Benefits of ULM
While it is a popular concept in business practices, many people don’t exactly known what Universal Language is, and more importantly, how it is used in production. As a Unified Modeling Language, this concept is commonly used in software development process and it extremely beneficial to business analysts as it acts as their universal way of communication in their profession.
1. Improves communication
We all know that communication is the best way to solve any problem. But, you need to speak in a way that is clear to communicate with co-workers effectively. The main problem nowadays is that many have different opinions about the title ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œ’business analyst” in the organization. For that reason, UML improves communication, allowing better communication in accomplishing software specification, design, visualization, testing, construction, as well as documentation.
2. Speeds up performance
Once better communication has been achieved, problems are easily solved and queries are resolved quickly. Since software development entails several complex processes, speed is a prerequisite to ensure that there is meaningful development, and the set goals attained within the time frame. Business analysts that use UML to bring software developers geared towards a common goal are able to come up with better solutions.
3. Better development processes
Once the model has been completed, team members can use it as a reference and identify changes that need to be made. Apart from improving the development process, the system has reduced development costs. With UML, developers are able to solve many obstacles that were a hard nut to crack in the past, not to mention the fact that it provides an excellent opportunity for teams seeking to develop advanced applications.
4. Increases efficiency
Since software design comes first, developers can use a custom code in multiple applications, thereby helping to reduce software development costs.
While there are no known disadvantages of UML in software development, it might become difficult to comprehend sometimes.
