Rapid application development (RAD) software provides programmers and developers with the tools necessary to build an application quickly from start to finish. Rapid application development refers to a method that development teams use to build new applications quickly and with an emphasis on releasing frequent prototypes. This model allows for high business involvement by focusing less on planning, and more on releasing a working prototype which garners reactions and critiques from users. With RAD software, development teams can be flexible in the development lifecycle, with applications evolving over time with input from business involvement and user reaction from previous models.
