  • Voice Enabled Banking and Chatbots with Dialogflow

    Banking chatbots generate better results and superior customer experiences for the banking industry and other financial institutions

    Introduction

    Banking chatbots generate better results and superior customer experiences for the banking industry and other financial institutions. They help the customers in multiple ways like getting account balances, to apply for loan or credit card, transfer funds, pay bills, or to update the profile details. Regular customer interactions can be automated partially or fully using a banking chatbot which is available 24/7. A voice enabled

    What is Chatbot?

    chatbot is a variation of a conversational AI solution. It leverages NLP combined with speech-to-text(self-developed or already existing platforms) and automates speech recognition to deliver resolution immediately. Voice Assistants can either be a complete voice-based model or as a multimodal chatbot supporting both text and voice

    What is Dialogflow?

    Dialogflow is a natural language understanding platform used to design and integrate a conversational user interface into mobile apps, web applications, devices, bots, interactive voice response systems, and related uses

    Overview of Market Share

    The global chatbot market size was estimated at USD 430.9 million in 2020. The growth is expected to be driven by the increasing adoption of customer service activities among enterprises to reduce operating costs. A chatbot is an interactive application developed using either a set of rules or artificial intelligence technology. A chatbot is basically developed using AI technology or a set of rules. It is designed in such a way that it can interact with humans through text. To assists users in various sectors, it is integrated with other messaging services. Various innovative ideas are implemented in Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies which will enhance the features of chatbots, which, in turn, will create greater demand for chatbots. Since businesses are looking for ways to automate their sales and other services Chatbots are becoming popular. This helps the organizations to stick to the schedule at reduced cost.

    How do Chatbots work?

    1. 1A user sends a text/voice message to a device or an App
    2. The App/Device transfers the message to Dialogflow( via detecting API )
    3. The message is categorized and matched to a corresponding intent (Intents are defined manually by developers in Dialogflow)
    4. We define the following actions for each intent in the fulfillment (Webhook)
    5. When a certain intent is found by Dialogflow, the webhook will use external APIs to find a response in external databases
    6. The external databases send back the required information to the webhook
    7. Webhook sends a formatted response to the intent
    8. Intent generates actionable data according to different channels
    9. The actionable data go to output Apps/Devices
    10. The user gets a text/image/voice response

    How to build your first Chatbots?

    Agent: An agent is merely another term used to refer to the chatbot. While using Dialogflow, you will find that many people start off by asking you to ‘name the agent.’ This just means giving your chatbot a name, so even in this context, it's one and the same Intent – ‘Intents’ are how a chatbot understands Expressions Responses: This is the chatbot’s output that is aimed at satisfying the user’s intent Entities: ‘Entities’ are Dialogflow’s mechanism. It helps to identify and extract useful data from the natural language inputs given by user. Actions & Parameters are also Dialogflow mechanisms Actions & Parameters These too, are Dialogflow mechanisms. They serve as a method to identify/annotate the keywords/values in the training phrases by connecting them with Entities We will see how to create a chatbot in Dialogflow using the following

    Step1: Login with DialogFlow Account

    1. Go to https://dialogflow.cloud.google.com
    2. Click ‘Go to console’ in the top right corner
    3. Login with a Gmail account

    Step2: Create a new Agent

    1. Start off by clicking ‘Create Agent’ in the column menu to your left
    2. Give your Bot a name! We’re going to call ours a ‘Testing’
    3. Be sure to select your time zone and language as required
    4. Click ‘Create’

    Step3: Create a new Intent

    1. Click “Intent” on the left side
    2. Add the Intent Name and Training Phrases
    3. If you have already created Entity, Please mark the entity for the corresponding questions. Here I have created one entity as “Cheque” and marked that keyword to that training phrase
    4. After that, we need to add the response in the Intent
    5. Click “Save” in Intent

    Step4: Check Question

    We are able to check the questions on the right side of the top corner and it will give the intent name, Entity name and answer also

    Best features

    Some best features are given below
    1. Self Service Customer Support Self Service via a voice bot is more scalable and customer-centric. Giving your customers a voice bot as the first mode of communication can help them resolve their queries faster and for major queries, the AI-enabled voice bot can transfer the call or the message to the right agent
    2. Zero Wait Time Calling any customer support center can be a nightmare for most people, basically, because of the wait time and redirections. Enabling FAQs on automating general queries on IVR, Alexa or Google Assistant can save a lot of time and the agent can take over or the call can be transferred to the agent only for critical issues
    3. 24/7 Availability Humans require rest, but machines do not. Even if your agent is not available, the voice bots can resolve the queries for your customers and take their details in case of urgent queries. And your agent can contact them at their earliest convenience
    4. Break from Monotonous Texts Provide a multimodal Intelligent Virtual assistant supporting both chat and voice, rather than just a text-based chatbot. Just a text-based chatbot requires a lot of patience, and time from the user’s end. And also sometimes it becomes difficult to understand voiceless messages as it lacks sentiments. AI-enabled voice bot is highly automated, intelligent, and customer-friendly; making it a need of the hour for brand-customer engagement platforms
    5. No human contact Pandemic made it really clear the need for an automated customer support system, as most customer support offices were closed down. Many businesses and banking institutions were seen adopting IVR support for resolving customer queries like Kotak, ICICI, etc
    6. Save Cost An automated AI-enabled voice bot increases your team’s productivity, by taking care of all repetitive queries. Your team can just focus on critical queries, thus saving a lot of time and money for your business
    7. Increased Productivity Using voice bots, your customers can handle multiple tasks simultaneously, and in one call. Customers can schedule appointments, organize and modify meetings, check balance, do transactions, get account details, set reminders, etc

    Tech Stack and Team Capabilities

    A company can use Dialogflow to create messaging bots that respond to customer queries in platforms like Alexa Voice Services (AVS), Google Assistant, Facebook Messenger, Slack, Twitter, Skype, Twilio, Telegram, and several other messaging integrations. Dialogflow can be integrated into WhatsApp, too

    Other chatbot platforms

    • Google Dialogflow
    • Amazon Lex
    • IBM Watson Assistant
    • Facebook’s Wit.ai

  • How to effectively use JIRA to drive the agile transformation of your organization?

    Agile transformation is the sustained organization-wide process of helping individuals and organizations undergo the necessary mindset shift to reap the full benefits of agility

    Introduction

    Agile transformation is the sustained organization-wide process of helping individuals and organizations undergo the necessary mindset shift to reap the full benefits of agility. What makes Agile transformation necessary for the traditional business is the constant state of change as well as the democratization of value definition and delivery. By transforming the entire organization to be more Agile, big companies can retain a competitive advantage. Agile transformation is necessary for organizations to thrive in today’s markets and into the future As a leading collaboration platform for agile teams, JIRA Software boasts powerful features for marketers. JIRA is a proprietary issue tracking product, developed by Atlassian. It provides bug tracking, issue tracking, and project management functions. Also, JIRA has integrated solutions for cross-functional projects. You can easily bring all teams together to collaborate on a shared goal

    Overview of Market Share

    Looking at Atlassian JIRA customers by industry, Computer Software (26%) and Information Technology and Services (14%) are the largest segments. Atlassian TEAM delivered better-than-expected fourth-quarter fiscal 2021 results. The company’s non-IFRS (International Financing Reporting Standards) earnings per share of 24 cents beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 18 cents Atlassian forecast adjusted earnings between 38 cents and 39 cents per share on revenue between $575 million and $590 million for the first quarter. The company witnessed solid demand for its cloud-based products, primarily led by smaller customers, while the cloud migration momentum continued for larger clients Atlassian reported an operating loss of $7.5 million for the quarter, up from a loss of $3.3 million a year ago. Despite the year-over-year dollar increase, the operating margin loss remained 1%. Its shares jumped 24% to $331.96 per share Friday at the last check

    How JIRA helps in the Agile Transformation of the Organization?

    Creating a Scrum Project

    Once you create and log in to an account in Jira Software, you can select a template from the library. Select Scrum and then, you’ll be prompted to choose a project type. If your team works independently and wants to control your own working processes and practices in a self-contained space, consider giving the team-managed Scrum template a try

    Creating User Stories or Tasks in the Backlog

    In Jira Software, you can create work items like user stories, tasks, and bugs "issues". Create a few user stories with the quick create option on the backlog. If you don't have user stories in mind, just create sample stories to get started and see how the process works. Once you've created a few user stories, you can start prioritizing them in the backlog. In Jira Software, you rank or prioritize your stories by dragging and dropping them in the order that they should be worked on

    Creating a Sprint

    Create your first sprint in the backlog so you can start planning the sprint Sprint: In Scrum, teams forecast to complete a set of user stories or other work items during a fixed time duration, known as a sprint. Generally speaking, sprints are one, two, or four weeks long. It's up to the team to determine the length of a sprint. Once a sprint cadence is determined, the team perpetually operates on that cadence. Fixed length sprints reinforce estimation skills and predict the future velocity for the team as they work through the backlog

    Hold the Sprint Planning Meeting

    At the beginning of a sprint, you should hold the sprint planning meeting with your team. The sprint planning meeting is a ceremony that sets up the entire team for success throughout the sprint. In this meeting, the entire team discusses the sprint goal and the stories in the prioritized product backlog. The development team creates detailed tasks and estimates for the high-priority stories. The development team then commits to completing a certain number of stories in the sprint. These stories and the plan for completing them become what is known as the sprint backlog

    Start the Sprint in JIRA

    Name the sprint. Some teams name the sprint based on their sprint goal. If there is a commonality between the issues in the sprint, name the sprint around that theme. Add a duration of the sprint and start and end dates. The start and end dates should align with your team's schedule Following are the steps to be followed after starting a newsprint
    1.  Hold the daily standup meetings
    2.  View the Burndown Chart
    3. View the sprint report
    4. Hold the sprint review meeting
    5. Hold the sprint retrospective meeting
    6. Complete the spring it JIRA
    If the sprint has incomplete issues, you can move the issue/issues to the backlog, move the issue/issues to a future sprint, or move the issue/issues to newsprint, which Jira will create for you

    What are the Best Features of Using JIRA to Drive the Agile Transformation?

    Agile Project Management

    The platform primarily focuses on agile project management, offering the Scrum approach. It also has the capability to capture regulatory evidence at different stages of the development process. Moreover, Jira Software supports all sorts of estimation techniques, be it by hours, story points, or more. This way, you can make sure that you are working with accurate data at all times

    Customizable Workflows

    With Jira, you can even create custom workflows and issue schemes in more specific cases. This will take much of your developers’ burden off their shoulders, and empower your project management units to maximize the potential of their idea. If you’re using Jira’s cloud-based solution, the configuration will take even less time And custom dashboards are a one-stop-shop for all of the information you need to organize projects, and achievements in a single view

    Product Roadmaps

    It is a plan of action for how a product or solution will evolve over time. When used in agile development, a roadmap provides crucial context for the team's everyday work and should be responsive to shifts in the competitive landscape. To build a roadmap, product owners take into account market trajectories, value propositions, and engineering constraints. Once these factors are reasonably well-understood, they are expressed in a roadmap as initiatives and timelines. Once a roadmap is built, it needs to be shared with the entire product team so everyone understands the vision and direction

    Bugs and Defect Management

    JIRA helps you to quickly capture, assign and prioritize bugs and track all aspects of the software development cycle. JIRA's powerful workflow engine provides a clear view of a bug's status, and automation keeps you in the know with notifications as issues transition from backlog to done. JIRA gives you full visibility and control of your products' end-to-end development Once you have identified a bug, create an issue and add all relevant details, including descriptions, severity level, screenshots, version, and more. Issues can represent anything from a software bug, a project task to a leave request form, and each unique issue type can have its own custom workflow

    Powerful Search and Filtering

    JIRA Software comes with advanced search capabilities powered by Jira Query Language(JQL) that offers teams detailed views into their work. Query results can be saved and used as filters and views across Jira (including boards). The three flavors of search in Jira - Quick, Basic, and Advanced - can help you find important information about your projects

    Advanced Reporting

    JIRA offers reporting in a number of different formats. Project reports that are available from the home screen of the selected project, Gadgets that can be added and arranged in Dashboards and for each filter, the issue navigator offers various output formats that can be used in third-party reporting software

Since businesses are looking for ways to automate their sales and other services Chatbots are becoming popular. This helps the organizations to stick to the schedule at reduced cost.

    How do Chatbots work?

    1. 1A user sends a text/voice message to a device or an App
    2. The App/Device transfers the message to Dialogflow( via detecting API )
    3. The message is categorized and matched to a corresponding intent (Intents are defined manually by developers in Dialogflow)
    4. We define the following actions for each intent in the fulfillment (Webhook)
    5. When a certain intent is found by Dialogflow, the webhook will use external APIs to find a response in external databases
    6. The external databases send back the required information to the webhook
    7. Webhook sends a formatted response to the intent
    8. Intent generates actionable data according to different channels
    9. The actionable data go to output Apps/Devices
    10. The user gets a text/image/voice response

    How to build your first Chatbots?

    Agent: An agent is merely another term used to refer to the chatbot. While using Dialogflow, you will find that many people start off by asking you to ‘name the agent.’ This just means giving your chatbot a name, so even in this context, it's one and the same Intent – ‘Intents’ are how a chatbot understands Expressions Responses: This is the chatbot’s output that is aimed at satisfying the user’s intent Entities: ‘Entities’ are Dialogflow’s mechanism. It helps to identify and extract useful data from the natural language inputs given by user. Actions & Parameters are also Dialogflow mechanisms Actions & Parameters These too, are Dialogflow mechanisms. They serve as a method to identify/annotate the keywords/values in the training phrases by connecting them with Entities We will see how to create a chatbot in Dialogflow using the following

    Step1: Login with DialogFlow Account

    1. Go to https://dialogflow.cloud.google.com
    2. Click ‘Go to console’ in the top right corner
    3. Login with a Gmail account

    Step2: Create a new Agent

    1. Start off by clicking ‘Create Agent’ in the column menu to your left
    2. Give your Bot a name! We’re going to call ours a ‘Testing’
    3. Be sure to select your time zone and language as required
    4. Click ‘Create’

    Step3: Create a new Intent

    1. Click “Intent” on the left side
    2. Add the Intent Name and Training Phrases
    3. If you have already created Entity, Please mark the entity for the corresponding questions. Here I have created one entity as “Cheque” and marked that keyword to that training phrase
    4. After that, we need to add the response in the Intent
    5. Click “Save” in Intent

    Step4: Check Question

    We are able to check the questions on the right side of the top corner and it will give the intent name, Entity name and answer also

    2. Zero Wait Time Calling any customer support center can be a nightmare for most people, basically, because of the wait time and redirections. Enabling FAQs on automating general queries on IVR, Alexa or Google Assistant can save a lot of time and the agent can take over or the call can be transferred to the agent only for critical issues
    3. 24/7 Availability Humans require rest, but machines do not. Even if your agent is not available, the voice bots can resolve the queries for your customers and take their details in case of urgent queries. And your agent can contact them at their earliest convenience
    4. Break from Monotonous Texts Provide a multimodal Intelligent Virtual assistant supporting both chat and voice, rather than just a text-based chatbot. Just a text-based chatbot requires a lot of patience, and time from the user’s end. And also sometimes it becomes difficult to understand voiceless messages as it lacks sentiments. AI-enabled voice bot is highly automated, intelligent, and customer-friendly; making it a need of the hour for brand-customer engagement platforms
    5. No human contact Pandemic made it really clear the need for an automated customer support system, as most customer support offices were closed down. Many businesses and banking institutions were seen adopting IVR support for resolving customer queries like Kotak, ICICI, etc
    6. Save Cost An automated AI-enabled voice bot increases your team’s productivity, by taking care of all repetitive queries. Your team can just focus on critical queries, thus saving a lot of time and money for your business
    7. Increased Productivity Using voice bots, your customers can handle multiple tasks simultaneously, and in one call. Customers can schedule appointments, organize and modify meetings, check balance, do transactions, get account details, set reminders, etc

  • How to effectively use JIRA to drive the agile transformation of your organization?

    Agile transformation is the sustained organization-wide process of helping individuals and organizations undergo the necessary mindset shift to reap the full benefits of agility

    Introduction

    Agile transformation is the sustained organization-wide process of helping individuals and organizations undergo the necessary mindset shift to reap the full benefits of agility. What makes Agile transformation necessary for the traditional business is the constant state of change as well as the democratization of value definition and delivery. By transforming the entire organization to be more Agile, big companies can retain a competitive advantage. Agile transformation is necessary for organizations to thrive in today’s markets and into the future As a leading collaboration platform for agile teams, JIRA Software boasts powerful features for marketers. JIRA is a proprietary issue tracking product, developed by Atlassian. It provides bug tracking, issue tracking, and project management functions. Also, JIRA has integrated solutions for cross-functional projects. You can easily bring all teams together to collaborate on a shared goal

    Overview of Market Share

    Looking at Atlassian JIRA customers by industry, Computer Software (26%) and Information Technology and Services (14%) are the largest segments. Atlassian TEAM delivered better-than-expected fourth-quarter fiscal 2021 results. The company’s non-IFRS (International Financing Reporting Standards) earnings per share of 24 cents beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 18 cents Atlassian forecast adjusted earnings between 38 cents and 39 cents per share on revenue between $575 million and $590 million for the first quarter. The company witnessed solid demand for its cloud-based products, primarily led by smaller customers, while the cloud migration momentum continued for larger clients Atlassian reported an operating loss of $7.5 million for the quarter, up from a loss of $3.3 million a year ago. Despite the year-over-year dollar increase, the operating margin loss remained 1%. Its shares jumped 24% to $331.96 per share Friday at the last check

    How JIRA helps in the Agile Transformation of the Organization?

    Creating a Scrum Project

    Once you create and log in to an account in Jira Software, you can select a template from the library. Select Scrum and then, you’ll be prompted to choose a project type. If your team works independently and wants to control your own working processes and practices in a self-contained space, consider giving the team-managed Scrum template a try

    Creating User Stories or Tasks in the Backlog

    In Jira Software, you can create work items like user stories, tasks, and bugs "issues". Create a few user stories with the quick create option on the backlog. If you don't have user stories in mind, just create sample stories to get started and see how the process works. Once you've created a few user stories, you can start prioritizing them in the backlog. In Jira Software, you rank or prioritize your stories by dragging and dropping them in the order that they should be worked on

    Creating a Sprint

    Create your first sprint in the backlog so you can start planning the sprint Sprint: In Scrum, teams forecast to complete a set of user stories or other work items during a fixed time duration, known as a sprint. Generally speaking, sprints are one, two, or four weeks long. It's up to the team to determine the length of a sprint. Once a sprint cadence is determined, the team perpetually operates on that cadence. Fixed length sprints reinforce estimation skills and predict the future velocity for the team as they work through the backlog

    Hold the Sprint Planning Meeting

    At the beginning of a sprint, you should hold the sprint planning meeting with your team. The sprint planning meeting is a ceremony that sets up the entire team for success throughout the sprint. In this meeting, the entire team discusses the sprint goal and the stories in the prioritized product backlog. The development team creates detailed tasks and estimates for the high-priority stories. The development team then commits to completing a certain number of stories in the sprint. These stories and the plan for completing them become what is known as the sprint backlog

    Start the Sprint in JIRA

    Name the sprint. Some teams name the sprint based on their sprint goal. If there is a commonality between the issues in the sprint, name the sprint around that theme. Add a duration of the sprint and start and end dates. The start and end dates should align with your team's schedule Following are the steps to be followed after starting a newsprint
    1.  Hold the daily standup meetings
    2.  View the Burndown Chart
    3. View the sprint report
    4. Hold the sprint review meeting
    5. Hold the sprint retrospective meeting
    6. Complete the spring it JIRA
    If the sprint has incomplete issues, you can move the issue/issues to the backlog, move the issue/issues to a future sprint, or move the issue/issues to newsprint, which Jira will create for you

    What are the Best Features of Using JIRA to Drive the Agile Transformation?

    Agile Project Management

    The platform primarily focuses on agile project management, offering the Scrum approach. It also has the capability to capture regulatory evidence at different stages of the development process. Moreover, Jira Software supports all sorts of estimation techniques, be it by hours, story points, or more. This way, you can make sure that you are working with accurate data at all times

    Customizable Workflows

    With Jira, you can even create custom workflows and issue schemes in more specific cases. This will take much of your developers’ burden off their shoulders, and empower your project management units to maximize the potential of their idea. If you’re using Jira’s cloud-based solution, the configuration will take even less time And custom dashboards are a one-stop-shop for all of the information you need to organize projects, and achievements in a single view

    Product Roadmaps

    It is a plan of action for how a product or solution will evolve over time. When used in agile development, a roadmap provides crucial context for the team's everyday work and should be responsive to shifts in the competitive landscape. To build a roadmap, product owners take into account market trajectories, value propositions, and engineering constraints. Once these factors are reasonably well-understood, they are expressed in a roadmap as initiatives and timelines. Once a roadmap is built, it needs to be shared with the entire product team so everyone understands the vision and direction

    Bugs and Defect Management

    JIRA helps you to quickly capture, assign and prioritize bugs and track all aspects of the software development cycle. JIRA's powerful workflow engine provides a clear view of a bug's status, and automation keeps you in the know with notifications as issues transition from backlog to done. JIRA gives you full visibility and control of your products' end-to-end development Once you have identified a bug, create an issue and add all relevant details, including descriptions, severity level, screenshots, version, and more. Issues can represent anything from a software bug, a project task to a leave request form, and each unique issue type can have its own custom workflow

    Powerful Search and Filtering

    JIRA Software comes with advanced search capabilities powered by Jira Query Language(JQL) that offers teams detailed views into their work. Query results can be saved and used as filters and views across Jira (including boards). The three flavors of search in Jira - Quick, Basic, and Advanced - can help you find important information about your projects

  • What Are The Phases of Software Development Lifecycle

    Software Development Lifecycle, in short, termed as SDLC is a process that defines various stages involved in software development for the delivery of a product.
    Software Development Lifecycle, in short, termed as SDLC is a process that defines various stages involved in software development for the delivery of a product. SDLC is very important as it gives a framework for a set of activities and ensures the quality of the product delivered. There are seven phases involved in Software Development Lifecycle. They are Planning, Requirement Analysis, Design, Implementation, Testing, Deployment, and Maintenance. Here we shall see each of these phase-in detail

    Phases of SDLC

    1. Planning

    As the quote says “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”, Planning is very important for any task. Similarly, Planning is the initial phase of the Software Development Life cycle. Planning starts with listing the problems of an Existing system. Problems in the existing system are listed to come up with the objectives of the new system to be developed. Along with the scope of the new system, financial planning and Resources planning are also done in this phase. Then last comes the planning for the project schedule which is very essential to complete the project on time. Only when the planning phase is completed, it can be moved on to the other phases

    2. Requirement Gathering and Analysis

    Defining Requirements and gathering all required information like the purpose of the new system, end-users for the new system, their needs are all carried out during this phase. Risks involved in the development of the new system are also identified. The analysis is done to ensure that the end-users needs can be met by the new system. All clarifications regarding the requirements are received from the concerned team before starting on the Design part. The output of this phase will be in the form of a document more often called a Software Requirement Specification or SRS document. This document along with new system requirements also contains Software, Hardware, and Network requirements needed for the development of the new system. This will be used as the input for the design phase

    3. Design

    Design is a kind of modeling everything visually. Developers will outline the details for the new system using the Software Requirement Specification document in the form of a Design Document. The Design document will include details like User Interface which will define how the user is going to interact with the new system, Database which is going to be used for storing data, platforms on which the new system will run, Security measures to be taken to protect the system, etc. So both front-end and back-end are defined here. If required, prototypes are also defined. Prototypes give a basic idea of the actual look and feel of the new system. When the design is completed it is time to move on to the next phase, which is the development phase

    4. Development

    This phase is the coding phase. This is the most important phase of SDLC as it is where the actual software is developed. It is the longest phase of SDLC. Here the design document is converted into the software. The developers need to make sure the software meets the Software requirement specifications. Developers will have to follow coding standards and use tools like compilers and debuggers to eliminate coding defects. Identifying coding bugs and fixing them is critical here. Programming languages are chosen based on the requirements and specifications of the project. A detailed design will help in hassle-free code development

    5. Testing

    Testing of an application is critical before it is actually made available to the Users. This is part of a Quality Assurance process. It is started as soon as coding is completed and all coding errors are fixed. It is done by Quality Assurance Engineers. Manual or Automated Testing are performed depending on the Project. In the case of Automated Testing, many tools are available in the market. Again depending on the nature of the project automated testing tools are selected. The developed software is tested thoroughly to make sure that the requirements are met. The defects are identified and logged in Defect Tracking tools. Then they are tracked to closure. Different types of defect tracking tools are used by different companies. The initial testing done is called Unit testing. Then the individual units are integrated and integration testing is performed. The software is repeatedly tested to ensure that there are no more defects

    6. Deployment

    When the defects are all closed and no more defects are identified, the software is ready for installation. The installation phase is often called the Deployment phase. In some cases, it could be the deployment of code on a web server, and in some cases, it could be integrating with other systems. The users can start using the software after deployment. In some cases, since the software is deployed to the production environment, again another round of testing is carried out here to ensure that there are no issues in the new environment. The users could also be trained just before this phase to make sure that they are aware of the usage and features of the new system

    7. Maintenance

    Maintenance is an important phase as there might be issues identified when the end-users start using the product. In some cases, the end-users keep changing and there might be different types of issues identified. These issues need to be fixed from time to time. The maintenance time might vary depending on the size of the project. Sometimes even new features are added as per user feedback and released

    SDLC Models

    There are various SDLC models and the most common ones are Waterfall and Agile. We shall see about these in detail

    Waterfall Model

    This was the most commonly used and most accepted model. The output of one phase of the Software Development Lifecycle is used as the input for the next phase. So the successive phases can be started only after the completion of the previous phase. At the end of each phase review and sign-off is done before moving on to the next phase. The waterfall model is very useful when the requirements are fixed and do not keep changing. The main advantage of the waterfall model is it is easy to follow and the milestones are clearly defined

    Agile Model

    Agile is a simple and highly effective process. In the Agile model, the task is divided into small iterations of smaller durations. For each iteration, all phases of SDLC like planning, analysis, design, coding, implementation, testing, and deployment are carried out. Here there will be continuous delivery. Even when there are frequent changes in the requirement that can be handled here easily. During each sprint the new requirements come from Backlog and roll through all phases of SDLC. Since changes are inevitable the agile model helps the project to adapt to it instead of ignoring it SDLC is a systematic process and it ensures the quality of the product delivered. All phases of SDLC are very important. So adhering to phases of SDLC is very important for the success of the project

  • How to build a Ridesharing App?

    The main idea of taxi booking apps is to book a taxi in under 30 seconds easily. And the most convenient way is to connect drivers and riders via a mobile app like Uber, Ola, etc.

    You can call your trip in the following criteria

    • The passenger has pre-planned a trip and his travel
    • The passenger has made no prior arrangement and this is unplanned
    • The passenger is out on the road and looking for a taxi service
    Sometimes passengers may look for companions to share costs but have a rest during long trips The main idea of taxi booking apps is to easily book a taxi in under 30 seconds. Like Uber and Ola it would be easy and convenient for a rider to connect with a driver through a mobile app.

    Here’s how Taxi Booking Apps work

    1. Request - Passengers specify where they’re going, where they'd like to pick up and drop off passengers, and when
    2. Booking - Passengers look through the type of trips, cars, and book a ride
    3. Payment - Passengers pay in the app or cash when they get in the car
    4. Rating - Riders rate the trip and leave their reviews
    If riders choose to pay via the app, the money goes to the drivers bank account from the time of payment within two days

    Must-Have Features

    Registration & Profile

    For registration the user need to enter his phone number, email and then generate a password. Some apps also offer signing up through social media like facebook, Google or twitter and helps to save the time of user.

    Book a Ride

    Initially passengers enter their destination along with pickup point and then select a driver to take up the ride. Before starting a ride the rider will look for the cost. Drivers can view the booking requests and accept or reject them. Otherwise they can accept all requests that come to them automatically. When there is no ride available for a rider, he will get an alert saying that he will be notified as soon as a ride is available.

    My Rides (Passenger/Driver)

    Passengers see the number of rides they’ve completed and their details—date, destination, car, payment details—in the ‘archived’ tab

    GPS Location

    In ride-sharing app development, GPS is used to detect someone's location. That's how drivers can set exact pickup and drop off points, while riders can see their whole route

    Fare Calculation

    The app calculates the cost for each passenger based on their number and travel distance. This helps passengers to select the preferred mode of payment.
    • Online - The app transfers money to PayPal or a bank account
    • In cash - Riders pay in the car before or after the ride

    Admin Panel

    Admin panel helps the administrators to manage users. They can search for an user, block them or check up an ID card, do payments, perform reviews, generate reports or view statistics

    How to Monetize a Taxi Booking App?

    Before you start creating a ridesharing app the first step would be to choose a monetization model. The most common are
    • Paid advertising (users see third-party ads in the app)
    • Reservation/cancellation fees for riders (passengers pay a small booking fee to confirm their intentions)
    • Transaction fees for drivers
    • Collecting a small service fee for every ride from passengers

  • How To Enable Green Field Systems on Azure

    A MAJOR ENERGY player, multinational integrated oil and gas company, is one of the seven big oil companies in the world

    A MAJOR ENERGY player, multinational integrated oil and gas company, is one of the seven big oil companies in the world. The main objective of client was to come up with an integrated solution for Azure Service Orchestration for various mobile, web, analytics and machine learning projects

    Overview of Challenges faced by Client

    1. The client has an existing architecture and system setup to support specific topology of applications in pre-production. The cost involved in building the infrastructure and the technical dependencies to maintain and enhance is too high
    2. Industry-standard well-architected framework principles were not followed. The client is stuck with a solution that is not scalable. Ex: takes weeks to add support for a different topology of apps
    3. Time taken to set up and tear down infrastructures is causing a huge delay in business deliveries and directly impacting the business deliveries and operational cost
    4. Testing the service configuration and having a first-time-right infrastructure for each system type is a major challenge in any cloud provider

    How Current system Works

    In the existing system, the Engineer has to know about azure resources and every service to provide the resources through the Azure portal. Creating or updating the resource with right configuration is a time consuming process. Also, there is a huge chance for human error in configuring any specific environment for a specific project

    How we proposed system architecture & metrics

    1.  A simple Do-It-Yourself UI has been delivered to all the engineers. The engineers can just click on the UI and decide what type of system they want to build and drag and drop components
    2. A role-based system is set up behind the screens to control the generation of infrastructure as per the definition in AD(Active Directory) or any other provider
    3. The opportunity was also utilized to identify resources in Azure that were causing a lot of overhead costs and maintenance costs. These were replaced with free open-source alternatives with recommended architecture standards
    4. Applications / Systems built are 100% configurable with adoption to best practices from industry standards including usage of vaults / KMS for secrets

    Engineer Generated Architecture Pattern and Infrastructure

    What are the Benefits of the proposed system

    • Dependency on experienced and mature engineers to be always around to build systems is impossible and costly. We eliminated this need by 100%. Anyone without prior experience can now request/generate and manage infrastructure
    • Cloud agnostic approach of engaging terraform ensured 100% portability for the client to repeat the same across other cloud providers like AWS
    • Tested code for infrastructure ensures that the developers or DevOps engineers do not end up debugging the same issues. Over a period of 3 months, the reliability of systems improved by 60% and will continue to grow
    • Modernization of existing systems as part of this opportunity also reduced unwanted licensing costs
    • Time to market for the infrastructure was reduced from 3 weeks to 1 day. This is a major win for the client to onboard new customers and delivered direct business results
    • Time taken for Change management and propagation of infrastructure changes has significantly reduced from a couple of hours to a couple of mins due to automation in place

    There is a great demand for hiring remote developers. Remote developers are hired to fill up the talent gap, speed up the development process, lower costs, and for flexibility. Finding the right developer is not an easy task In this article, you’ll find how to hire remote developers, including the Hiring and Interview processes

    Hiring Process

    1. Define your Requirements

    The first thing to start with, for hiring a remote developer is to identify the following:
    • Project Requirements
    • Technology Stacks for the Project and
    • Details of Must-have skills and Nice to have skills
    Using the above details, the appropriate job description should be created along with experience and skill level. The description should be clear and concise. It should be a true representation of the role. Then it will be easy to look for Developers

    2. Various Hiring Options

    There are various Hiring Options out of which three are the main hiring Options. Independent Contractors/Freelancers, In-house developers, and Sub-contractors Independent Contractors/Freelancers Freelancers can be chosen if it is a small project. Hiring freelancers will cost less for the company and they will deliver results fast. But there are few disadvantages in hiring freelancers with respect to their loyalty In-house developers In-house developers can be hired to work full time remotely as a part of your Company. The in-house developers can work on multiple projects too though this is a costly option Sub-Contractors Hiring sub-contractors is another option in which they can be hired from an Outsourcing company to work as part of your team. This method has a high level of security and is highly reliable. Either one developer can be hired or an entire team can be hired and payment need not be made at the initial stages

    3. Choosing the Hiring Destination

    You can search for hiring destinations across the globe to find the developers of your choice. Research needs to be done before investing in foreign app developers. Then there should be good communication with the developer to know about their previous works. Since this is going to be a long-term relationship like developing the app, getting feedback from the client and making improvements, adding new features, and so on the right amount of time should be invested in searching for the developers in the hiring destination. There are some popular outsourcing destinations that can be considered. With all these criteria in mind, candidates can be shortlisted

    Interview Process

    1. A quick background check of the short-listed candidate will be the first step of the Interview Process
    2. Initial Screening can be done over the telephone to identify if the candidate can bring any value to the Company and also to find out if they can work independently and be a good team player
    3. Then the technical interview needs to be conducted with technical questions from the technology stack presented in the Description. Technical questions can include questions about past projects, programming languages and frameworks, and software developer tools
    4. Then the next step is making the offer. Pay details and all benefits they are worth should be mentioned
    5. The last step would be the acceptance part by the Candidate. When the candidate accepts the offer the offer letter can be handed over to the candidate which completes the interview process
    There are some common mistakes which many Organizations make while hiring a developer. Some common mistakes are,
    1. Compromise on quality because of the low-cost package offered by a less skilled developer
    2. Bypassing the technical discussion part for the candidate
    3. Hiring a developer who does not have much knowledge about your business or services
    4. Restricting Hiring options without widening the search for enthusiastic developers
    These mistakes should be re-read while hiring developers and avoided in the future. Learning from mistakes will be a step towards success
