Some of you may think – software development is very expensive.  This is not totally true.

To build software system with a  limited budget, these tips can be very helpful,

  • know your budget
  • know exactly what you want to develop - you must know all the possible users may use your system, all the screens, screen flow, process flows, and put them in a document for reference
  • scale down the scope of the software to meet your most important objective – there are price to pay for flexibility, expandability, extendability, etc
  • Get your own designer – if you know someone who can do the look & feel design for you for free,  get the design ready.
  • Minimize your changes during the development cycle – as I mentioned, if your budget is limited, you might have to sacrifice flexibility – so a simple change you are requesting, may screw up the entire system. So, think through it before the development started.
  • Google for similar system out there – you might not need to build one from scratch.
