The bespoke software development industry is growing with every passing year and its importance is also continuously on the rise. According to a recent survey conducted by Information Technology (IT) Decision Makersreleased by Appian, 87% IT decision-makers believe that custom software will be the driving technology in the near future. Whether the bespoke software is developed by a companyâs internal IT team or is made through outsourced development, more and more people are going for custom-made solutions. According to the survey 97% respondents were confident of using custom software while 94% recommended its use to others. One of the primary reasons why bespoke software development UK is seeing such an upsurge is that it lends a competitive edge to a company.
Software development today is about advanced development tools which have greater impact, and powerful options.The need to eliminate coding, making it more viable for companies to operate on the web and also improve the web app capabilities by leaps and bounds are other reasons why bespoke app development is such a rage today. Surely this means that there are a few trends to watch out for, at least for the remaining half of 2015. Letâs take a look at them.
- Need for Seamless User Experience Across Devices -Gone are the days when web development companies had to decide whether they wanted a native app or a mobile web app. today users look for the omni-channel experience, that is, the convergent use of mobile, desktop and self-service platforms. With the increasing demand for seamless user experience, bespoke application developers have to up their ante and adopt HTML5 in a big way.
- Reliance on Numerous Development Tools - The ultimate requirement of a software or app is allowing the user to manage the application without continual assistance. To achieve this there is a need to rely on numerous developmental tools. As web application development becomes complex, developers have to adapt and evolve. They have to develop complex and powerful programs yet keep things simple.
- Decline of Native Development - Time has come when adapting to newer technology and behavior is a business requirement. For software development companies to remain on the top it is essential they create powerful mobile apps with HTML5. This naturally means that there will be a decrease in use of native apps.
- Easy Integration with Web Services - When the world is moving to the cloud, there is possibly no reason for bespoke software development companies to stay behind. It has almost become necessary for developers to create apps that can easily communicate with other applications. No wonder there is such a rapid growth in APIs (application programming interfaces). New software have to be developed keeping in mind the integration factor. Ultimately software that can easily be integrated with existing systems via accessible APIs and web services will find more users.
