To Map, Understand, Analyze and Develop, Test, Review and deliver Client’s – Existing or New Technology infrastructure.
Following possible scenarios can be considered
- Scenario 1 Mobile: server, hardware & configuration
- Scenario 2 Fixed: Desktop, server, hardware & configuration
- Or Combination of Mobile + Fixed Infrastructure
The Modus operandi / need / pitch / approach:
- Additions in Existing Technology Infrastructure
- New Technology Infrastructure – to be Developed
- Modification / Alteration in existing Technology Infrastructure
- Part modification – Few Elements / Tech
- Complete modification – All Elements / Tech
Approach as Service:
- What is Right?
- What is Static?
- What is missing?
- As per Infrastructure
- As per Requirement
- As per Gap
- Identified Gaps to be Plugged in
- Is Current Infrastructure dynamic / upgradable?
- Does the Output meet Desired or is Static as earlier
- Open / Unsecure
A mobile application, most commonly known as an app, this is a Customizable and Dynamic application software designed to run on a mobile device, like smartphone or tablet. Mobile Apps frequently serve to provide users with similar services to those accessed on PCs. Apps are small & individual software units with limited function.
Mobile Application has to be developed: Required as
- Marketing & Communication tool
- POS & Order Booking
- Invoice Generation & Tax Input to accounting System
- Aligned with CRM
- Updates aligned from existing web portal (Like order / enquiry from portal)
- API’s to CRM
- Output storage & Retrieval
- API’s to Storage & Servers
- Compatibility with platforms
- Security & Disaster Recovery
Mobile compatibility is checking or validating that application behaves as expected across the combination of mobile devices and browsers that customers will be using to access your application.
Strategies behind App development
Leveraging Cloud-Technology for Mobile App has various advantages over traditional tools. Development on cloud provides benefits like standardization, flexibility, agility, and operational cost savings making the cloud model too alluring. Developers can develop from anywhere with cloud without having to install and maintain infrastructure. From customer’s perspective cloud-based mobile app provides a smooth learning curve and faster on-boarding process for new users.
- Enhancing Data Security
The fact is users doesn’t care about data security and privacy while using the apps, hence making it vital for developers to take precautions rather than taking actions after data leakage. Some of the security issues in mobile app development can be insecure data storage, weak server side controls, unintended data leakages, broken cryptography, etc. When using cloud-based development platforms, it is crucial to know what kind of data and user protection mechanisms, techniques and practices are utilized in data centers of service providers. Security is achieved by encryption and SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificates and if we fail to use the proper SSL libraries, user’s crucial information can be at risk.
- Performance of Mobile App
Customers hate when the Mobile apps crash or they slow down or hung up for few seconds. As a consequence, customers may leave a one-star rating and bad reviews for the app, abandoning it. Mobile App crashes even causes issues like losing user’s data. Organizations need to consider Memory Management, Software Lifecycle, Inadequate Testing, Network management, Error condition and Exception handling in mobile app development strategy.
- Monetization Strategy
It has been estimated by Analysts that app-related revenues will reach scale high by 2020. Intelligently structuring your mobile apps creates huge opportunity to convert visitors to buyers. The key is to scatter the app capacities in such a way that customer lean towards the feeling of using the chargeable features. This call-to-action should show interconnected features thus provoking users to purchase the entire package ultimately.
Mobile ads allow app companies to earn without asking money from their users, Mobile app developers goal is to generate huge customer base and gather relevant information to sell to other brands who pay them to place targeted ads in the mobile app.
Another approach companies use for making money from free mobile apps is Sponsorship. Here the companies partner with advertisers that provide the app users with rewards for completing certain actions within the app.
- Shifting Focus from App Downloads to Continuous Engagement
The first focus of mobile app developers is achieving maximum downloads, but an app isn’t successful unless it drives user engagement. Developers should work with the end clients at the design phase to better understand the features that are most in demand. This can be possible with the inbuilt analytics of the Mobile apps. It can even help App Developers understand the user experience across the entire application lifecycle and to measure adoption and engagement.
Mobile App / software creation should have following tenets and outlook:
- Target – Niche segment, masses
- Brand awareness as Priority
- Revenue maximization
- Operational excellence.
- Versions / users
