SDLC means Systems Development Life Cycle. In the past, there were some factors that have changed the software engineering practice which have led to the development of a few SDLC models such as the waterfall, spiral, fountain, build and fix, incremental, rapid prototyping, synchronize and stabilize.
One of the factors is the critical time in the marketing of commercial products that can be used in the system. The shift in the computing such as the lower hardware costs but higher maintenance costs is another factor. Powerful desktop computing was readily available at that time. There was also an extensive local ...
