Application Design and Development

Overview

The Division of Information Technology can create custom web applications that integrate cleanly with departmental work processes and are tailored to meet specific needs. Web applications are programs that can be accessed through a web browser via the Internet. They allow information to be organized, distributed and collected cheaper, faster and more efficiently than traditional methods. Your customers and employees can use them to access a wide variety of services such as purchasing products, managing schedules, submitting evaluations or tracking information.

Our developers can create applications that are easy to use, effective, accessible and secure.

  • Provide various user access levels and privileges.
  • Interface your application with university systems.
  • Establish secure online payment processing.
  • Create customized reports and other analysis tools.

Service Details

We highly encourage a cooperative effort between the development or support team and the customer to identify the nature and scope of your needs and to define a suitable solution. We are committed to keeping you informed throughout a process of providing support or designing a custom application:
  • Preliminary requirements and risk analyses offer better understanding of project direction and feasibility.
  • Written descriptions of work to be completed including project descriptions and detailed cost estimates.
  • Detailed design documents provide a blueprint for building new applications.
  • Regular meetings and status reports keep you informed of project requirements and progress.

Planning and Documenting Design Concepts

We develop new applications and systems or modify and add to existing systems using standardized development processes. Design specifications provide a necessary blueprint for building your application. Through the design process, you and our team members communicate not only project needs and requirements, but also stumbling blocks and constraints. A common understanding that defines the system is documented by our team. This thorough, professional documentation reduces miscommunication, misconceptions and mistakes and is invaluable for future maintenance, troubleshooting and upgrading.
