    The systems development life cycle
    (SDLC) also referred to as the application development life cycle.

  • Kamran Ibrahim

    There are six phases of SDLC.
    1.Requirement Gathering and Analysis.
    2.System Analysis.
    3. System Design.

    What is full form of SDLC? Does it part of QA dept. or entire IT company?

    Fullform of SDLC is Software Development Life Cycle. It involves all the departments of IT company.

    The various departments like
    -> Executive Committee members,
    -> Project/Product Managers and Business Analyst group,
    -> Software Developers team including System Architects and Software Engineers,
    -> QA Team including Test Managers and Testers
    -> Operations team -including System Administrators, Support team (help desk), Network Operations team, NOC team etc., all together will be a involved in the SDLC.
