2. Business Model

When developing for the enterprise, you need to completely understand the business model and align it with your marketing and development goals. What is the ROI that you are expecting as a company? This will determine the costs your company can readily invest in it. You will need to work on the existing infrastructure as well.

3. Logical Model

While you are working on the business model, it would make great sense to work on the logic model as well, as that would define your application layer. At this point, you can even work on your application’s object and data modeling.

4. Technology and Architecture

You will need to define the technology and architecture for your application at the planning stage. This will help you develop and deploy your application quickly. You will need to work on the distribution architecture along with the physical architecture. Make sure you have planned for the database technologies at the start.

5. User Model

Defining your interface and experience for the user is very important. Planning should be done from the user’s perspective to give the appropriate experience.
