“All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection.” — David Wheeler
The basic software product development process involves figuring out the business’s unique needs and coming up with a solution that is specifically tailored to meet their requirements. There are many ways to do this, but a good software product development service will choose the optimal model that will work the best for your organization.

Product Development Methodology
As with any business sector, software product development methodologies also differ from provider to provider. These methodologies are generally about how products are built and delivered to the clientele, but they are also used on a broader scale. The specific approach that a development team takes when working on a project largely impacts the entire method sequence of developing the product itself.
Although product development methodologies vary greatly across different business sectors, they do follow a generalized foundation for the process. Here are some of the most popular software product development methodologies, alongside how they contribute to management work.
This methodology was first developed by Toyota, aiming to improve the overall manufacturing process. It is a workflow management method that greatly emphasizes the consistent delivery of valued products.
Structured around the basic business principles, Kanban is centered on visualizing work to improve collaboration, decreasing workload burden, and increasing the flow of business. Some services use Kanban alongside Agile methodology, which is next up on our list.
Agile is a hybrid of many different types of software development methodologies. It majorly focuses on promoting a repetitive and renewed approach to software delivery services. Agile aims mainly at helping software teams respond quicker and more efficiently to customer demands, reducing the amount of hassle in the workflow and ultimately resulting in better product delivery. Many companies are adopting this software product development plan to work faster and improve services.
Scrum is a unique product development methodology whose focal point is to deliver services in time-boxed efforts that are called ‘sprints’. The working of a sprint involves several steps. The development team has to set a sprint goal, choose specific items from the company’s product logs, and then decide on the level of work they wish to complete. When the sprint is over, the team presents their work to business stakeholders, who then review it and decide it if is up to the mark.
This approach to product development is a great way to specify exactly where certain problems may lie in the development process, making it easier to improve steps along the product lifecycle.
This method relies heavily on a sequential, step-by-step approach that involves delivering products in phases. Industries such as manufacturing and construction generally enjoy the benefits of this methodology, as their production process involves a linear construction of products.
This approach works very well for businesses whose requirements are very clearly outlined, with little to no chance of any fluctuation mid-process. The waterfall method emphasizes delivering a particular scope of work when the project has been completed.

Software as a Service, or SaaS, is when the software is centrally hosted, and users need to buy a subscription to be able to use it. For example, Google Apps and Amazon Web Services can each be labeled Software as a Service.

- What is meant by software product? Give an example.
Software products are generally software systems that are delivered to the customer. The customer has to follow certain guidelines to understand how to install and use the system. An example of software as a product is Microsoft Office, which is usually distributed using CD-ROM, physical media, or downloaded online. In contrast with Microsoft Office is Office 365, which is an example of software as a service, as customers have to sign up for a monthly subscription to use it.
