Software Integration Process

Software integration is a crucial aspect of software development, especially in the context of a software development company where multiple software components or systems need to work together seamlessly. Integration involves combining different software components, modules, or systems to ensure they function as a unified and cohesive whole. The goal is to enable these components to exchange data and operate in harmony to provide a complete and integrated solution.
