The challenges of building apps
In this connected world, business success is increasingly dependent on technology. Businesses need apps to stay competitive, and to introduce new products and services enabled by software. Building an app is a significant investment, in terms both of the costs of engaging a software developer and the investment of time by the business.
Building an app presents a range of challenges, including:
- Defining what the app will do. Within the constraints of budget and schedule what are the essential features?
- Ensuring that that app is attractive and easy to use, so that it will be well received by the customers.
- Selecting an app developer who is capable of satisfying the business’s requirements.
- Monitoring build progress to ensure that development is on schedule.
- Integrating the app with existing systems.
- Deploying the app into a suitable production environment – one that provides best value, and that is suitably robust and secure.
- Establishing a support arrangement. Finding the appropriate party to manage the software and infrastructure, to resolve issues, and to make software updates after go-live.
We provide software development and consulting services that address these challenges. With decades of experience in software development, including app, browser and cloud we work with the business, from initial concept to go-live.
We offer software development services at a highly competitive price by working with appropriately skilled people at the best rates. We will manage the entire process, from initial concept, to software development, and go-live. Key to success is having great people and using the most suitable technology, with predictable and reliable processes. We oversee all of these. The principals hand-pick the team members from our network of developers, define the technologies, and then maintain control and oversight of the implementation process.
We can manage the entire application development, from concept to delivery. Based on the product roadmap we provide all the resources required to define, build, test and deploy your product.
Initially, we will describe the application’s behaviour explicitly in ways meaningful for you and your customer. This will likely include preparing user interface mock-ups. By taking advantage of continuous integration and continuous delivery, there will be a running, testable application from early on. You can have as much involvement in reviewing and testing the application as you choose. Through this, you may identify refinements to the product. These can then be scheduled and factored into the build process.
In addition to building and testing the application, we define and prepare the deployment infrastructure, such as AWS or Azure. We will provide documentation necessary for ongoing operation of the production system. We can also help you to prepare for transition to production, including assisting with identifying a suitable production partner.
We offer the following services, from initial assessment to project delivery:
- Product roadmap The roadmap outlines the product stages, from initial concept through to design, build, test and deployment. It identifies the various skills that will be required at each of these stages.
- Cost estimation We will provide an estimate of how long it will take and how much it will cost to build the app
- Risk assessment We will appraise you of the technical risks and provide a strategy for addressing them
- App development We deliver the full range of systems, including mobile, web, cloud, business intelligence, machine learning and AI
We work with you to establish the technical architecture using the industry standard technologies, including:
- Web: PHP, Java, Node.js, React.js, Angular, .NET
- Mobile: iOS, Android, Xamarin
- Database: MySQL, SQL Server, Mongo DB
- Cloud: AWS, Azure
