develop Project Charter to resize SDLC controls.
  • Definition
  • Project Plan.
