When it comes to web application development, many businesses do not
understand the difference between web applications, mobile applications and
traditional software. Additionally, many businesses do not understand the
market reasons to engage in building custom apps and software for managing
business processes, customers and real property (inventory, equipment,
market-driven development to modern technologies, here are some key things to
understand about web application development.
of the older systems of development, waterfall is designed to build the large
business software systems of the past. Modern web and mobile app development
teams use a development system called agile. The difference between waterfall
and agile is simple: in waterfall, each level of development (planning,
engineering, testing) is done in succession by experts isolated from the
various parts of the programming processes.
is a system which employs experts across the entire development process in
concert. Agile development creates your software swiftly, with each section of
the browser based app or software being developed, deployed and tested within
1-4 weeks, so that you have the opportunity to develop your software
the past, applications and even mobile apps were developed over a period of
months or years and tested on smaller markets before being released to the
larger market. Currently both marketplace based apps (Google Play, Windows
Store, App Store) and web software are developed and produced in weeks or
months, because of modern development systems.
Driving Towards Web-Based Development
increased access to internet round-the clock in any location via smartphone
apps and browsers, businesses are scrambling to offer their products and
services via web and cloud based deployments.
more large enterprise companies are offering their software and services on the
cloud (Adobe Creative Cloud, Microsoft Office 365, HuluPlus for TV), consumers
and businesses alike are expecting more access to companies via the internet
and apps. The expectation of access is driving more companies onto web
applications, which drives market expectations. This cycle has been increasing
over the last 3 years and shows little signs of stopping, as the Internet of
Things (IoT) creates more and more opportunities for cloud based
those unfamiliar with the term, the IoT is the term technologists use for the
networking of non-traditional computing items, like refrigerators, lights,
cars, and TVs to name a few.
Based Applications are In
tablet and cell-phone users face overwhelming numbers of apps, many businesses
are moving from their own apps to in-browser software managed by a CMS
(Content Management System). Web applications are now becoming a powerful way
for businesses to access customers, vendors and employees without creating a
based software brings several advantages to the savvy business owner. It
reduces the need for multiple development plans for each device and operating
system down to a much simpler design and development for Chrome, Firefox and
Safari. Browsers share much more in common than operating systems and with
responsive web design, they adapt easily to different screen sizes as
is Easier than Ever
agile development, cloud based deployments and development and browser based
software, businesses have more opportunity and access for outsourcing
software development than ever before. Expert development teams are available
online, and can work closely with your business across any distance to bring
you quality custom software.
mobile nature of web based application development is great for outsourcing in
both development and business processes later down the road. This moves
businesses from rigid, cost heavy structures to more streamlined systems where
many core business processes are outsourced to qualified staffing, engineering
and virtual assistant firms. This gives your business the ability to increase
labor results without increasing labor costs.
