Information systems are the support infrastructure that helps an organization change quickly when adapting to shifting business environments and markets. Many factors must come together to develop successful software. The systems development life cycle (SDLC) , also known as the “software life cycle” or the “application life cycle,” is the overall process for developing information systems from planning and analysis through implementation and maintenance.
A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product or service. According to the Project Management Institute, project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities in order to meet or exceed stakeholder needs and expectations from a project. Project management software specifically supports the long-term and day-to-day management and execution of the steps in a project (such as building a new warehouse or designing and implementing a new IT system).
