What is RAD?
A technology that consistently delivers software ideas on-time and in budget
Rapid application development (RAD) is a software development methodology used to expedite the application development process. RAD's approach towards software development emphasis more on the adaptive process than on planning.
Stable, simple, minimal efforts, no or less coding and highly flexible
In the RAD model, the functional modules are developed as prototypes and are integrated to form a complete product. There are quick implementation methods wherein features are exposed gradually and changes incorporated immediately. It uses readily available libraries and pre-built components to build applications thus saves time and provides benefits for companies of all sizes.

RAD vs Traditional Development
Though RAD has become popular development methodology still one cannot overlook the benefits of traditional development. Learn the pros of both the development methodologies.
|Application Development Process||Incremental and iterative. The objective is to deliver an application quickly with complete & functional components. Implying that the stages of the development process can be revisited later.||It uses a linear approach to the software development process. Here, a sequence for software development is to be followed.|
|Productivity and Flexibility||High due to the use of pre-defined libraries leading to faster turnaround time.||Visualize and define the project details before starting. Leading to customization at each stage implying high development cycle times for the project.|
|Time and Cost Estimation||Short duration projects with low development and maintenance costs.||Medium to long duration projects with high development and maintenance costs.|
|Testing||Performed at every iteration.||Performed after coding phase.|
|End User Interaction||Extensive.||Involved at the beginning to gather project requirements and at the end to accept the project.|
|Predefined Elements||Use of predefined, tested and ready-to-use applications, themes, etc.||The application and the elements are customized and designed according to the requirements of the end user. Hence, are exclusive to the project.|
Intuz’s Libraries for RAD
Packages to match all your app requirements
It’s a way for an app to send a message or to notify without actually opening the app. It helps in increasing engagement with the app and improves user retention rates. Use Amazon SNS or FCM with or without deep linking to send notifications in the apps.
