The popular phrase 'if you build it, they will come' is certainly not true in the world of software development. The software must meet special needs or you risk having a 'Nightmare Net' rather than 'Field of Dreams'. Technology adoption is not only about the software package used but also the processes it supports and the people who use it.
Therefore when starting a bespoke software development project the people who will use it are very important. For this reason, the standard software development life cycle starts with the requirements gathering phase.

The software development life cycle model describes the cycle phases and sequential sequences in which they are carried out. There are various models of this and some companies can even adopt themselves but all have the same approach because they generally cover requirements, design, implementation, and testing.
Each phase produces the results needed to start the next phase in the life cycle. The requirements collected are translated into designs. Code is produced during implementation to produce the functionality required by the design. Testing verifies that the code works and meets the requirements.
Almost all software projects produce something for others to use either staff members or customers and aim to solve problems, take advantage of opportunities or meet demands such as increasing productivity in certain fields.
The benefit of opting for a bespoke software solution is that it is made specifically for your specific needs and can be designed to suit the way your business or organization already operates and that it can be adapted to interact with other software that you operate.
Also because users and stakeholders are consulted during the requirements collection process, bespoke software solutions usually result in increased purchases because users find it easier and more intuitive to use.
