You're beginning to build software for your organization. It's a big project and you've got a lot of ideas about how it will work, who it will serve and how you want it to look. It's an exciting time but before you go any further, it's time to stop and ask yourself some important questions.

App and custom software development is all about particulars. Before you even start, you need to know exact details about what and who you're designing the software for and why you're designing it. Else you risk wasting time, money and resources on software that isn't a good fit for the job you want it to do.
Luckily, it's easy to properly vet your idea. Stop right now and ask yourself these seven questions:

Do you know your users?
What problem is the software trying to solve?
Does your idea actually solve the problem?
Are there competitors?
What technology will the software run on?
How will the initial build proceed?
Do you have a post-launch plan?
