Over the last 18 years as a tech entrepreneur, one thing is for sure, technology is changing so fast no one can keep up. So it begs the question, why try?
The reason to try is evolution. Technology is going to evolve whether businesses do or not. It’s up to us to figure out a way to harness what we can and create something people need.
Evolution forces us to push beyond the boundaries (let’s face it, with technology we’ll always be in a constant state of update), it’s reason we’re tech in the first place.
Speed. Yep. There it is. The word we hear most often when it comes to solving technology problems (in fact, we’ve heard it so much it is part of our message). The fact is speed matters. A first to market product requires technology that accelerates. Aligning the development process, without compromising functionality or form, means taking best-in-class software and configuring it to meet the intended experience.
Combinations. Creating web and mobile software to solve complex problems always involves some level of custom code. Building that code and connecting to legacy systems, essentially making it new, provides exactly the kind of challenge developers crave. Coined the hybrid approach, companies combine their internal expertise with an outside dev team, giving them access to various capabilities and cheaper origination costs.
Deliver at a clip. Rapid prototyping has been in practice for years. Prioritizing capabilities that must be built vs. nice-to-haves, gives developers the ability to make pieces of software independently, creating components that can be released quickly, and stitched together later, delivering a result that meets business needs.
The Apex. The point and reason why companies build software is to create a competitive edge. Faster development processes provide ways to test solutions in real-time and go to market with a higher chance of success. First to market, built with the end in mind.
Evolution led us to a new software development approach. As our client’s needs evolved, we evolved with them. Leveraging existing frameworks, adding best-in-class tools and then customizing based on the client and business need. It’s Rapid Application Development (or RAD as the industry calls it)
